What We're Working On - Metamorph Week Four

Complaining about the need to upgrade your OS to the newest version 5 YEARS after it came out is insane. Do you complain that you can't play PS4 games on your PS3? That is effectively what you are doing. Tech and software advances, and insisting that the rest of the world keeps making their games work on your 11 year old OS is silly.

Wanna wear your tinfoil hats and refuse to upgrade? Fine. Don't keep complaining about the rest of the world leaving you in the technological past, while probably posting from your smart phone that is sharing far more of your private data than Win 10 ever will.

I have 2 machines. In one I already use win10 for some time BUT my gaming machine still on win7. I dont personally care much about privacy so f it if they "monitor" me or not, only reason I kept win7 was performance. Althouth both machines are similar I have far better performance with win 7 on ark and poe (before this doom patch....).

Anyway I tried to install win 10 on my gaming machine and indeed take a lot more time for the memory to fill out but still leaks and after 1 hour or so the game starts to lag badly.

So is not a "win7" problem. It is more serious on win7 yes but it is another thing that is causing the problem and its unreleated to operational system
Hey things are bad, but ur win10 problems is something personal. I had game running for about 12 hours both in background and active didnt have any problems.

I question better performance from a Win 7 machine, but that could simply come down to the hardware vs optimization. I've never had a machine actually run worse after a Win 10 upgrade other than some ancient laptops with now out of date hardware. Irrelevant though.

It seems to me something to do with your setup. I've not had any leak at all from a Windows 8 gaming machine or a Windows 10 gaming machine. (I have an 8 at work due to problems with making 10 work with old peripherals that are too numerous to upgrade atm, but in the process) Far more people are having my style of experience than your style, which of course is anecdotal. It would seem that the problem isn't with the game's software or the OS then, and makes me think something is wrong on your end. What that is, no freaking clue. It could be something as silly as a background process that you have turned on that most people don't that's interfering. Why everyone immediately assumes it's the developer's fault and not their own bugs me.

That's why its strange. Probably some hardware imcompability? But only happened after the hotfix so for sure something was changed that caused this imcompability. Old better times that u could simply rollback to older patch and fix the problem.... and wait for a working new patch.

Ah, yes, the good 'ol "Oh, well MSFT wants everyone to swap to their newer, bloated, spyware-laden system, so that's good enough reason to demand everyone else punish anyone who doesn't follow what MSFT wants like good little robots."


win7 has the same telemetry stuff. it was added after win10 launched. i prefer linux, but poe doesn't run easily on it. win7 - much like winxp - is an ancient pos. let it die!
Win 10 users have consistently reported the same memory leak issue. Over and over, in every thread about this memory leak.

Whatever your opinions on Widows, this is not a Win 7 issue. Correlation is not causation, blah blah blah.

Win 10 computers are simply more likely to be newer and therefore have more memory for PoE to gobble up. So we see FEWER - but NOT zero - players reporting the identical issue with Win 10.

So you guys decided too drop fixing "Metamorph bosses can't be frozen"?

Yup, and end of win 7 service life means end of end user security patches... hope these people have fun with their vulnerabilities...

10 is 4 and a half years old people, most are getting ready to replace their PC at that point.

7 is almost 10 and half... it was released when the core 2 duo's were the next big thing... that 3ghz dual core yo.
