    I've been trying to get the most authentic Fallout experience; and one of the things I remember hearing about is changing the string "drug" to "chem" in Fallout and Fallout 2. I'd like to change the strings back, but I don't know how to modify game data myself (ideally with a few tools as possible).

  • You could open up the game's data files in a hex editor and change the text from "chem" to "drug" because they're both four characters, that should do the trick.

  • I'm currently on the first level of Fallout Tactics. I generally move my characters in sneak mode where possible. I've also got turn based set to individual. When my characters move over some sort... and an animation plays as though they're going to move but they don't actually move. While stuck the character can perform other actions such as changing pose. The only way to get a character unstuck is to end their turn. I've just downloaded Fallout Tactics from GOG so hopefully I have the latest version (file date is 28/11/2008). Does anybody know how to resolve this issue?

  • So, Xbox redeemable codes are 25 character case insensitive strings of letters and numbers. However, it has been suggested that not all letter/number combinations might appear (eg. 0/O). In the interest of fraud detection, what is the definitive (read as: {{Citation needed}}) list of possible characters which might make up this string? Bonus points: given these additional rules, what are the number of possible strings that could be formed.

  • Apparently you could tip brahmin in Fallout 3. This is one of those few things in Fallout 3 I never thought of, and thus never tried. Rather than loading up Fallout 3 just to go brahmin-tipping, I'm wondering if you can do that in New Vegas as well, as they're built on the same tech?

  • . Humbuckers have higher output than a single coil pickup since both coils are connected in series. Like a single coil pickup, the magnets in a humbucker produce a magnetic field around the strings, which in turn induces an electrical current in the coils as the strings vibrate. A humbucking pickup is essentially two single coil pickups, one of which has the north poles of its pole pieces oriented toward the strings, and the other has the south pole of its pole pieces oriented toward the strings. Since the coils are connected in series and out of phase, noise and interference are significantly reduced

  • I'm playing Deux Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut and I have the email from Athene Margoulis asking me to find the drug thief. I went through an air shaft down stairs from the cafeteria (like maintnance offices section) and I found a big vertical airshaft. Climbing down the stairs I find a datapad with an email which pretty much proves that Brian Tindall is the thief. The problem is that when I go back to Ms. Margoulis she doesn't respond to it. Is it a bug? Or am I missing something?
