According to Wikipedia it's just an un-bundling of media player for the EU (Pro and Home editions)

Interesting that the Enterprise N edition doesn't have the MS Store though.

The lack of fluid player movement and the obscurification of the UI holds the ARMA franchise back and delegates it to only a niche market.

I'm not saying they need to make it like Call of Duty or Battlefield but they need to rework things like vaulting, jumping (lack there of) and climbing or mounting objects. They need to rework the UI into something so you can play the game using a more FPS friendly configuration and key-binding.

I know you can implement a lot of the command structure into voice macros using 3rd party software but I think you could still have that and have a more user friendly command ring, that's one thing - if not the only thing codemasters got right on the games they made revisiting Operation Flashpoint.

I wonder if other parameters can be altered such as the timer, total # of players, or kill count as a server host, like the good 'ol days of dedicated server gamin'. 10 Minutes is not enough for an epic battle unless its supposed to be exactly like those small modes in BF4. Like if there was a Conquest version, I would immediately switch it to 40-60 minutes, 300-500 kills, maximum players, etc.

All indications are pointing to the game using instanced servers that you'll join through matchmaking.

They've already announced that the game wont use Battlelog and the alpha test didn't have any form of server browser - in game or web based.

You'll also notice no mention of bots for off-line team deathmatch.

Just downloaded Windows 10 Enterprise "N" from my work's MSDN account.

WOW! No Crap Apps!!! Only had to disable One Drive, and go through the standard turn off in the settings / privacy area!

That's the way to go!

Does that version work in the US or is it region locked?

The only way to regain your privacy is to not use any connected device. I still object to the idea of MS making money off of selling my search data or collecting data on the programs I use.

[url=https://www.reddit.com/r/Windows10/comments/3f38ed/guide_how_to_disable_data_logging_in_w10/[/url]

may not eliminate all of their data snooping but it should go pretty far in limiting it.

Can someone actually confirm whether an upgrade from Windows 7 retains that license or not? And what happens when you change HDD's and thus have to do a clean windows 10 install???? Does that mean the license evaporates if you switch hardware?

It's supposed to deactivate the windows 7 license and turn it into a windows 10 license when you upgrade. Then, once you've upgraded your PC, it essentially becomes a windows 10 stand-alone license.

Thanks Guess I will sit on my license for the next 5 years.. no haste to upgrade..

I don't think it's deactivated, the terminology is that the windows 10 "absorbs" your current license in that whatever version of windows you're using (retail or OEM) is reflected upon when you update to 10. If you have OEM then your version of windows 10 will be OEM.

If you want to put 7 or 8 back on then it should continue to work.

Haven't bothered with Windows 10 preview but the Start menu looks like complete crap to me. I'll be installing StartIsBack++ when I decide to upgrade to 10.

I'm surprised they didn't integrate "live tiles" into the desktop background with no way of removing them.

It's not like this game would ever take advantage of anything DX12 brings to the table.

An underwater bioshock game with real fluid dynamics/physics would be cool, floating around in water trying to shoot people - not so much.

The big problem is Mod Tools don't put COOP functionality into the game, only Source Code (iirc). So what he is saying is misleading, unless I misunderstand (entirely possible ).

What he's calling "modification support" isn't what people are thinking, it's just their pre-form level creation editor where you can make maps that you and I think up to three other people can play through pseudo co-op style.

Maybe they'll have proper mod support where you can really dive into the guts of the game code but that's not what he's talking about.

On first viewing I split a gut on the candy bar scene. It's more of a time capsule movie now than a stand out comedy.

"Modification support" is just their snap together map editor thing or will they have real mod support?

Think they might be over doing it with the bloom effect, that swirling dust cloud isn't doing it any favors as well.

It's down to the variety of environments and enemies, it looks pretty generic though.

I'm looking forward to not getting this game as well but there's no need to blow a fuse over it.

Besides, it's all about Minecraft now with Microsoft given how much damn money they spent acquiring it.

Anyone know if you'll be able to do a full (free) install as opposed to an upgrade? Most of my files are already on a back-up drive, and I don't have much for programs with the exception for games; so all else being equal I'd rather do a fresh install than a back-up.

From what I've read you can do a clean install but you'll need to "update" your existing in-place OS before you can use the ISO to clean install. They want everyone to log-in to their microsoft store to get windows 10, so far I've just bypassed that procedure on windows 8.1 and don't have an "MS Store" account.

As long as you can either uninstall this xbox application or opt out some way then I'll just continue to ignore all the xbox junk.
