Games desensitize you to violence? Codswallop, now hand me that grenade launcher.

comment Steam Error: Can't connect to Steam Network on Windows 7
I had exactly the same problem a few months ago and found it to be an issue with my wifi driver; reinstalling Windows did the trick, but only until I allowed it to update that driver. Rolling back the driver update worked for me, as did eventually switching to a wired connection instead.

comment Are “Games on Demand” loading times faster than that of games installed from disc?
@Joetjah — Probably because it doesn't answer the question. The math here compares DVD to HDD, but the question is referring to two different types of HDD game.

comment What is the perfect ratio of Stills to Fermenters?
@OrigamiRobot — My understanding is that boilers can only explode when dry. If you have TE installed, a single Aqueous Accumulator can keep even a max-sized boiled topped off, if you give it a couple of source blocks to work with.

comment What does the green gun do in AntiChamber?
@Shaamaan — That's exactly my point — they're features of the gun, not the cubes. Cube color doesn't influence behavior, only gun color.

comment What does the green gun do in AntiChamber?
@Shaamaan — I just tested myself, and found that blue cubes are capable of both short-end deletion (there's a line of blue blocks on the other side of a wall behind you at Taking Baby Steps) and filling (bring some extra blocks with you to Managing Resources). Both are a function of the gun color, not the block color.

comment Is it possible to remove stolen status from stolen items?
This doesn't appear to work, at least as of the 1.7 patch. Your follower retrieves the items, and they don't look stolen when you trade with them, but they're still marked as stolen once you open your inventory again and they can't be sold to honest merchants.

comment How can I permanently enable cheating?
I know where the files are, the problem is that editing them as described doesn't enable cheats.

comment How can I resurrect my mercenary?
@Krazer — (I'm her roommate.) She was using one of the mercs from Greiz in Act II, the portrait appeared in the corner, and she's patched up to the latest available from Blizzard (1.12?).

Then you should post your solution as an answer so that others can find it! :-)

comment Almost every server on every Source game is not responding
@Holger — I've not had problems accessing servers through my router firewall; Steam seems to be quite tolerant to NAT. The problem with Windows Firewall is that it can block entire apps, irrespective of the ports being used.

comment How can I prevent crashes shortly after starting the game?
With 55 gigs free, it seems unlikely that lack of space is a problem.

comment What is the most efficient way to clear an area in Minecraft?
Best of both worlds? /set 46 instead of /set 0. ;-)

comment All the contents of my shelter exploded, killing me and leaving my shelter virtually unscathed. How could this happen?
@gnovice — Not sure what to tell you then, but it was indisputably a creeper. They and TNT are the only sources of explosions outside the Nether, so unless you had TNT in your base (not in a chest, just plunked down on the ground), there aren't any other options.

comment All the contents of my shelter exploded, killing me and leaving my shelter virtually unscathed. How could this happen?
@gnovice — Spawning is random, but it plays by rules, one of which is lighting. I expect that there are spots within your cave system which are dark enough to allow mob spawning. This can be difficult to gauge without mods or counting blocks, so be generous with your torches!

comment Under what conditions might gold be flagged as stolen
@Izsi — If that's the case, I have not found it to be reliable. I have seen, when selling a single large stack containing stolen items to a fence, the "STOLEN" tag toggle on and off multiple times.

comment Under what conditions might gold be flagged as stolen
@Iszi — Did you drop, store, or otherwise divest yourself of the gold you held before each test? When you view a stack of items in your inventory, only the stolen status of one particular item is shown, and I have not seen a pattern to which (other than that it isn't necessarily the most recently acquired).

comment Replacing the mouse click in Morrowind
Can you be more specific about your needs? I'm not sure what you mean by "replace left/right click button for various action". :-)

comment What actions freeze time?
@Andrew Moylan — Enchanting uses the standard crafting interface, so does not stop time.

comment My head keeps falling off. What can I do?
Interesting! This does indeed seem to have removed my neck stump — I can now see the inside of my armor by looking into the neck hole — but it didn't reattach my head.
