  1. Those links go through GOG's affiliate scheme which helps to support PCGW.
  2. We have now engaged a very experienced MediaWiki developer who has done lots of work on familiar sites eg StrategyWiki, and we are looking at deliverables for the SSO fix in mid-November. However in order to implement the fix we must also upgrade MediaWiki. However in order to do this, we have to remove all the code related to SMW as this is no longer compatible with MediaWiki 1.35 on our setup. Therefore we hope that the volunteers working on SMW to Cargo migration are able to complete everything before the year is up, and we can implement the upgrade + SSO fix before the end of the year.

  3. Hasn't been taken down yet.. but will be sometime this week. Double whammy is removing re3 and reVC which were both great ways to play GTA III and Vice City, especially on Linux/macOS.
  4. We are getting ever closer to fixing this issue, with a potential contractor lined up with deliverables potentially in November. Fingers crossed!
  5. PCGamingWiki are looking for a developer to help solve our login issues. Currently we operate an SSO login system integrating Keycloak, MediaWiki and IP Board. However, currently we have an issue on the MediaWiki side: logins are very slow and users are forced to log out after around 20 mins of inactivity. We are looking for a developer to build the integration between MediaWiki and oauth2_proxy [https://github.com/oauth2-proxy/oauth2-proxy], which should solve our issues. This developer should meet the following criteria: Solid MediaWiki + PHP experience a must Experie

    This is a 'fix' specific to M1 Macs running CrossOver or Wine versions of the Windows game Devil May Cry 5. Currently the game crashes at the Prologue level, this save game allows users to skip this and jump straight into Level 1. This level does have some graphical errors but from Level 2 onwards is very playable. This savegame was created by me on my Windows gaming PC and packaged up. The save game location is found here: https://www.pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Devil_May_Cry_5#Save_game_data_location It should be located within the Steam data here: <Steam-folder>\userdata\<user-

  10. I don't have an issue with acknowledging the existence of a widely distributed pirated copy of the game - as long as we don't directly link/promote it. The main reason we don't promote piracy is due to an abundance of caution and not wanting for PCGamingWiki to be 'taken down' by a rightsholder for whatever reason. Secondly, we promote the legal and fair way for gamers to acquire games, which we hope helps to promote a healthy PC gaming ecosystem. Secondly if this was a key point, it can be removed - key points are deprecated (replaced by Introduction) and this sounds more like an "Issue
  11. The events of the last year have been very tough for the entire world, but none have suffered more than the average PC gamer. Over the past 12 months we have seen PC gaming components like GPUs like the GeForce RTX 3070 rise exponentially in price due to the surge of cryptocurrency mining and price scalping, and this trend shows no sign of slowing down. Unfortunately our analysis shows that PC gaming will become completely unviable by 2022, with the price of a single average gaming GPU to exceed that of the US median annual salary in 2023. Once a PC gamer's components start to fail, it'll beco

  16. 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 ht
  17. @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 bas
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. Send an email to help@pcgamingwiki.com and we'll be able to sort it out.
  21. 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 figu
  22. 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 o
