Any more thoughts on Windows 10 ???

Post by JunoJim » 01 Dec 2015 17:32

I'm still getting bothered by the free upgrade offer. I upgraded one PC, that was only for browsing & streaming. It turned off my sound - I don't know what else, but I'm sticking with Win 7 until I hear something really good... BTW - it's NOT really simple to revert - I think I had to go to "programs & features" in control panel then "view installed updates"...

Microsoft probably saw your volume was rather high so they turned it down for you :D

Familiarwith the TV series "Person of Interest" ?

Due to technical problems I had to change the version of my PC to W10. Everything is actually working fine save for that when I start a certain game, the window frame appears as if I was in windowed mode, but I'm not:

How is it possible to get into the "real" fullscreen mode? I can't even see the health bar because of that issue...

I have downloaded but not installed 10 and yes, it constantly pops up but I want to finish btb and start the Xmas levels first.
I know I will NOT auto configure and that SpyBot has an anti-beacon feature that I will use but I don't know if my TR downloads will be messed up as that has happened in the past with other systems.
I just don't want the headache of searching and finding what I need but sooner or later I will have to install.

Family members have said that their games seem faster but they don't play TR.

Manarch, you can use this for the exe's called tomb4.exe, you need just to install it one time in the folder of a level http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showthread.php?t=207720 (it works also with Windows 10) :)

What settings have you got, if the TR custom is working for you?

No, I didn't mean Level Editor program, but only TR Custom. Clik right mouse button on starting file, and you get settings. And which I have to use, to work game on Win10? Setting the compatibility of Windows doesn't help, the same changing of resolution. When I wanted to play, the screen of game is very constricted.

Thanks for the link LoreRaider. I can say that this works in Windows 10.....however.... one little issue....

It leaves your taskbar at the bottom of the screen (sometimes) so, you do get rid of the title at the top and the boarders on the sides BUT you still get the visual obstruction at the bottom (sometimes).

....Trading in one problem for another...... On the bright side, you can at least, see the health, dash and air bars.
