Character tools on windows 10
« on: August 30, 2019, 08:00:53 PM »
Has anyone had any issues running the game or character tools on windows 10 and if so what and is it resolvable, also can you install and use the character tools without the game being installed

The main problem I have is that WX has some programs it runs memory resident that do not show up in Task Manager or anything. So, no matter what it says about available memory they lie. I've heard that it ranges for a few megabytes to a gig or more, so it's probably a lot, but not a gig. I haven't been able to run either game for awhile because, even showing something like 4 gig free, there is not enough RAM.In addition, my WX no longer supports my graphics card (although it did for over a year), and I am running on drivers that were probably fine for my 80386.

We won't discuss what it does to Photoshop.

I actually have  :ffvstr: installed on a flash drive in addition to my laptop. I only did that so I can play with NifSkope on computers that donít have anything I need installed on them, such as the ones at the college.

My laptop is a Windows 8.1, and my Desktop is a Windows 10. I used the original Disk to install  :ffvstr: on both machines, neither of which are actual "Gaming" PC's, but I've been able to get all the tools and Mods to work so far.

As far as this comment goes, I had previously uninstalled  :ffvstr: from both machines a while back, but when I decided to re-install them, I installed everything to a flash drive first: the game, mod tools, NifSkope, etc.
