How is it "quite worrying?" What impact does it have on you? Microsoft is already backtracking on some of the big changes, and anything it runs your version of Windows also runs.

The increasing paranoia amongst some posters is quite worrying. "People like something I don't, the world is ending!"

Not it doesn't actually run everything Windows 7 runs.. some old games do no longer work


I meant the other way around. You can fear the adoption of something new if it will obsolete what you have, but that isn't the case. There are no games coming out that are compatible with Win8 but not Win7. So I don't get the fearing post from that guy.

Ah.. yeah I don't get the Microsoft bashing either. It's a choice what OS you use. And Microsoft is obviously not happy XP was such a MAJOR success. To me, Windows 8 is just a "skip" , nothing more. We'll see what Windows 9 does... (I have a lot of pet-peeves with Windows 7 too.. ,P)

Yes and I can't fathom why they'd do that considering the entire reason for Windows' success is that it can run all the legacy software, except that Vista/7/8 each introduced too many compatibility problems and didn't focus on running legacy software as well as they could have. Amiright?


Well it's not a huge issue except when you don't know it is an issue. Windows 7 runs mostly everything... I am just more conscious about this. I want to run my old games. And so far I got everything working in Windows 7. It seems like the best "mid-point" to be when you want to run XP games. As no game is gonna be Windows 8 or Windows 9 exclusive anytime soon

In the end, if you only play latest stuff, it doesn't matter. But if you have older games around you still enjoy.. it might matter.

If you run DSM 5 it's fine ,)

That said, like anyone else, I don't have my backup on my NAS and nobody can access my backups from the network.

Btw, I love how Europe ass-rapes every car that's basically not electric with environmental taxes etc, but at the same time, cops letting their fucking cars run all day is perfectly fine.

Government hypocrisy in action. Someone please just bulldoze Brussel.

The only one deciding what national police drives and does is the national police.... and aside that, UK is not part of Europe... in anything but vaguest terms

Yeah, all the whining about Origin/Steam is pretty old at this point, but expected. Some of those people will get over it eventually, others won't. Whatever.

I'm curious how WC3 runs on modern systems. I haven't tried it since its original release. Back then I wasn't a big fan. WC2 was (and still is) my all-time favorite game, yet WC3 wasn't nearly as good. The plot, characters, artwork, mission design ... none of it was as good as WC2 as I recall. But I'm curious to take another look. It has been ... 20 years. Ack.

Origin version runs via DosBox.. but ehm.. does anyone know where I can find the key config for this?

TotalBiscuit pretty much gives you all you need to know in his video.

It's like an even shittier version of a shitty ARPG.

Except Sacred 2 was awesome

Whatever this new game is, it ain't Sacred.

I don't get the anger... It's free, I don't care where. As long as it's truly free..

When was the last time Steam gave you a free game? And EA even held their promise to make Sim City 5 work offline... to me, Steam is far more evil with all their bullshit.

1 example. Banned TAGS, you never wondered why tags never include listings like "No DRM" or "Console port" ? That's because VALVE BANS THESE TAGS. Any tag that does not improve sales is BANNED. And people prefer that bullshit over Origin?

Hah!

Worldship? Craftworld! Good day sir.


That's what translated books do to you.. Craftworld, of course! I wonder why the owners of this IP are so massively inept at managing it though. Wh40k could be a major franchise, but.. it's really not. Baffling

a computer that takes 7 minutes to boot up must to ancient, maybe they need to upgrade them.

Not even an 8086 takes 7 minutes to boot up, from floppy yet.

I've had plenty of work laptops that take that long to reboot. New machines, but with all the security it takes them forever.
Hell, reawakening my current laptop from hibernation will take forever before it's usable. I should time it sometime. It's over five minutes before I can actually get into the browser. An actual reboot is usually faster, I think, since it isn't pushing 7 gigs of data back into the RAM, but not by much.

.. from Hibernation to browser... less than 3 seconds here... what.. how.. is 5 minutes even possible? Even my Ancient 486-DX2 66 booted way faster than 5 minutes. On a 20mb HDD held together by duct-tape. Heck my screen takes longer to "boot" than my PC

Mhh, thinking about it, what your laptop is likely doing is dumping RAM to disc and then shutting off, what you think is Hibernation is actually lowest level energy state possible, in which ram is not powered. On turning on, it loads the entire ram-file back into the ram, a process that can take VERY long indeed.

If so, shutting it OFF (properly) may be a lot faster....

I don't hear explosions after playing, but many times I'll have restless nights where I continue playing a game while sleeping in dreams and wake up exhausted.

I get those too, and hate them. Generally a sign I have to put that title aside for a few days.

Not frequent, but it sucks when they happen...like my brain can't shut off.


All I can say to that is that I am lucky apparently... because I am playing some games as much as anyone else (heck, I think I played ME3 in 1 sitting!) and D:OS in 3... but for shutting your brain down I would STRONGLY advise reading up on how to do this properly, there are routines you can develop that basically will always guide your dreams into proper paths. Ever since I follow my own routine I am not waking up exhausted anymore.

Can't really tell you what to do.. because everyone is different. But for me I have a story I continue every night in my head which I expand every night until I am asleep Works 9 out of 10 times. I think that's when people meant when they said "count sheep" it has nothing to do with sheep. It's a ritual, a routine you need to find that calms your brain and nerves and everything.

That, and a time buffer.. for me it's 30 minutes that I absolutely have to maintain. If i can't keep it because I am already in bed.. then I just read something on the web or watch youtube vids on my tablet...

Before I came up with this ritual I had the same issues.

That's a common phenomena and directly attributable to the school system and a societies values... in the end you want people not to do what your cousins do, you have to offer them a future that consists of more than just working and family. Let's face it, life is not there to be working 40 years of it and then when you are old and fucked up trying to enjoy life with your broken down and sick or just plain OLD body.
Well, that's what PC games are for.

This entire society actually makes me sick. But it seems we are on a good way to a 3rd world war anyway.
Well, I'd hardly say that. The number of wars, and deaths during such wars have been in steady decline in the past 100 years. I used to live across the river from the largest sub base and sub factory in the world. Submarines, being the most difficult to track and destroy part of the nuclear triad meant that said sub base was target number one, even moreso than Washington DC. Certainly the Soviets had dozens of nukes pointed at this single city, a mere 3 miles as the crow flew from my house. How many days did I awake to the sun streaming threw my window into my face dreaming that the USSR had just nuked the base and I was ten seconds from incineration? Dozens and dozens and dozens. Even with Putin's regional aggression, I feel much safer today. I don't live near that sub base any longer, but I do now live only a few miles from US Pacific Command, a Naval base full of top of the line US Naval vessels. Certainly Russia still has nukes pointed here, but I feel much safer than I did 20 or 30 years ago.

Well, for me Poland is a direct neighbor, and when we have 8 NATO training deployments scheduled in a month that previously had 1 ! and evidence that Russia is moving heavy tank, AA and artillery brigades to the borders to invade the East Ukraine things look slightly more worrisome. What you call regional aggression is directly bordering the EU. And Putin is the type who'd invade the Ukraine with 0 flinching... if he actually did that we'd have a cold war deluxe. Nato would be forced to employ it's entire strength* to the EU borders with Russia because the close countries would be screaming bloody murder for protection.

*And since NATO was close to being dismantled, this means EU as a whole is gonna have to re-arm itself... that's not a way to peace....

Because it's the job of a society to protect the weakest... what kind of argument is "then don't use it" .. that can only come from someone with ZERO understanding of children. If that kinda logic would work on them the world would be a better place indeed....

Given that logic, we should outright ban all forms and places of communication because they have the potential to be used by a small group of people to harass other people.

Which is in fact something I'd advocate, but only for children.

Surely I mentioned before that I hate children? But more than children I hate mobbing. And children that mob other children should imo be punished heavily. Guantanamo etc.
