    Hey guys,

    There's a workaround right now to run metro apps in lower resolutions by the "Downscaling support" trick from registry.

    However I found out that resolution check can be bypassed by editing a file in Windows 8. This works on Windows 8.1 too!

    So I am looking for someone who's good in decoding coz I cannot do the work. :)

    If you are interested, please reply here and leave your mail IDs. :)
    I will also keep this thread updated with latest news.

    Thanks!

    you are serious? Tell us about the downscaling process and announce something new but cannot do it :eek:
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    Why would you run metro apps on a PC? Just get a smartphone and keep using decent programs on your rig.

    I'm epic serios 'bout this. Microsoft optimized Windows 8 for lower devices too but cannot add full functionality?

    Here's the rule for metro apps= If metro apps are launched via metro (or metro apps), resolution check isn't made.

    Yes I even have the proof that they work! They don't even crash man! :D

    I already have a Nexus bro. But still, many members want a workaround/hack. So let's make some news if possible. ;)
