News Comments > More Win10 Concerns from Tim Sweeney
162. Re: More Win10 Concerns from Tim Sweeney Jul 27, 2016, 11:18 Armengar
 
So break Win32 and lock just about every large scale deployment out? We already run LTSB as a windows 10 deployment - no store, no cortana, no edge and updates via WSUS. I have ZERO intention of using client branch.

If I have to look at using the store as the only way to deploy 300 machines then I will move to Linux. Pure and simple. I will look at the bespoke software (like Sibelius, autocad, anquet maps etc) and see if there is a Linux or online alternative.

Like i said, peak time you might get lucky. I was a very long time 187 server mod for ns1 and an ns2 preorder. I found the community to be more and more toxic, if you werent into the meta then the community were just plain nasty - god help you if you liked combat mod! That is when i threw in the towel. Devs destroyed the game base by not having a mod api or any sort of modding help- each patch killed the mods so over time people left.

It shouldn't have been a surprise that people wanted mods for ns2 based on what you could see on ns1. It was almost as if the devs wanted their vision of ns2 or the highway (a few posts got deleted for saying such things, even in beta stage...) a real pity.

Edit: 357 are playing at the time of edit. With a ping limit of 100 i see 2 full servers and 1 partial (europe) so i guess most of the others are in US. For comparison, 230 are playing alien swarm - remember that free game?

so a Californian court is going to rule on something run from Germany and expect the germans to comply?

Good luck with that.

Game is dead. A shame. They should have suppprted modding with a framework but with each patch needing lots of blind mod changes most of the kodders have left alomg with the players.

I play tf2 with my kids. I have fired up HL mods such as TFC to show them older school gaming. They have played faster paced Q3 but ive never showed them such speedfreaks as Q2 rocket arena or doom.

News Comments > Valve Loses AU Legal Dispute
27. Re: Valve Loses AU Legal Dispute Mar 30, 2016, 05:05 Armengar
 
quite easy for valve to implement. If the game has been played for more than 1 hour then the onus would be on the consumer to prove that it is faulty etc. If it has been played for less than 1 hour then the refund stands. Not exactly hard and can be automated (pretty much).

It will be problematic for games that form portions of a bundle (and games within the bundle have been played extensively)

Im not sure about the adults thing. We aren't all shite Im 46 now and can play TF2 pretty decently. I play WoT (WN8 av of 1625) and have gamed for many years.

The kids get annoyed when I beat them at least.

I suppose panel quality also makes a difference. My old XPS15 is 1366x768 but looks absolutely fine. Plus, being a lower res (native) means that its integrated 540m can still play games in a reasonable fashion partly due to a low res.

I'd rather have a better panel than just more pixels (on an inferior panel).

The farms in my neck of the woods are in massive greenhouses that work 24/7. In the winter there are floodlights for the workers.

IMHO rome 2 suffered from the same problem that civ5 did (for me at least), it simply wasn't as good as the previous. Rome 1 was an epic game and got lots of things right. It didn't need a massive improvement, simply an evolution of "drop the click fests". Empire total was was good but the ranged combat was marmite to most.

Shogun 2 pissed me off simply due to the artificial limiters put on you for expansion (to make up for the shoddy AI) mods did fix a lot of this though.


I'll not bother with warcraft as I have no interest in the warcraft universe.

FBI talk to apple, apple help out. FBI want phone unlocking, apple say "get a court order". FBI get a court order, apple hissy fit. FBI leans on DoJ who join in.

Like it or not, FBI went the correct route. Blame the laws not the outcome.

fairly annoying article. whilst 500 is over the top it isn't unexpected. 22 for the raw batteries yes, but what about warranty on those batteries? What about support on your almost 10k digital recorder? These things often have support over and above the 2 year initial. You aren't just paying for the raw component inside you are paying for more - you do (afterall) get more than the battery for 500. If you want to look at eye gouging prices then look at how much SSDs cost for certified use in your SAN (when you can buy identical drives off the shelf with a simple firmware name change that is enough to stop them working at 1/10 the price!)

Plus you could also say an iphone has a $10 battery inside and I wonder how much apple will charge to replace that for you? Same said for a Samsung s6 etc.
