About this board

Not editable

Yeshmon (talkcontribs)

Hello, there are a few games under which I would like to add Hebrew as a language localization.

Would it be possible to add it as a supported language on this site so I can do so? Thank you.

I accidently uploaded an image without changing the name.

Hey, I deleted the image. In the future, you can mark an image or article by changing their contents to {{delete}}. This tags it into a special category for moderators to review.

Ambassadorlazer (talkcontribs)

Ah, thanks. I'll keep that in mind next time! :) (talkcontribs)

Hey man, I saw you reverted my first edit for Dark Forces II. I thought perhaps the fact you could still see the page was due to a region difference, but I've just checked the USA version of the page with a VPN and it still redirects to a 404 just as the GBR page does. Are you sure your cache isn't causing you to still see the page?

Baronsmoki (talkcontribs) (talkcontribs)

This is really weird. I tried Opera browser as well and got the same problem. Dark Forces II and Jedi Outcast don't even come up in the search results except on the USA version of Origin, where they still go to 404s.

I can't explain this one.

Baronsmoki (talkcontribs)

I asked a few users on PCGW Discord to try the link, and the link works for some but not others. Seems likely it's a regional availability issue. (talkcontribs)

Aye. Should we add a note to the Origin section to clarify this?

Baronsmoki (talkcontribs)

Sure, go for it.

Sorry getting so late to this, but I saw your revision to SEUM and changed it back with some caveats that it does run from its .exe if no Steam installed, Steam is renamed, or if you use a funky steam_appid.txt file to its root directory (I just learned that trick from Lateemu). Try it out to confirm, but seems to run without Steam required now.

Baronsmoki (talkcontribs)

Yep, adding the steam_appid.txt file worked. Thanks for adding the instructions to the page.

Limba1 (talkcontribs)

Good to hear and very welcome!

Informed user about HDR editing guidelines

PCFPCGW (talkcontribs)

Hi, I saw you edited the Midnight Fight Express page to say that Special K doesn't count as hackable for HDR. I'm curious as to why because it produces pretty legitimate results and, to me at least, doesn't seem any different from using any other external program to force other graphics options. Could you explain this to me? Thanks

Baronsmoki (talkcontribs)

Hey, see the editing guide:

"If an alternative method is required, such as Special K's HDR retrofit or Auto HDR, set this field to false as that will automatically populate a link to the glossary page."

Hello, I believe I added the save data location to the Gotham Knights page back in 2022. But now, looking at my history, I only see two ancient edits of Batman Arkham Knight page. Can you tell if I'm trippin', or have my edits to the Gotham Knights page been removed, deleted or erased? How many of my contributions went to live in PCGW Valhalla?

There is a strange edit made by nobody in the history of Gotham Knights page that adds the save file location and a number of other changes. It is written that it is "import". Import from where?

What about cutscenes? Are there any black bars?

Hollow Knight Steam DRM

Lateemu (talkcontribs)

Hi, I saw you edited the Hollow Knight page a year ago to say that the Steam version now has DRM. You noted: " Running the game with Steam closed now forces the Steam client to open before the game will run." I just wanted to say that even if running the .exe of a game opens up Steam, that does not necessarily mean that the game has DRM. To check, you have to (after running the game at least once through Steam) remove or rename Steam.exe from your PC to see if this prevents the game from booting. If it does, you can try to add a steam_appid.txt file in the game's directory containing the game's Steam ID. If the game works after one or both of those steps without Steam starting up it does not have DRM. It is just a Steamworks title to make sure it integrates with Steam for achievements and such.

Limba1 (talkcontribs)

That is a cool trick, thanks! I'll check future games like that as well. I just added a similar note to SEUM: Speedrunners from Hell because that tricked worked with that one. Thanks again!

Lateemu (talkcontribs)

You're welcome!

Just Die Already File Location Verification Help

Termedbreadpcguy (talkcontribs)

Hi, I just made a new PCGamingWiki account because I wanted to backup my save games (I play on Windows) but couldn't find the file location for Just Die Already. After some searching, I believe I have found the locations for the Configuration files and the Save Data and I have it posted on the wiki page (the history gives multiple edits to me because I didn't know how to use the editing tools and didn't know there was a preview button). I would just like some help to verify that the locations I have found for the Just Die Already files on Windows are true

Shadow Tactics 144fps support main game + Aiko's Choice

Lynnk (talkcontribs)

I saw you verified previous claims on Shadow Tactics, the main game + Aiko's Choice and wanted to mention that there is specific 144fps/hz support for the game if you select "60" in the Video/VSync option. I am new to PCGW forum editing and only saw your name being available. I don't think it's laid out clearly in the Wiki and I personally had no idea how to do it until I just fiddled with the settings.

Baronsmoki (talkcontribs)

I only have a 60 Hz display, so I don't think I can test that. You're welcome to add a note to the video section.
