CO and Windows 8

It looks as though I'll have to buy a new PC and these days the MS Windows ones aren't supposed to be sold with any operating system earlier than Windows 8.

My search for CO system requirements came up with a page saying I need Windows 2000, Windows XP or Windows Vista, though it was running well using Windows 7. What's the situation with running CO using Windows 8 these days, please?

win 8.1 will be free if you end up with a pc that just has 8 no worries

then make sure you download start8 or buy it for the $5 or whatever, totally worth it

Thanks, when I've managed to pick a PC I'll bear that in mind.

Has anyone tried playing using a Intel Core i5-4460 Processor and no graphics card, please? My friend reckons I probably don't need a graphics card to play CO with an i5.

well its going to have some kindof video processing, the i5 will let you run like 1 nice client or 3 laggy clients most likely. and ill assume the video memory will be shared from your normal ram. do yourself a favor and get a laptop or whatever your getting with ANYTHING with an actual video card in it or youll just hate yourself.

as for the windows 8.1 guys that didnt know that its free. the regular windows 8 system will randomly have a popup on boot suggesting you download win 8.1 for free. if you want to force it for free search online on how to do it manually or maybe its just under windows updates?

Unfortunately, too late! But thanks anyway. The pc arrived today and I'm about to start trying to set it up.

If I played CO all the time as I used to, or if I were still working and earning decent money then, yes, it would be worth spending a few hundred extra. If it's really too horrible to use, this should have room to put in a graphics card.

It'll work fine on an integrated graphics card.

Stop with spreading bs. The game is 10 years old. Of course it works with an i5 with only the integrated graphic unit.

to op: make sure you disable hyper v on 8.1 in case you have visual studio with windows phone developing sdk, otherwise game won't start.
