From PCGamingWiki, the wiki about fixing PC games
This is up to date as of March 2014. It is not guarantee to be updated consistently or quickly, use at your own risk.
These are for my personal use, and are customized as such. They may not be suitable for use by others not knowledgeable on the way articles are supposed to be formatted. For more information on that, see our official Sample Article.
If you have questions about anything on this page, feel free to ask me on my Talk page.

Templates

Fixbox

Empty template for "fixboxes". "Description" should be filled out with a brief description of the fix, e.g. "Verify the integrity of the game cache".
{{Fixbox|1=
{{Fixbox/fix|Description}}

}}

References

These are to be used for references which are used multiple times in a single page. If multiple parts of a single article can be sourced from a singular source, use this template to avoid repetitive references.

<ref name="NAME">URL</ref> | <ref name="NAME" />

Seriesbox

Empty template for "Series" pages, e.g. Series:Half-Life.
[[]] should be replaced with an interwiki link to the game's article.
The year of release goes after the interwiki link and |, e.g. .../row|[[Game]]|2012}}.
DLC should not link to another page on the wiki, as they shouldn't have their own separate pages. They also shouldn't have a release year in their row.
The "DLC" row can also be used to refer to Expansion Packs.
{{Seriesbox|title={{SUBST:PAGENAME}}|entries=
{{Seriesbox/row|[[]]|}}
{{Seriesbox/dlc|}}
{{Seriesbox/row|[[]]|}}
}}<noinclude>[[Category:Series]]</noinclude>

Key template

Template for visual representation of keyboard buttons.

Enter | {{key|Keyname}}

See "Setting"

"See 'Setting'" is used in the Notes column of the Settings templates to link to a relevant section in the article which may provide further information on the relevant setting, including fixing issues with said setting.
See [[#Widescreen resolution|Widescreen resolution]].

See [[#Multi-monitor|Multi-monitor]].

See [[#Field of view (FOV)|Field of view (FOV)]].

See [[#Windowed|Windowed]].

See [[#Borderless fullscreen windowed|Borderless fullscreen windowed]].

Settings Section Headers

These section headers are to be used as subheaders beneath their respective settings templates, e.g. Video, Input, or Audio Settings.

Development tags

Development tags, much like stub or cleanup tags, are to be used for games which are in a stage of pre-release development. The exception being "postdev", which is to be used to label games which are actively being updated and changed despite being fully released and making no mention of an "Alpha" or "Beta" state.
{{State|state=predev}}

{{State|state=alpha}}

{{State|state=beta}}

{{State|state=postdev}}

Game data paths

These are templates for paths to game data locations, they are for use with the Game data tables.
See the Template:Path article for more information.
  • game - <path-to-game>
  • uid - <user-id>
  • hkcu - HKEY_CURRENT_USER
  • hklm - HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
{{p|game}}

{{p|uid}}

OS-based cheat sheets

Windows Only

Template for creation of barebones articles about games which only support Windows.
Most templates left empty for ease of filling out, not filling these out may cause issues with the page upon saving.

The following is the full list of currently supported languages, in the order they should be listed in this template. English, followed by all others in alphabetical order.
If a language isn't supported whatsoever, there's no reason to put it in the table. Only include supported languages in this template.
Games which support EFIGS (English, French, Italian, German, Spanish) are common. The following is a template for EFIGS games.

Miscellaneous generic-usage sections and fixes

Collapsible Table

Tables which are vertically lengthy may preferably be collapsable, or collapsed by default, as not to take up too much room on a page.
This is especially helpful to users who don't need to see/use the table because it isn't relevant to their issue.
Collapsible:
{| class="mw-collapsible wikitable"
|-
! Header text !! Header text !! Header text
|-
| Example || Example || Example
|-
| Example || Example || Example
