    I've been a Mac user for some time now and i loathe having to use Windows... sound like a typical Apple fan? Probably.

    But seriously windows 8 is the biggest bag of.... i've used in a while. I feel stressed, i'm angry, i'm drunk and i have a headache. It has taken me about 3 hours to install windows 8, in fact i had a stupid screen narrator stuck on for about 30 minutes.

    And now i've failed in install BF4 correctly. I've managed to join 1 multiplayer game successfully on my 2013 late iMac.

    Every time i join now i cannot click deploy, it's like there is no mouse input.

    When i first launched the game i couldn't press enter when it asked, nothing responded. The game has crashed several times, origin has crashed several times. What a pile of poo.

    Any ideas why my mouse or keyboard isn't working when i try and join a MP game?


    Perhaps the single worst experience i've had since i quit windows. Why do people buy this crap.

    It turned out to be the gpu drivers. Now I'm updated I'm getting over 100fps on medium settings

    Running nice now. Windows still terrible but manageable for gaming.

    I assume 8.1 is a paid upgrade?
