Machinarium: Juegaso Tripero

enero 21, 2010

Poco o nada he jugado desde que me propuse dejar esa mala vida, pero los screenshots tan triperos fueron más que mi compromiso de alejarme de todo consume almas: Machinarium, un juego de rompecabezas (textual, un poco difícil sobre todo para el tostado que escribe) con una historia un tanto trillada pero un modo de juego y unas gráficas geniales (insisto, triperas). No les cuento más, sólo pruébenlo, ahhhh y el soundtrack, increíble, mucho más buen trip (Aunque otra cosa es jugarlo mientras suena la Radio Bemba Sound System para puntos triperos extra, jajaja)

Reproducir Archivos FLV en Quicklook de Mac OS X

junio 25, 2009

Desde All Forces llega un excelente truco para poder reproducir archivos FLV con el Quicklook del Finder de Mac OS X

Para consegurilo debemos seguir los siguientes pasos:

1. Instalar Perian
Perian es un componente gratuito de Quicktime que proporciona soporte a varios archivos de video que no puede reproducir por defecto, como divx, avi y flv

Descargar Perian 

Perian Disk Image

Una vez instalado, Perian deberia aparecer en el Panel de Preferencias del Sistema.

Perian Preference Panel

Con Perian instalado sigamos con el siguiente paso:

2. Instalar el Plugin “FLV Quick Look Genertor”

Descargar FLV Quick Look

FLV QuickLook Generator

Descarga el plugin FLV Quick Look Generator, descomprime el zip y coloca el archivo flv.qlgenerator en la carpeta  ~/Library/QuickLook/ del usuario y del sistema (en mi caso la puse primero en la del usuario y no funciono, luego lo coloque en la del sistema y funciono perfecto, no se si debancolocarse una copia del archivo en las dos carpetas). Si no existe dicha carpeta hay que crearla, pero lo mas probable es que ya este ahi.

FLV Quick Look

Como paso final debemos reiniciar el Finder o cerrar sesion y volver a ingresar, ahora solo seleccionamos un archivo FLV y oprimimos la barra espaciadora para reproducirlo en QuickLook
