Win7 Vs Win10 (Gpl Test)
Posted Feb 10 2017 - 09:39 PM
I spent almost two entire mybroga seasons fighting against my internet provider... and now it appears that most of my connection troubles (lag and loss of packets) was somewhat related with a change of computer I did.
Now I have both with the same install (copied from the former to the newest computer) and did some comparisons.
Both are laptops with i7 processors (one of them of second generation and w7 and the other of third generation and w10).
I noticed two main things. One is the lag. In the newer computer I just can't enjoy online races. The lag is unbearable and I'm a real danger to all other drivers racing somewhat close to me.
In the older one, with w7, I enjoy racing. I still have some loss of packets but the experience is definitively better.
The second thing I noted is that the FF of the wheel is much more predictable in the older computer, which allows me to drive much more confortably and to add some risk in my maneuvres.
So... I still can't discover which damned thing is causing those differences... are the crappy window versions (which always move to worst and heavier) or do you think it could be related to some other thing I'm not considering?

This video springs to mind, it starts off at the Win 10 setup screen although you'll find the stuff he talks about if you search deeply enough in the settings menus:
There are probably better videos / sites but it might give you some ideas. I've switched all this stuff off on my new machine and it definitely helps, although it still does all sorts of bizarre things and I'm pretty disappointed with Win 10 generally.

So my decision is to only use an MS OS when there is no other way...
Linux has all the features you need for online action, and wine gets better every day.
Marcos I know you have the problem of GPLShift in linux, why don't you ask in the winehq forum for help?

Yes, Cookie. The single race I could enjoy in the newer computer (which has double boot) was under linux. The connection worked much better than under w10.
But I had to drive using paddles because the single software allowing to me to race with the stick is fairshift, that makes me do a lot of mistakes when gearing. That's because if you use 0.221 seconds or less to gear, the gear doesn't enter and you'll be in neutral...
I'll ask at winehq. You're right.
Thanks to all! Marcos

For some reason, it would not show me any other power plan,other than balanced.
So I followed this info link https://windowsforum...er-plan.212676/
Obviously,only do the registry bit at your own risk.I do not take any blame for any later problems.
That is of course, that you have this issue ?

This is a really good freeware software to turn off all "calling home" features of Windows 10.
You have to restart and use O&O ShutUp10 at least two or three times to end all stuff.
After a Windows update you should run this tool again.

I know it's a personal thing and there is a help section on the tabs (plus Help Menu)but is there something I should look out for.Or just a case of looking deeply into this app,by myself ?
Do you activate this to stop background stuff.So do you activate in bottom tray,whilst gaming? Or is it active,once you set it up ?
Also found this add on for your browser,to help cut down on tracking.It is available for Chrome,Firefox and Opera.
AND A REVIEW QUOTE:
Decide for yourself
Now that you’ve heard Ghostery’s side of the story, you can decide whether or not to use the Ghostery extension in your browser. While it’s true that there is some data being gathered, Ghostery makes a significant effort to explain what it’s doing. And since you have to explicitly opt-in, there’s not a lot to complain about here.
If you’re still skeptical about Ghostrank, there’s no obligation to enable that feature, and you’ll still retain all of the same tracker blocking benefits. And of course, you can always use network monitoring tools like Little Snitch or Wireshark to verify that there’s nothing unexpected going on in your network. Personally, I continue to use Ghostery in various browsers to help thwart specific trackers. But of course, Privacy Badger offers similar functionality, so you’re never forced into relying on a single service to stay private online
