    It is out, however the calendar is unfortunately too flawed to accomodate the ELEX's greatness.

    you made a classic rookie mistake and thought that ELEX deals in our imperfect calendar system - no, from now on, everything will be ante and post ELEX

    If you have an account in GreenManGaming, today they emailed out a 25% off voucher, among the games that qualify for said voucher, is ELEX. The voucher is tied to your account so it's not transferable.

    What faction are you guys going to initially go with? I'm not sure, and I think I'll just wander around and do whatever I feel like for the first time playing..

    Outlaw of course, because the clerics are Anti-Elex and the berserkers are elven-like hippies.
    Also you get stupid cowboy hats and leather vests.

    Probably berserkers because I like magic and maces. Might do Clerics otherwise.

    Ordered 1060, should arrive today.

    On the side note, after 5 years of Windows 7, I finally formatted and installed Windows 10. Holy fuck this is a pile of shit. Everything is trying to connect online and randomly, something is downloading SOMETHING in the background using the network at max. Amazing progress. Also, random few second freezes when network related activity happens, initiated by Windows itself. Fucking fun.

    Thinking of going back to Windows 7 unless I find a cure and block everything on W10. Using Comodo to block all access meanwhile cause every fucking service wants net access. Disabled Windows Update, as usual, I need to tweak this fucking OS.

    You can turn almost all things off and uninstall all needless apps, including 99% of updates. The settings are hell to navigate through, though. It's like browsing Mac.

    This program can help a bit: https://www.oo-software.com/en/shutup10

    been using win10 for a long time, can't see to experience the same as you do. But people have been bitching about new versions of windows since the beginning :)

    The tool that lets you unfuck W10 is partnered with Microsoft. It's like pottery.

    Yeah I am not using such tool. I have W10 Enterprise so disabled a lot of settings and customized others, like Windows Update, using administrative tools.

    It's now performing much smoother. Still, unless I disable the Windows Update, wants to download a new fucking nVidia driver while I already have manually installed the new one from their site.

    The reason why I didn't update for so long was cause when Windows 10 was released, I knew better than to move on to it in less than a year. But I realized that it has been more than two years and the issues people keep complaining about have kept me from updating. Have turned off and blocked pretty much everything I can now, no more network usage and I will update this machine in like 6 months only now. I liked how Windows 7 was smart enough to disable Windows Firewall when I installed Comodo but in W10, I had to manually turn off the service.

    What a shit experience. Windows 7 was Install OS > Install Apps > You're Done. Here it's Install OS > Update Shit > MORE UPDATES > Spend Whole Day Blocking OS Apps from net access so they won't update > Derp.

    The shit UI isn't helping. Only reason I updated is because I know MS has intentionally removed support of new hardware from Windows 7. Cunts.

    On the side note, installed Pale Moon as the first browser on fresh OS this time. I only switched to Pale Moon a month ago so hooray. :D

    Have you heard of FUD? It's an old favourite of Microsoft's, and is the very tool they used to cement their grip on the marketplace.

    Do not poison this glorious thread with your measly problems.
    Win 10 is a cancer, everyone knows that. It's your own fault for installing that shit.

    Windows 10 really is a fucking nightmare. The new Metro(sexual) UI was made for tablets, retards and nu-male "tech enthusiasts", and it lacks basic fucking functionality from Windows 7 like just searching for a program in start and dragging it on desktop to make a shortcut, you can't fucking do that in Windows 10 because ???????? Maybe you can now with an update that injects ZOG CIA NSA spyware into your BIOS, but I don't really know or care because Windows 10 was too shit and slow to even allow me to do basic word processing on my laptop, after that when I got home I installed Linux Mint and shit just worked.

    Yeah, heaven forbid I disrupt all the shit-posting with more shit-posting. :lol:


    I just tried it. You can only open shortcut location from Start menu and then create a desktop shortcut to that shortcut. Whoever designed this interface had his head shoved up his arse. Majority of stuff that took one click takes multiple. Changing taskbar icons to show or hide took one right click in W7, here, it takes two clicks to do the same. Not to mention, why the fuck does everything look like a webpage link on this OS?

    BUT, OS is fast. Loading time is faster, apps open and launch fast and I am not noticing some issues with apps taking multiple clicks to open, like they did in W7. Then again, I had W7 installed for 5 years without any formats and this is a fresh install. We'll see how long it takes for me to re-install W10 in comparison.

    As for NSA spying, that shit is everywhere, from phones to OS. Plus, I switched to using TOR for everything "else" online some time ago..

    Not my phone though, I'm jacked straight into the Chinese botnet instead of the NSA botnet as I have a Xiaomi phone.

    I don't really use my Android for anything other than calls and receiving SMS so doesn't really bother me.

    But, I am afraid that NSA will watch us play ELEX and on behalf of Bethesda, try to intervene. Any low ratings and loss of sales can be attributed to NSA approved spyware, Windows 10.

    Let's face it, comparing ELEX (the CHAD game) to anything just creates an illision that it has something common with virgin games.

    Isn't there a classic shell type of program for Windows 10? Been using it for ages on my Windows 8 copy.

    And... ehm

    ELEX!

    Yeah but what's the point? Might as well get used to the shit UI Microsoft will keep pushing onto us rather than try to spend even more time fixing it. I remember trying to change Windows ME to Windows 95 look (which was similar to Win 98 look tbh) all with teal background, did same with Windows Vista, trying to make it look like XP.. but all that lasted for like few months before I just embraced the new UI.. just like players will embrace the new ultimate RPG, ELEX, into their lives.
