What's this, a FREE chance to add Spyware and Malware in the guise of denuvo and punkbuster?! Count me in, please hurt me for FREE! Just the word FREE, makes me hurt. Flamethrower Mwahaha

I have Uplay installed and never experience issues with either.
Install Far Cry 3 (punkbuster) installed without notification or consent. It can keep you from playing your game and stays on your system even after FC3 is uninstalled. At least that's the way it did work. It required a special program downloaded from punkbuster to remove it. If you don't believe, you could always google it.

It's hard to believe I need to list all the ubi games that install denuvo. So I have no idea what's up with your position on it. Confused

I'm don't doubt that's what PB does. I'm merely saying my experience with DRM apps remains problem-free. I know people like to jump on the anti-DRM train, but all the negative things they claim Denovo and PB do I've not seen or observed. If either were causing shenanigans, I'd remove them post-haste.
I understand but have no idea how that's even possible. Every creditable testing group, agrees denuvo effects performance and it's damn obvious it effects Loading Times (even an article today 7/9/20 on Blues). It's also well documented about punkbuster, meaning if you have installed something like FC3 it's probably still on your system. Personally I constantly monitor my system installs with malware scans with things like CCleaner and Malwarebytes. But I realize there are millions of people out there who have no idea what's installed on their systems, any more than they do on their phones.

The point being, if your doing these things and think nothings wrong, make sure your checking your systems when peeps are sounds red alerts about systems like ubi. They are well documented for being in the middle of every drm disaster since 2000, whether it's securerom or starforce. Hell, ubi would install a rootkit on your system to control what you can play and what you can't play, if they could get away with it, full stop. Salute

One of the VCs overseeing this actually reached out to me a month ago asking me if I wanted to buy in.

It was odd. I've never had anyone do that before. Part of me was thinking of course. Another part of me was thinking I don't have that kind of cash (he didn't mention the minimum, but I'd guess high), and 17B seems like Epic towards a peak

It's ridiculous that there's people actually upset that KF2 is on EGS now, even though it supports crossplay between both storefronts meaning the playerbase isn't going to be split or anything.
Is that even a real thing, who is saying anything about giving a shit about what's on a pathetic store like epic?

What's the best example of this happening so we can learn about it?

We know for a fact, these are real people, real allegations, real investigations and punishments. It's not even clear if law enforcement has gotten involved at this point.
The best I can tell, no one in this forum thread knows the predator, nor the victims. Yet some are convinced the mere existence of a process to prevent abuse is unfair to the abuser?

Do I read you guys correctly?

It's odd, that you post as if this guy was fired for posting/tweeting. It clearly says there was an investigation and is still on going.
So, either you didn't read this and posted anyway, or your using this story as a way to malign any attempt to stop legitimate abuse.

I'm new to these surveys and don't know anyone who participates. Is there anyway to see how many people are in the survey? Steam has about 100 million users, but I'm guessing this isnt anywhere near a good average. Most recent info I've seen was win10 had reached about 50% saturation, but mainly due to ipads and notebooks. Neither of which will be able to run Cyberpunk 2077, afaik. Then again, I rarely pay attention to anything win10 related, so I'm sure to be behind the times.

Statistics work in such a way that a representative sample can be within a few percentage points of a distribution, regardless of size. So a few hundred users can tell us the DX distribution for all 100M users, + or - 2%.
They used to have info like that, not sure they do anymore, but as jdreyer says, it's not needed (assuming it's a truly random sampling). It is fresh info too, they do at least fresh surveys yearly. Nowdays it's opt in and they only get your info if you allow them.

I believe when you speak of ipads you are speaking of global PC market. This is the global pc GAMING market. So it's different. Mac OS is only 3.5% of steam customers. Linux is under 1%. Also windows 10 penetration among PC gamers is up to 87%, quite a different situation among gamers than among tablets/laptops/PCs together. All the statistics I mentioned in the previous post were already including Mac and Linux.
I don't really see it as a representative or random, since most people don't participate, afaik. I was hoping to see the data and don't mind being corrected by it. But yeah, I don't pay attention any more. If it's true there's 87% win10 usage in PC, I'm completely shocked.

Incorrect
https://store.steampowered.com/hwsurvey/Steam-Hardware-Software-Survey-Welcome-to-Steam
It's only about 10% of average PC gamers who could have played this by supporting DX11 (the other 6% are still running EOL windows 7 and are capable of directx 12 because of MS's weird decision to port that near EOL). And another 2% of that total have the GPU but are running windows 8 and could support DX12 with just a FREE software update, because yes, you can still get windows 10 free if you have 8.

Being able to skip extensive development, Q&A, and testing on DX11 and windows 8, probably saves them a lot of time and money. And for the less than 5% of average gamers who don't have DX12 capable hardware, I'm ok with that. Keep in mind that even Fermi has support for DX12, and nvidia 400 Fermi series goes back over 10 years. If someone hasn't updated their graphics card in over 10 years, maybe it's time to ask for that for this cutting edge game

To give a console analogy, if this game were supporting PS5 and PS4 on release, this request is like asking for PS3 support, while claiming it's half of the market.

On the GTX 1070Ti DX12 works but feels unstable. My gut feeling always has me select DX11 over 12 based on past experiences.

No wall-running, DX12 only, no playable female protagonist... What other strange news will we get right before the finish line?
Wtf, is this about removing the female protagonist, got a link? Damn, if true it really pisses me off. I can't imagine CD Projekt Red would try to charge extra for a female protagonist but I would rather pay extra than not have the option.

Edit: NM, I see the rest of the thread on Female Protagonist.

You might be able to get away with throwing more hardware power, but it would be best to run DX12 on Win10. Microsoft has made several improvements to both so that they complement each other.
I'm generally opposed to win10. I was already used to doing custom installs with NTLite but it seems like win10 is absurdly overbloated.
