disk mount

that would be cool yeah I would get to know that game <3

aLRIGHT so!! First things first:

Here’s where you download the game. It’s a torrent, so you’ll need something like BitComet or uTorrent to download it. If that’s a problem for you, let me know and I’ll upload the zip file myself somewhere for ya!

Then, here’s the English patch + official DLC! Just scroll to the bottom and click the button that says “+Download” and go from there. 

Finally, here’s the instructions on how to install. Make sure that you follow these TO THE T or else things will get really confusing. I’ll be honest with you, the instructions were already confusing for me, so don’t be scared at all to ask me questions if you’re stuck. The thing that really got me was the disk mounting, so to help you understand, I’ll give you a quick explanation:

When you mount disk 1, you’ll go through and install the game as it says to. Then, once a box comes up after some time during installation, you’ll go and mount disk 2 as the guide says. After that, one more box will come up after some time and you’ll mount disk 3. Hopefully that makes it a little easier to understand!

When installing the DLC and Patch after you’ve installed the game, you’ll just need to follow the first set of instructions for the Patch, since they’ve made it easy and combined it with the DLC. 

As for the whole Japanese Locale thing, that’s pretty confusing as well. Here’s some images of what it looks like on my computer (I have Windows 7):

Your computer will start to view most everything in Japanese locale, such as the date/time and even skype messages.

But because I’m so used to military time and reversed date readings, I’m cool with it.

Aaaaand after all thaaaaat… I think that’s everything. I’m pretty sure the game installer comes with the character maker as well, so you won’t need to worry about that. Anyway, as I said, if you have any questions feel free to shoot me an ask and I’ll help as best I can!! I’ve had my share of troubles with it, and thanks to Rio I was able to figure them out heheh.

I fuckin’ love these shots of the computer terminals around the Winter Soldier in 1991. Like, they’re both nearly flat-screen monitors with a black background and full-color graphic displays, including clickable menu buttons on the left, Hydra’s nifty color logo in the top left corner menu bar, and apparently really nice fonts with no pixelization or jagged edges. No putty-colored boxes with floppy disk mounts and cathode ray monitors for Hydra, nosireebob!

I mean, sure, I get it, they have the memory-wiping tech and the metal arm and all that, Hydra’s tech game is way ahead of everyone else’s, but did anyone who actually lived in 1991 work on this movie? Where are the people trying to write code in MS-DOS and FORTRAN or getting Not Enough Memory errors, or resorting to boot floppies because they can’t get the cryo tube door open the other way? Where are the people trying to run that nifty biometric graphics program on, like, Windows 3.0 and literally tearing out chunks of hair and crying because the damn Winter Soldier’s sitting there needing to be programmed but everything’s frozen (ha ha)? How about the low level tech grunts arguing over whether Wordstar or WordPerfect was the better program for writing mission profiles or going “Yeah, I don’t think Excel’s gonna last, Lotus 1-2-3 is clearly the better program for keeping track of the Asset’s weapons cache.” Sure, they could, at some point in 1991, get on the brand spankin’ new World Wide Web, but there was nothing ON it yet. And those monitors are lighter and thinner than the entire newly introduced Mac Powerbook.

Hydra might be genocidal Nazi world-domination-planning fascist monsters, but these motherfuckers should be condemned to the 9th Circle of Hell (which consists of just hypercard floppies and a dial-up modem that your cell leader can disconnect you from because he has to make a very important phone call, SCSI cables that are juuuust a half-inch too short to reach and have bent pins, 10 meg hard drives, and permanent backaches from lugging around your Hydra-issue six-pound laptop all mission) for having this sweet, sophisticated tech and not sharing it with the rest of us – and only using it instead to torture my smol sweet baboo for decades.

HTPC, Part 1.1

While playing around and trying to figure out the available space in the 1300MI LC power case, I accidentally figured out the top bars have screw holes, and are exactly 3.5" apart. Moving the middle bar puts them exactly 2.5" inches apart, so the only logical conclusion is to use them as a disk mount.

I wish the case had some kind of documentation for this. It wasn’t really straight forward, and there are next to none action shots on the internet with a mounted disk. I had the original 2.5" to 3.5" converter plate which came with the SSD, so I mounted that one. I did that so I had an additional level of separation between the PSU and the SSD. Ideally, two 2.5" disks can be mounted this way, or 1x3.5".

It still annoys me that I have space for several 2.5" disks (around 5), but no possibility to attach a drive bay into the case (using two screws in the bottom of the case, which were ment for slightly larger mainboards.

Thankfully, I’m atleast a little bit happier with the current situation.
