About me

I'm a teen software developer who relishes hacking PHP on the Web, C# on his PC and Objective-C on his Mac. I adore math, Jesus, Apple and π, but not apple pie!

I'm not a hardcore gamer by any rate, but I do play some games, and on the few games that I do play I try to get as close to 100% completion as possible, and sometimes I succeed. Puzzle's probably the genre that gets me the most. You can find me on Steam, where I was formerly known as The Annoying Pyro for quite a while, before I finally decided that being annoying was getting old.

My 5 most favorite games of all time (so you may see me patrolling these tags most often):

  1. The Ratchet & Clank franchise, by Insomniac Games, who are awesome.

  2. The Sonic the Hedgehog franchise. I often prefer Knuckles to Sonic though, for some reason.

  3. The reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise. Admittedly, I was never interested in Lara Croft's previous capers, but Crystal Dynamics was right: I'm really captivated by the idea of going through this brand new, character-building adventure of survival with a fellow (albeit fictitious) human being.

  4. The RollerCoaster Tycoon franchise, originally created by the talented Chris Sawyer, who is also awesome.

  5. Team Fortress 2, my favorite class being (although I main as ).

Honorary mention goes to Minesweeper, with my personal records on the Windows 7 version being:

  • Beginner: 5 seconds
  • Intermediate: 28 seconds
  • Advanced: 64 seconds

comment What does “Leave a calling card on your victims” do?
It's specific to the item set rather than just the class. If you look at the text in your screenshot, it says "Croc-o-Style". The tombstone is also decorated with likenesses of the items that come from the specific item set.

comment Is it possible to unequip a piece of Gear?
Also, I just found out that when you pick up the first item for a particular slot, you always have to equip it if you do take it.

comment Is a ride of a type you already have just as effective as any?
Technically, the merry-go-round itself can be considered its only part (excluding the entrance and exit), since you can modify it with the construction tool just as with any other ride.

That's an excellent analogy.

comment Rollercoaster Tycoon screen tearing
The version that is sold by GOG is RCT Deluxe which includes CF and LL, so the patch branch OP is looking for is 1.20, not 1.08.
