    Launch Base Error Origin

    LaunchBase isn't going to get new updates and is sorely outdated. It doesn't even really work with Origin installs from what I remember and the Ares version it uses is really old. Easier to just use Ares manually. All you need are the files and a batch script to launch with Syringe.

    Who is upgrading to Windows 10?

    When I see things by zocom, I just don't read very hard. It's always misinformed or alarmist.

    Who is upgrading to Windows 10?

    That was pretty obvious. I want to like it more but it locks in so many ridiculous settings...

    I was referring more to purplederp than you.

    Who is upgrading to Windows 10?

    That's what you get for having ten year old hardware.
  6. I got a BluRay drive in mine. I still buy movies on disc. I tend be a collector and not being able to watch my own media would be a drag.
  7. I mean, you could just fix it yourself and save the money. Then again, not everyone can do it I guess......

    Cloning units

    Did you copy the unit in full or just try to sneak in relevant bits? Probably best to use the entire unit as a base. You expect it to work like the Siege Chopper. Which part fails? Have you tried cloning everything? Unloading class and art included?

    Who is upgrading to Windows 10?

    I'll just let it update later through Windows Update. I'd rather it not tank my install. I'll let it get patched a few times before installing.

    Mostly Breath of the Wild, Twilight Princess HD, Wind Waker HD and some Black Ops MP on ye olde clan servers.

    How should new music be released?

    Try listening to Ayreon albums. One song at a time would be aggravating.

    Who is upgrading to Windows 10?

    I was actually referring to Win32 applications, not MS Store applications. Store applications already have mechanisms in place in Windows 10 to curb pirated Store products. zocom was trying to imply that Microsoft would nuke its own Win32 platform to prevent things like emulators, which... again... would be stupid.

    Who is upgrading to Windows 10?

    uh, UWP stands for Universal Windows Platform, which just means that Windows 10 unifies computers, tablets, phones and gaming consoles on the same base OS. The Microsoft Store is its own thing and has its own apps. zocom's suggestion is patently ridiculous. The chances of Microsoft making its own application platform useless would be suicidal and stupid.

    Cloning units

    Did you copy and paste the entirety of the Siege Chopper code? Can you post the whole unit?

    Cheap TV screens and refresh rates

    Well... yeah.

    Now Playing - Games

    I decided to start playing some Zelda games I haven't yet played. Started with Twilight Princess. Playing the HD version on CEMU. Runs pretty well for a WiiU emulator. Kicking back with some Borderlands 2 as well. Still fun.

    Cheap TV screens and refresh rates

    Samsung TVs are okay. Not the greatest but they work. I don't really buy TVs anymore so I couldn't really say who makes the best. I tend to go with LG or Visio on TVs anyway. For monitors, go with any brand that's at least well known. You can try a dirt cheap model but those usually lead to less than stellar results. I prefer LG and AOC for midrange, affordable IPS panels. ViewSonic is good for dirt cheap TN panels if you're not worried about color fidelity. If you want high end, ASUS ROG or Acer Predator. Surprisingly, Dell and HP make good monitors as well so take that for what it's worth. And avoid Sony. Everything they make now is garbage. You can find better for the same price.

    Album. No point in one at a time. Most of the time, the singles from an album aren't even the best. Just the catchiest.

    Blizzard Announces StarCraft: Remastered

    I saw this earlier. I love the original game so I'm definitely going to pick this up. Experiencing that powerful story with new visuals will be fantastic.
  20. If you didn't make so many asinine comments and threads, you wouldn't get the truth hurled at you so often. This whole thread is ridiculous. The Frostbite engine is a fine engine to use and it makes for spectacular visuals (see: Battlefield 1). It's your ignorance and complete lack of awareness that drives this "abusive" behavior. And, honestly, being called a derp is far from abusive.
  21. If Linux had the same compatibility and overall use as Windows, I'd switch to it but I have no real need to switch over. I'd say at least 90%, if not a bit more, of my games library is Windows only and I'm not leaving that behind. WINE is okay for a few things but playing demanding games is out of the question. 32-bit needs to die already. It only serves to limit hardware. There's no need to keep using it. Even with older hardware, 32-bit is still not necessary. I have a laptop from 2008 that runs Windows 7 64-bit. I thought about 32-bit but it was a waste and limited the potential of nearly a full gig of my RAM. Windows has its issues, but it's not the worst thing ever invented. Even if Microsoft did phase out 32-bit systems, nothing says you can't still use old hardware. It will become more and more difficult to continue using, but that will take a fair bit of time still. IDE died years ago but it's still possible to get new IDE drives. The whole point here is just another way for purplederp up there to whine about nothing because he's too stubborn to upgrade. Like I tell my customers, you can't keep using decade old hardware and expect it to keep up. You'll have to eventually catch up to those of us in 2017.

    [Ares] AI Crash with new country?

    Can you post except.txt and the debug.log file from the most recent crash?

    [Ares] AI Crash with new country?

    Try moving the China country to before the special houses (eg; GDI, Nod, etc).
