comment FSX crashes on startup under Windows 8
Wipe and reinstall fixed it. Perhaps not running FSX in between service packs fixes it; or perhaps running FSX in between service packs fixes it. Either way, FSX can work in Windows 8. It's just touchy.

comment Where do base healing/damage amounts come from?
i also dug into the code; but couldn't find how they were referencing any script that contains a table of numbers. How did you find it?

Where the hell did you find that link to numbers from? More!

comment Where do base healing/damage amounts come from?
The numbers do reflect what a player with zero spell power and bonuses would see. "Defy logic" was a poor choice of words. i should have said "defy logical explanation" i.e. the curve is not linear, exponential, or power. When you begin to plot some healing spells over a range of 70 levels you see they exhibit dramatic non-linearities (typically around level 70 and level 80). And no wow api gives spell damage values.

comment Where can I view Tyrael's Sacrifice cinematic in-game?
This would be the answer if the cinematic appeared in the list (i.e. if this answer worked it would certainly be accepted).

comment How to defeat the Bank ambush in Battlefield 3
@Bora i never could get Battlefield 3 to "unbind" a key - even with holding escape. The only solution was to reset key bindings to default, restart the game, and redo all my preferences.

comment Is it safe to leave my stuff in a random chest?
@Konerak That question asks where to store items. This question asks if it's a good idea to store items in chests scattered throughout Skyrim.

comment Stealth with companions
Your companion will not be as good as you at sneaking, will attract all kinds of attention, and then start shooting people you're trying to sneak up to. "You stay here. You'll know i need you if i come sprinting back, screaming, with a mob in close pursuit."

comment How to defeat the Bank ambush in Battlefield 3
@JeffAtwood i do have a Sidewinder joystick and a PS2 controller attached. i also didn't realize that i wasn't allowed to press anything else. Few more attempts and i realized that the mouse input didn't start red - but was cyan so briefly that nobody could react in time. i reset my key bindings to default, unplugged the controlled, restarted the game, and i was able to pass it. Put that in the form of an answer and you got yourself an accepted.

comment How to play the WoW trailers?
This answer helps me, although won't help anyone joining since Cataclysm - or anyone looking to access the Cataclysm trailers. The localized cinematics (e.g. enUS, enGB) folder seems to be leftover from earlier versions. In my case i was really only interested in vanilla and Wrath trailers. And although my question still stands (i.e. how to play PMVX files), and it's something i'd still need: i have the answer i need for now. Accepted.
