I switched to Win10 on the day before the last day of it being free. So I know I have not had alot of time with it. But so far it has given me no real problems.

Well I wanted to give DirectX 12 a go, only game I have that supports it is Rust. And Rust became quickly ruined, unsure why. The graphics were super bad and the water was a sickly piss yellow after I switched to DX12 mode in the Steam launcher.

My wife provided me with a program that regedits and alters some of Win10's spying and other un-needed crap. After some additional selective editing it feels alot less stupid and more normal window's like.

Rust's dx12 support is very much experimental at this point, and mostly broken, as you saw first hand. I don't expect that to change anytime soon while they focus on the core mechanics currently. It looks like they are trying to get out of early access pretty soon here with all the advancements its made lately, so DX12 may be fixed there somewhat soon.

Damn the RX480 is a real piece of junk. The article says it nuked windows to the point of requiring a system restore *and* fucked up his monitor when he tried to overclock on it. I think the power regulation in it is just poorly designed, as is demonstrated by the pci overloads that required a driver fix to nerf the card, and damage being done to devices it's hooked up to that has been reported.

<3 my modded PSP, and might just pick up a used vita now that it's been opened up. My buddy bought one and just never used it or upgraded the firmware so he could have the lowest firmware version possible when the eventual hack came out.. just in case. This works with the newest firmware though. Heh

The last Windows 10 user on my network finally gave up last week and reinstalled Windows 8.

Over a dozen computers on the network and not a single Win10 POS left. No more will they DOSS the network every time a new patch comes out. When window update couldn't connect to a server it started requesting connections as fast as it could without waiting for a response. End result: active connection overload, no one could access the internet. Good riddance Microsoft. I no longer have to config custom QOS rules to keep you from DOSSing my network.

.. or you could just flip the switch that allows locally networked computers to update eachother to "off". In the event you didn't have access to the other user's computers to flip said switch, an e-mail describing where to make the 3 or 4 clicks, so they could do it themselves, likely would have sufficed.
Or you could just use an OS that continually does not need to be "or'ed" or have 3rd party software to restore functionality. Sounds like Baristan made the right decision. The last thing any sysadmin would do is send an email to users saying, "Hey guys i need you to change some settings", yeah right.

Jesus some of you have an axe to grind here. If setting zany QOS rules to prevent something that takes 3 clicks to disable, if it's not working for your computer/network, is "making the right decision", I'll gladly keep making the "wrong" ones over here.

I don't like Windows 10 or Microsoft's BS as much as the next person, but a good deal of what I've been hearing from people about Windows 10 crosses the line between actual issues into clueless griping.

2 potential issues:

1. Everyone makes a fighting dong game.

2. People use copyrighted IP to make characters.

Thats the idea though..

This is the Tekken version of MUGEN. The whole idea behind these fighting game creators is to import copyrighted IP and have them fight eachother. This game will have every 3d fighting game character out there imported to it, as well as 3d models from other games and 2d->3d conversions.

Check out saltybet.com to see how MUGEN culminated. It really is quite the spectacle.. and this is looking to do the same thing, except with a base engine that is most like Tekken instead of traditional 2d sprite-based fighters.

That video about drawing the sword from the back is 8 retarded minutes of some guy who thinks he's doing some kind of swordfighting science with a foam blade.

It requires a special kind of sheath that is open for a particular length (depending on the size of blade/person) on the opposite side that you will be pulling it from.

I want video evidence of UWP melting steel beams before I will believe any of this. Who the fuck is Tim Sweeney anyway? Sounds like some broadway schmuck to me.

As anyone with half a brain knows, all the good games are on mobile. I don't know why everyone is up in arms about this shit. Back to Candy Crush for me.. you kids have fun. <3

Watching Surefour steamroll everyone in his path with McCree last night, I'd have to agree that he was a bit over-buffed in that last patch. Good on Blizzard for addressing these things so quickly.

Baby, I'm high erryday, don't mean I'm not wrong though.

Again, I'll ask you, when was the last software hack you seen for the PS4? Xbone? Oh right, for all intents and purposes they're un-fuck-wit-able. The irony that the most secure platforms to have a clean competitive match today is on fucking consoles. And that's a sad reality to PC gamers.

Give me the security of gaming on a console, with the hardware and peripheral freedom of PC, and you'll have a real e-sports scene. I don't know if UWP is the way to get there, like I've already said, they have all of their work still ahead of them if they want to prove this platform. But you're a fool if you think that PC gamers don't want a class of app that can't be infiltrated with script kiddies and their ESP aimbot bullshit nonsense.


Like you said, today you are both high and wrong.

The PC has *always* had more hackers/cheaters per game than any console. Also, just because nobody has hacked the actual console to circumvent it's DRM does not mean people are not cheating on those devices.

After not playing GTA V for quite some time, few friends and I were playing about a week ago and had an absolute blast playing these new stunt tracks, along with the original races. It reminded me how much fun/laughs I had playing MP in this game. I noticed they have minimized the hacker fest too.

It is worth jumping in and checking out again if you haven't played the game for a while.


Agreed.

The free content updates Rockstar has given this game are more entertaining than most entire full-retail price releases.

In over 200 races since the stunts update was released, I saw a cheater in one game. Shit's cleaned up massively.

Logitech ditched the laser sensors and is now using optical sensors in all of their gaming mice. I had a G5 and G500, which both used laser sensors. Great mice, but they both had weird diagonal tracking issues on certain surfaces. I recently bought a G502 which is optical and it's soooo much better. It has lots of buttons to use for customizing too.

Neither of those mice used laser sensors, they were actually both some of the best optical sensors at their time, and top sellers for Logitech.

Both the G5 and G500 had laser sensors, I still have both of them. I replaced the G5 with the G500 because I thought something was wrong with it, but it turned out to be the tracking problem I mentioned earlier. I used the mouse on my desk for years without a mousepad, but over the years it polished the wood so smooth that it started having problems tracking on it. I bought a mouse pad and it made it better, but moving diagonally caused it to go crazy. I bought the G500 and it had the same problem. I then found a post on the Logitech support forum, and it appeared to be a common problem with those particular laser sensors when using them on certain surfaces. I eventually found a mousepad that it liked, and I still use it. It's a Steel Series hard surface. It feels like a fin grit sand paper, but the mouse slides across it like it's on ice. I believe Logitech now makes a similar mouse surface.

was talking about the MX510/MX518 from the quote you were responding to.

Only EDF I played was Super Earth Defense Force for SNES, which I remember renting from Blockbuster and thinking was utter shit. It was a Gradius/R-Type clone with copious amounts of auto-aim.

Oh and speaking of GTAV, I've been having a tremendous amount of fun with the new Stunt Racing update. It's the best thing Rockstar has done since they released the game, by a long shot. Looking forward to creating some tracks once the editor tools are released on the 2nd. I'm up to 450 races won currently, regularly taking 1st in 16 player races. It's all about that PS4 controller =)

Don't blame the tool!

Lots of people are only comfortable with certain heroes, and they try to fit a round peg in a square hole.

Overwatch is compelling because of the diversity in hero abilities and teamwork potential. But it's a complex system, with many variables, and knowing what hero(es) to pick as a team or to compliment your teammates is difficult. Even if you select the right hero to fix the dilemma the team is confronting (stuck pushing a cart, can't stop an offense, struggling to take a point, etc), you still have to be proficient with that hero to make a positive difference.

It's not often the hero that should be blamed, it's the learning curve of rock-paper-scissors and players struggling to grasp that.

Well said. This seriously should be a PSA tooltip on the character selection/loading screen
