    Is there a guide, or instructions somebody could provide, to get JumpGate running in windows 10?

    I've tried the following so far.

    Launch with no compatibility. Resulted in jg pegging one core on the CPU, needed to kill it via taskmanager.

    Launch from compatibility troubleshooter, which decided in compatibility for windows 7. Opening movie played, but when I got to the first screen in game, it was mostly magenta, and completely unusable. I could see enough to recognize the "request launch" button, but that was about it.

    Closed, reported to windows that "it worked" so it would save the settings. Tried to relaunch, had to kill again via taskmanager.

    Tried xp comatibility, had to kill via taskmanager.

    Tried xp and 640x480, had to kill via taskmanager.



    I used to play on a windows 8 laptop, and I remember having to fuss with jgrotpro. I can't remember if I simply installed the mod, or if I actually needed it to get the game working. I can see that the website that mod points to is now down :(.

    Is there any hope of getting this working on windows 10?

    There is hope … JG will run on Windows 10! At least, in runs on mine (Home edition). I don't remember having any trouble installing it, so I'm afraid I can't help you. There are others around here that seem to know what they're talking about better than I. I've never managed to get jgrotpro working, but I gave up trying fairly quickly as I can manage without it.

    Hope you get it sorted.

    It runs fine for me in Win10 with no compatibility. But I also have a rather old system (core i5-3450) @3 gHz, and a generic video card.

    @clanlord Great, I'll keep my eyes peeled for such a guide. Short of something new to try, my only fallback I can think of is windows XP in virtualbox.

    The bottom line is that JG is running for many people with few issues on Win10 systems -- so your problem is probably tied to some other hardware or driver issue -- probably relating to Video card and/or drivers (which tends to cause mode JG compatibility issues). Have to tried changing your video settings at all?
