A little shy
And sad of eye
But very wise
Is he


Harry, the Captain, 21, INTJ

This blog contains: video games, screenshots (ALL OF THEM), werewolves, bats, dragons, and opinions. Also the occasional bit of brain vomit, a lot of complaining (it's the British national sport), and the ever elusive bit of photoshopped crap that I hesitate to call "art".

You'll likely see a lot of The Elder Scrolls, Dragon Age, Fable, The Legend of Zelda, Pokemon, and/or Mass Effect, along with whatever other random game I happen to be obsessing over at any time. Seriously, if I had to list all my favourite games, I'd be wasting both our time.

Gaming is my life; I am good at nothing else. Except maybe sarcasm.



Currently in the process of updating this; my Characters tab should have a lot more than just my Dragon Age OCs in it, so I'm working on adding to it slowly.

*Quietly raging*

I stay up until half past three in the goddamned morning so I can RP, and as soon as I start typing an entrance, I get disconnected?

Are you fucking kidding me? ASDFGHJKL.

Stupid goddamned fucking Internet.

Dad reckons the laptop is in working order

But he can’t guarantee for how long. So if nothing else, I hope it lasts long enough for me to get all the crap off my harddrive.

He says we should look into getting a new motherboard. I still think I should look at getting a new system.

Update on the laptop situation:

The motherboard is FUBARed.


For the record

Either my laptop or the emulator can’t read GameCube discs.  I’m probably going to go with the former, but either way, I can’t play it.


Brb, downloading all the ROMs.

Also this is about the only N64 emulator I’ve used so far that hasn’t crashed before I even started using it, so thanks for that, Ash XD

Having Internet issues

If that wasn’t already totally obvious.

And then my laptop blue screened again while I was trying to figure it out, while trying to rely on the crappy 3G on my phone.

I truly think that I’m just artificially extending the life of my laptop. It’s pretty crap and virtually falling apart now XD

Apparently I’m not the only one having Internet issues at the moment. This is truly fantastic.

Sorry, guys. And sorry aithne for randomly bailing on RP! My chat clients aren’t connecting at all now >:C

With all my technology woes at the moment I’m kind of going down the “fuck this” route for now.

I love that troubleshooters suggest “online support” for when you can’t connect to the Internet.

Your logic is flawless

Dear Harry’s laptop

I know I named you Hal, but that doesn’t mean you should live up to your namesake and blue screen every time I try to right click to extract something from an archive.

Please stop doing that so I can continue shoving mods into my mod folder.

No love until you stop dicking around,

The Captain

On a vaguely related note: I hate mod folders/archives that are entitled “mod” or “main file”, because I usually get about a dozen of each, and I end up having no idea what they are or why I downloaded them. It’s even worse when the mod itself is named exactly the same bloody thing, and/or there’s no readme file to give me an inkling of what it is.

I think I’m going to drive myself mad later and try and install Skyrim on my laptop again.

I mean, I could get it to play on my laptop the first time, except even at the lowest graphics settings I could only get it to run on a screen of 400 x 600 pixels.  Considering my laptop screen is 17 inches, that’s basically like looking at a postage stamp.  And a poorly rendered one, at that.

So, hopefully with a few mods, low res textures and a lot of tweaking, I’ll be able to actually play it properly.  Bethesda aren’t exactly well known for releasing well-optimised games, after all.

I found one mod already that removes the smoke from the loading screens.  That alone should help phenomenally.

If this does work, expect screenshots.

Aren’t you lucky?

I wish there was a separate character creator programme for the Elder Scrolls series.

That way I could possibly create my Skyrim characters and take all the screenshots without having to worry about my laptop/desktop exploding.

Seriously, playing Skyrim at 400x600 pixel resolution on the lowest graphic settings is utterly fucking ridiculous.

…And I highly doubt it would run on this desktop; it can’t even run Oblivion.


I really want to make Adonai and Do’Zari :C


Internet on my ‘box, internet on my phone, Internet in general.

Fuck you and quit it with your shenanigans.

Just. Fuck you. I give up.
