    I know F.E.A.R looks amazing on VB2 now as it is. Are you referring to a revised DX10 version of F.E.A.R? :w00t:

    Hi,

    I've seen this game list before billed as a DX10 list but when I check out some games eg Flight Simulator X they are DX9 not DX10 Shader Model 4.0.

    Is this just a list of Vista compatible games or is it a list of the DX10 Shader Model 4.0 games that will be available? If just compatible, are any of these going to be patched from DX9 to use DX10 Shader 4.0 capabilities?

    Finally, do you have a definitive list of games available that are specifically DX10 Shader 4.0?

    Al.

    Those sound more like hardware issues rather than Vista issues dude.

    BSOD is usually related to hardware, particularly memory.

    Well, I don't know what to say really? :)



    All I know from experience, is that BSOD's are usually a conflict between hardware and memory, overheating, or dodgy memory or perhaps faulty hardware..

    All my previous BSOD's (many over the years :D ) were from hardware, not the OS itself.



    Example: A few years back, I had a pair of 6600gts in sli.

    They were not cheapies either, they were leadtech factory OC'ed jobbies.

    That setup was never stable, so I ditched one of them, and things improved, but occaisionally during BF2 or F.E.A.R it would BSOD or restart.

    I got quite pissed off with this issue, so I knuckeled down and did some homework, got a temp reader (physical) and found my GFX card was overheating. I replace the stock cooler, and blam! No more issues.

    Same thing happened after I upgraded to the 7900gt.

    As far as I'm aware, no 7900 GT has stock memory cooling, so I got a zalman with memory sinks, and once again, no issues since.

    I doubt half of the issues people are having are actually to do with vista itself.

    Motherboard configuration and such can play havoc, as can poorly designed systems.

    Its easy to blame the OS though.



    I could be wrong though :D

    Nope couldn't have put it better myself. If its not dodgy drivers (which it rarely ever is) its overheating. Another problem is people never open their computers up and hoover the dust out once in a while. Easiest way at making sure your comp dont overheat, that and adding more fans (or water cooling if your s***ing money :p).

    Vista sucks! I have tried a lot of games on my computer and most of them don't work. Bill Gates can come and shove Vista up his *** because it blows my balls!!!!

    Edited by Cyclic, removed expletives

    Berlitz once wrote that a person who truly understood a language could swear it, we don't need you to show your command of the English language, please refrain.

    Very well said Cyclic, Vistarocks.

    Shouldn't we delete this? walker

    Yet another person thta forgets to mentoin which version he is running and that he is probably pc impaired as he cannot use the most easy-to-use MS OS out there.
