    Steam are releasing a new Remote Play Together streaming option. This will allow one Steam user to stream their game with another remote Steam user, and for them to play the same 'local' game together. The feature was announced on the Steamworks website, which is a developer area, however the announcement has been shared publicly: This kind of streaming online multiplayer feature has been available through other methods such as Parsec.

Use Vsync or external FPS limiter to limit FPS. This game is designed to work at a constant speed, so you must have a stable FPS, otherwise you will notice a slowdown or acceleration of the game speed. Example for 120 FPS with Vsync or external FPS limiter [FPS] Limit = 120 Unlock = 1 Example for 144 FPS with Vsync or external FPS limiter [FPS] Limit = 144 Unlock = 1 [RESOLUTION] Width = 0 Height = 0 This setting can override game's horizontal and vertical resolution Example for 1920x1080 resolution [RESOLUTION] Width = 1920 Height = 1080 [GAMMA] ColorCorrection = 1 Value - 0 disables color correction Use this setting to get more natural colors [TEXTURES] ShadowMapSize = 1024 Increase this value to get better shadows quality 256 - min value 8192 - max value Lighting = 384 Increase this value to avoid artifacts in some cases 256 - the min value 8192 - the max value

    Hello fellow Steam users! According to media reports and studies, only few single-player games are actually played through by their owners on Steam. Many players don't even finish the main story or main content - let alone other things. In my Bachelor thesis I deal with the possible reasons for this in terms of media consumption. Therefore I ask you to help me by participating in my online survey - it only takes a few minutes. As a thank you I will raffle a 25 € Steam voucher among all participants. You are welcome to share the link to the survey with others. I thank you very much in advance. Here is the link to the survey: https://forms.gle/3qhQ4dweBBzioufH8 Greetings Jan

    I have no idea who is completing these single player games these days as every kid I see is playing some kind of survival/F2P multiplayer shooters, or all the adults I know barely have time to game at all with work/kids in the way. When I was younger, I'd get maybe a handful of games a year and I'd play an explore every single nook and cranny and extract the maximum value out of them. I'd play my shareware version of Descent over and over again or complete Monkey Island multiple times. Collecting games was a joy because each game would be worth dozens of hours of replayability, only a handful were released every month. These days with all these free singleplayer games released on Humble or Steam or on Epic Games Store has really oversaturated the market with thousands of quality singleplayer game experiences. However I'm still collecting them (at least up until recently) because my monkey brain is still thinking as a child - 'free games' (or games on very low sale prices) seem like they are unlimited value. However with my hundreds of games unplayed, it's clear that these collections are never going to be played/completed. The worst is when enhanced editions or remastered editions keep getting released. For example Metro 2033 sits in my Steam library unplayed because I know that if I play it, I'll be getting a worse experience than the Redux version. However I can't bring myself to ever buy the Redux as I have too many other singleplayer FPS games to complete first.

    Proposal: Game Executables

    I can see this information being used for firewall opening/closing. However I’m not sure it’s important enough to put near the top of the page - I suspect it’s a valuable but niche piece of information. Perhaps it could fit inside the Network section which will also contain port numbers, or the Other information section. Apart from the name of the executable, what else can be done with this kind of data?

    Will Google Stadia succeed? Poll

    I have no interest in a platform that is absolutely hostile to modding, making something as simple as ultrawide hacks impossible. It might succeed to some degree but Google are indeed known for eagerly abandoning their projects unless they're hugely successful.

    New uploaded images not displayed

    It's due to aggressive caching on the images. Normally, selecting More -> Refresh on the article should solve these issues but sometimes you also have to select More -> Refresh on the images themselves, and then after that select More -> Refresh on the article. If the issue still occurs after that, it's usually a local web browser cache issue and so F5 or Ctrl+F5 in the browser while on the page will take care of the remaining issue. So: More -> Refresh on the newly uploaded images themselves, and wait for the page to be refreshed. More -> Refresh on the article the image is included in, and wait for the page to be refreshed. If the old image is still visible, hit F5 or Ctrl+F5 in the web browser to refresh the local cache of the browser. I've fixed both articles now, so the latest version of the images appear on both.

    Creative ALchemy

    There's an even newer version 1.45.20 available now too (newer than the one above from SirYodaJedi): https://fichiers.touslesdrivers.com/61925/Creative_ALchemy_1.45.20.zip Oddly enough I can't find this on the Creative website, but it seems to be legit, all files have a Creative digital signature etc. Seems it was released around May/July 2019. Apparent changes (from this page: https://www.touslesdrivers.com/index.php?v_page=23&v_code=61925&v_langue=en)

    Those sources have been corrected since: Aspect ratio is equally broken in Steam and in RGL versions - Vadim just forgot to move SilentPatch out of his Steam directory (which fixes aspect ratio). It doesn't have any more music cuts than the Steam version - that was just poor wording. This release is nearly identical to a Steam version, but Rockstar attempted to fix game's inherent mouse issues - the key word is attempted, as their fix is partial at best and if they spent more than 5 minutes playtesting this release, they likely would have noticed.

    On September 17th, the High Court of Paris passed judgment over a legal battle between Valve, and a French consumer rights group known as UFC-Que Choisir. The court ruled that, (according to a translation by Windows Central), publishers and hosts of digital content must allow the reselling of digital copies of games on the Steam platform: While Valve intends to appeal this ruling, currently, they have three months to change their policy before being in violation of French law. While this would currently only impact Steam users in France, this can have ramifications for digital game services as a whole. If Valve's appeal fails, other services in France may be forced to follow suit in order to compete with Steam's newfound software freedom. Furthermore, these services may adopt this new business model in other territories in an attempt to reach a degree of parity. Still, until the case finishes development, only conjecture exists on the matter.

    The goal of PCGamingWiki is to fix PC gaming. Did you ever have a game that just wouldn’t run? Spent days looking for fixes, only to find abandoned forum posts with nothing more than “nevermind, fixed it”? Our aim is to make that a thing of the past. One of our newest and most ambitious goals is to cover every single major PC game on the day of release. To do this, we have developed an Assignments system to distribute review codes to volunteers who complete our wiki fix articles. However, many review codes are still unclaimed and we need help - we are looking for more volunteers to dedicate their time to help complete our wiki fix articles, and in return receive the reward of the games themselves. You can see the full Assignments table for all future and past games too. We have assigned 413 games so far, and the count increases every day. Our assignments have led to the creation of ultra-widescreen mods for games like Heavy Rain, World War Z, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night and FOV fixes for games like Team Sonic Racing and The Sinking City. If you would like to help, we would love to hear from you! Don't know much about wiki editing or testing PC games? Don't worry. You can join our Discord (#articles channel) and ask for feedback and help, as our community would be more than happy to assist. To apply for an Assignment, read the general information page and please apply for any outstanding Assignments or other games you are interested in. Where do our review codes come from? We try to reach out to every games publisher of every notable PC game to ask for review codes. Many publishers include us on their lists, but sadly we are often ignored or rejected because we are too small or we don't produce 'real reviews'. However, we would argue that our wiki fix articles are a very valuable service for PC gamers. In situations where we can't get review codes from the publisher, we will buy them out of pocket using our funds (primarily from donations and Patreon funds). We are also lucky to be in partnership with GOG.com who will step in to provide game keys, and Gamesplanet who provide account funds to help us make purchases.

    AA, AF, Vsync and forcing through GPU

    I think that anything requiring actions outside of the game itself, regardless of how mundane and/or safe those actions are, should be considered as "hackable" and not "true". But I guess that decision is ultimately up to the higher authroities of this website.

    Original file: http://steamcommunity.com/app/17300/discussions/0/864945401070748061/ This is the 64-bit binaries for Crysis. It allows the game to be run as a native 64-bit application, providing various benefits and enhancements. Instructions Extract the contents of the download to the Crysis installation folder. Run the crysis.exe file in the newly added folder (Bin64) to play the game. (Optional) Create a shortcut of the EXE for the Desktop for easier access. For the Steam version, there is a way to make the Steam client launch the 64-bit version by default. In the Crysis installation folder, rename the Bin32 folder to Bin32.bak and rename the Bin64 folder to Bin32.

    With less than two months until release, EA has finally revealed the system requirements for Respawn Entertainment's Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order. The specs were posted on the game's Origin store page: While most of the specifications are fairly run of the mill for typical triple-A releases, many are shocked at the extremely high recommended system memory, a whopping 32 GB of RAM. Hours later, EA updated the specs, lowering the recommended memory to only 16GB of RAM. Ben Walke, Global Community Lead for EA released a tweet on the matter, simply stating: Neither EA nor Respawn has given a comment as to why the initial recommendation was 32GB of RAM, and how or why they were able to reduce it to only 16GB of RAM. Also, there is currently no information regarding what settings and/or frame rate these recommended specifications correlate with. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order launches on November 15, 2019. Will you be picking this game up, regardless of the recommended specs?
