I hope they fix it before April, since i was planing on playing that (even though its multiplayer only) and stick of truth while taking a long 12 hour trip to tokyo :(

Intel has released special drivers for Titanfall support, so I bet that fixes it.

EDIT: Sorry, didn't see the above post with link, had this page open all day when I posted. Apologies for the repost ;)

But don't the intel drivers mess the settings fo the surface pro, like sleep and power management?

They do eliminate any presets Microsoft has setup in the drivers, but I've yet to actually notice a difference in battery life or have any issues related to the GPU drivers. I've been running Intel drivers on and off since October without issue.

The biggest benefit before this latest round of March drivers other than the usual bug fixes/optimizations was the Intel drivers allowed access to the full Intel Control Panel, but I noticed yesterday that with Microsoft's March drivers, while the icon isn't there, a right click on the desktop allows access. Not positive it's a full featured Intel Control Panel but it's a start.

My advice would be run the Microsoft drivers until you run into an issue (like the Titanfall problem) and then updated to the Intel drivers and see how they compare. Only thing to be wary of is once you install the Intel drivers, Windows Update will try and automatically replace them with MS drivers unless you tell it to "hide" the update.

Has anyone tried the Amazing Spiderman? I don't really want to play it on my surface, but I just want to figure out how to get the resolution from constantly defaulting to 640x480 every time. I can't figure how to make 1280x720 stick.

I've tried installing microsoft firmware updates but every time it messes with my intel video drivers, meaning like games such as civ v and xcom would crash often. but using Intel's own drivers I don't experience these problems. The latest microsoft March firmware update seems to work but I cannot open the intel control panel, does this happen to other people as well?

Great Titanfall video, thanks! Glad to see it plays so well. I'll have to pick up a copy when it goes on sale.
