Windows 8.1 Compatible issues

I’m running on the latest version on Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit. (PC Specs:

Now every time I start the game it minimizes and when I click on it, it opens and minimizes again. I’ve had this issue with many games, even Unreal Tournament. The only way I can fix it is by adding: -FULLSCREEN to the launch options when I start the game.

My cousin which had Windows 7 has no problem with it. Opens the game and plays it.

Windows 8.1 is terrible at being compatible with games but If there is a fix so I don’t have to use -FULLSCREEN, please tell me.

-FULLSCREEN allows you to play in fullscreen (windowed) mode, which lags more.

I’m on Windows 8.1 pro and have no problems.

The same as above. No problems in W8.1P

No problems here, sorry man.

I swear it’s gotta be my GPU then. It flickers black for 10 seconds every so often too. ;-; Thx, for the replies.

i’m in win 8.1 pro, no problems either.
