    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.

    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.

    Since inception, one of the most criticized elements of Microsoft’s Universal Windows Platform is the lack of support for file modification. After many years, it seems Microsoft is finally changing their tune. In the current build of Windows 10, Reddit user Pycorax has found a folder with an interesting name in their Program Files directory, titled “Modifiable Windows Apps”. Microsoft’s official webpage provides more information, shedding light on the folder’s purpose. While modding was definitely possible (albeit difficult) on UWP applications, Microsoft finally supporting file modification will alleviate what is perhaps the most controversial issue plaguing the Universal Windows Platform.

    I guess console players won't have to worry about mouse and keyboard... ...since no one going to buy it on PC anyways.

    XSEED Games has announced that the latest entry in the Senran Kagura franchise, Senran Kagura Peach Ball, will be released on August 14th, 2019. Initially released on December 13, 2018 in Japan, and July 9th, 2019 in North America for the Nintendo Switch, this will be one of the timeliest PC release of a Senran Kagura spin-off. Unlike the previous beat-em up games in the franchise, Peach Ball is an anime-styled pinball title. Peach Ball will be released on Steam with a launch week 10% discounted price of $35.99.

    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?

    Ubisoft has released their latest fiscal report, covering the 2019-2020 fiscal year. The report revealed that their most profitable platform was PC, making up for 34% of their profit. This was followed by PlayStation 4 at 31%, Xbox One at 18%, mobile games at 7%, and the Nintendo Switch at 5%. Ubisoft attributes this success to the release of the PC-exclusive strategy title Anno 1800, as well as sales on Uplay (including games such as Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey). Seeing this development is monumental considering Ubisoft’s views of the PC platform in the past. In 2012, Yves Guillemot (CEO of Ubisoft) had stated that: This was partially used to excuse their (at the time) less-than-stellar support of the platform, such as Prince of Persia’s “Epilogue” DLC completely skipping the platform. These current numbers have clearly painted a much different picture and shows how important PC gaming is to Ubisoft.

    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

    I think it might be a good idea to make some kind of time limit for making edits. Just look at this mess here in history: https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Area_51_(2005) 9 edits in 7 minutes and it seems nothing was changed in the end. Surprising this was not misused by bots or something. It is annoying to check the changes when people go on a edit spree like this with very short edits. Maybe after the third edit in a short time span to block for 5 minutes, like when login in.

    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

    In the area under the game cover art there are links to Wikipedia, SteamDB, Wine... and other stuff. I recommend to add MobyGames there too, since Wikipedia is a general online encyclopedia and MobyGame is basically an online encyclopedia for video games and people often already add the links to it in the general info section. Many old obscure and less known games don't have a Wikipedia page, but I have yet to find an old game without a MobyGames page.

    In my opinion the news section should be more focused on what this Wiki is like fixing games, compatibility issues and that kind of stuff. For example in the past few weeks new versions of nGlide, dgVoodoo and DosBox has been released, I think stuff like that deserves some attention, since these and other tools are very important for many games and you wont see mainstream media cover this stuff. Another example is Microsoft shutting down their games servers that were used on Windows 7 which is now causing serious issues for W7 users like some random games not starting and rundll.exe stressing their CPU. Here is a discussion about it on GOG. I think stuff like that are perfect for website like this to cover. https://www.gog.com/forum/general/old_games_not_launching_and_eating_100_of_the_cpu_on_windows_7/page1 These are some recent examples that I can think of.

    Typical corporate hypocrisy. And yet they want to still wage war against Valve and Steam. Greedy sods.

    In an attempt to minimize the chance of this happening, PCGW now recommends users who create archives containing such files to password-protect the archives using a standardized password. This should prevent browser-based automated filters from triggering on the archives as they will be unable to scan their contents. Post-download it is expected that regular AVs will scan and flag relevant files accordingly during or after the extraction of the archive. As part of this change, a relevant disclaimer about PCGW not guaranteeing the safety of any files hosted on the site have been added below the download button as well, to better reflect the proper community-contributed nature of files hosted here.

    MobyGames

    MobyGames have declined my proposal of mutual linking - not citing any reasons. I don't really see much value in linking to them, they don't really provide any useful information for PC gamers - Wikipedia has much more useful information. I would prefer to dedicate resources to more compatible websites, e.g. I was looking at ProtonDB.

    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.
