comment How do the aiming options work?
Unfortunately I'm not especially good at playing, but I tried as best I could to make sure I held down the left trigger - all the way - for the whole time, and it still did it. I was also playing as Franklin so not a character/event specific thing. As I say though, I'm not great with a controller so it's still possible I could have got that wrong.

That's a possibility, I'll experiment some more tonight and report back.

comment How do the aiming options work?
You're correct that when you release the trigger and re-press it will lock onto the next one, I usually use this. However, at times ([spoiler alert] mainly during Trevor's rampages) I seem to be able to hold the trigger, turn with the analogue stick and it will jump/lock to the next person. This is definitely faster than releasing and pressing again so if I can get this method working consistently I'd be much happier. I wondered if it was some kind of kill-streak type, eg it'll keep locking until you next miss.

comment Can I get my tuned car back after a failed mission?
I saw something along the lines of this in the manual. To me it says: if you drive your nice shiny car to a mission but have to use a different vehicle on the mission (or for some other reason must abandon your car), the best thing you can do is blow up your own car!?

comment View remaining stamina
@Nolonar Oh right, I haven't done one of those yet. I thought of this when I had to race a girl near the beach and I had no idea how what my stamina level was.

There's an air bar? Where's that? My understanding is it's: Green - Health, Blue - Armour, Yellow - Special.

comment Will trees continue to grow if I don't cut them down completely?
That's interesting to know! I may do all my farming in the Jungle then and hopefully it will be self sustaining with no effort on my part.

comment Why bother with Meteorite armour?
Ah sounds like it's not so rare then, I guess I could always open a new world for more meteorites as well. Think I'll create a phase blade and space gun and grab some armour later, I like the idea of rapid fire/unlimited ammo!

comment Why bother with Meteorite armour?
I've got it into my head Meteorite is very rare, is that not the case so much? I guess you get quite a lot when a meteorite does strike, but I wasn't sure how many meteorites I'll ever get (given there's a finite amount of Shadow Orbs to smash and a 2% random chance is incredibly low). It does seem a phase blade might be a better use, what about one of these hamaxe things as well?

comment Weapons upgraded automatically
I could well have had it when I crafted it yes, I didn't notice but then I wasn't looking for it. So is there some benefit to crafting lots of an item to look for the best enchantment?

comment Single Player Only achievements
Good morning APrough. Well last night I earned this achievement 'Complete All Story Lessons (Single Player Only)' whilst playing in co-op mode with my gf, so on that basis it certainly seems to back up your answer. I can't remember if she logged into her Xbox profile when we did this (I was still player one) but advice for others, I would say that: yes you can earn achievements for at least one account, but to be safe I would have player 2 join once the game has loaded (pressing start on the controller) as I think we did this most. PS. I never got an official response back.

comment Single Player Only achievements
That's very interesting. I had no idea that a saved game through one profile was not visible to other profiles on the xbox, although it does make sense when I think about it. It also does make it a bit more obvious who would get the achievement. I should hopefully be earning the lessons complete achievement soon so I will report back whether or not I receive it after playing entirely in co-op mode. Slight side, what happens if you create a save game when two controllers are active? Does it belong to whoever is controller number 1?

comment Which house / safe storage chest is closest to a fast travel destination?
@Joachim Sauer - Well that sucks, I land facing the main gate so the first thing I have to do is run forward one step and enter another loading screen! Maybe I better start a question asking about this :P

comment Which house / safe storage chest is closest to a fast travel destination?
I also use Breezehome but I usually travel to Dragonsreach and run down, saves the extra load screen of travelling to Whiterun and then running through the main gate. It also means I go past the shop and sell all the stuff I've picked up along the way.

comment Rage won't validate in Steam for offline play
I essentially deleted it yes, I renamed it installscript.vdf.OLD and saw it download a new one. I didn't want to completely delete in case it was important.
