  • Well I found a script for a tooltip system and after a lot of hard work I managed to install it here. It has some quirks, but it's working fine now.

    What about you? Haven't seen you editing in a while. Everything ok? Or are you just bored with this stuff?

  • There are a lot of references in articles about hitting a button to do something. I was thinking about ideas on how to give information about which button to hit (by default) without adding too many words to the text.

    A template could add a small icon next to the text, which (when hovered over) will show the key/button/mouse combo you need to press to perform the function. The template would need to draw the icon, with a caption that lists the buttons for each platform (PC/XBOX/PS, etc). The arguments for the template would define the buttons.

    A template like this would need to work with a lot of Javascript to make the caption look right. It would need to create a small floating tooltip box that is browser-independent. I don't think the MediaWiki system can do this natively.

    Is this something you can do? Or is it too complicated?

    • In the menu bar, click "Window" -> "Character". This will pop up the text adjustment panel. It has a button there that looks like an italicized letter "T", which makes any font slanted. Alternatively, you can use "Transform" -> "Skew" to italicize... well... anything you want, really. With this method you can then decide exactly how much slant you need!

    • Ahh. Was wondering if it was a custom angle or not. Guess it isn't

  • The process I use on the images really isn't that complicated and only takes about 15 seconds for each image. If you're using Photoshop, I can probably teach you how to do it with just a couple of instructions. Then you can create and upload them yourself.

    BTW, I do still think that we should upload all of the original store images to this Wiki - I just don't think they should appear on Equipment articles, as I explained earlier. The only problem is the naming scheme - the FS17_[brand]-[model].png is just the syntax I'm using for the processed images, and I hope to keep it that way. You could upload the original files under any other naming scheme, such as FS17_[brand]-[model]_store.png or anything like that - and use them wherever they are appropriate.

    • Hmm. Where would we show the store images though?

    • I don't know. There's bound to be places where they would make more sense than the processed images. For instance, I think the List of Tractors looks better with original images because they show the difference in size between tractors (to some extent, anyway).

  • I found the feature switch in the Wiki Features page, and switched it on. I assume this is what you were referring to earlier. Let's see how useful this is.

    Also, what are your thoughts on enabling the Live Chat feature?

    • I see no problem enabling it. Not sure how often people will be on at the same time.
