W00t! So I finally broke down and booted Windows on one of my 2 linux boxes and played some StepMania. It was awesome, I haven’t played since the end of December when came to visit.
Soft pads are teh suck, I miss the hard platforms we had in the apartment, even though the buttons kept cracking. I can’t go higher than light mode, otherwise the pad moves too much. It happens sometimes on light mode, too, but only ’cause I’m a fat-ass 🙂
Also, one of the designers of Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 is smiling evilly, knowing that his automatic update message box keeps interrupting my game every few minutes to “remind” me that it installed some updates, but I haven’t restarted my computer yet. Well duh, the reason I didn’t reboot yet is because I’M BUSY PLAYING A GAME!! Eventually I just gave in and rebooted.
I also ordered a really HID-compliant USB adapter, so in 2 – 3 business days I can play on my Mac, and the Windows box can go back to running MythTV again.
