  1. Either someone fixed it or it fixed itself but I don't need this anymore.
  2. I was trying to update the image to the correct resolution (600x300) but it broke, can someone fix it.
  3. It's crap, every page is filled to the brim with these things, there's no reason as to why we should add sources to every single fixbox. pls fix 👌
  4. Capitalize all, no stylization, I would even remove the ":" (two dots) from any titles, that way most pages would open directly instead of using redirects, it would also look cleaner. The wiki search algorithm sucks, this isn't Google where you can drunkenly type whatever you want and still find your result, if I can streamline the search process I'm all up for it. I would also like to see tables and headers with proper capitalization ("and, of, the" etc, would not be capitalized in the tables). I wouldn't mind experimenting with this, but people on the wiki are kinda stubborn when it comes down to any changes. If it was up to me we could play around with it and see what works better.
  5. It's just extra clutter, and the wiki uses it's own ratings anyway. Fixes also often need to be cleaned up if we use anything from their pages, I feel like the video tables would look nicer without the question mark clutter when a new page is made, it can be a bit of a pain to fill up the tables seeing as not every game is present on WSGF making the ratings even more pointless. Knowing what rating a game has on WSGF won't really help me with a game issue. I bet that the average user doesn't really care, most people want to find a quick fix for whatever problem they might be having with a game. I don't see any downsides with removing this system from the wiki, pages would look cleaner, editors would have less work to do and users would also benefit seeing as there would be less information to sort through.
  6. Could be malware, cheap marketing or even propaganda by the united states, either way I wouldn't bother, people can just pirate the game or something, the developers aren't getting your money anyway. That page on the archive even leads to an ad link, the whole thing is just shady. Just keep it off the page, there's no confirmation that this is real in any way
  7. Could add it to the infobox of most games on GOG if someone wants to update the template for it. I don't have access to that stuff so I can't really do it, should contact Garrett. Also wish the current icons were updated, they are really inconsistent. There's also the IRC if you want to nag someone to add it to the wiki. https://community.pcgamingwiki.com/page/irc
  8. Could the Closed Caption thing just be removed? It's barely used for anything and most text could just fit in the subtitles field. It's not like TV Closed Captions where they are automated, Half Life 2 calls them closed captions but they are still subtitles in the end, just with a bunch of extra stuff. I really don't see the point, it's confusing and it's just extra clutter. Could always use the note field for anything more specific.

  10. What do you need to enable on Tomb Raider? I can't picture what you are asking. Anyway it should be kept simple, Hackable for anything outside, Native for anything inside. Most editors are going to be confused if we add too many exceptions. If things get a bit too overly specific it might lead to more convoluted edits, along with edit wars as to why "this thing should be like this because I said so" which can go on forever. I have no idea what your actual problem is with Tomb Raider anyway.

  12. Is there a database with all these files? They could have an empty "LastOwner" value in them if needed. Could they be automatically generated on the fly if the user didn't know what needs to be setup? (Where the hell does the "be" go, I can never tell). This is what an AppManifest file looks like. "AppState" { "appid" "3720" "Universe" "1" "name" "Evil Genius" "StateFlags" "4" "installdir" "Evil Genius" "LastUpdated" "1474640799" "UpdateResult" "0" "SizeOnDisk" "1426713902" "buildid" "250756" "LastOwner" "0" "BytesToDownload" "0" "BytesDownloaded" "0" "AutoUpdateBehavior" "0" "AllowOtherDownloadsWhileRunning" "0" "UserConfig" { "language" "english" } "MountedDepots" { "3721" "1394410883735965698" "3722" "3042191399206832395" } }
  13. If the game itself doesn't list the controls in any way a dropdown table with every key could be made, screenshots could also be used and listed in galleries on the wiki, they shouldn't take too much space. http://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Transformers:_Devastation#Input_settings I don't know, I wouldn't mind seeing something like this on the wiki, I don't have any control over these decisions though. This wiki feature could always be enhanced in the future if the first implementation wasn't too great.
  14. In some cases directly capping the framerate can make the game run worse, sometimes VSync should be used as an alternative method if the game is running worse. (check the frametimes with something like MSI Afterburner to see if they game has micro stuttering)
  15. The Video Settings table is for more generic video settings which all games should have, being able to change the resolution and field of view are essential things, anything else is too specific. There would also be too much clutter at this point and it would hurt readability, we should focus on using screenshots instead. Games like Serious Sam would have insanely long tables if we listed every single setting.
  16. I would've made the report myself but I had a terrible month, I had no sleep at all and I need like 40 - 60 hours to do a proper report, I still need to publish the Call of Duty Infinite Warfare report, it was completed but there's a bunch of missing stuff. I had such horrible sleep though...
  17. If you want to you could add a keypoint by yourself on any pages where it makes sense, there are no global texts though so this is going to be kinda tedious to edit unless you make a list of the pages you changed. You could edit the VSync page and add an {{ii}} at the top and write what you felt was important. Copy this and paste it at the top of the page. '''Key Points''' {{ii}} Your Text I mentioned something related to this screen tearing thing a while ago on this page. http://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Glossary:Borderless_fullscreen_windowed#Windows "Eliminates screen tearing on Windows due to V-Sync being applied over any windows by default." https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/b367a457.aspx It's too hidden, I also need to rewrite it, I don't really feel like editing things around at the moment though, most pages on the wiki look really bad and in most cases some of the more obscure pages aren't used that often, the current skin also isn't too great which is a little bit off putting in my mind, the wiki looks kinda ugly at the moment, there are a lot of issues I also have with the wiki, I don't have the will to mass edit things at the moment.
