Trying to update an image..Edit

I was trying to update the image for the Browning High Power with a render that I made of the actual model, but it keeps breaking the page layout whenever I do.

I have reverted back to the previous file for the time being.

Have you uploaded the actual image file? Also please sign your posts, makes it easier for me to identify who's posting. SHIELD unit 22:05, May 24, 2010 (UTC)


I apologize, I'm kinda new to wiki-ing.

I did upload, and when I did I chose to overwrite the old image, and even though it had asked me what size it would like to limit it to in an article, it seemed to completely ignore that and display the full size one. Nige111 06:50, May 25, 2010 (UTC)

Ok I've gotten around that, your image has been re-uploaded SHIELD unit 07:05, May 25, 2010 (UTC)


Thanks for fixing the image. :) Nige111 16:04, May 27, 2010 (UTC)

Regarding 'real-world' weapon picturesEdit

Hi! In my opinion there is no need for uploading pictures of 'real-world' guns. In-game screenshots of weapons should suffice. And by the way, don't forget to tag every uploaded screenshot taken from game with correct license template: in this case it should be {{fairuse}}. It saves a lot of work. Octurion 08:04, January 2, 2010 (UTC)

Pointing out: Edit

I came up with a theory for Clear Sky's fate after CS. I know it's particularly not something to put in the Wiki but here's the possibility: Clear Sky faction is much similar to the Marked Ones sent out by the Monolith faction and C-C. After have failing their job of killing Strelok, Monolith soldiers or other factions start to turn heavily aggressive to Clear Sky, ripping it to shreds and having Lebedev dissappear (noting the similarities of voice and form of the C-C hologram, It must be Lebedev.) The only survivors either assimilate into other factions, or escaped the Zone.

User:LonerDeacon - I do think that's the most likely fate of Clear Sky - without Scar's combat ability and Lebedev's leadership, I imagine they were forced to pull out due to encroaching Renegades and Bandits.

The fact Nimble's aware of a UN Observer force operating in the zone (and procures weaponry from the observers, like the FN2000 in Call of Pripyat) - and the suggestion from NPCs in Clear Sky that the faction had outside support may mean that the UN tried an aggressive approach (suppported by CS's relatively peaceful mandate and emphasis on blue uniforms, as well as multi-national weapons), and after the epic failure are sitting on the sidelines as observers. It's entirely possible chaps like Cold, Beanpoleov, and others who did not follow the mobilised forces into Limansk may be alive on the fringe of the Zone, if they weren't slain by vengeful Duty/Freedom/Bandits en route.

User:Tidus93 - Yes. However, I think Clear Sky was an indirect helper of C-Consiousness.Mayhap part of it, without knowing.


Hey gaisEdit

Is it me or is it that some of the recently uploaded images are somehow disappearing....by that I mean the file name exists but there is no image. SHIELD unit 05:25, January 13, 2010 (UTC)

Some servers were probably down. Octurion 14:47, January 26, 2010 (UTC)

UploadsEdit

Few general tips how to improve the quality of your uploads:

  • Capturing images:
    • Turn off rs_stats (rs_stats off or rs_stats 0) feature in your console. That should remove that awful (and definitively not needed) info about your in-game coordinates.
    • Disable "Crosshair target distance" feature. (Main Menu -> Options -> Game)
    • Disable NPC Name Identification (Main Menu -> Options -> Game)
  • Uploading:
    • Do not upload pictures depicting modded content. (Like this)
    • Crop your pictures.
    • Choose appropriate name: Descriptive, not too long or too short, unique.
    • Tag every uploaded screen with correct licence template. {{Fairuse}} should be sufficient for screenshots taken from games.
    • Provide categories.
    • Provide source. From where was the picture taken (game/website/etc...)

Here is the formatting:

== Summary ==
Short description. ([[Source game]])
== Licensing: ==
{{LicTemplate))

[[Category:Category #1]]

I think it is high time to discuss some rules and policies.


If you need some help, ask. Octurion 14:47, January 26, 2010 (UTC)

Why change the Yanov entry? Edit

You don't have to give the Fine Tools to Nitro specifically, so why mention him in the entry?

AnomalousStalker 12:48, February 14, 2010 (UTC)

Thx for the pic edit on the Colonel Petrenko page.

Userboxes Edit

Hi. I've imported Userbar template from the en.wiki. You can find the template here - [1] Octurion 11:00, May 7, 2010 (UTC)

I see, thanks SHIELD unit 12:56, May 7, 2010 (UTC)

Stop removing useful edits please Edit

I am very displeased to find that two of my edits have been undone with no real reason behind removing them. Both of these edits were totally relevant to the topic and served to provide accurate information on the topics. The pages were the MP5 and Browning Hi-Power. If the edits provide useful information and serve to make the articles more satisfying and interesting to read. Most articles on this wikia are stubs, and reverting them back to stubs after a user adds relevant and useful information, as well as beefing up the article, is neither nice or productive. At least provide a reason. Gesz 23:52, May 21, 2010 (UTC)

We only need a short summary for weapons since this isn't a full-time gunpedia. We don't need that much fluff in weapons.

SHIELD unit 00:11, May 22, 2010 (UTC)

While I do agree with you Shield, I think you should have just trimmed Gesz's edits down a bit and offered your objection to their length in the edit summary, rather than revert them without a word as if they were vandalism. --MattyDienhoff «talk» 11:47, May 25, 2010 (UTC)

Wiki color scheme Edit

Hey man, congrats on the promotion to bureaucrat! I've been meaning to discuss with you the wiki's current color scheme. While I do like the fact that it's distinctive, I find light colored text on a dark background to be very harsh on the eyes (especially during prolonged editing) and I'm sure I'm not alone in this. I think a new color scheme is in order. Are you open to the idea? --MattyDienhoff «talk» 11:47, May 25, 2010 (UTC)

Well thanks and about the color scheme, I haven't really thought about it much as I'm contented with it but we're open for suggestions. Though I'm still mastering how to use monaco and HTML so I'm not the one for the job just yet. Ask Octurion, he knows more than me about these things. SHIELD unit 12:33, May 25, 2010 (UTC)

I'll start the work on the new skin soon. Octurion 10:39, May 26, 2010 (UTC)

Is it possible to upload pictures without putting them in a page?Edit

Hello people, i just want to ask if its possible to upload a large amount of weapon pictures without putting them in a page? I currently have very little time to upload and place every picture one by one on the exact page, but i do have all of the weapons pictures.

Yes, you can. Just upload the images and leave it at that, I'm sure we'll find uses for them. --MattyDienhoff «talk» 02:35, May 26, 2010 (UTC)
Thats the problem, how do i do it?
Click on the "Upload a new image" link in the menu on the left. --MattyDienhoff «talk» 08:10, May 26, 2010 (UTC)

RE: image reverting Edit

Oh, so thats what you want... At least because the ingame images are lower-quality and turned... For example, SVD. Also, the only way to take a picture of some gun without any upgrades is to make in-game snapshot. If you open a model, it will be "fully-upgraded" gun. The Call of Pripyat repair icons are lower-quality and with not all addons removed. I just want to make the encyclopedia better and original... Besides, Boredgunner thanked me for the images and said that they are "exactly what we need" when i started uploading them.

User:lafoxxx 13:57, May 28 2010 (UTC)

While we do appreciate your images, it's kinda better to show the actual thing as seen in the game rather than a real-world picture of the gun. But if we don't have the in-game model, the real world shot is still preferable. SHIELD unit 14:58, May 28, 2010 (UTC)

Greetings Edit

hey bro, thx for the welcome message,
i did have 1 particular question for you while i made my post about vorpals stash yesterday , i was planning on adding a picture by picture walkthrough to make it easier for people but for some reason when i uploaded the image i had trouble adding it to the page
i chose one of the layouts , uploaded the pic, but when i added it to the page all i saw was 2 horizontal lines ( maybe this is where the image shouldve been loaded/pasted to ) and no picture ( which was about 140kbs) , it was small so i know the problem didnt come from incorrect size/res or delay from uploading.
if possible, please let me know if this has been a common error/problem with other people and i can try to solve it myself without inconveniencing you further.

24.80.161.244 06:51, June 2, 2010 (UTC)Vexillum


Hello Greetings too!

Please do me a favor and reformat my edits. I really do not know how to format them properly. Thanks. 01:24, December 13, 2011 (UTC)

Martha Edit

hi just wanting to know if there is a missing iron sight on the Martha in SoC

thanks

From the few times I used the Martha in SoC, it has a pair of Iron sights. SHIELD unit 02:29, June 8, 2010 (UTC)

Confirmed, try a reload or a save from before you use it , that should fix it. patched to 1.0005 ? or 06 ?

Thank you! Edit

Thanks for the welcome! I hope i won't get into trouble and exceed the community's expectations :) Chikubi 04:05, June 6, 2010 (UTC)

Well it's an automated response but sure, welcome aboard. SHIELD unit 04:22, June 6, 2010 (UTC)

hi ,

a quick Q, i had the idea of leaving pic's that contain mission info on some pages , would it be okay to post those screenshots ? and if yes then where ? i have a few hundred screenshots with usefull info that would be a nice add for the site.


have a nice day , Dabur 23:43, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

Sure, just put them up properly on said pages. SHIELD unit 02:31, June 8, 2010 (UTC)

okay with that said, how about a tab on the top right just for pics ? is it possible ?


Yeah just list "|right" on the image tab. SHIELD unit 02:57, June 8, 2010 (UTC)

http://stalker.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Animals top right you have two tabs ' category ' and ' discussion ' how about a third one thats for pics ? Dabur 03:15, June 8, 2010 (UTC)


oh yes the white and blue works fine , only on some of the weapons info cards on the right side of the screen the darkblue letters are hard to be seen on the blue background.
I'll keep that in mind SHIELD unit 02:57, June 8, 2010 (UTC)

for the rest the white and blue works fine one several screens, wide or not , high def or not, nice contrast but not painfull ( cause its blue ) for the eyes, nice idea ! Dabur 03:15, June 8, 2010 (UTC)

animal section Edit

the animal section only has the crow in it

http://stalker.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Animals what do you think of expanding it ?

have a nice day

Can't really expand it since the Crow is the only animal in the zone who isn't mutated. SHIELD unit 02:24, June 8, 2010 (UTC)

it just struck me after i saw it again, mistook it for ' mutants ' , @@@##


Making of STALKER Clear SkyEdit

Hello SHIELD UNIT, I wanted to ask you if we can use information from these videos about how the developers created Clear Sky

Yeah I'll get on that. SHIELD unit 10:02, June 10, 2010 (UTC)

SEREG Edit

Hi SHIELD UNIT please remove this article and maybe also ban IP that maded that article,there is nothing written in that artictle.

I've banned him for the appropriate offenses but I'm not going to edit-protect the entire wiki. I don't want to hassle any anon contributors with good intentions. SHIELD unit 09:12, June 20, 2010 (UTC)

Indeed others would pay for the actions of one, ...

I was thinking, is it easy to undo what such people do ? is there a back up ? Thanks for fixing it ! Dabur 09:47, June 20, 2010 (UTC)


Be it media wiki or wikia, all changes are cached and can be reverted anytime in the history section of the page so vandalism is really pointless here. SHIELD unit 10:04, June 20, 2010 (UTC)

PS , i dont care for the flaming, but the work of several people that gets deleted and replaced with the word - p..p - i take offense to that !


Yeah, vandals with enough sense of humor to make me laugh are in short supply these days. SHIELD unit 10:04, June 20, 2010 (UTC)

I can imagine that, .... if you do a search on the IP it seems it has been banned a few times on the internet , ....

Questions... Edit

Heya, could i get clarification on the points raised at Talk:Artifacts and Talk:List of artifacts ?


Much obliged Chikubi 06:47, June 25, 2010 (UTC)


You want to revise the artifact list by re-ordering them by effectiveness? SHIELD unit 09:57, June 25, 2010 (UTC)


Yup, but only for the 'by side effect' section, while keeping the 'by game' section alphabetical.

Also, some artifacts exist in all three games, but the order in which the games are listed varies from artie to artie. Could the community come to a concensus whether they want them listed by chronological (i.e. CS, SoC, CoP) or date of release (i.e. SoC, CS, CoP?)?

I personally favour the date of release list, since that way the evolution of stats is clearly visible from game to game. A great example is the Kolobok (Artifact) whos stats were changed from SoC to CS and continued into CoP. Chikubi 15:49, June 25, 2010 (UTC)


Yeah, your suggestions are real nice ones. The chronological order is probably better. SHIELD unit 00:05, June 26, 2010 (UTC)

other animals Edit

hi ,

one can hear an owl and crickets , should they be included as animals ?

have a nice day !


On one hand we can hear them but on the other we can't actually see them........I'll ponder on this. SHIELD unit 23:47, June 26, 2010 (UTC)


hmmm , well the lab rat is included , so why not ? its part of the game so it should be included if you want a complete breakown af all the things of the game , ....

include a soundfile ??

You do have a point there. Yeah it should be done. SHIELD unit 23:57, June 26, 2010 (UTC)

ok . i have some other thoughts as well , do you check your email ?

Not very often but yeah
SHIELD unit 03:23, June 27, 2010 (UTC)


btw , since more and more sites are going down that have info lets all work together and make the wiki stalker THE place to be for info , ...


That's what we're trying to aim for SHIELD unit 03:23, June 27, 2010 (UTC)


and there is some not so good feeback on the gsc site for the wiki , many people simply still dont know this site , get it know , .....

Kinda strange since there's virtually a wikia for every almost video game and TV show on this planet. About publicity, I'll figure out something. SHIELD unit 03:23, June 27, 2010 (UTC)

ever since i put the link at the bottom of game related emails and in live messenger talks more and more get to know it in the las few months from people that i know , now if people play stalker for 2 or more years and they have not heard or visited the site i ask why , most say simply that they dont know about it ,..... there are plenty of good russian sites , but on english there is nothing left , since this site is more then above average why not make it top level ? even posters with 2500 posts on the gsc forums dont know it , ..... ( ! )

since i speak several languages , how about a french version ? just a thought , french , german , spanish would be the main languages , in spain stalker was released very late , only know players get to know the game there , .... and we are mid 2010 !!

oh yes , the rats , check out this thread , it was included in very early builds , but thats it

problems ? Edit

hi ,

i noticed this weekend no mails are sent , problems ? yep followed pages that had changes and logged out at that time also , ....

loading is strange also , when in the middle of the night , 2-5 am local in europe no one else should be online or just a few and the pages sometimes takes minutes to load , ....

vdsl con and its great , since the site worked fine this week, what gives ?

You cannot edit the contents of categories directly. You have to add/remove your the page by configuring the category. SHIELD unit 00:47, July 5, 2010 (UTC)

Wiki layout Edit

Is the new layout your doing? I dig the theme, but there's a GIGANTIC problem, namely the fixed width format. Right now I have this huge blank space (okay, an image from Build 1935, but still) on either side of my screen and a really, really tiny space in which to read articles. It's pretty maddening. Think you could do something about it? -- Yukichigai 01:03, July 4, 2010 (UTC)

ps gone all day talk to you tonight

Weapon names Edit

Heya, I read the discussion on the main page about this, but there seems to be no conclusion there. Why on earth was the M203 given the wrong image and name?

GSC never did make an official documentation on how they modeled the in-game gear so I'm gonna guess an oversight on their part.

SHIELD unit 04:58, July 7, 2010 (UTC)


I thought this was a video game page, not a 'gunpedia' as you said, why don't we give artifacts names that we think are correct as well? "Manufactured by Schweizerische Industrie-Gesellschaft, the Gewehraufsatz 97 (incorrectly named in-game as an M203 grenade launcher)"

Then I realized that it would be hypocritical of me since I'm responsible for much of the weapon related fluff here. What I'm implying is that weapon descriptions shouldn't be too fluffy. A proper way would be to include only a short bio of the gun, a small part of it's history and throw in a bit of trivia that pertains to it's unique features. Like the AN-94 article, that's a good example. A gunpedia style description would contain too much unnecessary information pertaining to the gun and not really that relevant to the game like it's complete history, a textbook description about it's real life stats and kinda like what you'd find in a real firearm article.

SHIELD unit 06:42, July 7, 2010 (UTC)

I saw you cleared out Gesz's contribution to the wiki entirely due to it being fluff, does this not count as fluff as well?

I didn't clear it out, I re-did it by removing some of the excess fluff....well at first IO cleared it out then I re-did it after thinking what to do after the complaint.

SHIELD unit 04:58, July 7, 2010 (UTC)


Kolobok would be the first to be turned into 'anomalous object named after a fairy tale character who was spherical and made of dough' Is there any way of getting a vote going or something?

Adding some trivia on artifacts is good or anything for that matter is good just as long as it's true.

SHIELD unit 06:34, July 7, 2010 (UTC)

Its a little presumptuous to think that the developers wanted to name their nato grenade launchers Gewehraufsatz 97 instead of m203 but due to a slip of the hand ended up with m203.

That or GSC is a little off with how they replicate ther guns that they unknowingly cross-over features. Look at the SiG SG-550 for example, it has a 30 round mag in-game but it's model is only for a 20 round mag.

SHIELD unit 04:58, July 7, 2010 (UTC)

Chikubi 00:20, July 7, 2010 (UTC)

In that case should we go through all pages such as TRs 301 and replace every M203 Grenade Launcher link with SIG Gewehraufsatz 97 grenade launcher for consistency?

Chikubi

hi , if you ask 30 people if they have heard about the SIG Gewehraufsatz 97 grenade launcher none will answer they know it , .... but most will know the M203 , ....

just two cents Dabur 16:49, July 7, 2010 (UTC) have a nice one


Any luck on letting us know whether we should change the links for consistency?

Chikubi 02:16, July 10, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, change them for the sake of consistency. Just label them as Gewehraufsatz 97. SHIELD unit 02:23, July 10, 2010 (UTC)


And there I was, hoping that this final act of deviating from canon names would bring you back into game oriented mentality since the current name is so far from the intended one.
I still feel that the page names should be canon as well as all links within articles, except for a short reference to its inspiration at the start of each article. Is it possible to set up a poll on this issue?
I do see your point. In the scripts the 'nade launcher is designated as wpn_addon_grenade_launcher_m203 but took the change without thinking. Someone does need to point out why it's a 97 than an M203 but it's probably going to be listed on trivia.

SHIELD unit 03:55, July 10, 2010 (UTC)

Also, should this conversation be moved to somewhere more visible so that users who don't visit your userpage can also participate?

Well....yeah

SHIELD unit 03:55, July 10, 2010 (UTC)

Since this wiki rejects information on game modification...

We do accept some game mod info. However to avoid contributors getting the idea that this place is a way to advertise mods: it's mostly confined to cut-content information or when the situation call for it.

SHIELD unit 03:55, July 10, 2010 (UTC)


...doesnt even accept images from modified games, why does it contain modified names for each gun? Chikubi 02:47, July 10, 2010 (UTC)

Images from modified games are acceptable on a certain level (which needs to be written on a rule page of sorts). While modded images are discouraged, it is acceptable just as long as they don't heavily deviate from the original one like Different armor skins(Yes I'm responsible for Ara but I'm trying to find a replacement and I lost my copy of SoC.), weapons than don't remotely resemble the original one and more along those lines. Take Cpt. Petrenko for example, now he's using a modded Abakan and accessories(Guessing Rebirth Abakan and Attachments retextured respectively.) but it still does look the the vanilla Abakan(just having better detail) and our focus is on the character than the weapon. And yes I do sometimes upload images with modded weapons but as much as possible I try to shadow them out if they deviate significantly from the original one.

Remove all his missions from his page and put it right here with each mission in it's own article: List of optional missions in Shadow of Chernobyl. Copypasta should suffice for now.
SHIELD unit 15:46, July 7, 2010 (UTC)

hi , okay ill do that on friday or thursday night , i found a few new missions from him also in a new game like cover the duty squad , etc , .... i will make sure the links work also

According to one of the staff members: this is a technical issue on wikia's side.

grenade launcher , to many pages Edit

hi ,

now we got not one but three grenade launcher pages , ....

  • sigh *

this is just creating confusion , ....

Yeah, I'll work that out later.
SHIELD unit 02:05, July 15, 2010 (UTC)

Latest issues Edit

Hey SHIELD, two issues arose lately. One is the grenade launcher naming issue, one I hope I clarified on the talk page for the item: the texture name, world model and attachment system of the grenade launcher in SHOC, CS and COP are identical with the SIG Gewehraufsatz 97, and have little in common with the Colt Defense M203.

Well, you have proven everything about it not being an M203 launcher. So it goes, but it is still called an M203 when calling it by it's in-game name.


SHIELD unit 06:36, July 19, 2010 (UTC)

Second is a little more complex: Dabur has been spamming links to the Zone Survival Guide in every item article on the wiki. I've been consistently removing those that add nothing of value to the articles, leaving those that do (locations) intact. I've tried explaining the decision to Dabur, but he refuses to understand my point. In order to prevent edit warring, I was forced to block Dabur for 24h, until we can reach a concrete decision as to whether or not link spamming the ZSG is permitted.

I understand the decision. Hopefully he'll understand the action and realize why he was blocked. Also we have a Ban template.


SHIELD unit 06:36, July 19, 2010 (UTC)

I have nothing against ZSG, it's a great resource for the wiki and STALKER players, but I don't think it's necessary to link to it from every single page of the wiki, especially since we don't get any real benefit from it, as the Guide is not in any way affiliated with us (though it should be, in my opinion).

True, it is becoming more like advertisement than informing. And a joint-op is interesting.


SHIELD unit 06:36, July 19, 2010 (UTC)

Bottom line, we need a concrete policy on external links. Mine is "only link, if the target website expands the article, not repeats information already included".

Yeah we do, along with an entire rulebook that needs doing. I should probably get on that.


SHIELD unit 06:36, July 19, 2010 (UTC)

I am aware a temp-block might be too harsh of a measure, but I think it was the best possible course of action, given the circumstances.

Well, once in a while we do have to use our weapons to enforce order.

7-19-10

You mind being a little more specific?
SHIELD unit 00:29, July 20, 2010 (UTC)

this is as specific as I can get,( Normally, access to the area is initially prohibited until the player completes Sidorovich's mission to retrieve the case from the Argoprom facility, but the requirement can be circumvented by exploiting a glitch. This can be achieved by simply pushing against the gate or shooting it open. Doing this, however, will cause the soldiers guarding the gate to become hostile, and shooting them will invoke the wrath of the Duty members within. The guards may be avoided, permitting access without having to make the trek to Agropom for the case.) he replaced my writing with this sh!t, on the rostok page

Odd, your edit isn't logged on Rostok's revision history or your contributions. In fact your last article edit was for the Chaser 13

Grenades article Edit

Hey Shield, just wondering what you think should be done about the issue raised by Hyperion on Talk:Grenades.
Chikubi 09:42, July 24, 2010 (UTC)


"Grenade" is too much of a generic term since it can also include shells or other types of ammunition. I think it should be renamed as Hand Grenades.
SHIELD unit 09:51, July 24, 2010 (UTC)

PseudodogEdit

This is the 'happy-ending' image for Noah.
The image is actually of two puppies and their mother Lassie on the right.

SHIELD unit 07:04, July 27, 2010 (UTC)

stadium Edit

hey man, this wiki says you can't explore the stadium in pripyat, but on my first time there I got in with no problem.

when you get to the entrence to the stadium, turn left and go up the steps. keep going left and you should be at the last gate into the stadium. It is closed but you can just slip between the bars that are farthest apart and you are in the stadium. there is so much cool stuff in the stadium that you could make a new page about it. there three monolith guys with rocket launchers, about 30 rodents, a pseudogiant, 5 snorks, and there is a Sh!tload of artifacts, and when you want out, you just slip back between the bars. oh and there

are so many springboards and vortex that if you do not have a lot of medics, you will probably die. the roads and the space by the downed helicopter are the only safe spots. but overall, its worth it. loyal-to-duty 7-25-10

Yes you can enter the stadium, just not through the main entrance. The edges of the stadium as well as the seats are perfectly safe, at least from anomalies. In the stadium you have the three Monolithians with rocket launchers as previously stated, a Preacher also watches the stadium and when you get near the exit, two Pseudogiants come out. There are plenty of Tushkano and artifacts, most notably Night Stars. Boredgunner 22:15, July 25, 2010 (UTC)

just saying , this wiki did not make that subject too clear, loyal-to-duty 7-25-10

"Got a job for you Marked One..." Edit

IRC and IGN names Edit

Thanks for logging in to see that it actually functions Shield, unfortunately i wasn't looking at my screen at the time that you joined i wasnt able to react. However, if you register a nickname with the freenode server, then i can give you operator capabilities. I was getting advice online from Tigernose and she/he was giving brilliant ideas on how to implement the IRC channels, specifically for debates and discussions. Check out their IRC wikia page to see how it would work. Granted, we have a smaller community than them, but give it time (and stalker 2)! P.S. you can get some genuinely good advice on there:


[[2010:08:19:20:53:24] <Tigernose> The wiki should be documenting things from an in-game perspective, as it is not Wikipedia. Therefore, you should always put the game first in article titles and bolded names in the article to keep as professional and accurate as possible


[[2010:08:19:20:54:24] <Tigernose> Often times, wikis that don't go the professional way are looked down towards and then this branch off into unofficial rules of editing that just catch on, which may potentially damage the article's accuracy


[[2010:08:19:20:54:31] <Tigernose> I've seen it happen before


[[2010:08:19:20:55:07] <Tigernose> So you want to keep as true to the game as possible, yet consider practically via redirects for example

So basically, enough of the ridiculous name changes... e.g. Sphere-08 tactical helmet

Location layout is insufficient. I've already started to work on better one. Weapon: GP-37, Obokan article lacks appropriate subsections (Upgrades, Acquisition/Availability, Notable users, etc.); Character: Voronin; Missions: Deal with the snitch or Bring over the tail of the pseudodog; Armor layout is quite O.K.

Rebind your quick access key in the game(F1,F2,F3,F4) and go to your Call of Pripyat user folder and find the user.LTX file located in either your user folder or public folder and paste this:
bind cam_1 kF1
bind cam_2 kF2
bind cam_3 kF3
bind cam_zoom_in kADD

No problem, it just drove me nuts that a wikia page of such an outstanding game series is in pretty disordered and lacking shape. Many info were, and even more still are, a little hard to find, some are uncategorized and many many other 'bugs' and whatnot occur. I am doing whatever I can, meaning literally editing everything that I find and needs editing - from simple text content to editing templates, renaming pages, making pages or riping images from game texture files to put them here ]:->. Hehe till now it was the biggest challenge for me to edit artifacts template and it took me hell lot of work as i am not that good in programming, besides i dont know the syntax - but it was worth it imho. Ofc i dont plan on stopping my work here and even now i got a pile of things i want to do. Also I am practicing my skills with editing as i still dont know many tricks ;P. While at this point i'd like to ask for your help with couple of thing i couldn't do myself:

Well either way, many thanks for what you've done here. SHIELD unit 11:39, October 28, 2011 (UTC)
  • i wanted to rename page: from TRs-301 to TRs 301, however the latter is a redir to the first i couldn't. I know, a small change but its consistent with CoP weapon names.
Wait, I'll try to get that. SHIELD unit 11:39, October 28, 2011 (UTC)

=== somthing === marker? imho the triple = also needs to be bold as those tiles are hard to see, uncomfortable to read but quite important. if bold it would make quite smooth transition:

    • 1st == bold and long underline
    • 2nd === bold
    • 3rd and so on ==== clean
I think that's built-into wikia's software, I don't know how to edit that one. SHIELD unit 11:39, October 28, 2011 (UTC)
  • i noticed that there are two separate pages concerning Rookie Camp or village, i am not sure if this location was named differently in SoC and CS. I need an advice should i 'merge' contents of those pages, making one with contents of both and the other a redir? if so which should be which?
In my experience, Rookie village wasn't really the official name, in CS it was called the "Village center". But unless it's called the rookie village there in-game somewhere, go with village, it isn't really much of a camp anyway. SHIELD unit 11:39, October 28, 2011 (UTC)

Requests part 2Edit

Since i am somewhat limited as i mentioned before id like to ask of you the following:

  • rename X-18 laboratory to Lab X-18, i cant do it since the latter is a redir and i would like to refrain from cutting and pasting the content.
Though Ctrl+C - Ctrl+V, isn't such a bad move, done with rename. SHIELD unit 13:18, November 1, 2011 (UTC)
Done. SHIELD unit 13:18, November 1, 2011 (UTC)

my overall reason is to be as consistent with game terminology as possible or be consistent with all the other similar pages like Lab X-something. Ofc the best situation is to be both at the same time. Most probably ill be back to ask for more similar things in future :P thx in adv

No problem brah, I'll get on it whenever I can. SHIELD unit 13:18, November 1, 2011 (UTC)

SHIELD unit 05:45, November 5, 2011 (UTC)

Another 2 picsEdit

I got another 2 pics i replaced. Just like the above, ofc i always replace them on pages and such. Same story. Pics: 25px and 25px.

As a side note, just as an example of what i tend to do: File:Flash Drive.jpg vs mine Cs icon flash drive blue i guess no harm done :P i got a quicky, next time (i assume there will be more 'next times' can i just list the pics? will you know that already did what i always do? or should i rather use only {{delete}} label not to bother you? Tyrael pl 23:37, November 6, 2011 (UTC)

Well actually, by naming the new image you're about to upload with the same name as that already present, the new image will overwrite the old image after a prompt. Also, I'm not really bothered by this so you can still post these things here or just put delete tags on them, it's all good.
SHIELD unit 01:05, November 7, 2011 (UTC)

In that case ill post em here if its not a bother. from my experience they will overwrite one another if the name matches but also an extension... those were jpg or gif and i upload mainly png as they support full color and transparency also they have no compression artifacts. i also found a clever utility to cut from em all the useless data etc (optimize em by size with no quality loss) which is why my 53x53px png was smaller 9 times if compared to 42x43px jpg :P i simply am in love with png format - imho it is like the ultimate image format, flawless. Tyrael pl 01:48, November 7, 2011 (UTC)

Got some other problemEdit

recently i wanted to create a "simple" template that will do this: i type {{<templ name>|loners|fac 1|fac 2|etc}} and it gives me SCS Loners Loners <break line here> [[Image:next faction image]] [[fac 1]]. ofc all those factions show up only if used in syntax. if i type faction 1 if gives only this image+faction, if i type multiple faction it gives me those images+factions. seems simple but i fail somehow. are able to help me? it would be useful to fill factions with small insignia more efficiently in locations infoboxes. Tyrael pl 01:48, November 7, 2011 (UTC)


Sorry about not being able to respond quickly, real life is screwing me hard. I'm terribly sorry that I can't help you, but I don't know how to do a statement like that, that would work here.

Nighttime mod Edit

Hey man you mentioned a mod In SOC that makes night dark like in clear sky do you know where i could find it, thanks.WolfHound 20:41, November 18, 2011 (UTC)

Well, mine was sort of part of the package that came in when I installed Oblivion Lost, but nearly all big-time SoC mods (LURK and Complete for example) will contain at least 1 weather mod. Some one recommended this to me once because it was compatible with OL and a vanilla game, though I never got to test it yet.

SHIELD unit 10:14, November 19, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks now i just need to figure out how to mod lol WolfHound 21:10, November 19, 2011 (UTC)

Usually, just copy-paste whatever files are in the mod in your STALKER game's directory (By default, installed in Program Files) in the "gamedata" folder. It's not there by default so either create it yourself but if the mod is already contained in a gamedata folder after you DL it, just copy-paste it into your directory.

Locking a user?Edit

Seen that on Guid talk, wondering how does that even worke? and what it is locking the page if that prevents from scum to vandalise the profile page then count me in i want to lock my page. But first describe what locking is? Danke)

Scare Cr0w 15:11, January 22, 2012 (UTC)Scare Cr0w

If you're talking about The Real Guide's talk page about user-page locking, then let me explain:

"Locking" or "protecting" your userpage means only a specific group of people can edit it, not a specific person. Regular users cannot protect pages, only admins can.

The most basic level of protection for regular users like you is barring unregistered/new users from editing it, only registered/experienced members can edit them. The other one is only admins can edit it, which I don't advise since even you won't be able to edit your page and some of us might not have the time/patience to customize it to your preference and/or toggling the settings whenever you feel like editing your page.

But again, I must tell you that the vandalism rate here is extremely low, there isn't really much of a need to protect your page in the first place since even if you did encounter a vandal, you could always just undo his changes from your history option, and since there hasn't been any /b/rigade-sized vandal raids around here, you won't have much problems.

Just leave your choice of yes or no here and I'll get back to you tomorrow, I'm sorta sick and have to turn in now.


SHIELD unit 15:54, January 22, 2012 (UTC)

Wokey, no need to lock my page then, but the thing that is interesting. HOW can i undo the vanadlism on any page. for example a vandal taffer comes and vandalises the page by trolling, how can i undo his changes?.

Scare Cr0w 16:00, January 22, 2012 (UTC)Scare Cr0w

Go the blue box with the word "Edit"/"Edit Profile" on it that's located at about the upper-right corner of your page then click the downward arrow to it's right. After that click "history" and undo his changes by clicking "undo". If he won't give up, just let him be and wait any Admin to come online to ban him. I for one usually log-on everyday here, either to add more content or just to check up on things here, so a response will usually be quick.

LinkingEdit

Hey thanks for the greeting, I was wondering how do you make a link in a character infobox template. I just can't figure it out, thanks. Also how do you add a pic to a character infobox Fang86 05:54, February 15, 2012 (UTC)

  • For links, it's the same everywhere: [[-Link's name here-]]
  • For pics in infoboxes, make sure it doesn't have the tags "File:" or "Image:", just post it like this: 480px-Freedom_Exoskeleton.jpg and not like this: File:480px-Freedom_Exoskeleton.jpg. Also place the image's link in the right part of the infobox's template in the code, usually it's always in "|image=".

CoP Yanov page questionEdit

I was editing locations and came to notice that the page Yanov that is actuelly supposed to be calld Jupiter since its a central name for the location, why is it called Yanov, its a train station one building aint it? So my question is what is decided to leave the name of one building that represents the whole location? or shall we change the name of the location to its original >> Jupiter. Could be Yanov aswell nothing fency about it since most of people gather there as a center but still the location is calld Jupiter and yanov is only one part of it.

Scare Cr0w 13:59, April 8, 2012 (UTC)Scare Cr0w

If my shoddy memory is correct, I could have sworn that Yanov/Jupiter is caled "The area around Jupiter" in the save screen. So I guess we should rename it Jupiter.

Question Edit

Sorry for the first accidental post. I was wondering if you had the time to answer a few questions of mine. First off, I would like to know how to add a column that shows an image, faction affiliation, weapons, rank in the zone, etc. like you have in your profile. I'm new to wikia sites, as well as the wikia editor, so sorry if I'm asking very noobish questions. Please respond. Dirty Chicken Meat DCM (talk) 18:24, July 21, 2012 (UTC)DCM

Ohh you mean the infobox? It'd be simpler if you just copied the template on my user page and used it in your's. I'll post an infobox template on your page so it'll be easier to explain.

    • So basically, here's how to edit it:
  • name and image is sort of explanatory. To add an image, just add the filename without the "File:" or "Image:" tag and also without the dual brackets "[[]]", just the file name like how I did it.
  • Each section is divided per game denoted by a small tag to indicate it (soc, cs, cop) that's also the game's acronym.
  • the "aff" tag is affiliation, which is what faction you prefer to be on.
  • the "rank" tag is your rank. Sort of died in Call of Pripyat but we only added it for flavor.
  • the equip tag is equipment, which is your gear. Add each of your equipment with an asterik ("*") and in a vertical fashion. You can also link by using the double brackets on an item in your infobox(i.e: [[Duty]] = Duty, [[TRs-301]] = TRs-301), but if it redlinks that means the page does not exist, so it's either you mispelled the title or we haven't made a page of that nature.

Well, that's pretty much it.

Con Artist Last Stand Dead Zone gameEdit

check this out

http://armorgames.com/the-last-stand-dead-zone-game/13691

This dude made a multyplayer game where u have to controll ur own base from the scratch in the zombie apocolypse, You can choose to eather to attack other players (multyplayer vs real players who own there base) or to be eather neutral or fridnly by helping them. Zombie raids ur base sometimes, and u have to scanvenge and get resourses like food water cloth wood metal to build ur base aswell as many weapons and uppgrades of weapons and gear for your 7-9 men team that join u thru out the game. As long as u provide good stat in ur base the survivors will join you. EVERYONE check this out defently a fun game and its a multyplayer aswell as around the globe.


ALSO there are LOTS AND LOTS of zombies aswell as mutated dogs that attack u durring the scanages in the city such as apartments streats police stations and so on, They raid ur base time to time so u gotta build protection and get weapons. Also remamber that other multyplayers can be assholes and attack or raid ur base. But so far no one attacked on my end, since this game came out 4 weeks ago everyone seem to just want to level up first. Also if u help other compounds they turn friendly.

Apologies Edit

Hey SHIELD. I'd like to apologize in advance for editing your news post. The negative bias towards GSC could have meant that we are condoning copyright infringement :(

Ohh sure. I'm terrible with complete neutrality anyway. SHIELD unit (talk) 04:57, September 4, 2012 (UTC)

And to make things clear: even if you invest money, doing something without the copyright holder's authorization is still a violation. Personal_Sig_Image.gif Tagaziel (call!) 18:08, September 3, 2012 (UTC)

True, guess you can't really bend the statement to make it more acceptable. SHIELD unit (talk) 04:57, September 4, 2012 (UTC)

Board game project AnnouncementEdit

Greatings man, My friends and i decided to worke on this project calld Stalker Clear Sky board game, and we started about 3 weeks ago with tons of ideas and cool stuff that are on there way, right now since we dont have any page to post the latest info we simply post them on modb Tiger Fangs page and Article that is located in Duty Faction group. Our team is good enough for a homepage so one of our team members is even going to make and deticate a homepage for our FREE board game for people to download and play! I strongly advice to check these two links for the info. If you have your own ideas about the game on what youd like to see or even help PLEASE let us know ;)

(Main article Announcement about the board game clear sky on MODB) http://www.moddb.com/groups/duty/news/stalker-the-board-card-game-project

(Tiger Fangs page, our host) http://www.moddb.com/members/tigerfang

So check them out ;) and my question is. HOW and where can i post a page or article here for every user to see that we are making a board game? Been a while since i was here edtiting yet i dont recall EVER posting a topic. So how do i post topic here about the board game? So its in the right place and order. If u want u can post it yourself and let me edit the info and such.

Thanks!

monolithwarrior1996 (talk)


Isn't that just the moss from the walls?
SHIELD unit (talk) 12:42, November 16, 2012 (UTC)

im not actually sure - it looks slimy and splashes when i step in it

monolithwarrior1996 (talk)

Odd, I actually don't recall seeing that in my unmodded SoC playthroughs so I can't give a definite answer. 03:00, November 22, 2012 (UTC)

You might wanna ask the Pseudogiant. He was down there longer before Marked even stept in there... it looks like some rotton mould with some condensation in the sewers.....or some radiation leak nothing interesting.

SeperatorEdit

Hi, and thanks for the welcome. I have just a couple questions, if you can spare the time:

  1. How do I make an infobox like the one on your userpage?
  • {{userbox|-color around the image goes here-|-color around the text goes here-|-[[Image: goes here]]-|-Size of image goes here-]]|-your choice text goes here-}}
  1. Do you know where I can find a mod that will enable me to join the Monolith faction in SoC?
  • Nah, sorry I got nothing. All I got is Oblivion Lost ATM.
  1. Who is Monolithwarrior1996 and what does he do?

(I'm only wondering about that last one because he posted pictures of the slime in the tunnels in Yantar.)

  • Ohh, he's just a contributor here.

Thank you in advance.Loken the daemon (talk) 14:12, November 20, 2012 (UTC)

u'd think my name would be pretty self-explanatory, but SHIELD unit is right i just hang out here, post bad vids and annoy boredgunner with my constant questions

monolithwarrior1996 (talk)

thanks 

Rights?Edit

Sorry to bother you, but a few weeks ago you (I believe) said that the rights to the name "stalker" had been bought by a company. I was wondering why that story was taken down, aswell as who had bought the rights.

Rushed info on my part. Bitcomposer didn't buy out STALKER in the end. Just a hopeful rumor.

And on a side note: Could you possibly take a look at the stalker/sunrise suit, I need tips for making it look better, so anything helps.

I'll do that when I have a bit of free time.

Thanks!

Pop up Google Crome ProblemEdit

Hey everyone, lately iv got this problem that im sure you all had with google crome web. 
Pop up problems

ON EVERY page i go to, this underlined pop up windws come up on each words. HOW can i remove that ? Help fellas!

Scare Cr0w (talk) 23:12, September 30, 2013 (UTC)Scare Cr0w

Well I use firefox most of the time so I dun know much, but it might be because of an unwanted add-on installed on your browser. Try searching you list of add-ons and uninstall anything that you didn't want in the first place.
SHIELD unit (talk) 01:51, October 1, 2013 (UTC)

Hellz yeah buddy iv done something i should have done along time ago. Deleted chrome and installed it again BOOM Ö_Ö! its gone the problem has been eliminated.. instad of fighting it and looking for a problem that has been hiding somewhere on my pc among 10000 files xD kind of like the Zone....just eliminated it and the problem is gone. Reinstalled chrome and everything is now fresh and dandy

Thanks anyways mate!

Modding Articles?Edit

Longtime lurker, occasional editor, finally registered. 

Stalker hasn't had an up to date or accessible modding wiki in quite some time, and I notice the other day you mentioned starting work on a "behind the scenes" article for weapons. I was wondering what your thoughts were on adding some articles on the basics of modding (with permission from their authors), to test the waters. 

The advantage of the Stalker wiki is a) it's not going anywhere, and b), apart from the GSC forums it's the only Stalker site with any semblance of Official-cy (despite not being official)

Cheers, 

Tritici (talk) 20:04, October 20, 2013 (UTC)

Well, considering STALKER's pretty much stagnated until further notice and the developers were pretty open to modding in the first place, I don't think a few articles detailing how to mod different things in the game would hurt.

Though, try to keep all relevant info on each subject into one article. Avoids pages getting cluttered and stuff.

SoC Stash NavboxesEdit

  • Hi man,

I think Octurian and BoredGunner aren't 'here' at the moment but I could be quite wrong about that. Anyway here's the thing that's about to bother me:

  • I've been trying to knock the SoC stash pages info into better shape and the List of stashes in Shadow of Chernobyl is pretty much done alphabetically.
  • The sub-pages have had a work over too, starting with the non-existent ones first, followed by the ambiguous ones ("secret stash" for e.g.) and erroneous links.
  • Now, I've been adding the navboxes to the first few sub-zones and editing the navboxes to list alphabetically too (which is MUCH easier now that I've got a 'main page' to work from...
  • Problem will come after Agroprom when there are no further navboxes available for inclusion.

So, could you arrange for them to "suddenly appear" please, or allow me the necessary permissions on a temporary basis to create them for the wiki? As a basic user I can edit what exists on the page but not create additional sub-pages. I was pretty surprised to find that I could do that much

Byte Me (talk) 16:43, December 23, 2013 (UTC)

Well I'm currently a bit busy trying for well, running around for stuffs in the holidays, plus some other school-related work that I need to finish by next month so it might be a while before I can create all that. Though, I can give you temporary adminship for about two months if that's ok with you (which should give you universal access to all this wiki's features). You seem like a swell guy with the tremendous updates you did with the SoC stash list so I'm confident you won't run amok here or anything.

Respond back if that's all good for you.
SHIELD unit (talk) 13:36, December 24, 2013 (UTC)

I think we're all busy with festive preps atm. What you suggest is probably far more than I need to get this bit done so I accept your gracious offer with thanks in advance. It's been a lot of fun doing grunt work on the SoC stashes, and a nice gentle learning curve (from zero) too. Thankyou for the compliments too, but that's not why I've done any of this - and I know that sooner or later, some twit will come along and delete what I've contribed with a ""duzzent excyst"" - or worse..

What I am somewhat chuffed about are my contribs to the Battery and Spring pages recently, because they can affect gameplay strategy and were quite unexpected, and seemingly undocumented.

Have a good break!! Byte Me (talk) 15:17, December 24, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks and you're an admin now BTW. If you don't do anything to burn the house down, I might aswell let you have it on a permanent basis since we do need more mods on this wiki.
SHIELD unit (talk) 19:23, December 24, 2013 (UTC)

Thank very much - two thoughts came to mind when I read that: 1) "Clean as a whistle" - just before I head for the sniper nest. 2) "Trust me, I know what I'm doing," (Sledge Hammer)

Any shrinks would have a field day with that. The last thing on my mind is screwing things up, so if I need help I'll be asking for it. Byte Me (talk) 19:45, December 24, 2013 (UTC)

LOST ALPHA FINALY HERE!!!Edit

Lost alpha is out already for download, i wonder since its liek a huge part of the daddy stalker genra. Shall we create info here ? LOTS to explore and teach people........game is big as hell. Let me know what you think


Scare Cr0w (talk) 14:21, May 1, 2014 (UTC)Scare Cr0w

Sorry, I've been a bit busy with college so I'm not able to respond rapidly. Unfortunately, this wikia only records canon information, modded info not included (No matter how popular). Though, there a few things people can do to record mod info into this wikia:

1. Use a blog page to display info and categorize them as "Lost Alpha" 2. Use your userpage for Lost Alpha data.

Additionally, as I'm busy, I haven't able to play Lost Alpha myself....or video games for that matter.

SHIELD unit (talk) 13:46, May 3, 2014 (UTC)

Lost alpha is kinda in between. Hell, it has the GSC logo even on the update installer :P ... 

There were talks with GSC to release it as a stand alone game too. 

As for mods in general, wont simple pages that refer to different good mods be good? Like for an example a page with Info about Valley of Whispers (so good and canon friendly it might as well have been DLC, does not change gameplay at all, just a different story) and a walkthrough for it?

-Charcharo


Dezowave team jsut released an official update for lost alpha. now you can save the game.

http://www.moddb.com/mods/lost-alpha/downloads/stalker-lost-alpha-v130013-patch

in case you might want extras take a look at these:

I did not made them they all are done by other authors but I thought you might want to take a look at it

A warming your welcome. Edit

A warming your welcome. Edit

Thank you very much and your welcome for the edits. The unanomous visitor that has been editing some of the mutants origin was I. I hope I can be of help to the comunity as well. I was wondering how can I upload sources so that people can verify the information?

and as well is there a way to add maybe to add a section to send them mod websites?

Cheers(Elitzur874 (talk) 20:33, May 3, 2014 (UTC))

For sources, put this at the end of the sentence you want to source: <ref name="source goes here">Description of source goes here</ref> and put this at this at the bottom of the article:



==References==
<references/>


As for mods, we decided not to add them here because of how many there are over the internet and how that will make everything around here a mess. You have misery, arsenal, sigerious, Lost Alpha, the complete series.....etc. There are simply too many mods for the STALKER series, so we only document official GSC products. People, however, can make their own mod info entries using blogs and categorizing them into one category.

NewEdit

tring to figure out how to use thisTimothyi (talk) 14:50, June 22, 2014 (UTC)

is it working yet?  (timothyi)

all im trying to do is find out how (minor quest) who is hiring the mercenarys    cop   (timothyi)

Your userpage? What exactly is your question? If it's about the mercs, Nobody really knows who hired them, only implications. See One Shot and Serbin for more details, though.

"Depot" Edit

LOL Beat me to it. As I wrote on the Talk:Depot page (which I naturally had to create) you del'd the page. Byte Me (talk) 07:10, August 2, 2014 (UTC)

Main PageEdit

Would you have any objection to including a main page box under the Canon Games Box with a button linking to the embryonic Lost Alpha Wiki? Similar format of course. Byte Me (talk) 08:11, August 27, 2014 (UTC)

Nah, it was originally one of the ideas for modded sections I had in my head but didn't have the time to write down. Also, sorry for the late reply, I forgot I ran a wikia while dealing with IRL crap.
SHIELD unit (talk) 13:30, September 1, 2014 (UTC)


Wiki Achievements? Edit

Heya Shield Unit. You ever thought of including Wiki achievements? It just seems like a decent community extra IMO, harmless at least. --Charcharo (talk) 15:21, September 1, 2014 (UTC)

I did consider them for implementation when they started to become a thing everywhere, but I never got around developing the ideas I had for different achievements.
SHIELD unit (talk) 13:30, September 1, 2014 (UTC)

Hey what's up! It's been a while since I last posted on this wiki and caused a bit a trouble whilst at it as well. So how's everyone been for the past few years? The series I believe actually aged quite well.



The granter (talk) 02:30, November 17, 2014 (UTC)

hey Edit

Have you heard? G.S.C. Gameworld is back. And they are working on a "new game". But not sure yet what it is. There's hope!

N0la (talk) 00:36, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

Sorry I don't respond as fast as I used to, had work and not letting me check the internet much. Although yeah, I heard GSC was coming back, though I'm still checking further to see what's going to happen.
SHIELD unit (talk) 14:03, January 4, 2015 (UTC)

I heard it too! Actually the game is already out, for free on Steam. Survarium is its name. Some sort of "online S.T.A.L.K.E.R.". I didn't downloaded yet, but to tell the truth I'd rather see a new S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Marty15 (talk) 17:32, April 9, 2015 (UTC)

Do you play GRP? Edit

So, you play Ghost Recon Phantoms too? Maybe we can meet somedays and play a bit, what do you say? Marty15 (talk) 17:24, April 9, 2015 (UTC)

Ohh sorry for not responding. Well I used to, but I kinda didn't like the direction where Ubisoft was steering GR:P towards, so I quit playing for now. Donno if I'll honestly come back. GR:P keeps getting worse and worse every patch. SHIELD unit (talk) 10:58, April 16, 2015 (UTC)
