Louise cosplaying as Taiga

Louise cosplaying as Taiga

Currently halfway reading its 2nd volume (novel). And I must say…

“Anyone that said she’s combination of Shana and Louise must have their head’s screws loose.” </exaggeration>

I mean, how in the hell, she (Taiga) have almost no resemblance with Shana and have most of Louise’s trait.


  • Calling her (destined-to-be) boyfriend ‘dog’
  • Lazy
  • Classy
  • Dangerous
  • Tsun2 90% of time
  • Crybaby
  • A (or S) -class zettai ryouiki
  • Etc etc.

Its anime’s character design looks fine to me btw. Dunno why some people complain about it.

I just realized…

…that Diablo II patch 1.12a added capability running the game without the need of CD.

From the changelog:

– If all required Diablo 2 ‘.MPQ’ files are installed on the hard drive, the game will no longer require the CD to play.

For users that originally performed a ‘Full Installation’ and wish to run without the CD, all ‘.MPQ’ files should be copied from the Diablo 2 CDs to the Diablo 2 directory. Most users will only need to copy D2Music.mpq from the Diablo 2 Play CD and/or D2xMusic.mpq from the Lord of Destruction CD.  Mac users will need to copy these music files and rename them to ‘Diablo II Music’ and ‘Diablo II Expansion Music’ respectively.

Anyone who did not perform a ‘Full Installation’ will need to re-install from CD again to ultimately play without the CD. In this case, a ‘Full Installation’ is required, followed by file copy step noted above.

Which is a good thing. Especially because it basically remove the CD protection. 😛
