    Still the same in the latest Windows 10 build. They're not going to fix it are they, looks like it's Windows 7 indefinitely. Stupid really but there you go.

    New DirectX 12, they had a good chance and occasion to do it.

    That's what I thought but obviously trying to amalgamate 2 different GUIs is more important than fixing issues like this.

    That shouldn't have stopped them, unless of course MS is trying to push Xbox games.

    If it is going to be fixed i don't expect it right away in the updates from the builds. I think when its released officially or near release. I wouldn't completely give up hope yet. Also don't forget to give them feedback about the issue on their website and the feedback app in the preview.I already did my part and trying to spread the world as much as i can. Here are some links to raise awareness:

    Twitter handle from the man in charge of the updates for W10. I tweet him the issue or link him to it usually when he talks about a new update:
    https://twitter.com/GabeAul

    Here you can vote for the issue to be fixed:

    https://windows.uservoice.com/forums...en-in-since-wi

    And of course do not forget the feedback app itself where the issue has been reported. You just need to give it a vote or add extra in the suggestion box if you want.

    Windows 10 build 10041 has been released. Anyone tested the DirectDraw games with it yet?

    I have signed up to Twitter especially to ask Gabe Aul but he never replied. Too busy replying to posts like "When is the next build going to be out" etc.

    Thanks Ralf. I wonder if they even know how to fix it.

    I don't know if any of you guys have seen this reply from a guy called Kevin C on Ralf's Feedback thread:

    https://windows.uservoice.com/forums...en-in-since-wi

    He's also replied on the Microsoft Answers thread:

    Some Games Run Very Slow On Windows 8 Like... - Microsoft Community

    I'm not sure how genuine it is that he would be a Microsoft Employee (Though I don't think you can have the MSFT tag and the little Microsoft banner under your username if not). He also hasn't replied recently but if you get a chance please reply to both of these just to give them something to think about if indeed it is being reported back now.
