Well, it seems I forgot to make a post last night, and I didn’t remember that until just a few minutes ago. =\
I know, I’m a terrible person, but I’m bound to forget every now and then, right? =P So, anyway, time to talk about what’s new in my life. I actually haven’t heard from my language exchange partner in 5 days now. Under normal circumstances I would assume I said something that could have offended her, but I’ve re-read the e-mail, and there’s nothing that could be taken in a bad way.
Ah well, I’m sure she’s just been too busy to respond, I know I get that way sometimes. =P
So, what else have I been doing? I installed Elderscrolls II Daggerfall today. This was a surprisingly easy, and yet painfully difficult process. See, had the directions on the site actually been written properly, it really wouldn’t have been so bad. I mean, I’ve never used Dosbox before, so I wasn’t really in a position to notice the errors.
Once I finally got it installed, I had to fiddle around for an hour or so, just trying to get the emulated sound card working. You know, I had enough trouble getting real Sound Blaster 16s working back in the day, it can be outright mean to try and get a virtual one working. As it turns out, my processor was, somehow, too powerful. So, I had to cut it down a bit and all finally worked itself out.
Still, after having fiddled with both Wine and now Dosbox, I think Dosbox is the better software, just seems more polished.
Alright, it’s absurdly late, and I’ve got one more thing to do around here before I can head off to sleep. おやすみなさい！(Oyasumi nasai!) =D
