    • Yes this makes sense to put as a Windows Store property. Not sure about the UWP as a separate platform.
    • Most hosts are acceptable as long as the content is verified as not containing viruses/malware. I have no qualms with uploading demos to PCGW as you have been doing, we are not currently hitting any practal space limits.
    • What are acceptable hosts to link to game demos? It'd be tedious to upload so much, and some may simply be too large for us.
    • Do you have fast startup enabled/disabled? Try toggling it. I would personally just buy a new SSD and install fresh Windows on it to check whether there's a hardware issue as well. 
    • References should go in the "direct3d notes" field, and not the "direct3d versions" field, of the API template. The "direct3d notes" field is limited to only supported values, as anything else will screw up the backend connections. Only remove listings if you've actually confirmed that they do not support DirectX 12 on your own, or you find a concrete source mentioning that it doesn't. PCGW generally assumes that edits are accurate despite a lack of reference, so to remove ones that are "suspicious" you'll have to find a concrete source confirming the suspicions. Feel free to add {{cn}} in the notes field to flag that a citation is needed, though.

    • This is a big thank you to the community who make PCGamingWiki work - the editors! Who can believe that we are 6 years old now?

      We are giving away Steam Gift Cards to members who have provide great contributions to PCGamingWiki over the last 2 years (since we last did a big anniversary celebration).

      The following will receive a £25 Steam Gift Card:




      Garrett (£50)







      Suicide machine



      If you are on the list please accept my Steam friend invitation as I'll be sending the gift cards through there. If you feel like there's a notable member who go missed out and deserves recognition, in the shuffle please contact me on Discord and also add me on Steam.

      Technically the website was founded slightly later in the year, but I've brought this forward because Steam Gift Cards are best spent at the Steam Winer Sale, which is due to start today. Merry Christmas!

      And thank all of you for bearing with my absence over the last year. I would like to let everyone know that I have returned to active admin duties and will be overseeing PCGamingWiki's development going forward. We are things in the pipeline, including hiring a new server admin, creation of a new screenshot comparison tool, an improved blog format (coming soon), more community features and articles. And one of the major projects I hope to achieve in 2019 will also be a wiki article overhaul.

      Exciting stuff ahead. Here's to another year of fixing PC games!
