Starting Anew

June 30, 2009 at 11:13 pm (Blogging, Gaming, Tech)

So I started once again in WoW. I was 71, a friend basically took me around by my hand and did my quests for me to get to 72. Then he kicked me out the door and told me to do it on my own.

I’m lazy in WoW. I have no drive. All I want to do is be end game and gank. That’s what made private servers so appealing. But the reason I’m playing WoW is because it’s hard to get to end game. Therefore … more scrubs to gank.

I leveled up while doing Bonfire quests.  I just need to beat Ahune to get the title Flame Keeper. Then it’s back to boring leveling again.

Enough WoW for now!

Other news..

I started my summer classes — well class. Pre Cal 2, 5 week course. It’s super hard. I have no clue what the teacher is saying, I asked a classmate for help and I was just baffled at what came out of his mouth for an explanation.

Not surprised, pre cal 1 I had to teach myself everything at home. Sucks though because I’m totally wanting to hit 80 so all my time is in WoW instead of school. Ugh it’s just like my senior year of high school.

I’m going to start my homework no worries. Tomorrow I’m going to teach myself everything (not tonight I just played WoW for 5 hours and am about to go to sleep). I’ll do my homework tomorrow afternoon and do a few raids before bed. Hopefully it’ll work out.

I totally bombed a worksheet we had to do in class today, So I’m going to try to redo it tomorrow and see if he will take it again.

I’ve got a new scanner. CanoScan LiDE 100.

60 bucks off amazon, does wonders for my line art. Example:

Yeah.. self portrait ftw

Yeah.. self portrait ftw

Reso is much bigger but I shrank it for the post.

This gives me alot of ideas. I’d like to try my hand at animation, frame by frame and scanning them into adobe premier.

It’s funny all this happened when I was all ready to start my Machinima of WoW (subject is classified atm 😉 ).

My first project was just testing voice sync. I was so freaking lazy I didn’t do frame by frame I just cut and pasted all over the place. Here it is, with voice from the intro to Misadventures of Flapjack.

I’ll have to pick one or the other. But these decisions make me bleh.

Other news, I’ve got a New but very old G4 PowerMac. It’s 2x 500Mhz, 1gb ram. I installed OS X 10.5 Leopard on it. If you’ve happened to come across this post from googling that, just hold Option + O + F when booting to bring up Open Firmware and type in the following to over clock your cpu to 876Mhz while installing. It will revert back to norm speed after instalation.

dev /cpus/PowerPC,G4@0
d# 867000000 encode-int ” clock-frequency” property
boot cd:,\\:tbxi

and if you have dual cpu like me use this instead

dev /cpus/PowerPC,G4@0
d# 867000000 encode-int ” clock-frequency” property
dev /cpus/PowerPC,G4@1
d# 867000000 encode-int ” clock-frequency” property
boot cd:,\\:tbxi

OS x 10.5 runs pretty swell on a dual cpu. I’m actually holding it until the real owner desires to use it (family member). If it was mine I’d be ALL OVER it installing a bunch of awesome apple software.

I’m a mac fan at heart. They’re just so damn expensive.

Back to reality…

I have no ambition atm, even though I should be super happy, I’m loosing weight and exercising (lost 40 lbs over the past 7 months) I’ve got a nice scanner, a high level in WoW. This is just one of those depressive nights where you just don’t feel it.

Alas, tomorrow is a new day.

Cross your fingers.

P.S.
Within the next few weeks on Saturday nights I will be broadcasting Shenmue 2 on the Sega Dreamcast with commentary on my JUSTIN.TV channel so keep watch for schedule.

Also if you have time check out my friends channel, he usually broadcasts every day with rockin music while he plays wow and/or streams some awesome anime. http://www.justin.tv/apollos_legacy I’m going to be doing a weekly comic strip for his channel soon.

Ahh Hacked Again!!

June 20, 2009 at 3:35 pm (Blogging)

My acount is once again compromised.

I can’t do anything about it until monday..

I changed everything, I got new Anti virus, scan once a week, changed email to one I never use, had a ridiculous password of random letters.

Ugh this is horrible, right when I get a week off from school I lose my account.

In other news, I got Shenmue II I’m going to broadcast on Justin.tv. In bad news, my controllers are dead and my mic broke.

This just isn’t my month; if I used my car I’m sure it’d break down some time soon too.

Yeah it’s been a while since my last post. I’ve been working alot on school, it’s summer but I’ve signed up for 5 week classes to try and graduate a year faster.

When I haven’t been studying I’ve been playing games. Not WoW, unfortunatly I can’t get back into it and I don’t know why..

I’ve been messing with more Emulators, I do have the new PS2 slim but I don’t have one of those cards to flip the drive open, so I can’t play my burned games. I’ve been playing the PCSX2 0.9.6 emu, it works really good with my rig. Graphics isn’t an issue if you’re looking into Emulating the GCN or PS2, they mainly use CPU, and having Dual Core is a huge plus. Naruto Shippuden Accel 2 works like a dream with my E2220.

That was gameplay recorded with Fraps. I get about 60 FPS in game.

Dolphin version 3300 works great too. I play Animal Crossing on it mostly, but I’ve successfully played a few games on it. With Dolphin you have to manually select the option to use both cores of your CPU. Other wise it acts like a single core and it’s SO SLOW.

Here’s a list of games I’ve tested that work, with links to recorded video by me and settings if needed to change from default.

PCSX2 0.9.6:

GunGrave – 40 FPS. Playable. Youtube. Settings.

Naruto Shippuden Accel 2 – 60 FPS. Playable. Youtube. Settings.

Kingdom Heats – 50 FPS. Playable. Same settings as GunGrave.

The Bouncer – 30-60 FPS. Playable but it goes from slow to fast. Settings.

Dolphin 3300:

Naruto: Gekitou Ninja Taisen 4 – 25 FPS. Playable. Youtube.

Animal Crossing – 50 FPS. Playable.

Bloody Roar – 20 FPS. Playable. Youtube.

Super Mario Sunshine – 15 FPS. Playable. No Sound. Youtube.

When playing these Emulators, I don’t own a game pad and I don’t like the thought of using my keyboard for PS2 or GCN. So I used the PSP Homebrew known as “WifiController”. It works amazingly well, and even for other games like Devil May Cry 4 on PC.

To use WifiController, you put the homebrew files onto your PSP, and edit the config to point to your computers IP Address. Then from your computer you run the WifiServer, start the WifiController on PSP and connect it to your network via Wifi. If the WifiServer is running on your PC it will connect through the router and you can then use your PSP as a gamepad.
