  1. This wiki provides lots of info on patches, fixes and ways to tune the game to work on pc. But as someone who plays kb+m, it's difficult to find ways to tell if a ported game managed to convert controller prompts to kb+m equivalents. Any chance we could add this information to wiki's for games ported to pc?
  2. I've had the idea that the infoboxes should somewhere contain information about a game's save system, since there are a lot of different ways games handle it: - Roguelikes (dying completely resets you, but you retain certain benefits) - Hardcore-modes where dying deletes your savegame, e.g. "Trial of Iron" mode in Pillars of Eternity 2 - Only at the start of each level, e.g. Freespace 2 - Only checkpoint / autosave, e.g. most modern shooters - Checkpoints that can be manually activated several times, e.g. Resident Evil typewriters or sleeping in Kingdom Come: Deliveran
  3. Today more than ever, (fast) storage space is expensive. One thing that always makes me mad is the insane amount of unused Localizations, game modes (often dead/closed multiplayer modes) that are installed by default - this is literally dead content. Wasted storage. Wasted money. Now back in ye old days, it used to be a gigabyte at best. Not the end of the world, and not exactly worth the time investment. But old habits die hard, and I'm still doing it today. With games becoming larger and larger, storage has become an issue that can thankfully be alleviated. I'm going to list a few
  4. Proposal to show support of Steam Family Sharing on the Wiki pages, as some games do not support Steam Family Sharing (this is the most recent list I could find) and this could be useful information to be recorded.
  5. This is follow on from my post on the Special K Steam Discussions, but expanded to include other third party tools such as Re:shade. Link to Steam Discussion thread: https://steamcommunity.com/app/1157970/discussions/0/2650881941771332222/ Reply from: @Aemony
  6. Reviews are a very important part of 'discovery' of what game to play. How much more useful would our lists be if we could filter or sort by Metacritic score? Metacritic includes the Critic score which tends to be fairly static after release. There is also the User Score which tends to fluctuate a lot, even years after release, or is subject to review bombing. I would be happy to include both. Potentially, Metacritic scores would sit inside the Infobox, with a link directly to the relevant Metacritic page. The values themselves could be gleaned from Wikidata, or another autom
  7. Proposal to remove wikis from General information and the Editing guide. Wikis were included because generally speaking there was 'the one' wiki everyone used. However with the advent of massive wikifarms, a single game could have several wikis associated with it. Problems: Inconsistencies with 'community wiki' / 'official wiki' terminology - meaningless as all wikis are community wikis Wikis don't offer technical information If a wiki contains a good technical page, this could be linked to separately Proposed solution: Remove any game wikis from Genera
  8. In the beginning, PCGamingWiki shied away from including classification of games because we were focused only on fixes - we weren't interested if a game was a 'third person shooter' or a 'first person shooter' - we just wanted FOV fixes, widescreen fixes, etc. However I think things could be improved - taking a queue from Wikipedia: Modes: Firstly with the way the tables work, some genres don't require 'FOV' fixes for example 2D games. Or an 90s adventure game doesn't need an 'Inverted Y-Axis' option etc. A mode property would allow us to restrict certain tables so that
  9. Support for batch uploads could improve the speed of which users upload multiple screenshots for use in the articles. This seems at first glance as a relative easy feature to implement, as the functionality is already provided through extensions to MediaWiki: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Category:Bulk_upload Possible concerns: How does this relate to the new backend for images and thumbnails? Does the extension need to have support to make use of the DigitalOcean Space? A few months ago when I tried to do something similar using multiple tabs I would often hit an err
  10. This seems like an important setting, especially with the prominence of high-PPI UHD monitors. True: Has option to change scaling settings. May or may not automatically scale based on selected resolution. Example: SWTOR Always on: Is automatically scaled based on resolution, but has no manual setting. Example: Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga Limited: Only scales certain elements (ex: graphics but not text), or cannot be scaled beyond a certain percentage of the base resolution. Example: Half-Life 2 False: Is not scaled and does not have an option to scale. Can't th
  11. Example of where it would be useful: https://pcgamingwiki.com/w/index.php?title=The_Elder_Scrolls_III%3A_Morrowind&type=revision&diff=716310&oldid=716303
