Problem with Freespace 2 Open
So after a few years I decided to return to FreeSpace and have installed on my Current PC, this is an Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3570K CPU @ 3.40GHz, with a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti graphics card running Windows 8 (I know but due to work I needed Hyper-V) it has 16GB of RAM.

However when I try and start Launcher (5.5g) I get an error message: Failed EnumAdapterModes in UpdateAntialiasList and when I go to the Video tab the screen resolution dropdown box is empty.

The game will launch and play but as a small screen in the top left, does anyone have any ideas?

If I run the native game (GOG download version) it runs full screen 800x600 (i think) with no problem, but on a 1920 monitor I want all the nice graphics!

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

That is weird. Can you post us a debug log ?

Try putting -res 1920x1080 in the "Custom flags" field of your Feature tab.

Or try with wxLauncher instead of 5.5g.
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

The 5.5g launcher does not work correctly on Win8.

Luckily, there is an alternative that doesn't have these issues

That seemed to do the trick, thanks  ;)

Ah, if maintenance of the old Windows launcher is being halted, does that mean wxLauncher will become the official soon? Sw33t!

Re: Problem with Freespace 2 Open
Not halted, exactly, but considering that Win 8 is the only OS with this issue, it's pretty definitely low priority.
