Sucks, I really wanted to replay this classic. Seems like running it on W8 without a Virtual Machine is hopeless.

People have gotten the game to work on Win8.

Check out http://www.roguespe****[You must login to view link]
set up guide
[from profile, settings, turn off the "bad word" filter to display the url properly]

Give it a few tries with the solutions in that site. It should work with the proper setup. Just follow the instructions.

i got it to work in window mode

open registry editor (run >> regedit)

go to this path
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Red Storm Entertainment\Rogue Spear

1) you'll find a FullScreen entry, modify it from TRUE to FALSE

then go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Red Storm Entertainment\Rogue Spear
right click RogueSpear.exe >>> compatibility tap

2) in the Settings pane check "Reduced color model" and choose 16-bit
3) also check the run as administrator option

You must login into Voobly to view image


that's it, it will run after that

You must login into Voobly to view image


it tried to enable full screen to TRUE but it just keeps crashing

Brilliant! Thanks so much that 16bit on the roguespear.exe worked!! WOOO finally!

Although the game does not run in fullscreen you can select Run: Maximized on the roguespear.exe shortcut :)
