comment Which version(s) of Super Mario World are allowed when speedrunning on SpeedRunsLive?
Regardless of whether it's on topic, an answer from that web site itself would be a lot more authoritative than an answer here.

comment Spreading religion with caravans
The amount of pressure is based on the game speed, from very low for a marathon game to very high for a quick game. Some civs get bonuses to pressure; e.g. Arabia causes double the normal religious pressure when spreading religion through a trade route. Choosing Religious Texts will increase the amount of pressure exerted by cities of that religion by 25% (50% after Printing Press is researched). More details here: Religious Pressure

Can you link to the page that says this? If it's this page, it says it's a bug.

comment How do you recover socketed gems/runes from an item?
As for why these prefixes and suffixes would even exist if they cause this kind of problem, it seems to be due to the whole suffix/prefix system, where a suffix or prefix has to exist in order for it to appear on a set, unique, or rare item. The fact that these socket prefixes/suffixes exist allows sockets to appear on such items. Unfortunately, it also allows them to appear on magic items which then don't work with rune words.

This is my impression as well. I haven't noticed any gameplay differences.

comment Why are my buildings and zones completely disappearing in Cities Skylines?
If you hit your PrintScreen key quickly when you see that symbol, you should be able to get a screen shot of it that you could then include in your question.

comment Can I switch religions to that of a conquered opponent?
I've been able to wipe out an opposing religion, but to do it, I had to convert all the surrounding cities as well as the holy city, and use an inquisitor on the holy city. My experience is that while use of an inquisitor stops the holy city from coming back on its own, pressure from nearby cities can "revive" it, so you have to take care of those first.

This is not correct. You may be thinking of Austria.

comment Does the hand-to-hand-fighting skill bonus in FTL affect the entire crew?
Perhaps it's worded this way to make clear that it's about hand-to-hand fighting, not ship weapons.

Nice! I'll have to give that a try.

comment How to lure spiders as Webber without attacking the nest?
The pigs only come out of their houses during the day (and sometimes at the full moon). So you could always put some spider nests in a pig village at dusk (or night), and thereafter only collect the loot at dusk (or night).

comment Is there a real widescreen patch for Warcraft 3?
The widescreen resolutions show up, but the graphics don't appear to scale correctly. They stretch wide instead of extending the view.

comment Is there a glitch where the moose won't die?
Incidentally, I can tell you that my son and I managed to kill one the other day, but it was far from easy. We got lucky when I managed to lure it over a stack of lit gunpowder.

In lieu of fighting them, you can also scatter traps around their nest. They'll roam at evening and night and get caught. Then in the morning you can go collect from the traps.

comment What are the different game modes?
For Wilderness, what does "lose all their items" mean? Does it just refer to inventory, or to other items such as items in a chest, an ice box, or Chester? Does it mean those items are dropped on the ground, or that they vanish from existence?

My impression is that units are never disbanded unless your Science has gone all the way to zero.

comment Install rollercoaster tycoon 2 with steam
If you make a purchase, definitely go with GOG over Steam. You own't have to put in a CD or have a separate program running or have web access in order to play. You can just run the program and play.
