And aside from the VN don't forget the very famous Melty Blood fighting game. Not only did it have a few different titles to it (expansion type of thing), it also made it to different platforms.
Well, bowei seems to do more Americanized gaming so I guess it can't be helped that he's totally clueless outside his English VN repertoire when it comes to Japanese games.
Did not look at all the different parts but...
Legitimate concerns it is.
But put it this way... you gotta start somewhere or you'll never learn it.
In fact, today installing a PC is so much simpler.
Motherboards are better labeled, cables are also better labeled.
Compatibility is better documented on company spec sheets.
Windows 7 will install most of the drivers if not at least ensuring you can boot into the system.
Windows 8 installed ALL my drivers for me...
As long as you cross-check the parts and their specs sheets on newegg you can pretty much already tell if your computer will have basic functions. As long as you don't mess too much with BIOS settings I think building a computer nowadays is pretty well almost plug-and-play.
As long as you're not using AutoDesk products then there will likely be little to no software compatibility issues you cannot solve with modern software, or by using compatibility mode/administrator mode.
The Chrome thing is annoying though, and I think FireFox by now is fixed so I can actually go back to it. Rich Text Editor works on FF AFAIK.Edited by kalbee - 11/23/12 at 7:28pm
