Star Wars Frenzy!

Mod of Hope
Star Wars The Force Unleashed Ultimate Sith Edition is unplayable big time =_=
Thanks to some jackass i get pump up for nothing trying to play the game O_o
Well..Hope is not over yet..
Remember the Knights of the Force Total Conversion for Jedi Academy?
Yup, There's 2 Sub Mod for Knights of the Force, Dark Lord's Hunt and The Sith Apprentice
Both of these mod are somewhat related to The Force Unleashed

In The Dark Lord's Hunt, You play as Darth Vader himself during the attack in Kashyyyk.

For More info, Go to

In The Sith Apprentice Mod, You play as, well, the Main character from the original game The Force Unleashed. This is a fan-made Mod which include mix of missons pack.

There's no official site for this so u gonna have to find them on your own =/

There's a mod community which focus on developing a total conversion for Jedi Academy which is based on The Force Unleashed. Mod name call Jedi Academy Unleashed. Looks very promising and I cant wait to get my hands on that XD

For More Info, Go to

Happy Gaming & May the Force Be With You

Back With Updated News

I got bad news and good news

The Bad News D=

Ghostbuster The Video Game can't be played, it won't start up and pop up error msg saying 945GM has no Vertex shader and Pixel Shader 3.0..Guess I think analyze the game properly before i went to buy and tested it..what a waste <_<

Same goes to Dead Space..popping error msg on the start..

Guess there's no ghouls or ghost busting for us in the meantime..

The Good News =D

I know it's a bit outdated to say this but..
Command & Conquer 3 Kane's Wrath is playable with no problem.. We got Epic Units!

As long as you set the shader detail to medium..there wont be no crash at all..



This mod is Splendid..Although the current version includes 2 faction, it does give a quite punch when it comes to warfare battle..

Zeppelin O.o..Not Friendly..Lesson from RA3 Soviet Kirov Airship

The return of Scud Storm in action..The good old dayz of C&C General

At any should check it out at

Time to get back to some commanding and conquering..I'll see you guyz in the battlefield!

Busy Life

An apologize to all..
Eversince i got my new job last month..I had less time to do what i want..

Half studying and half working is very energy and time consuming..leaving me no time to test games out there or helping any request problem =/

So because i had a job, i am able to buy games instead of download them(which is time consuming)
But still next game i wanted to try is as following:
  • Ghostbuster
  • The Sims 3
  • Dead Space (Been trying to test this a long time but never got the game completely)
  • Upcoming Starcraft 2
Eversince i got my new phone (Sony Ericsson G705), I've been playing the java games all the time which is the only entertainment i had on the go..but still, I still love playing PC game..just that i have to settle stuff for these coming 3 months..

Tom Clancy's HAWX

Let's get to the bottom line, Tom Clancy's HAWX is an air combat game set in the world of Tom Clancy's Universe (The storyline is somehow related to Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter). Intensive dogfight with cutting-edge technology makes HAWX one of the best arcade style air combat game.

HAWX introduce a E.R.S. (ENHANCED REALISTIC SYSTEM) which helps you to become ace pilot of the future. It allows you to monitor over all situation in the HUD which include radars, tactical map, incoming missile detection, weapons trajectory control and so on. E.R.S. also allow you to issue orders to their squadron.

The E.R.S. will guide you a path to either lock a target
or avoid an incoming missle when activated

What's really cool about HAWX is the Assistance Mode feature. In Assistance Mode, you'll get the help from E.R.S. but Switching to Assistance Mode off, you will be brought to a stunning third person view and gain advanced dogfight maneuvers while increasing risk since E.R.S. will be disabled in this mode.

Issuing Orders using Voice Command can be handy and cool

There are about 50 most famous aircraft to unlock and choose throughout the game. HAWX enable player to experiance through the campaign solo entirely or jump in to 4 player Co-op mode and PvP challenge up 15 players in multiplayer.

You'll be gaining experience throughout the game to
level up and unlock more jets and firepower

Tom Clancy's HAWX Trailer

For more information about the game visit:

HAWX is playable thankz to Alvin's information, Credit Goes to Him ^^
You'll need 3D-analyze to run the game.
Open up your 3D-analyze, Click "Select" and locate the HAWX game folder then selct the "HAWX.exe"
Tick the "emulate HW TnL caps" and click "Run"
You'll be good to go ^^b

I'm getting around 23 FPS with this setting:
Resolution = 800x600
View Distance = Medium
Environment= Medium
Texture = High
Heat Engine = On
DDR = On
Others set to low and off

I have created a Hamachi Server dedicated to 945GM HAWX gamer

PCSX2 Playground

Firstly, sorry for the delay cause i was still testing the emulator configuration for better result.

With the release of PCSX2 Playground, Light has shined away all those nightmarish FPS we're getting over the past version of PCSX2 and it show a big performance improvement! Yes! We Intel 945GM user finally get our chances to play PS2 games! ( This is also apply to 965GM user as it was tested there too)

Although it is not stable yet(heck, this is the best damn thing already that exist!), I was able to play Final Fantasy X!
The normal FPS (Frame Per Second) is 60.00. Most of the time, the game would normally run below normal game speed. Sometime even worst (70% above FPS drop due to graphic effects)
Here are some screenshot with FPS monitoring:

During In game

During Battlemode

During Cutscene

After days of configuration for best result, I will post a guide here on how to configure for best result that i found:

Warning! Any harms done to your computer are strictly you're own responsibilities! Do not blame or acuse me or anyone if you are following this guide! You have been WARNED!

You'll will need at least Core 2 Duo Processor as it depends on it

First thing first,
1) Download the emulator from the official website, click here
The current version of PCSX2 Playground I'm using is 1.0.0395 (Credit goes to all the PCSX2 and PCSX2 Playground Developer Team)

2) Read the official guide for the knowledge you need to know before you follow my configuration guide. click here

3) Alright, now download the graphic plugin call "GSDX", the latest version for now is 0.1.14, then extract to the plugin folder found in the PCSX2 folder. (make sure u have the latest Direct X installed) (Credit goes to "Gabest". click here)

4) Now let's start configuring: (I'll be guiding on how to configure step by step)
a) Graphics:
- Choose "GSdx 890 (MSVC 15.00, SSSE3) 0.1.14" for Core 2 Duo user only, SSE2 for Single Core and Duo Core user, SSE4 for Quad Core user
- In the Graphics Configure Option, check the "Native" box

b) Sound:
- Choose "PE.Op.S. SPU2 1.9.0"

c) First/Second Controller:
- "Lilypad" is good for keyboard while "SSSPSX PAD" is good for joypad/controller

d) Cdvdrom
- "Gigaherz's CDVD Plugin 0.7.0"
- In the Cdvdrom configure option, choose your source drive of where your game is located.

e) Dev9, Usb, Firewire
- Leave it to default

- Allocate your BIOS from your BIOS folder in the PCSX2 folder
- DO NOT ASK where to get these files!

The configuration is completely setup, now for the extra setting to boost performance!

5) In the COnfig tab, u will see other options like CPU, Gamefixes, Speedhacks and Advanced. I'll go through it one by one.
a) CPU
- check the "Multi threaded GS mode (MTGS)" box (only for Core 2 Duo and Quad Core user)
- check the "Limit" box on the right in the Frame Limiting Section (This is due to the Speedhack function, it accelerates the normal game to 2x/3x more frames, therefore limit speed option is a must to control the game speed if it accelerates too fast)

b) GameFixes
- only use this if you're playing the games that are listed in there

c) Speed Hacks
- Check the option that are listed:
- Disable VU Overflow
- Disable Underflow
- Disable Extra VU Flags
- Disable Extra FPU Flags
- EE Sync Hack
- IOP Sync Hack
- EE/IOP Sync Hack
- Escape Hack

d) Advanced
- In EE Recs Option, Roundmode choose "Chop/Zero" option
- In VU Recs Option, check both "Flush to Zero" and "Denormals are Zero" option

Hint: This configuration is based on Final Fantasy X (Use "pcsx2_Pg_VM" executable file for better performance)
If you configure it properly then Congratz and Enjoy!

P.S. I will try other PS2 games and see how other games work out. Discuss around in this post for any question or feedback of your own findings =)

Bad news is i cant online much to update myself o___o
Good news is i digged up few games that i play back in the old dayz to try whether 945GM chipset can play them or not

These games i found playable :
