Fight Night Round 4 achievements[edit]

The achievements and trophies for the game use different images and the Xbox 360 version has more achievements – wouldn't it be easier for a PlayStation 3 user to see his trophies in a separate table instead of mixed in with 360 ones and the wrong images on some of the PS3 ones? Also, the PS3 version images are now orphaned. — najzereT 23:39, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

Achievement tables[edit]

I've been including a nowrap parameter in the table cell with the platinum trophy to prevent link breaks within the column, but the same issue is present with the gamerscore column as well. I think it would be a good idea to set the width on the gamerscore and trophy columns in the {{Achievements Header}} template to accommodate a three digit gamerscore and a platinum trophy, respectively. What do you think? — najzereT

Maybe it's just me, but do you think the tables would look better with both gamerscore and trophy columns the same width? — najzereT 23:54, 11 January 2010 (UTC)

Virtual Villagers 3: The Secret City[edit]

Hi there,

I just saw you modified my Banner for my Virtual Villagers 3: The Secret City guide. I want to know is this a strategy wiki norm or it's because my banner was too big? The problem is that it's pretty small on my screen resolution. Is there a way to make it bigger but still center ?

thank you very much

DJ K-Jtan 20:42, 17 January 2010 (UTC)

The problem is that at the banner's original width it caused the page contents to be shunted below the infobox on lower screen resolutions (like this). It is for this reason that we try to keep banner widths on the main page within reasonable limits (which is why {{marquee}} was created). Not all images look good at this lower size, but the alternative is even worse. This is less of an issue for subpages because there are no infoboxes there to shove images out of the way. --Garrett (talk) 22:37, 17 January 2010 (UTC)
Thank you for your reply. I understand why I need to shrink the width size. What is a good width size for an image? DJ K-Jtan 22:50, 17 January 2010 (UTC)

BS Zelda: Kodai no Sekiban/Printable version deletion[edit]

Hi, I've marked BS Zelda: Kodai no Sekiban/Printable version for deletion and see you are the main contributor. Is this page necessary for any reason, or is it a holdover from Wikibooks or an earlier era of StrategyWiki? Just wanted to give you a heads up. Thanks, — najzereT 18:58, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

searchresulttext[edit]

What was it showing up as before? -- Prod (Talk) 23:14, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

DLC question[edit]

I was under the impression DLC just went on the main guide. Is it based on how big they are? For instance, I would have added the DLC achievements and trophies for GTAIV to the GTAIV achievements and trophies page like we've done for other ones. Just wondering if there was a standard or if we take them on a case by case basis. Thanks, — najzereT 21:01, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

According to wikipedia it appears to be an expansion, not a DLC. -- Prod (Talk) 21:06, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
The GTAIV episodes are major DLC, comparable to a PC expansion. They are even sold separately from the main game (as Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City). The Oblivion expansions are listed separately too (they are DLC for the consoles but retail for the PC). --Garrett (talk) 21:10, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
What's the differentiation between a major DLC and a regular one (is there a label as such somewhere)? -- Prod (Talk) 21:21, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
Um, er, not really. "DLC" is a catch-all term for everything from Horse Armor to an entirely new game chapter. Figuring this out is a case-by-case deal for sure. As a general rule, if it's the sort of thing that on the PC would have traditionally been sold in stores it's expansion-level DLC; similarly, if the PC gets it as a retail expansion but the consoles just get it as DLC it counts as an expansion. --Garrett (talk) 22:57, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

Good to know, guys, thanks! — najzereT 21:24, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

ME2 Vehicle[edit]

I noticed you added in controls for a vehicle on Mass Effect 2. I'm almost to the end of the game now and I've yet to encounter a pilotable vehicle anywhere (though I know there is the Hammerhead, I don't believe it's out yet). Where do you encounter a controllable vehicle in the game? If I can find it, I can figure out its controls and add them. — TheTwantalk 21:49, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

There are no usable vehicles in the base game, so these will be for the Hammerhead DLC. They were listed in the PC version's control customisation section. The Xbox vehicle controls are logical guesses based on other control similarities and may not be correct. --Garrett (talk) 22:37, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for the quick response. Just wanted to be sure I wasn't missing something.  :D — TheTwantalk 23:26, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

Pokemon Platinum logo.png deletion[edit]

Hi, an image you've uploaded: Image:Pokemon Platinum logo.png has been marked for deletion. Just wanted to notify you before deleting it. Thanks, — najzereT 20:23, 8 February 2010 (UTC)

Kongregate badges[edit]

Hi, I marked Monsters' Den: The Book of Dread/Badges for deletion, which I think is a scope issue that needs to be cleared up. I've added it to the noticeboard, so hopefully everyone can give their thoughts since any consensus could very well be applied to other similar instances in the future. Thanks, — najzereT 20:04, 12 February 2010 (UTC)

BS Zelda[edit]

Does ZW:BS The Legend of Zelda: Triforce of the Gods need a guide here? -- Prod (Talk) 05:56, 21 March 2010 (UTC)

Is that the proper name? Does it need a categorized redirect? -- Prod (Talk) 17:53, 21 March 2010 (UTC)
Sounds good. I've created a standard redirect so that ZW links to the right places. -- Prod (Talk) 20:18, 21 March 2010 (UTC)

Achievements Header double image column[edit]

Hi, I had an idea about games with very different achievement and trophy images (instead of just a couple): Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection#Achievements and trophies. This could be handled fairly easily in the template by switching out the cell width with an optional parameter. I like this layout a little better than floating the alt. images in the description cell, because they belong in the "picture" column and this way you don't have to decide which system's images get the main placement. I also like it better than a completely separate table as it avoids redundancy and page length. Let me know what you think. :) — najzereT 16:38, 23 April 2010 (UTC)

Upcoming meeting[edit]

As a reminder, there is a meeting this Saturday, May 29, on IRC taking place at 2:00pm EDT (UTC -4). As always, agenda is available on the forums, so you may view it and suggest additions there. Hope to see you there! --Skizzerz 04:01, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

When you updated the Table of Contents for Rolling Thunder...[edit]

...did you not see that I had marked the Controls and Enemies pages for deletion, as I have merged their content into a single page (Rolling Thunder/Getting Started)? Namcorules 15:30, 21 June 2010 (UTC)

Achievements/trophy template[edit]

How close are we to rolling this out? What else needs to be done for this template? — najzereT 13:24, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

Rename request[edit]

Could you rename me to simply "James"? That user has not made any edit to this wiki, so it can be usurped (rename that user to something else) Sheriff James B. McDonaldbad guys 01:49, 6 July 2010 (UTC)

Fable/Locations[edit]

Can you please add this page to the ToC? -- Prod (Talk) 05:23, 17 February 2011 (UTC)

Looks like Gothic II/How to Get Into the City of Khorinis is also missing from its guides ToC. Can I leave that with you as well? -- Prod (Talk) 07:14, 17 February 2011 (UTC)
Following up on these two again. -- Prod (talk) 23:38, 16 March 2016 (UTC)
I have merged the Gothic II page into Gothic II/Khorinis. Fable/Locations ideally needs to be mostly split into the other pages. I've linked it on the Table of Contents for now.
Thanks! I'm hoping my ToC validating bot will eventually get to 0 misses. Dealing with the fighting games now. -- Prod (talk) 04:39, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

Uncategorized files[edit]

A few of your uploaded images were only in ;Category:Items, and as that category has been deleted, they've now fallen into Special:UncategorizedFiles. Can you re-cat the Zelda ALttP images? -- Prod (Talk) 22:17, 23 April 2011 (UTC)

Box art question[edit]

Hey, I see you were moving the Sega Smash Pack guides around and fixing categories, and this image was left with the Sega Smash Pack image category, although it's not on that guide page. The old category (Sega Smash Pack (Game Boy Advance) images) was deleted, but the image is actually on that guide page. Just wondering if this was intended or if it was looked over in the shuffle. Cheers, — najzereT 07:08, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

I had missed that one. Thanks for the heads up. :) Garrett (talk) 07:41, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

how do you add? Thank you. --Hidermountains 03:48, 7 September 2011 (UTC)

Re: Circle Pad Pro controls for {{3ds}}?[edit]

I might do that later. I'm wondering how to distinguish the images for the second Circle Pad — should it just have a black back part and an 'R' on it? What should the syntax be — {{3ds|Neutral|RCpad}}? {{3ds|Neutral|Rpad}}? {{3ds|Neutral|CpadPro}}? {{3ds|Neutral|Cpad2}}? Wanderer 18:43, 5 December 2011 (UTC)

Alright, how's this? Wanderer 02:46, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

assassin's creed maps[edit]

Frames look better; caption should say click to enlarge because each picture is ginormous (this is my suggestion after reviewing things for 30 seconds). --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 05:34, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

Sysycat[edit]

Aren't the MSX and MSX2 separate systems? -- Prod (talk) 05:17, 26 June 2012 (UTC)

Cool thanks :). Only reason I ask is because my "collection" of games is split between 1/2 only. But I'll leave it to you. -- Prod (talk) 06:30, 26 June 2012 (UTC)
