How to fix Darkest Hour for Windows 8!

  • Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.

The Wine .dll files work very well indeed. But not with integrated Intel graphics.

I'm getting problems from Windows 10 also (Win 7 worked perfectly), when first started resolution seems to be messed up and doesn't load properly plus game somehow ends up in lower right corner with part of the interface being unavailable:
View attachment 136624

Doing regedit method (other made things even worse) solves resolution problems and game is back to 1920x1080 and in upper left corner BUT parts of the screens at bottom and right are missing and showing desktop instead also it is impossible to scroll down (and again part of UI is unavailable).

But at lest in game screenshot with F11 works fine. :D

Attempting to use windowed results in a crash:


I did manage to make game run windowed in low resolution but that is hardly playable. :(
I had the same issue with DH 1.3 in Windows 10 after the registry fix. I've solved this problem by right clicking on Darkest Hour.exe, then under Properties choose "Disable DPI Scaling". I did the same with the Launcher, just to be sure. Then i start the game via the Launcher as Administrator and it runs. However, it's still pretty laggy.

Thanks that worked! Let see how bad is the lag.

Do any of these "fixes" from the first post, perhaps fix the very small text I am getting from my Windows 8.1? The resolution on my computer is so high, I find it hard to read and see all the details on the screen while playing DH. Any fixes for that? Playing with the resolution in the launcher doesn't do much, except exacerbate the situation; but the resolution I'm on is: 1920x1080.

I strongly recommend setting up a Linux dual-boot and running DH with Wine. It works even better than with Windows 7... :confused:

I found a way with WineD3D for AMD users.
This is the latest version and it seemed to have worked with my AMD graphics card. Just place them in the Darkest Hour folder. No need to chance the color or anything else. It should boot up after a few seconds and it seems to be working just like the original
EDIT: you can launch it from the launcher as well.
Problems so far:
-Mouse lag ONLY IN MENU but it works fine in-game
-Text in diplomacy tab is shaking
-The mouse lag returns when using the economy tab (I haven't seen it on any other tab) but once you exit the tab it goes back to normal
Here's the link to the website:http://adolfintel.com/index.php?p=wined3d/index.frag
I used the "staging version"

Just wanted to report that I bought a new laptop with Windows 10 pre-installed and there's no lag at all. It's as smooth as it was with Windows 7.

I used Baron Von Cucu's method and worked halfway, as opposed to being stuck on a white loading screen and then crashes, it now means I can actually load to the main menu, but then it crashes or just stays in a black screen after trying to load up the game

I find it disgraceful that Paradox doesn't feel the need to fix this issue. Yes, the game is many years old, but they still sell it to people, so it should be a working product.

Nooo, you must wait a little bit. I know it sounds ridiculous but you must wait and then it works.

EDIT: Roughly ~15 seconds then it should work.

EDIT 2: With this package http://www.mediafire.com/download/wloe1fjsbboojko/WineD3D+1.5.22.7z (also copy and paste it into the Darkest Hour library, just delete the dxgi.dll) you can fully enjoy the game and also alt-tab out of the game ;)

Cool. It works also on Win10.

Set up a Linux dual-boot and use Wine.
