Dropping support for Windows 8 and 8.1

Windows 8 and 8.1 is no longer officially supported (all games)

Historically, most technical problems reported were related to Win 8/8.1. By this I mean like more than 50% reports total among all games, ever reported. I would say, it’s the most troublesome system ever released. In addition a very minuscule number of people use it nowadays, and even those who do, seem to have a second OS on another machine anyway. Which also means, I have harder and harder time to find testers to test it on that machine. The last thing is, I use various third party software for the engine and, well, let’s say that the maintainers of this software do not treat Win 8/8.1 support as a priority. All this combined lead me to decide it’s time to stop supporting this OS.

Note that Windows XP is still supported (at least for now).

Currently supported:
Windows 11, Windows 10, Windows 7, Windows XP.
Linux (flawless emulation on Linux via any compatibility layer, especially Proton, regularly tested).
Mac (unconfirmed, but I got reports it runs without problems on M1 Mac via emulation).
