Q: Want to play oblivion, what mods do I need?

MarkI played oblivion when it first came out in 2004. By played I meant did around 3 hours before getting bored. It seemed to lack... impetus, and the leveling system is as everyone knows, messed up. What are the mods that would make Oblivion a worthwhile game to play in 2011?

Q: Best settings for Wii using component cable to an HD PAL TV?

Daniel BowenI've got a Wii connected via component cables to an HD PAL TV (supporting up to 1080p). Like most HD PAL TVs, it can accept any number of different signals. Available video settings on the Wii are 480i, 576i or 480p. Assuming 480i (interlace) is inferior to 480p (progressive), which of 576i and ...

Woo, 3k!
/me votes to close the site
Also, dungeons are hard.
 
I'm almost well-geared enough to do heroics, but I'm not sure if I care that much
 
the Heroics are a lot of fun.
You should, at the very least, get yourself to the point where you can run the new Heroic Deadmines/SFK
particularly Deadmines because the new finale event, (which is Heroic only, not there if you run the lowbie version) is absolutely amazing
 
320/329 gear level
I want to learn how to tank on my DK but I don't know where to start.
(if only because I'd be able to insta-queue)
 
@Brant pwnwear.com/forum Good place to start.
As for gear, the crafted stuff is really good, as is a lot of the rep gear.
DK tanks are amazing at the moment
 
3:21 AM
also I have no desire to raid
I looked at EJ but it assumes you've got the basics down
I'll check out the pwnwear forum though, thanks.
 
@Brant I'm specifically referring to 5 mans when I call DK's amazing.
they are the best 5 man tanks by far.
 
oh, cool
 
Warriors are king shit in the raid game atm because lolblock
 
do dk tanks use agi at all?
 
also because they have tons of kiting tools, and there are several encounters that amount to 'have the tank kite a bunch of adds that would otherwise kill them'
 
3:23 AM
I don't know if it still affects dodge or whatever
 
@Brant Not normally, but there are several 2H weapons with Agi that are fantastic starter tank weapons.
It provides dodge, but not armor.
 
just figuring out what reps I need to grind
guess earthen ring is out
it's all spellplate :(
 
@Brant Earthen Ring Revered has your tanking helm enchant.
 
oh, I'm at the vendor right now, I guess I missed that
I did, however, try to link the helm
 
and some pretty nice pants from Honored
 
3:26 AM
got those
 
noted
 
phenomenal tank cloak at exalted.
epic plate DPS belt with lots of Mastery that's more than servicable for tanking with appropriate reforging/gemming, also at exalted.
Revered has DPS boots, which again, have mastery and will do for tanking.
Honored has a tank neck and str. dps ring
Wildhammer/Dragonmaw have tank boots at exalted, tank helm at revered,
and Ramkahen have Bracers and a ring.
 
I kind of want to roll a priest
in fact, I already have
but I don't have any heirloom items
and I haven't done all the argent dailies I need to spend my crusader seals
 
Honestly, Heirlooms are kind of a bad idea 1-60 now anyway.
 
3:30 AM
so sick of doing those
 
you'll outlevel the awesome new zones before you finish them.
 
I suppose so.
 
then of course you hit 60 and you have no heirlooms for outland and you abandon the alt. :(
because fuck outland.
Seriously, fuck outland.
 
yeah, my friend and I are playing alts together, we're in outland
it sucks now.

mod ← mutation
yes? no?
 
@badp Why would mutation be linked to mods?
Isn't mutation something that might appear in, say, zombie games?
 
@YiJiang Mutation as in weekly L4D modifications.
 
@badp Would that be too specific to a single game?
 
Like: "this weekend twice as many tanks!"
@YiJiang Hence the synonym proposal.

feed overflow!
 
Suddenly, it's feeds all over the palace.
@Brant See, the fools suggest the "ticker" for high volume feeds. The higher the volume, the more frequently you must click "dismiss" to make that thing go away.
Removed the StackGaming feed. Rejoice.
 
@badp Maybe it needs to be an actual scrolling ticker... like you see on news shows. Works pretty well for GameDev though, our volume isn't that high :(
 
@Noctrine I could actually see a horizontally scrolling ticker working for SO :)
but right now Gaming's question feed is low enough that we can efford the full real question oneboxes
so we'll afford the luxury.
 
Gonna post a feature request in meta :)
Didn't really notice it as a problem till I started coming to chat on smaller screens.
 
Well, @StackGaming has the same content as the @Feeds question feed anyway
there's got to be a way to improve either inline feeds or the ticker feed, but I can't figure out how
I like knowing when new questions get posted and responding to them, but the oneboxes are so darn big that the actual chat gets pushed offscreen unless there's already a ton of activity.

Q: Review route display error on Chrome 9/Win

BrantI mentioned it in this post, but since it's apparently a separate issue and hasn't been fixed yet I'm opening a new question. div#sidebar is displaying below div#questions, and div#content has a vertical scrollbar. Screenshot

 
Playing around with the Data Explorer is fun. I have the 7th most downvotes.
 
I think I finally managed to delete my only closed question.
 
5:25 PM
@LessPopMoreFizz is the most critical with 137 downvotes, followed by @tzenes with 125.
 
I think that statistic is meaningless without knowing how many upvotes
 
@ArdaXi Oh, you mean downvotes you've given?
I thought you were referring to ones you'd received.
 
yeah, percentage of downvotes as total votes would be a better metric
 
Oh, right.
@Brant I have the ratio too.

also don't forget to do a decimal conversion so it doesn't round everything to the nearest integer
 
Yes, but Downvotes/(Upvotes+Downvotes) was rounded to 0
 
I'll be damned if I can remember the syntax though
 
LOL integer division
 
@Brant something like CAST, COERCE or somesuch. Ugh.
 
5:35 PM
UGH.
 
Need like a minimum of 100 votes total
Otherwise you get an absurd percentage out of 1 upvote and 3 downvotes.
 
where count (upvotes+downvotes) > 100
 
I'm the 3rd most critical!
 
@ArdaXi It shouldn't matter, 1/(1+3) < 1
100/(1+3) = 100/4 = 25.

CLOSE POLICE ACTIVATE
 
Would a discussion of the comparative differences be germane?
 
@tzenes I believe so
 
6:43 PM
while differences are still game-rec-esque it doesn't suffer from the same sort of problems as a game-rec
yeah, I think that might be a good suggestion for him
because such a discussion would get him what he wants
 
also it'd be completely objective
reopen_votes++;
 
@badp While there are several good objective comparison questions in there, the overarching question as asked is game-rec. I'd argue it needs some edits before a reopen personally.
 
@less see my comment
 
> First question -- Is either Guitar Hero or Rockband considered in the gaming community to be superior to the other?
thats bad.
@tzenes Indeed. I'm just pointing out to @badp why I'm not as eager as he to reopen it as written.
 
well we could probably edit this for him
fix it up
 
6:48 PM
@LessPop_MoreFizz What's bad with that. It's entirely possible for someone who "isn't in the know" to assume one series can be considered "more casual" than the other
 
@tzenes I don't like doing that if there's any hope that the asker will do it themselves.
@badp it's not about 'more casual' he's just asking which is better in a really roundabout way.
 
well, let's see if he changes it, and if he hasn't in a couple hours we'll fix it up for him
 
Then again people know I'm against mindlessly closing questions. "OH LOOK HE'S ASKING ABOUT MORE THAN ONE GAME"
 
@tzenes That was my thinking exactly. :)
@badp Yeah, that wasn't my reason for close voting at all.
I even explicitly pointed out in my comment that I thought it was salvagable but bad as written.
 
Well I always lean towards closing a question on the borderline, but I think we can salvage this
 
6:51 PM
Definitely salvageable with edits; I voted to re-open (in anticipation of such edits either by the poster or by someone else)
#1 is subjective, #2 is subjective but interesting enough to be answerable, #3 and #4 have definitive non-subjective answers
 
@tzenes Is the most recent answer to the gateway vs. warp gate question incorrect? I remember at least in beta tests that showed warp gates do turn out units X% faster than gateways.
 
@Brant If #1 is subjective then just answer "there's no consensus"; it's still information.
I mean, if I asked what's considered better, Portal or Big Rigs, that'd be objectively answerable.
 
good point. still, that would be getting off on a technicality.
also
 
@badp it would be, but the fact is that you're playing semantics with what amounts to a poorly worded either-or game rec.
 
I am a horrible person. http://twitpic.com/3pphig

7:04 PM
@LessPop_MoreFizz Game recs are bad because they are open.
 
@badp I just don't see the value in encouraging questions of "which of these two games sold better/got better reviews."
@Brant you like fonts.
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz "Got better reviews" is objectively answerable with a pretty boring answer (linking to metacritic).
As for "sold better" I doubt there's data to answer that.

Q: Good mods for Rome : Total War?

GWLlosaSo I've been getting back into Rome Total War lately, and have beaten the campaigns that the game comes with. What mods are available that add more depth/realism to the single player mode? I'm not really interested in multi-player balance issues, primarily just the single-player campaign mode.

 
9:27 PM
Mods?
What happens now?
 
@GnomeSlice The great [mod-rec] debate.
 
Oh dear.
 
@WillfulWizard I think we should definitely allow it, to the same degree we allow game-rec
 
which is: NOT AT ALL
 
@tzenes Yes, that was the joke. ;)
 
9:30 PM
I wanted to be crystal clear
I fought against game-rec for 6 months
 
Hmm, can mods cancel bounties? I was wondering that, because bounties block questions from being closed, at least by normal users.
 
I don't think so.
We had a bountied game-rec up a while ago.
 
Hey, is there a huge advantage to putting a small SSD as an OS/boot drive separate from your data drives?
From a gaming perspective, that is?
 
Depends. If you only put your OS on it, you'll only really speed up booting.
If you put game data on it, your game will load MUCH quicker.
 
@tzenes I've covered wars, you know.
 
9:34 PM
HAHAHA
@Grace you're the best
 
We must rebel and uprise against our game-rec hating leaders!
 
@Powerlord Yes, we can. Try not to make us do so, though. There has been one incident of a game-rec being bountied up... it did cause quite a fuss. Miraculously, it didn't get closed after the bounty, though.
I got to close it during the purge.
 
@GraceNote not for lack of trying
 
@Powerlord Revolt! I like revolts! Oh wait, I actually agree with the leaders.
 
I used to go through every day and use up all my close votes on game-rec

Besides which, I've never been a big fan of tool-assisted speedruns.
 
@Powerlord They're so badass.
He stops playing after the hammer.
Alternatively:
 
@badp That was rather amusing. I'm just surprised it got a monopoly on those so quickly... and built 4 houses on each.
 
@Powerlord It's in the submission page you can't read, but he wrote a program that calculated the exact right timing between each button press to obtain exactly the rolls he needed.
(yes, it runs reliably and veriably like this every single time)

I dunno if it's something new in 4.0.x or not, but I noticed that in WoW, you start at Neutral with the Timbermaw Furbolg instead of Unfriendly or whatever it was before.
 
heh, no more timbermaw hold death runs
 
Yup.
Also makes the... Ambassador (?) achievement easier.
I still need to grind Exalted on a character, but getting to Revered was actually quite easy.
 
I don't know if you can still do this, but at one point my guild discovered that everyone in a raid group got +1 reputation whenever somebody in felwood killed one of the evil timbermaw, no matter which end of the zone they were at
we filled up a whole raid and got everyone to exalted in a couple hours
 
@Brant Ha... do you think it's an unintended bug or intentional?
 
No idea. The range for reputation gains was big enough, or the zone was small enough, that people at both ends of the zone got credit for kills.
(Felwood is a long-but-narrow zone, and there were large groups of mobs at either end which you could kill to get your Timbermaw Hold reputation up)

If it applied when you're in different zones, you could do the Winterspring ones at the same time, too... it probably doesn't though.
 
I know we tried that, but I don't think it worked
people in WS wouldn't get timbermaw rep
 
I love how the last manager isn't supposed to leave until all employees are gone, yet I'm not management and I'm the only one here. I suppose that means I should go home.

Q: What are the similarities and differences between Sim City 3000 and CityVille?

rinogoI have read about and looked into CityVille. How does it compare to Sim City 3000? My guess is that it's more social (since SimCity was 0% social), but probably a bit watered-down as well, since they're trying to cater to more casual gamers. So I guess what I'm asking is, how deep is CityVille?...

Man, HFoC++; has already 88 defensive objects
that's 704 (perspective) defense.

Q: Is there a command that display a message in the screen ?

CybrixThe only way I find to display a message is in the chat window. I'm looking to display much bigger and hopefully screen centered text (visible to yourself only). Is there such command available ? Thank you
