    PotPlayer 1.7.18346 [Update]

    The gold standard of video playback software on Windows if you ask me.
  4. Maybe due to the use of McAfee. As for Windows-7, it remains a very viable OS--most especially with the constant update screw-ups in WIndows-10. Alas, what ever happened to a simple to use, reliable OS? But Windows 10 is reliable as long as you don't have hardware it does not like. either way, people can't hang onto Windows 7 forever as even for those die hard Windows 7 types of people, they will be forced to dump it not much after Jan 2020 since any security issues that arise won't be fixed. so, obviously, it won't be wise to use Windows 7 much after Jan 2020 at the latest. so their only real options at that point are... upgrade to Windows 10 or move to Linux. NOTE: the free upgrade to Windows 10 from Windows 7 still works as I tested this myself within the last month or two.
  5. It doesn't make much sense to build a game at this early stage of development, first you make sure you have enough of the engine ready that can do what you want it to do before really focusing on the game otherwise you will end up replacing much of the game you've made. A lot of developers know this but they don't have the problem of the game being on the market for gamers to play with whereas in this case, they kind of have to do the game back to front because of the backers wanting to play the game. Early stage of development? Am I missing something? Yes game "publishers" are releasing games before they are fully ready but they always have a gameplay in there - Forever in development is not better than rushed out games. The problem is that you rarely get to see games at this stage of development, if Star Citizen was developed by a publisher in the normal sense then we would likely not of heard a thing about this game yet. Look at CDP Red with that Cyberpunk game, that game started development around the same time Star Citizen did and yet we have little to show of that game apart from what they wanted to show us. Big games take time to develop and more so big games that are trying new things out and I suspect Star Citizen is far more grander then that Cyberpunk game is. I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt and see what they can deliver, if they fail then I don't lose much but if they deliver on even half of what they promise, that could be a game changer for games and gamers that have been following the Star Citizen project will know what I mean by that. Beside, most triple a games are rushed out before they are ready and in many cases are cut down with dlc contents being added in later to inflate the price of the game. In the case of Star Citizen, they have around 500 people working on the game over 4 studios with a budget once you cut out the fluff far higher then what GTA 5 had and that budget keeps going up and the best part about it is that there is no publishers to say what they can and can't do. IMHO you have a "drank the kool-aid" attitude about this. While this game CAN be technically impressive, it is a glorified pyramid scheme entirely because it had no real gameplay that players can engage with in an ongoing way. Real games can survive a multi-year development cycle when the game is actually playable and is refining and building on that. Take Minecraft for example. It was a hit before it ever reached 1.0 and people were playing with others. As such it could absolutely afford a multi-year beta cycle. This "game" offers you the ability to buy ships. The number of people working on it doesn't matter, the impressiveness doesn't matter. The point is that we paid money now we want to see the result of that payment. They move the goalposts so often that it's a joke every time we hear the new roadmap. It won't matter. The burger you ordered 2 years ago was inadequate and we're re-engineering the feed that will allow the cow to grow to a better food source. We predict you'll be fed in 18-24 months time. Enjoy the table in the meantime, and please buy more of our trays! They'll make the burger look real nice! The point that there is no real gameplay in this tells me that they haven't figured out where the goalposts really are yet. Every other major MMO ever conceived knew this right out of the gate. Not to mention the single player game that should also be coming. It's not a "game" that deserves praising. It deserves CLOSURE.
  6. This is starting to sound as bad as the imaginary deficiencies you cited c# for, only to be proven wrong.
  7. Not everyone is that tech-savy Most people are not sadly and thats just not for Europeans but for most people around the world.
  8. Providing fake information is nothing but misleading others. Your statement not only is false but pure lie. End of Kickstarter end of Nov. 2012 with a team of 12, zero studios, zero pipelines, 6M$. This is 6 years and 4 months not 15... Starter package price is between 35 to 45$. Nothing more is required to jump in what the article describe. wow that was a joke i made about taking too long for that game "pure lie" really ? XD 35 to jump in ? you mean jump in naked ? XD did you waited 6 years and 4 month for that game ? i really happy for you you got that game at last... When I bought into the game years ago, I paid less then what I would have to pay for any triple a game on release and with that I got Star Citizen and Squadron 42, it was very little money to risk and if it paid off and they deliver on even half of what they promised, that could be a game changer for the gaming industry. At the end of the day, no one is forcing anyone to back the game and you can be modest with how much you put into it, in my case, I put a bit more then I normally would for a game but at first I only put in about £25 or £30 for what is two games and if I lose it which I've not because they've already given enough contents to play with, it's no big deal really.
  9. It's in Alpha. Like an actual alpha not a marketing one, means it's not anywhere near finished nor polished. that's the point though; it's been in "alpha" for almost a decade now (publicly available since 2013) development started back in 2011 really kind of sad that it hasn't matured more https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Citizen What is sad is pretending game development are done in 3 years while publishers did already already spend hundred M$ to built their company, hired thousands of devs and still are not able to deliver triple-A deserving much attention. CIG did started from scratch and spend all pledges on development... not 50M$ for game, 150M$ for marketing and hundred M$ in shareholder pocket. This project done and made for Backers is precisely of what Publishers will ever provide. All for less than a discounted Triple-A : 45$. In truth, most publishers wouldn't do what CIG is doing as they are more or less creating a new engine from nothing and doing a game on such a scale that even Rockstar would think twice about. In any case, the project is coming along nicely, not as quick as I would of hoped for but considering what they are trying to do, I can understand the delays. They have around 500 people working on the game over 4 studios and no publisher in the way which means that money goes a lot futher then what it would normally do and also the money seems to keep rolling in. For how long the project been going on for, they are doing really well.
  10. I'm absolutely shocked that this has become my daily driver. The single most annoying thing about the browser is having to use the word "favorites" again when every fiber of my being wants to say "bookmarks". And I could never articulate why Chrome's settings UI felt so frustrating, but Edge "fixed" it somehow. Browser settings in Edge don't get my tension up the way Chrome's does.

    Microsoft releases PWABuilder 2.0 with a new Feature Store

    Except that a lot of websites are PWAs already...
  12. once Edgium goes final they'll probably kill the old Edge "browser" in a Windows build update. EdgeHTML will still remain in the back end though for store apps to utilize from my understanding Not sure if MS calls this Edgium officially but the name has grown on me. Why does it sound like a substance you could mine from internet comments, though. it should be Microsoft's bitcoin alternative

    FlashBoot 3.2p

    FlashBoot 3.2p by Razvan Serea FlashBoot enables you to install an instance of the Windows OS onto a USB storage device, empowering you to boot any PC from that device. With FlashBoot, you'll be able to walk about with a fully-functional installation of Windows 10 or 8.1 in your pocket, ready to go under any circumstance. Need your favorite app, document, game, or browser when you're sitting in front of a strange computer? Just break out your USB device prepared with FlashBoot! FlashBoot Free can install fresh copy of Windows to USB thumbdrive, and FlashBoot Pro can create bootable clone of your existing Windows installation (including apps, settings, documents, games, browsers etc). Also FlashBoot Pro can create installable clone of Windows 7, Windows 8.x or Windows 10 which can be used to instantly copy all your apps, settings, documents, games and browsers from old computer to a new computer (even with dissimilar hardware), move operating system from HDD to SSD, move OS from/to RAID array, copy OS between virtual machine and real hardware, or switch Windows boot method between UEFI and non-UEFI. This feature can be used to gain unpartitioned disk space for dual-boot configurations by reinstalling your OEM copy of Windows in-place. Additionally, this self-extracting backup of Windows will be of good use in the case of next ransomware virus attack, failed Windows update, or accidently deleted file. Using FlashBoot, you can install Windows 7 to new laptop or new PC with no problems. (Due to lack of builting USB 3.0 support, installation of plain Windows 7 to new computer fails right on the first screen: mouse, keyboard and boot device are inaccessible to plain Windows 7.) FlashBoot can prepare Windows setup on USB thumbdrive with slipstreamed drivers, so you can quickly and easily install Windows 7 to any new computer, even Kaby Lake and Ryzen platforms. Besides of builtin USB 3.0, NVMe and RAID drivers, FlashBoot can also slipstream user-supplied drivers. And finally, FlashBoot facilitates installation of older operating systems, such as Windows XP, from USB thumdrive, and running minified version of it (known as BartPE) from USB thumbdrive. You can even use FlashBoot to build self-extracting standalone EXE files that contain exactly what you want, for rapid deployment whenever you need it. If capacity of USB thumdrive was reduced by other tools, then FlashBoot will automatically recover it to full capacity. Features available only in FlashBoot Pro ($ 29.95) Create bootable clone of Windows 10 or Windows 8.1 on USB thumbdrive, which will boot independently from main OS on HDD/SSD Create installable clone of Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1 or Windows 10 with optional driver integration (USB 3.0, NVMe, AHCI/RAID or user-supplied drivers) Prepare USB thumbdrive for installation of Windows 7, Windows 10, Windows 8/8.1 or Windows Vista to internal HDD/SSD with driver integration (USB 3.0, NVMe, AHCI/RAID or user-supplied drivers) Prepare USB thumbdrive for installation of Windows XP to internal HDD/SSD Install mini version of Windows XP (BartPE) to USB thumbdrive, which will boot independently from main OS on HDD/SSD Create self-extracting archives (USB formatters with predefined content) FlashBoot 3.2m changelog: Starting from this version, FlashBoot Pro can patch Windows 7 UEFI loader for compatibility with modern computers which have no VGA hardware. This is an optional feature, disabled by default. It is located on the driver integration page, under "OS installer -> USB" main menu item. This feature is available only for Windows 7 x64 in UEFI mode. It should be applied if Windows Setup halts when displaying OS logo. Changes in FlashBoot 3.2p: Fixed assertion failure when restoring image files whose size is not divisible by sector size.

    The Windows 10 May 2019 Update is now available on MSDN

    Instead of these obscure hardware not suppoed issues it sure would be nice if they provided some indication as to what was failing.
  19. I downloaded ISO by search SHA-1 344CA92459C23663D5F857C72A7C030F85F19BE8. Do a search in Google. Or better wait for the official release. You can calculate SHA-1 using 7zip or by installing FCIV utility. I’ll just wait for the official release date. Just to make sure I get the legit version. And I can wait for the new features a few weeks longer. It’s not that I’m missing out on something. Although some stability feats are welcome. Plus that some “register update” might take care that I can open jpg in the default Windows 10 Photos app. Legit version already avail on Insider Release Preview Ring
  20. UWP and PWA have no place or meaning in PC desktop space. Let the time confirm this.
  21. I'm assuming you mean this: https://www.neowin.net/news/go...w-york-campus-hudson-square
  22. crazy how this is 50$ less than a Galaxy S10e. that premium tax for a physical keyboard, flame red color, and 4.5" display
  23. And the ignorance from the old guy continues...
