Looking to get a Windows 7 game 'fixed' to work on windows 10. On everything up to and including win 7 - all works perfect. Win 10 causes terrible lagging and some graphic issues.
It's not a graphic intensive game and was originally written back in 2005/6. Happy to discuss further with a selected freelancer in game coding. Please note, i'm not looking for a play tester - I need a coder that can pick apart the game and fix it.
Just a bit further detail to help bidders:
I'm not sure what the language is. Looking at the files contained in the game, it shows me that it's made up of .dat and .gxl files with a main .exe file.
An exact recounter of the problem is: on machines above Win 7, the game has significant lag. For example, on the game main menu screen, the mouse has a (approx.) 1 second delay before it moves. This mouse delay happens throughout the game.
Also, the game starts with a simple static screenshot type movie - nothing animated apart from some fades between screens. These screens take forever to go through and the animated fades I mentioned virtually bring the game to a stop!
If you manage to last until the actual game starts, then it is incredibly sluggish. If you quit the game back to the main menu, the graphics go like a 'mixed up monochrome' colour in places. The actual graphics don't corrupt, just the colours.
On one of the test machines, we've tried it on win vista/7 and it's perfect, but on a win 10 boot the problems mentioned above happen.
There must be something in Win 10 that messes things up. Also, it won't run under a compatibility mode in win 10 either. If we set it to XP, vista or win 7 on a win 10 boot, the game still encounters the same problems.
Hope that all makes sense.
