Imma go full noob here, but I'm stuck right at the start. I downloaded the combined installer from Mirror 1 and while extracting the files I get an error message that (...)_setup-3.bin is corrupted (CRC error, with both WinRAR and 7zip). Obviously the install can't finish after this. I'm pretty sure this problem can be fixed or I messed up somewhere, but can't seem to find where. I'll try Mirror 2 too, but it's downloading very slowly.

I just really want to play  :-[.

Download from torrent. Torrents get checked for broken stuff and auto-fix it.

This dude, some of the transfer would have gone gibberty, that's why there's an MD5 checksum with the DL link. I had a simmilar issue that the torrent solved splendidly.

The great thing about the torrent is you can tell it to download, point it at your broken download and it'll fix it in a few seconds.

Uninstall all previous versions, download and install the complete version of 8.0 (ideally downloaded through the torrent). Run the launcher, start playing game.

Dear Bill, that's what I did, without the uninstall, as its a clean plate in there. Torrent is seeding btw.

I guess some details are needed: Win 10 Pro 64 Bit and the PC itself is a monster (comparatively to my former jet engine sounding machine) When I click start MWLL, it loads for some seconds and then, nothing. So..

Are you sure it's not just LL's infamous black screen period then?

No black screen at all. Nothing that suggests it would load. I can go on with other stuff after that, like I did not press it.

Torrent sorta worked. One of the files was still broken, but I chimera'd the two folders and it worked. Never used torrent before (I know, I know), so I don't know how that file repair that Sxooter mentioned works yet, maybe could have used that.

Oddly enough game requires to be "in focus" (alt+tab) to launch completely. Being tabbed to "background" makes it hang indefinitely...

Also the intro sequence can be [esc]aped for speed :^]

Other than that, try maybe some compatibility mode? Here on w7_64_sp1 "just works"?
