    Proposal: Remove wikis from General information

    I haven't yet thought this through, but I'm in favor of removing at least Wikia (fandom.com, wikia.org) as the information in the game wikis is often unsourced and non-encyclopedic (subjective most commonly), in addition to Wikia, Inc. being a for-profit company with millions in funds I can't recall of Wikia has hosted the "official" wiki for a major game.

    Change the language here (note the selected tabs, then press the element highlighted in blue):

    XInput Plus

    https://sites.google.com/site/0dd14lab/xinput-plus This program is occasionally recommend in articles, for instance here: https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Prince_of_Persia:_The_Sands_of_Time#Sensitivity_issues_for_XInput_controllers The website is in Japanese, considering the Google Translate element on the lower right corner the language likely can't be changed. Is there a permalink for the most recent version so we can at least make downloading convenient for PC Gaming Wiki users? The program launched in an Asian language for me, instructions for changing to English are worthwhile. - - - There's this play-old-pc-games.com tutorial, but the site is down and archive.org hasn't saved the images.
  4. The PC Gaming Wiki community only offers 0.5 MB of image attachment size in total. Embedded gallery/album images were broken in some software update* and I started fixing the images in my files, but now have only 0.34MB left after uploading one image. Can the allocated size be increased? * https://community.pcgamingwiki.com/files/file/833-resident-evil-5-cleaned-hud/ https://community.pcgamingwiki.com/files/file/832-resident-evil-5-chapter-6-1-ship-deck-bug-fix/ https://community.pcgamingwiki.com/files/file/788-nosferatu-the-wrath-of-malachi-widescreen-fix/
  5. Version 1.03

    5 downloads

    SafeDisc DRM may be active. downloaded from https://web.archive.org/web/20151201074205/ftp://ftp.ea.com/pub/eapacific/lotr/lotrbfme/LotrBfMe-65539-english.exe (changelog will be added when found)
  6. Key points give too much power to new accounts (I'm mainly referring to unregistered users) and some very questionable information has even been featured on the front page's "featured articles" . I don't often know what can be added either and a significant portion of my key points have been quickly removed from articles. The editing guide is more of a guideline. I've compiled some examples of subjective edits here:
  7. What is the correct way to fill in AF (in the article video settings table) for two-dimensional games? Can I use "n/a" (not-applicable)? And how to formally write (in "notes) "this is a 2D game", or "this game doesn't use 3D graphics"?

    What's up with all the broken images ?

    How many files have been lost in total?
  9. http://www.gogwiki.com/wiki/List_of_games_removed_from_GOG gogwiki.com has been in read-only state for a long time. Despite being out of date, the list was a great resource for me as I wasn't even aware that many of the games (Colin McRae Rally 2005, Cryostasis, Second Sight, XIII, Death Gate) have received a digital release. I hope that the page can be officially moved here. I've cloned the page on my profile, updated two games which have been returned for sale.

    MobyGames

    I also wish for MobyGames to be added to the article infobox. The website excels in high-quality cover and disc scans.

    Proposal: Metacritic or equivalent

    I'm against adding Metacritic or Opencritic scores because the vast majority of outlets issue the same score for all platforms (prominent when the 100-point scale is used), presumably not comparing the platforms extensively, or not much at all. The PC platform universally has lower amount of scores than the console platforms which have roughly 100 ratings for major releases — the Metacritic average also tends to be lower despite objective technical advantages. More significant issue is that practically every publication listed on Metacritic ignores the technical aspect: 30fps lock, locked resolution, mouse acceleration, key-rebinding, available configuration options (if any), gamepad-friendly HUD, mismatched X and Y sensitivity are so rarely mentioned that I might as well say that they never are. I skimmed through every English review for Alice: Madness Returns (when online, some pages haven't been archived by archive.org) and the game's 30-fps lock was never noted.

    Unreal Engine 3 frame rate unlocking template

    ===[[Glossary:Frame rate (FPS)|High frame rate]]=== {{Fixbox|description=Change frame rate smoothing|fix= # Go to the [[#Game data|configuration file(s) location]]. # Open <code>configuration file</code>. # Search and change <code>bSmoothFrameRate</code> to <code>false</code> '''or''' raise <code>MaxSmoothedFrameRate</code> value. # Save changes. {{ii}} For more information, see the [[Engine:Unreal Engine 3#Smoothed frame rate|Unreal Engine 3 page]]. }}
  13. Can you provide a general article template for unlocking frame rate in Unreal Engine 3 games, similar to the sample article? I have seen something along the lines of [...]"please refer to the Unreal Engine 3 page for additional information" in UE3 game articles, may be official to a certain degree.
