Minetest On Windows 8?

by Aqua » Post

Can minetest 0.4.6 (compiled for Windows) be played on a Windows 8? If so can it be played on Windows 8 tablets or convertibles... For example Windows 8 Surface?

I don't know about tablets because some of them are using arm (=> you'll have to compile yourself, if it's possible), but I have a friend running minetest on a windows 8 laptop. Though I think windows sucks but that's only my opinion ;)
I made a few (a lot of?) mods for minetest: here is a list.
See also the MT-Faithful texture pack (work in progress).

I'm using Windows 8 as well. It runs so far.
you can put the folder everywhere which suits you. No installation needed. you've just to start the "minetest.exe" file found inside the folder "..\minetest-0.4.6\bin\".

It´s poping up an window so it has nothing to do with the windows 8 surface at all.
