Q: How to get to Vergen in Witcher 2?

danielI'm in the underground tunnels, but i don't have the key required to get to Vergen. Where do I get the keys? I've already got the sword with Saskia. Here is where I'm stuck: http://i.imgur.com/dLA9b.jpg Thanks!

 
1:00 AM
Hi chat. It's been a while. :P
I always pop in when nobody is around.
 
One sec, we'll have Lazers roll out the red carpet.
It is rather quiet in here at the moment. I suppose I should be doing something constructive, but apparently I'm just staring off into space, heh.
 
I am eating chinese food in an overpriced hotel room. Which is pretty similar to staring off into space, let me tell you
 
Sounds a bit more delicious, though also painful in the wallet area. I guess that balances out.
 
I'm not paying for the hotel room, so w/e.
 
Ah, that's not so bad then :)

Q: In Tiger Woods 12 which skills should be maxed if NOT using the PS3 move controller?

BobSO I gave up on the move controller for PS3 in TW12. Its fun, and it makes putting a lot less error prone (IMHO), but my drives and approaches are more accurate and more powerful without the move so I'm switching back..... question : Which skills are good to max out if you're not using the move...

 
@FallenAngelEyes All the Bit.Trip games are already on Wii, so that's just a convenience.
 
@Powerlord I know, but if they'll be cheaper per game in the package than buying separately, it's handy for me

@badp I think a storm last night destroyed my router, I couldn't get it to turn on this morning. I wasn't aware so many people were dependent on my site
 
@MichaelMrozek ow.
 
@MichaelMrozek Been there, done that, unplug all my networking equipment during Thunderstorms now (and obviously don't run anything from home)
I lost a switch and 3 cheaper network cards (back when network cards weren't onboard)
Actually, now that I think about it, I used that as an excuse to buy an actual home router thing.
It's pretty sad when they even make the icon for it a blatant rip off of the icon the original dev used.

Q: What do I do with all this money?

theChrisKentI am still pretty new to this awesome game, but I've got a ton of money from mining minerals and selling all sorts of stuff. I've bought the miner's helmet, and some dynamite and a few other things but it seems like there should be more expensive items. Maybe I'm missing something? I have 4 NPCs...

A: How do I toggle on and off sneak in Minecraft?

BrantMinecraft itself doesn't have any built-in way to toggle sneak on and off, but there are workarounds. On Windows, for example, you can probably use StickyKeys to make your shift key a toggle instead of a modifier.

I wouldn't feel bad about this if it weren't the accepted answer.
 
That new instant search thing drives me crazy; every time I search it shows "no results" for a second or two and then they suddenly appear
 
I routinely disable JavaScript on google.com because on their idiotic "rewrite link URL on click" crap... makes it so I can't copy urls that are blocked while at work.
 
@Brant You are indeed an evil fiend for making StickyKeys an accepted answer. Evil, evil, evil.

I’ve never touched upon the Assassin’s Creed series, in fact I know little about it other than a few friends have told me it’s “good”, although I’m not sure if they mean the series as a whole, or a single game, or what. To be honest, I’m not really sure why this one slipped entirely [...]

Q: Strong alternate team compositions and tactics

danixdI have started playing premade 5v5's (low elo) and can safely say that, without a good team composition, you will get beaten. No matter how good individuals on that team are, you are going to have a seriously hard time playing competitively. It is a lot more important in 5v5 than in solo queue. ...

 
@FallenAngelEyes Hm?
 
3:34 PM
Minecraft is going open-source, it seems.
 
@ArdaXi wat
 
> * Again, if you weren’t ware, the “modding api” is the entire source code for Minecraft, uncensored and unobfuscated. You need to agree to certain terms to get access, though, but anyone can apply.
 
@GraceNote I was wondering if you had/know about El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron
 
@FallenAngelEyes It sounds like the kind of thing that'd be deep in my memory banks if I knew about it, so I'd need a bit more than just the title.
 
It's... uh... sort of hard to describe Action game that combines 2D and 3D gameplay, has a really unique art style that I find very compelling.
 
3:42 PM
That's not really open source.
 
The only El Shaddai I've heard of was part of a song
 
@FallenAngelEyes Past works by company?
 
Development team is led by the same guy who worked on Devil May Cry and Okami
 
Sounds like something I might've glancingly looked at as well as heard stories of. Nothing that really stuck, though.
 
Ignition Entertainment, which is apparently a British company.
It's out in Japan already, didn't know if you'd heard anything about it at all. The demo for it is now on 360 and it's just... the art direction is gorgeous and I love the smooth flow of combat.
It's so weird, but it looks great.
 
3:48 PM
I'm pretty sure one of my friends was making humorous remarks on it, if it's the game I think it is. No, I haven't picked it up.
Last import I got was... Otomedius, really. That was a while ago. Been a busy set of months, haha ♪

4:24 PM
@GraceNote Tzenes commented on one of my questions today, so he's not completely vanished.
 
man, I'm completely terrible at LoL
My records are 0/21/6 0/12/0 1/7/4 3/11/7 1/11/0 0/12/2 0/13/0 3/27/3 0/13/5 0/9/0
(Kills/deaths/assists)
I'm always last to level up, my attacks barely ever deal more than 70, I get flanked whatever I do, I can't tell when I should push and when I should retreat ... ugh.
I buy items with gold mostly at random, I can't use runes to help myself because apparently the lesser ones are a waste of IP
I guess the problem is the guys I'm playing with are all level 30 and I play vs similarly ranked opponents.
 
@RavenDreamer Also provided an answer 10 hours ago. Guess he's present and just not in chat. He also just got Populus for his metallurgy class.
@badp Are you doing PVP or Coop vs. AI?
 
@GraceNote Those numbers are for both modes actually
 
"I buy items with gold mostly at random"
that sounds like a problem.
/me pulls up a chair
What heroes have you been playing, @badp?
 
I'd give you some tips but I think Raven's probably better at this than me.
 
4:32 PM
@RavenDreamer yeah, like, there's those recommended items with five lines of attribute changes
 
So it sounds like you're having trouble determining what items best suit your chosen champions
 
(Also Raven's in my timezone, so I really should grab his Summoner Name and pester him for all eternity)
 
>:)
(It's Orimoth)
 
@RavenDreamer I've tried, uh, Hemerdinger, Garen (once, was horrible), Nocturne (latest two games), Veigar (twice)
 
Okay, well, with the exception of Garen, you've been picking more advanced champions.
Let's back up a sec; have you played any champion that you enjoyed playing as, even if you lost?
 
4:35 PM
@RavenDreamer This week's rotation is not exactly newbie friendly. Some decent, but not nearly as many as two weeks ago.
 
Hemerdinger wasn't too bad tbh; I like placing turrets behind the inbound minions for the free effortless gold
It's the guy I got three lucky kills with turrets too in the 3/27/3 game
max turret + inner tower + upgrade + luck + luck + luck + luck
 
Okay. Where's the question I'm looking for. Bah!
 
Veigar wasn't too bad either
Nocturne is very meh. Nothing ranged at all.
 
Out of curiosity, was that 27 out of hyper-aggressive playstyle, or out of the other team being very mean (and ambushing you often)?
 
I'd bet a bit of both.
 
4:37 PM
@GraceNote At one point I stopped caring and started hyper aggressive to level up; apparently when you start getting killed a lot you give off very little money so I was like whatever.
 
So, @Badp - do you understand the mechanics of the game so far, you're just not effective?
 
@RavenDreamer What I really don't understand is how to handle enemy champions
 
There's this for the more general stuff: gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/17014/…
 
All I know is that at any time completely at random one guy in red will get behind me make big letters fly above my champion, then deal triple-digit damage to me and then everything goes gray
 
Okay, Badp, I'm going to have a suggestion for you. You need to pick one champion to focus on.
 
4:39 PM
That's always an amusing (read: not actually amusing) experience. I still get those even with the champions I'm good with.
 
The more you practice with a single champion, the better a feel you should get for their abilities.
From what you mentioned, it sounds like you're having better luck with mages -- have you played Annie before? She's considered an all-around mage and easy to play, and she's pretty cheap in terms of IP as well.
 
I do have 2k IP I'm sitting on
oh, that's one of those that is always used on Coop vs AI
 
Well I would suggest you buy someone so you can keep playing them once the free champs rotate.
 
Annie's actually good for learning, too, what with her passive and her Q and her ult all focusing on many different key aspects (timing, lasthitting, pets)
 
@GraceNote - Exactly!
 
4:42 PM
What's her passive? The info page doesn't seem to mention it
 
@badp Every 5th spell she casts stuns the target for 1.5 seconds.
 
After 5 spells, her next offensive spell is a 1.5 second stun
She's got two AoE spells too, so she can get off an Area of Effect stun off on clustered enemies.
 
Two of her spells are area-of-effect (so they stun everyone), and her shield also counts as ticking it (but will not consume it, so you can safely shield even when you're at 5 spells)
 
oh, Annie is actually champion #1
 
So, @badp and @GraceNote; how'd the results of the first community promotion end up looking?
 
4:51 PM
@RavenDreamer Pretty solid. Jeff and Joel are beyond pleased and are interested in doing a lot more. Hence the second iteration.
 
I looked up a few games to recommend for the meta topic. They were all coming out in a month or two. :/
 
the sooner the merrier
 
Keep them in mind for next week's thread, then.
For some value of next week where the week coincides closer with the launch date.

Y'know, now that I think about it, Portal has completely ruined the ability to run the "Cake or death?" sequence on modern gamers.
 
@GraceNote That's always fun.

Yeah, that's annoying.
 
I get to have loads of fun doing that when I find this Source game server extension this weekend.
At least it had better be completed sometime this weekend. >:/

Q: How do I make the Clothier appear?

Raven DreamerTerraria just updated to 1.04, and the changelog indicates a new NPC -- a Clothier. What are the requirements to get this NPC to move in?

 
@Powerlord Our first game in our Game Development 1 class was "Apollo 13: The Reckoning", wherein you play the restructured Apollo 13 on a mission to the moon, fighting off Space MIGs and Space Zeppelins until you discover that the man on the moon is Stalin himself.
4
Who is Stalin wearing a Diving Helmet. In space. With his hat on top of the helmet.
 
That is...truly amazing.
How are you not an indie sensation?
 
The prequel was a platformer in which you play as Space Stalin taking over the moon from the Capitalist Pigs, who have transformed it into a cheese factory. You must fight your way through space rats, violent space cows, and angry goats with rocket launchers.
@Mana Because we had an Easter Egg where if you pressed the C key 6 times at the title screen, it'd display the Communist Party image and play the Ducktales theme. Also because we drove our teacher nuts.
 
Was the BG music for your game The Moon?
 
@Mana No, it was custom-written by one of our teammates.
 
6:05 PM
Also if Sissy's Magical Ponycorn Adventure can become a hit I see no reason why yours can't.
I mean, Ponycorns. PONYCORNS.
 
@Mana Our final game (a party game) consisted of Space Stalin, Jabberjaw, and a ROFLWaffle chasing down the emailbox of our teacher and flooding it with junkmail to see who could stuff the most in there. I think that might figure into it.
 
Oh my god. Who came up with these ideas?
THEY'RE GENIUS.
 
@Mana All of them were joint efforts. I blame myself for inspiring the platformer, and for weaponizing our dummy code as the motivation for the finale.
Our third game wasn't too bad, it was just a racer with a steampunk car. Nevertheless, our teacher could do nothing but sigh after seeing the "SPACE STALIN FOR '08!" bumper sticker.
 
Suddenly, I really want to take a Game Development course.
 
@GraceNote Well, gotta be consistent in the setting!
 
6:13 PM
@badp Aye to that.
 
Sounds fun :D
 
@Mana If you're interested in Game Development, whether or not you plan to pursue a career in it, I recommend it if your academic institution has a program for it. It's a great way not just to practice some elements of it, but also you can see what all of your classmates create.
 
My Game Development course consisted entirely of reading through the Unity Tutorial and copying/pasting bits of code into a Unity project to run it
The smart ones just downloaded the source code and passed bits of it in every week... -_-
 
@GraceNote Alright! There's also a gamedev club I'm thinking of joining.
 
@Mana If they do Game Jams, you really should consider attending them.
 
6:18 PM

@Mana Great-nephews or something, because they're Donald's nephews, and Donald is Scrooge's nephew.
 
Scrooge McDuck is bar-none the best character ever.
ah, I see.
 
Because heaven forbid they be Donald's CHILDREN back in the 60s or whenever they were created/
 
@Mana I'm glad you're intelligent. ♪

I'm surprised they didn't come up with an excuse to have Daisy Duck's nieces (April, May, and June) on Ducktales.
 
@GraceNote It's only an impression I like to give off, unfortunately.
 
Don't MAKE me use my wand of lightning bolts on you. >:(
 
I can only hear the music. Please make it stop.
 
@Keaanu Jazz will be deployed in 3...2...1...
 
...okay. I've just replaced that IEnumerable I mentioned earlier, with the old reverse iterating for loop? It works now.

@GraceNote We call that Schrodinger's Bug.
 
@Mana I thought it was the Heisenbug.
 
...:(

@Mana I was not aware that bacon spontaneously combusted.
 
Perhaps you should Look Around You more.
 
Only if you believe.

Failing tests. :(
 
@ThomasMcDonald Thermite Roasted Bacon surely does.
 
user30
@GraceNote I'll have to look out for that one, thanks.
 
Every time I think I'm being nerdy @Grace out-nerds me. How does she do that?! HOW?! :(
 
@Mana It helps when your classmates decide that the first practical application of a thermite reaction (after learning of its existence) is "Cook bacon".
 
some classmates
 
6:46 PM
Plus it was our main chant after our wall got torn down.
 
Your...wall got torn down?
 
user30
@Mana It's not a common occurrence for you?
 
can't really say it is
 
@Mana Every year, seniors sleep over at the school for one night of crazy awesome. Then they pull a prank on the juniors. Usually something like "Put bibs/pacifiers/baby bottles on their chairs for morning assembly" or "Move the junior cubbies to a different room"
We just built a wall to block off their cubbies.
 
Practical solution.
 
6:49 PM
Four of the boys worked with the school's maintenance crew to plan that out for nights in advance until they finally erected it on the night of the sleepover.
Naturally, the thing you should do after such an accomplishment is just chant "Wall! Wall! Wall!" at various points in time during the next 96 hours.
Unfortunately, this tradition has probably been permanently squelched on account of the campus being torn to shreds by last week's tornado.
 
I like the way you recount these things.
oh.
 
@Mana Thank you ♪

The GitHub events timeline is really impractical, one half of the events in it are commits or issues on node.js, the other half is commits or issues on rails, and the rest of the events are on the 70 other repositories & 7 users I follow.
 
@Thomas You're talking about a site that until about a week ago didn't let users block people from adding them into their projects.
GitHub has a lot of impractical features; the events timeline is just one of many.

@Mana Which was only an issue on 1 occasion before last week.
 
user30
@Mana However, for all it's failings, it's bloody useful.
 
"2." "What?" "2. Occasions."
I agree though. A good GitHub is probably the most useful thing someone seeking a job can have.
 
user30
It's also pretty useful for deployments. git push origin master && cap deploy
 
user30
Admittedly, that would work across any Git host.
 
oh man @Fabian I just can't get used to your new avatar
 
6:59 PM
I didn't even realize that was Fabian until you mentioned it.
 
user30
I'm actually looking at switching to Bitbucket for my private repositories though, unlimited private repositories for free? Yes please.
 
@Mana It's just the symbol for "toxic"
 
Where'd your Blue Marble gooooo :(
It makes me feel threatened for some weird reason.
 
I was considering to go with the dead fish
 
oh god
 
7:01 PM
Hahah
 
@Mana Everyone knows that reality marbles have no chance of sustained existence, since all of creation itself rebels against their very presence.
 
@Mana The blue marble was EARTH!
 
@Thomas is it not possible to set up a git server of your own?
 
user30
@Mvy Yeah, mostly just convenience though.
 
@Fabian Is that the symbol for "dangerous to environment"?
 
7:01 PM
@Keaanu Yes
 
user30
Okay, I have no intention of going through those 37 emails tonight. closes Sparrow
 
@Fabian Effective.
 
@Fabian and so was The Blue Marble
 
@Mana Okay, didn't know it was called that.
But my current avatar might make moderating somewhat more effective, let the Skeptics fear me ;-) muhahahaha
 
user30
@badp They credited the wrong guy for one of the saxxy video runners-up, and so guess what they gave him. A saxxy Yeah, they removed it later

7:04 PM
Which surely negates the point of them in the first place
 
@Fabian That was the logic that made me almost consider Sikieiki or stick with just Clarino for my gravatar.
 
@Grace Flandre also might have worked.
 
@Mana I don't really think Flandre is a good symbol for someone with a supervision job.
 
I don't see anything wrong here.
 
loooooooool
Mod said : DON'T
 
7:07 PM
@Mana I'm the good cop.
Theoretically.
 
Oh, I see. @badp, I found your new avatar, then.
 
badp's a good cop, too.
Some people have two devils on their shoulders instead of an angel and a devil. So it's not unheard of to have 3 good cops.
That said, I'm still the 3rd most powerful mole.
 
Well, Gaming is a pretty quiet place, you didn't need a bad cop yet ;-)
 
kicks Fabian into a wall YOU WANNA REPEAT THAT, PUNK?!
 
Fabian's got a ♦. We could consider Fabian our bad cop if necessary. ♪
 
7:16 PM
anyways bbl, drum practice ♪
 
Later~
 
Did you all bounded the note character on your keyboards lol :D
 
@Mvy Hold alt, and type 13 on your keypad
@Mvy 14 for some double-note action
 
Well Ok forgot about the alt-thingy
 
@Mvy It's a handy little trick. I use it in "touché" (alt+130)
And, of course,

7:24 PM
Well I'm french... so do need it. Already in my keymap :P
 
@Mana That'd look like I impersonated you.
The D: feeling is quite similar.
