What's the reason for the blacklisting of FilePlanet?

Garrett (talkcontribs)

I missed your message earlier (I haven't been as active here lately). I blacklisted the current/new FilePlanet because most of the real downloads there seem to have been replaced with an adware downloader (has offers for Avast, Opera, WinZip, etc. before actually downloading the file)--in some cases it seems to finish the process without actually downloading the real file at all (which maybe doesn't even exist on the server end or something).

The Archive Team made a complete FilePlanet backup back when IGN originally announced the site was being closed, so it should be possible to grab any needed files by matching up the old URL IDs to these known clean sources and then upload those files to the Files section here.

Ok, thanks!

I've been off-wiki for a bit, the accessibility template is something that got proposed but never finished; I'll make a fuller reply on the forum topic.

Question about the Origin Redeemed keys

1 (talkcontribs)
I know this has been years ago but you're my only hope.
Have you tried to reinstall any of the redeemed games through their respective discs?
In the wiki it says that Burnout Paradise may become unplayable Online outside of Origin. Does that means the other games will still be playable outside of Origin?
I'm asking it specifically in regards to retail/box/physical DVD keys.

Regarding activation of old retail games on Origin

TheBACH (talkcontribs)

Hello Garrett, nice to meet you! I have good news regarding this list

A few days ago I bought a copy of The Goodfather II retail (2€ here in Italy). I tried to activate the game using the Origin launcher with no success, like a lot of people have been saying. Than I tried to activate the game through the Origin's web page ( and it worked! I don't know if this can help, but meaby you can suggest to try to redeem the "Redeemable through support" games even through the Origin's web page first.

Also, do you know what's the deal with older games than 2009? Can I add to Origin retail games such as NFS Underground 2, C&C: Renegade, or the first Crysis, just using the their retail game key? As someone tasted with older games than 2009? Any luck or results you can tell/know about? I can't found clear facts about this matter on the net...

Ty Garrett.

Garrett (talkcontribs)

I haven't worked on this list in some time, so a lot of it may be missing or out of date (I also don't really have many EA games from outside Origin to test with). As always, feel free to expand/improve/correct/etc. as needed.

Anyways, if you find any hidden Steam games or demos i would greatly appreciate if you would add them to my list. (User:Diskersen2/Hidden Steam games)

hey uhhhh i'm not sure but i think using xpadder or antimicro for a game that has no controller support should count as hackable, also your bot is out of fucking control and appears to change anything that can be hacked into false

Garrett (talkcontribs)

Basically any game can be made to work with a controller program, so this is considered to be false unless the fix is something that was specifically put together for that game (this is also why this and some other settings link to the appropriate glossary page when set to false with no note specified).

I'd been meaning to leave you a message about the bot changes. This is similar to the above, e.g. some of the generic AA/AF forcing methods and such are typically left at false (since this will work in most cases) unless it is something specific to the game, e.g. only a very particular method will work (this is briefly covered in the editing guide although it could probably be explained better). Similarly, if none of the forcing methods actually work for a game a note can be added for that setting explaining the issue.

If you have any other questions or thoughts about this feel free to ask.

Thanks about the problem of Latin American Spanish translation of Doom 2016

Carlos38841 (talkcontribs)

Its really anonying why Bethesda doesnt want to solve this problem, at least its reported.

Garrett (talkcontribs)

I didn't find this issue myself, I just rearranged it on the page.

I haven't played this game myself but going by this Steam discussion topic it may be possible to get it working by selecting "Spanish (Spain)" and then rearranging some files to actually play in the other translation. If that works the page could be updated with that workaround.

Carlos38841 (talkcontribs)

NOpe, we literally try everything, the configuration of Doom 2016 doesnt support file Swaping, because the game doesnt execute the translation if the hash of the localization archives is not the correct: Doom use Steam Criteria to put the language. Its not like many other game with Latin american translation that let Windows put the criteria to use what translation you want. And that is an Inheritance from Denuvo that "at some way" persist on Doom (even if Denuvo its not anymore on the .exe) (talkcontribs)

Hi this is a bit random but I have been trying to get an old pc game called ozone by electronic arts. I see you did the wiki page for it. Is it possible to get the game?

Garrett (talkcontribs)

This game isn't sold digitally, so you'd need to find a second-hand retail copy somewhere.

Diskersen (talkcontribs)

Hey, i'm trying to go through User:Garrett/No languages. Would you mind updating the list? Kind regards.

Garrett (talkcontribs)

I have made some template changes so this list is now updated automatically.
