And we can prove he is wrong, he thinks Obama is being booted out, no in reality his two term limit is coming to an end. To not know that, just think how out of touch a person like that must be on a good number of things.

Well there is plenty to counter on your reply, one thing that has sort of rubbed me wrong is now there is "only works on Win 10 anniversary edition", so we are going to be splitting which version of Win 10 games run on. Ugh.

There are plenty of DX9 games still being made and it works fine for many efforts.

I don't think using Win32 like this is a good idea when it can be looked at as leaving Win32 and moving to UWP. I believe in this case what they are getting at is not supporting 32 Bit Windows. I don't believe that is the same thing.

1) there's no discussion about migrating to UWP, it's entirely moving from 32-bit to 64-bit, which is something that should have been done 10 years ago.

2) Win10 Anniversary update is just a service pack, it's will Win10. I remember seeing nVidia divide their drivers into Win10, and Win10 anniversary update. This has since been changed back to just "Win10". The whole point of Win10 is to NOT segregate their user-base. Their whole OS as a service stuff. I imagine these big updates will be coming out every year or so for the 10+ year lifetime of Win10.

Which if you think about it, constant service packs on the same OS is MUCH preferable to developers having to support 4-5 different operating systems. It's a standard, that's what the whole point of their argument is, which is absolutely sound.

I think that it's not even an argument to consider keeping 0.5% of their users who are running INCREDIBLY outdated hardware/software (32-bit windows).

This is why there's only 20 or so NPCs usually visible at the same time in any game, as opposed to thousands. It's this backwards compatibility crap that cripples development, and real innovation in games.

I think a 5 year grace period is acceptable. DX10 was released in like 2006 or 2007, that's almost a decade old, it's time to put it out to pasture, same with the rest of it. At this pace we're never going to see the kind of game I want to experience in my lifetime.

About the first part, with the Sweeny enlightenment I don't think they should throw out Win32 bundled in that manner since it actually means something else than 32 bit version of windows. Still surprised there is a 32 bit version of Win 10, but that's another story. I don't have a problem with not supporting 32 bit windows. DX doesn't really bother me either.

MS has some games that are now saying Win 10 Anniversary edition only. I haven't upgraded my units yet since these updates are large updates and seems like A. it's nearly a reinstall of the O/S behind the scenes. B. It creates its new list of bugs. But now perhaps I may have to if I want to play a certain Win10 game.

For any other developer this would be shocking but this is Digital Homicide so it's par for the course. I'm surprised they even found a Judge who would give them something more than a book thrown at them.

Yep and that is perhaps the first thing we sort of have to overcome to get past this insanity. Lawyers just go looking for a judge who will support the cause and/or accept dollars under the table to support the cause. There always seems to be one out there and probably always will unless there is some central location these all first start at. See Patent Judge in TX I believe.

Haha, guarantee like most network/internet things, crafty people will find ways around that ban.

Can hack into seemingly any US gov't agency, can't break through the porn ban wall.

This is where DRM type zealots should be coming in and saying "You see what you get! You see what you get! You should have been downloading all those videos. Because at a flip of the switch if you are streamer, your dead in the water."

This is a nice surprise. Does anyone know the timeline for the full release?

They haven't said,but using D:OS as an example, I'd guess Spring 2017.

Irrelevant. Some of us have principles, and are entirely justified in hating on ABP for their BS.

Blah blah blah, we don't live in a communistic country. If it ain't free I'm bitching, thems my principals. I like the post a couple back, a good portion of users were coming to grips stating, if the adds were intrusive and tracking etc, then ok. But you give them that, they still really don't want any ad's. But shit costs. You, me, the next guy, we don't work for free.

Unless you somehow find a way to violate the laws of physics, thermal dissipation and power consumption make that scenario from utterly impossible to highly unlikely. The only way I see this happening is if you stream with the same input lag as a PC from a server and that's only if ISPs play nice and remove data caps, I wouldn't hold my breath for that.

Someone is doubting technology. Carlin was right again.

What Snowden and Manning learned is that they're both incredibly naive. They believed in the fantasy ideal of truth, justice, and the American way. What they got for that was real America coming down on them like a ton of bricks. Real America, controlled by the elites. Who don't like to be questioned or embarrassed the way these guys embarrassed them. No, there's no forgiveness for serfs who do this. It's different for the elites, Watergate, Iran-Contra, etc. only the elites get pardons.

It's true and the only solid reason I can find myself to stand during the Anthem is the volunteer troops that risked and lost their lives. Because too much of the rest of it is bullshit of the highest order. What the country was founded on simply isn't there anymore. We've become England West. The only thing we don't have is a King/Dictator. But it seems Trump if he gets in may fight for that power.

Liking Ember so far. It's CRPG-lite for sure. Sort of Ultima meets Diablo, but well worth it for $8US. So if you're looking for something along that lines there ya go.

Looking like a steal at $8. Well written and not over-written, pleasure to read pretty much everything. Combat speed and how it plays out is very well done.

iPhones, or to be more precise, Apple products are for people who want their shit to just work. You want to tinker with it, have some control over it? Look elsewhere. Truth of the matter is that if you are the least bit tech savy, and have the inclination to tinker with your hardware and software, you can buy a better product for half the price. Gone are the days when Apple was the only game in town if you wanted a decent smartphone or a good workstation computer.

Yep. Best parts of the iphone for me, holds a good charge and charges fast.

Slow it? No. You can hit space to pause, and queue up attacks with your team members.

That slows it!! Thanks.

Ah. Thought you meant slow as in Pillars reduced combat speed.

Actually I did, but even a straight up pause works, otherwise it becomes very ARPG'ish for me and would have to judge it against those.
