KOF13 trial scripts


- These are all done from starting position. If it doesn't work once due to micro stutters, press Select to restart before reactivating the script.

- Before using, please map your inputs as follow, or you'll need to change the scripts yourself:

LP = F / HP = G / LK = H / HK = J

- For best results, make sure the game runs at constant 60fps. KOF13 has a bug in which it will not run at full speed, so try reducing resolution if the framerate dips.

- If you can't activate the script, try windowed mode, or disable compatibility mode/run as admin, as these settings might interfere with AHK.

- If a trial isn't listed in these scripts, it's because it's very easy and I did it manually. If you still need it no matter what, please post your request in the comment section.

Quick white balance fix for video recording on DSLR using AVISynth

Many DSLRs, especially entry-level ones like my D3400, don't have Kelvin White Balance as an option, so you will most likely need to fix WB in post. With still images, it's pretty easy to fix using the camera brand's software (Nikon NX-D or NX Studio in my case). However, with videos things become a lot trickier. If you already have Adobe Premiere or DaVinci Resolve installed on your PC, it's easy. But if you just want something lightweight and free, you can just use AVS.

Useful AHK scripts for KOF13 achievement farming

Since KOF has much harder executions than any fighting game franchise, farming achievements can be a pain, especially anything related to Neomax and their cancels. To deal with that, I've written some scripts that will help accelerating achievement grinding. These will come in handy when farming "Do sth X times" or target missions in Arcade mode to unlock Saiki.

Why your inverter fridge isn't as power-saving as you might think

If you've replaced your refrigerator in the last few years, you probably got recommendations from sellers and friends/relatives alike to get an inverter fridge to save power. With continuous technological advancement in home appliances, it does sound convincing, but is it actually true? Well, in theory it does, but with typical use of fridge, it's no more than a marketing stunt. Now let me explain in details.

[Review] VE Monk Plus earbuds: Surprisingly good for just $5

Early last year, my Samsung Galaxy Note 4 OEM earbuds were showing signs of dying after more than 4 years of daily use (it had sound crackling when listening to just about anything), so I decided that I need something to replace it. At first I was eyeing upon the Sennheiser MX400 II (costs 220k VND) because I've heard of its indestructibility. However, after talking to someone on Discord, I decided to give the VE Monk Plus a shot. I had never used any VE product before, but since the price is so cheap and the guy was saying good things about it, I thought it wouldn't hurt much to give it a try.
