NFSV + Windows 8.1 = :-(

Recommended Posts

I want to play Need For Speed: Porsche 2000 on Windows 8.1. It is limited at ~22 FPS and I have recent hardware. It is not just an Nvidia issue as it happens with my ATI card as well. I have tried messing around with compatibility settings but that didn't help. Anyone know how to improve it?

Maybe you should dual boot with an older OS, you seem to be constantly having issues getting old games running.

You'll find most of the time you're fighting a losing battle, especially considering newer hardware isn't as good with older versions of Direct X as the cards of that actual era are.

 

If you're really interested in playing older games, you'll probably want to look into getting a dedicated pentium gaming box.

I know this may be a silly question, but have you installed DX9 as well?

No. Is that even possible?

Windows 7 only had DX10 installed, so in order to get The Sims 2 to work, I also installed DX9. Windows won't overwrite DX10 files but instead will allow old and new versions of DX to work side by side. Just make sure you set a restore point then give it a shot.

It works fine on Windows 7. Back to Windows 7 for me!

You probably have tried but,...Forced Win98/NT2000 in compatibility settings for single core only.

Forcing Singlecore only, this has helped some games in the past.
