Hello!

I'm an aspiring .NET developer trying to get by in a cruel world of runtime errors.

My order of conundrum solving is first to search google, second to check MSDN, and thirdly to search stackoverflow.

If stackoverflow doesn't have the answer already, and I'm really stumped (or pressed for time on a tight deadline), I'll ask the question and hope that other people find it useful too.

comment Is a bile jar guaranteed to spawn before map 4's crescendo event in Dark Carnival?
Some item spawns are guaranteed at fixed locations, for example the medkits in the 2nd level of the parish. I can't think of any -guaranteed- spawns in that particular level though.

comment Is there any reliable way to get the Dead Center - Mall stairwell second floor shortcut
It'll modify it based on if you're doing 'well', as the downstairs route is the more difficult one (versus confogl mods open the lower route). But I'm not sure what criteria that is. I've never seen the ground floor route open on versus without mods, only campaign, and it's rare.

comment What were the two scavenge maps removed from left4dead 2?
Afraid not, I've googled a lot but can't find anything. I just remember when I started playing there were a couple of extra maps that were since removed.

comment Dealing with stealth
There are a few various misc cards that don't fit into those categories too, such as Betrayal.

comment Conceding in Hearthstone
I think conceding just before you lose is really lame. You should only concede if you're obviously going to lose in several turns, but not if you're going to lose in the next 10 seconds. Let people get the satisfaction of a victory well deserved.

comment Can I change the movement keys in NetHack?
You might think so but try playing ADOM after playing nethack or vica-versa!

comment Am I supposed to have no idea what's going on in the first few hours of play?
Sure, I get that. But that's just normal for the time period. Can't go murdering people because I disagree with them then continue murdering the police who come to stop me with a clear concience though. It's weird how I've only ever experienced this in this game. I guess because I don't feel like a hero trying to save the day? Who knows.

Basically the game starts with me on a boat, I have no idea who I am or what I'm doing, then I end up in this city in the sky, they are gonna stone a couple of people to death so I then decide to just start killing hundreds of people because I don't like their customs, none of whom have done bad to me, they're just doing their job of protecting the people in the city. Then I'm kidnapping one of their citizens for reasons unknown whilst still mowing down loads of them. I feel like I am the bad guy, but I just don't know what's going on.

comment Run old games on screen that does not support lower resolutions
I thought the nvidia control panel had an option to adjust how it handles lower resolutions? IIRC it had options to stretch games that were in a different resolution, or add black borders around the edge so it runs centered.

It's hard to be immersed when I feel I'm just gunning down innocent people for no reason. I'll stick with it though, the visuals and the looting are fun.

Thanks. That helps a bit.

Phew, that's ok then. I am finding it hard to really care about the game though, like running through an exploding building to save someone, I have no idea why I'm there, who I'm saving, where I am, why they're a prisoner, why I'm saving them etc. so I don't feel any kind of tension or sense of urgency :(
