  1. Do you remember what it was that you added? I'm not familiar with this game but it looks like most things that were added anonymously are still present except for a couple of alternate fixes such as launching the game with "/B /GDBShaders KKMaps.bf" to fix a "BigFile" error--maybe that is one of the fixes you're referring to? If you're not sure what your changes were you can click on the "History" tab at the top of the page to see the full revision history. Other users might have decided to remove a particular fix if they thought the instructions weren't clear enough or the fix didn't work on their end.
  2. Steam Play Compatibility Reports provides functionality along those lines (this seems to be the main community site for this purpose). Additionally, games are also being logged (in a less structured way) on the GitHub Issues page. As a result I would not expect to see a database like this on PCGamingWiki in the near future (but these other sites might be linked to). Some games store data in a userdata path like that in addition to or instead of the Windows paths listed. I have reworded the note to make this clearer. If a "Steam" path such as this isn't listed for a game you can add it (this isn't automated because because use of this folder varies--even some games with Steam Cloud support actually store the files in the standard Windows locations and then upload to the cloud from there).
  3. This game starts after a couple of fixes: Download ogg-winmm. Extract everything to the installation folder. Download dgVoodoo 2. Extract the contents of the MS folder into the installation folder. The game should now start. If you want to disable the watermark you can change this in dgVoodooCpl.exe. EDIT: As noted on Discord, CD music seems to be broken even after these fixes (no music, music slider can't be adjusted in-game) despite following the ogg-winmm steps for ripping the music in OGG format.
  4. This game uses SafeDisc copy protection. SafeDisc has been disabled by Microsoft as part of an update due to security concerns. You could try starting the service manually before running the game (see MS15-097).
  5. Based on your suggestion I have renamed Mexican Spanish to Latin American Spanish (I delayed implementing this because I don't know enough about the situation for this language). Using either name on a game page will work.
  6. I just checked this and it's definitely broken (as in your case my address is very ordinary so this is not the cause of the error). I've added a Trello card for this issue.
  7. This information is part of the VR support template. See the Editing guide section for further details.
  8. 106 downloads

    Blank intro video files for WRC 7: FIA World Rally Championship. Extract to WIN32\Movies\ in the installation folder, confirming the replacement of the existing files when prompted.
  9. 414 downloads

    Official patches for Outcast. Install each patch in order.
  10. 62 downloads

    Demo for Arsenal: Taste the Power.
  11. 68 downloads

    Replacement intro video for Montezuma's Return!. Install the game with the Huge install size. Extract the replacement utopia1.smk into the installation folder. Confirm the replacement of the existing file when prompted. The title screen will still be shown.
  12. You may be able to get the space campaign to start by doing the following: Download the latest version of dgVoodoo 2. Extract the contents of the MS folder into the game's installation folder. Run the game normally. I have no idea whether this works reliably at this point. Each language was sold separately (so there may be some differences there) and I also had some behavior differences between the versions of Windows I tested it on. Based on my testing this does not fix the temporary color corruption on the main menu and it may also cause videos to show no picture (you can play the videos on the CD outside the game if you want to see what you've missed). If this works on your end do let me know what language your game CD is and what version of Windows you're playing on.
  13. Do you have a particular situation in mind where this information would be useful?
  14. This wiki follows a naming convention similar to Wikipedia etc. where normal words are written in title case (this does not apply to acronyms and some other situations).
  15. You can use DevCon to disable devices (further details here). This is the equivalent of disabling a device through the Device Manager. You could make a set of batch files that run DevCon with the commands needed to get just the controller you need. x360ce only works for games that use the XInput API since it overrides the DLL. You might need to use a different DLL name (the x360ce documentation lists some known DLL names to try). If a game uses other methods (such as DirectInput or raw input) you'll need to use a different program.

    TimeShift final patch packaged for the Steam release. This file was originally downloaded from the Steam Community guide.
  17. Version 2.06B_int


    Official patch for Lego Chess. The original WinZip Self-Extractor has been repackaged as a standard Zip file.
  18. I have updated the input settings template to always show haptic feedback when it is set to true or hackable.
  19. You should add this information to the engine page as well (something like this is present but the steps are a bit different).
  20. 5000 pages is MediaWiki's limit for the Special:Export category feature (details). This limit does not apply to page names entered manually. If you don't want to use the API a quick way to grab a full list is to click and drag over the names on Category:Games and copy-paste that into the Special:Export box, repeating for each additional page of results in the category, then start the export once you have the full list. Do you have a particular use in mind? If your interest is in the settings information you can query this through Special:Ask (or the API) using one or more properties to find and display the information you're wanting to see (Semantic MediaWiki has extensive documentation for this). You could also use this to make a reduced list of relevant pages for Special:Export etc. If you have any further questions feel free to ask. You can also usually find some of us in the Discord server. (For reference, PCGamingWiki content is available under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial Share Alike license.)
  21. The Semantic Result Formats extension should be installed. This would enable use of the DataTables display format (example). The search box applies a full or partial match for the keyword(s) to all result data for that query, even data that is currently off the page--note how the "Show # entries" and "Previous/Next" controls directly update the display instead of loading a different page. As an example with this wiki's data, you could put the operating system name in the search box (on its own or together with other keywords) to show only games for that system, etc. (For reference, the Cargo extension also supports the DataTables display format, so this sort of searching would still be available if the wiki switched to that extension).
  22. Version


    Official installation files for Microsoft Games for Windows - LIVE. This package contains the last version of the Marketplace client ( and the last version of the Redistributable ( Uninstall the Microsoft Games for Windows Marketplace client and the Microsoft Games for Windows - LIVE Redistributable (if either is installed), then extract all files and run gfwlivesetup.exe. This package contains the following official downloads packaged together for convenience: gfwlivesetup.exe gfwlclient.msi xliveredist.msi (renamed from XLiveUpdate.msi to xliveredist.msi to enable detection by gfwlivesetup.exe) wllogin_32.msi and wllogin_64.msi (this installation step is skipped automatically on Windows 8 and later)
  23. Most games can have AA/AF/Vsync forced successfully, so it is more useful to note the cases where this capability does not work as expected. Last month I updated Template:Video settings to show default notes when AA/AF/Vsync is set to false without a note specified, so cases where support has been set to false without further explanation suggest a likely solution. Working methods specific to a game (INI edit, mod, Nvidia flag, etc.) should be set to hackable as always.
