How to Mod PS3

Modding the PS3 can get quite confusing because the directions are not straight forward or can be confusing if you have not done this before or spend time trying to understand how everything works. At first I was confused but, with trial & error I was able to get it modded and installed homebrew and multiman.

Building_rpms

So After spending hours on trying to figure out how to build obs into an rpm using mock I finally succeeded. At the bottom is my whole history of commands and things I went through trying to figure out dependencies, building local and with mock…. I have to say this is a very interesting learning experience. But, one thing I found is that everyone does the spec file differently. Some build the spec that its easily to follow with variables and others have a mix of using some variables and hard coded lines. [Read More]

Fedora Nvidia GPU

You can easily follow the instructions on rpmfusion on how to install the nvidia drivers on fedora but, it can be somewhat confusing if you don’t follow the instructions exactly. By installing the repo then doing the commands posted on the instructions can give you a lot of headache if you don’t really pay attention. What I mean by this is that you really have to make sure you install the correct driver for your GPU. [Read More]

OBS with GPU

I started using OBS to stream but, I noticed that in most games it uses a lot of CPU so the games start to stutter and the audio gets cut off. I started googling around and saw an article from gamingonlinux.com on how to use the GPU for streaming instead of the CPU. Of course I ran into a lot of issues since I been noticing more and more lately that most linux desktop or gaming is build with debian/ubuntu/arch in mind and fedora usually lags behind. [Read More]

PS3 Emulator

While trying to find emulators I ran into dolphin, pcsx2 and rpcs3. I was not sure which one to start on since I did not had the collection of games I used to have since I mostly went completely pc gaming and all my games are on steam or gog. I decided to start with ps2 games since they were cheaper to acquire( at least some games). I went to ebay and got dot hack infestation, AVP extinction and the DMC series. [Read More]

Avp_extinction

AVP Extinction was a game that I really enjoyed when it came out. One of my favorites IP together in a strategy type game. Nothing better than building a horde of aliens and have your own hive that destroys everything and drags the bodies back to the hive to get turned into more aliens or pre-aliens. I been able to play most of this game on pcsx2 but, I had to use windows :( because getting to build successfully in linux is a pain and you need to install a lot of i. [Read More]

Streaming

I never been fan much of streaming and watching others play. Somehow I wanted to be the one playing and not just watch. I finally tried twitch just for the heck of it and I found out why a lot of people spend so much time on there. Be able to watch new games that come out or just classical games that you missed or haven’t played yet. I always wanted to make videos of the games I play as a way to do walthroughts and show others how to do something specific. [Read More]
