  1. If your cpu doesnt support win7 how can it support poe? Jesus xp support ended last year, that should have been your queue it was time to go hard or go home, most of the customers i worked with in tech support did the same (going to 8 to their dismay) Thanks for the update - I run WinXP on my gaming system (Core i7 920, 24GB RAM, 2 x 580GTX graphics) and was concerned at its omission from the system requirements. As for those wondering why I and others are sticking with WinXP:Lower memory/CPU usage (typically 200-500MB less than Win7); More configurable thanks to XPLite and nLite - Win7 has 7Lite, 8 has nowt; Windows Product Activation can be more easily "managed"; Easier to secure (using software like Process Guard and System Safety Monitor - neither available now but no equivalent exists for Win 7+, nor likely to due to MS' restrictions on kernel modification on 64-bit systems); No GUI disasters like TIFKAM - XP's UI changes are generally a downside compared to Win2K but are almost all optional; Supports old hardware (the Microsoft Force Feedback 2 joystick and Microsoft Strategic Commander gamepad won't work on 64-bit systems); No 64-bit stupidity like requiring separate Program Files folders for 32 and 64 bit applications or storing 64-bit code in Windows\System32 while having 32-bit code in Windows\SysWOW64 Some issues are due to (Microsoft's kludgy implementation of) a 64-bit OS, but running (and paying for) a 32-bit version of Win8 seems to be asking for insult on top of injury. A switch to Linux would make more sense but there's very little in the way of application-aware firewall software which I would consider essential for online security (the closest would be TuxGuardian which has not been updated since 2006 and doesn't really offer the security options available from Windows products like Outpost or Look'n'Stop). The reason they have different folders is because of requiring 32bit because otherwise everyone would piss and moan that none of their $10k programs made for windows 3.1 that they are virtualizing through a vm, through a vm, through a vm because they're too much of a cheap miser to just ****ing buy a new program that works on a new os. (i see this all the time at work)
  2. Someone had something similar to this, when he was testing someone else's corrupted save file. when he loaded it up he couldn't save, or even make new saves, even after a system restore lol
  3. That would be kind of frustrating that the wurm is only on $50 kickstarter preorders, I didn't know that when I did my $20 pledge :|
  4. Well the entire point is to get his feedback, either post or current. If it was all about the game, we could go look anywhere on youtube or vimeo or whatever. A picture lp could work, but it wouldn't be nearly as exciting if he wasn't either riffing on it, or talking out loud the thoughts going through his head while he plays it.
  5. I want to see videos of this. Why would I want to see 10 minute clips on youtube? We're looking for your commentary not some pictures.
  6. When do I get a cool ~kickstarter badge~?
