and even just 1 person on a server using a mouse against everyone else using a pad will ruin the fun for everyone.
Wait, so because everyone is dumbed down to the point where they need the game to autoaim for them, no one should get their feelings hurt when PC master race comes along with a mouse and wtfpwns them using fine control. Gotcha.

EDIT: Sorry, I should say that if you're getting a driver crash, it could be because of one of these many causes...

Forum link

Why it's common with FC3 though...
To be honest, there is one commonality in it all. Back around 276(might have been a bit earlier or later) or so, Nvidia introduced way to deal with power consumption for core voltage and TDR's jumped through the roof, even on cards that were stable. It was one of their ways to deal with the never ending problems of power consumption+heat. The problem is some cards didn't like it, not a single bit. It actually got bad enough at one point that nvidia was willing to have any rig+card shipped to them from anywhere in the US so they could test it in their labs.

One of the solutions found was locking the voltage outside of the drivers fixed it. It's been an ongoing issue, and one that I had problems with myself. Changing drivers to a previously known stable version fixed it in all cases, an that was back on my old 460 and 560. Two cards, in two different rigs, using nearly identical build components.

SLI has come a LONG long way in the past few years. I realized a 80+% gain by adding a second video card (dual sli gtx 480 here)
I remember people saying the same thing back in '98.

Generally folks, anytime there's a new driver released I pop over to the EVGA forums and check the 500/600 sections to see what the guys are saying in terms of quality. There isn't much being said right now, but some of the posts in the range of "not impressed, rushed, and POS." If that helps anyone out.

To me also, mouse and keyboard is a relic of a bye-gone era.

So, after watching that for a bit last night...was there actually a hardware mechanism that hit the side of the cabinet when you died? I've only noticed that sound on QBert standups, but it's sometimes LOUD.

There was a physical mechanism on the standups that were at the old arcade that I used to go to as a kid back in the 80's. I really do miss arcades sometimes.

Did you know that skunks can be active in the winter? I sure didn't, until today at least.

Oh boy! This is gonna be good!

Haha yeah that was my thought. It's kinda like bears, people think bears, raccoons, and weasels aren't either. Well until they're either in your garbage or chasing you down the street.

Also, bad news for cheese lovers.
They'll recover, it happens occasionally that a dairy or cheese maker gets hit by something like this. Bright Cheese House runs along the same lines as they do and recovered from a similar incident, their manufacturing house was burned down to nothing, and recovered just fine.

Oh and let me say...the snow we got, since it's still snowing here in the SWON--just shy of 10" without blowing, probably closer to 18" here in spots with the drifts. Non-official EC reports give ~8" @ 8am, so probably closer to the offical numbers but we'll see.

Start8 fixes a few things but not all. You need the 8 Gadget Pack to restore desktop gadgets, and if you dislike "ribbons" you need another utility to restore the windows 7 interface in explorer. There are a few other things but they're pretty minor. And yes people miss aero glass, not everyone likes the minimalist Windows 95 approach of 8.

So yes if you install a few mods you can get an uglier, slightly faster Windows 7. Assuming MS doesn't disable these mods with a patch again.
You mean the gadgets that keep getting disabled due to security issues? And that the majority of people don't use. Odd I've yet to use the ribbon, but that's probably because I've been using nothing but keyboard shortcuts for the last 12 years.

Classic shell doesn't fix everything.
No but start8 does. And really I can't find a difference between Win7 or Win8 with it. Unless you've got a real hardon over aero, which I hated anyway.

1. Windows 8 is garbage.
2. Classic shell and familiarity makes windows 8 suck less, but still sucks.
So, if you're using classic shell or start8. Which makes Win8 pretty much the same as Win7, are you saying that Win7 also sucks?

By "pretty sure" I mean that I haven't bothered to look at all the countries outside of the one I live in. EU is a mix of country and EU laws. If YOU want to research it for other countries feel free.

One of the ones I have heard about is germany. I've heard that in germany, it could potentially be if its agreed to before purchase. Steam asks you to agree before purchase.
Then it's always a good thing that you should probably look up the case law before opening your mouth isn't it? Otherwise you wouldn't know what you're talking about, much like you have in all of your previous posts including this one. Or how the harmonization of laws and regulations across the EU impacts this, though interpretation of said regulations and laws at a country level differ based on each countries own case laws and precedents.

So, regardless of whether or not steam "asking" you anything. A "click through" is not considered anymore valid than "shrink wrap". Another reason why steam had to setup a satellite in the EU,and another in Estonia.

Pretty sure they are. And even when specific pieces are found that aren't binding or violating the law, the EULA says the rest of it is.
If by "pretty sure they are" you mean in the US then that's about it. For everywhere else, then no. Because EULA's fall into contract law, and for contract law to apply various provisions of the said law have to be equal to both parties. If the contract is unfair to one side then the entire contract is considered void. The EU in itself is more stringent on this than Canada is.
