comment Can I control which nuke will be launched?
Yeah it does not matter. Another bonus I found during this is that you can cancel the nuke with ESC as long as you see the red dot.

comment Can I control which nuke will be launched?
Maybe you could make a suggestion for Blizzard to change that. Still this is only significant if the silos are in 2 different locations (e.g. main base and 4th base). But I doubt they will fix it, because there are so few scenarios that will profit from this. You need to be in a base race scenario and have multiple nukes in different places. Thats like 1 out of 1000 games, and that is even a generous estimation. :)

comment Building a gaming cabinet/machine
I found this site: arcadecab.com/Intro.htm, although I personally would go with an easy solution. Buy 1 Monitor, 2 Matcatz TE sticks, 2 chairs and and a cheap computer table. Screw the sticks into the table... done. Cost about 200 + 2 X 100 + 2 * 25 + 50 about 500 bucks if you go for second hand.

comment Where can I upload replays to ask question about my mistakes?
I am not sure how you can search for a replay, it might take some time. Usually it takes about 5 minutes for your replay to be displayed in "Public Replays", as the site has to extract the information (APM etc.). You could go back and look for the specific date.

comment Options for playing Xbox Live on a strict public internet connection
@EBongo: I agree that speed is often misused as throughput, but what I mean is the time one packet needs to go from your computer / xbox to its destination. As far as I am concerned speed is km/h or mph not kb/s the later one is throughput or bandwidth.

comment How long is StarCraft 2's typical input delay compared to other competitive games?
I forgot to mention that Starcraft 1 has almost the same amount of information floating through the network and iccup has way lower latency. The graphics might be crappy but the production / damage calculation needs similar inputs from all players.

comment How long is StarCraft 2's typical input delay compared to other competitive games?
This info might or might not be true for Starcraft 2. But this 12 fram or 200ms stuff is not correct. You make it sound as if this value depends on the players in the game, but it does not. Try this: Open Marine Micro in your World Editor and play, afterwards open a "single player" Battle.net game with Marine Micro. You will notice a huge difference and it has nothing to do with your P2P stuff as there is no other player. The point is Battle.net forces this delay. Prove me wrong.

comment Is it possible to play Street Fighter X Tekken with 2 players online on one PC?
I guess my best option to still play online with my friend is to bring my laptop. :(

comment What region should I choose for Starcraft 2?
I disagree. Have you ever played some micro maps online? Even if you are alone you have a huge delay.

comment ACR: How to get rid of the “ugh” sounds when jumping?
Chances are its just a zip file. But it might also have some kind of security hash attached to it. Try to open with WinZip, exchange the file and save it again. Make a backup.

comment What information is available on EPM to APM comparisons?
Ok, I have finished a script that can extract the APM and EPM from a given replay (not player specific). If you provide me a few thousand replays for every league I can extract you the raw data (in Excel).

comment Is there a reliable source for APM distribution in leagues?
Actually that was the reasoning behind this question. I wanted to know if there is some kind of minimum requirement to get to a specific league.

This might be true, but still good gamer have beyond 150 APM. This is why I want to look at some kind of distribution to see if there is some kind of correlation.
