    100% agreed.

    People still somehow believe their Windows install is using 'their OS'...Fact is, it isn't and Microsoft can do whatever they want. Even if they loose customers, they effectively give Windows 10 away anyway, even on OEM installs, so what does MS care?

    they want your subs now, they don't care about the reduced revenue from boxed copies in the slightest.

    It will be interesting to see if it downloads everything again, or just checksums whatever is there, and grabs the required binaries only.

    I am hoping it just detects all is well once I point game install to the location it was previously installed and it works like steam and origin do but am not hopeful.

    Hadn't seen that I'll give that a go ta. Main issue with trying to copy files from another pc that had it installed is it just won't let you. It's so locked down no matter what you do with permissions/ownership.

    Of course, that's the whole reason why MS wants to lure people into their Store :)

    Yeah I recall trying it once without much luck but at 4mbit itl take ages and ill have to keep supplying it with new urls itl be a PITA. I will try just install it to the location it was previously and see how that goes but I think it will just overwrite it.

    Otherwise I'll wait till fttn comes in a cpl months to get my forza downloads. Thank God halo games are also going to steam.

    Didn’t you have a mate with a quick connection? Get him to download, copy the file, then follow the rest of the process.
