You people are crazy. Once I got Start8 I found Windows 8 superior to 7 in pretty much every way. Performance, features, UI (apart from Metro)...

i agree, but everyone has different opinions/biases. i think metro is useless, but i personally never use it or even see it.

Bit OT offtopic.gif but......does anyone else considering new Logitech G502 (no not the wireless deal...go google) a viable FPS mouse?
Currently using the g700s because I love the tilt wheel so any replacement would probably have to have that at least that is my bias. Wondering what others thought that don't rely so heavily on a mouse having a tilt function. I use that to swap weapons and its basically muscle memory now.

Also if anyone knows if the g502 is optical or laser that would be great...can't seem to find out what it uses for a sensor.

In that case - if nothing works (try looking around on google) - if nothing comes of it - then just simple try to:
Move BF4 folder out of the origin one (on your win8.1 desktop for example)
-Then open origin
-Start BF4 download (you won't have it installed anymore thus download will start from scracth)
-Wait 3mins for download to do its thing
-Close origin (whilst it's downloading -> don't cancel the download)
-Paste the BF4 folder you had on your desktop back to the origin one
-Open origin
-You'll see the download finish and "ready to play"
-However, close origin again
-Re-open origin
-Now it will say :"Bf4 installed"
-Then check for updates (make sure everything is up-to-date)
-Do a "repair"
-Then try and launch BF4

If ALL of that still doesn't work - redownload BF4 from scratch.
There's NO NEED to install win7 or win8.1. That's got nothing to do with it.
It's most probably linked to origin going full retard.
I've had the issue 2x: on win8 and win8.1
I don't know what it is, but on win7 works flawlessly.

No go unfortunately but thanks for the ideas none the less.
What I don't get is... If it was a bad download wouldn't it not work on Windows 7 either?
I'm on Satellite Internet and I only get 100GB a month. It's not very quick either.
Downloading again will have to wait until the end of the month. If I can be bothered. Might just go back to good old Seven.

The internals of Win8 are faster/more efficient than Win7. I'm looking forward to see what Win9 has to offer.
I really don't feel like I've been on Win7 that long honestly.

What's all this about linking files and CMD? thinking.gif

The proper way of "moving" files/folders without the app involved knowing about it.

That's pretty slick of Origin though, definitely a plus.

You can do that without starting the download.

Just paste the folder, run Origin, click Download and it will automatically recognize all the files.

I had no real problems after configuring it, but it was a pain over win 7

7 is always good to fall back on, let me know if you find a solution via Google

^^This is a great Explanation.

but why would you do that when origin has this sweet Feature? Steam can do it too. Those devs... wink.gif

Does linking files reduce Performance (as I think it'd be 2 searches per data read)?
^^[Probably something for another thread
