  1. A well-known issue in the RE2 remake, likely because this post gained so much traction on Reddit. RE7 shares the same engine and this limitation is reported here and there: https://steamcommunity.com/app/883710/discussions/0/1646544348831284219/ https://steamcommunity.com/app/883710/discussions/0/1779388024832002839/ https://www.speedrun.com/re2remake/thread/z264y/1#6x99v Please edit the article if you have reliable sources or own the game and can test (try to reach the highest frame rate possible).

    Youngblood Tweaker

    The mod is indeed incompatible with the 1.0.5. version. If @Methanhydrat updates the mod, can you please add the "use the dot crosshair for all weapons" option, present in the Wolfenstein II tweaker?

    Interview questions for Gamesplanet

    Can you add PC Gaming Wiki article links to the store pages? Also, unless I'm mistaken you don't have links to Steam either (may apply to the other first-party stores as well). Since Steam is a great source of information, can you add references?

    New Colossus Tweaker

    Additionally, turning off head bob breaks the camera position in some of the in-engine cutscenes (inside the player model) and at least at the beginning of "The Freedom Chronicles - Episode 1" DLC it's mandatory to disable the tweak since the activation prompt doesn't appear. I still consider the side effects as relatively minor.

    "504 Gateway Time-out" error

    I've received the error consistently recently when attempting to edit pages (including the preview):

    Bully: Scholarship Edition Patch

    The date is wrong:
  9. I suggest adding The Patches Scrolls to the game article infobox. A definite resource for game patches to my knowledge (updates are still important for titles which aren't available in digital distribution).

    Rally Trophy Widescreen Fix

    Sadly the mod isn't complete as nogripracing.com is down and the game data editor required for increasing FOV isn't available as a result.

    MobyGames

    That's unfortunate. I consider high-quality cover art (not limited to the front/back image) scans as useful information, this is (presumably) additional design created by the art team and I've sourced images from there.

    News section should be more focused on fixing games

    Is posting news available to all users or only to the accounts with higher rights?
  13. 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.

    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.

    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.

  17. 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/

    FlatOut - missing car texture fix (GOG)

    Version

    166 downloads

    In the GOG version of FlatOut one of the car textures in the gold cup races (and some bonus events) is missing and the vehicle appears in black. The other versions of the game shouldn't be affected. Extract the archive to your game folder and overwrite the existing files. source (I've renamed the archive and added the correct file path)
  19. Version 1.03

    45 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)
  20. 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"?
  21. 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:

    What's up with all the broken images ?

    How many files have been lost in total?

    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.
