I found a telephone last night and saw that it said I would get circuitry from it, but after scrapping it the crafting interface still said I had zero circuitry. Is there something special I have to do, like pick which material I want to retrieve when scrapping something?

There's a perk you need to get certain resources from items when scrapping them manually. HOWEVER,

Items classified as "junk" don't need to be manually scrapped. Just open the transfer window and press T to dump your junk into the settlement's crafting inventory. Parts will be harvested from this inventory as needed.

Now, there's a bug where sometimes materials that are automatically harvested in this manner but not used immediately won't appear to be available, but they actually are. More info:

Oh, by the way - Codsworth does say my name in game now. For some reason he just didn't say it the first time I met him.

anyone found a bloody manual for the game yet?

I don't even know where to begin with the crafting and the ingame "help dialog" at the settlement is about as useful as dining table to a crocodile.

There's a help dialog? News to me! Where's that found?

I'm not sure about the weapon and armor crafting, but the settlement crafting is a mode you enter when you activate a workbench. Once there use the arrow keys to navigate through the different classes of items until you have highlighted the item you want. You'll see a popup showing what raw materials it requires and what materials you have. If you've got the materials, you'll see an outline of the object appear on screen, and you can walk around to move its location. When it's where you want, click to place it.

Tearing things down to recover raw materials is done in the same mode. Just walk around and look at the thing you want to salvage and it should become highlighted so that you can click to recover it.

I assume that armor and weapon crafting works similarly, but I haven't tried those yet.

OK, How do you throw grenades? I can't figure this out for the life of me.

Make sure you have some throwables (grenades, molotovs, w/e) equipped (they equip "on top of" your gun or melee weapon). Then it's the same button as bashing with your gun, except hold it down.

And unless you like being blown up, don't give grenades to your companion if they are humanoid.

Yes, this is the voice of experience talking. lol
