Does Maximum Football work for Windows 8? I'm trying to play, I get the initial screen, but black out right after the intro screen. Any ideas?

The best thing option for any operation system after XP is to install the game on something other than the C: drive. If you have a second drive on your PC or an external drive, put it on that and give it a go. It seems to have solved the "New OS" issues most people have come across.

Other than that, I'm still running Vista, so I have no other suggestions.

I tried running Maximum Football on Windows 8 as well, and ran into the same issue as Moose.
I changed the compatibility mode to no avail....
The initial Matrix Games start up screen runs with no issues, however when the game starts there is just a black screen.

If anyone has any ideas how to overcome this......I would give them a laurel and hardy handshake!

And Dennnnnnnnnnn.........

Try running the game in window mode.

Just create a .txt file and drop it in the Maximum Football folder, called windowmode.txt

Don't write anything in the file.

This will pop the game into a window instead of full-screen. Resolution on this is locked to 800x600.

Let me know if you have any success with this.

Creating the windowmode.txt file worked great for me. Thanks for the suggestion!

How to get a DxDiag report file:

1. Click on "START" (on Windows 8 press “Windows key” and the “R” key at the same time)
2. Click "run" (skip this step on Windows 8)
3. Type in "dxdiag" and click "OK"
4. Check through the tabs and perform all tests
5. Click "Save all Information..." and save the text file to a location of your choice

We prefer that DxDiag files be posted as message attachments rather than pasted into the body of the post.

add the exe of the game to your Anti Virus and firewall program, to make sure check the logs of these to see if it was one of them which was to blame.

That usually means a 3rd party program, like an Internet security programs, is interfering with the game or update installation.

run the game from a admin account and use full admin permissions.

please make sure all game pre requisite are installed with the game, even if you think or fully know there are already installed, it will only over write, and it may be that you have a older or newer version of these where as the game in question may need a certain version.

please make sure you are running the latest game version and have up to date drivers installed on you pc,

If you have the original version. So you'll need to update it from the Internet.
Please note that you'll only need the last update, as our updates are comprehensive.

i recently bought this game and have the same problem. i can't even play the game. now its doing the activeX thing now.

i don't want to be discouraged that i payed money for a seven year old game that should still work on modern systems like wins 10. there is not even a customizable american football game like this one.

Somebody, please help
