    This is the file used for fixing issues with Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition when run under Wine on M1 Apple Silicon devices. I extracted this file from Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable Update 3 RC using homebrew cabextract. Specific instructions on how to get Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition to run on CrossOver/Wine come from this video:

  4. GOG have invited PCGamingWiki to host a 'partner page', these are similar to ones featured here: https://www.gog.com/partner/DigitalDragons2020 https://www.gog.com/partner/gueststreamerweek https://www.gog.com/partner/warhammer We have been asked put our own partner page together including 30-35 games from the GOG catalogue. This will be promoted on the front-page of GOG and in their social media. My thinking is that we'll include games that are improved by our articles, for example: https://www.pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Metal_Gear_Solid_2:_Substance https://www.pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Star_Wars:_Knights_of_the_Old_Republic_II_-_The_Sith_Lords Etc. What do people think, and can everyone add some suggestions so that we can make 35 games.
  5. @Dandelion Sprout As Aemony mentioned we have a lack of manpower, so I invite anyone who has time to help create the Windows/Linux ARM properties. As a stopgap what you could do is create a manual table in say a new page like List of Windows ARM games. This will be a useful resource and once it is populated we can gauge the popularity and usefulness. Then, once the property is implemented we can port the manual list to the pages in proper templates. Thanks @Aemony for implementing the macOS ARM property, it is a good implementation despite your self-depreciation, as the new Mac ARM is basically incompatible with macOS/OS X games that are x32 so ARM feels like a very different playform anyway. I've just got my MacBook Air M1 and would be interested in beefing up our support pages for this. Could we make a 'List of games that natively support macOS ARM'. Also I am struggling to figure out which games are Rosetta 2 and which are native M1. For example I refer to this Google Sheet I found online, but this lists World of Warcraft being the only natively supported game (beyond other iOS games) - is this really the only one?
  6. Thanks for the responses all - I decided to get Minecraft Java edition based on the responses here. However once I got to the website I realised I actually purchased Minecraft in 2014. However, I had never migrated my account to the newer Mojang account system and couldn't login or reset my password. I emailed support and chased several times - it took from August 27th to October 7th (41 days!) to finally get my account back. Obviously we live in strange times but 41 days is really really long time to be locked out of a game - especially one of the most popular games on the planet. Anyway I'll try to report back to see what my son thinks of the game! Right now he's in the middle of a Plants vs Zombies 1 phase but will try to introduce Minecraft to him very soon.
  7. Yes I'm happy for this to be switched to #556db3 Although it does make everything look the 'same' on the page, but at least it is consistent.

  9. EA Play is the new subscription service which replaces of Origin Access as of August 31, 2020. The biggest new change is that players now have a choice between subscribing to the service on either Steam or Origin. However the choice is nowhere near equivalent despite the fact that EA Play costs the same amount on both platforms: $4.99 per month / $29.99 per year. However there is a vast discrepancy between the numbers of games available for each: EA Play (Origin) currently counts approximately 216 games EA Play (Steam) currently counts approximately 47 games These figures constitute a drop of approximately 78% and the numbers are based on our tracking list of games on our 'Availability' table, which is subject to change. Furthermore these numbers will change in the future as games are removed and added to the service. EA state that EA Play Steam will be receiving these new games in the future: One might think that the remedy to this is to simply pay for EA Play on Steam and then switch to the Origin platform. However on the EA Play FAQ, EA state that the subscription service is exclusive to the platform being joined on. Therefore subscribing to EA Play on Steam won't transfer the same subscription to Origin (or any other console), see: The main issue with the marketing of EA Play is that the list of games available vastly differs based on the platform, console and even what country you are in - and there isn't a simple list to compare one set of games to the other. Instead the lists are presented as large thumbnails which requires the user to press 'Load More', which give the impression of a huge number of games. Better would be to list them in a clear table, as PCGamingWiki has done here, which makes it very clear that the much more cost-effective subscription is only available on Origin.

  10. I have never played Minecraft before but my son (8) is quite interested (spurred on by recent family Minecraft Dungeons sessions on the Switch). My son has a personal iMac 2012 which he uses for basic 'work' (Zoom etc). In the same room is an old HTPC attached to the TV (i7 920 with GTX 970). I have my Windows gaming PC and my wife's Windows gaming PC which is in our office, plus a bunch of laptops (MacBook Pro 2019, MacBook Pro 2011). Questions: What edition - Bedrock or Java? What's the best way to host the server, self-host locally on a single computer, or on a LAN or online? Pay for Realms? Any tips or advice on how to get started?
  11. Yes this is a good idea, we should wikify this list of games. In terms of template position, perhaps it could fit in a new 'platform features' with 'achievements' section as proposed here?
  12. Does this help at all? https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Topic:Qe11vb4856fnlpmh - seems an expensive way to check whether a subpage exists. I'd be happy for RGB middleware and everything to be grouped under this one section Third-party tools. If we have lots of RGB stuff then becuase it's one template, we could output to its own subsection of the table in the future, e.g. Tools, RGB, etc. Subpages and navigation, we'd need some subpages to exist first and to have some kind of prototype e.g. what is will a /Special K subpage going to look like?
  13. Yes I think that would be covered similarly to Chaosbane - it's sort of irrelevant whether it's paid/free-to-play - as long as it's publicly available in some form (i.e. any member of the public can 'play/pay/opt-in' like an alpha/beta/demo/trial/pre-release then I'd consider it 'First available' even if it's not meeting the publisher's arbitrary 'Version 1.0 Release Day' marketing term.
  14. I am thinking now this could be adjusted to this new row: First available rather than Early access - this would cover: normal 'Early Access' with a capital A games situations like Chaosbane where there is pre-release window games like Star Citizen which are kind of playable/purchaseable now even though there is no 'full release'
