These instructions should allow you to install Blizzard Updater and Heroes of the Storm on Linux using Wine. From what I understand these instructions will allow some of the other Blizzard games to be run on Linux as well.
First install wine 1.7.
I ran across this while watching a live stream on Twitch and as I came to find out that it takes a fair bit of Googling just to find the instructions(this has improved apparently). I then posted this screen shot to Miiverse only to find out that even people on Nintendo’s own Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate community aren’t really even aware of it. I figured I should try to help float this information to the top.
Fire up your Nintendo 3DS to get the Mario or Luigi outfits for your Pelico! Here’s how you do it!
First go to your home cart.
Go talk to the Housekeeper on the right.
Select Downloadable Content.
Select confirm/continue on all of the prompts to get to the DLC menu.
Select Gift Area.
Select Item Packs.
And finally grab the Start Pack.
- The Starter Pack contains:
- Mega Potion x50
- Honey x30
- Mega Dash Juice x15
- Well-done Steak x30
- Max Potion x10
- Lifepowder x20
- Ancient Potion x5
- Flash Bomb x30
- Sonic Bomb x30
- Pitfall Trap x15
- Shock Trap x15
- Super Mushroom x6
Now, go to the Market vendor or your item box and make sure you have 3 Large Barrels in your item box.
Go to “The Man” who is the Smithy and he’ll let you craft the Mario or Luigi gear and the Invincible Hammer. One thing to note is that each of the two items required to make the outfit require 3 super mushrooms so you have to pick if you want the Mario outfit or the Luigi outfit or some mix of the two but you can’t have both. Word on the street is that as more DLC gets released we’ll have opportunities to get more Super Mushrooms and be able to have our choice of both outfits.
Here’s to hoping they release Bowser as a monster via DLC. But not all cartoony. I want to see him as if he was a real Monster Hunter style monster and I want Bowser Armor as a result of his drops. That way my Palico can roll around as Mario while I roll around as Bowser. Get on that Capcom & Nintendo!
I don’t give much credit to Nintendo for a lot of things outside of making entertaining games. Frankly they’re terrible about keeping up with the modern state of gaming, by in large, and they’re especially bad at dealing with networking and the Internet. So it seems weird that I’m about to write about Nintendo doing something, arguably, right on just such a subject.
Many a games journalism website has seen fit to highlight the New 3DS’s microSD card slot and the fact that it’s kind of oddly locked away under a bottom cover that requires a tool to get in to. Knowing only this as I’m sure many people will might lead one to believe that this is just Nintendo up to their old tricks. And at first glance you’d be right. If you have a need to physically swap sd cards then perhaps you’re out of luck.
Fortunately if you’re just looking to make a backup Nintendo got smart and tucked away a little trick that makes that microSD card accessible through a network share on your home network.
Under “Data Management” you will find an option for “microSD Management”. This wizard will walk you through creating a network name for your 3DS and a username and password and then connect you to your homes wifi network so you can access the storage on the card.
On your windows PC open a file explorer window and in the quick access icons in the left window pane scroll down to network and click the icon. You should see the name of your 3DS listed. Click on that to access it. If for some reason you don’t see your 3DS listed click on any blank space in the address bar on the file explorer window and type \\MY3DSNAME where MY3DSNAME is the name you picked for your 3DS. This should find and open your 3DS files for you.
Enjoy this tiny slice of Nintendo finally getting with the new(I use the word loosely) networked world. There isn’t much of it to be had.
Honestly the process of flashing the Netgear Nighthawk R7000 to DD-WRT is a really easy, straight forward process. Unfortunately it was difficult to find some place that states it plainly. So here it is. The firmware’s can be found here. http://desipro.de/ddwrt/K3-AC-Arm/ First you need to get a .chk file from the Initial folder found here http://desipro.de/ddwrt/K3-AC-Arm/Initial/. Make sure you’ve grabbed the correct firmware for your model of router. In this case you want the file dd-wrt.K3_R7000.chk That .chk file is an old version of the router firmware. You don’t want to be stuck with that. So you also need to grab the update file. The latest is 24500M but at the time of writing it was exhibiting some issues with the 5Ghz channels being visible/accessible. So far now you want to grab 24345M from here http://desipro.de/ddwrt/K3-AC-Arm/24345M/ You have two choices of firmware in this folder with bittorrent and without bittorrent client. Pick your poison. Flashing to the new firmware will wipe all of your settings! There is also always a slim risk you might void your warranty or brick your router. Not my problem. (more…)
