Hello

Someone know (Calamity, Beta testers..) if next CRT EmuDriver Win7 will be compatible with Windows 8 ?

I've Windows 8 (with legal licence) and I don't want buy a new one for Win7.


There's a trick for use old drivers on the newer system, but i don't know if i can apply this trick for your drivers :

The drivers I'm using are version 13.1 which supports both W7 & W8. So the problem should not be the drivers being old. The problem, however, is W8 won't allow you to install unsigned drivers. Well, you can go into advanced boot options and disable the signature enforcement but you need to do that manually each time you boot, there's no way to disable it permanently as you could in W7.
Important note: posts reporting GM issues without a log will be IGNORED.
Steps to create a log:
 - From command line, run: groovymame.exe -v romname >romname.txt
 - Attach resulting romname.txt file to your post, instead or pasting it.

Thank you for your prompt reply !

A little bit annoying indeed, if i must tweak each time i boot w8...
Well let's go to found/buy w7 license  :).

Congrat for your hardwork, your driver is very popular here in France. Many of my friends use it in  their mamecab  :applaud:

Have you ever actually USED a computer with Windows 8 on it?  I never wanted to smash a computer so much in my life.  It's frustrating on every level.  It feels like Microsoft actually went out of their way to make things MORE difficult to use.  If people think Vista was a flop, you ain't seen nothing yet.
