I code for fun, mostly self taught, both high and low level. Also self taught in various aspects of information security. Love the puzzles.

comment Broken quest (Leifnarr's death). Is it possible to fix it?
It was on oblivion, I said I didn't know about the rest, and to try it, and I said it was supposed to in related engine games on the PC, but it didn't always work that functionality either.

Well, the console may actually be there via a USB keyboard, try it and see (I know oblivion on the xbox360 had the console, but one needed to plug in a USB keyboard to access it). Just be warned, if a command is run they may decide you are trying to cheat at achievements/trophies and not give you any more on that characer (at least fallout 3 and fallout new vegas were supposed to do this on PC's)

comment Can you steal back the skeleton key?
Mine two, I love shadow cloak (even if it's a little glitchy to activate sometimes), it's not like I don't have plenty of lockpicks.

comment What's the effect of dual-casting soul trap?
I'd imagine it increases time that you can kill them in, but can't say for sure.

comment Are Wards actually useful?
traps is the only thing I use them for, and that's rare as I have good lockpick and sneak skills, it's only specific types of traps I can't avoid where I'll fire up a ward.

comment Are Wards actually useful?
@GmNoob Labyrinthian by any chance? (you'll only get access during the Winterhold College quest-line but it's a massive dungeon that has all sorts of magic puzzles in it, usually one has just picked up the right spell trap. Also, there are some enemies that manage to use wards pretty well.

comment Determining if a game is CPU- or GPU-limited
Depends on the graphics cards, but for the reasons mentioned in other questions, this is not a good way to identify where a game is bottlenecking.
