Re: Windows 8 problems/solutions please post them here

:grin: I had previous DxWnd Version installed. After using newest version with the setting you proposed the crashes vanished. :grin:

Many thanks as always TC.

Re: Windows 8 problems/solutions please post them here

Thanks for the advice TC, tried the setting you mentioned but the issue still persists. I guess i'll stick with it and wait for further updates of DxWnd. Meanwhile I'll use mpr++ for UDM and other supported mods as I love the shiny ship models. Most important is that the mouse lag issue is gone and ...

Re: Windows 8 problems/solutions please post them here

Hi folks, i just read through this topic completely and since I'm running Win 8.1 now I tried out the fixes in this thread. (One after another, with mod reinstalling every time, UDM III. They all work like a charm for me but while using DxWnd the game occasionally crashes when the window is minimize...

Re: Information on eWarZone

Just tested and got the same error. Seems to be WZ/Server related.

Just as: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ue_UDHH-EzY taught me. cleverwise you're really living up to your name. Bring it on. Rea...

Re: Which GPU should I go for?

Exactly. It was only an upgrade kit. Mainboard, CPU, and 4 new RAMS 2GB each. But all in all I assembled a completely new PC step by step. Changed pretty much everything and bought additional drives. The only thing I kept was one HDD. Everything else had been replaced.

Re: Which GPU should I go for?

No, I only got the card and the included Diablo III mouse pad. Saw the card offered with the games bundle but it would have been 40 bucks more expensive. As the card already was 10 bucks above my budget I went for it. I had to blow up my budget by 120 € concerning the new PSU & case. All in all I sp...

Re: Which GPU should I go for?

100 bucks? :shock: The cheapest i find is 289,90 € http://geizhals.de/asus-rog-matrix-hd7970-3gd5-90yv02p1-m0na00-a837283.html 31 bucks more expensive than mine. Are you talking about the Platinum Edition? I bought the Ghz Edition for 259 €. Well after several very unlucky years I guess it was time ...

Re: Which GPU should I go for?

Ok you really convinced me now. Gotta try Shadow Warrior out. I also got Dishonored but have to look further into it. But I also like that steampunk setting there. There are not that many games where you get killed by lots of frickin rats :-D I also played several hours of Bioshock Infinite. I gotta...

Re: Which GPU should I go for?

As usual: A bit of everything I guess. Currently I'm into Metro - Last Light but stuck there. Lots of FIFA 14, NBA 2K14, Far Cry 3 and so on. I am really looking forward to Watch Dogs and hate that Ubisoft delayed it into Spring 2014. Preordered it with my PS4 but canceled again due to delay. Guess ...

Re: Which GPU should I go for?

A Flash option? That would be cool. Keep me informed about the new cards mate. Impressions: The Reason: The case is now closed and the PC is under the table. All cables are connected. I took this shot during the first running test after the refit I was very impressed that the card fitted inside the ...

Re: Which GPU should I go for?

I went for an OCZ 80+ PSU with 700w after seeing a PC Games Hardware Test Video where they used that PSU with the ROG Matrix HD 7970 Ghz Edition. I also bought a new case. And after 2 days of wiring and pulling plugs out and back in everything is finally up and running like a charm. That card is fri...

Re: Which GPU should I go for?

Thanks for the advice. To be honest I didn't think about the driver side but now that the decision is made I guess I gotta live with it. I ordered the ROG 7970 today for 259€. Should arrive at Tuesday or Wednesday. I thought the same way concerning the PSU. Mine doesn't even have the required 2x 8pi...

Re: Which GPU should I go for?

Thx Flocke, interesting article. Do I understand correctly that mantle is AMD's equivalent to NVIDIA's physx engine? Or is it more comparable with DirectX? Well, even my 5750 is enough to play Battlefield 4 but I guess the last 2 years I got used to High and Ultra level settings with games so I want...

Re: Which GPU should I go for?

Thanks for your opinion. I also think that The ASUS ROG HD7970 looks good. Guess I'll stick with it unless someone else has another advice. Still a few days left before order placement has to be done.
