Windows 7

Postby Tsar Hoikas » Fri Feb 12, 2021 9:41 pm

Although things may seem quiet, a new Gehn release will be coming at some point. We've had the hood up for quite some time, and a lot of changes have accumulated. In my testing, however, I have come up with a critically important question for our users... Do you still actively play Uru using Windows 7? As I'm sure you know, Windows 7 reached end of life a little over a year ago, so I would like to see where we stand. Currently, the Uru client sends us no telemetry about your system or gameplay habits other than the information you voluntarily submit... Off the top of my head, that's limited to pellet, heek, and CGZM scores and playing time. So, we don't have a way to know this information without asking ;)

This message doesn't mean we actively want to throw away Windows 7 users, but Microsoft officially marking an OS as end-of-life means that a lot of the components Uru depends on can and will.

Hahaha ! I'm one of "those" on Win8 :lol: But I barely play online anyway, so don't take my vote too seriously.
(Besides, it appears Win8 is going down the drain fast, being the black sheep of the bunch. I'm more and more tempted to make Linux my main OS...)

It's always good to read about the improvements on Gehn though. Good job on the upcoming release !

Windows 10 has some really nice power-user options like WSL2 and includes all of the under-the-hood improvements from Windows 8 ;). It also includes a completely functional HiDPI API that we need to be using in Uru. :ugeek: :ugeek: :ugeek:

I'm using Windows 7 but planning to migrate to Windows 10.
I don't play Uru online a lot.
Wait, I actually mean I don't play Uru online.
Wait, I mean I don't play Uru.
Wait, make that I don't play.

Windows 7 user here!
With no plans on switching to 10, unless MS seriously increase the UI customization options (which they won't). I'm not a fan at all of Win10's UI. :(

But I don't play online either; so make of that what you will. :)

I am still an active URU player and everything URU I have, including my aborted Age build stuff is on Windows 7. I also have Windows 10 which I'm slowly migrating over to, but I really hate the way it looks and behaves, so I will only switch over when I absolutely have to.

WSL2 and the HiDPIAPI are neat features and I can see the appeal, but it just isn't enough for me to cope with the rest of the bullshit MS stuffs into their OS.
Doesn't mean the OS is completely bad, of course - and it's a good thing that it's moving forward. I'm just not the target audience anymore.

:lol:
Personally I still play games, but mostly the same 3-4 games for the past couple years - I just like them so I keep playing them. Newer games don't interest me any more. So naturally people keep telling me to buy game X or Y which just came out, to buy a switch, a ps5, etc.
