They haven't? I guess I just had a dream about the Vive then. And Steamboxes. And in-home streaming. And Source 2. And HL3.

Yes its great, but then again they have made no efforts to do anything else either so with a company of that size and talent is shameful.

A game from 2006 still being updated and supported, and which has a huge community even still in 2015 is something of a feat to be appreciated, I think.

Well, I was sorta looking forward to Windows 10 (still using 7, haven't touched 8 at all) but this... this seems like a step in a scary direction. Wouldn't be surprised if, ironically, it leads to more people pirating it.

I doubt that 10 will be pirated since the activation is actually stored on MS servers rather than on your machine like previous editions of Windows did.

That doesn't even matter. You just crack the part of the software that checks for that. No big deal.

Gross. I don't get how people can kiss their animals on the mouth. It's disgusting. It's even worse when people let their nasty dogs lick them all over the face and shit. EUCH! I don't even like my own spit on me, but some mangy mutt that sits around licking its asshole and eating its own shit all day? I'll pass, thanks. I hope that kid didn't come away with scurvy or tuberculosis or some shit. XD

Sounds like you don't need to be a pet owner then.


Oh, I love all my pets. I also don't let them lick my fucking face. They also don't belong on the couch or the bed unless they're a cat, because they're way cleaner. When's the last time you had to give a cat a bath because it was too stinky?

Can entire combat be modified so that it doesnt suck?

The combat could surely be improved but why does it suck?

Yeah, I don't get the vitriol surrounding the combat. I think it's fine. I feel like most people saying it sucks are just jumping on the fucking dipshit bandwagon that clueless Mack from Worth-A-Buy started.

And that big fat dummy Mac said it's not worth a buy simply because he didn't like the fun combat (and after playing for only a short time). Fuck his stupid ass. Game of the decade, easily. I can't watch his videos anymore.

Interestingly they did make a modification to combat in which he shit on.

His credibility took a nosedive in my eyes. He didn't even give the game a chance or give it time to learn how it works. He had never played a Witcher game before, so he had no idea what he was getting into. He goes in expecting something different because it's a game unlike pretty much anything else out there.

Then he plays for barely any time at all, says stupid shit like "horses shouldn't automatically follow the trail"--even though that's actually entirely realistic. A horse will actually do that in real life; until you tell it where to go, it will instinctually follow paths and roads. Or shit like "I should be able to cancel this motion instead of waiting for the animation to complete." Really, Mac? That was seconds after you said the game was arcadey, console bullshit, but then you suggest adding in more arcade shit just because you don't understand how the fuck it works? Can a real swordsman just stop mid-swing? I don't think so.

Mac's a fucking dipshit.

I wonder what the enterprise versions does here? A home user may or may not care all that much, but a lot of companies will care and I'd have to think MS knows that and then I think the enterprise version may have greatly reduced tracking. And if true, then that will be thee version to have.

Totally something to continue to watch, this will all be clear soon enough by IT professionals and published.

I'm sticking with my Enterprise version of 7 because fuck 10 square in the butthole.

The tool they mentioned from Microsoft worked well for me, seems less hassle than the manual method. I also went the clean install route, which involved upgrading first, verifying that my key had been registered as "genuine", copying down the new key, and then doing the 'clean install from a USB method'. I did notice with the delete everything upgrade choice there were still some files in my base c:\, and I suspect some of the old win 8 drivers were reused. I didn't do anymore digging to see what, if anything else, was left behind.

So far so good, only issue I'm having is firefox crashing when I open a newtab (ctrl+t). If I change the behavior to display a blank page or my home page it works. If I start firefox in safe-mode (firefox's safe-mode) it works. Having addons installed doesn't seem to effect it either way. I'll try to suss out what's going on more later today. Any insights are welcome though.

Set your homepage to http://www.google.com

Turning off hardware acceleration seemed to fix the problem; I don't know why I didn't try that first, it seems to solve a lot of problems with Firefox... I actually like the frequently visited sites tab, slightly more convenient than using bookmarks.

Good to know. Glad you fixed it. Maybe there are some drivers you need to reinstall or possibly they're buggy with W10.

Seriously? We've reverted to Win 3.1 days? Wow.

... No?

If you have anything overclocked and you have any problem... if that isn't the first thing you disable you don't know WTF you are doing. Disconnecting unnecessary USB devices during an OS install is just good practice.

This is not necessary unless you are having problems completing the install. I've done the upgrade to 7 machines so far and this wasn't necessary on any of them so far. I have had 1 machine seemingly "hang" during the last part of the installation, but 1 reboot brought it right back into the setup and it completed fine.

My point was, that's something you used to have to do many many many years ago. I've done tons of installs and system builds, and I've never had that issue since like the friggin DOS days.

And if your overclock breaks a software install, your overclock is unstable.

I've often thought that Nvidia could be deliberately manipulating their drivers in order to reduce performance in such a way that their cards still outperform AMD but don't take full advantage of the cards so that people are forced or compelled to upgrade more often. People will come back and say that the cards are tacked out at 100% usage on the GPU and VRAM so it would appear that my thoughts are invalid, but how can we be sure that it's all legit and not some kind of bloatware or something in the driver or planted in the games that Nvidia helps the devs with. It's actually a brilliant strategy from a corporate point of view if it's true.

It's really not that far fetched.

Games just get more complex. That has nothing to do with the drivers causing the card to underperform. That does not happen. My videocard is 5 years old, and still performs just as well as it did the day I bought it. It runs tons of games at maximum, 1440p well into the triple digit framerates. Obviously, newer titles won't run as smoothly on older hardware, but that's the nature of technology. This card still runs newer titles impressively well though, so I'd say there is absolutely zero merit to that paranoid delusion of a conspiracy theory. I've heard it told before too. It's simply not true.

Definitely disable any overclocking you may have in place... and disconnect all peripherals, seems to help get through the install where people have trouble.

I agree with many of you, it's an outstanding game but man if you want to finish it all I hope you have like 500+ hours...LOL
143 hours on my first playthrough and that was completing all the side quests, witcher contracts, and treasure hunts. That didn't include exploring everything though, probably another 30+ hours just for that.

i did it all in 142hours to be excat, so many of ? are a waste of time, and lots of them you cant get to until you do the quest attached to it.

Many of them can only be found by running across them accidentally. Just exploring reveals more quests that you wouldn't have otherwise known about. Inconsequential, sure, but still fun, to me.

So much content I'm in no hurry to rush through the game. I'll probably be playing it off and on all year. No problem with that. Ironically, after trying the new movement system I quickly switched back to the default.

I haven't noticed any difference. I'm still not sure how the new movement system changes anything...
