  13. Non-SSE2 machines are a lost game, already.

      I'm not against progress, but I'm definitely against planned obsolescence. But I guess we can mostly thank the flashy fancy web for that. I'd rather have quality content on a white background than a 100MB per page website any day of the week.

      For the record, planned obsolescence, enforced by MS was actually the main problem here: MS VC++ 2012, was the 1st MS VS that enabled SSE2 by default (and all its successors do so, too). For MS VC++ 2012, it was possible to compile for non-SSE, by using the /arch:SSE and /Oi- compiler directives, but I don't  know whether later MS VS versions still offer such compiler directives or not. In any case, since the default became to compile for SSE2 from MS VC++ 2012 on, almost no author ever bothered to disable that, even if SSE2 instructions weren't actually needed or helpful for the software being compiled.

  14. Tweaking Win 10 into tameness is a losing game. It's much better to keep on any previous version till MS wakes up, and gets real...

      dencorso in counter strike global offensive XP performed 178FPS , 7 performed 160(Pretty stable xp is going beyond 200 but 7 is stable at frame rate ) and 10 resulted serious performance drop 120FPS but very unstable . My question is why Gamers are moving rapidly to 10

      Gamers are id*** with a fanatical craze for the latest DirectX and latest everything to make themselves feel that they own the most cutting edge hardware.

  23. Driver Errors appearing more and more... Sure, "this is not a problem with IP.Board but rather with the SQL server", but it's a PITA, anyway, even if the worse SQL Errors are gone!!!

  24. SQL Errors gone!!! But Driver Errors still appear, now and then... "This is not a problem with IP.Board but rather with the SQL server", for sure.

  25. SQL Errors galore!!! "This is not a problem with IP.Board but rather with your SQL server."
