  1. OK, I've made Template:Citation needed. It sets a category but currently doesn't have a link (as on Wikipedia) because I'm not sure what it would link to; perhaps the citation category description could be its target?
  2. What is the intended use? To have all fixes cited with a source/tester/etc.?
  3. I'd suggest having only a true/false/hackable entry in the main video settings template which then links to an Oculus Rift section with true/false/hackable for each feature. The supported games spreadsheet lists the features as 3D, FOV, Warp, Tracking, TrackIR5 and Mouse-Emulation. I have made an example template based on that: User:Garrett/Oculus.
  4. This is a technical limitation (it sees the equals sign and thinks it's the end of a parameter name) so it can't be fixed in the template. Most store links don't need equals signs so this usually isn't a problem; Steam and Mac App Store links sometimes generate with them but those parts can be removed.
  5. When you need an equals inside a template with unnamed parameters, specify the parameters with numbers. See the diff for what this change looks like. :) You only need to make this adjustment for the affected uses of those templates; others on the page can have unnamed parameters as usual. I have also added Battle.net to the ID template.
  6. The column width difference was due a conflict with .template-infotable which caused the specified width to be ignored when colspan was used. I've removed this dependency and adjusted things so the width is the same in both modes. I've also fixed the off-center spacing and adjusted the WSGF image size to appear the same. Alignment of the medals with the ticks isn't perfect because the tick images incorporate their own padding and vary in size (all are 25x25px but the actual size without padding varies). Ideally the ticks would be updated to have the same dimensions and no padding, with padding then applied through CSS to both ticks and medals identically if needed. Thanks for the updated small medals LDK. :)
  7. I have integrated WSGF support into Video Settings. The ratings column is only shown when widescreen_wsgf_award= has a value, so existing pages are unaffected. The ratings display the same hover tooltips as on WSGF and link to the WSGF page when a link is provided (otherwise they are not linked). Unfortunately WSGF's Limited, Unsupported and Incomplete badges are unreadable at this size. They should ideally be replaced with something simpler. They are WSGF_WS_Limited.png, WSGF_WS_Unsupported.png, WSGF_WS_Incomplete.png, WSGF_MM_Limited.png, WSGF_MM_Unsupported.png, WSGF_MM_Incomplete.png. I'm no graphic designer so I'll leave that task for someone else. :)
  8. This is because Home hides the tagline, thus moving everything up, which is normally preferred for the main page. One solution would be to move them up into the header area (for all pages, not just Home, for consistency).
  9. The situation a fix applies to can be noted as part of the header; "rainbow colours (retail version)", "no sound (HD version)", etc., or if there are a great many fixes for only the one version they could all go under a header for that version. If the new version is completely different (e.g. an HD remake using a totally different engine) it should have its own page. Pages should cover all fixes for all releases, generally skipping issues fixed by official patches (issues fixed only by unofficial community patches should still be listed). If a particular issue can't be fixed for a certain release then buying a re-release can be given as a valid solution. One common example of this is Mac OS games with Classic or PowerPC-only versions; these can't run natively on modern systems so the wiki should note the existence of Mac OS X Universal/Intel versions.
  10. Mac App Store links can be simplified by removing the question mark and everything after it, so it becomes https://itunes.apple.com/app/cubemen/id466248661 This works for Steam too, and possibly some others that sometimes generate an equals sign. For stores where this isn't possible simply number every parameter, so in this case it's |1= (the link), |2= (the ID template), and |3= (the notes).
  11. I have added Green Man Gaming, GameStop PC Downloads (new name of Impulse) and Mac App Store. I didn't add Mac Game Store since that's the only page that has it. I have updated the template to be case-insensitive (Gog, gog and GOG will all produce the same result, etc.); you can find the complete list of recognised names at Template:Distributor.
  12. So something like this then: User:Garrett/Sandbox. The template itself is at User:Garrett/DRM. The first parameter is the DRM, the second is the DRM exception (optional). Both parameters accept custom input.
  13. What if the medals had their own column? This would make it clear that these things are medals and avoid having potentially confusing combinations in the same column, e.g. a Yes for native and an Unknown for WSGF for the same feature (unless the plan is for WSGF ratings to only be shown when a rating exists).
  14. So, to clarify, this is a pirated version? I'd suggest you buy the game (see Availability for some of the many places you can buy it) and see if the problem persists when using a legal version.
  15. To avoid this, specify the parameter number as shown in the Sample Article: {{Fixbox|1= This way equals signs are not misinterpreted as parameters. The Team Fortress 2 example you give did not use fixbox in the suggested manner, hence why problems occur when you include equals signs in the template content. I have fixed the page now. If you have problems like this with fixbox in the future, check to see whether it has the |1= part present. This applies to all templates, e.g. if an availability link needs an equals sign simply specify numbered parameters for that use of the template (other uses in the availability list can omit the numbers as usual).
  16. System requirements are probably the least important information, so having it last made sense.
  17. I'd suggest replacing the unlock column with a DRM column. This would convey the same information while also highlighting unexpected situations, e.g. games that have SecuROM on the Steam version. This would mean the currently uninformative "retail" unlock type would be replaced by the specific DRM used on the disc, and it would also eliminate some of the redundant combinations of the current system (e.g. specifying a GOG.com unlock type when GOG.com games are never sold elsewhere anyway). EDIT: example of DRM instead of unlock, to clarify what I'm describing. :)
  18. I don't have this game but I tried the demo and it displayed correctly (tested on XP 32-bit in VirtualBox, 7 64-bit and 8 64-bit natively), indicating that the issue could be something system-specific (possibly your video card drivers). Demo builds are sometimes different, however; do you see the same problem with the demo? Have you tried using the game's 3DSetup tool to see if you can change the renderer to something else?
  19. The feed you're wanting is mode=topics_active which lists topics in the order of the last post. Each topic is listed only once even if it has had multiple recent replies.
  20. Category:DOS exists but nothing links to it.
  21. How should DOS games be categorised? Categorised under Windows, Mac and Linux since DOSBox lets these games run on all of them? Categorised only if there is a modern package for that platform (e.g. on GOG.com)? Something else?
