Great news, @Ashley, thanks!
I only occasionally visit - I'm learning C# for Unity, but c2 is still a respectable game engine imo....

You do know Microsoft got rid of Internet Explorer with the upcoming release of Windows 10 right?

Yes.... I think you missed my point - which Ashley answered - which was concern whether Microsoft will fully support web audio features for W10. My response was a cynical snipe at how MS almost did a really good job with IE11, apart from this one huge oversight. You do know that web audio features aren't supported in IE11? ;)

Just been playing around in Win10 10130.

Spartan:
C2 projects fail to load - blank screen.
Also Spartan will not go full screen -at least I cant find anywhere to tell it to.

IE:
Loads fine, runs fine.
Audio don't know if it has improved or not.
The taskbar always shows - even when going full screen.

Firefox:
Loads fine. 60 fps constant. Visible jerkiness constant.
If it can be done, someone on the web will show you how to do it!

Thanks for this info!

To MS and Spartan/Edge devs: Boooo!

I have not been brave enough to try out W10 because the upgrade will delete my C drive when the real version is released. Good info you have there - I wonder if this is a Spartan/Edge bug or a C2 export setting that's at fault. I have confidence that if it's C2 then Ashley will fix it asap; however, my confidence is somewhat less if the problem lies at MS' door. I'm almost tempted to load a version of W10 just to try it and get on with submitting bug reports.

Edit to add: with a release date of 29 July I am not so sure this will be fixed in time... :(

Yeah I have just put 8.1 back on (running a SSD and don't have enough room to run both side-by-side).
EDIT: started the install after posting the above browser info!

Just don't have enough time to keep farting around with lots of niggly issues that are there atm. (some have been around since the second build was released and still aren't fixed.)

Overall I quite like it, and will definitely buy a copy when released, but definitely won't sacrifice my 8.1 key on the free upgrade MS is offering.

With W10 going public end of July they sure have their work cut out for them! I suspect service pack1 will be hot on its heels!!
If it can be done, someone on the web will show you how to do it!

I've done a bunch of testing in Edge and everything worked great. I've not run in to any problems yet.

Would be great if it works on Xbox. :)

Does the new Browser (Edge) only run on Win10 or is there a Win8.1 Version?
