I totally felt it coming for StarCraft. :P

Ah, don’t you just love the time around Christmas, where it’s quiet and peaceful (=most things on hiatus) and finally all the downloads can be done, you just didn’t have the capacity for earlier?

Mean bug after great game, with such a ridiculously fast & easy fix.

FYI: Keeping Dogmeat alive for the entire game doesn’t get the player a medal, nor is it mentioned in the endings at all. Does this feel right to you?

People are not lazy. They simply have goals that do not inspire them. Remember to follow you heart. What inspires you?

yep, crashes from level 3 to 4


Success! I managed to reach level 4. The only thing I can come up with, that I did different, was that I always and only used the yellow and red keycards on the elevator doors, to disable the electric fields. No trap and/or lockpick skills. As usual in these cases, it’s impossible to say if that’s the real reason for the previous crashes. At least it got nothing to do with too many items in the inventory, as this stayed the same.


I just played a little bit with TiddlyWiki and pretty soon a dialog window “has to” pop up, to pave the way for the vital option to save all the changes to the *.html file. To prevent going nuts, because of heavily repeating security questions (I’m sure Vista users wouldn’t mind), most people will probably also check the “Remember this decision” box. Generally allowing it is easy/fast, but then the question remains, how can it be removed again/what does it change? It doesn’t feel that good to allow the browser to edit (!) files on the disk.
The way I see it (and whom can you trust if not me), these 3 lines are added (to the prefs.js; sorry for the line breaks):

user_pref(“capability.principal.codebase.p0.granted”, “UniversalXPConnect”);
user_pref(“”, “file://”);
user_pref(“capability.principal.codebase.p0.subjectName”, “”);

if removed, the “Internet Security” dialog window will appear again. “granted” means… otherwise it would say “denied” (the other 2 lines stay the same). But there’s no reason to play it like that, since it’s always denied without these lines. p0 enumerates the resource. So looking for p1 (and so on) isn’t stupid.

Next I’ll try some of the many plugins.
