Playing DN with PS3 controller

Just because I can doesn’t mean I should. My 2nd experience of trying to play DN with the Playstation Dualshock 3 controller is very interesting, but I’ll stick with keyboard and mouse.

The movement is better than during my 1st experience, probably due to different driver/software used. Still, the dungeon run is as disastrous as before. Maybe I need more practice. But I think I’ll drown in my own frustrations first.

Camera rotation is one speed only, so that’s problem number 1. The amount of skills slots means combination keys have to be used (for example L1 + Square button) so trying to fire off the right skill while moving out of harm’s way is problem number 2.

Good thing I’m use a Majesty. My sister was telling me how it would be quite complicated trying to get it working with an Acrobat.

Point of the experiment was, I could get it to work. But I wouldn’t play DN with a controller unless I am able to get round the above problems.

For those interested, this is the method that I used to get PS3 controller working with my computer (yes it is primarily for emulators, shhh). I tried Motion In Joy before but the uninstalling part gave me headaches.

Just a quick status update and a bit about missing quests

It’s really late now but I’m waiting for my poor HTC Flyer’s battery to get a bit more power in it before I go to bed, so I decided to clear some of the comments backlog while I wait. USB charging is slow, and my poor netbook is probably gonna have to remain on for the whole night.

I noticed a few comments after the big patch on 15 Jan saying that the Abyss related quests disappeared, so I did a bit of googling and checked the forums. Turns out, the quests didn’t disappear. They were hidden. The option at Quest window saying  “Hide Quest Marker” now hides the quest starting option for the lower level quests as well, instead of just the marker in mini-map.

So people who cannot find your Spread of the Abyss or other Abyss quests, you know what to do now.

PS. Staring at the battery meter saying 0% is scary. It’s 3% now, woohoo! But I still don’t dare to switch to using outlet charger yet. 🙁

Final Fantasy: Distant Worlds!

Okay, it happened a few days ago (22th May 2009) but I went to the Final Fantasy Distant Worlds Orchestra Concert! It was teh love! I have always had a weakness for full blown orchestra pieces, and now that the pieces are some of my favorite game soundtrack, I don’t think I’ll forget this ever. Even with my crappy memory.

Which Suikoden rune?

You are most compatible with the Gate Rune. You are probably a person who likes to explore and see new places and things. You also see it as your responsibility to try to help others. You don’t run their lives for them, but you try to give them a nudge in the right direction and aid them in problems that seem to be too big for them to handle. You are concerned with the fate of humanity in general, and try to help do your part by using whatever abilities you have for the collective good. Although you are good at predicting the outcome of events, you may also miscalculate or fail to see something, which can cause problems.

The current owner of the Rune of the Gate is Leknaat. She and her sister, Windy, were a part of the Gate Rune Clan. Their village was attacked by the Harmonian Empire, and to protect the rune they divided it in two and fled. Windy swore vengence, and ruthlessly tried to aquire a more powerful rune to do so. Eventually she found the Soul Eater, which led to the Gate Rune Wars. Windy used the Front Gate Rune to summon monsters from the “World of Emptiness” to amass an army to take it, and Leknaat, with her Back Gate Rune and Joshua Levenheit’s Dragon Rune, sent them back. In the end she died, and her half of the rune went to Leknaat. Leknaat has been the keeper of the Stone Tablets, listing the 108 “Stars of Destiny.” She has been a guiding force in every set of Stars.
