Playing Diablo 3 with an Xbox 360 Controller

By: goukijones May 17, 2012 | 6862 Views | 7 Comments

Nothing a little determination won't over come. After trying multiple programs and testing out tons of configurations. GoukiJones finally achieved greatness, by killing the skeleton king with an Xbox 360 Controller. Here's how:

Everybody has seen the story about the Xpadder. That Jimmy has posted that same story all over the internet. Well the Xpadder is $10. I'm cheap. Plus I just paid full price for Diablo 3 that has been in development for years and should have come with a simple feature, such as controller support. Never mind all that, Xpadder is $10 and I wasn't having that. I did find a free version of Xpadder, but it wouldn't even install and giving me pc safety warnings. I searched the internets and came across a few different FREE options. Free options are always scary, but I was willing to risk it.

First up - Pinnacle Game Profiler

Let me be clear. I have know idea what I'm doing with computers and random software. I installed this and set up the best I could. When I tried Diablo, it was a cluster bomb. Some of the commands worked, but I still couldn't get certain buttons to do what I wanted. And the analog sticks were all over the place.

There is no simple set up for anything like this in the Diablo 3 game itself. In fact you can change all of the key and mouse commands in the Diablo 3 menu, but you CAN NOT change the two main actions, which are left click and right click. That totally screws with these controller set ups.

Second program - Joystick 2 Mouse

This has a slight learning curve, but I watched some Jimmy on YouTube and figured out from there. This program has a lot of trial and error on just trying to figure out what button is what on the controller, according this program. Again, not impossible, just time consuming.

This is a great program. Remember, I'm running both these at the same time. For some reason if I turn off the Pinnacle Game Profiler, I can't even use the controller in Diablo 3. I have all my favorite buttons mapped to the controller in conventional methods, like select will bring up the map, start will pause the game. A is left click and B is right. Sweet stuff. I played and I made a video so you can see.

Special notes.

You need to download this special profile for Diablo 3 for Pinnacle Game Profiler. Found on THIS THREAD on the Pinnacle Game Profiler Forums.

You can download both programs from different sites like, tucows and stuff. Google it Jimmy! Let me know if any of you try this out. Let me know what's up on the Diablo 3. Vote, Comment and Share. Thanks!

FFXIV Unspoiled Node Hoppers Guide to the Eorzea

By: goukijones Dec 11, 2013 | 455 Views | 2 Comments

How to make your way across Eorzea gathering the most valuable items from Botany & Mining.

600+ GP is optimal for maximize your gathering. You want to use Unearth II before your first swing. Hit the appropriate slot you want to mine & then pop Solid Reason/Ageless Words after 1 or 2 more hits. Then use Deep Vigor/Brunt Force for the final hit to guarantee that 100%HQ at the end.

You’ve got 3 hours to get to the Unspoiled Node you want. Even if you are swinging at it while the 3 hour mark expires, the Node will disappear.

GP ticks. 1 min Eorzea time =  5GP. So 300 GP an hour.

Personal Gear Stats:
Mining
Gathering - 347
Perception - 347
GP - 601

Botany
Gathering - 350
Perception - 345
GP - 594

Eorzea TIME (ET) - I use a 24 hour clock in my guide to keep order.

0100

Dragonhead - Darksteel Ore Slot 3
-> 386 (Cost to teleport)
0100 Hawthorne Hut - Crawler Cocoon Slot 4

Mor Dhona - Botany
*These clusters always appear in the same order. All unspoiled nodes always appear in the same slot. You don’t need to spend 300 GP each time searching for the item you want. Just memorize the slot. Here’s an image shortcut.

*If you go after Darksteel Ore & Crawler Cocoon, you’ll have to be super fast to get back to Mor Dhona for this node. You definitely can’t use GP for the clusters. You can just wait to 5AM for the next 1.

0500

Mor Dhona - Botany

(DOWNTIME)

-> 181 *Favorite
0900 Camp Drybone Gold Ore Slot 6 (Burgundy Falls)
-> 427
0900 Camp Dragonhead Spruce Log Slot 6 (Providence Point)
*If you’re fast enough you can get a Cluster Node in Mor Dhona. It will disappear at 1200.

1300

Mor Dhona - Mining (28X$Y12)

Wineport - Dzemael Tomato 

(DOWNTIME)

1700

Mor Dhona - Mining
*this time can be stretched to 1900 to spend more time during DOWNTIME collecting whatever. Then just stick around in Mor Dhona for 9PM Cluster Node.

2100

Mor Dhona - Mining

(DOWNTIME)
-> Beginning

Other than Gold Ore, Crawler Cocoon, Darksteel Ore & Spruce Log(probably after housing is added) I don’t see any value in chasing the other stuff down. It’s cheaper on the MP than you wasting your time collecting something other than Shards, Crystals & Clusters.

FFXIV ARR Crafting Cross Class Ability Tier list & Guide

By: goukijones Sep 11, 2013 | 2949 Views | 1 Comments

With the right cross class abilities you can manipulate HQ items 3-4 levels ahead of you. You can make a ton of money while leveling up. Read my biggest crafting secrets right now. Watch exclusive video of my techniques in always get HQ items.

I'm buying HQ raw materials & HQing them into more HQ materials. Any material that stacks to 99 is my favorite to level up on. For example. I'll make HQ Dew Thread from HQ Diremite Web I purchased at the market place. There's always some random Jimmy that post a couple real cheap. I buy those until I have a stack of like 60+ & I'm ready to craft. 

Here's a look at what I think our the most important crafting cross class abilities in FFXIV. 

#1 Tricks of the Trade (Alchemy)
It randomly gives you 20CP back. You get this to pop 5 times, that's 100 CP back. Spend that extra CP on another Master's Mend & get 3 more chances. 

#2 Careful Synthesis (Weaver)
Guaranteed. This ability guarantees progress. It'll get yuu slightly less progress than Basic Synthesis, but you can figure out what that number is going to be right away & decide where & how to use this ability. Plan you entire synth around Careful Synthesis being the last thing you do.

#3 Rumination (Carpenter)
This ability also gives you CP back & does not cost any durability.
           "Removes Inner Quiet effect and restores CP proportional to the number of times control was increased."
Turn on Inner Quiet immediately. Wait for a chance to use Tricks of the Trade & move on. Watch any of my crafting videos for this technique.

#4 Hasty Touch (Culinarian)
This move will improve quality with no CP. BUT it's 50/50. I'm not sure if Steady Hand effects this ability. Either way, it is the 4th best ability to choose from. Imagine you're down to 17CP & 20 Durability. Use Hasty Touch for the hell of it. It's a free chance to increase quality.

#5 Rapid Synthesis (Armorer)
Just like Hasty Touch, this ability is 50/50. I really don't know what to say about this ability. It might get you out of a jam if you ever miscalculate a synth or make a mistake. It rushes down progress at 250%.

#6 Waste Not (Leatherworker)
This cost 56CP. I don't like anything that costs CP because I only want to use that for Basic Touch.

#7 Manipulation (Goldsmith)
This cost 88CP! Can't use this, Master's Mend & get 3 or more Basic Touchs off.  It just doesn't work. I can't afford that CP.

#8 Ingenuity (Blacksmith)
             "Lowers recipe level to current level for the next five steps."
I'm already HQing stuff 4-5 levels ahead of me. You can't do stuff 10 levels ahead of you, so why would you ever need this?

Check out my crafting videos coming soon.

Weaver Level 21-23 HQ Diremite web into HQ Dew Thread
Goldsmith ...
Carpentry ...

Special thanks to XIVDB.com.

Beating turn 2 of Coil is pretty simple. If you don't mind dealing with enrage mode & have 3 healz.

Team Gouki & [FC] TAW down turn 2 in 1 shot w/ a new strategy. Visit Gouki.com & TAW.net for more info. This aired live on Gouki.tv. Coil streams every Weds & Saturday.

Basically what's going on here is we wait until ADS gets down to 1 click & he will go into RAGE MODE. At that point he won't do anything else, but spa AOE's. So we just spam AOE heals & burn him down with DPS. Pretty easy, I was kicking myself for not trying other ways after wiping on this stupid balls for weeks. 

Thanks for watching.

A look at the Live Action Yakuza 4 Hostess Club Girls

By: goukijones Feb 2, 2011 | 5000 Views | 8 Comments

Yakuza 4 just got way more interesting. This story was originally for a new video from Sega about the Hostess Clubs in the game. It's turned into a monster about these beautiful Japanese girls, who are the stars of Yakuza 4 Hostess Clubs.

I saw this video this morning on YouTube and of course Japanese girls catch my attention in real life and virtually. So I have to check it out. First of all, the Yakuza game series is one I have yet to experience. I don't know why, maybe just never had the right feeling for it. The new version is looking more and more interesting to me. And not just because I can now go hang out in a Authentic -albeit virtual- Japanese Hostess Club. Yakuza 4 is seriously trying to be a Japanese style GTA.

This first video is from the American Sega YouTube channel.
