Windows 8.1 and blank terrain - 2/10/2014 6:31:09 PM

I have had this game for some years and it has worked so far. When I tried to install it on a new machine with Windows 8.1 64 bit, here is what happened:
The original version 1.1 installed and runs, but the terrain is blank. Update to 1.20 does not change anything (I have tried everything else - running the application as administrator, turning off antivirus and firewall and changing some settings). Other than blank terrain, everything else runs.

The ogre says ''Cannot find grass.dds, will be left blank.'' This did not cause any trouble at all on my old machine but the new one cannot handle it. The game reinstalls without errors but reinstall does not change anything.

The problem may be the ''RGB issue for Windows 8.1'' so I am looking forward to an interesting weekend reinstalling my graphics drivers.

ogre is not responsible for the problem, it gave the same error message on my old machine but the game displays correctly even in v.1.11.
btw the same RGB issue also affects Geamany at War. The terrain looks brown, creating a ''Fascists on the Mars effect''. Otherwise the game runs.

Hello,

sorry for the late reply, i only look in here from time to time, not on a regular bases. Could you resolve the problem by adjusting the drivers or does it persist ?

Regards,

Hi,

The battle with the graphic drivers has been postponed since I wanted to install the rest of the games first. Now when everything else works, the battle with RGB will start.

It is an issue with this game and also Germany at War. Nothing changed after reinstalling the graphic drivers.
I will keep those two games on my other computer that uses Windows 7.

Other games run on Windows 8.1.

Let me know if you have a solution, otherwise we can wait for the next Win 8 service pack.

Hello Marechal,

OB does not deliver detailed information, but as you own Germany at War, too : could you send us a screenshot that shows the problem and the corresponding logs you can find at: C:\Users\YourName\AppData\Local\Germany at War ?

Thanks in advance & Regards,
