PSP Frustrations

Almost 6:00. Bleh. I really want to get up to EB Games sometime in the near future to pick up a guide for Twilight Princess, because I'm absolutely stuck at the dungeon in the Snowpeak area. I found the pumpkin, and got the map marker for the second key position, but try as I might, I can't figure out how to get to it. The only thing I can think of is that in the room where you basically only have small beams covered in ice to walk across (right after the first room where you use the cannon), there's a Clawshot target on the second level or something, but if there is, I haven't been able to find it. Well, either that, or there's some way to beat the monster that "breathes" ice at you, but I'd assume you have to use the cannon for that, and without the metal ball, the cannon is useless.

Thinking about it though, provided things work out, we get our pay stubs this Tuesday coming up, yes? Now, while I don't actually work on Tuesday, there's nothing stopping me from just dropping by to pick it up, so I could do that, just to find out how much I would be paid on Thursday. From there, we could go to the bank right across the street from Taco Bell, where I could get gas money for Mom and Dad, as well as, oh, $50 after that. Then we could head out to EB Games to get the guide, and if they didn't have it, over to Wal-Mart, because last time we were there, I saw it. If they don't have it either, well, I suppose I'll just have to work through it as well as I can with a guide on the computer :p Rather funny, when you consider that before I had a somewhat steady source of income, I preferred to use guides from the internet, as I didn't have the money to go out and buy them. Of course, that's also because the Gamecube's in a different room than the computer, and although I'd really like the ability to have it hooked up to the computer itself, I don't know how to :\

Anyways, before heading home, we could also run by Staples, so I could pick up a USB floppy drive, then all those loose ends would be tied up. Really, it'd make quite a bit more sense to just pick up my pay stub whenever I have to work after Tuesday, then go out, buy the floppy drive, and wait 'till Thursday to find a guide for Twilight Princess, seeing as I'm going grocery shopping this week, and we're going to be right out by there anyways.

So, today's been pretty boring once again. Spent a good hour trying to figure out how to get CIntro working on my PSP, and I finally did. Had a pretty cool gameboot set up, but no matter what I did, it started up, played the movie, but then didn't do anything else. Thank God for recovery mode :3 Strange thing was the only entry in the startup .ini file was "xmb", which is supposed to, once the gameboot movie plays, go straight to the PSP's XMB, but nothing. I was tempted to try replacing it with the entry to load IRShell, but that would've been more inconvenient than anything. As well, if IRShell's loading right from a cold boot, then you would think that exiting to the XMB would be impossible, because it never actually loaded. Then again, IRShell does have the option to load the XMB, but that also retains IRShell in memory, so you can switch between the two using L + Select, so chances are you wouldn't be able to do as much as normal, due to lack of memory. Meh. CIntro's all uninstalled now, so there's no longer any worry there.

Anyways, I've got enough to do before I have to leave for work, so this is done for now.
