Well, today I finally managed to do something that I've been wanting to do for the longest time: I installed Windows 10 on my Mac using Boot Camp, then downloaded the Steam client and created an account.
It was a bit tricky, especially since I don't really use Windows a lot, but using the many awesome tips and tricks on here I was able to get it all set up eventually.
So then, I began looking into which mainstream game I should start with and soon came across Skullgirls, which I then purchased and downloaded.
And really, I guess that was probably the best choice I could have made, as it really is totally amazing what the developer has done in order to get this to work with screen readers!
Also, I picked up and dusted off my Logitech Cordless Rumble Pad 2, which I think I received as a Christmas present a very long time ago, but which I have never actually used for anything really.
That setup was very painless and I was excited to see that Skullgirls recognized the controller in no time.
Not sure how most of you guys play this and similar games, but I'm pretty sure that using a controller is much more efficient than using the keyboard, but please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.
So here I am, just managed to complete some of the tutorials, though I'm still not sure how to do any of the advanced moves / combos. But then, I've never really played any such games previously, so I guess that's normal...
I'll probably just have to figure this out step-by-step, but was wondering if there might be anybody on here who may be willing to help me out?
Some tips would definitely be greatly appreciated, or if anybody would be interested on doing a Skype session and doing some online fights, that would be totally awesome.
I could probably just create a lobby and try fighting whoever decides to join, but since I'll probably end up failing horribly, I think I'd rather wait until my skills are a little more developed, haha!
Also, 2 quick questions:
1. Right now, I'm not feeling any force feedback in my gamepad when fighting, even when I'm being hit. Is this the intended / recommended behavior, or is it something that I can / should enable somehow?
2. For those of you who are more experienced playing this game, is it actually possible to successfully battle sighted players online, or would they have too much of an advantage as they'd be able to see the screen? Not sure if this question makes any sense in the context of this game, but I remember playing Audio Quake years ago, where you could also connect to mainstream Quake servers, but killing sighted players was pretty much impossible for the most part.
Well, that's it from me right now!
Thanks for reading my rather lengthy post, looking forward to hearing from y'all! :-)
