    The law firm statement makes the matter even more confusing. It starts by describing the vulnerability but then quotes the Epic page that addresses password dumps in general. Here is the tweet Aemony mentioned: AnotherGills has done a great job at writing for the news section but there should be more research done before re-posting news or outright fake news from the biased Steam-centric communities of reddit. The scope should also be widened. The recent Steam vulnerability that's only been patched in the beta so far is much more severe than the alleged Epic Games vulnerability in that it allows a malicious game creator to gain access to the owners' computers, not just one account from a link that needs to have been clicked on, yet we're not seeing big titles or much publicity for that.

    I signed up for an account just to say "Thanks!!" for patching and adding support to Heavy Rain for Ultrawide screens. I'm running a 3840x1600 monitor and your 3440x1440 patch worked great!

    I'd drop support for any game, even Half-Life 3 if it went Epic Store exclusive. Sadly didn't preorder this, so I can't refund 😎

    I'm not surprised. The people who cared enough for the series to pre-order probably wouldn't be bothered enough by a storefront to drop the game.

    Well, that can be the reason, thank you. So ironic, cause i downloaded the pirated version especially to check if the game has 21:9 support... 😂

    The issue appears to be specific to pirated versions of the game, which is not unexpected. Here's what you get otherwise:

    Unpack the archive with software like 7zip, then patch the main game exe with the tool. This will remove the letterboxing (black bars) from the game, resulting in more vertical FOV than ever before. There will be some vertical stretching of the menu and subtitles. Support with a donation.

    I am still waiting for more details about this lawsuit coming out since... well... it seems as of this moment to be baseless. Nowhere from what I can tell have neither Check Point nor Epic Games concluded that the vulnerability they found and fixed was ever exploited by anyone (I believe Tim Sweeney on Twitter mentioned the opposite, in fact), which makes the number of affected users by that vulnerability in specific a big 0. Fixing security vulnerabilities before they're found and exploited "in the wild" should never result in a class action lawsuit, as it seemingly have done here... Even Check Point's own report on the vulnerability uses phrasing such as "could have allowed a threat actor" as they also seemingly did not find any indications that the vulnerability was actively being used and exploited by bad actors. Beyond that, users whom have lost access to their accounts most likely lost that access due to a lack of appropriate security on their own part, through e.g. reusing passwords, or being affected by malware on their PCs, etc, which all are outside the ability of Epic to prevent. Honestly speaking, in terms of preventive action, Epic Games takes a much more active approach that I've publicly seen from organizations. Checking accounts against known password dumps online and resetting the password for those affected is a slowly growing occurrence in IT, but I am not aware of any corporation within the video games industry that does this yet, except for Epic. So yeah... We'll have to see where this goes, but I don't expect it to go anywhere since seemingly nobody have actually been affected by the vulnerability this whole class action lawsuit seems based around...

    TL;DR The Youngblood Tweaker (YBT) allows additional tweaking of Wolfenstein: Youngblood. This includes options to scale player and enemy damage, adjusting the amount of head bobbing, disabling various HUD elements and more. Quick start guide: Extract the file dinput8.dll to your main game folder. For example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Wolfenstein Youngblood\". Start the YoungbloodTweakerGUI.exe set the bindings and other settings as desired Start the game like you would normally, for example directly through Steam Features The Youngblood Tweaker (YBT) is a small mod that offers additional options for Wolfenstein: Youngblood. The goal is to fix issues that prevent people from enjoying the game, as well as to provide quality of life improvements. The mod is still in its infancy with very limited functionality. It may be extended and improved based on user feedback in the future. Its features include: Adjusting player and enemy damage Disabling various HUD elements, such as enemy healthbars, objective markers, minimap or the crosshair Adjusting the amount of head bobbing when moving or turning Forcing the FOV outside the range that can be set ingame Disabling rendering of the fog Instructions Supported Versions This mod is designed for the latest, fully patched versions of the game and might not work when used with older or otherwise modified executables. Steam (international version) Steam (international demo version) Install The mod does not make any permanent changes to the game or to Windows and can easily be removed. Extract the file dinput8.dll to your main game folder. For example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Wolfenstein Youngblood\". Start the YoungbloodTweakerGUI.exe set the bindings and other settings as desired Start the game like you would normally, for example directly through Steam Note that even though the GUI is for configuration only and does not have to be running for the mod to work, it can be used together with the 'Reload Config' binding to adjust options of the fly. Update Perform a regular installation and just overwrite any existing files Note that an update retains all configured options unless they have actually been changed or removed in the new version. Uninstall Remove or rename the dinput8.dll from the folder of the game. Known Issues There are currently no known issues. Additional Information Antivirus Software Since this mod consists of an executable DLL file that uses "hacking techniques" such as injection and hooking, it could be classified as malicious by antivirus software. In that case, it might be necessary to add an exception rule to the scanner. If you lack the trust in random people on the internet -- and I would not blame you -- feel free to use a meta online virus scanner like VirusTotal to verify the file. GUI Requirements The GUI requires the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7.1 to work; which should already be installed on most systems. If you are having problems starting the program, you can download the required version either through a recommended Windows update (Windows 7 and later) or at Microsoft here. Loading Other Fixes/Mods/Injectors To increase the compatibility with other mods or injectors that are using a wrapper DLL, this fix offers two methods for remote loading of additional files. Note that there might still be compatibility issues between the different fixes, mods or injectors that have nothing to do with the loading process. File method: The mod will load another dinput8.dll automatically if it has the name dinput8_Remote.dll. Just rename the DLL you want to load accordingly. Using this method will lead to an error if the renamed DLL is not itself a dinput8.dll. Folder method: The mod will also automatically load all DLLs regardless of their names in a dinput8_Remote sub-directory. Just create a corresponding folder in the install directory of the mod. This is the only way to load multiple (conflicting) files. Input Bindings The GUI allows the binding of an action to an arbitrary combination of keys and buttons on the keyboard, the mouse or an XInput compatible controller. The system purposefully does not restrict conflicts, so multiple actions can be bound to the same key. Key Names: In case of the keyboard there might be a discrepancy between the key that was pressed and the one that is displayed. This is because the names are automatically translated based on the keyboard layout by using a Windows function. However, the mod always uses the physical keys as they were used during the creation of the binding, independent of the name that is displayed. Modifiers: Modifier bindings can be created by just using the corresponding key combinations. If you bind one action to Space and another another to LCTRL + Space and a third one to LALT + LCTRL + Space, only one of them will be triggered when Space is down, depending on the state of LCTRL and LALT. The system is not restricted to the usual modifier keys ALT, CTRL or SHIFT. Any key or button pressed before another acts as a modifier for the next one. Note that the order of the keys or buttons is only relevant during the binding process to distinguish bindings with the same modifiers. In the above example, Space could be held down and the other actions triggered by pressing LCTRL or LALT afterwards. Contact And Support If you like this mod and want to support the development or show your appreciation with a donation, you can find more information on my website. There you can also find out more about other mods that I have done and means to contact me if you have a question, want to provide feedback, bug reports and suggestions.

    Proposal: VR Template - Add VR Driver VorpX

    Looks great so far! I've made a few tiny changes to improve readability. The glossary page can be used to add all sorts of information you feel is relevant, so feel free to add whatever you think is missing. When the next header ("==Two equal characters creates a main header==", "===Three creates a subheader===") is added to the page it will automatically get a table of content added to the top of the page as well.

    While Microsoft’s Flight Simulator series has been dormant for many years, the franchise is finally making it's long-awaited return. In a fashion similar to Microsoft’s handling of Halo: The Master Chief Collection, an Insider Program was established for Flight Simulator. Members of the Insider Program will be eligible to apply early next month for the title’s upcoming first preview build. The general public will be eligible to apply in late August. There is currently no information regarding the actual launch date or window of the preview build. Are you hyped to play the MIcrosoft Flight Simulator preview build?

    Hot take: EGS is a ploy funded by the console manufacturers (at least a certain Japanese one who donated 6 games) in an attempt to kill the PC platform, now that it's at an upswing, and for the first time matching console revenue. What better way to divide the userbase, piss of paying customers to justify piracy, and giving developers second thoughts about PC when they can just make games only for consoles?

    What's newsworthy about this? There are games on Steam built on Unreal Engine, protected by Easy Anti Cheat. There is DualShock support in games released for Windows. Valve were involved in the development of Vive, so it's natural that it relies on their component. Oculus devices do not require SteamVR, and no devices require the Steam client itself.

    Time limit between edits

    Click on "X changes" on your watchlist to see a combined diff from all the latest changes made. In this case the user basically didn't use the Preview option properly, and was new to the wiki, and experimented to see what worked until finally giving up. There actually are edit limits configured already, and the time difference between each tiny edit (approx. one minute for each) shows that they most likely hit those as well.

    MobyGames

    I disagree that Wikipedia is more useful, since I already wrote in the first post that many games or game developers don't have a Wikipedia article, but Moby Games does. Try finding any information about Brilliant Digital Entertainment and their games like Cyberswine and all you get is what is on Moby Games (probably one of the reason Telltale gets credit for innovation in adventure game genre and online episodic content while BDE did exactly the same things already back in 1997, people completely forgot about BDE). Not only does Moby Games have covers that most people here use when making articles, but they also have system requirements listed which I use when these obscure games don't even have them in readme. In the end it doesn't matter now, since they don't want to cooperate.

    CD audio tracks

    1) This Wiki lists a lot of technical aspects of games like DRM, graphics and sound API, physics middleware, etc... so listing that the game uses CD audio tracks for music and/or sound effects would make sense. 2) Some older games can have issues playing CD tracks on modern Windows, so you need to use a custom winmm.dll, then rip them to OGG format and then put everything in the game installation folder (some old games are re-realeased like this on digital platforms, for example Extreme G-2). This info would be useful on pages of games with that problem.
