    FSX, P3D and XP-11 to run on X-Box?

    Post by ddavid on Mon Mar 06, 2017 10:06 am

    Microsoft are developing a new function for their X-Box, called UWP (Universal Windows Platform), which will enable the execution Windows apps, like FSX. See this article from Arstechnica:

    https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2017/03/how-game-mode-will-make-games-run-better-on-windows/

    Interesting, too, that Microsoft is to update W10 to include a Game Mode, where gaming apps can control up to 6 cores, leaving the remaining cores for 'other' programs, thus improving framerates, etc.

    Remember - you read it first at SimHaven!

    i updated my laptop to win 10 yesterday as i hadnt updated it for a coons age and the paint was drying quicker than the updates were coming in so bit the bullet and have to say the win 10 on my laptop is considerably different to that in my second p.c
    However I think this games platform thingy will only affect games in dx11 and higher, i could be wrong though
