  1. If you read through that CD music thread you can see I asked for it for almost 2 years until it was done. It is only been a year since it has been available.
  2. Each file can be listed individually and each one can have its own flag; plain text or binary. Encrypted/non encrypted is poor choice of words on my part, I was more thinking about being readable and editable versus being binary, ecrypted or whatever.
  3. I suggest adding a parameter so we can set if configuration files are encrypted or not. There could be several options; - non encrypted - when you can read and edit them with notepad, or if registry settings are readable and can be edited - hackable - if it is encrypted, but there is a tool to read and edit them - encrypted - no soup for you
  4. There will be no edit wars from my side, I really don't care that much and don't want Expack3 to think I am hostile. I opened this topic to point to a possible problem, expressed my opinion how to handle it and the people in charge can decide what is best.
  5. If you go to the page for American McGee's Alice, you will see this "key point": https://www.pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/American_McGee's_Alice If you open history you will see this is some kind of leftover from a problem with a pirated version of the game from MyAbandonware and it has no business on this Wiki. Normally I deleted it, but user Expack3 wrote that users "claiming to have legitimate copy" experience this issue and reverted it back. I deleted it again saying "unconfirmed claims that don't apply to all versions should not be a key point, if there are official releas
  6. The website is too bright and it needs a "dark mode" to make it more comfortable for us. I made a very simple example in GIMP. The white parts are changed to value 95, the availability box to 90 and background is set to 80. Even this minor change makes it more comfortable to look at, while it doesn't impact the overall design. This would be a good enough start, but others may like even darker mode.
  7. On my Watchlist I just saw someone changing the links from Patreon pages to buymeacoffee. https://www.pcgamingwiki.com/w/index.php?title=I_Am_Alive&diff=1020741&oldid=1013318 https://www.pcgamingwiki.com/w/index.php?title=Nocturne&diff=1020708&oldid=1013309 https://www.pcgamingwiki.com/w/index.php?title=American_McGee's_Alice&diff=1020702&oldid=1018837 It is for Peixoto, who I know makes video game fixes and I used his program before. I'm not sure what was Patreon link doing there in the first place. When I link to his fixes I link to a thread on Vog
  8. The first picture reminds me of the beginning of the Luminous Engine tech demo by Square Enix 8 years ago. Unigine is also making some great strides, but they don't have Sony or Microsoft to do the marketing for them.
  9. Thank you Garrett for your work.
  10. The whole thing basically makes the "Infobox" look like a copy-pasted page from Moby Games, plus the cover often comes from there too. That is why I suggested to link to Moby Games in the first place, if people want all that additional info they can find it there. https://www.pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Escape_from_Monkey_Island https://www.mobygames.com/game/escape-from-monkey-island I'm not going to fight it, I just wanted to express my opinion. I will continue to focus on the classic sections on the game pages.
  11. Maybe the bigger problem is the word "ESSENTIAL" in the title. People put links to patches there, but is every patch really essential ? No it is not. People put links to various mods there, but even if the mods do improve something, it usually it is not essential. It is a too strong word.
  12. It's has been almost 2 years already, it is surprising to see nothing has been done about this.
  13. It says on the home page "PCGamingWiki aims to list fixes and workarounds for every single PC game." How is writing that Escape From Monkey Island uses "cinematic camera perspective" help anyone ? In my opinion everything not related to getting the games fixed or improved is a waste of people's time and spreads the project and community thin. Even if it is done with a bot it just makes it harder to keep track of all the constant changes on your watchlist. This site is slowly creeping into Moby Games territory adding stuff like this, the ratings or whatever comes next.
  14. I remember when I was working on my Chrome patch, increasing FOV for widescreen also messed up the LOD. Thankfully Jackfuste found some LOD variable using assembler, or whatever he uses, that was directly tied to the FOV and fixed the issue.
  15. When I was searching for a mouse 2-3 years ago people recommended optical mouse, not laser, so they still make those. If you go to Razer website their mouse seem to use optical sensor.
  16. Glad to hear it works. Since you weren't brave enough to update the wiki, I added it to "Issues fixed" section myself.
  17. I don't understand why this needs 32 GB of RAM + 8 GB of VRAM, but it is supposed to run on Xbox where even the next one will have only 16 GB combined ? It makes Windows look like un-optimized resource hungry junk. Also having to install 150 GB data and then also need 20-50 Mbps Internet speed during play makes no sense, it's the same requirement like when you Stream the entire game on Stadia or something. Might as well just stream the whole thing in the first place.
  18. It is a DirectX 9 game. You can try using WineD3D for Windows: https://fdossena.com/?p=wined3d/index.frag Or dgVoodoo 2: https://www.pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/DgVoodoo_2 You just need to copy the required dll files into the game installation folder where the game executable is located, read the instructions.
  19. People are going to be SO disappointed playing Crysis. Even Lara Croft in modern Tomb Raider games is a more powerful killing machine than the guys in Crysis games ever were with their nanosuits and the fancy high-tech weapons. The weapon customization is nowhere near what you get in modern games. The game was being popular for its "open world" gameplay back in the day, but it is nothing compared to the size and complexity of modern games. Also by running on Switch the "Can it run Crysis?" will be sealed forever as a joke. This will be "the Emperor has no clothes" moment for Crysis 1.
  20. How can they patent this. There is a famous Internet joke called Smach Z (short for Steam Machine Zero) that had this in their indiegogo campaign in 2016. They called it Z-pad. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/smach-z-the-handheld-gaming-pc#/ https://c1.iggcdn.com/indiegogo-media-prod-cld/image/upload/c_limit,w_695/v1479558248/n4dqh35q34vz8b15x0lm.png
  21. Like I said I am against it, but since the decision was made I would further water it down and only show the average of those three. Review average: Metacritic, Opencritic, IGDB: 82 With names "Metacritic, Opencritic, IGDB" being a link to each of the pages. Or use an icon like for MobyGames, Wikipedia and others.
  22. If the game doesn't work with dgVoodoo make a topic about it on Vogons forums in the dgVoodoo section and developer might look into it. He can't fix problems he doesn't know about. Also saying what GPU you use would be useful. Did you try running the game on your integrated graphics as well ? Sometimes those can work better.
  23. Just read the instructions under "DirectX 1-8" on the link he posted, you just need to copy few files into the game installation folder.
