  1. Writing in support of the proposal, although I also will have to re-read the replies as I basically just skimmed them now.

    Proposal: Genres and Modes

    "First person shooter", "Third person shooter", "3D", "2D" are primarily all just different forms of perspective from which the gameplay is available. "Genres" typically deal with content matter, as in "Adventure", "Action", "Racing", etc. The way Valve currently handles this subject is to basically don't even bother. They define all of the above examples as "tags", and then allows developers to set which tag they prefer to have the game listed primarily as being under, and whatnot. So the question is rather to what extent PCGW should start to categorizing games, and whether stuff like content matter of games is the purpose or just technical details such as 2D/3D and first or third person view.
  3. Played around a bit in Firefox's inspector tool. If we solely plan to keep this limited to "alternative sources" of obtaining access to games right now, then I can whip up an extension to the Availability template, and add notes to boot. Example mockup: Base source code, so I don't forget it 😅 <tr class="template-infotable-head"> <th scope="col" style="width: 230px;">Alternative sources</th> <th scope="col" style="width: 50px;"> </th> <th style="width: 540px;" scope="col" colspan="3">Notes</th> </tr><tr class="template-infotable-body"> <th scope="row"><abbr title="asdsad">Xbox Play Anywhere</abbr></th> <td><div title="Native support" class="svg-icon svg-25 tickcross-true"></div> </td> <td colspan="3">Does not apply to the 2016 re-release.</td> </tr><tr class="template-infotable-body"> <th scope="row"><abbr title="asdsad">Xbox Game Pass</abbr></th><td><div title="Native support" class="svg-icon svg-25 tickcross-true"></div> </td> <td colspan="3">Comes pre-packaged with cosmetics DLCs.</td> </tr><tr class="template-infotable-body"> <th scope="row"><abbr title="asdsad">Origin Access Basic</abbr></th> <td><div title="Native support" class="svg-icon svg-25 tickcross-false"></div> </td> <td colspan="3">Limited to 10-hour trial.</td> </tr><tr class="template-infotable-body"> <th scope="row"><abbr title="asdsad">Origin Access Premier</abbr></th> <td><div title="Native support" class="svg-icon svg-25 tickcross-true"></div> </td> <td colspan="3">Deluxe Edition</td> </tr>
  4. The existence of this template and the attempt to now track Game Pass titles (a subscription service that adds and removes games in its catalog every now and then) have made me question whether we shouldn't opt for a more generic template instead that's designed to be extended for whatever supplementary feature might come up. Something like this basically: {{Store features | microsoft store game pass = true | microsoft store play anywhere = true | origin access = | origin access premier = true }} which would then create a list like this: {{ii}} Included in Xbox Game Pass subscription service. {{ii}} Xbox Play Anywhere title; purchase it on either Microsoft Store on Windows 10 or Xbox, and receive copies for both platforms. {{ii}} Included in Origin Access Premier subscription service. If this was then used below the availability row, you'd have an easy placement where the list could grow naturally as features was determined as necessary to add to the template. Edit: The obvious negative downside of this is that it wouldn't allow us to include it in the Availability table unless we redesigned that entirely and added new parameters to it.
  5. Because we don't currently have a good way to handle these sorts of supplementary features, I opted to create a new template that allows setting these properties and embeds the results in a {{ii}} bullet point, with the intention of the template being used just below the availability table. The reason why I opted for this and not the Notes section of the availability table was because I believe the field can otherwise become quite lengthy in text if there's other notes that needs to be mentioned there. That said, all that needs to be changed for the template to be compatible and used directly in the Notes field is the removal of the {{ii}} bullet point, and nothing else. Preview: Properties: Property:Microsoft Store Game Pass Property:Microsoft Store Play Anywhere Templates: Template:Microsoft Store features Template:Microsoft Store features/Documentation

    Is it allowed to add a DX12 games list to the wiki?

    References should go in the "direct3d notes" field, and not the "direct3d versions" field, of the API template. The "direct3d notes" field is limited to only supported values, as anything else will screw up the backend connections. Only remove listings if you've actually confirmed that they do not support DirectX 12 on your own, or you find a concrete source mentioning that it doesn't. PCGW generally assumes that edits are accurate despite a lack of reference, so to remove ones that are "suspicious" you'll have to find a concrete source confirming the suspicions. Feel free to add {{cn}} in the notes field to flag that a citation is needed, though.

    I don't think this is really the case any longer, based on my testing with my Hi-Res Audio certified DAC and headset. That DAC have a visual indicator that showcases what sample rate and bit depth, and in shared mode it will _always_ output as the selected format according to what I've selected in the Advanced tab of the output device (24 bit, 96 000 Hz). In exclusive mode through WASAPI it'll output whatever format is configured in the player, regardless of the source itself (tested and verified using Foobar2k and the foo_out_wasapi plugin.

    Sui is a PCGW moderator. See the https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/PCGamingWiki:Staff page for confirmation (or just visit the Discord channel). That said, the reason I included the latency is because I believe it has the highest likeliness of translating over to PC gamers. Generally speaking, audio improvements is not something a lot of gamers really understand unless they have knowledge or interest in audiophile or professional audio setups or equipment. Latency, however, is something that translates well due to its importance for PC gamers in pretty much everything (monitors, input, connectivity, etc). Much like the rest of the Glossary pages, it could use an introduction and general information about sound in video games etc. A bunch of these glossary pages don't really have a "point" beyond being a dumpster used for stuff semi-related to the name of the page.

    I think it's mostly fine, although a minor rewrite would be good: Current: Rewritten: Leaving the DRM and introduction of WASAPI aspect out of it because it isn't really _that_ important, and it is still sorta covered by the inclusion of a reference to this thread of yours. Please tell me what you think :)
