    Have decked out the front of the house with Christmas lights, and with them on just noticed my LOTR and RS have been having some mid-game resets. Can this be because of drain on the power supply?

    EDIT: You need to manually go to 1m 48 seconds.

    it is possible, if everything is on the same circuit.

    Turn the lights off and play. No resets? It was the lights

    Same circuit? Yes power drop is a bitch. Especially when logic needs a fairly steady 5v.

    Yep, experimented and does happen. Just put the pins outside and use them as decoration?

    So glad I set up a dedicated circuit for my games. I suggest trying that.
