    New Bug Windows 8 loads all glitchy

    To put it short, I use ZC 2.50, but when I load Zelda Classic, it glitches out. Zelda Quest works fine though.

    Why is this?

    Is this a full screen issue? (Does the problem occur in windowed mode?)

    Install this program, by our very own @BFeely .

    https://www.williamfeely.info/wiki/DXGL

    Once installed, add Zelda Classics program file and hit apply. Then test again.

    cad: Is this verified as a working solution to the allegro and win7/8 issues people have? Is there any noticeable problems or issues from it?

    @Gleeok Works perfect, no issues that I've seen. @Ventus has had very good results as well.

    Great. I'll let people know about it when it comes up (which it does).


    Also have to mention the irony here that Microsoft Windows breaks backwards compatibility with core DirextX components and OpenGL comes in to save the day!!

    I can safely say it does work wonders. :) But I'm not using Windows 8 no more... could not stand the buggyness of it and went back to my windows 7 ultimate :3

    Also fixes the glitchy palettes in Windows 7 and below without having to kill Explorer.exe

    Ah it does, does it? I'll have to give that a try!. I've been killing the Explorer to get a much better performance out of ZC.
