Technical Information page

Post by RayCarrot »

Earlier today I created this page for technical Rayman related information on the wiki, hoping to combine all patches, mods, fixes etc. for games on one easily accessible page. I'm going to eventually add more images and information myself, though I'd be happy for any help I can get as I might have missed some things etc.

https://raymanpc.com/wiki/en/Technical_information

Edit:
I'd also like to add that I'd very much appreciate any information regarding the rewards and requirements for the achievements in Adventures:

Great work! I'll add/modify a few things I'm aware of shortly as well.

Please read the manual of style, this article doesn't follow some of the directions. ;)

Also, does it not overlap a bit with Miscellanea?

Well the page is very different from other pages, so it was hard always following the manual of style. It did seem a bit weird saying "the player" when it's about the configuration of a game rather than the actual gameplay. But if it's something that should be changed I'm all up for doing so. Which things exactly do you think I should change then? Should I use "the player" instead of "you"? The beginning I can agree should be changed up a bit.
Regarding the Miscellanea article it was pretty messy before. I thought it'd be easier to have technical info on one page, and then the other things, like voice actors etc., on another. There was some discussion (https://raymanpc.com/wiki/en/Talk:Rayman_2_on_Mac) before regarding a technical page, so I made this test. I feel these questions get asked so often on forums etc., that having it all on one place would be easier.

I suppose "the player" wouldn't make much sense, but how about "the user"?

I don't think "Technical Information" is the best name for it either. How about "Fixes & Enhancements", or something to a similar effect?

Yeah, "the user" would sound better. If that's fine with Hunch I can change it to that.
Edit: I've now changed it to "the user" and cleaned up a few things.

Hm, maybe so. It's more about how to actually fix issues rather than just plain information.

Yeah, I think “the user” is better. There's also the game titles which are not italicized and sometimes don't contain a link.

I still counted 5 missing links and 11 titles without italics so I just went ahead and edited them myself because at this rate we weren't gonna be finished anytime soon. :P

Oh, thanks. I thought when the same game name was repeated so close by that it didn't need to be linked twice, and I missed the ones which were part of the external links. Thanks.

No problem. The non-repeating thing is a weird Wikipedia rule but there's no reason to have it here as it would only make navigation harder. ;)

How many times have I had to use the browser's search feature to find a linked occurence of a word on Wikipedia. :lol:

I hope someday I can be good at technical stuff like this.
