Microsoft should hire "User".


I'm pretty sure you're being snide, I hope so lol.

I wouldn't be at all surprised if one of the future updates to something makes a MicrosoftApp.exe (maybe they'll be blatant and make it a system .dll) go out of it's way to specifically and arbitrarily use an instruction unsupported by older CPUs causing a crash on older systems.

Then they'll basically go "See this is why we aren't supporting those old CPUs, it was for your own good.", while pretending far more advanced and intensive software that runs just fine on those "older" CPUs seemingly due to a combination of voodoo, magic and bottled dark matter, doesn't exist.

Seems "WinTel" is alive an well.

You got it backward, the NEW cpu (Intel Kaby Lake and AMD Ryzen...) are "not supported" in windows 7 to 8.1 ... Not the old ones... This patch enable user with newer CPU's to receives windows updates with the old OS.

Got access to the closed beta, I wont even install it because its multiplayer only, cant play vs AI and there is no Last Stand. Especialy the last stand part.

You do realize that D&D online is Eberon and then they added portals to Forgoten Realms right?

The only mode I enjoy other than doing the campaign once is Last Stand. No Last Stand, no buy.

You guys are looking at it all incorrectly and one like an arrogant ass. Imagine if it was all the women you knew, your mother, sister(s), girlfriend(s) and wives.

I won't lie I would have masturbated to those as well.

All I hope is they support 2560x1080 (21:9) resolution properly and not squashed. Being a Ubisoft title my hopes are already crushed..

You are wrong, I had a Nvidia 295 GTX until July where I switched to a Fury X and the new drivers for Nvidia dont support the G200 anymore in new drivers. It's a 6-7 year old card. The support in Nvidia new drivers stop at the Geforce 400 series anything before is in the old section and don't get any update anymore.

For those that didn't bother to read the article:

We delayed the game because the day one DLC wasn't ready.

The it's not an issue of 3.5 or 4 GB its an issue of memory getting slow over 3GB used and VERY VERY slow over 3.5GB used.

And I dont get the Dx12 memory adding itself in SLI/Crossfire thing, if you SLI in DX12 wouldnt you need the textures on both cards since they render de same screen? How can a card render half a scene if the brick wall texture is not on card #2?

Thats why I returned my 2 GTX 970, not because there is "missing" memory like people think but because the ram speed is gimped over 3GB of memory used and is severely gimped at 3.5GB+

Getting a Fury X instead.

Because Microsoft did such a great job on Windows 8

A pointless sentiment because just like Vista people knew Windows 8 was a disaster

There were plenty of posts pumping up how great Windows 8 was at the time - kind of like now with all the pro-Windows 10 propaganda.

I am running Windows 8.1 and it's great. I never see Metro or whatever the hell they call it now with Start Menu 8 installed.

It's running more smoothly than Windows 7 did and it boot a lot faster too.

Win 10 is free only if you're running Win 7 or above. And most recent graphics cards will run DX-12, although not all features, so you'll need a new graphics card at some point.

If you are not running Win 7 / 8.1 + at least a mid range vid card by now then you should not buy a Rift anyway.


But yeah I'm not paying for a Xbone controller, if you can't buy it without I will buy a competitor VR headset.

Couldnt they release CPU's with HBM memory (ok it would make a PC with no user upgradable memory) but most users dont need more than 8GB anyway... but the speed would be insane compared to DDR3-DDR4?

The optic inside the RIFT can be set up for your vision so you will not need your glasses while you use it.

I have seen similar claims before they released DX9 and then DX10 and the DX10.1 and then DX11...
