Downgrade to Windows 8.1, or switch to Linux/Mac OS. Or just emulate it in VirtualBox, or something. Downgrade to 8.1?

Hi people, so as it stands right now (based on all the information I've collected from testers, since I can't reproduce the issues on any of my machines -- might be outdated drivers but I'll try it soon), the issue can be solved in one the following ways, other than enabling windowed mode:
  • Enable vsync in-game, but force-disable it in nvidia (roping etc. may feel different)
  • Enable Windows 8 or 7 compatibility in the WA.exe properties.
Not sure about quirks other than black screen.
Also would be nice if someone affected by the issue could try launching the game on the Fall Creators Update (the latest) with the latest Nvidia drivers. Thanks!
Dec 30 2013 23:59:44 <StepS> windowed mode isn't the only thing you need about frontend
Dec 30 2013 23:59:49 <StepS> you need it to be actually bigger
Dec 31 2013 00:00:13 <StepS> it actually is very small on my 15-inch full HD screen
Dec 31 2013 00:00:25 <StepS> while running at 640x480 or stretched mode makes it fuzzy
Dec 31 2013 00:00:44 <StepS> this problem has been around since the Worms Armageddon's release and no one has even tried to beat it

I would suggest to either downgrade to Windows 7, run the game in VM Windows 7, or use the compatiblity with Windows 7 (like StepS said).
Don't nickname me, or you won't like, what happens next!

According to an early report, the Fall Creators Update (1709) fixes this problem.
Edit: got a second report that confirms the above.

Bollocks.
1709 DIDN'T fix shit!

I can't minimize the game. If I do, there will be some weird empty geometric bodies on my screen while playing. Or even worse - whole white screen that will require ctrl+alt+del to get rid off.
Also, even tho I always played with vsyncs off, since 1709 - game slowed down and feels like all vsyncs are turned on. 
My internet connection randomly shut downs few times per day.
Also usb wireless signal got lower since microsoft MADE ME update.

I'm going back on 1607, if I manage to do it.
If not - i'm done with win10 forever probably.

DON'T UPDATE!

I know at least one dude who plays in fullscreen without vsync has recommended enabling "Disable fullscreen optimizations" on the Update, and the game started feeling like before, without issues. Also I recommend doing this so that performance does not get negatively affected by the new security mitigations.

I guess you got really unfortunate with your drivers. I would probably wait at least 6 months before trying to update again, so both MS and driver vendors can clean up the mess.
