Sorry about my first edition

Hi! Sorry for the first edition of Mercenary Park (cosmetic item) on the Baseball cap/fi page.
I come to the wiki to ask to staff about the 3D module you use in the wiki, as the user User:Shahar told me that the module was originally from this wiki; however, when I tried to contact, I saw that I had to follow a series of steps before, and as I hardly know the saga I went to edit broken images. Then, I discovered that there were more pages in different languages and, seeing that you reversed my change, I did it correctly afterwards.
Staff to staff, sorry for the first inconvenience, I know it's frustrating to revert the changes and edit them again. I wish the best for your wiki, and I see that you have it very well structured and with hardly any bugs, congratulations! A22PG (talk) 16:31, 2 January 2024 (UTC)

Don't worry about it, I've made similar mistakes a few times in the past mostly with Bonesaw (map) and Brimstone (map) linking to Bonesaw and Brimstone respectively. It's better that you made the edit and bring the mistake to someone's attention than to not have made the edit and have the mistake be there until someone else found it. I also really don't mind reverting changes and editing them again.

I have a question

Hello Grampa Swood!

  I recently registered on wiki, but already made a couple of changes (60+ articles edited)

And i just want to know 2 things: 1) How much edits user must do to be nominated for Wiki-cap 2) And can any person ask somebody to nominate them? I hope i will do much more changes and maybe one day get nominated and just want to know more about it. P.S. i bad in english, if there any mistakes, sorry XD TSTH 17:46, 9 January 2024 (UTC)

1. There is no edit requirement for it, but that also does not mean 10 edits will grant the Cap.
2. Users should only nominate others if they think they truly deserve it. That being said, asking a friend of yours to nominate you will result in the nomination being removed.
Translators are able to nominate themselves, but this is only if they meet the requirements to do so.

With the Boxes

Hey, I am definitely going to need your help with the boxes part, whenever I attempt to add this in below: /Template:Border | image = Main menu soldier.png | image-size = 20px | title = General info | content = Hallo, und Willkommen this is my TF2 Wiki Page! I am an American guy living in the West. I am a sort of Medic Main, though I do play other classes a lot, I enjoy helping my teammates, so I like Medic. And I also like German and am learning it, so I like the German guy. I also enjoy playing Sniper, though most of the time when I am playing Sniper, I use the SMG most of the time. I have a steam account as well. I also play games other than TF2, such as Team Fortress Classic, Fortress Forever, w:Stellaris, w:Europa Universalis IV, w:Crusader Kings II, w:Deltarune (yes, I do play this mix of games) and many others. It always comes up with User:Tenth class gaming/Template:Border (I did remove the {} in order for it to show.) Do you know how to fix this?

Question about my Demonstration

Hello, if you remember, i made a demonstration for the Head Doctor taunt and i wonder what happend to it, or was it anything wrong with it. Thank you. Decimate (talk) 02:51, 1 February 2024 (UTC)

I'll put it on the page again and I'll notify Ashe.

Issue i'm facing

Hello Gramps, I'm currently starting to make edits for AR pages(I'm aware that it's deprecated) but meh why not, ok so my issue is that I can't change some elements and names in edit page, it's visible in the original page but wherever i look in edit mode, I can't change it, looking forward to hear your reply.

Acceonit (talk) 23:34, 8 February 2024 (UTC)

It's likely a template that you're looking for? Anything in curly brackets {{ }} is a template. To find these, simply take the text in the brackets and put it after "". For example, {{Painted variants}} would be on variants.
BLU Wiki Cap.png | s | GrampaSwood Praise the Sun! (talk) (contribs) 23:43, 8 February 2024 (UTC)
Also note that for Arabian pages, only existing translations should be edited. No new ones or anything.
BLU Wiki Cap.png | s | GrampaSwood Praise the Sun! (talk) (contribs) 00:34, 9 February 2024 (UTC)
I understand Acceonit (talk) 15:12, 9 February 2024 (UTC)
One last question, regard what you said: 'no new ones or anything', will that apply for crucial pages like unique, strange, critical etc.? Acceonit (talk) 15:30, 9 February 2024 (UTC)
Yes, no new ones at all.
BLU Wiki Cap.png | s | GrampaSwood Praise the Sun! (talk) (contribs) 15:31, 9 February 2024 (UTC)
One one last question hehe, sorry, will changing red links with english ones will be okay? Acceonit (talk) 15:50, 9 February 2024 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── You can ask as many questions as you like. Links should be to Arabic pages, but it may be better to not have a link if the page doesn't exist.
BLU Wiki Cap.png | s | GrampaSwood Praise the Sun! (talk) (contribs) 15:52, 9 February 2024 (UTC)

Will do, Thanks Acceonit (talk) 16:32, 9 February 2024 (UTC)
I guess I have to bother you more... sorry, so I noticed few things, most titles and statements are stored in a template, that's great, I can edit that but which one? and how can I know it's the original? for example, `السكاوت`, this how can I edit the original template of the Scout's AR Name?, another matter is translations.. for example Soldier in Arabic is الجندي but I have no clue.. why in someone's mindset to add it as صولجر, it makes no sense in arabic, i guess transliteration? ok but why? for foreign understanding? or just bad translation? can't really ask current ar translators, most of them appear to be 'dead'
Acceonit (talk) 22:01, 9 February 2024 (UTC)
Those translations are stored in the {{Dictionary}}. As for the Soldier translation, I don't speak Arabic so I can't tell you.

I wonder if this template I just made would be useful

Hello. I made {{UberCharge Cart}} template, and I want to know if it would be useful.

These are couple reasons I made this:

  • The information on Payload about being able to/not to push/block the cart while ubercharged by different mediguns is wrong, so I needed to fix it.
  • It CAN be described all in texts, but I thought it would take up unnecessarily large amount of space, but this template could save time and space at the same time for me and others.

Since I don't use IRC channel, and because I don't know any other staffs/mods, I want to know what your/others opinions are about the template, if it's unnecessary, and if there can be anything else to improve it.

User Nihil Sign Pfp.png Nihil ( Talk | Contributions ) 15:56, 12 February 2024 (UTC)

Also, describing all the informations in texts would be harder to see it by glance (which means it would need a lot more effort to read all texts) and understand it than describing all of them with the template.
"Intuition" is a key-word, I guess. I really hope to see any feedback from you and others.
User Nihil Sign Pfp.png Nihil ( Talk | Contributions ) 16:03, 12 February 2024 (UTC)
Seems good, but I'll make some minor changes first. Preferably, these should be made on userspace before being moved to main unless it's a pre-existing table.

Projectile Shield Cleanup

Hey Grampa, I've been working on fixing up the Projectile Shield strategy page to bring it up to Wiki standards and was hoping if you could let me know if it's goin alright as of right now? It's at User:Payn/ProjectileShieldCleanup. Please be brutally honest with your feedback, I want to make it as good as it could possibly be, as it is still a W.I.P. Payn (talk) 06:56, 14 February 2024 (UTC)

I would remove the Medic section in the class-specific strategy, and merge it with the general strategy, or remove the general strategy and merge it with the class-specific section. I also wouldn't put the Medic section at the top of the class-specific list, but rather at the usual placement. As for content-specific stuff, I'll have to go over it 1-by-1 to see if they're useful or not. You'll have to give me permission either here or using {{AllowedEditors}} on the page.
BLU Wiki Cap.png | s | GrampaSwood Praise the Sun! (talk) (contribs) 19:20, 14 February 2024 (UTC)
alright, understood. thanks grampa Payn (talk) 22:52, 14 February 2024 (UTC)
You have permission to edit now, I'll work on re-ordering everything. Thanks again, Grampa. Payn (talk) 23:09, 14 February 2024 (UTC)
I went over the whole page, should be fine now. Feel free to move it over if you have no more changes.

Mannpower Powerups template

Hi. I'm working on making a template for mannpower's powerups. The link is User:Nihil/Template:Mannpower powerups.
Main purpose is to make it easier to translate/edit powerup table, and to make the list on Mannpower section on List of game modes shorter and easier to read.
I gave you permission to edit just in case if you see anything to fix/improve (I think language transition part might not be right). It would be glad to get any feedback from you.

Also, is it possible to make this table a bit smaller when used on other pages? I think this table itself is enough for Mannpower page, but would be too big for List of game modes page.
Should I make another template to shrink it, or should I make it collapsible? Or maybe there can be other ways to make it fit for the page. I don't know what would be the best, or at least a better way.

I'm greatly thankful for your helps and advices, as always.
User Nihil Sign Pfp.png Nihil ( Talk | Contributions ) 06:50, 18 February 2024 (UTC)

Looks good to me. I would recommend either putting all the available translations in there already, or just not replacing them on pages that don't have support on the template yet. Otherwise, I fixed the translation switching template and commented it out (it adds a category by default).

Questions about korean localizations for {{other uses}} template


I've been using {{other uses}} template, and I have always wondered if there's any way to change the order of the parameter texts and the non-parameter texts.

It is really hard to explain to foreign people how Korean works even with examples, but here's an example:

If I use {{other uses|this=(text 1)|for=(text 2)|(text 3)}} on korean pages, it currently shows "이 문서는 다음에 관한 것입니다: (text 1), 혹시 이 문서를 찾고 계신다면: (text 2), 이 곳에서 볼 수 있습니다: (text 3)", which is not quite right (believe me).
The order should rather be "이 문서는 (text 1)에 대한 것입니다. 혹시 (text 2) 문서를 찾고 계신다면, (text 3)에서 볼 수 있습니다". You can see the parameter texts should be inside the non-parameter texts. Yes, I know you probably won't even understand why it is not quite right

tl;dr: I wonder if you, or people you know, know how to change the order of texts and parameters in the template specifically for korean, or if I should make another template for this.

I think making another template is easier than finding out how to change the order, but I wanted to ask you before doing anything.

User Nihil Sign Pfp.png Nihil ( Talk | Contributions ) 04:51, 19 February 2024 (UTC)

I believe some other languages had this problem too. Simply replace this template with {{Hatnote}} and write them out manually each time. It's unfortunate, but without changing up the whole template we can't do much about this. I'll see if I can do smth about it at some point.

Recently deleted edit to Super Zombie Fortress page

Hey i have a problem you deleted my contribution to the Super Zombie Fortress Wiki i added the image because it was different then Zombie Fortress. super zombie fortress and zombie fortress are the same gamemode but there is a difference uper zombie Fortress has looks based on left4dead while zombie fortress Does not have the theme of of super zombie fortress because it is missing the left4dead theme. i just want to know why you deleted my contribution to this part of the team fortress 2 wiki im not mad im just confused thanks for understanding my situation.

DocThenotable (talk) 21:24, 19 March 2024 (UTC)

As explained in the edit summary, the image didn't really show anything of note. It was a random screenshot taken on a part of a map where nothing of note could be seen. It just doesn't add much value to the page and seems very random.

New template

I made a new template you may want to check out. It is a template all about RGB. It would be useful for people that are used to RGB rather than HEX.
----User Slimyboi500 Logo.png User Slimyboi500 Profile.jpg Talk Speech voice.png Contribs Wrench IMG.png Steam Steam tray.png 17:23, 4 April 2024 (UTC)

Seems like this method is easier to use. The template is very big and basically repeats itself 3 times, it would be better to convert it to hex instead.

Blurry achivement images

I have been exploring the TF2 wiki when I came across to the achivements and I noticed that achivement images are either blurry or pixely. It can been seen on Achivements page. Is it from Steam exported or can it be changed to a high quality end? --Vinzesco (talk) 11:40, 14 April 2024 (UTC)

Could you show an image of what that looks like? The images are taken directly from the game's files, but if they look blurry it might be because you have your browser zoomed in. If I zoom in to 110% instead of the usual 100%, the icons turn blurry.
BLU Wiki Cap.png | s | GrampaSwood Praise the Sun! (talk) (contribs) 11:42, 14 April 2024 (UTC)
I am actually zoomed out and still blurry for me, In here can be seen cleary the two qualities don't match up (The "Welcome to the Internets" and "Fake an email from Robin").--Vinzesco (talk) 11:53, 14 April 2024 (UTC)
Perhaps going to the image itself would make a difference? File:Tf spy identity theft.png. They all look high quality to me

I have finally translated the Mechanics/hu

Could you check it up if I have made any misstakes or missing pieces? Just a quick look is enough.Thanks, --Vinzesco (talk) 21:46, 15 April 2024 (UTC)

I made some changes here. But there are many more instances of using redirect links rather than the actual pages, as well as a lot of overlinking. For example, it should be [[Minigun/hu|Gépágyú]], and not [[Gépágyú]]. There are still many more instances of that on the page that should be fixed. It's preferred to use {{item link}} and {{item name}} instead, which you seem to use later on. In the "Eszközök" section there is also an untranslated line, as well as (record FILENAME in the console) , amelyeket having a space after parenthesis, then 2 spaces after the comma (+ untranslated line in the brackets). Not sure if that's how Hungarian does it, but other examples don't do that. Remember to add {{lang icon}} after links that don't have translations (such as the Help:Recording demos page, and the VDC links).

Hi, as we talked about earlier, I am soon to begin working on a demo redo for the Cleaner's Carbine. I discussed my PC likely not being able to handle intensely high settings; you messaged me saying that the highest settings should suffice, but I beg to differ. If it's not a bother, and if it's something you're allowed to do, do you think you could write a config file that I could execute to tune my graphics settings to something that is not too high but still looks smooth on my hardware? For a point of reference here are my PC stats (these are from memory, hopefully they are accurate):

  • Intel Core i7 (not sure which model), 3.5 mHz, 4 cores
  • 16GB of DDR3 RAM
  • My PC runs on integrated graphics

Yours sincerely,

Scorchshotgaming Scorchshotgaming (talk) 19:15, 20 April 2024 (UTC)

I believe that turning up the graphics settings in the settings menu should suffice quality-wise, if your PC can't handle that then it may simply not be suitable for demonstrations, unfortunately.
BLU Wiki Cap.png | s | GrampaSwood Praise the Sun! (talk) (contribs) 19:17, 20 April 2024 (UTC)
Ok, once I obtain a Cleaner's Carbine from Scrap.TF, I'll try that. For the sake of performance, instead of directly screen recording it, I'll try and record a demo and then record it. Hopefully everything should go well. Scorchshotgaming (talk) 19:23, 20 April 2024 (UTC)
If recording the demo at the end is an issue, feel free to send it to me somewhere and I can record it.
BLU Wiki Cap.png | s | GrampaSwood Praise the Sun! (talk) (contribs) 19:23, 20 April 2024 (UTC)
Thanks, I'll talk to you later. Hopefully I should be done within a week or two. Scorchshotgaming (talk) 19:29, 20 April 2024 (UTC)
OK, I'll try:
  • Model quality: High
  • Texture quality: High
  • Shader detail: High
  • Shadow detail: Medium
Basically I'll do everything near-max settings and record the demo. But do demos actually capture with your own graphics and FOV settings or do they depend on the person watching it?
Yours sincerely,

Problems with weapon demonstration

Hi, I have tried to begin making my demonstration, however I have been facing some technical issues. If I install tr_karma_wiki and try to load it, the game will completely freeze before it can load the map. This has happened no matter how many times I have tried, in windowed and fullscreen mode. If I remove tr_karma_wiki and join a community server everything is fine. Do you have a solution?


Scorchshotgaming Scorchshotgaming (talk) 09:42, 21 April 2024 (UTC)

Where have you added the map? I only know that having a map in your custom folder can crash the game. Otherwise, I would have no idea, I assume it's something to do with the new 64-bit.
BLU Wiki Cap.png | s | GrampaSwood Praise the Sun! (talk) (contribs) 09:43, 21 April 2024 (UTC)
I put tr_karma_wiki.bsp in tf/maps. I'll try tf/custom, and if that doesn't work I'll just give up. Scorchshotgaming (talk) 09:45, 21 April 2024 (UTC)
tf/custom should not work, only tf/maps. Try adding -nosound in your launch options, apparently people are crashing upon joining if there's sound.
BLU Wiki Cap.png | s | GrampaSwood Praise the Sun! (talk) (contribs) 09:47, 21 April 2024 (UTC)
Again, the game freezes at "initializing resources"! To be honest, I might leave this demonstration on hold until I get this issue fixed somehow. Talk to you later. Scorchshotgaming (talk) 09:57, 21 April 2024 (UTC)
That's fair, does the game actually crash or just take a long time?

As far as I know, when it is nearly done at "initializing resources", I sit there for two minutes and it just does absolutely nothing. I think it's just frozen. Maybe it's a fault with tr_karma, or I just didn't install it correctly. Either way, this demo is on hold for a bit until I can figure this out. Scorchshotgaming (talk) 10:00, 21 April 2024 (UTC)
Perhaps I could go to Ashe for help? Scorchshotgaming (talk) 10:02, 21 April 2024 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────It's worth a try.

I think it might be a problem with one of the props inside tr_karma_wiki. Can I try the legacy tr_target version? Scorchshotgaming (talk) 11:19, 21 April 2024 (UTC)
Make sure to use the one provided in the weaponref.

Wait, actually, the game doesn't freeze; the map loads, except it just stays on a static frame the entire time. I'll try and bind a key to "hud_reloadscheme", then reload the HUD after I think the game has loaded. Scorchshotgaming (talk) 11:34, 21 April 2024 (UTC)
The game is frozen on a static frame, what do I do? Scorchshotgaming (talk) 11:40, 21 April 2024 (UTC)
Seems like it is probably caused by the 64-bit update. You can either try adding -nosound to your launch options (I've seen some people say this works) or simply wait until there is an update to fix it.

I've tried -nosound, to no avail. I suppose the demo is on hold until later. Scorchshotgaming (talk) 11:52, 21 April 2024 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Tried 32-bit and everything, nothing's working. Can I cancel this reservation? Scorchshotgaming (talk) 13:04, 21 April 2024 (UTC)

Sure, just remove it from the page.

Hang on, I might try again. As long as you approve I can try tr_target_weapondemo_hdr (if that was what it was called) instead of tr_karma. It might look out of place, but as long as it works right is it acceptable for now? Scorchshotgaming (talk) 16:06, 23 April 2024 (UTC)
Yeah should be fine. Check if yesterday's patch fixed the regular map, though.

OK. Should be done within a week. I'll re-reserve on the talk page. Scorchshotgaming (talk) 16:09, 23 April 2024 (UTC)
Looks like tr_karma is still suffering the freezing issue, even with -nosound. However, the download link for tr_target_weaponref_hdr doesn't seem to be working. Any ideas? Scorchshotgaming (talk) 18:59, 23 April 2024 (UTC)
I've tried the tr_karma_rc1 version on Workshop, which began loading but made no progress on "Upgrading steam resources” (I think it was called that). After it took forever and made no progress, I closed the game then restarted it, again for it to make no progress. Also, like I said, the tr_target_weaponref_hdr download link on the talk page doesn't work. A little help? Scorchshotgaming (talk) 19:26, 23 April 2024 (UTC)
