This new feature was first spotted by WalkingCat in the recently leaked build 14997, and although it isn't working yet, we understand it's a feature that will be showing up for Insiders very soon, as it's something that's set to arrive with the Creators Update.[/QUOTE]
[QUOTE=Wii60;51593803][url]http://www.windowscentral.com/microsoft-bringing-new-game-mode-windows-10-enhanced-pc-gaming-experience[/url][/QUOTE] Seems to be a great idea. After all, considering how horrible some games like Quantum Break have been running, having a mode that ensures that Microsoft's developers don't have to optimise their game at all seems like a great idea. /s
Sounds exciting. Though my current system is more than capable of handling most games, it'd still be need to be able to iron out the few quirks here and there.

Halo 5: Forge runs well (there are some weird quirks with the mouse performance and stuff like lack of FOV, but performance is solid) and the Gears 4 port performs fantastically. I've also heard Forza Horizon 3 runs well, as does Forza 6: Apex.

[QUOTE=Saxon;51593835]Yet the GoW4 port was amazing, I don't know what point your trying to make but its dumb.[/QUOTE] I'm aware of that but things like Quantum Break were pretty bad. Microsoft in general are very inconsistent. I also remember there being some strange performance issues with one of the new Forza games. Honestly Windows 10 universal apps are terrible in general and I feel the Windows Store is a terrible platform. Hopefully this new gaming mode will work well, but I don't see it interacting well with say, recording programs. EDIT: yeah I admit it was a dumb joke, sorry.
I wish they'd fix the bloody Windows store.. wasn't happy downloading 50GB of Forza Horizon 3 twice on 400kb/s down.
i know an easier way to add a "gaming mode" to windows 10, and thats to actually let it's users delete useless trash like cortana that are forced upon us and can only be deleted by going deep into the memory

Excellent, can squeeze a bit more performance out of this ancient machine of mine. Belongs in a museum more than it does on a desktop at this point.

Would be nice if they made it run faster in nongame mode too.
[QUOTE=Michael haxz;51593919]Anything you don't like can be easily disabled in Local / Domain Group Policy[/QUOTE] You're implying they didn't disable that several updates back unless your on enterprise.
[QUOTE=Bradyns;51593865]I wish they'd fix the bloody Windows store.. wasn't happy downloading 50GB of Forza Horizon 3 twice on 400kb/s down.[/QUOTE] I still think the most egregious gaming related thing to come out of the Windows store has to be the fact that the Windows store version of Infinite Warfare can't play multiplayer with the Steam version of it. And that there was no warning of this problem at all, so you had a handful of people drop the 60 bucks for it on the Windows store, only to discover that the multiplayer was dead because who the hell is buying their multiplayer games on the Windows store.
Well, this is surprisingly something good that we will get from Windows 10.
Really the only issue with windows 10 is the forced updates and its issues with older hardware (though that applied to every new OS) Other than that, a lot if the windows 10 hate is often unjustified or put out of scale. Im glad that they are bringing features to help all usera
Something that stops network usage too, i have a 1mb conn Windows regularly fucks me over taking up bandwidth.

Another thing that made most people hate Windows 10 before even trying it is how annoying Microsoft were with asking people to update to Windows 10 when it was free.
The forced updates thing is super annoying because it just randomly reboots when it feels like it. If you have the Pro version, you can turn that off but not on the Home edition which is what comes with the vast majority of consumer pre-built desktops and laptops. I don't even use the Cortana stuff so I turn whatever I can of that off. I do like how there's a metered connection setting but that's almost useless.

So why isnt this simply the default way the OS operates, MS? What logic do you lot have for making this a seperate mode except marketing?

[QUOTE=ihatecompvir;51593856]I've also heard Forza Horizon 3 runs well[/QUOTE] It runs well on some systems, but like garbage on others. While I get 100+ FPS, it still stutters like crazy. Locking it to 50FPS gets rid of most of the stuttering, but then it runs at, you know, 50FPS (AKA garbage on a 144Hz monitor)
[QUOTE=Mattk50;51593932]You're implying they didn't disable that several updates back unless your on enterprise.[/QUOTE] It works on Pro
[QUOTE=Mr. Someguy;51594064]People will complain about literally anything.[/QUOTE] You'll find later on in this same thread I apologised for it and gave legitimate criticism.
[QUOTE=TestECull;51594077]Can confirm, between those, the forced updates, and my personal preference regarding how windows should look I am passing 10 up.[/QUOTE] Afaik they're planning on just continually building on 10 for the next decade so let's hope that plan falls through for your sake

That's the reason I haven't picked up the new forza Just looked at reviews for horizon 3 and it apparently still runs like shit.
