  3. In that case, we can wait a few days until the smoke clears or focus on older titles instead. On a side note, turns out it is possible to link to every page and get a decent following. Not that it would recommend it though. It simply doesn't fit the context and formatting of the system.
  4. In the context of the setup, that makes no sense. The purpose of the curation system is to provide recommendations on games to play (our page tagline: "A recommend list of the best PC games available from the PC Gaming Wiki Mod Team"). To just tag every game as "recommended" is guaranteed to make the list useless, resulting in no followers. Anyways, the Enhanced Steam addon already provides links to the relevant articles here. The best approach is to list games that are natively great PC games, new titles of interest (promote article contributions), and OK ports that can be easily fixed.

  12. For a fairly old guide, the article and list in question feels too sparse to be useful. It doesn't help that the markup for the list is not noob friendly. Simply put, they need an update badly. Should the list be upgraded to project status (i.e. promote contributions with increased coverage on the front page)?
  13. Version 5.52.164.0

    Original source: ReactOS Forums This is a generic 32-bit version of the InstallShield 5 setup engine. This file can be used as a replacement installer for games that use 16-bit versions of InstallShield 5. To determine if the game uses InstallShield, check the list of files that are in the setup directory (normally, there should be a dedicated folder for the installer somewhere on the game disk). If the file "_inst32i.ex_" is included, then the game uses InstallShield in some form. From there, the version of the installer currently used needs to be verified to ensure that the replacement file will work. In the setup folder, find a "SETUP.EXE", "SETUP32.EXE", or other similarly named files. Once the installer is found, right click it, select "Properties", and go to the "Version"/"Details" tab. If the "Product version" and/or "File version" fields have a value along the lines of 5.xx.xxx.x, then the game uses version 5 of the setup engine and is compatible with this file. For specific details on installer use, check the game article that requires it. For generic instructions, check the link at the top of this description.
  14. Adding on to what I mentioned earlier, I think there also needs to be some extra "stores" that are available as options to catch the more niche downloads: ModDB (we do have some pages for mods) Fansite (a general catch-all for downloads like Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun that are hosted on fan-run but legal sites) PC Gaming Wiki (games like Sega Swirl and Ground Control are hosted on our site. Would make sense to be able to link to ourselves) Just curious, but how would this feature be implemented? Would it be an in-house solution or using an external site like CheapShark or IsThereAnyDeal.com (ex. Enhanced Steam addon)?

  16. What exactly would a proper guide cover? I've seen some of the mod's dev pages have their own personal guide on the sample page. Would it be a complete breakdown of the sample page, along with other smaller aspects such as link positioning, file naming conventions, and fixbox layouts? This sounds like something that I might be able to tackle on the side. That being said, it would be a while until it could be considered complete.
  17. DRM at its core is copy protection and that's exactly what physical anti-piracy measures are: ensuring that the user has a valid copy of the game and not a bootleg. Even if such methods of protection are easily circumvented today, they are still not completely DRM-free. Such a label should be reserved for games that have NO copy protection, digital or not. We should have a separate category for these games as no other existing category can satisfy them. That, and a significant portion of DOS games use this method of protection (it would look sloppy to have all DOS-related articles with "DRM-free" and a note stating it has physical protection). As for potential icon designs, here are some ideas I have: A code wheel (Ex. Dial-A-Pirate from The Secret of Monkey Island) A map or code list with a magnifying glass off to a corner (some games like The Colonel's Bequest included a code list printed on special paper that can only be read with magnifying glasses bundled with the game) A map or code list (no magnifying glass) A game manual open to a page with a code clearly visible A game manual open to a page with a magnifying glass off to a corner A game manual (front cover only) A lock around a CD icon (i.e. the lock is looped through the hole in the CD) Some more ideas on the types of physical copy protection that existed can be found on Wikipedia.
  18. Looking through the list of DRMs available, I noticed that there is no option for physical piracy protection for games like Space Quest or The Secret of Monkey Island (i.e. In order to complete the game, a random code must be entered in. The code can be found either in the manual or with special items included with the game). It's not exactly a CD key as it needs to be entered in for each new game. What would be the proper category for such games?
  19. The Systems Requirements table is a very useful part of the articles, especially with older titles. Finding such information elsewhere more often then not comes in a sloppy or incomplete format. A better layout would to replace all graphics-related fields (excluding GPU names and VRAM amount) with the table (located right underneath the Sys Req. tables).
