comment How can I avoid being killed by Subway Stewards/Ticket Inspectors?
Sorry for the ultra-late reply, but just got around to testing this again. Seems to be closer to 1 second, not 8 seconds, and I still have only successfully reproduced it once.

comment Is there a Pokemon evolution line that fits the Sphinx's riddle?
"This site is about gaming, so obviously we don't take kindly to fun around here". I think I finally understand that quote. Now if only I could remember where it was said so I could upvote it. @DJPirtu :-)

comment DS Game Recommendations on a Budget
Sorry Siris, this type of question isn't a good fit for us, but you might be able to try on Reddit's r/gaminsuggestions

comment Can anyone upload a playthrough of Johnny Nero Action Hero?
Unfortunately we don't really do video requests here (at least not on the main site) - it's not really what we're about. When you get 20 reputation points feel free to ask in chat though!

comment What are the prerequisites to encounter the legendaries in ORAS?
@Kalamane then it must have been updated because I'm fairly certain at the time of writing I had tested using Pokemon from previous generations and couldn't get the event to trigger.

comment What does a BIOS file do in an emulator like 'MyBoy!'?
@spund3 - As I said, people often get confused and think emulation is off-topic, when it's not. There's also 4 close votes on the question from people who probably thought as much. Currently the question is at -3, +2 which means you are still making positive reputation points on it, so I wouldn't worry too much.

comment What does a BIOS file do in an emulator like 'MyBoy!'?
@spund3 - It can be. Emulation is on-topic. Some people get confused, because piracy is off-topic, and emulation can (but not always) be used for piracy.

comment Best way to beat this war base?
@Eric - Our mission statement is to build a library of Q&As that are useful to more than one person first. As per the meta post that Timelord64 linked above - Base layouts are fairly unique and the information we could muster to help you defeat it won't be useful in any other context. It probably seems a bit backward, but we're really about helping over the long term, rather than the short term. Kinda like the old saying: "Give someone a fish, feed them for a day, teach someone to fish, you'll feed them for a lifetime"

comment A program that will let me watch/record the lastest moments of my gameplay with the buttons I pressed
@Nolonar - Shadowplay can capture desktop, it's in the options somewhere.

comment What does a BIOS file do in an emulator like 'MyBoy!'?
@DrakaSAN - Questions about emulation programs are perfectly on-topic. It is legal to use an emulator to play games that you own, or freeware/ homebrew games that you have obtained legally. (Note that the former does not include copy-protected games that you downloaded, you must be able to use your original purchased copy or a backup made from your original purchased copy)

comment Completing the Lost Patrol [BoS side] quest…?
I've hit similar issues with Preston and turning in Settlement help quests after he begins talking about retaking the Castle: Until you agree to the plan and meet up with him, he will only ask if you want to retake the castle.

comment Is there a version of Ocarina of Time where the village tree doesn't change?
Probably a region/localisation issue. What region did you originally buy the game from? Which version is the copy you are playing now? (US, EU, JP etc etc)

comment Is there a proper way to use slow Pokemon in the party?
@TrentHawkins Unfortunately dems the breaks when running a mono-type or themed team. As I said the only real way to overcome these problems is to outlevel and have coverage moves, or otherwise have a plan to deal with certain threats on Gym leader/E4 teams (regular trainers won't matter too much). As an example, utilising Golem's Sturdy (assuming it has Sturdy) to survive OHKOs and hit back with a high-powered move is a viable strategy to take care of large threats on the opposing team. Stocking up on Revives and Full Restores is probably a must as well.

comment I downloaded Fallout 3 Through steam, and it is re downloading it!
More than likely it downloaded some corrupt files, and when it finished downloading it attempted to verify all files were correct. When it couldn't, it started redownloading only the corrupted files again.

comment A Minecraft PE mod is asking me if my device is 'rooted'. What does this mean?
That meta was also the catalyst for this one on torrents to remain open. If that is staying, so should this one.

comment A Minecraft PE mod is asking me if my device is 'rooted'. What does this mean?
@Timelord64 - rooting may also be needed in order to run certain emulators (less so these days but more common a few years ago). And this question gives another clear example of a legitimate use in the context of gaming (modding Minecraft PE), so I don't get why you're alleging that it should be unsupported here based on the fact that it might be used for "illegal things". The point of the meta establishes that if a term is used in the context of a game then it's on topic.

Which Call of Duty specifically are you playing? The tag you used is for the original game
