Balancing Choice With Irreversible Consequences In Games

DeeKayWon Re:It's OK. (352 comments)

You're correct. The "sensor" referred to in inviolet's post was a button behind glass right next to the fire doors with the text "In case of fire break glass" around it. Breaking the glass (like an explosion would) would cause the door to shut, but you could just go up to the button and press it to reopen the door.

I'd be fine with getting trapped like that if it came with an explicitly-stated game over. Also, I would think that if those fire doors were unopenable, that you would've been given an explicit game over because that's exactly what you got if a vital NPC died (e.g. one needed to open a door with a retinal scanner).

Apple Pays Couple $1.7m For 1 Acre Plot

DeeKayWon Re:eminent domain (215 comments)

It's not 2005 anymore. Most state governments hated the Kelo v. City of New London decision and passed laws to prevent similar things from happening. North Carolina was one of those states.

66% of All Windows Users Still Use Windows XP

DeeKayWon Re:If not Program Files, then where? (931 comments)

Maybe I spoke too soon, but C:\Users\All Users (a symlink to C:\ProgramData) should also work, and is probably preferred over C:\Users\Public. The point is that there most certainly are locations suitable for what you want.

DeeKayWon Re:If not Program Files, then where? (931 comments)

So in what folder should programs store machine-wide settings and created or downloaded content that affect all users?

HDCP Master Key Is Legitimate; Blu-ray Is Cracked

DeeKayWon G'huh? (1066 comments)

What does this specifically have to do with Blu-ray? The discs themselves use AACS for encryption. The link from the player to the display is what uses HDCP.

Microsoft Unveils New Xbox 360 Wireless Controller

DeeKayWon Wrong thing to talk about on the d-pad (150 comments)

The change they made to the d-pad doesn't sound like it addresses the crappiness of the existing d-pad at all. I don't care about disc versus plus, I care about things like its tendency to register a diagonal press when trying to press a horizontal direction.

Seriously, take a 360 controller, hold left on the d-pad, and at the same time try to rock your thumb toward the up and down directions. It moves a lot! Using one on Windows, you can see in the controller properties how easily it registers diagonal presses. Now do the same thing with a Logitech Cordless Rumblepad 2, which has a very similar d-pad. It's far less finicky than the 360 pad.

So really, how is this new d-pad supposed to fix that?

The Wrath of the Apple Tribe

DeeKayWon Re:inappropriate even handedness (870 comments)

In this way ID has not been disproven.

The fact that no one has come up with any remotely conceivable way to disprove it is one of the biggest reasons it doesn't belong in science.
