@rowr: Thanks dude, not quite what I need.

Probably to do with the way I worded the question. What I need is to be able to choose how Windows boots at the boot menu (AKA: that thing that appears asking you to if you want to boot into safe mode when shit goes bad).

I need:

  1. The default option selected after 10 or so seconds, this option auto boots steam as a shell.
  2. Boots windows but allows me to select which account I log in with.

I know how to copy a boot config using bcdedit, but that is about it.

I'm at 207 right now. Now, as for how many I've played, that's a whole another story. Someone needs to take my bank card away from me when the deals come around.

This, totally this!

I have set my PC (Win 8.1) up to load steam into big picture mode as a shell, but as I use this PC for stuff other than gaming I was kind of hoping there is a way to disable the auto login during boot.

Ideally I would have two boot options, one that auto logs into the steam account and one that simply loads to the windows login screen. I have been led to believe the days of autoexec.bat and config.sys files are long gone, otherwise i'd do it that way.

While I wouldn't call it what happens "sexist", as it fits with Lamar's character, it certainly doesn't do a lot to help with representation of women in videogames. That said, I know this is not a problem they are trying to address here but I bloody well wish they would address it. I am still kind of cheesed off that they didn't bother to include a female player character in the single player story. Personally I think that's just lazy writing.

Rest in peace Ryan. You will be missed.

There is also a single player "quest based" version for sale on the Nordic Games website. This version lets you take control of one character at a time and perform pre-set tasks. It also has a scoring system which seems pretty odd considering the game is pretty much entirely chance based.
