Red Earth!

So, I’ve always liked Leo. I’ve always wondered about the game he was from, since Capcom kind of didn’t care of Red Earth/War-Zard, which turned out to be an amazingly fun game with lots of loldifficulty at the very end. Typical coin-eaters.

So, I ended up clearing it, and surprisingly, under 20 lives! I thought I died more than that. The sprites are amazing, and getting it running on a PS3 was a pain. I would’ve emulated it normally if it didn’t work, but to get it working, it felt good! Anyways, I decided to be dedicated on Leo and finally finished.leo1.png

The Dumb Computer.

So. This PC has caused me much grief, between needing certain parts replaced and then some.

My current issues are :
1 – Power Supply’s getting up there in years.
2 – CPU has some sort of problem. I’m fine on 4 cores, but being on 8 seems to turn my PC off randomly. Either it’s dying, or needs to be re-seated. I did notice some paste on the connectors at one point, so there’s a good chance we just need to do some cleaning. Not smart, but what can we do?
3 – Apparently, I learned of one of the most grave errors. The retard built this PC, he insisted on exchanging PCs at one point, and I’m left with this crapbox. How bad is it?

This was made as a “performace” and “gaming” PC. Powered by those fancy thermal coolant things. Of course, if you run out, and don’t replace it. What happens?

This PC tower wasn’t built for standard use. It has NO ventilation. In fact, I use a large fan because there’s no proper ventilation. Yeah, all fans lead air to go out.
WHAT GOOD IS AIR GOING OUT IF  YOU CAN’T PUSH THE AIR TO ACTUALLY GO OUT?

I’m surprised my PC is as alive as it is today. That retard’s poor building made me believe it was fine, when it suffered many problems. In fact, I have to figure out a solution to keep my video card from getting too hot, while also dispersing heat produced from the CPU. It all literally bottles up in the middle of this computer, causing it to overheat.

So, what I have to do is figure out a DIY trick to move an outer-case fan to a specific location, in an attempt to cool down two areas, in hopes of finally being able to use a quiet set-up. It took me a while to realize how bad it is, because the computer cools down fairly fast after an overheat. Ironically. Tracking down the problem for months, and now, I have my solution.

More like.. how would I know all my fans blow air out after he “replaced” them? I didn’t have issues for a while because I didn’t play much games for the past two months.

Sheesh… I been wanting to do nothing but draw last month. I got fed up so much.

So… yeah… on Monday, we’ll begin tackling that. I need to come up with a possible case mod, but I’m an amateur with very poor craftsmanship, so it’ll be a shoddy DIY. I’ll have my boy do some possible rewiring, though there is a single case fan I need him to replace, and my fat hands means I can’t turn a screw-driver, making it moot unless I yank everything out.

Hopefully we’ll finally solve my PC’s problems. By that point, I’ll try pushing my PC to 5 or 6 cores, and replug the second video card in hopes of it all being fine. Sigh. Positioning, wind, science.

Overall Plans

So, the outlook for December is…

Drawing. We have a Holiday to celebrate and then some.

We started Tree of Savior and became obsessive about leveling due to how easy they made it, and are going to aim for a high point and then stop. Fortunately, we can only play for limited amount of times due to limited resources.

In December, I’ll be doing PS3 hacking and customizing, though I should really get to 3DS customizing first…

I haven’t had any time to actually touch Berseria and I’m still debating on how we’ll handle Zestiria…

Other than all that, I’m hoping to possibly sneak music in… there’s much I have to do, but so little time, apparently.

We’ll also be doing Switch stuff, apparently.
So.. 3DS, Switch, PS3, while my boy’s going to be going 3DS, Switch, PS4, Vita, due to Tokyo Xanadu. He’s hoping that Aksys does right on the PS4 version, but is doubtful. All Falcom fans are. Aksys just sucks. Fact. Plain FACT.

So…
1 – Drawing
2 – Crossing legal boundaries
3 – Entering poverty which makes 2 ironic, due to hefty purchase.
4 – Games. LOTS AND LOTS OF GAMES.
5 – I hope to get music in. I feel out of tune.

In between -everything- is that I need to exercise and get excess flab off… which means every day, 30 minutes minimum of some form of simple routine. Which I’m already falling behind with. Because I’ve been typing. Because I’ve been reminiscing, and being hyped by having stationary emulation. I mean, there’s no real better joy than sitting at a console together and living the past, in the present. It’s some good quality bonding time between us.

Other than all that.. hum…. I don’t know.

I did learn that GameStop raised Sonic Colors’ price tag from $9.99 to $14.99. This is exactly why people hate GameStop. They literally control prices based on their whims. I wanted Sonic Colors earlier. In fact, I’m pretty damn sure I wanted it when it was $4.99.

Sheesh…

PS3 / CFW

So, the PS3’s latest exploit is out, after many years. The PS3 had a good run with many amazing games, and the ironic timing of this exploit is that the PS3 is starting to dwindle in terms of content and then some; it’s already out of production.

“Sony has formally ended production of thePlayStation 3 in Japan, according to PlayStation’s official page (in Japanese, as seen by Gematsu). … The PS3 memorably launched in November 2006 for the price of $499 for a 20 GB console and $599 for the 60 GB configuration.”

Currently, I’m debating on what to do ONCE we get to the hacking process, but I have to do a good few hours of research on what to get, and how to get it. We can even record videos! (more…)
