Definitely the best DLC BF4 has had and/or BF3 had.
So yeah best maps so far for me.

I've jumped on win8 to see any SLI differences between win7 and win8
I hate win8's feel lol

Just boot into the desktop directly. There is a registry tweak to bypass the initial lock/clock screen also. As long as you have plenty of shortcuts set up on your desktop, it's fine. I don't use Metro at all, and I've uninstalled any apps related to it that can be removed. I've also bypassed the Microsoft Store and Skydrive. There are lots of tweaks you can do to make it Windows 7-like. I also have the Run command and CMD window icon pinned next to the Windows 8 logo in the taskbar.

Also, Winkey+X is your friend. thumb.gif There is always Start8 if you really need it: http://www.stardock.com/products/start8/

If you fully tweak your Win8.1, you can use less than 1GB of RAM for the OS.

I've got startisback (full license) - uninstalled all apps already, boot past login and straight to desktop but I still dislike it lol.

Why did they get rid of Aero though - I loved it so much.

Good lordly o lord of lords... just for all that work I'm waiting for Win9.
Needing to do a minimum of 7 steps after installation and optimization is crazy. Then the steps are only band-aids, ready to be reset at a moments system update.

Meh windows 8 is great, metro start screen is great. Been on it since consumer preview and would never go back. Each to their own though.
post #21686 of 29735
On 1.3GB at cold boot on win 8.1 - which is around 1GB lower than on win7 for me.
Either or - don't see what's to "love" about win8.
Anyway - not going to drive this on a useless never ending off-topic debate.

I'm curious to see how it performs in SLI and vs win7.
Finally installed all the updates (second assault etc) so ready to jump on win8 now and see!
Will report back.

EDIT:
Since posting I've been sitting for 10mins for BF4 to launch and it isn't.... rolleyes.gif

I personally love 8.1 thou I don't have it myself. Seems snappy and quicker than 7.

On topic .... Anyone able to play yet? I tried before work and couldn't.

I didnt even say anything. Just defending heresy.

Wasted over 30mins trying to get BF4 to launch on win8.1 - gave up - going back to win (winning) 7.
Can't be bothered with this crap OS anymore.

Let me know if it's another "DICE" feature.
As far as I can tell :
Launches really well on win7
doesn't launch after restarts etc on win8.1

Strange... I've never had problem launching it in Win7 or Win8.1. confused.gif I think someone mentioned you might have to force the 64-bit EXE to launch. There is an option in Origin for this game to force a certain mode, 64 or 32 bit.
