    Default FM 2012 + Windows 8 Preview ?

    Could we confirm that FM 2012 is not compatible with W8 Preview ?

    Ever since I've upgraded to the preview OS, I get "this game is currently unavailable" error.

    Verifying game cache and renaming client,registry.blob did not work.

    Should I downgrade ?

    Works fine for me, I'm using it now. Try reinstalling.

    If you're planning to buy Windows 8 then yes, but fair warning- it's not for everyone. I like it but I know others who hate it.

    anyone suggest a workaround for my problems with Windows 8 and FM2012?

    tried reinstalling via steam but its not wanting to play ball

    game runs fine but every time I start a match it freezes a few minutes into the game i'm assuming as the game tries to switch from 2d to 3d all I get is it hanging then checking in task manager says its not responding

    being steam its patched to the latest version I've tried re downloading verifying game cache etc and running 3 different saves

    any suggestions guys and girls?

    Check the driver on the graphics card- it may need a different or later one for W8
