    Uhm. Yes, but it means something very different.

    No, in first half of 20th century computers(if you can call them that way) were big as a whole house and bugs sometimes got into computers making problems. And that is how the term bug was made.

    Really! I never knew that, but now I think about it, it does make sense.

    It's an accessibility thing, so that people who have trouble holding down two keys at once can still make programs think that they did. You can disable it if it annoys you.

    I tend to turn it on accidentally by pressing shift 5 times. >.<

    About the sneaking, would anyone have had made it differently? I mean I was scared witless in those caves the first time I played it. And thinking about having to replay that part if I want to play the game again isn't exactly a pleasant thought. But would I leave out the trolls?...dunno...would it have been better if it had been a cutscene?

    Press shift five times, and a little box pop up. Select 'Settings' or something like that, and disable the hotkeys for all those.

    No, it wouldn't have been better as a cut scene. You'd feel left out, I think.

    i was really scared too, but i don't think it's such a bad thing, you know. do you like horror movies? - i don't, actually, but in computer games - yeah, i like that stuff, and i guess we'd all agree that in this aspect the caves were very well done. maybe it was too much for some, yeah, but still, overall, i really enjoyed the caves. the only major flaw was that bloody combat mode which, once on, ment you either reloaded right there or died and then reloaded anyway. there should have been a way to run away from the big troll, maybe some kinda trap you could have set up and then lured the troll in. or the troll should have been beatable - maybe very hard, but beatable - what's the point in combat mode if you cannot kill the bloody thing anyway? dreamfall was supposed to present player with a choise as to how to deal with different situations - the caves didn't really give any choice.

    it works better if it asks you if it can format your hard disk
    A fully working kitchen holds a great many things, not least of which is a huge collection of ways of committing horrible murder, plus multiple ways of getting rid of the evidence.

    * user types furiously *

    [Clippy] "Hell no"? I don't know this answer. I think it defaults to "yes". Have a nice day!
