Q: Halo 5 not working tnaks

Peyton HughesWhy is my halo 5 game not working i just got it today and all it does is stay on the loading screen and i have already checked to see if the disk is scratched and reset my xbox console

 
:|
 
@Yuuki being charged at all is a big deal.
Prosecutors have a legal and ethical obligation not to pursue cases that they don't think they can win.
Like they can literally be disbarred for doing so.
 
12:46 AM
So I am figuring out with my dad what time we need to leave my house to get to Pearson in time on Saturday and he just asked me to "mapquest it" so he can figure out when to leave to get me and for some reason him asking me to "mapquest it" just makes me smile
 
Heh
 
@AshleyNunn i'm giggling at pearson because of
2 hours ago, by Yuuki
user image
 
@GodEmperorDune Although you say it peer-son, not pear-son
(also, pears are the worst fruit)
 
@AshleyNunn must be a canadian pronunciation
 
Wrong, pomegranates are the worst fruit.
 
12:51 AM
i would find a pic of a frozen pear but i am lazy
@Yuuki pomegranates are great
they make a mess and permanently stain!
 
Pomegranates are an exercise in frustration and they don't even taste that good.
 
@GodEmperorDune Probably, considering it's named after the 14th PM of Canada (at least I think he was 14th)
 
Pomegranates juice is also bleh.
 
@Yuuki you haven't had good ones then
 
@GodEmperorDune This!
 
12:52 AM
Man I wish I had saved my $100 for before when @fredley was trying to outdo me
 
pomegranates can vary from ultra sour to ultra sweet
 
So I could have dropped a 007 like "@fredley pls"
 
@Unionhawk That would have been pretty great
I feel bad that my $25 is all I can really do
 
@Unionhawk rip @spugsly pls
 
I am also saddened nobody in chat helped me
 
12:53 AM
> "you haven't had good ones then"
The story of every bad thing ever.
 
Not true, some things are just bad
 
And some good things actually have bad things that people are exposed to
 
@Unionhawk must. resist. making. dirty. joke.
 
Beer being a candidate that comes to mind
 
"alphanumeric letters of your name" - this phrase is in my "this is how you get your paystub password" email and I am just liek "they're letters, are they not alphanumeric by default? O.o
 
12:56 AM
8sh39?
 
Alphanumeric letters is redundant yes
 
Maybe throw in a 1 for the L.

A: CS:GO changes in ranking system

Mavric myersThis was said by a valve employee directly to me "We did initiate a slow shift of the Skill Group boundaries recently, due to an increase in players and a substantial upward drift over time in the skill groups distribution.

@AshleyNunn People also have spaces, apostrophe, hyphens, and non-ASCII letters in their names
 
@GodEmperorDune doing the googles right now for it, but yeah, that was a weird one.
 
is it this?

A: People who claim positions of authority should have to substantiate those claims

KtashA Plea for Sanity Can we take a step back and consider this for a moment. What really happened here is we had a troll make a post to try and bait users into believing their unsubstantiated answer. And they successfully got a few upvotes in the process, and people fed the troll. We got trolled, a...

 
Yes
It is that
Man that one league question caused lots of problems lol
I remember the "developer knowledge" meta as a result of that
 
Hi Mavric myers and welcome to Arqade! We appreciate this info, but our policy is not to accept claims like "a valve employee told me..." without proof. You don't need to prove that a valve employee talked with you, but do you have any data or anything else to corroborate what the employee told you? Please check out this meta post for more informationGodEmperorDune 25 secs ago

awesome
 
people on facebook are praying for a dog with a slice of ham on its face thinking it was injured in a house fire https://t.co/piW9ByWiXA
 
Got a poutine for dinner and it has fried onions and bacon on it and this makes me happy.

Q: Are there any physics differences between styles in Mario Maker

Hagelt18Mario Maker allows you to change the game style when making levels so that it will look like Super Mario Bros, Super Mario Bros 3, Super Mario World, or New Super Mario Bros. The original games from which these styles originate have noticeable differences in momentum/jump physics. Is there any ev...

 
I HATE YOU ARQADE! IM NEVER GOING ON THIS SITE AGAIN! YOU DONT ALLOW OPINIONS, MINECRAFT MOD SUPPORT WHICH MAKES THOSE PEOPLE IN HELL, AND YOU DUPLICATE STUFF AND NOW THIS FOR NOTHING! THIS IS WHY IM GOING TO BE A USER FOR GAMEFAQS! HOW CAN THIS BE OFF TOPIC? IVE BEEN A USER FOR THIS SITE FOR NOTHING! IM GOING OT GAMEFAQS! — Jim 45 mins ago
Methinks Jim doesn't like us.
 
@Frank That's just your opinion. Which isn't allowed here.
 
@Frank he amassed a nice chunk of rep for someone who doesn't like arqade
 
Goddammit alright fine I will work on a rewording for that question and cast a reopen
 
@Unionhawk nooooooooooooo
 
1:51 AM
BITCH THAT QUESTION CAN BE POSED AS SOMETHING OTHER THAN A MOD REC V EASILY
IT'S NOT HARD
 
It's also not worth doing.
 
@Unionhawk aside from your opening salutation, i agree with this precisely
@Frank and this too
 
No, it is worth doing
 
@Unionhawk urmom is worth doing
 
Ooh. You been told, @Uni.
Seriously, though. We go to so much effort to reword questions that aren't very helpful to anyone but the asker.
 
1:55 AM
I resent the idea that we should not help a user ask their question in an on topic manner because it isn't worth doing
What good are we if we aren't going to help people if we can
 
@Frank some google visitor might want to trade ingots for armor
 
He's just looking for a method of circumventing the normal progression method.
 
Because in this case we absolutely can
And either way, it can be done in vanilla
 
@Uni we're here to help so much more than a single user. Wasting time on such specific questions when there's others than can help more than just the asker is much more efficient.
 
So we can write it as an "is there a way to do x"
TOO LOCALIZED ISN'T A THING ANYMORE
 
1:57 AM
all this talk of vanilla makes me want ice cream
 
@Unionhawk Pretty much this.
 
I'm on mobile. That was redundant.
 
You closed it as a mod rec, I will make it not a mod rec
Deal with it
Or don't
 
@Frank If it is just something as simple as making an edit, I don't see why it isn't worth doing
 
At this point, you made me spill my beer, so I'm not a happy man
 
1:57 AM
Isn't that why we give people these privs in the first place?
 
Feel free to spend your time making that edit. I wouldn't, but its your time.
 
@GodEmperorDune I have chocolate ice cream, is that good enough?
 
@AshleyNunn nope, MODDED ICE CREAM TECH SUPPORT IS OFFTOPIC
 
I have mango and cream!
 
ONLY VANILLA IS PERMITTED
 
1:58 AM
@GodEmperorDune I didn't mod it, it CAME THAT WAY
 
@Frank Well, I will spend that time knowing I helped this site more than you by posting a comment about how he thinks you're unhelpful in chat.
 
@PrivatePansy that sounds good actually
 
@PrivatePansy I really want to like mangoes. But I just can't get there.
 
@Uni There are different versions of being helpful. You have your way, I have mine.
And together, we muddle through to make a better site.

Q: In Mario 64 speedruns, why are the keys necessary?

GraydaI've been a fan of TAS (Tool Assisted Speedrun) videos for a long time, and always go back to watch the various Mario 64 Speedruns because they're so good, but after watching a few videos, I wonder: Why are the keys obtained from Bowser even necessary, when the speedrunners have the ability to ...

 
2:08 AM
Having never really played much Skyward, every time I think "they must be getting close to the end" the game is like "lol jokes go find this thing" and it seems very long.
 
There. VTRO
Now if you don't mind, I need a refill.
 
@AshleyNunn I found it a respectable length. Not too long and make you want to just finish it, but also not too short where you wrap up everything and just want more.
 
It just feels like he's been playing it forever.
 
And I blame @Frank for me needing a refill
YOU DID THIS
 
(But since I can't remember when tehy started, it might just be me)
 
2:11 AM
@Uni That's your own fault.
 
Skyward Sword is a long game
The speedrun is 7ish hours iirc
This is the casual run done by a speedrunner
He did a major skip and MC yelled at him for it
@Frank nope, yours. I saw the question, knew it could be saved, went to edit it, put my drink on my desk, and knocked it over with my laptop.
Casualty of being helpful to the site
 
Okay, I love that he made Zeldathon Christmas crackers
 
They also buried the old donation wheel
 
Yeah, I caught the funeral
It cracked me up
 
They used it in deluxe for donations in excess of 50
At one point
 
2:15 AM
@Uni You knocking over your own drink is all your fault.
 
I am blaming you
Deal.

Q: Set players health to scoreboard objectives

Hurricane996I have a custom map in which I have a scoreboard objective. Is there any way to set a player's health to this scoreboard objective? The only thing I could find was putting a button on a player's head with the max health attribute but that has many disadvantages.

 
Because if there's one attitude with regards to the site that I simply cannot stand, it is the attitude that it is not worth helping a particular user.
 
And I'm not going to take the blame. We'll agree to disagree, and let it drop.
Deal.
 
Nope, I am blaming you and you are going to like it.
Okay Uni calm down
 
2:17 AM
Yeah, this is getting charged. Nope, not taking it, and we're dropping it.
 
Yes other Uni you're right
Good. I'm glad we're in agreement
Now help me clean this up other uni
UNI I SAID NO
 
I'm just going to ignore you for the rest of the evening. I'd prefer to keep my good mood, and you're not helping.
 
The feeling's mutual I assure you.
 
So, anybody watch the new Star Wars?
 
@Yuuki I've still not seen it, tbh
Gonna probably go next week
(I am bad at going to movies solo)
 
2:23 AM
I'll probably wait until the whole trilogy is out.
 
Tickets have been annoying to get, I've heard.
 
@Yuuki Yeah, I have no idea how tricky or not it will be to go but I figure I have the whole week off so I can be super flexible
 
It wasn't too bad when I went
We got tickets like, 2 hours before I guess but
Still, it worked out
 
@Yuuki i saw it thrice
 
I imagine it should be easier next week. Enough time has passed that even the people who've watched it multiple times (like @GodEmperorDune) have probably seen enough.

Q: Minecraft Forge 1.7.10- Forge doesn't show up in my profile options

Oh right
 
@Yuuki yeah 3 times on opening weekend was a bit much
 
@Yuuki Between that and school starting up again, I figure it'll be easier
 
I should make some time to watch that new Will Smith movie.
 
2:27 AM
@StackExchange cc @badpear
 
I saw it twice! :3
 
I saw it once by myself and once with my sister.
 
@GodEmperorDune shhh
 
The Will Smith movie actually looked fairly good in the trailers.
 
@Yuuki for me it was once with work colleagues, once with friends, once with family
 
2:30 AM
And apparently there's a Tina Fey/Amy Poehler movie?
 
Yes
 
Oh and The Good Dinosaur. That movie did not get much marketing.
 
No
 
Whoever is reading donations has a really pleasant voice.
@Yuuki I want to see that movie, I think.
 
The good dinosaur is animated, right?
 
2:33 AM
Yes
 
The girlfriend might like watching that.
 
Really? They're playing a rendition of Smells Like Teen Spirit for a Chinese acrobatic act lead-in?
 
I don't even question things anymore
Things no longer surprise me
 
@Yuuki wut
 
That's not true but shh
 
2:35 AM
aww man i forgot to cc @wipqozn on that sick burn
 
Lesson #1 of stage lighting: Don't shine the lights at your audience.
 
@Yuuki Lesson 2 - the fade out button DOES NOT fade in.
 
@GodEmperorDune cc @Wipqozn
 
@GodEmperorDune Your face is a sick burn
 
@Wipqozn nah it was good
 
2:36 AM
(aka I blinded people once because I thought I could set the lights to full and then press fade out while it was black and get a fade in. Nope. SUDDENLY, LIGHTS.)
 
I will not now retroactively be angry at that sick burn

Q: Have the Elites learned to speak English (without any automatic translators) by the time of Halo 5?

IxrecIn the first Halo game, the Elites can be heard speaking their native tongue for a mission or two, then we start hearing them speaking English, and they continue to speak English for all of the other Halo games. My impression was that Cortana figured out how to make Master Chief's suit translate ...

 
Kinda glad I gave up on Skyward Sword - this tadtones thing would have been super impossible for me.

Q: How to award player on every kill in Minecraft using command blocks?

Jeroen BollenI want to award the players in my game with 2 cooked porkchops every time they kill another player. What I have tried so far, is setup one command block which gives every player with the killsloot scoreboard objective 2 porkschops, and setup another one which removes one from the killsloot score...

 
I'm stuck on the last temple for a long time
 
The whole wii wave your hands about thing is freaking impossible if you suck at hand eye stuff as I do

Q: How can I get 4 Keycards?

user1306322I only got 3 yellow crates which contain keycards, and there is a bit of info on the game's wiki that says they may drop from certain enemies, but so far I have not been lucky enough. Which enemies should I farm for keycards? How does the drop chance change when the difficulty level is maxed out?

 
3:30 AM
SOMA is fucking scary in a few parts
wtf are people trying to say it's not scary for
also one of the best game stories I've seen ever
bar none
 
By the way, this is what I thought of during that "what is helping" discussion from earlier. So, if it felt like I was trying to throw you through a wall earlier @Frank... I only do it because I believe in this site.
And we will test to see if you hit "ignore" or "hide posts" in the morning

(@Yuuki do not spend money on that concussion movie what are you literally insane? It is getting some of the worst reviews I have ever seen for a presumptive 'prestige' picture and that's without even getting into all of he criticism of the movies horrific attempt at messaging and trying to communicate it's 'science' and it's 'message' thereof).

Also, my favourite part of the breaking was that it was HelpHopeLive tweet that got pushed that had the emoji in that broke it all
 
Yup
Down smash is a pretty OP sound too
 
I love the donation sounds
 
@AshleyNunn They are most of what makes Zeldathon cool for me
I mean, I started watching Zeldathon as an MC fan, but it's a cool marathon
 
4:00 AM
@Unionhawk I like round numbers, though, so I couldn't make mine be a cool sound because I needed the nice number
@Unionhawk It's all your fault I watch it, I think.
 
@AshleyNunn Probably
I think I introduced the room to the marathon
Or maybe @Ktash
Or both

I know ktash matched for Deluxe

Or might be
This name battle is now intense
Meme cooking in less than $400
 
Yeah, teh naming stuff has gotten pretty crazy
@Unionhawk I am excited for that :D
 
Who donated $1,000?
Was it by chance a man by the name of Robert Moran?
Or no?
 
@Unionhawk Don't think so
 
Twitch is awful and doesn't do reverse
 
4:23 AM
Legosjedi just did a 1337
 
Aaaaand, meme cooking

ZELDATHON IS LESS THAN $10,000 FROM THE OVERALL MARATHON GOAL
THIS FILENAME WAR HAS RAISED MORE THAN $15,000

We are going to hit 150 within the day
 
4:53 AM
Yay data!
Also, I am amused that the last while has just been me and you talking Zeldathon :)
 
Yeah, well, this marathon has been pretty awesome
We're going to blow $200,000 out of the water I think
 
That would be pretty stellar
 
We're on pace for like, $235,000 or so
 
Love it.

Q: What is uncovered by synchronizing at viewpoints?

YviDeWhen you synchronize at a viewpoint in Assassin's Creed Unity, what locations are added to the map, and what things are only uncovered when you get close enough to them? It's unclear to me, for example, if the Nomad and the locked chests are uncovered by this mechanism.
