A rant about the Windows 7 incompatibility…
A bad move in my opinion, as the two previous games were compatible with that OS.
I know that you want us to upgrade to latest OS for many reasons, including security, but this upgrade is a downgrade in my opinion.
It might have allowed you to put some little upgrades to the game engine, and adding a layer of network compatibility and security, but that also could’ve worked in Windows 7 if you really wanted to.
I don’t understand why doing that sudden and brutal change in the trilogy, as it will make a part of your playerbase not willing to upgrade into Windows 10 for many reasons.
It was clearly proven in the past that Windows 7 is a strong and solid system that can even be made compatible with DX12, and that will be kept updated until 2025, because lots of people still use it and despise that Windows 10 upgrade that is worse in so many ways:
The most painful in that is that it was possible to play HITMAN 3 on Windows 7 before a recent update: Reddit - Dive into anything
Why removing that possibility while it is harmless and that can bring new more players?
Ubisoft recently had a similar issue but it was concerning the launcher, who was suddenly made incompatible with Windows 7 to force people upgrading and lots of them got their entire gaming library locked because of a simple change in a file. Hopefully they came back to reason and everything works now:
As to myself i don’t want to be forced into that new OS until the last moment, even considering the possibility of switching to linux as i really don’t like that new OS (like many others) for lots of reasons.
Anyway this is the only game that i have that is using Windows 10. All my others games are compatible with Windows 7 and some that are way hungrier in terms of resources like GTA V.
Forcing me using that crap that is Windows 10 only to play this game is a bad move and will deeply affect my playtime, as i’m barely using that OS.
I’ve tried many methods around the internet but unfortunately nothing really worked. I prefer having everything into one system rather than constantly switching between one and another.
Looking forward to find a workaround for that. Too bad IOI
