Microsoft Windows 10 Fall Creators Update available now

Dubbed TruePlay, this functionality has been rolled out as part of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. A full rundown of the new feature is available on MSDN.

To recap, Windows 10 Fall Creators Update included games technologies such as Game Mode, Mixer broadcasting, new help options, and greater hardware monitoring detail in Task Manager. But there's one particular aspect of it that we didn't get into, because Microsoft, for some reason, hasn't made much noise about it: It's a new anti-cheat system called TruePlay.

Microsoft explains, "A game enrolled in TruePlay will run in a protected process, which mitigates a class of common attacks". "Additionally, a Windows service will monitor gaming sessions for behaviors and manipulations that are common in cheating scenarios".

Customers need to opt in to TruePlay, with Microsoft saying the software is not 'block on launch', while developers can decide what is and is not allowed in their games. Microsoft further assures that false positives won't trigger data to be shared with developers until further processing determines cheating has likely occurred.

After downloading the update users complained of facing issues with the trackpad, keyboard, USB which were rendered useless when waking the device from sleep mode.
