    Multi-lingual pages?

    1. Well, all the text on all the pages should be in English ('cept individual user pages perhaps). 2. I think a tenable policy is that we would greatly prefer an English language screenshot over those of other languages, but a different language screenshot is more informative than no screenshot at all.
  8. You mention Windows 7. Since they're older and less resource intensive, might be worth trying them out in Windows XP mode.

    Facebook buys Oculus For $2 billion

    I'm cautiously optimistic I guess. If Mark can keep to his word and not micromanage it, then perhaps it can still flourish. I was sad to hear that Notch nixed the minecraft version of the rift.

    Patch notes/ Title Updates

    Agreed with Garrett. They should go on the individual files' page, not on the articles proper.

    PCGamingWiki turns 2 today

    It's amazing how far we've come in two years. With Andy's great idea, JRWR's mad admin skills and a massive group of volunteers we've made this site into something quite cool and helpful. Go Team!

    Spinning Camera Issues?

    Owing to the lack of response for nearly a year, and the fact that someone reported this(?) I think it's safe to lock this. Plus piracy...
  15. I see no reason why not.
  16. Have you tried forcing the games in a window via DxWn, or setting your screen to run in 16bit colors: http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=965494 http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/archive/index.php/t-2219928.html

    most/all games misbehaving help

    Have you run an antivirus/antispyware scan? I'd recommend Spybot Search and Destroy, Malwarebytes, Windows Defender/Microsoft Security Essentials, and AVG antivirus.
  18. Apologies, I missed the third I, and was looking for info for Final Fantasy 7.
  19. From what I've read, it seems that originally the game used the original midi files, but most sounds cards these days didn't have some of the soundfonts and so the computer changed up the instruments and therefore the sounds sounded different. There was an update in September of 2013 that came out that changed the music to PSX quality, but I'm not entirely sure what that means.
  20. I think to cut down on stubs, vendor specific utilities should be put under the Nvidia or AMD GPU articles. Same for alternate drivers for graphics cards. We should make a sound card article (if we don't have one already) and put appropriate alternative drivers there. I think the installation guide would be best done per article, as then they can be more tailored to particular drivers instead of more generalized.

    What's your PC game of the year from 2013?

    Being part of the herd, and not feeling particularly verbose this morning, I'd have to say Bioshock Infinite and Tomb Raider.

    Nvidia Inspector compatibility bits

    Agreed. Would probably be best to add it to the http://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Nvidia page, but I could see it be worth a separate page itself.
