As an owner of the PC version of HR : DC, I find it extremely frustrating to not receive the advertised content (Second-Screen/Screen Control), or even an update on its status.
Not hearing any news on this feature, combined with the fact that any mention of the dependent 'Intel Screen Control' technology has been removed from Intel's website, is very worrisome.

The HR : DC Answers from the Team thread at http://forums.eidosgames.com/showthread.php?t=140084 referenced
http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/architecture-and-technology/perceptual-screen-control.html , which now redirects to a 404, and searching Intel's site for their Screen Control no longer generates any results pertaining this technology.

I think it is safe to assume that PC owners will NOT being getting the advertised second-screen functionality.

404 error for me as well. I can't say what caused it but if you guys don't get it you need to start a suit.

Not only does the 'upgraded' product have missing (advertised!) features, but that is just the icing on top of reverted bugs that were previously patched on the original version, objectively worse textures and lighting, and a slew of other issues that may or may not be patched in the future.

I am not one for butt-hurt, but this kind of customer treatment and false representation makes me loathe to hand over my hard-earned cash to SE/EM in the future, and I am definitely spreading awareness of how PC users are treated by these companies. As interesting (and controversial) as the Thief reboot looks, I will not go near it with even my neighbor's ten foot pole.

Hi, I am also worried for the Second Screen app since I got the 404 error on January 4th. I posted about the very same 404 issue with the Intel page here (http://forums.eidosgames.com/showthread.php?t=140900), and a moderator stated the devs were still waiting for Intel to release it.

Some days later (January 15th), an Eidos official confirmed that they are still looking forward in another topic. (http://forums.eidosgames.com/showpost.php?p=1974162&postcount=152)

Believe me, I am also highly expecting the SScreen app (it's one of the main reasons I bought the DC) and a bit disappointed by the lack of PR on Intel's side about this whole Perceptual Control thing (it is not only going to cover such apps for games like DXHRDC, but also some other connectivity programs for both Tablets/Phone and PC for business and media as well).

But for now, it is coming.
