New Space for Software?


Recommended Posts

I think that maybe you could add a space for Software, like what Steam offers (Action!, Wallpaper Engine, RPG Maker, etc) and do the same as you do with games. Offer guides, suggestions, bug fixes, essential improvements and so on.

We already do that, provided the tool in question is relevant for the game pages we cover and is "battle-tested" and commonly used.

For example these are some of the more prominent of such pages we have:

Each of those pages have quite a high degree of relevancy and so is linked to from various other places on the wiki.

Action! and Wallpaper Engine are not really of the same type of tool or information as the above listed pages though, so their lack of inclusion is understandable from that perspective.

  • Wallpaper Engine is neither a game nor a modding tool/app or such. It's only relevance to "PC gaming" is that it's well-known/popular among that audience and is distributed through Steam.
  • Action! is ultimately just a recording/streaming utility which is something we currently don't cover either. If we were to mention Action on the wiki it would probably be as an alternative on a general-purpose glossary page on the topic of recording/streaming games, alongside other alternatives such as Shadowplay, Windows DVR, Discord, etc.

Ahhhh, I see. I thought as such it was any tool that could be said to be essential for a pc gamer. And in that case, is it possible that one could create the entry for "Action!"?
