  1. Making new post so there's no confusion. Feel free to give more details or hit me up in PM. I can help with unsigned drivers (as long as I can prove you are actually using zboard fang and not using pirated software with spoofed device ID). Windows 10 v1903 has been more stable for me than the past years worth of releases, so I want everybody to have the same experience.
  2. Hmm... I had GPU issues with 1809, but none with 1903. Try DDU first- make sure to set Windows Update not to automatically install drivers.. If that does not fix the problem, try this: Check Windows Integrity: sfc /scannow If all is good: DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth Should be successful. If there is an error, hit me up. Reinstall driver. If you still have issues, do an in-place upgrade. (Make USB media using Windows 10 Media Creation tool and run setup while in Windows). Wi-FI driver should be as simple as downloading from manufacturer's website, disconnecting from internet, uninstalling using Device Manager - then - running uninstallation tool in the driver setup directory. Reboot, install manufacturer driver, reboot again, try to connect. PS: 8gb RAM got screwed by the Spectre/Meltdown fixes. InSpectre by GRC used to work, but not with 1903. You will need Registry patch. Check steps here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4072698/windows-server-speculative-execution-side-channel-vulnerabilities-prot EDIT: Looks like GPU issue got solved? Now it's just Wi-Fi? If so, then disregard this post.
  3. Nothing aside from Windows.old (rollback) directory that I erased using disk cleanup once I made sure all was working well. Here are my Windows and upgrade folders if you want to compare sizes:
  4. Windows Sandbox is a nice feature. Also nice not to have bogus web results come up when I use the search on the Start menu. More control over Windows updates, and easier rollback of those that are fubar. Improved RAW file support too, if u use windows photo viewer. I had to stop using it cuz it was freezing all the time. These are just the ones off the top of my head. Interestingly, I didn't lose any space for future upgrades though I was expecting to. Had about 44.3gigs free on my boot drive when I upgraded-- have 44.1gigs free now.
  5. We've got some brilliant designers here- if anything, we'd hold the copyright (=F|A= and the artist(s) who designed it)
  6. Haven't bought any of the DLC yet, what would you recommend starting out with? It's all so tempting lol
  7. Throwback to my favorite game of all time
  8. Win10 v1903 is looking to be gold. Will update in a week with some detail. Had a few minor issues- but runs a heck of a lot better than 1809.

      You "in the program"?  I am, too, but never availed myself of any of the features.  


      I see some of the new features:


      1. Windows Update Feature with auto-rollback
      2. Reserved Storage
      3. Automatic Troubleshooting
      4. Windows Sandbox
      5. Windows Security
      6. Linux on Windows enhancements

      • You can name a file starting with a dot.

      @RedBaird I don't run insider builds, but I tend to upgrade to the latest builds the day they're released unless I'm aware of potential incompatibilities. The only exception was 1809 due to software incompatibility and the 0 day reports of missing files. I eventually tried 1809 in December and rolled back within a week because of bugs and poor gaming performance. Have had no such issues with 1903.
      The sandbox feature and better Linux integration is something I've been looking forward to. Files with names starting with dots have been possible with "ren" command before this version. Handy for development and compilation though. Dot files are typically hidden files (UNIX/Linux/macos), similar to "$" shares in Windows. They aren't hidden in Windows though.

  9. Oh yay, I wasn't alone! The brand name makes me cringe hard- but the more I see, the more tempted I am to order one of these... and perhaps one of their keyboards too. (I need replacements for both my mouse + kb) I'd miss the infinite scroll wheel of my logi mouse- but definitely not a deal-breaker. Thanks for sharing!
  10. We all know him, he's practically the face of tech journalism... and god can he be annoying. But whether you love him or hate him, Linus finally get what he deserved. Enjoy!
  11. He doesn't like AMD cards, and it's super easy to get 1660ti performance out of it. I think you are confusing the 1660 with the 1650. The RX 570 beats the 1650. 1660 (when OC'd to TI performance levels) easily beats the RX 590. https://www.gamersnexus.net/hwreviews/3451-evga-gtx-1660-review-vs-1660-ti-rx-590-more https://www.techspot.com/review/1813-geforce-gtx-1660-mega-benchmark/
  12. Wait if you can, 3rd gen Ryzen processors are right around the corner. Should be on-par with or edge out Intel's 9th gen. Don't like MSI myself, but a B550 (current gen is 4xx, so I'm just guessing?) Tomahawk would probably do the trick for a mobo if you want an MSI board. a 1660 (non-ti) would probably be what you'd be looking for in a graphics card.
  13. Could you provide suggestions on what to replace these maps with? Maybe you'd like to see one of your favorite maps on Jay1? My feedback on this list: I can agree, Capuzzo doesn't work very well on Jay1. Kerkyra is too small. Venice is a "staple"- it should be kept. UJE_00 is my favorite map, afaic the votes aren't a total bomb- It's one of those maps you either love or hate tho. Braundorf is meh, Castle should go, not a fan of Eagles. I like Temple, but it can get a bit long in the tooth. How about Smiley's remaster of Egypt in it's place? (FA_Egypt)
  14. Methinks someone stole my april fools joke (But for real- if this is legit, this holds promise. Unfortunately, I see some sweetfx shaders....)
  15. Agree completely. Looks like others have said what I was going to cover, so I'll leave it at that.
