    This is a great idea. Notes about VirtualStore redirection are now displayed for Windows paths pointing to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, %WINDIR%, and <path-to-game>. Feel free to suggest any improvements to the wording or other path types that need notes.

    It's nothing personal. It's just business. Why are people getting worked up over which store a game initially appears in? We need some strong competition to the Steam store, and Epic is finally providing it.

    Proposal: Restructure articles with 'Overview' to replace Key Points, Essential Improvements, General Information Key points was designed to be a way to add statements that would be quantitatively verifiable and individually moderated easily. It occupies the top of the article and is the first thing visitors read when viewing an article - it implies that this is the headline top information. However it currently suffers from an issue where people fill out lines for the sake of having a line, and includes information that is far from ‘key’ eg {{++}} Game uses 7.1 audio. Or to include {{--}} negative points just to 'balance' out the top of the article, where it is not warranted. Secondly I would like to push PCGW to contain more Wikipedia-like information that is qualitative, with a focus on technical and quality of life information. Back in 2012, I was afraid we wouldn’t have the policies and manpower to correctly moderate large blocks of text. However I think we are in a good position to do this now with a healthy active moderation team. This would also vastly improve its 'SEO' quality and push PCGamingWiki articles from average slot of 11th space on Google to possibly the front page. This will attract visitors and editors and make the entire site more useful. Here's a draft General section example (no 2nd level header), that would go at the top of the page: General information - instead of a long rambling list of everything, we move this under the Infobox. Rename to "Support Resources". Remove things like wikis, official websites - this section should be for things like 'authoritative threads', forums, etc. where users can expect to find answers to technical questions about the game.

    Version v1.1

    167,572 downloads

    This fixes the following issues with Gothic and Gothic II on Windows 8 and later: Window border visible in fullscreen mode Low frame rate in fullscreen mode Extract anywhere and run install.bat to apply these fixes. Any previous versions are automatically replaced if present. This works by applying the following compatibility fixes to Gothic.exe, Gothic2.exe and GothicMod.exe: ForceSimpleWindow (hides window border) DXPrimaryEmulation -DisableMaxWindowedMode (fixes frame rate isssues) This fix does not remove Gothic's default frame rate cap; refer to its page for a separate fix for that issue. This fix will also work with Gothic Multiplayer (other mods that change the executable might not be affected).

    Version 3709.4

    549 downloads

    Download the archive, unpack it with 7zip or similar software, then point the patcher matching your aspect ratio at \TSCGame\Binaries\Win64\TSCGame-Win64-Shipping.exe within the game folder. This will match the FOV to the default 16:9 vertical value and remove the pillarboxing from the dialogue scenes. Tested at 2560x1080, 3440x1440, 3840x1080 and 5760x1080.

    I have remade this patch using the clean, DRM-free GOG version executables, if anyone wishes to play at higher frame-rates without DRM data, here is the patch: http://www.mediafire.com/file/9307hi3nkyhrdke/FPS_Fixes.7z/file Also, to the uploader, if you could update your upload with these files it would be very appreciated to me.

    How is this any different than pre-order DLC, CDs, or DVDs that are exclusive releases to a particular retailer? Or TV shows/movies that are available only on a specific streaming platform? What I'm suspecting is that Epic is giving the publisher a higher percentage of sales in exchange for a exclusive release window. I don't see anything that says that title XXX is never going to show up on Steam, just not at release date.

    Crowdfunding in a nutshell. At least Shenmue 3's Kickstarter doesn't seem to have promised a Steam copy on the page back in 2015 from what I can tell.

    Tim has already said he doesn't want to get bogged down with additional APIs for EGS. Its why they already got caught uploading steam user-data without consent and why they should already be sued sky high... aside form that, this is clearly a move to protect Tim's bottom line, no other reason for it - since he doesn't care about consumer or other companies.

    Version 2.30.0.0

    222 downloads

    This is an hex-edited executable for the Steam version of Dungeon Siege 2. It should fix the missing cursor when playing fullscreen on Windows 10 v1703 or later. The only downside is that it creates a bug when playing in windowed mode where the camera rotates way too fast when using middle-click (see https://steamcommunity.com/app/39200/discussions/0/1643164649220168122). Just use the Steam executable if you wish to play in windowed mode. Credits to Killah for originally making this fix for the Broken World expansion

    This have been on the backburner for a while. I usually just tell users to use /row/developer with an appropriate second parameter instead: {{Infobox game/row/developer|My Famous Game Studio|Microsoft Store}} The porter row is currently tied to what PCGW sees as OSes, and trying to fit in /platform “ports”/ on that row is probably going to be a headache. It also isn’t as relevant information since the work done is typically far less minor (usually just involves replacing one library for another, or hooking up calls to replacement calls, etc). I recommend we simply formalize the use of the developer row in the few cases where another studio worked on one of the platform releases.

    Thank you Rose! It worked perfectly. Really appreciate you creating this and making it available to the community! Edit: I should add that I'm using it for 3440x1440 and there's not screen cutoff that I can tell. Everything appears to be scaled perfectly.

    Metro: Exodus is now available on Microsoft Store - a surprise given all the hoo-ha about Epic Games Store vs Steam exclusivity.

    Microsoft is running the MixPot promotion again: watch the Xbox E3 stream on Mixer (from the Mixer Xbox channel or through the app) and sign in with a Microsoft account to get free games/DLC. See the Xbox MixPot FAQ for details. Last time it was only games/DLC for consoles, but since they will be talking about the PC this time there might be some PC goodies.

    The Music Volume mod doesn't work if you use the JP VO as is. To make it work, you hafta edit the .bat file and remove all mentions of "/usa". Big copypasta derp right there 😛

    This particular software seems to be picked up by antivirus software for some reason. An alternative 'Borderlands Advance Settings' on this github may be a better alternative, as it has been updated more recently.

    If we are to track the Early Access date of a game, I'd also include a third date in those cases where the developers actively cancel an Early Access game. For example, the developers of a game I purchased in Steam Early Access, The Kindred, announced on 20 January 2018 they were pulling the game from Early Access and purchase as they could no longer develop the game nor easily find an interested developer to continue development.

    This is interesting - I don't see why we couldn't do this, we could also have a counter to show how many days a game is/was on Early Access before being released. It's a good indicator of the development cycle of a game e.g. Star Citizen.

    What is this? This fix lets you change the FOV of the singleplayer campaign, including the size of the weapon model. It is simple to install and use and comes with a GUI for easy configuration. Overview Description Despite being a decent PC version, the singleplayer of Modern Warfare Remastered lacks the option to set the FOV. Even though the default FOV is not as horrible as in other Call of Duty games, it still makes the campaign unpleasant or outright unplayable for some people. This fix aims to fix this issue by providing an easy and convenient way to set the FOV for the game. Features Option to set the vertical FOV to almost arbitrary values Option to set the FOV scale of the weapon model Simple to install and use Easy to configure via a GUI and ingame bindings Important: This fix is specifically designed for the singleplayer campaign and will not work with the multiplayer version Instructions Supported Versions Steam Important: This fix relies on the layout of the executable. Although it uses techniques to make it more robust to modifications of the game, it might have to be updated when the game is patched Install The fix does not make any permanent changes to the system, the game or the configuration of the game and can easily be removed (see below). Extract the XInput1_3.dll and the MWRSPFovFixGUI.exe files to the main folder of the game. For example "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Call of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered\" Start the MWRSPFovFixGUI.exe to configure the fix as desired Start the game like you would normally, for example directly through Steam or Big Picture mode A few additional notes on the installation: You should hear a FOV Fix loaded message on game launch when the fix was loaded. This sound can be turned off in the config The GUI requires the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6.1 and the Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable package; both of which should already be installed on most systems. If you are having problems starting the program, you can download the required versions here and here Uninstall Remove the XInput1_3.dll from the game's main folder. Configuration To configure the fix you can use the GUI application. Remember that you can hover over almost any option with the mouse to get an explanatory tooltip. There are two FOV settings. The vertical FOV Base and the FOV Weapon Scale factor. The effective FOV is calculated by multiplying these two values. The scaling factor also affects the way the weapon is displayed in addition to the camera. By default the game uses a base FOV of 65.0 and a weapon scaling of 1.0. For a 16:9 27 inch display I am using a FOV Base of 66.0 and a FOV Weapon Scale of 1.15. Note that the settings can also be adjusted while in the game by using the corresponding keybindings. Additional Information What You Should Know Since the fix consists of an executable DLL-File, I could have put any harmful shenanigans in there. You just have to trust me that the file is clean. If you don't -- and why should you -- feel free to use a meta online virus scanner like VirusTotal to verify the file. Be aware however, that because the fix uses "hacking techniques" such as injection and hooking, it could trigger anti-virus software without being harmful. Known Issues There are currently no known issues with the fix. Contact And Support If you like this fix and want to support the development or show your appreciation, you can find more information on my website. There you can also find out more about other fixes that I have done and means to contact me if you have a question, want to provide feedback, bug reports or suggestions.

    Back in year 2006, had to come up with nickname for IRC-Galleria, hip popular finnish image site, similar how facebook is now and I'm still being teased when I made note "first day on IRC" as I didn't use actual IRC for years after that statement. Super Mario combined with birthyear = Mario92. Also IRL name and that both start with M, so it felt natural for some reason. As started to use more of the amazing internet and even got one at home with SUPA FAST 2G trough Nokia 6151, that nickname seemed like it was in use in some places as it's quite generic. Solution was finnish slang. So now I mostly use: - Marioysikax, Mario, ysi = 9, kax = 2. - Mairo, Pronounced as "My Ro" as it quicky became a nickname of the original nickname when used VoIP in games and such. For some reason when people read the name, they misspell it as "Mario" when referring to me. Usually not being foilhat, so I do use IRL name in many places. That names origin should be obvious thing :p Also seeing some pattern here, most common reason seems to be "needed nickname, combined stuff".
