WELCOME to the personal home page/blog of Matthew La France. Please enjoy your stay.


Argh-! This is such bullshit! I messed up with Kiyomi again. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. :( Regardless I've managed to edit a lot of her text. Still, I wish I could get to her final few scenes. I guess I'll keep going with one of the other girls and see if I can't mess that up. :P

I was planning to see Resident Evil 3: Whatever this evening, but due to a forgotten commitment was unable to. I'd still like to see it when I have a chance. I did play a little bit of Halo 3 however. I played a few death matches with my friends. Over-all positive experience, though I am having quite a bit of trouble adjusting to the new X-button-swapped-to-right-bumper thing. The x-button now does some alternate grenade deal which I didn't really figure out yet in the 3 death-matches I played. I'm looking forward to spending some more quality time with this title.


I got bitched at for not posting on so long so I figured I better write something. I've gotten a second wind editing the WtPC script. I've played through with Shouko and Reika and edited the script for the major scenes (and most minor ones) with both girls. I still have a lot to do, but it's good progress. I've hit one problem which is that there are no good walkthroughs for the other girls, so it's a little more hit and miss. I tried playing through Kiyomi's ending (which incidentally is the only one I'd beaten in Japanese without the use of a FAQ) and managed to mess it up along the way. I got to the end and was like, %@#! now I have to do it all over! >.<

BTW: I found the funniest damn thing. Actually, it was more some folks on romhacking.net that found it, but I liked it and I'm passing it along. http://www.spoonyexperiment.com/games/ It's a guy doing video "rants" about (mostly) really bad video games. He has a good sense of humor and makes some good points, funny comments, and hyterical musical montages/voice-overs. It doesn't really hit you over the head at first, but there wasn't a single one of these I watched and didn't laugh out loud at some point. His stuff on Final Fantasy VIII is particularly inspired.


I've calmed down at Firefox a little since my last post which was a culmination of two days frustration. After staying up all night, I finally put 99% of the issues behind me and kept going with my CSS based version. I feel like it's a bit hard to sell the other designer I'm working with on this method, but it's the one that makes the most sense to me right now, so that's probably what we're going to use. Though there was a lot of frustration, I think it came out well in the end. The customer has some issues with the header graphic, but I think that will be easily dealt with. I won't say it went off without a hitch, but if the worst part was me getting really frustrated with what is generally considered to be the superiour browser, I think I made out pretty well...as long as deadline is met. :)

Haven't been doing a lot else since I really wanted to make this web page thing work out. I got all of Ayane's outfits for herself. Another 10G, yay! I'm working on Helena's now. That night of staying up really wiped me out. I napped the next day but it didn't really make up for it. I think I'm just going to play some games tonight and go to bed. I tried taking another stab at Maison Ikkoku a few days ago, but I could not get Yuusaku's grandma to show up like I was hoping. I think that will make the part I am on in the game easier.
