Will it though? It's not the actual binary that's streaming. The game will be running on Google's end. You won't even need a good video card. It will essentally be an interactive video stream. A twitch stream you can control.

Are you retarded? "Streaming the binary"?

It's a normal game streaming service, it's not the first one. It's a existing concept you piece of shit.

And yes it will run like shit you fucking moron. A lot of people have less than 25Mbit/s connections with a ping >30 to Google, not even considering other people using the same bandwidth (siblings etc.).

A fucking 1080p60 stream needs at least (bare minimum) 5Mbit/s. So besides your latency you get like an additional 4ms transmission time.

When i run some gaymes on my pc the actual input lag(without the monitor) is most likely <30ms. A good monitor adds like 10-20ms on it, leaving you with a bit more than 40ms complete input lag. Your streaming shit will have to do the exact same thing, but will also need to transfer data twice over the internet. So an additional 64ms on it. Now we're looking at 45ms VS 110ms, a pretty big difference. Then there's the problem of QoS in the internet. The internet runs on the paradigm of "best effort", data can get lost or take longer and in live gayming you can't have a real big buffer to wait for retransmission. So your stream will be irregular at times with additional image errors. Also the image is strongly compressed (by a hardware encoder), so visual quality is shit too.
Not to mention that you can't play anything remotely competitive (forget any shooter besides cod) without getting stomped in the ground.

Tl;dr:
As long as you don't have a direct Fibre connection to your isp and Google is also located in the same data center you'll have a unpleasant experience with shitty image quality and high and even unstable latency.

5Mbit/s is nothing in most casuals would be perfectly happy with 720p.

>>70217619
Last time I tried godot it was pretty shitty. Very limited and no good control system (e.g. scripting language). Native extensions are a mess.
Other engines I tried:
>Unity
Also pretty shitty, lots of bugs/odd or misbehavior, closed source so can't inspect what's going wrong. Performance problems and lag spikes happen in production games. C# sucks.
>UE4
GUI keeps crashing every 5 minutes, and the only way to use C++ is to call into the kismet stuff (i.e. deprecated API for the graphical programming system they use) because the same functions are not actually available in the proper C++ api (I seem to recall it's not possible to bind an object to a bone socket without that, among many other things). The crashes every 5 minutes is what really did it for me, though. At least it's opensource.
>urho3d
Really nifty engine. Clean api, solid workings and good performance for what I tried. Spotty documentation, reasonably useful irc, the level editor is very limited but it does the job (it's also an external tool, no fully integrated dev env, but that's not bad for my workflow). Otherwise seems as full-featured as UE4 or Unity, except of course no asset store. There are some free asset collections on the web so it's not too bad. Definitely recommend.
>graphics-only/extendable graphics frameworks: ogre3d, osg, etc.
They're sometimes hard to setup from the get go. ogre3d and osg are exceptions. Both ogre3d and osg are inflexible due to their history. Neither are particularly well-known for good performance properties, osg being faster than ogre3d. They're great for educational purposes but I wouldn't use them for other things. Various extensions for more than graphics, but they're in differing states of unmaintained and broken. ogre3d has its own asset pipeline (and it's a pretty shitty one), which is pretty gay for what's supposed to be a simple graphics-only framework.
>>
>>70234124
For vidya, reference counting is more appropriate than gc. That is because while performance suffers, it is deterministic. The problem is that you still need a gc pass to deal with cycles, but that's lightweight compared to a full gc pass. The more you know, little boy.

>>70224542
No. For 2D in general you should always make your own engine. If you're a competent programmer it will always take less time to make the game and engine than it would to learn an existing 2D engine.

Pape?

Do you ever say to yourself.. Gee whiz.. why are the icons on the taskbar always flickering in windows 10????

wait..... i know the answer..
windows performs a redraw of the icons when a SHChangeNotify call is made to shell32, specifically either SHCNE_ASSOCCHANGED or SHCNE_UPDATEIMAGE, as outlined here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/api/shlobj_core/nf-shlobj_core-shchangenotify

This looks like shit and its amazing this issue persists. Now take a look at microsoft 'support' forums. Ouch.. here's a complaint about the issue from 2009 (LOL, 10 years ago) 'Taskbar Flickering constantly. How do I make it stop?'. A more recent one has a Top answer from windows Expert 'A. User' suggesting to run 'sfc /scannow' to solve the problem!

no one is behind the wheel of the ship at the windows division of microsoft, or even microsoft in general. really sad stuff

this less of an issue than Windows 10 shockingly bad virtual workspaces.

Regardless of hardware windows 10 will often fail to switch workspaces unless you delay your click while moused over juuuuust right.
And then the animation won't draw the screen properly, creating a very jarring animation in between.

I went with the bulk approach and just applied anywhere hiring any type of IT related people, I probably applied to 200 jobs within a couple of days.

Fortunately, starting salary was high enough with this current job that it was worth moving for. You REALLY should be applying to those places that list ridiculous experience requirements for low level jobs. I've even heard that they put those requirements to scare off people like you.

Yes. Get into the habit of it, as it'll let you type faster. However if you remapped your caps lock to something else, you can hold a shift key if you need to type something in all caps.

What should we do when Windows 7 support ends? It was already a pain with XP, but at least there was still another decent OS to move to.
In descending order of preference:
>Windows 7 Extended Kernel
I've seen projects like this for Windows 98, ME, 2000 and a canceled one for XP (where did that go, anyways?)
>Stay on Windows 7
Most programs I'm concerned about will probably still work with Windows 7 for at least a few years after EOL, although there are a few security concerns
>Windows 8.1
Only if I really have to. Not a huge fan of it though
>Windows 10
I hate spyware and I don't want to have to spend a bunch of time configuring it so it doesn't spy on me
>GNU/Linux (no copypastas here)
Um no. That isn't to say I haven't tried. But I want my programs (and games) to work, not to spend hours messing with settings in WINE or something.
So what should be done about this issue?

8.1 I guess.

After 2 years of trying to accept Windows 10 with all its faults, I see myself today having once again, trouble even with their own stuff. After a new installation of Windows, I cannot install applications from the store. I tried 20 things, I get 0x80246019 and that's it. Changed region, time and date settings, tried 20 commands. Still not working.

In contrast I haven't had issues like these with 8.1 before I switched. Or at least for a long time. The last time I had trouble with 8.1 was back in 2014. After that, stable as all fuck.

It's a shame that I bought a controller that only works wirelessly over Windows 10. I gimped myself there.

>>70233989
Native USB 3.0 support, can optimize SSDs, boots quickly, pretty light on resources, includes some cool new features (like putting a different wallpaper on each monitor), you can still install plenty of visual styles without it shitting the bed after one update, you can still do a lot of things you can only do on w7 but not 10 (like most of the panel control settings, like associating one program to all the files it supports with just one button, like choosing which updates to install manually)...

It's also more stable than 10, by far. I haven't had any problems on w8.1 similar to what I had to deal with on 10 even last year.

The problems with 8.1: Manufacturers and companies ignore support for it, so you have to use windows 7 drivers. And it might be slightly slower on gaymes, depending on which.
