Subpages?[edit]

Is there a particular reason that this Wiki prefers subpages to using heading breaks? I use Wikipedia a lot and having to make a subpage for any particular section of a guide seems a little odd to me. MichaelAB 22:50, 22 May 2007 (CDT)

Yes, we have a template called the {{Header Nav}}, this uses sub pages to put the table of contents on every page, just click on the show button, and if we didn't have sub-pages then it would be annoying specifying the Table Of Contents--Rocky http://media.strategywiki.org/images/thumb/7/78/Rally-X_Rock.png/25px-Rally-X_Rock.png (Talk - Contributions) 00:52, 23 May 2007 (CDT)

To-Do[edit]

Here are a couple of things I am going to try to do.

  1. Try to make a character template to use for all of the character pages.
  2. I want to put in details about the special item locations (mission discs and sketch books)
  3. Also, I am going to try to break down the gestures used in for each power in the Wii version. (Save your self. Don't buy that version. The gesture system is annoying.)

Anyone have any other ideas? MichaelAB 23:10, 22 May 2007 (CDT)

I'm completely unfamiliar with the game, but could those gestures possibly be represented visually? We have numerous templates that are meant to replace the use of words or phrases such as "press the A button" with "press A button". If you could figure out how to make generic gestures of the few here, please upload them (try to keep them 24x24 if at all possible) and categorise them appropriately. I'll add them to {{Wii}} for future use for other games as well (since other games use gestures as well, which is why I would like them to be generic. For example, instead of an image with a foot and a Wiimote being thrusted forward to represent a kick, just have the Wiimote being thrusted forward). As for the character template, using {{prettytable}} may be helpful. Also, unless you are going to have a LOT of info on each character, just put them all on a central character page (Game/Characters). Unlockable characters can follow the spoilers template (make sure it has the "s" at the end, spoilers and spoiler are NOT the same). --Ryan SchmidtTalk - Contribs 15:14, 23 May 2007 (CDT)

Approaching this game.[edit]

I never realised that the sequel would come out near the end of September of 2009. So I finally decided to do a walkthrough. But sometimes I won't edit for a major while because I need to refamiliarize myself in this game and try not to forget the connection between heroes and villains. I'm actually at my best to have a hands on knowledge by playing the game first. Typing it down is hard so I'll be using gamefaqs as my game reference and interpret what goes on in the game. Well, I hope there isn't a lot of pressure and I hope the front page of the article could use a makeover so it won't be a stub. That's my opinion and not exactly a comment you want to hear but people reading this will get the idea at what I'm trying to do here. If you guys want to help me, just get yourself this game and start helping me on it. Johnnyauau2000 10:35, 17 September 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for working on this guide! I don't have the game, but I will help out with cleanup and whatnot. A pointer for you on editing: it would be helpful if you put some ==Level 2== headings in longer pages to break up the content a bit. It makes it much easier on the reader and if they're meaningful, they can help someone find the part they need. Keep up the hard work, and good luck! — najzereT 15:50, 17 September 2009 (UTC)
Ok. Just don't try to shatter my confidence. I should be keeping it to myself but I don't want to be known as a liar. Since there's no place for a diary, what else can keep me from being insane? I just wish that DrBob is still around to help but that's ok. I hope there aren't any hard feelings. One that did shatter my confidence is the score Gamespot give to the Wii version which is a shocking 4.5 (Sequel to this game). I know I shouldn't believe in that stuff but on second thoughts, I'll just finish the first one and not worry about the sequel to this game. Johnnyauau2000 09:28, 18 September 2009 (UTC)

Marvel Ultimate Alliance doing well so far.[edit]

If you minus pictures in guides, it kind of works so far. But doing all these characters is going to take some kind of miracle. My confidence is low at the moment but since my favourite is Elektra, I'm going to do her first after I get some rest and gather up some notes that I can use to put on the page. Also give some background because people might be skeptical about her so how do I encourage someone that she's a good character to try out? Pretty much the same with Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance because doing character work is more interesting than writing a walkthrough without the pitfalls behind it. Forgive me as this is no place for a diary but I do need some things to keep my confidence up and the time to do it. If more people decide's to sign up in "Collaberation of the Month", it will make it easier to get through and then my work on this guide isn't a waste after all. No rush but a question of can you do it. That's all. Johnnyauau2000 16:00, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

Be careful of trying to convince anyone to use a particular character. If you simply give all the information, the pros as well as the cons, the reader should be able to make an informed decision for themselves. Your work on the guide won't ever be a waste, regardless of whether it becomes Collaboration of the Month—it's here to help whoever needs it, so you did a great job. :D — najzereT 16:04, 16 April 2010 (UTC)
Thanks. I'll try not to go too far or over the top. Maybe keep what's interesting with the basic info and the benefits of playing that character. Also "Collaberation" is not important but all the hard work does. I hope it does payoff and maybe say to myself "I did all this work and I'm proud of it". Despite anyone's concerns, I'll do my best to keep it well balanced and comfortable to read. Johnnyauau2000 17:37, 16 April 2010 (UTC)
