Ive been building various monster grinders lately and using water flows to bring the items dropped to a collection point. I've noticed that the items pushed along by the water travel much slower than a player being pushed. Does anyone know why? Is it intentional?
Ships have a tech level, tech one being normal ships. tech 2 the specialist ships and tech 3 being even more expensive.
but looking on the wiki, certain ships have a tier level.
for example the hyperion is a tech 1 battleship but is called a tier 3. the same for the battlecruiser myrmodon which...

The term "opinion" is an umbrella that contains two sort of statements:
I think this is really what Robert Cartaino was touching on in Good Subjective, Bad Subjective. An opinion can be grounded in facts, explaining the how and the why, a thoughtful analysis that weigh ...
Can I flag this for the horribly mangled plural of 'analysis'?
Playing through Sword and Sworcery on the iPad - I've reached the point where I'm battling the first trigon.
It defeated me - so I was down to 1 star health. How can I regain some health.
I've gone through my stash of mushrooms and can't leave the current screen.

This is a simple question, but I can't find a decent answer.
I have recently started to play Eve Online as a Caldari capsuleer, and I am currently doing lvl 3 missions in a Drake.

I'm a bit of a Guild Wars noob, but I've always been interested in going for the Legendary Defender of Ascalon title. I've started up a character in Pre-Searing, and I've been working my way up to level 10 (using the tips posted on the official Wiki for guidance).
With Lieutenant Langmar's ques...
@failbadp When you right-click it, once the animation to pull it out completes (which is like 1 second long), the next enemy shot that hits you causes a fake corpse to drop and cloaks you for... 6.5 seconds I think.
If you're disguised as someone on your own team, said corpse is of the class you were disguised as.
(By default, - switches team color in the disguise kit)
However, you can only pull the Dead Ringer out when your cloak meter is full.
Picking up an ammo box recharges your cloak meter 25% or 40% depending on the ammo box size... this includes while you're cloaked. ;)
The downside is that the decloak sound for the Dead Ringer is much louder, plus you can't just cloak whenever. Also, decloaking early kicks your cloak meter down to a max of 40%.
Before Valve nerfed it to do the 40% max charge when decloaking, the Dead Ringer was the most overpowered item in the game. :D
Oh, someone "killed" me! uncloak, right-click
Oh right, I forgot to mention, the Dead Ringer also reduces damage you take by 90% for the first 6.5 seconds you're cloaked.
Which means headshots and such don't kill you.
Of course, the Dead Ringer is susceptible to all the normal Spy cloak problems: Can be set on fire, milked, jarated, dripping water after you leave the water, etc...
I think the kbd tag's vertical padding is too large to use them inline with other text. Once your text wraps onto multiple lines, kbd-tagged elements' vertical padding makes them visually overflow onto the lines before and after, making the entire paragraph harder to read.
I suggest changing the...
Oh right, one last advantage... for the first 6.5 seconds of the Dead Ringer cloak, touching you doesn't make you appear as the team-colored outline that the other two(/three) cloaking devices do. Enemies still can't move through you though. If you're lucky, they'll think they're just lagging.
If you're unlucky, they'll immediately start attacking the open space, or flame said area, or start monologueing at you like I just did.
@sjohnston: Hey, say something so I stop monologueing!

You can hardly ask a question on Stack Overflow these days without someone telling you this belongs on superuser, programmers(!), webapps, stack apps, etc, etc.

I have just started a new game and built four bus stations in a city (2000 pop.). Now one has over 300 passengers waiting and the others have nearly nothing.
Is there any way for me to determine where they want to go?
If you right click on a building, banelings will attack it do much more damage than usual. Does the splash from this attack damage any units who are stood nearby? And, if so, how much?
If I set the building attack to autocast, will the banelings attack buildings in preference to units, or still ...

The point of DST, from what I understand is, "man, the sun rises at 5am and sets at 7pm. No one's awake at 5am. That's pointless! Let's move the clocks back so that we have sun from 6am to 8pm! Now we have an extra hour of sunlight!"
I found a few guides that state that some careers are better suited for specific type of aspiration.
For example the Slacker is better suited for the Romance aspiration.
My question is: what is the specific effect that aspirations have over career? Do aspirations improve the chance of promotion...

I am aware that some games (like the early Final Fantasy titles, Disgaea) which are on PSP (more appropriately, PSN) are later versions with a small amount of extra content. Normally it is fairly easy to find this information out with a bit of searching.

This seems to happen particularly with Wonders - suddenly the game will inform me that building has stopped on a particular building without any further explanation. The building is then converted into gold.

I'd like to ask what bugs there are in a game that help players, but I can easily see this becoming a "list" question (albeit a limited one).
For example, I have just seen in Civilization 4 that your trading partners may refuse to trade an item with you (if you ask, "What will make this work?" a...
I have a decent PC
( Core i7 950
10gb DDR3 1600mhz
Zotac GTX 260^2 AMP2 )
Yet the game runs on ~45FPS on the lowest settings. If I look around, it can go down to 15fps.
I'm using the latest NVidia driver and DirectX.
Please let me know if there are hacks, or config options to improve it.
When I start Wolfteam (http://wolfteam.softnyx.net/) my screen is shifted to the left, that is, I cant see what is in the left of the screen since it starts showing the middle of the window. I have found some people on the internet with the same problem:
Last time I began to play often to plat/diamond/master players... Not too often, but still I saw a lot (especially on 4 players maps, in both ladder and custom games) that Protoss players do VERY early expansion. I would name it "1-pylon" expansion. Idea is following: build 1st pylon and once hav...
Usually, you need to decide your plan for the game based only on few small things:
type of the map;
the opponent race (Zerg, Protoss, Terram, Random).
You need to begin implementing your strategy on the 11-12 of supply. The only option to receive any information about player till that time is...
Pokemon Black/White has been applauded for the improved storyline (well, for a Pokemon game). Is there any differences in being a male protagonist versus being a female protagonist? Or is it completely cosmetic in nature?
