comment How can I boost performance in Rome 2?
I don't have the game, but see screecaps of the advanced options: the first items to go to are Shadows = huge hit; SSAO = huge hit. My personal preference is to back down on resolution before reducing other settings. Anti-aliasing = big hit

comment Is a bile jar guaranteed to spawn before map 4's crescendo event in Dark Carnival?
I think that is does NOT spawn in any level except the first and last. I don't know if it is guaranteed to spawn in level one, but I do know it commonly does. Most people do not look hard enough in the motel rooms, but I often see it at the HUMV on the highway approach.

comment How to optimise your odds to survive in expert difficulty?
you will lose your magnum however. Magnum is the best gun on expert (especially realism expert) as it is a one shot kill for common infected.

comment How can I force Player 2 to leave the session?
I think chargingpun has it: whatever the keypress is to pause the game for the player who is leaving (prob enter & numpad enter), press it, and then select the option to leave (drop out??).

comment How do I stretch a lower screen resolution in Dead Space 3?
I have had this problem on one non-DS3 game (metro 2033): I set the resolution to one that is the proper aspect ratio but lower than native size and I get bars (not all choices exhibited this). Aside from selecting another lower resolution I could not find a solution for it: as far as I could tell, the game thought it is a mismatch and is trying to fix it. You can try and set the "gpu scaling" option(s) in your device driver setup (if exposed). For ATI cards, you need to change the desktop resolution from native to have the options not greyed out. Set it to keep aspect ratio.

comment How to fix the light beam in the Oculory
Graphics drivers often detect the software running and change their own behavior to work around bugs or known shader problems. The problem with this is sometimes the workaround isn't needed anymore or the software in question isn't on the list. If you forced anything on (or off) in the driver interface, toggle it. I have some games on an ATI card that will only run and display properly with "catalyst AI" off and then other games (like Rage) require it to be on...

comment XBox 360 has no sound with HDMI cable
I was in the opposite situation: I wanted HDMI for video, but wanted to use the audio cable from the a/v connector. You can use both, but in some models, you need to remove the plastic outer case from the connector to allow clearance for the hdmi cable,

comment Are there any ways to decrease the impressively long save times for Sims 3 worlds?
I don't plays Sims, but the Q intrigued me. I did a quick google search and I see people reporting saves as large as 1.5 GB (!) And a possible hint that Sims' "Memories" (specifically the photos) may be the root of the issue.

comment Are there any shops in hostile zones?
Note that there may be only 1 store in the Last Stand, but there are repair nodes where you get repaired (not always fully) and resupplied for free.
