VRoid is a very powerful tool that we can get completely for free, no subscription or additional costs are required unless we want to purchase some custom content available online.

    FlowScape Tutorial (Part 2): How to import Models from DAZ Studio

    It’s been quite a while since I posted the first part of the FS tutorial. In the previous article I explained some Blender basics and how to load custom models from external sources like Sketchfab directly into FlowScape. The awaited second part is finally here and this time I will illustrate how to convert and import figures from DAZ Studio despite their over-the-top quality and general mesh complexity. Big thanks to Mark Irissarri for requesting this recently!

    DAZ Studio Figures inspired by Video Games

    DAZ Studio is getting more and more advanced in the professional field, allowing 3D creators from all over the world to make outstanding artworks and animations thanks to the huge variety of content its archive has to offer. Between Daz3d and Renderosity you can explore an ample library of custom characters and assets that you are allowed to use freely in any of your creations, even for commercial purposes (unless you want to make a game, in that case you’ll need a specific license). If you look closely you will be able to spot a bunch of models that were evidently inspired by the most popular video games.

    Obey Me! – Review Update & F2P Guide

    Back in February 2020, when the Obey Me! app was still relatively new, I posted my full review for this RPG Card Game developed by NTT Solmare. Considering the most recent game implementations, I realized that my original post could now be considered slightly outdated and misleading for newcomers regarding the gameplay. For this reason I am giving you an updated version of said post along with a small free-to-play guide based on my personal experience, which may help you getting started.

    Detroit Become Human VK_ERROR Fix(es)

    Did you purchase the PC version of Detroit Become Human and find yourself unable to play the game because it either freezes or crashes as soon as you start the game?

    Upgrade from Windows 7 to 10 (Legit Free Method)

    When it comes to upgrading our system, there might be multiple reasons preventing us from switching permanently. When Windows 10 got distributed for free, I missed the chance to take advantage of the limited offer at the time because I was still very fond of Windows 7 and how stable it was. There were too many reports from Microsoft users experiencing crashes or general failures also involving the same programs and games I was running myself, thus I decided to opt out and wait for as long as I had to… it just wasn’t worth the risk to me.I honestly do not regreat that choice to this day and I…

    Best Halloween Desktop Visuals

    We are reaching the end of September already, which means that Halloween is now around the corner. This is a quick post I’m making in relation to my previous article about Desktop Visuals for gamers featuring Rainmeter and Wallpaper Engine, two great customization tools anyone can use to create outstanding graphic combinations, either static or animated. If you enjoy decorating your place at this time of the year, how about giving your PC/laptop a proper makeover as well?

    Desktop Visuals for Gamers

    It’s not a secret that, as a gamer, I have developed a weakness for visuals and aesthetics in general. I recently decided to finally take a step forward and upgrade my 5 years old PC from Windows 7 to Windows 10 (I may actually make a separate post about this topic, as I’ve pulled my hair for a week trying to make the migration work properly) and I felt like I needed a fresh change without affecting my system more than I already did. Rainmeter and Wallpaper Engine are absolutely perfect when it comes to desktop makeovers and no registry modification is required for their functionality.

    Detroit: Become Human PC Review

    Detroit: Become Human arrived on PC in December 2019, but I took some time to test it out properly due to the many problematics that seemed to affect the majority of players after release. Now that I completed my second run of the game on laptop, I can properly review the technical aspect along with the narrative side. Please note that this is related to the Epic Games version, I can’t speak for the Steam one although I assume things will work the same way. Moreover, this review is not entirely SPOILER free, so beware all ye who enter here!
