TESV:Skyrim - Way of the Pugilist

This guide for the Elderscrolls V: Skyrim, and how to use Unarmed Hand-to-Hand combat to defeat your enemies. First things first, you may want to work on these Skyrim Skill Perk trees.

Light Armor
Heavy Armor
Enchanting
Smithing

Now, since the Core game without any Mods (Vanilla Skyrim) doesn't have a "Hand-to-Hand" or "Unarmed" Skill Perk tree; the trick is to work on the Heavy Armor tree until you unlock the "Fist of Steel" skill perk. While not really researched to extent, I believe that the Glove or Gauntlets Armor weight is also the Base Damage dealt; the Gauntlets also deal an average of x2.0 damage for Sneak Attacks. The Light Armor "Gloves of the Pugilist", is the only item in the Vanilla Skyrim that has the "Fortify Unarmed" Enchantment on it. Which gives an additional 10 Damage to Unarmed Attacks.

My New Rock Candy PC Gamepad

Recently, I bought an new USB wired Xbox 360 compatible controller for playing Steam Games on my Windows 10 Pro 64-Bit Desktop. I bought an PDP Rock Candy Controller in Red for $20 usd at my Local Walmart. I love the PDP Gaming Accessories, they are basically the best Third Party Gaming and PC Accessory Manufacturer in the Market. And I owned an PDP Afterglow AX.1 Wired USB Xbox 360 Gamepad, which I had zero problems with. And as of Windows Vista, the Device Drivers for the Gamepads (Xbox 360) has been built-in to the Operating System. It's called the: "Microsoft Common Controller for Windows Class". You will still have to download and install the drivers if you still run Windows XP (SP2 or Greater) tho. (The driver has built-in support for Xbox One Controllers on Windows 10) And, The Xbox 360 Controllers are not supported on any Windows Operating System older Windows XP. I personally bought this new Rock Candy Gamepad exclusively for playing "Final Fantasy XIV Online: A Realm Reborn".

Mupen64 Plus for Windows


Mupen64 Plus is an excellent N64 Emulator that is also cross-platform on Windows, Mac OSX, and Linux. (Also Android and FreeBSD) The only problems that I have had on Windows, was I couldn't configure my Xbox 360 USB gamepad to work using my favorite GUI frontend, M64Py. So, what I did is Save all of the Mupen64 Plus core files to my Hard Drive; then I used an Qt-Based Mupen64 Plus Launcher, to configure and edit the gamepad to my specific Hardware.Then I installed M64Py as my Default frontend, while also keeping "mupen64plus-qt.exe" installed in the "Program Files (x86)" folder. That way, I have two different GUI solutions to configure Mupen64 Plus.

Download Links:

Download: Mupen64 Plus-Qt Launcher (GUI Launcher) (Useful to Edit Emulator Configuration)
Download: M64Py GUI Front-End (Python-Based) (My Personal GUI Front-End of Choice)

Other Downloads:
Download: PyQt 5.5.1 (Requires Python 3.4)
Download: Python 3.4.4
Download: SDL version 2.0.4 (Stable) (SDL ships with Mupen64 Plus; but M64Py requires SDL2, just put the DLL file in the Core Files folder)

Misc. Downloads:
 Download: Mupen64 "InputAutoCfg.ini" Controller Config file (PDP Afterglow AX.1 X360 Wired USB Gamepad; .7z Archive)

Genuine Windows 10 Activation

Starting with Windows 10, Microsoft is using what they call "Digital Entitlement" to Activate copies of the Windows 10 Operating System; the easiest way to do this is just to Upgrade for Free from an Genuine Activated  copy of Windows 7, 8, or 8.1; You have until July 29th, 2016, to take advantage of the Free Upgrade. If you prefer a nicer Clean Install of Windows 10 instead of Upgrading that too is now also possible as of the most recent Windows 10 build this November or December. All you have to do is use your Genuine Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 Product Key; when Prompted by the Installer. That Key acts like your new Windows 10 Key. Important thing to remember about Windows 10 Activation is that you don't need to keep track of the Product Key; because after Installation, Microsoft registers information about your Computer's Hardware and BIOS. Thus, it will automatically Activate upon the first PC boot to the Desktop. (If you are connected to the Internet) This also means that for instance if Upgraded from Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate your PC will be registered on Microsoft's Servers with an Windows 10 Pro License Key. (There's no Windows 10 Ultimate) So, you'll have to do a Clean Install of Windows 10 Pro, to remain Genuine.

Current Windows 10 build (cited: Wikipedia): Version 1511 (OS Build 10.0.10586.36) (December 17, 2015; 24 days ago)

Legal Notice: I don't condone Software Piracy; but if you need an Genuine copy of Windows 7. Try researching "Windows Activated r2" on Google.
