Misc screenshots

I’m probably becoming a little bored with FFXV again, even Anseling. After a while I feel like everything screenshot-wise starts to look the same or something. Would help if I played more story sections perhaps, or used more NPC mods, but constant swapping of save files, mods, and cheatengine tables becomes annoying. I’ve already taken a lot of story screens anyway, but they were posted in the old Imgur folders instead of this blog (linked to in the page headers up top).

Catching up with films/TV and running through Amazon finally looking for bluray’s of fave films. When VHS was a thing I bought tons of those (still have most in storage boxes) and bought a fair number of DVD collections, but I’ve bought very few bluray’s since I now typically stream vs. physical media. Noticed 4k blurays are cheapish these days, perhaps it’s time for a 4k bluray player.  Or wait 8-10 more years for 8k. You know it’s coming.  A few “8k” tv’s already exist, but there’s no actual 8k content so what’s the point, yet.  But an 8k, 75+ inch TV + 8k versions of Aliens or Terminator 2 or Lord of the Rings or some animes … I might never leave the recliner. Or go to a theater again, ever.  Not that I go to theaters much at all, already. We’re getting close to buying a new main/living room TV – it’ll be at least a 65-incher this time. That’ll be fun to occasionally game on (might inspire me to buy the new gen. Playstation).  Lately I want bigger and bigger screens. I’m seriously considering chucking the 43″ 4k TV that sits *on* my desk and mounting a giant 4k TV on the wall behind my desk for PC use, instead.  Super-size me.

DMC5 characters in FFXV is best mods ever

There’s been a lot of model replacement mods on Steam for other game chrs. I haven’t liked any of them personally, however. Until now. I tried them without replacing the physics file, so the bottom part of the coats clip a lot. I’ll have to try that file tho, because these model replacers are worth the trouble. Are they perfect? No. But they look pretty good/work well and I love ’em. You can view and get them from this Steam user’s Workshop.

Devil May Cry 5 (4k) – V’s panther

I want one, gimmie!!

…also, thank you Cheat Engine table makers. I can now play as any chr. in whatever mission I want. At least for screenshots. Forcing this issue can make the game crash under some circumstances, and the cutscenes aren’t affected, but eh, at least I can start a mission with them, dash around a bit and grab pictures. These are from Mission 2 I think it is, very early in the game when you’re supposed to be Nero.

Of the graphic settings in the game, I’m most annoyed with Bloom. I usually hate it on because of the contrast-dimming hazy/glowy look it gives, but in DMC5 the setting also sometimes controls how light-fancy some effects are. So you either choose less haze, or better light-shows. And as good as the game looks in motion, it often still lacks a little something re: screenshot clarity – which is fine, it’s one reason for the game’s decent optimization – very good looking but still performs well. I’m just picky. Maybe if I played 4k with 125% resolution scaling….

Not the panther, just cool:

Devil May Cry 5 + Photo Mode

I wasn’t going to buy this game but I was one, bored, two, still curious about its Photo Mode, and three, the more mage-like character has a black panther pet.  So now that I own DMC5, I am one, still kind of bored, two, not all that impressed with Photo Mode, and three, I have yet to reach the chr. that has the panther. That’s because despite Photo Mode being clunky and extremely limited in viewpoint scope, you can still get some ok shots with it sometimes – if you’re patient and like wasting time doing things like jumping in the same spot for 20 minutes trying to get a cool shot with a specific background.

Early impression is that if you like bashing enemies and get a rush from successfully executing fancy moves, this game could be for you. There’s not much story (so far) but it’s flashy and has a very fast pace. However, if like me you’re more interested in taking pictures than killing monsters or racking up stye points, you can have the game Assist you by randomly executing some of those moves for you with single button presses, as you coast as much as possible on easy mode. 😛

This round of pics focuses on one character because that’s who you start out with. It’s not because I love the dude. If I can hurry up and get to the Kylo Ren look-alike with the panther, I may post another round. Of the panther. Hah. Photo Mode doesn’t come even remotely close to Ansel. But it’s still a nice feature for players of the game. Note: by default, it force-slaps a game logo on the screen, whereby I quickly found a way to prevent it. Nyah. DMC5 is less of a resource hog than FFXV and runs in 4k/Ultra at 80-120fps, which is pretty sweet.
