How to save FFXV snapshots to PS4 Capture Gallery

Although the Day 1 “Crown Update” added the ability to share the Snapshots that Prompto took to our social media, there’s no way I’m going to share all 150 (and counting) snapshots to Facebook in one-go.

So when I was going between actually doing that and taking screenshots of the snapshots, I realized that if you do the following, you can save a copy of a snapshot to Capture Gallery without it going to your Social Media:

  1. Navigate to the snapshot you want to save
  2. Press the “Share” button
  3. Select “Yes” for the confirmation of “Share this photo?”
  4. Wait for the PS4’s Share Screenshot interface appear (just appear, you don’t have to wait for it to finish loading)
  5. Press the “Back” button
  6. That’s it! There should be a copy of the snapshot in your Capture Gallery’s FFXV folder

I’ve done this to save all the snapshots to PS4 and then delete them from the ingame album so I have more space for Prompto’s better photos (he takes a lot of crappy ones). I also did this to save snapshots before I load a save, because there are some photos that won’t be taken even if you run the exact same thing.

Remember to check your Capture Gallery to make sure you have the photo there before deleting the ingame one! Happy photographing!

Neko Atsume Store in Hong Kong!

Spotted this Facebook post on my wall and I’m so super envious of the fans living in Hong Kong now!

Look at those faces in 3D smiling at us~~ So cuuuute!!

Apparently it’s the second time a limited-time Pop-Up store for Neko Atsume has opened there. The first time was in February, and this time it’s until the end of August. Those who are interested and living in the area, do head over to the official Facebook page for more details.

I really hope they come to Singapore one day!

FFXIV Moogle Beast Tribe quest prerequisites

Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward’s patch 3.3 added a new Beast Tribe Quest, Moogles & Dragons, that is for the Disciple of Hand classes. And since it’s the adorable (but sometimes infuriating) Moogles, it’s obvious that I won’t go without it. But I didn’t do all the Churning Mist moogle side-quests, so this is coming in real handy right now.

The top comment in the reddit thread has further details as well, so hop over and take a look.

To everyone planning on starting the Moogle beast quests at the launch of 3.3… from ffxiv

Silly mistakes not to repeat when making cosplay props #2

Really need to stop making stupid mistakes. This one cost me a lot of time cleaning up after it.

Handle fabric dye in places which are super easy to clean in case of mishaps. And water soluble packet means don’t handle with wet gloves!

The dye packet’s packaging started dissolving in different spots and before I realized, there’s a hole at the bottom and I got fabric dye on my bedroom floor. Good thing I was very close to the bathroom when it happened.

The only good news is that the purple looks like the color I was going for after all.

Silly mistakes not to repeat when making cosplay props #1

A lesson to my future self, a reminder in case my memory cleared its own cache again:

DO NOT use brown marker on white surface to outline shape that needs to be painted with gold (or any) acrylic paint.

Use whatever marker is closest color available. Heck, go outside and buy a marker of the same color (and get some fresh air). The reason is because the brown was a huge pain in the butt to cover up, and managed to dye the area near it orange or pink, depending on the paint. It severely lengthened the painting process.

Bye bye, Miku clock :(

Due to many mobile browsers and Chrome (and Vivaldi, by extension) not supporting Flash anymore, I’m removing the Miku clock on the right side-bar to avoid showing you guys the ugly blank or “not supported” rectangle. 🙁

As I’m currently way too busy, I’ll see about adding something else there in the future.
