The main focus of this wiki is providing a centralized hub for PC game fixes. However, if the fixes provided are not explained in a clean and easy to follow process, then they are useless. Ultimately, this defeats the purpose of this wiki.
This section handles two critical aspects of providing fixes: the Fixbox, and how to give instructions "properly".
--instructions go here--
The Fixbox is a specialized container used exclusively for fixes, workarounds, and step-by-step instructions. It provides a formal base for them, as well as keeping the wiki clean.
Due to the countless variability with games and potential workarounds, it is impossible to come up with rules for every single scenario. For the most part, the contributor will need to use their discretion to write clearly communicated instructions.
That being said, there are some base guidelines that can be applied to almost all fixes:
While each game has their own fixes and instructions, many of them share universal techniques that can be reused.
