Windows 10, how to run?
Hey there,

I try to play MCO (lates build) under Windows 10 64 bit.

Sadly the gameplay suffers from heavy visual lag and it looks rendered like software mode. Even in the main menue it all looks very unclear. On my laptop it runs fine, and is smooth and nice.

I have an Nvidia EVGA 980 TI and it looks like that card is not supported by the game.

I can play but it looks bad and runs very slow.

I tried much things.. clean new install, older version, different compatibilty settings etc. etc. etc.

Is there any way to get it running smooth and nice under windows 10 with such a card? I do not want to downgrade drivers.. any other solution?

Thanks

Turn vertical synchronisation off.
Close other software like Browsers, Media players and so on.
Set graphic Driver back to older version if possible.

Sadly nothing of that helped.

Running it as an admin and deactivating fullscreenoptimisation helped but then there was a new major windows update and since then, its back to "software rendering and visual lag".

Rolling back my driver is something that I won´t do.

I hope there is more to do, otherwise thanks for your help :)

Does the graphic card come with a control panel interface? Its where you can set options for individual programs.

Set everything to 'off' or 'set by application' for the MCO exe.

And run as admin.

Re: Windows 10, how to run?
I used the Nvidia Control Panel and made all to "set by application" - sadly that did not help.

It already is running as an administrator.

Strangely my intel Notebook onboard card runs it fine. Only my PC with my Nvidia Card has that problems.

 
Re: Windows 10, how to run?
Maybe a strange question: Did you installed "DirectPlay" on Windows 10?
Maybe this can help.

To graphic settings:

Setting by application only works when application was made for this card or supports it. I bet this old software doesn´t. So i recommend setting options for that application manually to minimum and "best performance". Try to run it with 32bit/16bit maximum and put vertical synchronisation off..

Start the game.exe with Windows XP SP2 compability - enhancing options off.

Just tried that all - still no effect sadly. Even in the main menu the mec is blurry and I can´t read the text next to the mec.

Try this:

extract attached files into your MCO installation folder.

if these files are already there; delete both.

Start game and report if any effect.

Sadly that did not have any effect.

I tried to attach a photo from my smartphone how the menu looks, but that was denied ^^

  
Re: Windows 10, how to run?
Question: did you upgrade from  a prior Win OS or make fresh installs of WIN 10?

I experienced that on two upgraded PCs it runs just perfectly fine and on a fresh installed Win 10 it does what you described.
I believe the key is in the difference between upgrading and fresh installing; Just what exactly creates this downfall in performance on a fresh install? Something must be missing in fresh install that is still used available and  after upgrading.

On the fresh installed PC none of any countermeasures described here or elsewhere made a difference for me; no effect.
