comment Message 088 code usage
Agreed: I've just finished that area (more or less - I got eaten on the way out) and I never had to enter that code. The most relevant bit would be when you're activating the large power column in the depot room; the option you use to activate the android that actually turns it on matches one of the messages from that PC. But I didn't have to enter the code to do the previous action.

I'm pretty much at that point. If you the mean code from the dark room just through the door where you find the plasma cutter, and the the utility action on the computer by the android just around the corner from that, then I can confirm you can reactivate the power without having read the code (or any of the messages) from that PC in the dark room.

You can always see your own bank details on the '$' tab - you don't need to note them down.

comment How to delete my XCom Saves?
In my case when I restarted it synced them back from the steam cloud (!). In the end I deleted them all in-game instead. Deleting them from disk when the game is started seems to work too.

comment How much ammo does an Xcom soldier have in a full magazine/clip?
It varies by weapon I think - rifles seem to have 4 or 5, and heavy weapons only 3. Upgraded: yes, there's a foundry project to give you lots more ammo a bit later in the game.

comment What determines if a soldier is gifted with psionic powers?
Does replacing a not-gifted soldier like this fix them as not-gifted? If it does (I haven't tried) then as a variation on this you could just add one soldier at a time and leave two slots empty, and if they're gifted after 10 days then go back and add a second soldier etc.

comment Is my Kinect facial recognition data saved on the Xbox live cloud?
OK, thanks - I'd read the identity question which doesn't have the 'returned to Microsoft' but missed that. That said, I'd expect that FAQ was written before the cloud feature.
