I work full time at a big software company, when I'm not doing that I'm developing games. I keep a development blog at www.byte56.com and you can follow me on twitter.

I've created a course with Lynda.com to teach advanced scripting with the Unity 3D engine, check it out! Have a 10-day free trial to Lynda.com to watch my course and many others

comment What sort of performance penalty does WINE cause?
@JohntheGreen Then contribute as a comment. The comment can also be used to explain why the question is off topic.

comment What sort of performance penalty does WINE cause?
@JohntheGreen I didn't say it was a rule. The problem is, when people ask off topic questions and they get answered, it encourages people to ask off topic questions anyway. Voting down correct answers isn't something I like to do, even if they shouldn't have been answered.

Questions that are too broad to be answered should be flagged or voted on, not answered.

Just because you want to use this system to play games, doesn't make it on topic for gaming.

Asking for a way around it is asking for piracy.

comment How do you produce iron?
That means click the text Smelter (0|0), to build a smelter. Which makes it Smelter (1|0). Then click the + button to make it Smelter (1|1) to being production.

comment What are the advantages of the Reboot All button?
Isn't that a question only you can answer? How can we tell you if it's worth it to you? Do you mean to ask is one way faster than another?

comment I want to chat with friends, but not hear game sound/volume?
@user1544217 Try to state all your requirements in the original question. This isn't a forum, where back and forth conversation is expected. Your question should include all the required information (and nothing more).

Not sure this addresses the "they said that they could not hear me" portion of the problem.

comment Steam and Teamspeak not connecting, but internet in general is working fine?
These are two wholly unrelated things. You haven't provided enough information to answer what your problem is. That's because it requires a lot of back and forth and troubleshooting. This question is not suited for this site.

Does your mouse click work? Or have multiple monitors? Sometimes the cursor can loose focus on the game. Restart your game.
