  • How can I increase the max selected units in Starcraft single player? Gareth Jones

    I've been playing Starcraft again, and have found the most annoying thing about it is that I can only select a max of 12 units at a time. This is most annoying when playing as Zerg, as I often want to select all my drones, but often end up selecting my larvae as well.

    Is there a way of increasing the max number of units you can have selected at a time in single player, either in game, by mod, tweaking a settings file, or another way?

  • No.

    There is no legitimate (ethically acceptable) way of changing the game to select more than 12 units.

    Mainly because mods in Brood War aren't like Minecraft mods, it doesn't just make the game more fun, it potentially (in this case, definitely) gives you an unfair advantage over your opponent.

    As a long time Brood War player, I entreat you to avoid using these methods and enjoy the game's imperfect beauty.

    But this may quench your thirst if you're not picky about experiencing the pure, true Brood War.

  • When running Dishonored in windowed mode it does not use the full selected resolution - e.g. when I select 1920x1200 (which is also my native resolution) the window does not span the full width of my screen. Since I usually use GameCompanion to convert full-size windows to fake fullscreen (like in WoW etc.) this is annoying as it doesn't work - most likely due to the fact that the window is too small. So I wonder if there's a way (such as an INI tweak) to make the game window use the full resolution I selected in the options.

  • to be part of your team? In Single Player, active abilities can not be selected for AI teammates, AFAIK. Do AI teammates use any passive or active abilities if they have been unlocked or selected for that character in Single Player? If yes, how do they select which active abilities to use? If no, do they have a default, fixed set of abilities that they use? ...I noticed that the AI for the medic, Bertha, will ocassionally use the first aid spray on the player character if he/she is injured.

  • So I bought AOE2HD on Steam and have been playing a bit with friends. One annoying thing I find is in a large battle I can't see the health of all units in real time so I have a difficult time managing my units. In many other RTS games holding the ALT key shows a healthbar for all units on screen but this doesn't work in AOE2. I've looked through options and Googled but couldn't find anything.

  • I have been playing the Lego Movie game on my windows pc fine for a while. However, recently the 2nd player controller configuration is not getting saved; every time I go back to the control configuration, it says "no device selected". When I choose "change device", I am able to correctly add a device (i.e., the game goes detect the keyboard or gamepad), but when I accept and go back to configuration, it is back to "no device selected". I was looking for some (perhaps corrupted) configuration file that I could delete

  • I'm playing SNES games on the Wii U virtual console and I've noticed an annoying quirk: the gamepad can be mapped to player 1 or 2, but the first Wiimote/Classic Controller pro I activate will ALWAYS... for ordering. Is there a way to force a single wiimote/classic controller pro to act as "controller 2" or otherwise change which controller maps to which player so I can play 2 player games using only two controllers instead of three? I can change which player uses the gamepad, but what if I want to use the gamepad for player 1 anyway?

  • Possible Duplicate: In StarCraft 2, is there a way to automatically set groups on units about to be produced? When I'm battling in SC2, I often set my Barracks rally point to to a unit I try to keep safe so when a new Marine is created it will move over to where my view is.. I'd actually like to be able to set the Marine, Firebat, Vulture, whatever unit to be auto assigned to a control group on creation, so that I can just hit 1 and attack instead of waiting for that unit to appear in my view then add it to the group. Is this possible? Or am I asking for the impossible? :D

  • I find it really annoying that (upon completing a Zone/Act) I am taken back to the level select screen by default. I feel that this breaks the continuity of the game, especially seeing as I can then go back and re-play a level in order to improve my score/have another crack at that Chaos Emerald Challenge. Obviously I know about the Play the Next Act button, seen below. What I would like to do is automate this, so the only way out is to quit via the pause menu. That way I wont have to remember to hit this button every time. I'm playing on PC, and I've been through the game's configuration

  • not inadvertently select "True Vault Hunter." I selected "Normal" and was PLACED into a True Vault Hunter game. I quit the game as soon as I was able, and was forced to save it.

Is there any way I can revert my saved game back to the point where...Yesterday I finished the normal game by killing Jack. Today I started borderlands 2 and selected my character.
