Day 4: Oh crap, what happened to day 3?
Yeah, change of plans from yesterday. Hung out with a friend most of today and yesterday, where we played games on my various consoles. Woo hoo! Aaaand to get back on track, I did, in fact, attempt to get Oblivion running. And the results are mixed.
So yeah, first things first, installed Oblivion. Tried to launch, and as I expected, crash. Install Oldblivion, crash. Tinker a little bit, run! Huzzah! Yes, I did get Oblivion to launch and I managed to create a character. And yes, I managed to run around the tutorial. Without any mods, it's slow. Non steady frame rate.
Even so, with some cheating, I get through the tutorial, about to step outside. About to witness the glory that is Cyrodil. I open the gate, aaaaaand it was to much for my poor netbook. Crash. Huzzah!
I haven't given up of course. Just don't really want to mess with downloading mods and such to improve performance. So... I guess I'll try that on Monday. I have to much to do on Sunday.
Tomorrow: I go make money.
The day after that: Mods mods admins and ban hammers.
