Hi Antikythera

Its been about 6 years since I used W10. (Early DVD version). I am wondering, does Windows use the timestamp of the file or does it read the version number in the registry. Try "touching" the driver date to set the year to 2020. Check the registry and see if you can rename/modify the entry so that your system does not know that the driver is the one to replace.

I was never a very good registry manipulator. I just used the regeditt to tweak some parameters, but the above may work for you.

Re: What game are you playing?

the earliest public pre-release ISO of threshold was 2014, not 2011

As stated W8.1 Update 1 is installed anyhow so it's not an issue. As for altering registry entry values, that is asking for whole world of pain as far as hardware drivers are concerned.

Windows 64-bit uses digitally signed drivers and checks each time it loads that they haven't been maliciously altered. It's been that way since Windows XP Professional 64-bit Edition (a very unstable technology preview, made from bits of Server 2003 and Windows XP Professional code). Altering the INF file breaks the digital signature.

Also installed drivers need to be WHQL certified to be properly ignored by Windows Update or it will install ones that are regardless of the Hardware Update policy settings you have in place.

So I doubt changing the registry values would help either.

It is marginally easier of course to fool 32-bit Windows by altering the date and version information stored in the *.INF files before installing a driver.

Re: What game are you playing?

Slipstream demo Lotus, Outrun etc inspired, with much improved playability. It's a great fun.
It has Kickstarter page and it's already funded for the basic goal. I will probably give it those 5$ just to get access to the latest build.

Re: What game are you playing?

I'm playing Bioshock Infinite and Witcher 2 on and off.

I also play old Windows games using wine, recently half way with BloodRayne.

My longest ongoing game play is StarCraft Broodwar. It's been 9 years I've been playing on and off. I'm almost at the end playing Zerg in Broodwar, but could never quite finish the campaign. When I come back to the saved game after a few months, I forget what my strategy was and end up repeating the episode almost from the beginning.

I don't think I will be able to finish all my games in my lifetime. I get easily enticed to buy cheap old games from gog, humble bundle, etc. and many are just taking up the hard disk space after having been played maybe 10 minutes or so.

There are also many adventure games I own that I cannot continue playing anymore since I forget what my progress was after a few months or years of absence between gaming sessions.

Thumbs up Re: What game are you playing?

Open Morrowind, Elder Scrolls III , of course. One of the greatest video games ever written. It's in the Fedora repos, but V0.42 with distant terrain is ready for release. You'd be better off compiling it yourself.

https://openmw.org/en/

You'll need the assets from the original PC Game Of The Year (GOTY) edition, which includes Tribunal & Bloodmoon. Best $10 you'll ever spend on a game.

Re: What game are you playing?

Can't seem to find time for games these days. If I could find time I'd be playing Quake. I love that game!
