Fall Creators Update brings TruePlay and Game Monitor anti-cheating techniques

Microsoft's big update for Windows 10, the Fall Creators Update, is now rolling out to around the world.

TruePlay offers a new set of tools targeted at combating cheating within Windows 10-compatible games.

As explained by TruePlay's MSDN page, games that have the feature will run in a "protected process", which is specifically created to guard against one common way for cheaters to access game code. It's quite similar to the Valve Anti-Cheating system in that it's limited to games built for the Universal Windows Platform including the recent additions to the Forza franchise, for instance. If that alert is indeed found to be caused by in-game cheating, TruePlay notifies developers and shares the data collected from that gameplay session. To ensure and protect customer privacy while preventing false positives, these data are only shared with developers after processing has determined cheating is likely to have occurred.

Also, developers can exclude certain parts of the game like the single-player campaign from being monitored by this anti-cheat measure and players will have to option to toggle this feature on and off through Windows settings but, users will not be able to play multiplayer games that use this anti-cheat measure.

It was nearly a year ago when we first heard about the concept of "Cellular PCs" running Windows 10 on ARM processors.

What do you think about TruePlay and other anti-cheat protections?

The company has added a number of new features to improve Microsoft's digital assistant Cortana, Edge (a web browser developed by Microsoft and included in Windows 10, Windows 10 Mobile and Xbox One) and Photos (which is an image viewer, video clip editor, image organiser, photo editor and photo sharing app included with the Windows 8 and Windows 10 OS).
