Borderlands 2’s compatible issues

This fantastic game is not compatible with Windows 8, and the consequence is that the game cannot start and it just crashes at game startup. If you are running Win8 like me and want to enjoy the game, just follow this guide:

In short:

  • Set “Compatible mode” to “Windows 98/Windows Me” in the property dialog of the game shortcut.
  • If you are running a multi-core processor, then while the game is starting, open Task Manager, go to Details tab and set affinity of the game instance to “All processors“.
  • Enjoy your game time!!!

Update 01/2013:
