    I do not use adblocking software, so I'm assuming the continue button is put there to forward you to advertisement site to get some ad money from you even with adblock. 
    Site works just fine without adblock so either you need to whitelist or block the adblocker blocker.

    So Ubisoft changed their layout, but only for their 'other' region.
     
    So the template should be updated to:

    Mirh reacted to RaTcHeT302 in Steamworks DRM in articles   
    Essentially, Steam is just a client where the games are listed and distributed, so that you can download and access them, similarly to what GOG does, the difference is that they both use a different distribution method, on Steam you have to login into a client, and on GOG you have to login on their website in order to download each game separately, it is up to a developer to implement any extra DRM measures, so if a game is not tied to any DRM system, other than your Steam account, then it's DRM-free.
     
    The Steam client itself is not DRM, it is simply used to share any purchased games among its users.

    So.. in the first discussion I won after plenty of effort.
    Garrett (nor soeb or mairoskillax for as much as I know) didn't dare to read the actual discussions, and for a reason or another he/they didn't get the not intrinsically DRM-ed or DRM-free nature of steam.
    And I guess, in a modesty rampage, they thought like asking for clarifications would have lead to flaming like in the first thread.
    For as much once you are 10 years old, it shouldn't be so hard to read sentences like "sometimes it can, sometimes it isn't"
     
    TL;DR Wait for somebody to confirm or deny my allegations, hoping everything will be fine then.

    Mirh reacted to Mars icecream in Steamworks DRM in articles   
    Many articles contain false information about DRM, if the game is available on Steam they seem to be marked as using Steamworks DRM by default. The Steam client by itself isn't DRM and is only required for downloading the games.
    For example Running With Scissors doesn't use DRM in their games (Postal 3 is owned and developed by by Akella): http://steamcommunity.com/app/401680/discussions/0/357287304428353574/ ( UPDATE: RWS deleted the DRM paragraph and at least Postal Redux can no longer be played without the Steam client)
    Every RWS game article claims otherwise. The Shovel Knight page also had the same issue, I contacted the developer and the PC version was confirmed being DRM-free on Steam. (UPDATE: Steam API is used).
     
    I think the unknown icon should be used instead of guessing. Steamworks DRM is easy to test, just close the Steam client and try if the game launches without.

    Perhaps it's time to add an area to the system requirements where the actual size of the game is mentioned?  This may help for games like Overwatch, where the game recommends a good 30GB of space on the box then only has a 6.1GB file size.
     
    Yes, Overwatch really is that small.  It may get updates over time, but 30GB won't fill itself.

    That's why there are codec packs for dumbs (I mean, actual sane codec packs, not jumble like k-lite)
    And I think that in 2016 there's more than enough spare processing power for this kind of stuff (even though, VLC is indeed more heavy than vanilla mpc)
     
    Then, both libbluray and libdvdcss are hosted by VLC guys, but I'm pretty sure mpc-hc use them too. The only difference should be the later has no support for java menus.

    AA Test article
     
    Changes:
    Listed all known AA methods Used the info icons to make everything cleaner Divided them into Traditional and Post-Processing Added info about their developers and GPU support Added several new references to everything I could. (More may be needed and maybe less "biased" ones) Removed Nvidia Inspector flags and moved them to Nvidia Inspector article Some things to note:
    Comparision images still use the old-ass image template and ugly wiki tables. I am not sure if the new templates can reproduce them without being overly huge or aligned to right Types of Anti-Aliasing isn't prettiest, but I think it should stay in some form ATI/AMD specific stuff needs to be looked over by someone who owns either as I can't verify anything as Nvidia user Post any suggestions here in this thread please and DON'T EDIT THE ARTICLE DIRECTLY ELSE IT'LL GET MESSY

    Mirh reacted to ThatOneReaper in AA, AF, Vsync and forcing through GPU   
    The only way I would see that working is if the Video Settings table had a dedicated field to enable showing generic instructions ("show_generic"). If the field is set to "true", then add a blurb to the relevant video settings along the lines of:
     
    "Generic instructions for forcing <VIDEO SETTING> can be found in <LINK TO GLOSSARY SECTION>"
     
    Even then, I don't like the idea of having a dedicated element in game articles for general fixes like that. I want to remove general solutions, not highlight them.
     
    I already mentioned the best approach to this: Add one set of generic instructions to the glossary pages (Anisotropic filtering, Anti-aliasing, Vertical sync) and remove said instructions from specific game pages. All tables are already linked to these glossary pages. If someone absolutely wants to force a specific video setting for a game, they can look there.
