# 1 Comparability with Windows 8
11-18-2012, 05:07 PM
Is Cryptic/PWE going to update their System Requirements to support Windows 8 now that it's released?

I've been playing since a month a after launch 2010 and I am due for a PC upgrade/replacement next year. I am sure I am not the only one out there.

Usually the system requirements are one of the last things to get updated. That said, its working quite happily on my laptop which is running Windows 8.

Unfortuently, Anti-alising and shadows do not work well on windows 8 for STO. Thats why I switched back to windows 7.

What kind of GPU do you have? I assume you had already updated your drivers (or Windows 8 did it for you).
