Question Windows 8 compatibility.

My backup computer, with a second copy of the game, just blew up, so it looks like a replacement will have to be obtained.

The game runs well on XP. But, XP is on the way out. Will it run equally well on Windows 8?

- test the game. If it crashes, try this:

--- after starting TBCB, click on "Options" and uncheck the three sound options (play music, play sound, play crowd noises). On my computer, TBCB crashed with sound activated and worked fine after disabling sound. I know, this is only a work around to make it run somehow, sorry. But it will also show that the problem has something to do with the sound API code which I used for TBCB 2.5.

--- right click on the TBCB shortcut and click on "Properties", then open the "Compatibility" tab. Select "Run in compatibility mode for Windows XP" and try again.

Thumbs up

Thanks Lee (and Andreas). When I get the new computer, I'll give it a try (so please keep the answer up for awhile).
