Anyone Running Windows 10?

Post by chronicles5 » 30 Jul 2015 17:33

Alright, well the day is here and Windows 10 is finally released. But can we trust it? :anxious:

I was just reading the Windows 8 thread and I know I've heard in various places that W8 is not totally TRLE friendly in some cases. From others, I'm hearing that "anything that ran on W7 will run on W10" but I doubt that's true across the board.

I know it's probably early to start this discussion since it just came out yesterday, but I'm curious if anyone is running W10 and using TRLE and related tools successfully, or if any plans are in the works to ensure they will? (This question is asked with much love, patience, and respect to those who write and continue to work on our beloved TRLE softwares. :) )

Also, if this is the wrong forum for this question, I apologize. Wasn't sure where it should go.
Happy to be building again.

I have windows 10 running on one of my desktops. I "upgraded" from windows 7 2 days ago

I have tried to see if several levels downloaded from trle.net work and ...... so far, I have had no problems. but I havn't had a lot of experience in running windows 10 !

I have another machine, which I use ( windows 7) and it runs trle successfully - it always has !!

I have 4 weeks to decide whether to revert back to windows 7. I probably will....I can't see any advantage ( for me) in keeping windows 10 !

Obviously some old tools (TRLEWEST) won't work properly, because it requires a 32bit system....all my machines are now 64bit systems.

BUT...I am NOT an expert ...just a big fan of the tombraider levels I have had so much fun with , over the years !

well.....on the two machines I had windows 10 on...I am keeping it on one of them....just to try out various bits of software etc....and a small laptop ( that I can fold and use as a tablet etc...didn't work so well with windows 10.. ..so I reverted it back to windows 8.1.... that seemed to like the touch screen mode better than windows 10. My TRLE machine is going to stay with windows 7....along with another laptop that I use a lot.

I feel happier now

you can't teach an old dog new tricks, I guess

Windows 7 is still quite good and I'm sure it will serve you well. :)

An update on my end, I was offered the upgrade today and I ended up going for it. I was surprised that I didn't need to reformat or re-install anything. All of my TRLE stuff works fine and only needs compatibility mode settings for XP and 8-bit for the editor. So if anyone else is still on the fence, don't be afraid. :D

thanks for the info...I agreed to a download over time and I don't know when it will be completed and didn't know if I had done the right thing but you have reassured me. :)

I had the upgrade 3 days ago, really nice :D
Now there aren't lags when you play with Tomb4.exe, and also NGLE it's perfect :2thumbsup:

Unfortunately, doesn't work. When I want to play one custom, there is very little screen, and there is nothing to do with it.

TR Custom TR4 isn't working on Win10. I can play only once, later the game stop working. Installing patch didn't help. There is no problem with Tr2,3,5 customs but so what...
