comment What is the different between a character set and a graphic set?
... and games like Dwarf Fortress do the same to give them a retro feel.

comment What is the different between a character set and a graphic set?
'Character set' as a term comes from the olden days when computers had various 'text mode' displays. For example the original PC had a 40 column by 25 line mode, and each of the screen cells in that could contain one 8x8 character. The 'font' that determined what those characters looked like was often based in hardware, and usually had all the alphanumeric characters plus signs, punctuation, a few with accents and so on. On computers where this was the only type of display, and you couldn't produce 'graphics' at all, or you could but not quickly, many games were forced to use these instead ...

comment Where did the 'pwnage' or 'pwn' or (verb) 'to pwn' come from ?
It's like the "blah blah blah !!!!1!!!!!!" thing, the implication there being a person who is both overexcited and too stupid to hold down the shift key properly.

comment What are the unmentionable enemies in Dwarf Fortress?
@Garan Of course it makes sense from a programming perspective, it's called metadata.

comment How can I get jetpacks in GTA 5
It's fake. There is no jetpack in GTA V although I suspect one will show up in DLC.

comment How does skipping taxi rides work?
In other words, to help other viewers of this question, you need to be looking at the taxi in an external vehicle camera view before the skip option becomes available. Hit the 'back' button on the 360 controller.

Sounds plausible, however I'm sure I've skipped from the city to the north coast.

comment How to get my previously owned 3DS games WITHOUT the original system
Yeah I think big operations like GameStop would be very careful in this respect - too easy to get sued.

comment Sky Reflection Linked to Camera Velocity (Glitch)
I wouldn't consider it a glitch. If you have to change the default behaviour via an INI file, it was off by default for a reason. Probably more of a side effect of how the engine works.

You could maybe get it running via DosBOX if you were willing to torture yourself getting Windows 95 running in DosBOX first. And even then UT would not run properly in it.

comment How can I play an XBox 360 game if the disk is unreadable?
A search would seem to indicate that if you registered it on Origin then you can download it from there and not have to use the disc at all. Don't know how true that is.
