Re: OpenRA - Red Alert Wiki created

That link is buried very deep, yet the Wiki is useful enough to deserve a place on the homepage's community section , and/or to be migrated to an official server with an official domain. That is, unless I am overestimating its usefulness. And if someone believes so, please do explain. I am more than...

Re: OpenRA - Red Alert Wiki created

Impressive work!

Feel free to use the Wiki for your overlay. You should put a source link, so that users know where the content comes from and be able to contribute if they'd like, and also to comply with CC-BY-SA: https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/.

Re: OpenRA - Red Alert Wiki created

Hello, the Wiki has been active for a while but it is relatively little known. I believe good documentation is essential for a community. Is any of the staff interesting in making this project more known? Either by putting a link somewhere prominent, or by migrating it to official servers? I would l...

Running the game twice, is it safe?

I would like to watch replays while waiting in the lobby for others to join my game.

Running two instances of OpenRA on the same computer appears to work, but are there any dangers in doing so? Can it break something?

Minor Suggestion: Better Beeps When Watching Replies

I sometimes watch OpenRA videos while waiting for players to join my game. When I hear the chat "beep" sound, I check my game for messages or player joins. The "beep" sound in the videos is identical to the one in the actual game. This causes confusion when the sound originates from the videos. I've...

I'm still alive and monitoring wiki changes. I'm a bit less actively contributing, partly because the Wiki is mostly full, and partly because I have no time. Mustapha has been doing a great job maintaining the info up to date. I've added and updated some info today, and may do so a couple more times...

Stats: Mustapha has updated them even before the release was out. All good. Tactics: It's too early to update them, I'll need to watch how the meta shifts and what new tactics have evolved. By the way, for the exact same reason, I think it's too early to judge whether the targeting update is "good" ...

The second next thing I hear often is "the separation of developers of players". Is there really a divide between developers and players? That other day on IRC, some of the devs were surprised when I said that pretty much everyone disables shroud on multiplayer except for absolute beginners. Anyone...

Devs, As Anjew suggested, I think coordination would be beneficial for the community. I was wondering if we could cooperate, and possibly make this Wiki effort official if you're interested. As I mentioned before, I don't think this effort can be as effective if I use the GH wiki system, but I've th...

And I hope infoboxes for units and buildings will contain all factual info: cost, healthpoints, armor, vision, weapontypes, damageratio, ehr.. anything! Mustapha is on fire ! He's been on a stat-adding spree. There are many useful stats already. My personal opinion: only do official release... Soun...

I was not aware it was that soon.

MustaphaTR, feel free to add the testing values. I'll change back the AA gun.

Are the stats you've recently added Testing or Release?

Tooltips are a kind of "titles". Titles are already capitalized in the Wiki and are generally capitalized in English.

But I'm referring to paragraphs. Note that the dog's description popup says:

"Can detect cloaked units and spies".

"spies" is not capitalized in paragraphs.

Did someone just shadow ban me remove my post on Reddit? The post is deleted for others but visible from my account. (maybe it's an auto spam filter?)

Edit: it was a spam filter, and Scott_NZ approved it manually. Thanks!

Consistency is important. We need letter case consistency. The guidelines are already clear regarding page and section titles. ("An Eye for an Eye"). But what about referring to units and structures? Should we say "A Mobile Flak" or a "mobile flak"? We're not consistent in that regard esp. in inter-...
