    Such frame rates indicate that the video driver you are using does not support
    OpenGL acceleration. The same thing was the case with early Vista and Windows
    7 drivers. It seems that the video card vendors spend some time to try to get
    acceleration working with directX, but leave OpenGL for later.

    What you can do is:

    1. Install the latest driver for you video card from the video card manufacturers site.

    2. If it still doesn't work, complain - their perception is that OpenGL isn't important because less games use it than used to. Tell them you are not happy, and maybe they will increase the priority of supporting OpenGL.

    Hey

    Thanks for your replay. Nvidia has already published a driver for Windows 8,
    and it worked now there are 40fps.

    ATI 4570 / Windows 8 / C2D 2.4 GHZ / 4GB RAM
    Same here.....0.5 FPS although benchmark with Unigene Heaven renders 12 FPS using OpenGL

    Here is the benchmark details:

    Unigine Heaven Benchmark 4.0

    FPS: 12.4
    Score: 312
    Min FPS: 6.1
    Max FPS: 20.0

    [System]
    Platform: Windows NT 6.2 (build 9200) 32bit
    CPU model: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU P8600 @ 2.40GHz (1826MHz) x2
    GPU model: Microsoft Basic Render Driver 8.970.100.3000/ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4500/5100 Series ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4500/5100 Series (512MB) x1

    [Settings]

    Render: OpenGL
    Mode: 1366x768 fullscreen
    Preset Custom
    Quality Low
    Tessellation: Disabled

    I do believe that graphic requirements are comparably fairly low than that of Unigene's Benchmark at Low quality.

    Same nonsense with latest email announcing version 0.12.1....triangles surrounding stars, etc. I have the latest drivers installed so that excuse doesn't work. Fix the real problem whatever it is.
