    There is currently a bug which prevents S4 League to run on Windows 8.1 (which just got released) for some users.
    As soon as you update you might not be able to play S4 League anymore.

    GameOn had months to solve that issue while Windows 8.1 was still in beta - but sadly they didn't.

    Do you even realize that they can't adjust game to Win 8.1 while it is beta version? Game client compatibility issue can be solved only when new OS or update for it gets officially released and not a day sooner. Also it doesn't fall into ''bug'' category at all since client simply isn't adjusted for Win 8.1 at this moment.

    Windows 8.1 is not in a beta version anymore , why couldn't they use the RC to adjust the game ?
    Updating to 8.1 causes xtrap crashes but it works.

    It got officially released today and that's the reason WHY I am complaining: the issue wasn't solved in time.

    It still gives random invalid operating system and corrupted file errors. 3 of my friends updated to Win 8.1 today.

    For me and a friend it just gives random errors from time to time. The other one switched back to win 8.0 because he couldn't start it at all. The fourth one is still trying everything he can do to get it run.

    You expect them to do that in few hours time? Just wait for next patch and maybe they will have a solution by then.

    Apparently yes. I will just wait few more years till they decide to make OS for PC's again rather than thing which is good for nothing. ( Check how low are all device sales using various win8 versions).

    I don't get all the ppl complaining about W8, acting like it was Vista, Windows 8 is basically Windows 7 with the Modern UI.
    I expect them to do it with the RC so the problem wont affect the final version , S4 is the only game I have problems with 8.1

    Well, the other online games uses X-Trap? No?
    Since other games like Crossfire that uses X-Trap is affected by it.

    Too lazy to read through all posts.

    Did W8 remove the compatibility mode or something?

    This is the same thing that happened with Windows 8 release. The problem isn't the actual game, it is simply X-Trap. Despite the fact that Windows releases a version early for developers to fix compatibility issues before their release. X-Trap of course is always lagging behind because of their incompetence.

    Just wait a couple weeks/months, use a virtual PC, or other less savory methods.

    Also to the kiddies still listening to public hype about Windows 8. It actually IS better than Windows 7, runs smoother, boots faster, and with the addition Start 8 you have virtually the same desktop set-up as W7. You don't even need to use Metro UI.

    They had 3 months to fix compatibility.
    I sincerely doubt that GameOn is that stupid to boot from a developer preview (hurr, you know, the preview DEVELOPERS use so they can fix the software they make to run on the new OS?), and fix xtrap in a matter of hours?

    Or are they?

    W8 isn't that bad though once you're done customizing it. (and no, not the W8 standard customizing features)

    Besides, it's better than W7 performance wise.

    xtrap doesn't supports beta versions of windows.
    If it is really officially released there will be a fix soon most likely.

    windows 8.1 and windows 8 don't really have a difference .... its just the start button came back and you get multitask more easier or something like that, so just stick with windows 8 first since games can run perfectly fine in windows 8 but with windows 8.1 might take days or week for developers to fix on it .. and also if you update windows 8.1 your apps in windows 8 will get deleted and you will have to re install it .. so its best to stay with windows 8.
    Some people might be really eager to get windows 8 .1 since the start button is back...
    but anyways it's your choice, if you really want windows 8.1 then go ahead.

    I always use an OS version that is older than the last one since most of the things may not work or are not optimized well with the newest one yet.
