    In what way are they incompatible?

    Do you know of a place I can buy these digital download? I don't want to use a CD/DVD in the drive.

    I have just gone to Windows 8 and it does feel smoother and less stutter for BF4 than 7 was.

    You can buy C&C ultimate pack on amazon for Origin .. $5.

    Kinda redundant as everything prior to RA2 has gone for free :p

    Hopefully they fix the sleep issues for networked computers. Frustrating isn't the word

    Sadly it is £24 here and I already have the most modern 3 apart from C&C4.

    Still don't know what sort of incompatibility there is meant to be. If it's a disk problem then maybe the Ultimate pack would solve that.

    Could be that mouse cursor thing which they changed in 8.1.

    You can still buy from US Amazon if you use an American billing address and it goes on sale every other month so just setup a price alert and you're good to go.

    I made iso backups for my games and run virtual disks so need for no dvd or cd cracks, sorry I wasnt clear on the issue, Red alert 2 and yuris revenge run great on W7 sp1, installed w8.1 and its running like its on an old 486, lagging like crazy. Tried multiple video drivers , xp compatability mode, tried running from my cds and the same outcome. Installed w7 again and red alert2 runs normally.

    Thanks for the tip. I gotta admit I didn't look for long (I think I just used Alt+F4 while the focus was on the desktop). Maybe I got too lazy...

    Yep

    And at the same time when Android has limitations it doesn't matter because you can customize it and you have 3rd party apps or custom ROMs that fix the problems. Since when people stopped customizing Windows? All leaked stuff including start menu is very easy to get. There are tons of free and commercial options.

    all charms can already be turned off and you can set to the os to boot straight to desktop yourself, i will not pay for start8 when all it does is change those things automatically and adds a start button which is there in windows 8.1 anyway, it took me 2 mins to show someone who was stuck on xp and didnt really know how to use a pc let alone upgrade to use the start button for shutdown/restart its really that simple

    are you talking about how slow the game runs on windows 8?

    there is a fix but the fix speeds the game up too much on my system.

    as soon as it starts, I lose. maybe they will get tired of me complaining about it and fix the bug.


    and about the updates to windows 8

    Im waiting for the window mode for the apps to see if they did a better job then stardock.

    and how many updates will it take to make this system perfect.?

    I ended up going back to BF3 because BF4 is just unplayable for me. Constant crashes and random freezes.
