Since the current stable version of Löve was released before Windows 8, you'll have to try a snapshot. You can find the latest windows snapshot here:

For you, ... efault.exe is likely to work the best. You'll need the Source package of Mari0.

I have the same problem, i trying to change a lot of options in the OS (regedit, msconfig, etc)

I think, love (and the games) get slow by the new start (Retro).

I have the same problem with huge CPU usage, however, I'm using Ubuntu Linux 12.04 x64.

It usually starts out just fine, and then after a couple minutes, CPU usage spikes and the game becomes unplayable.

I get fix this problem.

You only need to update your video drivers (For me, i update the AMD drivers), and run perfectly.
