  2. Version v5.1.66


    Patch for the open-source version of Starshatter: The Gathering Storm
  3. Version v5.05


    Full freeware version of Starshatter: The Gathering Storm, which has been officially (and exclusively) patched to remove CD check.
  4. Great report, RaTcHeT302! This outlines the problems with the game very clearly and succinctly, and is written fairly well.
  5. Just discovered FCAT (Framerate Capture Analysis Toolkit) is actually freeware! While it doesn't actually record the game, it does provide a highly-accurate representation of the FPS, frame stability (i.e. number of dropped frames), and so on. It even includes a handy reviewer's guide explaining how to use FCAT on both AMD and NVIDIA cards as well as why you'd want to use it over FRAPS and similar tools. Unfortunately, unless you're willing to splurge on a DataPath VisionDVI-DL Capture Card, FRAPS or others will likely remain the only practical options.
  6. What do you mean by tracking? If you literally mean "list all games which use game engine [x]", yes we do. Using Unreal Engine 4 as an example, so long as the info has been added into a game's infobox, and the appropriate engine page created, it's automatic.
  7. That's a shame. Do you know why they suddenly developed an unwillingness? Also, for future reference, is it possible to earmark donations for being used to purchase game copies for the review system?
  8. Firstly, no, you're not seeing things - Expack3 is, in fact, back. Not sure it'll be permanent, but while I'm here I figured I might as well contribute some constructive opinions.... I could see a shared naming convention being used for these games. The fact they have release dates and not "Early Access" dates would be sufficient differentiation.
  9. This is a truly landmark deal you've managed to negotiate, Andytizer! I don't know if anyone's realized it, but this agreement not only dramatically reduces the chance an assignment request is rejected because no game key can be acquired (as far as major/AAA releases go), but it also reduces the load on Pridit and any future assignment moderators as all that's needed is to request the key from Gamesplanet instead of going through a publisher/developer's PR department. (I'm not dissing insider relations, of course. That's always helpful and beneficial!)
  10. Based on the history page (http://pcgamingwiki.com/w/index.php?title=Template:Store_link&action=history), it was introduced on February 3, 2015 so more like recently new.
  11. As I was updating the availability section of some of the titles which are resold on Gamesplanet, I noticed the Store Link template (http://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Template:Store_link) does not support the new store yet (see http://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Fallout:_New_Vegas#Availability for an excellent example).
  12. That's my thinking as well - I also try to link to the version differences in the retail section where possible - but I'd rather have an official way of handling such situations rather than an unofficial one which may prove in discussions to be sub-optimal.
  13. I've been finding a few games, such as the original King's Quest (http://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/King%27s_Quest:_Quest_for_the_Crown#Version_differences) and Railroad Tycoon II (http://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Railroad_Tycoon_II#Version_differences), where there are multiple releases, each with their own differences and features. For such games, I've been adding in a "Version differences" subsection to the Availability section so people can identify what version has what. Since such situations aren't covered by the guide, how should such situations be handled?
