    Re: Walkthroughs

    So, to make a little start, here is my Blank Blank Shoujo Walktrhough.
    Like i said above, its incomplete, but that might change soon.

      Re: Walkthroughs

      I support this idea.

      However, instead of making it its own sticky, why not put the list in the games list post? That way, we don't have an extra sticky lying around and if we have the game in the list, you can also see if it has its own walkthrough.

        Re: Walkthroughs

        That would be ok too of course, but who is going to organize that?
        And can Admins just shove a post between like... the first and the second?
        So that you have the first post a game list and the second one a walkthough list?
        I dont know, but i dont think that it works, so i suggested a sticky ^^

        Edit: Already found some walkthroughs to add, i hope u like it. :3

          Re: Walkthroughs

          I don't think they can just shove a brand-new post in between posts, but they can edit other people's posts. I'm positing an edit of that post, so we only have one sticky, and one post, and any link to a walkthrough is right under the link to the actual game.

            Re: Walkthroughs

            I have a couple problems with your suggestion, Alias. First, people around here tend to be blind and will most likely overlook the walkthroughs in the first place. If it were its own sticky, more people would take notice of it than if I just did something like change the title of the Game List thread to have"(THERE'S WALKTHROUGHS HERE)"... Actually, that'd probably work.

            The other problem is, I haven't updated the list in a looooong while. It'd take a very long time for me to get it back up to date, so a lot of games that we'd probably add wouldn't even be on the list in the first place.

              Re: Walkthroughs

              How about finding it trough a category like you choose from the list if you make a new thread ([Other], [Full Game])
              Just make a [Walktrough]

                @DarkFire
                Yea, i think there would be some problems, easiest thing:
                Some Admin should make this a sticky and we're good to go. ^^

                @Moonchaos:
                I think when someone is looking for a walkthrough for a game he is playing,
                he already knows the category and its easier to find it in an alphabetical ordered list.
                Or do you mean that EVERY walkthough should have its own thread?
                That would be even more complicated and overflowing the board ^^

                But still, thanks a lot for your interrest and ideas everyone.

                  Re: Walkthroughs

                  I would like to think the simplest thing is to have a walkthrough in the first post of the game it's posted. Really the only thing that makes sense to me, why would the walkthrough for the game not be with the game.

                    Re: Walkthroughs

                    1.) They would be scattered all over the place
                    2.) Not everyone would want to see it.
                    3.) Again Admins would have to edit the post, and delete what other people say about the game.
                    4.) You have to copy the post everytime a new version is released and gets a new thread.
                    5.) If the Walkthrough gets bigger, u would have to delete more and more user posts.

                    It would be nice to have them there, just like in the games list, but thats lot too much work.

                    And i dont think that most ppl would be happy when their posts get deleted / completely edited.

                    Again a nice idea, thanks, but not realy possible that easy.

                      No they wouldn't, they'd be with the games themselves.

                      Then they don't have to click the link or open the spoiler

                      Wouldn't have to delete anything. That's why I said ideally anyway, because they're up already. Here's how hard the extra step is. If you find the walkthrough, you already know the name, so you search the forum for that name.

                      You'd have to copy it every time either way, who cares. The game gets updated, the walkthrough gets updated, you throw in the edits for both in the first post of the game thread and everything's tidy.

                      No you wouldn't I have no idea why you think peoples posts have to be deleted just to put in extra information.

                        Re: Walkthroughs

                        1.) Yea, they would be as scattered as the games that are not in the "Game List".
                        2.) Ok, spoiler would be an idea
                        3.) So you CAN make new posts between post 1 and post 2 of a thread?
                        If no, then u can only add Walkthroughs to games with no second post in the thread OR edit the second post and with that delete what that person wrote.
                        4.) Why would you have to copy it when its in a list?
                        5.) see 3.

                        If you have a Walkthrough as big as mine, you need the ENTIRE second post and maybe more, there is no space to leave what that person wrote before.
                        (I had to delete a lot of redundant stuff in my Walkthrough because i wanted it to fit into one post ^^)

                        And i think that u would have to do that because Alias sayd:
                        "I don't think they can just shove a brand-new post in between posts, but they can edit other people's posts."


                        Edit: May i ask what all of you have against a list?

                        Is it realy easier to edit other people posts,
                        Squeze a whole walkthrough into a spoiler tag in the second post,
                        Maybe even deleting or moving other ppl's informations,
                        and then...
                        Use the forums search engine,
                        browse the over 9000 results for the right post,
                        open the thread and then looking into the spoiler,

                        then just writing it here, make a link in the first post,
                        and then...
                        open the list and click the link?

                        Editedit: I tried to search for some walkthroughs for the list and yes, it realy are like over 9000 results, alone like 1000 for Legend of Queen Opala...
                        I searched for like 30 minutes and look how few actual walkthroughs i found.
                        And btw, who is going to do all the work to add the Walkthroughs into hundreds of posts?

                          I don't understand why you seem to think hitting the "edit" button means some information of the post gets deleted.

                          Admin hits edit, adds some information, and doesn't remove anything. You don't have to delete a part of a post just to put in something. Case in point: Your last post. Did you delete anything in order to put the extra information in?

                            Yeah, I have to say I don't understand your misunderstanding of my position. I don't know what you think is required of anyone, but you're most likely incorrect.


                            The games here are all here. I don't know how to say that any easier. I know they're here because if they're not here, then they're not. So if the person gets the game off this site, which is most likely if this is where they're searching for the walkthrough, then the walkthrough would be RIGHT UNDER where they got the game from. That's the easiest thing I could ever think of. If you have the game on your computer already, you can use the search button for the title, and if someone has to wade through 9,000 different results, they're borderline retarded. Mod edits work the exact same way as individual edits, they just hit the first post, edit it, and throw in the walkthrough

                              Re: Walkthroughs

                              Well, if its so easy, then why isnt there a walkthrough in the second post of every game that has one?

                              And what about the RPGMaker games?
                              Those walkthroughs would be scattered all over the thread wich has like 100 Pages.

                              I just wanted to add something use and helpfull to this forums,
                              but if u guys are so much against that idea, then just leave it
                              and wait for some admin to add walkthroghs in the games posts,
                              wich will (i think) never happen.

                              @ToxinShock: Thanks for calling me retarded, how low are you?
                              No wonder you write bullshit like in your post before that.

                              Maybe you guys first read and then post before insulting others.

                              I hate to repeat myself but:
                              If you have a Walkthrough as big as mine, you need the ENTIRE second post and maybe more, there is no space to leave what that person wrote before.
