OpenBve Sdl windows 8
« on: July 29, 2013, 11:21:03 am »
 I recently bought a new windows 8 laptop and I downloaded OpenBve on it and after I pick the train and route and press start the program says "sdl failed to initialize the video subsystem" does anybody know how to fix this?

 I went to openbve.org and I tried to download openAL but the web page says "
Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" is that site to download openAL down? because I want to the other openbve installer site and it stills says that the internet explore can not display webpage. Does anyone know the problem?

The links on openbve.org are outdated. I will launch a new openbve site featuring the latest downloads and if I work on the source code, I'll put my releases there. For now, go to: http://odakyufan.zxq.net/openbve/ and install the files. To my understanding, you need everything on Windows 8 EXCEPT .net framework, as it is already included in Win8.

Try:

It looks like the connect.creative.com host no longer exists.
