    hi,

    im getting error every time i try to log with windows 8 professional, (its known issue but this so is released only 10 days ago so maybe not officialy known)

    so, the this os is aviable for download and upgrade since day 15 (ofc the offline stores (the box the dvd and some nice user guide in paper format) its in 26 october that is known and reknown but its released online so your argument is invalid at infinitum) .


    you can upgrade every windows 7 for 14 usd at this link:

    http://windowsupgradeoffer.com/

    you can download it if you are student or some random teacher of computer science university qq :

    http://e5.onthehub.com/webstore/off..._mnumain=bdba23cf-e05e-e011-971f-0030487d8897

    also you can download the free trial one 90 days from enterprise trial site:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/evalcenter/jj554510.aspx

    you can buy any pc with it since today at any online store (sony, hp, samsung, toshiba, fujistsu siemens etc etc)

    also and i wont post the link here you can download it from thepiratebay :$ arr pirates

    at the end i can show you some pictures to show that this is not fake :

    the error involving windows 8 it's about some problem with frostcollector.dll, as quoted in many threads, even in an sticky one, well, fix it, you dont need permision from ncsoft to fix it since frost is innovas, so is their tech team.

    don't close this plz :d

    hello hidrica,

    since windows 8 is still in development, we do not support that operating system yet.

    best regards,

    hi, hidrica.
    there are two separate "issues" as i know:
    1) os restriction tool in project's launcher (lineageii.exe show some message box with 'os is not supported' text). new launcher (ver 5.2.0.57 and higher) with "windows 8" included in list is on pts now (not eu, but it's not important for players).
    2) frostcollector's code bug in ldrloaddll hook (because of changes in w8 ntdll.dll). sorry, but i'm not sure about this issue status (maybe not actual info already!), but if you have some in-game crash-box with tech. details (signatures) while frost initial scanning (first 10 mins) - please send it to me, they will be fixed on monday / tuesday + qa / pts checks.

    screenshots will be useful if your error is not "1" or "2".

    thx, hidrica.
    this is a launcher case too (driver installation issue i think). new launcher (5.2.0.57) is on pointblank pts (ru) now. qa-team will perform some tests on monday, 03.
    i don't like ver.5.2.0.57 due to some reasons, so i'm sure, higher version will be released.

    so status is:
    waiting for qa feedback about 5.2.0.57 stability

    hi, hidrica!
    yes, it's w8-compatible launcher's version (should be). test is in progress now as i know (from pts pointblank qa-testers).
    p.s. i don't like ver.5.2.0.57 code, i think it's still 'bugged'.

    hidrica, can you tell me anything about compatibility-mode on launcher's (frost\lineageii.exe properties) executable (with w7 for example)?


    ----
    after n-hours of the remote dedugging on pointblank user's pc with w8:
    upd: launcher's code (ver. 5.2.0.57) was verified - it's ok. on windows8 frost driver is loading by zwloaddriver with some registry settings. loading progress & driver's control is ok too.
    but the game still crashes due to the bug in frostcollector (see my post above - it's actual info, checked by me).

    so the only thing we need right now is to remove incompatible code from frostcollector or make it safe for w8 calling features.


    ----

    upd2: frostcollector's code review & repair is in progress. next build will be available soon i think (on pts ofc)

    ----

    upd3: frostcollector 1.2.4.18 (ldrloaddll fix for w8) and launcher build 5.2.0.58 (w8 allowed) are available on l2 eu pts

    ----

    upd4: received (from qa and users) feedback - w8 compatibility ok.

    ----

    upd5: frostcollector 1.2.4.19 is available on l2 eu pts

    there is no info about it yet, sorry, schmeisser.
    i can ask qa-group on monday, 10 and share any info for this thread.

    ----

    today, 11.09.2012 'win8'-release (launcher + frostcollector) will be available on live, i think.
    upd: not included in maintenance plan, so update will be accessible later (evening i hope)

    released on live

    ----

    upd: i've found a critical bug in frostcollector 1.2.4.19. this bug makes frostocollector not compatible with certain win8 builds (for example with ntdll.dll ver. 6.2.9200.16384, timedate stamp 5010ae7a, md5 a0e0d7c52bb708a075e71c2847750b42). so some patches are planned on 12.09.2012 (on pts i think)

    there is no official announcement from staff to say that your information is correct, you are also not staff and do not have any access to pts to be sure of your information so please refrain from passing out unconfirmed information to other users on the forum and acting as if you are a member of staff.

    regards.

    1) staff hasn't answered in this post for 15 days...
    2) i do have access to pts, using tauti method: https://forum.4game.com/showthread.php?t=10811
    3) i didn't act like a member of the staff. what gave you that idea?
    4) i'm a computer engineer and i do now what i'm saying. frostcollector v1.2.4.20 fixes windows 8 compatibility (which is available on pts and qa, according to http://frostsecurity.net/frost/preload/version.txt).
    5) as a moderator you should show more respect.

    regards.
