Does Requiem Work for Windows 8?
"As of this writing we do not currently support Windows 8 for Requiem." However, there are a few ways to possibly get the Requiem client to work in a Windows 8 environment. Please be advised that we cannot guarantee that any of these methods work due to variables with the OS.
Option A: Open in Windows 8 Compatibility Mode
You can try possibly running Requiem in Windows 8 Compatibility Mode. To run a program in Compatibility Mode See the following link: http://www.forumswindows8.com/tutorials/windows-8-compatibility-mode-5264.htm We suggest running RO in the "Windows XP Compatibility mode".
Option B: Clear your Anti-Virus
This depends on what anti-virus program you are using. But we have seen reports of Windows 8 anti-virus programs treating Requiem as a "False-Positive" or the program thinking that Requiem is a virus. If you have installation issues or have trouble launching your game check your anti-virus program and set Requiem as an exception.
Option C: Run in Windowed Mode
Are you lagging in W8? Running Requiem in windowed mode may improve performance.
A) Open the Requiem setup (make sure to run as Admin or this may not work.)
B) Set the game to run in windowed mode.
C) See if it improves performance.
