The first games I played were on the C64, after that I got a SNES and went from there to computer games.

The first real games for me were Albion and The Settlers 2, amazing games which still fascinate me today.

comment What happens to tree stumps in Don't Starve?
Is this maybe outdated, I'm fairly sure that they now grow back?

comment In Star Trek: Birth of the Federation, why don't I gain science research from espionage?
@user67288: Relative. MicroProse had a turbulent history, but it was bought by Atari which now holds all the rights until the copyright expires (you can thank Disney for the long wait). Now as I just read, Atari is bankrupt. I'm not a lawyer, but if Atari manages to close their doors without selling their stuff, the copyright is effectively gone as the owning entity is gone...now, we'll have to wait for that, too. Or we could also ask Atari nicely if they abandon it before that...until then, we obey the laws.

comment KSP Lag when above Kerbin
There is a slowdown in 0.23, people believe it has something to do with the water. Turning the physics-seconds-part in the settings to 0.10 might help.

comment Is there any way a griefer could overcome my 5-million-block quarantine?
When having the other players so far away, you should consider having them on a completely different server in the first place.

comment Are the steps for making Minecraft portable in 1.6.2 different from the steps used before?
"It can no longer be launched just by launching the jar file, and requires a huge pile of switches passed to it by the launcher to start..." Having looked at the way 1.6 launches, I have to disagree with you. You just have to kick on the main method in the jar and pass it everything it needs or should know. It's more complex, but not as complex as you make it sound. The only thing I'm not sure about are dependencies.

To clear things up, I quote the downvote tooltip: "this question does not show any research effort; it is unclear or not useful" technically, there's nothing wrong with trivial questions...except that they lack research effort in most cases.

comment Do monsters respawn in Half Life?
There's an area in Gonarch's Lair where you can go into a small cave with a small room with partly missing floor, there will always spawn headcrabs there. At least they did for me on hard.

comment I lost my fort. How do I find it again?
@AndrewLarned: I'm a little bit confused, that key key is clearly labeled in the embark screen (at the bottom "R: Reclaim")...didn't you see this or didn't you understand what "Reclaim" means?

comment Can I save my weighted companion cube in room 17?
@ripper234: I'm not sure if I would consider "pushing a cube at an awkward angle through a wall edge into a portal" can be considered not a bug. I don't know what's going in that swap-maneuver, though, but it also looks like a bug in a trigger of some sort.

comment Minecraft bukkit plugin for maintaining a separate resettable mining world?
The usual way would be to get a Bukkit plugin which does that. The "fun" way would be to get Multiverse, setup the mining world, and then delete the contents of the world directory via a cronjob (and maybe restarting the server). That way the server will be forced to regenerate the world.
