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.

Background test

I used Promcoli BECAUSE IT’S HILARIOUS.

I cropped out the background from one of those garuda effect shots for greenscreen use. More muted neutral tones and again, it’s nice to have something that’s less “flat” vs. a solid color. Why oh why didn’t Nvidia let us have more than 2 at a time….

I’ve also gone back to no glasses Ignis for a bit. I like glasses-on and glasses-off just about equally.

…I forgot Gladio. >.>   I need to get more for a Gladio-pic-spam post. Gotta keep it … marginally … fair …  :p

It’s always night

Finally found/adapted an adequate “stars” background to use with the greenscreen feature (so many nightsky photos/artwork are too decorative…). Works well to cover the whole area or partial. It’s nice for those times where the daylight distant textures look bleh, or when I don’t want a flat solid color field. Altho, I should probably give it a more gradual darkening so it’s not as even.
These aren’t awesome screenshots, just cheap examples of what I mean. As a bonus, you get the brighter or softer daylight shaders on faces vs. yellowish filters or that harsh blue bro-night light. So mostly I’ll probably use a darker grey and this starfield for greenscreen-ing, now.

It’s almost Christmas – not sure if I’ll take a FFXV break or not. Hubby and I may get wrapped up into some stuff between now and New Years. Plus I did buy a couple new games (Resident Evil 2 remake, Planet Zoo) … may try those for a while. Maybe.
