So is there any gaming reason NOT to upgrade to Windows 10?
>>
some hardware doesnt have win10 drivers so just do your research before you do it
>>
>>323344042
Current Windows 10 here

It's not horrible, but I like 7 better
>>
Any porn games that require applocale or similar processes are a pain in the ass to get working properly
>>
If you've made an conscious to decision to not upgrade it means you're an inbred memer, no exceptions.
>>
OP here.
Better question:
Are there any reasons I SHOULD upgrade to Windows 10?
>>
>>323344627
No
>>
>>323344342
https://github.com/xupefei/Locale-Emulator
This is what I use, works fine for Illusion games at least
>>
>>323344769
Nice, thanks anon. I've been using ntleas but all its documentation is in Japanese and there's next to no support for it. How does yours handle stuff like AA2 with all the subtitles and menus?
>>
>>323344627
Not right now, it will become relevant only when DX12 games become reality.
>>
>>323344690
I thought there was some version of Direct X that required Version 10.
>>
Seems like a good a thread as any.
I'm a console babby building my first PC. PC is exclusively for gaming as I have a fairly decent laptop for everything else one might need a computer.
Which OS should I go with and is there any big risks to pirating Windows? I do plan to play online and mod the shit out of games and run games from steam and non steam games.

I was thinking 8.1 because of how easy it is to pirate a copy that thinks it's legit but I'm sure someones going to tell me how stupid that is.

>inb4 pay for windows
>>
>>323345114
I was hesitant about getting win10 because of that reason, but so far I haven't encountered any issues with it.
>>
Some old games don't work on win10. For instance SH2 emulated and Toy Story 2 don't work for me. I don't see any gaming reason to touch win10 until dx12 becomes a thing
>>
Most older Windows games won't work.
Including but not limited to, anything that uses SecuROM or StarForce.
For some you can just do the install on another computer, copy the files over and apply a crack.
>>
Is going from 8.1 to 10 going to require relearning the entire interface like going from 7 to 8.1 did?

That shit was annoying.
>>
>>323344627
better performance for gaming, win 10 consumes less resources than win7.
but if you play old games you probably want to wait before upgrading, i heard not all games are compatible with win10
>>
>>323345029
Works fine as long as you download all the necessary translation mods

I tried playing Crysis 1 and after trying every fix known to man it refused to even start beyond a black screen, but as soon as I reinstalled 7 it worked without doing anything to it.
>>
>>323345284
That or preferably win7 with daz loader. You can download or torrent a legit Windows ISO and burn it on aa dvd, as long as you make sure the iso is legit
>>
>>323345765
And it's basically applocale? For guide purposes I could essentially replace it applocale with that?

>>323345848
I have throwaway laptop that I booted 8.1 onto and it worked fine. Though the laptop no longer works with the battery in i need to plug it in and take out the battery but I think that has something to do with making a balls of taking the previous OS off it. Is 8.1 ok and would I be able to play the likes of the witcher 3 and MGS V on it?
I probably sound dumb as fuck but the last gaming pc i had was 10 years ago and prebuilt

>>323346196
and it was about $30 for a 7 ultimate key

>>323346196

That's not bad. The pirating OS is a temporary thing though as I do work it's just I'm paid monthly and dropped nearly my entire paycheque on this PC and it'll be here in the next few days

>>323344042
The fewer people who 'upgrade' to 10, the less pressure developers will face to be locked in to DX12. If you stay on Windows 7 you will help adoption of the Vulkan standard which will ultimately make switching off of Windows easier.

We can no longer allow a console company to hold back the PC as a platform. Getting access to your GPU's features should not require a forced upgrade to a platform that removes your control over your own system.

Zero reason to install W10 with open source alternatives like Mantle being picked up and DX13 being thrown into the trashcan.

Windows 7 and Windows 8 are already "botnets" after updates a few months ago. If you refuse updates then you risk your data being taken by third-parties instead of Microsoft.

You are a retard if you do not vet your windows updates at this point.

>muh win7 better than w10
99,9% of these posts are made by retards who can't deal with the smallest changes on interface. WIndows 10 is objectively better than win7 in every single aspect. How hard it's for you to understand than new technology is always better than old technology? Just upgrade goddamn shitty computers and stop asking retarded questions like these

>b-but muh freedom and spying
win7 was already patched with the same spying shit that w10 has. iIf you're worried about that you should just move to linux. Get elementary OS if are also an GUI retard
>>
I hate how they removed ccleaner without me knowing anything about it and I'm worried that things like these might happen in the future again.

I'll probably just install win7 on my new one when I get it.

This is shit UI design idiot, and any expert or a person equipped with common sense will agree
>>
>>323358632
claiming that's a shitty UI design decision is the same to claim that "alt+f4" is a poor function since there's already a "X" at the top of the windows to close the applications. Nice try, shitlord

Use
/r/microsoftsoftwareswap/
You can get windows for like 20~25 bucks from most of them. Can take some time to get a mail back from them, but its all legit
>>
I've had absolutely no problems with it. Got 8 for 10 bucks so the free update was a hood feel.
>>
>>323359191
why? You can just get any shitty pirate copy of w7 and upgrade to legit w10 one for free
>>
>>323358980
Tell me, what possible reason could excuse having 2 programs with different UI but almost the same options available and jumping between them because one is "simplified" and lacks functionality, and the other lacks other functionality because "it's not modern enough"?
>>
>>323344042
Not really, i've had it for over a year and while it had its problems early on they are all fixed now, there is no real reson not to get a free upgrade to a OS you'll have to get sooner or later anyway.

You can turn off all that shit that worries people, if you know anything about computer it's not a problem, and if you don't you probably don't care to begin with.
>>
>>323359417
IF yo ufeel like actually owning a key, its one of the cheaper ways to do it.

for W7 i would highly reccomend just pirating it because its on the chop-block for Microsoft anyway.

But 8.1 will stay legit for some time, if thats your cup of tea
>>
>>323345790
I scream profanities at Microsoft employees through my mic and exclusively listen to hardstyle just to spice up my data profile
>>
>>323344042
if you have cp and other illegal shit saved on your computer and you're too retarded to say NO to the tracking shit during the install, then windows 10 probably isn't a good idea for you.
>>
>>323344627
its free right now, unless you want to have to pay then go ahead and hold onto your bloated as fuck windows 8 lmao.
>>
>>323345284
No real risk. 8.1 and 7 are both fine from my experience but avoid 10 like the plague. There are some things about 8.1 that annoy me compared to 7 but nothing that will have you ripping your hair out.
>>
>>323359576
He's talking out of his ass anyway. Last I heard Microsoft was working towards improving the UI so everything matched up properly.
>>
>>323344042
Win7fag here. Is there any reason I should upgrade?

Also, MS botnet.
>>
>>323362080
No. The only people who defend 10 here are paid shills don't let anyone tell you otherwise. You can remove the botnet shit from 7 and 8 but it's not possible in 10 and even if it was there's no real benefit to upgrading right now with 8.1 already having great resource usage and DX12 offering little to no improvements in 99% of games.
>>
>>323362080
Maybe to 8.1.
Until DX12 starts really being used you don't really have a reason to upgrade to 10. And if you did, ignoring DX12 being exclusive to 10, it'd be for the same reason you'd want to upgrade from 7 to 8: it runs a little bit better.
>>
>>323352607
>xp
nice one, you retard; i use Win7
>>
>>323362371
You have absolutely no idea what are you talking about. w7/8/10 are equally botnetted and you can disable it as possible on all system (it's easier actually on w10)
>>
Last I checked 10 has problems with gtx 760s.

I'm itching to reformat my hd so I'm probably gonna try 8.1 for a short time and maybe go back to 7 if I don't like it.
>>
>>323344042
Of course there isn't, go-g-guys.
>>
>>323345740
>win 10 consumes less resources than win7.

You mean RAM usage? Because Win10 has a lot more system processes eating CPU time compared to Win7.
>>
>>323345790
So it's basically MacOS now. Super.
>>
>>323346685
>chrome
bet you are using Āµtorrent and VLC media player aswell
>>
>>323345740
Alot of games have a hard time.

I can't play Wolfenstein:TNO because it's sub 20fps regardless of settings.
>>
>>323345790
The only problem I have with cortana is I can't turn the fucker off during the startup.

>>323369612
Win10 pushes chrome and Chromium onto you for some fucking reason.
>>
I'll stop using windows 7 when it's no longer supported.

it's such a pain in the ass to start all over. all my settings, how I'm used to trouble shooting etc. all because you might get a few percentage better performance?
>>
>>323344042
yeah, privacy/botnet issues
