What are the rules

Sorry to drag you into this; you're simply an admin whose talk page isn't locked. Simple question: what on earth happened here:

http://www.imfdb.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Mutant_Chronicles&action=history

My notes on the talk page for the were a genuine and good-faith attempt to contribute and they were deleted without comment. I presume I've offended some obscure house rule of yours, but regardless, it's a pretty arrogant and unilateral thing to do on the part of MoviePropMaster2008, and hardly the way to encourage people to get involved.

Gun Brand Pages

Yo. So now that at least 2 admins have contributed to the new "Gun Brand Pages" is it safe to say the idea is sticking? I want to keep working on these but I dont want to spend all this time just to have them deleted. I'm still new to this site so whats the procedure for getting this approved by the powers that be? Happy holidays, Zackmann08 08:06, 24 December 2011 (CST)

Thanks for your help with the Heckler & Koch page. Any feedback? You like the format? --Zackmann08 14:46, 25 December 2011 (CST)

Kampfpistole

Thanks for your remarks, they make perfect sense. I did not check my e-mail in the last few minutes so I was totally unaware that somebody else (you) was working on the same page. This way we can keep eachother busy, right? My apologies for driving you crazy!

Reason that I wanted to rename 'Walther Kampfpistole' to a more generic 'Kampfpistole' is that today I read an about the history of this gun. Originally a flare pistol ("Heeresmodell 1934"), from 1943 onwards it was produced by both Walther and Erma as ‘Kamppistole’ (no further numeric nomination) having a big 'Z' on the side indicating that it had 'Zuege' (German for grooves) so that small explosive charges could be fired more accurately. The article did not indicate an original designing manufacturer so I figured removing ‘Walther’ would be the right thing to do. If you say that Walther is indeed the company where it all started, then I can only agree to keep matters as they are.

As for the LP-42, I see what you mean. Problem is that ‘Kampfpistole’ is actually a very generic name simply meaning ‘battle pistol’ (just like ‘assault rifle’ may apply to AK-47 and M16 alike). In this case, both guns are correctly referred to as ‘Kampfpistole’ but they are of completely different design. As such, I would suggest to remove the ‘Kampfpistole Z’ image from the LP-42 page, leave matters as they are and not merge, wouldn’t you agree?

By the way, what do you mean by “please don't edit war, it doesn't help”? I am not aware I have been changing anything else today than the Kampfpistole. Take care, let me know what you think and Merry Christmas, --PeeWee055 10:36, 24 December 2011 (CST)

Good to see your remarks, be my guest to make changes; I will stay away from the subject for a few days hahaha Not sure of you are aware, but 'Leuchtpistole' is yet another generic nomination. It's German for 'Flare Pistol' so I think it would not be correct to put all 'Leuchtpistols' on one page, not in the least because the designs are very different. Take care, --PeeWee055 10:58, 24 December 2011 (CST)

Spammer

Since you are one of the most active admins on this site, here is a spammer I consider banning: Grishacka1929. Highlighted in blue is his contribution. - Kenny99 18:52, 24 December 2011 (CST)

This guys is crazy

He's a raving asshat. He's another Liam, save for the fact he does know his 1911s. But he's also being a jerk. Okay, so M1911 is the MILITARY designation, the Colt Govt. Model is the company's name for the pistols they sold to the public. M1911 is used by a lot of people as a generic description for that type of pistol. When I say Commercial M1911, I mean a commercial version of the M1911. There is nothing actually erroneous about that description. But think about it. People KNOW the difference between the M1911 and the M1911A1, they know that there were improvements made between the wars. Just calling them the Govt Model doesn't help people to ultimately get to know the difference. Boy, I sure attract a lot of guys who hate on me. This guy needs anger management. Now if we need to update the descriptions, we can. On his conduct, you were right. His rage makes him an unacceptable element on IMFDB. Doesn't matter how much he knows. If he becomes that abusive that quickly, then he is not the personality type that moves IMFDB forward. Thanks for the note. I think I (we as in you're a mod too) need to come up with a code of conduct that warns people to be polite. There are sites out there that are so deathly afraid of offending someone's sensibilities or their freedom of speech, that they are often held hostage by people who promote bad behavior. We welcome corrections when they are done in the right way. MoviePropMaster2008 03:20, 25 December 2011 (CST)


Se7en

Sorry, but this page is really kind of ruined when the actor's name is mentioned. It's not really vital on this page to know who the actor was that used the weapon is on this page as much as what character used it. I understand that you disagree with a lot of edits that a particular user makes, but I'll be on the case to let the user know if the edits go overboard. --Ben41 04:30, 25 December 2011 (CST)

Kampfpistole Z

Any objections? Sounds reasonable. (I hadn't really been following the Kampfpistole saga, I sort of just stumbled into it.) --Funkychinaman 16:08, 27 December 2011 (CST)

Salt featured article

Can you change the Salt entry on the featured article template from a SIG SG553 to a P556 SWAT with a SG550 lower please, as it is locked to me. I recently changed it on the Salt page, but featured article just came up and noticed it was now wrong. --commando552 05:04, 29 December 2011 (CST)

Dead links

Hey man, I've been working on converting a number of pages from the list format over to a wikitable. I've noticed that there are some cases where a movie is listed, but there is no page for that movie. For example, if you look at the M1911A1, about halfway down the Films section Nowhere to Run (1993) is listed, but there is no page for it. Should it be removed when I convert it to a table?

(As a side note, I'm not actually editing the M1911 page, that was just the quickest example I could find.) --Zackmann08 15:52, 4 January 2012 (CST)

Gotcha. That's super helpful! Thanks.--Zackmann08 23:00, 4 January 2012 (CST)

Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2009

Yeah, did some reseach, this game is available in Europe, bt it is under a different name (Same game, different name), it is called "Cabela's Dangerous Adventures". And it is available for the PS2, PS3, Wii, and Xbox 360 (The page is for the Xbox/PS3 version). Don't know if you have an Xbox or a PS3, so that is up to you, and it is dirt cheap by now. - User:1morey January 15, 2012 12:40 PM (EST)

Copyrights

Hey man. I was just updating a page and I noted that the "copyrights" link at the bottom that shows up any time you edit a page is now red. When I clicked on it I noticed that you deleted the page. Just wanted to make sure you were aware that every time you edit a page or a discussion post, a link to that page shows up on the bottom. Any issue with me putting up a redirect on the old Copyright page that takes you to the "General disclaimer" page? --Zackmann08 10:18, 16 January 2012 (CST)

Copyright page

There's still time... (Seriously though, is there any legal reason why TOS's and disclaimers have to be a solid block of text? During my newspaper days, we avoided solid blocks of text whenever possible and cringed whenever we saw them in other papers. It's just telling readers "Don't read this.") --Funkychinaman 12:36, 16 January 2012 (CST)

Manufacturer Template

I created a template for the manufacturer pages (Manufacturer Template). I am going to add a link to it from the [[Category:Manufacturer]] page. I would love any input from you and other admins on it. I want to make it as straight forward as possible. Thanks! --Zackmann08 13:36, 19 January 2012 (CST)


GLOCK

GLOCK (in all caps) is the official name of the company as stated on their website. --Ben41 06:31, 21 January 2012 (CST)

Re: NSV

Hi. Thanks for the info. It is strange though, why would KBP have an image of the Kord on their site, which is made by Degtyarev? --bozitojugg3rn4ut 11:27, 22 January 2012 (CST)

I am totally confused now... >< Please delete the pic then, I reupload it with a correct name if and when I will make a page for the Degtyarev compnay. Thanks. --bozitojugg3rn4ut 12:56, 22 January 2012 (CST)

no

Idontthinksotim

I don't this is actually directed to you. It's a catchphrase from the American series Home Improvement. --Funkychinaman 04:41, 21 February 2012 (CST)

Top Shot - Season 3

Hey man. I saw your edit on Top Shot - Season 3. While I get what your saying that revolvers technically are pistols... That distinction isn't made elsewhere on the site. For example, the NCIS and Burn Notice pages, some of the most popular on the site, list Pistols and Revolvers. It seems like an unnecessary distinction to make... I respect my elders and know you are an admin, I'm not trying to get into a pissing contest or anything but it just seems unnecessary to me, particularly since that isn't the way it is done elsewhere on the site. Thoughts? --Zackmann08 15:44, 23 February 2012 (CST)

IMHO, it seems like Pistols and Revolvers fall under the overall heading of Handguns... "When distinguished as a subset of handguns, a pistol is a handgun with a chamber that is integral with the barrel, as opposed to a revolver, wherein the chamber is separate from the barrel as a revolving cylinder." Webster gives a similar definition. I take back what I said previously. Based on a little more research it seems that a "pistol" always refers to a Handgun where the chamber is integrated in the barrel. For example, a Derringer would be a pistol despite not being semi-auto. Any handgun with a rotating cylinder would be a revolver and they would all fall under the overall category of Handguns. --Zackmann08 16:48, 23 February 2012 (CST)
Thats actually really interesting! Never knew you guys defined it differently over there. :-) --Zackmann08 11:24, 24 February 2012 (CST)

SOCOM 4

So I'm in the middle of leaving a message for Commandoninja137 (the guy who created the SOCOM 4 page, if were calling 'that' a page...) warning him that the page was about to be deleted because of his lack of effort. I had JUST added the nuke tag to the page right before i posted the message on his discussion page. When i posted it with the [[SOCOM 4]] tag, the link came up in red. I'm thinking "huh, I musta mispelled it"... but no. You beat me to the punch and got rid of the page literally seconds after I nuked it. GOOD MANNNN!!! :-) --Zackmann08 15:29, 25 February 2012 (CST)

I'm kind of surprised the page lasted as long as it did. I wanted to just delete the stuff copied from Wikipedia, but then the page would be completely empty and would look even worse. --Funkychinaman 15:45, 25 February 2012 (CST)
Yes, I know. I grew suspicious because it was a little too... nice. I cleaned up and consolidated the dead links a few months back, and I don't think there's a single SOCOM game here that could be considered complete. I know they're console only, but still...

DVD Screenshots

I mostly have DVD and the Blue-Ray I have is a Blue-Ray/DVD combo pack so I'm set. What I'm wondering though is can you get screencaps from things like Hulu and Netflix? --Yo dawg 111 09:29, 26 February 2012 (CST)

Re: G36C

It indeed looks similar, although the nomenclature appears to be different. Anyways, I will add it and if someone can find a better match, he will change it. Thanks. --bozitojugg3rn4ut 12:52, 27 February 2012 (CST)

Masterkey in Homefront

Hi. Please change the Masterkey's gun image on the Homefront page to this one, as this has a slightly better quality, and it is visible that the rifle is actually a KAC SR-16, not a Colt M4.

Masterkey shotgun mounted on a KAC SR-16 rifle - 12 Gauge

Thank you. --bozitojugg3rn4ut 07:55, 25 March 2012 (CDT)

Grenades

DAMITTTTTT. Sorry about that mate. I will be more careful. Frankly I didn't know there was such thing as an Airsoft grenade... Thanks for alerting me to the mistake. :-)

While I'm writing to ya, I might as well mention the AK Gallery. I totally get what you are saying about guns like the Dragunov and will 100% defer to your judgment. I felt like it was worth putting them on the page since they look similar but if you don't think they belong, I totally understand. It's all about what will be most useful in identifying the guns. :-) --Zackmann08 11:23, 27 March 2012 (CDT)

Doom Nuke tag

I put the nuke tag due to this subsection of the rules. http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/Rules,_Standards_and_Principles#Anime:_Rules_.26_Restrictions Also the page was previously deleted on the same grounds. --AdAstra2009 23:42, 30 March 2012 (CDT)

The Dark Knight

A) Seriously? You've never seen The Dark Knight? B) Yes, that is a bigger spoiler, I'd tell you more, but I don't want to spoil anything for you, C) Come on, seriously? --Funkychinaman 02:11, 5 April 2012 (CDT)

Which is the reason why I removed the reference in the page. That particular user who wrote those captions constantly gives away important plot points for no good reason. The user has been warned. --Ben41 03:19, 5 April 2012 (CDT)

This is Glock17gen4, why was I blocked?

I have done nothing wrong, and you blocked me and reverted my edits. Here's the reason you left: "(Abusing multiple accounts: Hey there Burt, you're still banned, go away.)" My name isn't Burt, it's Danny. I tryed to use the Glock17gen4 account to contact you about this but it wouldnt allow me to leave a message on your talk page, I would like the block reverted please, as I dont know who this "Burt" is and have done nothing wrong. I really think you have me confused with someone else...PS: do you have email we can discuss this on? SaferSephiroth 20:40, 6 April 2012 (CDT)

What's all this then?

http://www.imfdb.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:Bunni&redirect=no#I_need_you_or_another_admins_help.2C_my_other_account_was_blocked_wrongfully. Is this the usual suspect? bunni 17:19, 7 April 2012 (CDT)

I am not this Burt Reynolds Mustache or Person of Interest guy, please quit blocking me!

Dont you check for IPs before you make such decisions? I am not this character you think I am. Please unblock me! The only reason I changed the gun on the PD page is I was going off of what the GE 007 page said. If that wasn't right then I am sorry, I did not know. I just know all the classic guns in PD are based off Goldeneye 007's guns. I was trying to keep the page accurate, is there anything wrong with that? RugerLord 14:25, 8 April 2012 (CDT)

ET, do whatever you think is best. bunni 14:40, 8 April 2012 (CDT)

FlaK

Very sorry. I've heard of what you're talking about, but thought it was abbreviated differently.

Read the rest on that bunni guys page

Hey listen, I'm sorry about messing up your page, but seriously dude. You didnt listen to me when I was nice, and I'm sorry about Rockwolf's page too. I have no issue with anyone on this site except you because you keep wrongfully banning me after I helped out. I contacted other admins and the sites owner about this. And you still wouldnt give me a fair chance, so yes, I'm human, I went off on you because I had had enough. I like guns and Goldeneye, I really wanna help with this site, but if I keep being harassed, then how can I do that? PS: I also didnt take to kindly to you and your friend refering to Irish people as "Liams". I'm Irish, and that offends me. ColdSteel 20:48, 9 April 2012 (CDT)

Ok done

It wont allow me to change on the Goldeneye 007 main page but I put the upload on the Walther PP series page and the Goldeneye talk page, it's a genuine .32 ACP PPK the same as Bond uses, and I think you'll like the pic quality alot. ColdSteel 21:21, 9 April 2012 (CDT)

Blocked User

The poster was obnoxious and irritating. I just felt like if he comes back he doesn't need to get the change to be an jackass again. Meant to block him earlier, but then I forgot. --Jcordell 13:59, 11 April 2012 (CDT)

Ellipses

You're right, there's no reason to correct them, but is there a reason I shouldn't? Seriously, if there's a reason, I'll stop. --Cheywoodward2 20:32, 12 April 2012 (CDT)

Alright, I will stop be such so pedantic about my ellipses. I may forget once or twice. If I end up doing so you my have my apologies. Also, your writing style makes you seem like a very pleasant and knowledgeable person.

Re: Trolling

The whole argument of the section didn't have anything to do with improving the page in question. Yet I'm being the target of moderation. How more unfair can it get? --Masterius 09:25, 14 April 2012 (CDT)

That would be a fair argument if the 'not-forum' rule was enforced and the only thing one could find on Talk Pages is weapons and accessories identification and nothing else. But that's just not true. And a simple commentary among many others won't suddenly cause IMFDB to collapse. --Masterius 09:37, 14 April 2012 (CDT)
I did not want to go into the whole political debate on who's right and who's wrong. Are you sure there were no points that could have gotten a rise out of me? --Masterius 09:45, 14 April 2012 (CDT)

OK, OK, Mr. Wolf was right. You won. So long, and thanks for all the fish. --Masterius 09:49, 14 April 2012 (CDT)

Sorting Out User names

Thanks for taking care of that. When I don't see any further contributions right after a new user account is made, I tend to be more suspicious. --Ben41 16:29, 16 April 2012 (CDT)

Bot

Have you notified the other admins? Are they aware of the situation? It's hard to tell who's online sometimes, but I'll do what I can. --Funkychinaman 16:55, 17 April 2012 (CDT)

So it's an American bot. Anyway, I'll do what I can. I'll probably be monitoring for another hour, then I have to step out. I should be back on later tonight though. --Funkychinaman 17:06, 17 April 2012 (CDT)

Glock 18C

Hey man, so I just noticed that some guy has once again tried to replace the Glock 18C image with his own. You had previously reverted his upload... Rather then reverting it myself, I thought I would mention it to you... Picture in Question. --Zackmann08 14:11, 19 April 2012 (CDT)

FNP

Hey man. Some guy just made a bunch of weird edits to the FNP page. He changed all the specifications for the FNP-45 to values that are not correct (based on both wikipedia and the FN website). He also added a ransom show that has no page on the site. Do you mind rolling back his edits so I don't have to correct each mistake? Thanks! --Zackmann08 17:37, 19 April 2012 (CDT)

Chronological Order

I'd have to dig it up in the forums but I was told by a Mod a couple years back that if the page has a relatively low number of firearms (20 or less) to use chronological order. --AdAstra2009 13:36, 20 April 2012 (CDT)

Forum

I made your forum account a moderator. bunni 15:44, 21 April 2012 (CDT)

Devil May Cry.

Aite. No worries. :-) --Zackmann08 11:04, 6 May 2012 (CDT)

Nukes...

I'm sorry. You're right. :-( Let me explain where I'm coming from (just so you don't think I'm trolling the site looking for pages to nuke). I am in the process of trying to convert every gun page from the list format to table format. As I go through, whenever I find an entry that is missing a date I go to that entries page. If that page has an "incomplete" tag, is far from complete and hasn't had any work done in a longgg time, I have been nuking them. As was mentioned in the forum, these are (for the most part), drive-by creations. Pages made by a user who was here for a few weeks and then never returned.

But, at the end of the day, you are correct. I will tone it down on the nuke tags and reserve them for REALLY poor pages. Sorry. --Zackmann08 09:52, 7 May 2012 (CDT)

re: M57

Yeah, and looks like he added a bunch of other Zastava guns that were not featured in anything yet. bozitojugg3rn4ut 16:02, 7 May 2012 (CDT)

Infoboxes

Hey. So first off, a disclaimer, I am posting the following message for each of the Admins so don't think I'm spamming. Just want to get input from all of you. I have been working on a number of infoboxes for different pages (Template:Infobox Movie, Template:Infobox TV, Template:Infobox Video Game). I have already gotten some help from Bunni who installed an additional add-on to facilitate the templates. I would love to get some feedback from you (and other admins) regarding these. Do you like the format? Are there things you would like changed? Should additional information be added? The nice thing is that with the add-on that Bunni installed, you do not have to provide all the information for the infobox. Any variables left blank will simply not be printed.

Finally, I would like to see how you feel about my adding these to pages. I have gotten positive feedback from a number of users (including at least 3 admins) but before I add this to more than a dozen or so pages (which I have done for testing purposes) I want to really get full permission. I know that sweeping changes are a MAJOR no-no without full admin approval. Check out the thread in the forum (http://forum.imfdb.org/showthread.php?t=1942). I look forward to hearing your feedback! :-) --Zackmann08 11:15, 9 May 2012 (CDT)

"The following weapons..."

Oops.... I haven't exactly been consistent on that one. Thanks for letting me know. Sorry about that. --Zackmann08 16:57, 11 May 2012 (CDT)

That makes sense. I will make sure to do that from now on. Sorry (again...) --Zackmann08 12:12, 15 May 2012 (CDT)

RE5

No, it was with an AI Sheva. I cannot play co-op because the online part of G4WL games does not work in Slovakia. BTW, there was an Ithaca and a Skorpion in her inventory, but no ammo for them, so probably that is why she went with the Beretta. (I also put grenades and mines to her inventory, so that she cannot pick up ammo.) - bozitojugg3rn4ut 12:27, 16 May 2012 (CDT)

Minor Note

I totally get what your saying and agree. We did discuss this a while back. I have stopped removing the entry with the exception of pages that were deleted for not meeting IMFDB standards. And even then I only remove them if the media in question doesn't meet standards, not just because the page wasn't complete. In other words if the page was deleted because no one had worked on it I leave the entry but if the page was deleted because it was a Documentary or a youtube video then I do delete the entry. Thanks for staying on this! --Zackmann08 14:07, 22 May 2012 (CDT)

Image Error

I would try to upload an image to overwrite it eg. uploading something with the same file name. May be a size issue. bunni 15:48, 31 May 2012 (CDT)

GoldenEye

Hey. Thanks for taking care of GoldenEye 007 for me! What do you think of the new templates? --Zackmann08 13:46, 5 June 2012 (CDT)

Your LAW Pic

No offense, but is that a picture YOU took? Also the end cap has broken off and that particular one is a trainer (not the sub caliber trainer but a classroom trainer) MoviePropMaster2008 21:37, 5 June 2012 (CDT)

aha

Yes, that is the first model LAW, the M72. It doesn't have the metal framed front site but has a solid piece of clear plastic. When the Army demilled them, they just snapped off the plastic front plate, which makes it hard to fix because the clear plastic base (with the spring) is still in the sight base. Apparently that was done because the first pattern sights were 'night sights' and were "radioactive". That pic is still a trainer though. I will try to post a pic of the actual first pattern LAW. I have one, but like most folks, my front sight is broken. They really did some weird stuff to that LAW for the film though (pyro insert tube not withstanding). :D MoviePropMaster2008 13:56, 12 June 2012 (CDT)

Thank ya!

Many thanks bud! I promise to use my powers for good. If you, or any of the other admins, ever feel I'm over stepping, please let me know. I may be an admin now, but I still defer to the more senior admins. As for the bot, it is a giant work in progress. If I actually manage to figure out how to make it work, we will get creative with the name. :-) --Zackmann08 14:39, 26 June 2012 (CDT)

Are you the same Evil Tim who Let's Played Castlevania 64? Kadorhal 16:42, 14 July 2012 (CDT)

RE:Stinger / Redeye

Done, does that look ok? They don't really look as alike as the SVD and PSL, think it is just the case that people seem to identify any shoulder launched missile as a Stinger when they don't know what it it. --commando552 03:33, 27 July 2012 (CDT)

Template: Screenshot

I took care of the optional argument for a page title. That was a really good idea... If you have any more ideas like that, give me a holler and I'll make um happen. --Zackmann08 13:18, 31 July 2012 (CDT)


Evil Tim?

Evil Tim? As in the lets-player? If so... FINISH GOLDENEYE DAMNIT! Also, I love you :3 --Cheers, Chris J 03:10, 7 August 2012 (CDT)

Killer Uzi

It looks like this guy is the Everybody Hates Chris guy. I was going to perma-ban him just for that, but it turns out that the last guy to make that page WASN'T banned. What do you think? --Funkychinaman 07:50, 8 August 2012 (CDT)

I thought that too, but do you think he's smart enough to completely switch genres? Van tu/leavemealone/Michael Myers covered all the same pages and had the same MO with all of this accounts. --Funkychinaman 08:39, 8 August 2012 (CDT)
Talked again, you're right, probably the same kid. I gave him six months. You can go over the transcript, maybe you'd like to give him more. --Funkychinaman 18:26, 16 August 2012 (CDT)
KillerUzi seemed a bit calmer than Liam, who obviously is venting his rage (at Zackmann, of all people, who wasn't even a user much less an admin when he got booted.) I don't think he'd claim to be younger than he actually was. Liam's previous lies have been about inflating his self worth. Besides, we have a name for KillerUzi. --Funkychinaman 08:35, 17 August 2012 (CDT)
Oh, a copycat. I got to read his deleted bio a few minutes ago. Upstate NY and no caps. Declan (KillerUzi) is from upstate NY as well. Oh well, we have a new tidbit for his IMDb page: "Does not take rejection well." --Funkychinaman 08:52, 17 August 2012 (CDT)
Is KillerUzi the same as Gunner95 then? We made the connection because they both claimed to be 10 year old filmmakers. Gunner95 kept trying to make a page for HIS film, a film no one else could've possibly have seen, which is actually documented on IMDb. The other pages that Gunner95 made also gel with Declan's IMDb bio. So let's lay out the facts here: Layla was a sleeper, almost definitely planted by Liam. His bio also fits with Liam's air force fantasy. Layla also came overnight (East Coast time,) so Layla is probably not Declan (who's a ten year old on the east coast). Weston has the same MO as Layla, but claims to be from the same area as Declan, and that's something he could've only known if he either knew Declan or his movie, since neither KillerUzi or Gunner95 disclosed that here.

Re AKS-47

Don't we already have an image of a Type 3 AKS-47? Also, the one you're adding has a bit too much white space at the top and bottom. Evil Tim 10:07, 13 August 2012 (CDT) Okey, well I thought that the picture was a good display of a T3 underfolder. But if I cut the picture so there's less white, would it be better? --TheJoker

Hey

Sure, if you want. I didn't think I had enough to warrant an archive though. As for Goldeneye, looks good. If you have a game that brings in a bunch of kids, mistakes come with the territory. The guns in the game certainly look a lot better than the original. (I still can't believe all the grief the original has caused.) BTW, what do you use to get console caps? My capture device kinda sucks, and I've been thinking about upgrading. --Funkychinaman 10:02, 14 August 2012 (CDT)

Ah yes, Hauppauge! I had one of their TV capture cards back in the day. I'd still use it if I was trying to get caps from an NES. I tried getting caps for Call of Duty: Finest Hour a few months ago with the no-name device I had, and it sucked. I've been looking into upgrading. --Funkychinaman 11:09, 14 August 2012 (CDT)

I don't know why they keep trying to trade on the Goldeneye name when there are plenty of other Bond titles that have never had a game. I was encouraged when EA did the From Russia with Love game, but I guess Activision thought differently. --Funkychinaman 08:45, 15 August 2012 (CDT)

Removed Picture of SIG-Sauer P228

Why have you removed my picture of a SIG-Sauer P228!? It is a blankadapted gun and I haven't removed the other picture of a P228. Tell me why please. --thejoker

Removed Picture of Kalshnikov AKS

Have you also removed my picture of a AKS with folding stock unfolded? Why do you do this, whats wrong whit the pictures according to you? It has taken me quite alot of time to find these images and crop or cut them down whatever, it makes me a bit irritated to be frank with you. --thejoker

Re Removed Picture of SIG-Sauer P228

This picture is also of a blankadapted SIG, and I didn't remove the other picture of a SIG, I only added mine that is in high quallity defination. Also even if the picture already there is a SIG P228, i don't claim otherwise, actually looks more like a air-soft gun. Look at the talkpages for SIGs and you see other has maked that claim, and said that they would have wanted an aditional picture. --thejoker

HI there Evil Tim. I admit that the Sig P228 is probably the worst gun in our inventory. It had been slid under a truck and had been actually repaired several times. It is NOT an airsoft, but it does look like crap. The grips were sanded down for some strange reason a long time ago and I don't know why. I will pull another P228 today and resubmit it. Great work BTW. I've been pretty busy with movies and stuff so I have not had time to resubmit gun pics. MoviePropMaster2008

Re Removed Picture of Kalashnikov AKS

You are right that it is a small picture, but it is the only picture of an actual AKS with the stock unfolded, the old picture I put up which was taken from the right side I removed because I had touble uploading it and if you use it you have to put it in uneven, strange, number of pixels or it will look compressed. The size of the new picture is adequate in size to use, I thougt You shouldn't have the reference picture the same size as the screencaps anyway. --thejoker

Re Removed Pictures

Okey, I wont argue any more about the SIG P228 picture as he will upload a new one. Why I started replacing AKS pictures was because users had used the Type I AKS with a stamped receiver when the guns in the screencaps were clearly of milled receiver type, also since the Type I AKS had it's stock unfolded I thought it would fit to have a Type III with a stuck unfolded, wich makes the guns in the picture match the AKs with woodn' stock in size which looks better.The picture that I uploaded before, the one that looked compressed, sometimes actually needed to change more than one px, not always though, to update so it would look uncompressed. I tried whit one and then took of one px at a time untill updated. I'm not the best at how all this stuff work I admitt that but I'm telling you what actually hapened. If MoviePropMaster2008s pictures is the ones to go with we, or you as I don't know how to talk to him on his page, sould ask him to upload an aditional picture of an AKS Type III with it's stock unfolded. --thejoker

Smith & Wesson Revolver In Code Name Red Rooster (Täcknamn Coq Rouge)

Are you good with identifying revolvers?

I can't see if the barrel is tapered but it looks slimmer then what a barrel of a Model 29 in .44 Magnum (wich it is said to be in dialouge) appears to be. I appreciate help with. --thejoker

"Personal Attack" on Rockwolf66

Evil Tim, when I reversed his reversion of my reply to him on the M16 Series Talk page, I removed the Personal Attack thing and just left the rest of my reply to him. Can I bring back my comment again without anything that could be seen as attack? Jeddostotle7 15:28, 3 September 2012 (CDT)

Yeah, I was going to remove the second half. Also, yeah, even though the STANAG magazines were never fully accepted by NATO, they're still called STANAG. Also, apparently, they're a "Draft STANAG". Jeddostotle7 09:07, 4 September 2012 (CDT)

Sorry for not getting to this sooner but I found this article and apparently the Hind A can mount Yak B's and they can mount the GSh-30K.

Just FYI, the gun on the Mi-24A (don't say Hind-A as that is a NATO designation referring to several different versions with different armaments) has a Afanasev A-12.7 machine gun. --commando552 (talk) 17:47, 7 September 2012 (EDT)

Tactical Ops: Assault on Terror isn't my page. I am just cleaning up the grammar and adding game content to it. I love TO:AoT and still play it on my computer. I saw a few mistakes in content and a lot of bad grammar and started to rearrange the text and tidy up.

As for the Heckler & Koch SMG II / MP2000 mistake, I thought they were the same program. Gun magazines I read during the trial periods made it seem like they were one and the same. Maybe you should expand the entry, as I have never heard of SMG I / SMG II as being distinct programs an there is no mention of MP2000.

Skyfall

The vertical grip is a lot longer in the movie, which made me think it was a magazine. It looks like a prop that was just whipped up. If I recall, doesn't he carry it dissembled in a briefcase? There's no reason it should be this blocky.

Sometimes an entry in a series is good good, it ruins the series because no subsequent entry can compare favorably with it, (Aliens always comes to mind) and I always thought Bond games were victims of Goldeneye 007's success and legacy, but that sounds truly awful. --Funkychinaman (talk) 11:43, 22 January 2013 (EST)

I've put forward my random opinion on the talk page, which is that it is built off of a Remington 700 AICS chassis without the plastic outer stock.

Bioshock Infinite - Kar98k, not 1903

Check out the upper handguard on the sniper rifle in Bioshock: Infinite. Clearly that of a Kar98k, not a Springfield 1903. Additionally, the rear sights match that of the Kar98k. There are no discernible features on the sniper that resemble a 1903, other than the generic-looking buttstock. (Just to mention:) The front sights are enfield-style, which is odd.

So, let's tally things up: Similarities to 1903: Front sling attachment. Similarities to Kar98k: Rear sight, upper handguard. Similarities to Enfield: Front sight. I'd say the Kar98k still wins out. Unless you can provide pictures to support your claim that it is more similar to a 1903A3, I'm gonna have to change it back to the Kar.

Crysis 3

FYI, I have finished screencaping and finalizing the page. Anything else you want to add or change, feel free to do so. - Kenny99 (talk) 21:40, 5 April 2013 (EDT)

Well, to be honest, the Crysis games now, with the exception of the first one, are very disappointing and dissatisfying anyway compared to the Far Cry series, which got even better with Far Cry 3 (although it got monotonous after the game is completed and all of the outposts are captured). Besides, the plot of Crysis 3 is nothing interesting and can be simplified as, "I'm Prophet and I can kill everything!" and a smaller step backwards compared to the older games. Also, I only notified you of the page so you can offer whatever comments you have of the subject based on whatever we know from the older games since there's so much to the game and it makes occasional references to the first game that I might be missing a few things. - Kenny99 (talk) 20:53, 12 April 2013 (EDT)

"GTA 2: The Movie"

I've been wondering about this for a while now but I wasn't sure if the promotion video for Grand Theft Auto 2 could be documented here. In case you didn't know the "GTA 2 Movie" is really an unnamed film released by DMA Design (now known as Rockstar North) and is currently available on Rockstar's site. The reason I am asking is because I am not sure where exactly to put it since GTA 2 doesn't seem to have anything resembling "real" firearms (take a look at the HUD icon for the Pistol and per the rules dose not warrant a page.Mr.Ice (talk) 19:20, 30 April 2013 (EDT)

Blood Dragon

It appears rather unprecedented. I think the closest comparison I can come up with offhand is Command & Conquer: Red Alert, and that ended up spawning its own franchise. Like I said before, I think it should be its own page, as it's a standalone, has an independent plot, looks dramatically different, and FC3 page is already pretty big as is. If Call of Duty: United Offensive has its own page (and I don't think it should), this should certainly qualify. --Funkychinaman (talk) 13:13, 2 May 2013 (EDT)

Oh, absolutely. I actually tried merging it with the Call of Duty page a few months ago like I did the Jagged Edge 2 and Jagged Edge 2: Unfinished Business pages, but it was too much of a pain. I can go either way with Warhead, since it's its own game, but with the same plot and weapons as Crysis. --Funkychinaman (talk) 16:18, 2 May 2013 (EDT)
Zombies needs the actual COD game to run however, and at least when it began, it used the same weapons and levels of the root game. (It's pretty much its own franchise now, they might as well just make the next Treyarch game all zombies.) I didn't know it was only five weapons, however. Then, I suppose, there's no point. --Funkychinaman (talk) 10:46, 3 May 2013 (EDT)

Game screenshots

Hi. I have noticed you have done several video game pages on IMFDB, and was wondering if you could help me out. I recently got rid of my old laptop and built a semi-powerful PC. I have always concentrated my focus on films and television series on IMFDB, but now I have the chance to do video games too. I just don't know what to use when taking shots from video games. There's a couple of games I see here that lack proper screenshots, and since no one else seem to be wanting to finish them off, I might as well give it a shot. I've tried a couple of screenshot programs like Gadwin and Greenshot, but they were not to my liking. I've heard Fraps is good, but my roommate/friend says it's a piece of crap. If you could give a tip or two, I'd be grateful. Thanks in advance, --Warejaws (talk) 08:26, 9 May 2013 (EDT)

Wow, thanks for the swift response. I've used Steam's screencap utility before, usually when I'm playing e.g. Red Orchestra 2 with my friends (The game's pretty glitchy and offers funny screenshots on a daily basis). I think I'm gonna give Fraps a shot, see if it is to my liking. And thanks for the tip on the mouse, I have an older Logitech gaming mouse and I'll definitely be dedicating one of these buttons to taking screenshots. --Warejaws (talk) 07:20, 10 May 2013 (EDT)

That bothered me too. (No one calls it a *Boeing* F-4 Phantom.) I looked at pages like the Steyr TMP/B&T MP9 and Magpul Masada/Bushmaster ACR pages, and at least they have separate sections for both. Unfortunately, it looks like no one bothered to denote the variants, so it'd be hard to do a separate KRISS USA section. --Funkychinaman (talk) 09:47, 19 July 2013 (EDT)

Desert Eagle

I didn't think too much about it, I was just doing maintenance. I would like to see the change made to some pages though, like MP40 or Uzi, to "MP40 submachine gun" or "Uzi submachine gun." That would allow redirects to go directly to the variant. --Funkychinaman (talk) 15:05, 31 July 2013 (EDT)

Re: "Radom" pistol official name

Yes, You're right: name of that pistol should read "wz. 35" - my fault. Polish naming conventions are somehow unclear: sometimes they use full year, sometimes not. For example Polish Tokarev copy full name is "pistolet wojskowy wzór 1933" (military pistol model of 1933), and it's abbreviation "pw wz. 33", but I've seen documents calling it "pw wz. 1933", "pw wz.33" (no space), or "PW wz. 33". It's even more fun with Polish PPS SMG copy, that was often called PM-43 - "PM" is Radom factory designation for indigenous SMG designs, and they never used that name on "pm wz. 43" (USSR designs in Poland had the same names in army and Radom works). And in fact both (pw wz. 33 and pm wz. 43) designations don't comply with Polish naming convention - numbers should indicate year when particular firearm was adopted (1944 in this case).
I'm going then to fix names of other Polish guns which are on IMFDB, if that's not a problem, but I'll leave RADOM (Polish WZ. 35 VIS Pistol) as it is for a while - until me and Commando552 will find if it's name should use caps (like it's on the gun's slide), or not (like in producer's documents). --Chris22lr (talk) 12:47, 13 August 2013 (EDT)

Are you sure that it's better to place the M27 IAR in the assault rifles section in the page Call of Duty: Black Ops II?

And can you check the last topics I wrote for the Bizon-2 with early stock here: Talk:Izhmash PP-19 Bizon and for the Remington 870 MCS here: Talk:Remington Model 870?
And a question: do usual bolt-action rifles with internal magazines or stripper clip (such as Remington 700 and M1903 Springfield) hold 1 extra round in chamber? It seems not, but I just wanna make sure.

Broken links

I'm not in favor in keeping broken links around, especially for video games. Aside from the fact that there isn't actually anyone working on "wanted games" at the moment (as far as I know), without screencaps, there's also no way of verifying if the information is actually true. --Funkychinaman (talk) 09:14, 6 December 2013 (EST)

The idea of poaching caps from other wikis is distasteful, at least without giving them credit. I hate it when people do it to us. And those were two PS1 games and a PS2 game, I think the probability of them getting good pages at this point is low, at best. I actually think the chances of us seeing good pages from console-only games other than from you are remote, giving the expense and time needed. Do you know of any other regular who can get good console caps? --Funkychinaman (talk) 09:44, 6 December 2013 (EST)

Metal Gear Solid 4 and Rising

Your user page claims MGS4 is still on your list, but it's clearly been a while since you uploaded screenshots for that game. Are you still "on the job" or not? It would have been nice if you could have gotten screenshots of character-specific weapons in MGO (such as Raiden with his HK Mk. 23 handgun that he only draws in multiplayer), but that ship is obviously not coming back.

As for Rising, what are you going to do if the PC version is locked to 720p or a lower resolution (as is common for sloppy PC ports of console games)? Konami used to be better than this (just check out my screenshots for Silent Hill 3) but a more recent title of theirs, Silent Hill: Homecoming, was both resolution-locked and crash-prone. I wouldn't be surprised if this was also the case for MGR:R. Come to think of it, it would have been nice if Konami had released a good PC port of MGS4 so people could continue to play MGO2 (and get more updates for it; why are so few weapons from the main game available for MGO2?).

And I was referring to how Sam's sheath operates. It certainly isn't built to completely resemble a blank-cartridge-using captive bolt "pistol" (and I take issue with that term when applied to things like that, but that's another story), but it certainly operates like one in that it projects the shaft of a bolt a short distance from the barrel (albeit to propel a sword forward and not for striking something directly with the bolt shaft). To my knowledge, "semiautomatic" captive bolt pistols using blank cartridges haven't been made in reality, not because it's technically impossible, but because captive bolt pistols using compressed air can provide "semiautomatic" operation without the cost of blank ammunition. I made a similar comparison for the Metro 2033 page when I mentioned how the "Helsing" Crossbow resembles a pepperbox revolver despite not being a firearm.

I'm not one for edit wars, but I would like to respectfully request that the relevant parts I added in (such as bolt shaft of Sam's sheath retracting on its own being similar to that aspect of real captive bolt pistols) be retained in your next edit for that section, as well as the unrealistic aspects of the sheath with regards to swordsmanship. Why is Sam's sheath back in the "Rifle" section despite it not being a firearm (it doesn't even throw a projectile free of the barrel and obviously features no barrel rifling), anyway?

Please look into adding a screenshot from the opening scene in Sam's DLC I mentioned in the last edit as well. Come to think of it, more shots from his DLC campaign would be nice too. --Mazryonh (talk) 20:50, 30 December 2013 (EST)

E-cigs? That sounds like something the various Snakes would scoff at. Anyway, yes, an honest-to-goodness combat-capable katana wouldn't hold up under "HF conversion" because in all likelihood something like that would require a specific material compound with different structural properties than sword-appropriate steel. MG:R handwaves this by claiming the high-frequency process isn't like the "vibroblade" concept of older sci-fi but instead causes vibration on a molecular level that strengthens the material.
You could restart work on MGS4 by first providing screenshots solely for the weapons you haven't provided sufficient screenshots for first, then remaking those that already exist in low definition. Would be easier that way.--Mazryonh (talk) 02:37, 11 January 2014 (EST)

RE: T-101

Well, I have heard claimed 'official' explanations on both sides, though usually it's generally accepted that the 'T' always designates the series, while the 'Model' is what the appearance is meant to be. As for canon distinctions, well, Arnie describes himself as Model 101 in T2. I suppose 'T-101' can be used as a sort of shorthand I suppose, kinda like in T3, when the Terminator says 'T-101'- Though I always saw that as more a dialogue mistake akin to the 'Light Special' line in Magnum Force but it could be seen also as a kind of contraction (though I wouldn't think machines would use contractions or shorthands, but that's another thing). When stating 'T-101' with the other 'T's, it's not only technically incorrect on some level but it just seems hokey and potentially misleading to me. But I get your point as well, and it can be simpler when discussing the other films even if it isn't strictly correct (which is something we do around here, mainly with the firearms but still). Mainly I just like to be as technically accurate as possible (that's kinda something we do around here too, heh). As I suggested, you could interchange just 'Terminator' in those spots, as it's also pretty clear what you mean there as well and it dodges this issue totally. I do like that bit of the film being brought up - I've seen a lot of discussions about that minor point and stuff, it is noteworthy. Anyway, I just wanted to be accurate - If you really want to change it back though, I won't make a big stink about it or anything. StanTheMan (talk) 12:56, 28 December 2014 (EST)

Trust me, as a mostly purist T1 and T2 fan, I too regard T3 as an abomination, when I regard it in the first place, which isn't much. All it really is a retarded retread of T2, and one nobody really asked for I don't think. But again, that's another thing. I still think the 'T-101' line was was an oversight and mistake, and trying to logically explain it away in regards to the other films just leaves one with a headache (among other things, as you should well know), I agree, nothing in there can be reliably referenced in terms of canon, and I try not to think about it. But I also want to be diplomatic and include it since it is there, hence my alternate idea of just using the more-character term 'Terminator' (as no matter what it's pseudo-technically called, there's only been one Terminator, and everything else, no matter where it appeared, has been definitively called something else - "T1000", "T-X", etc) and calling it a day. I certainly don't want your brain further pondering something completely inane on my behalf. StanTheMan (talk) 12:46, 29 December 2014 (EST)

Questions about weapons on a VG page.

Hello, I am not familiar with how this discussion section works but I have seen no other way to contact users.

I had made some questions on the talk page of Crysis 2 on this site, but seeing as it no longer shows up on most recent changes and it doesn't feel like anyone will come by and see it, I instead decided to contact someone on this site in order to ask directly. At first I contacted Kenny99 as it seemed he had done the most work on the Crysis Series. I have not gotten any response though, and it has been a while. Now I have decided to ask you instead, as you seem to do a lot of work on VG pages. I have gotten the feeling the Crysis series isn't very liked here, but I like it and would like to get some answers to my questions, even if you only guess.

Would you mind helping me, by answering my questions, either on the user talk page or the Crysis 2 talk page. I would very much appreciate it. Otherwise please guide me to a user you belive could help me. Z008MJ (talk) 12:48, 6 January 2015 (EST)


I haven't talked with anyone on Imfdb before so I am not really not sure how I respond to your message. There is no reply button either on my talk page or yours so I'm just posting this on yours now. Let me know I should do next time.

My questions can be found on the Crysis 2 talk page here:Talk:Crysis_2

I understand exactly how you feel about it since I used to feel the same, but as the memories of the first Crysis started to fade away I also lost some of my bias against Crysis 2 and decided to give the sequels another chance once and for all and played Crysis 3 this Christmas. While it obviously was not as good as the previous the two, it at least gave some closure to the story and that alone helps the first two games a bit as well.

I recently bought Crysis 2 on the Steam sales and played it again shortly afterwards. I noticed that Crysis 2 had a lot of good aspects that I ignored eariler. Yes, it's no longer on an island, very few vehicles to use, they killed off Nomad just like that and went with a silent main character and there are lot's of more problems. But some things did improve, on the other hand.

Perhaps you wouldn't mind giving your opinion on my thoughts, it would be fun hearing what someone else who is also interested in guns thinks regarding this. I'm not trying to change your opinion, but if you want to know what I think did get better then let me know. Z008MJ (talk) 17:20, 6 January 2015 (EST)


Yeah, that was pretty akward in the third game, I would have liked Rasch to be in more than two scenes or something as well. I'll wait for answers, thanks for helping. Also, were you interested in hearing what parts I do think Crysis 2 made better. Z008MJ (talk) 17:56, 6 January 2015 (EST)


Ok, here is my perspective.

First, a lot of the weapons actually makes sense in the setting, unlike the first Crysis. In the first Crysis there was only one North Korean weapon, the FY-71. For some reason all North Koreans used the same pistol, submachine guns, sniper rifles and so on as the American soldiers did which is not very realistic. Then some of the guns didn't make a lot of sense either, like the 6.8mm Scar that somehow could hold more rounds than a 5.56mm rifle.

In Crysis 2 there was a better variety in guns and they had some thought behind them (In my opinion). Atleast it was much better than the random mess of nonsense guns you see in the yearly CoD.

- The M12 Nova seems to be the next American Service Pistol, which makes sense, as it can easily mount accessories, is in 9mm and the last pistol to recieve a Model designation was the M11.

- The Hammer may seem like just another stupid Desert Eagle replacement, but I don't think that is the case. If you look at the ejected cartridges they are slightly wider, but hardly any longer than the Nova's, I think the .50 Compact is supposed to be something like the .50 GI, which is much more likely in a military pistol than a Magnum cartridge.

- The Grendel is actually a logical succesor to, or atleast a complement to, the M16A4. It is chambered in the intermediate-intermediate 6.8 SPC, therefore holds less rounds per magazine, and keeps the 3-round burst/semi-automatic fire selector of the current M16/M4 family of military rifles.

- The SCAR goes the other way and replaces the 5.56mm with a smaller cartridge in a larger magazine, which is an interesting idea. The SCAR (Rifle) and SCARAB (Carbine) also reflects the M16 Rifle and M4 Carbine.

- The Mk 60 is likely a successor to the Mk 48, while the JAW is a successor to the M136 AT4. Nothing really weird there.

But I think I most of all liked how the USMC you fight together with at several points in the game are portrayed. They felt realistic. They were competent, tough but not too confident. They tried to, and sort of successfully did, organize an evacuation. You don't often see a good, not over-the-top portrayal of the military in a game, but I think Crysis 2 did it great. Maybe you disagree, maybe I'm completely off here, I do not know much about how militaries operates nowadays. But It was a great deal better than most of what is out there, especially in a certain other franchise.

By the way, you may wonder why Crysis 2 and not the third game. Well, I am modding it a bit on my free time right know, mostly for fun, and Crysis 3 is not able to be modded like the first two games. C2 is also twice as long and has a stronger campaign in terms of gameplay in my opinion, and the Alien weapons in C3 are of no interest to me. Therefore I find it more suited for making mods. Z008MJ (talk) 18:18, 6 January 2015 (EST)


Have you looked at my questions yet? I'm not in a rush to have them answered, but I would like to know if I should expect it to take some time? Then I don't have to check back so often. Z008MJ (talk) 19:54, 9 January 2015 (EST)

If you get the time, you can help me with just some of the questions, i'd appreciate getting it answered as soon as you are able. You don't need to put much effort into it, you can just guess if you want to. Anyway, I won't write any more here now, but I'll just let you know that I am waiting and don't need overly detailed answers. I can wait, but I'd rather have it answered before I move on to another game. Z008MJ (talk) 16:37, 15 January 2015 (EST)

Mortars

Though I don't have any mortars (I only have so so mockups made by prop shops) I know that the ATF classifies the Mortars as Destructive Devices. I know of one armorer who took all the hardware and DID put his own thin walled tube just so that it could be de-classified by the ATF and be rented without hassle, so it has happened before. Though I cannot speak for those productions (I could ask Harry Lu about Rambo but not any time soon) it seems that your theory is a sound one, aka, faked Mortars based on the surplused U.S. Hardware. A lot of the ordnance (versus actual firearms) are just fakes. No one uses REAL grenades, ever. I don't know why we even list them since all appearances are of the training models of the various grenades or good mocked up fakes. Same thing with RPGS (for a while, though we do use Real RPG tubes now but fire obviously fake rockets).  :D MoviePropMaster2008 (talk) 20:02, 12 February 2015 (EST)

Some things about Peace Walker

What you mentioned is a symptom of what could be called "Kojima syndrome." This particular symptom manifests itself in how every mainline MGS game from MGS1 to MGS4 was supposed to be "the last Metal Gear (Solid) game." Yes, each time there was supposed to be "no further games in the series." Which does create problems such as "how can Big Boss use the Patriot in future games if he left it at the original owner's grave?". And how can a made-from-scratch Patriot still have the "piece of the Boss" that she left in the original gun?

If you ask me, there are a number of problems with that scene from MGS3 and the one with the Boss just before it. How does Naked Snake know the name of the Patriot if he was never told what it was (which could have been solved if the Boss told him, perhaps in a poetic way)? In any case that scene shows that he did, in fact, inherit the Patriot, which is why I referred to it as an "inherited" weapon.

Next, leaving the Patriot at the Boss' grave only makes sense as a symbolic gesture at the end of a series (which MGS3 didn't turn out to be). The weapon was "appointed" to Big Boss, so why should he abandon it, which would in one way mean abandoning part of the Boss' will? Besides, leaving it at her grave leaves open the possibility of anybody walking by to up and steal a weapon with infinite ammo, which would neither be prudent nor respectful of the Boss' memory. The salute-by-the-grave scene could just as easily gone another way. He could salute the Boss while holding the Patriot (and by extension, his new responsbility) in his other hand, while this time he leaves two bouquets of flowers at her grave: one red, and one white. This would be fitting given the circumstances of the Boss' fate.

And who was Kojima kidding by getting PW rated Teen? The vast majority of weaponry is realistically-modelled (for the last time in the MGS series, sadly), and shoots lethal bullets which cause ingame NPCs to fall down dead, not spitballs or airsoft BBs. Actually, the lack of blood from gunshot wounds in PW is arguably more realistic most of the time (real gunshot wounds normally don't result in the huge blood sprays often seen in video games). It does continue a trend though; MGS has on a whole tried to avoid gore, with a certain scene with the Cyborg Ninja in the Twin Snakes showing someone being cut in half being the furthest the mainsteam MGS series has gotten so far in the gore department.

Given what happened in Ground Zeroes, I bet Big Boss would have loved to have had the Patriot available in that ending scene. Could have made more of a difference there.

--Mazryonh (talk) 12:30, 19 February 2015 (EST)

Actually, not even "Teen", he actually wanted it to be rated "Everyone", and technically was in Japan (CERO, their equivalent of the ESRB rating system, had the game rated as "C", which is their equivalent of the "E" rating). Apparently the West decided it was a bit too graphic for the E rating so they compromised with "T", something Kojima wasn't particularly happy about. You can read up on it here: http://www.siliconera.com/2010/03/03/metal-gear-solid-peace-walker-is-t-kojima-wishes-it-was-e-for-everyone/
Personally, I'm actually quite glad it was only a "T" rating and not an "E" rating considering the pro-Che Guevara bias in the game. It's bad enough that College and High School students are subjected to the lionization of that monster in school by several left-wing professors and teachers who if you ask me have far too much control over impressionable minds. Trying to promote the same lies and propaganda to children as young as first graders via video games is flat out disgusting, really, especially considering that Che Guevara's pretty much one of the reasons why the Cuban Missile Crisis lasted as long as it did (he actually welcomed a nuclear war as he detailed with the London Daily Worker in the aftermath and was disappointed that there weren't millions of deaths in atomic holocaust in the name of liberation). What's even worse about that bit is that they not only talk about the Cuban Missile Crisis frequently in the briefing files, but the main villains actually intended to re-enact that disaster by trying to launch the nuke at Cuba. And besides which, a lot of the Che Guevara talk made several of the characters (especially Big Boss and Kazuhira Miller) extremely out of character by praising such a genocidal nutjob. Especially Big Boss considering he already dealt with a monster who was similar to Che Guevara in behavior: Colonel Volgin in MGS3 (probably the only difference is that Volgin just barely had enough honor to actually allow Snake to fight him one on one in actual combat) and this was a man who he made very clear he hated for his evil nature. As far as Miller, you really think that, with how he was depicted in MG2 and technically MGS (since Liquid's acting had to be pretty good for Solid Snake to be fooled by the imitation), Miller would have been the type to praise such a psychopath, and even ignoring that, he was probably one of the few characters in Peace Walker who actually seems pro-American, or at least likes it far better than his home country of Japan. They should have limited the Che Guevara praise to the FSLN, at least they had an actual reason to praise him due to their undergoing a Socialist revolution. Even though I'm a bit miffed with the character of Cecile Cosima Caminades, one of the few positives about her character is that she was probably the only one of the main protagonists to actually not view Che as a good guy (since the Sartre tape had her saying that "[Sartre] did tend to sympathize with the left" in a tone that indicated that she didn't exactly agree with either Snake or Sartre on the claim that Che was the most complete human being of the century), especially when the only other character to not have much good things to say about Che, Coldman, was pretty obviously a bad guy. Whew, sorry for the Che rant, but this is a really huge issue for me, especially when I learned his true nature with the Politically Incorrect Guide to Vietnam and after I actually was briefly snookered by Peace Walker's claims about him. It's actually about as bad as George Lucas promoting the Vietcong as good guys and strongly implying that he considered America during the Vietnam War to be evil by having the Galactic Empire represent the American forces in Return of the Jedi, even though they were Communists, and besides which there were plenty of other factions he could have used for guerilla warfare during that movie, like the Minutemen, or even the French Resistance during World War II.
And yeah, it's suffered from Kojima syndrome alright. Heck, it basically retconned a whole lot (then again, this is Metal Gear and Kojima, which probably has done far more retcons than even George Lucas could ever hope to do with Star Wars), including Miller's backstory and heritage, Huey's legs, and, heck, even EVA's backstory of Big Boss and the Patriots' split. Heck, Ground Zeroes had an offhand mention of the Sandinistas being "Soviet bloc" despite the fact that Amanda's Unit explicitly rebelled against the Soviets, especially their handler Vladimir Zadornov, meaning they aren't even Soviet bloc now. I think Peace Walker is the only game he pretty much avoided stating would be his last game (MGS is in the gray area as while Kojima DID mention it was his last game, he also said he specifically named the president Solidus specifically for a sequel in mind in a later twitter post). Pokeria1 (talk) 13:00, 19 February 2015 (EST)

I can now confirm that the JP version of Peace Walker was marketed to kids. Just look at this Japanese commercial for the game. Apparently even schoolchildren will have fun with Militaires Sans Frontieres. At least Kojima brought back the "horrors of war" theme for MGS5. --Mazryonh (talk) 19:39, 19 February 2015 (EST)

Yes, and he basically idiotically poisoned the minds of countless Japanese children with the lies about Che Guevara being a good guy, especially when the London Daily Worker interview wasn't even hard to find. Heck, you can even find his little UN speech from 1964 easily on Youtube. Yet he didn't even attempt to show those darker elements of Che's character in the game.

I avoided butting in before but I'll say here and now that I'm with FCM - I can't believe how long that went on for and I'm surprised you put up with him and especially that piss-poor attitude that long. We aren't wikipedia; we operate with our own set of rules and established standards - One of which is 'nothing overrides visual evidence' - Don't really see the ambiguity or confusion there (I think that's in the Style guide, but still). Granted it's happened elsewhere but the VG pages especially seem to attract real hard-heads who get hung up on little shit like this. Bah. StanTheMan (talk) 18:57, 7 May 2015 (EDT)

I want this guy to know other members - who don't even have any stake in his stupid issue - don't appreciate his manner.

Assassin's Creed Black Flag

You undid my undoing of the unnecessary edit on the Black Flag page. May I ask why? Because the weapon in question is not a blunderbuss and the weapon in the game does not match the image reference nor the description of a blunderbuss. The screenshots from the game don't even seem to depict the same weapon, none which match the provided real weapon image. A closer match would be:

http://www.sportsmansguide.com/product/index/lmtd-18th-century-flared-mouth-flintlock-pistol-replica-with-gray-ornate-handle-butt-and-barrel?a=653971

So yeah, I think my edit was warranted, because the edit was not adding accurate information and the in-game screenshots are still sub-par for comparison purposes since they depict multiple firearms. Does the user making the edit even own the game? Because in my experience, the Assassins Creed games usually contains encyclopaedic information about the items within it and there is likely to be a detailed entry about the exact gun it's based on, or at the very least it's features (Which would aid identification).

An odd case of the "remove black bars from screenshots" policy around here

I noticed you protected my page on Silent Hill 4 recently, so I'd like to ask you about something regarding the screenshots I supplied there. Another user recently uploaded newer version of my cutscene screenshots (specifically those dealing with the character of Richard Braintree) from that game, but I believe that kind of edit was problematic for the following reasons:

  • The black bars of those screenshots contain subtitles of dialogue from the game. One of them has had dialogue cut off along with the black bars. I believe that English subtitles help to make screenshots more informative.
  • Silent Hill 4 was originally designed to display on 4:3 monitors. I believe preserving the original aspect ratio of the material is important to showing just what the media in question looks like, or else we would be cropping out old 4:3 images to meet the newer 16:9 standard.

I don't want to start an "edit war" by simply reverting the edited screenshots back to their original forms, so I'd like a moderator's opinion on this. If this question would be better addressed in the forum, then please tell me.

By the way, I don't suppose you could make a newer version of your "Evolution of Fictional Guns" image showing exactly which titles/series the fictional guns come from? I don't recognize the one on the bottom of that image. --Mazryonh (talk) 22:42, 21 November 2015 (EST)

I add better screenshots. Directly from the game. In my opinion they are much better than signatures screenshots of scenes. Instead of deleting my screenshots you would add captions to them.

Template Help

I'm trying to change the Walking Dead template and I'm having an issue.

Template:Walking Dead

As you can see, I'm trying to give the Telltale Games series its own sub-category (since the Michonne miniseries is due out this month and Season 3 is also forthcoming at some point), but I can't figure out how to get the main video game category to scoot to the left beneath the television category. I've tried copying the television category code and changing "Television" to "Video Games", but that isn't working, and I've even studied the code on other similarly setup templates and tried copying from there, but still can't get it to work. It's almost certainly something obvious that I'm doing wrong, but I can't for the life of me figure it out. Spartan198 (talk) 00:48, 9 February 2016 (EST)

Journalist Seeking Input

Hi there! Sorry to bother you out of the blue. I'm a journalist covering games and technology, and I'm currently working on a piece about firearms in games. Specifically, the piece is about games with realistic real-world weapons versus games with fanciful Halo-style sci-fi weapons. A focal point will be the Call of Duty franchise, which has shifted from real historical settings to plausible near-future scenarios to more distant future scenarios. I'm reaching out to several in the IMFDB community who have made contributions to CoD pages to see if they'd be available to answer some questions--via phone, Skype or email--about their take on the franchise, and their general take on authenticity of firearms in games. I was particularly interested in getting your input, because the sequence of images on your user page definitely gets at what I'm trying to explore in this article. Would you be willing to participate? I'd be glad to maintain your pseudonymity, or come up with an alternate name or handle so you'd be anonymous, or use your actual name. You could make the call on that. If you're up for participating, you can reply here or let me know on my Talk page or feel free to email me at: chrisbaker1337 at gmail dot com Thanks so much!

Would still love to chat for article

Hi! I'd definitely still love to chat if you're up for it. Either via email or skype/phone. I'm chrisbaker1337 at gmail. Thanks!

Stealth edits

For the record, I often use slightly bigger thumbnails for rifles and other long shoulder arms since they often look a tad small otherwise. But they were almost all 450px, hardly what could be called 'random'. I think the deal here is that several of the gun images used on that page are quite small - I didn't realize that until afterward, but I let the edits stand anyway; when the actual image is ~380px whether a thumbnail is 400 or 450 is rather irrelevant. Now I reverted but in the spirit of respecting your concern I left the thumbnail sizes alone, save for the pistols since it's been stated they are preferred set at 300px. The other edits are compliant with site norms (using the template code, dividing longer sections and eliminating long redirects), there's no reason to do away with them. StanTheMan (talk) 14:47, 6 June 2016 (EDT)

"I still don't see why we're sticking mounted machine guns with handheld ones"
Because that's how it's done on just about every other page? Just trying to be uniform with the rest of the site. Machine Guns go with Machine Guns, pretty much end of there. 'Mounted Weaponry' (which is an atypical section name - I renamed it to 'Other' because that is typical) is as I understand mainly for weapons that don't fit into the other regular/typical categories but are listed on the site (autocannons, etc)
"using unnecessary rank shorthands"
That too is done on other pages, though admittedly it's optional. Either/or.
"saying a DMR is a sniper rifle"
Without being pedantic, I believe that they are considered the same for the purposes of basic categorization. Same reason why SMG sections have guns that are also called machine pistols and 'PDWs', and so on. That said, 'DMR' is not a typical section/category name and thus not with the style of the overwhelming majority of the rest of the site. We have a 'sniper rifle' gun category, but no DMR category, hence 'sniper rifle' sections not 'DMR' ones. Given many who look at it won't know the difference (or care) 'sniper rifle' is again more general, inclusive and simpler.
"weirding around with the section divisions" When a section gets above ten or so guns it's usually a good idea to divide them further if possible, I'm sure this was discussed somewhere (it's the reason behind why some pages use separate sections for semiautos and revolvers while others just have 'handguns'). Hence why having separate 'assault rifles' and 'rifles' (AKA Battle rifles) categories. That said, if you're not gonna go that way, then at least the section could just be called 'Rifles', again, to be simpler.
"Also, Heckler & Koch use "HK" as a shorthand themselves." Forgot about that. Either/or there as well.


Now I won't touch the page again until there's some understanding or what-have-you but all told, there is reasoning and a degree of precedent behind most of my edits, edits which I've done throughout the site without issue before. I don't really see much the issue now. StanTheMan (talk) 02:27, 7 June 2016 (EDT)
I still prefer to keep things condensed and as simple as possible most of the time, other admins have made notes about avoiding over-complicating things on the site. A 'DMR' classification seems a bit much; as stated we're not a gun encyclopedia - We again don't have a specific 'DMR' category for gun pages. Should we get one that'd be another thing but ultimately I don't feel we need to be quite so specific for category headings on media pages (typically, anyway). I also still disagree with the machine guns - again, that's just not common to the rest of the site as I know. IIRC, the other pages that have 'mounted weapon' categories that include machine guns have them there because there's only one or two and because they are the only ones; there are no non-mounted machine guns for that piece of media. Finally, I again still believe having 'assault rifles & battle rifles' combined seems a bit exhaustive and bloated, especially when the section has such a large number of guns that, in terms of lookup/reference, would be better served by being split up further.

Again, I think these are all perfectly valid points. THAT SAID, your points, though I mainly disagree, are fair enough. All-told, I don't care to keep going back and forth - I still don't see what the big deal is here but I'll make it not one and drop the matter for this particular page, at least for the time being.

Call of Juarez

Well, the reason why I put the mention that the events are up to the player's interpretation, is I actually know Haris Orkin, the story writer for the game, and have interviewed him which gave the Call of Juarez Wiki expansion on the lore of the series (Hence why the original's game's date is given as 1884.) (Other minor details (not mentioned on IMFDB) were through various other sources (Polish websites that have since been shut-down or radically altered).

MGs

Yow m8, just saw your edit on the MW3 page. Seems weird how those full-size round machine guns are being commonly referred to as LMGs (hell, even the Modern Firearms page lists the M60E3 as a light machine gun, and I've seen the M60E4/Mk 43 sometimes being referred to as such). Pretty obvious that it's incorrect how the MG34 are MG42 are called "LMG"s in the CoD3 bonus materials; I suppose that the same goes for that "Gorgon" abomination in BO3. But regarding the other ones (M240B/HK21E/MK 48 Mod 1 in their respective CoD games, as well as Bad Company 2's PKM that has a changeable barrel), is it also incorrect how they are classed as LMGs? --Ultimate94ninja (talk) 16:40, 27 February 2017 (EST)

Land mines

Hey Tim, I thought I'd ask you about this. In this sequence from Bad Boys II, are the land mines fictional or not?

Thing is they're not even mentioned in the Bad Boys II page. --Ultimate94ninja (talk) 14:49, 28 June 2017 (EDT)

Thanks. Dunno if these mines could deserve a mention on the respective pages due to actually being used as a prop in at least one movie, for example to describe how implausible they are (I know they were previously removed from the CoD pages though). I'll let you decide. --Ultimate94ninja (talk) 06:43, 2 July 2017 (EDT)

Bloodhound

Oi, I missed that part about the slide on semi-auto revolvers. For the record, I'm the one who previously added the fact about the hammer always cocked (only possible on pistols, etc.), so should it be fine the way it's currently described on the page? --Ultimate94ninja (talk) 12:45, 26 August 2017 (EDT)

Actually, after watching a clearer gameplay video on YouTube, I noticed that the hammer self-cocks (it doesn't always remain cocked as the page used to imply). I now made a bit of changes on the page to reflect that anyway. --Ultimate94ninja (talk) 03:49, 3 September 2017 (EDT)

Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops article revival

I've just spent a lot of time making this article without even knowing it had been created and deleted beforehand. I agree with the previous user that this article needs to exist as there are a lot of weapons which can be identifiable (good screenshots are hard to make or come across though) but the weapons are real and, Peace Walker or not, I believe this game deserves a mention. Please feel free to modify or delete it, but I vote in favor of keeping it. --Ssantusky (talk) 17:13, 3 October 2017 (EDT)

Thanks for reviving it. On the subject of Portable Ops, however, that game was actually included in various official materials and timelines (for example, it was included on the Metal Gear Sagas DVD released around the time of MGS4 in regards to the ending timeline and even in the ending footage, plus the timeline released during the development of Peace Walker, and what do you know, it was also listed among several mainline Metal Gear titles as late as The Phantom Pain. If that's not enough, then, aside from Peace Walker explicitly referencing San Hieronymo at one point, Metal Gear Solid 4 also included in the montages of Ocelot, EVA, and even Big Boss's speeches to Snake screencaps from Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops as well, and EVA even indirectly referenced Gene's revelation that The Boss was set up. Oh, and during Naomi's talk with Snake in Act 2, they briefly showed a timeline of Metal Gear games, and Portable Ops was shown on there. Heck, the entire story for MGS4 was a direct result of Portable Ops, as even Hideo Kojima admitted. Pokeria1 (talk) 08:12, 4 October 2017 (EDT)

As far as I know, the mode of operation of LPO (and heavy flamethrower TPO-50) isn't inspired by Einstossflammenwerfer 46 but followes Soviet war-time FOG-1 and FOG-2 static defensive flamethrowers, called "fougasse flamethrower" in Soviet Army. Wehrmacht copied the design of FOG-1 as Abwehrflammenwerfer 42. I don't dare to edit LPO-50 page myself, so I write you. Thanks. Greg-Z (talk) 13:41, 2 December 2017 (EST)

A problem with image abuse

I got the following abuse from Carbinesfrcollector.com on my email:

"Reine Smith<[email protected]>

You need to remove the picture of the Llama as it is a copyrighted image from carbinesforcollectors.com I will file suit if you do not.and have your site removed.

RK Smith Carbinesfrcollector.com"

I guess that the source of the problem image is this page: Llamapage. Llama XVIII image looks the same as on their site but maybe some other images are also taken from Carbinesfrcollector. My English isn't good enough to discuss the problem. What should we do?

I also made a topic on Admin forum.

Homefront video game page

Any chance we can get it unlocked? It's been over six years since its release, so I doubt it's under any real threat of vandalism anymore. Spartan198 (talk) 20:24, 16 December 2017 (EST)

Well, one of the M16 screencaps from the game's intro has M16A1s rather than M16A4s under which its categorized and I was going to separate them, add a short description of why the SR-25 isn't an M110, and fix a few spelling and grammar errors here and there. Plus, I think the page title should be extended to Homefront (2011 VG). Spartan198 (talk) 10:20, 17 December 2017 (EST)

RE: Good work there

Peace, mate! --Ultimate94ninja (talk) 09:03, 26 December 2017 (EST)

Weird... good to see it was fixed anyway. While you're at it, we could also benefit from getting rid of my previous space-taking revisions of these images: 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. --10:33, 26 December 2017 (EST)

old screenshots of Black Lagoon

Sorry, if I did something wrong. But, maybe the old screenshots may be usefull, untill the rebuilding the page(s) still not complite. For example, Maybe, the another similar examples also present. When the all page(s) will be complite, old screenshots maybe easely deleted. Pyramid Silent (talk) 06:34, 30 December 2017 (EST)

Hey Pyramid. I uploaded 1080p screenshots for Black Lagoon, so I purposely removed it so that it can be done permanently. If there's something not covered in the Second Barrage page, leave a note in the discussion page. Ominae (talk) 08:27, 30 December 2017 (EST)

RE: 50 Beowulf

Yeah, on both Future Weapons and Ultimate Weapons it was semi-auto only. However, I just came up with this video, and apprently it has a three-position selector switch? (I'll be busy in a while so I didn't watch the whole video to confirm whether it's only semi-auto or not :P) --Ultimate94ninja (talk) 12:35, 30 December 2017 (EST)

Question

Check this out. Should we say that it's depicted a bit like a magazine-fed weapon, or is that brass catcher-like thing covering the belt supposed to be a workaround or something? --Ultimate94ninja (talk) 18:21, 15 January 2018 (EST)

Thanks. Would've also surprised me if such a thing could be able to pull the belt.--Ultimate94ninja (talk) 18:31, 15 January 2018 (EST)
Btw regarding this, we need to mention thay the playable character should have put more work in pulling the belt into action, eh? (The animators would't want to include that much of a procedure, but still) --Ultimate94ninja (talk) 18:43, 15 January 2018 (EST)
Having watched a slow-mo BF1 video, I can tell you that the belt moves to the right by a one-round increment then returns back to the left xD --Ultimate94ninja (talk) 11:39, 16 January 2018 (EST)

video

Damn kids, with their VoD and streaming... But seriously, we go by the DVD/Blu-Ray release date, not the streaming release date. --Funkychinaman (talk) 11:14, 16 January 2018 (EST)

M6A3 rocket

What is your source for the M6A3 having a copper liner? I've never seen anything about that, to my knowledge the M6 series of rockets never used copper. The M6A5 might have, but the only source I have for that, OP 1720, is too poor quality to be sure. OS 9-69 says nothing about the liner. The official history of the Ordinance Department in WW2 mentions copper was better than steel the next sentence after talking about the M6A3, but does not actually state definitively. OP 1664 also does not indicate any difference between the cone material of the A1 and A3.

Yeah, I got obsessed with this a few months back. Did you learn to hate the phrase "will penetrate any know tank" and variants thereof as much as I did?--Mandolin (talk) 14:59, 17 January 2018 (EST)

Thanks. I'm not sure those sources are actually valid. They aren't primary sources and cite no official manuals or reports. Inert Ord is good, but I've had to correct him a few times. The book is also in error, as all sources I can find says 4 inches penetration. The Bazooka page also fails to cite any source that states penetration at all. Finally, THIS report on EOD states that the M6A3 will penetrate 3.5-4 inches armor and has a steel cone.--Mandolin (talk) 15:28, 17 January 2018 (EST)
You may have a point on the M7A2, but the report on M6A3 construction matches everything else available. I'd write the M7A2 off as a typo personally. The redesigned ogive is stated in several document to be the source of improved penetration, copper is only mentioned by the Ordinance history.--Mandolin (talk) 15:48, 17 January 2018 (EST)
OS 9-69 attributes the better penetration to "With the hemispherical ogive, the fuze of the rocket has been found to function in an average of 875 microseconds compared to an average of 1250 microseconds in the M6A1 with a conical ogive. Penetration has been uniformly improved". So the fuse is working 1/3rd faster. Really wish there was another source other than the Ordinance history for copper.--Mandolin (talk) 23:21, 18 January 2018 (EST)
Its a Ordinance document that was itself classified, copper being secret would not have mattered. Also, the M9A1 rifle grenade penetrate 100mm of armor with a steel liner and the same ogive design, so the M6A3 should be able to do the same.--Mandolin (talk) 16:24, 19 January 2018 (EST)
Yeah, that works. --Mandolin (talk) 08:33, 20 January 2018 (EST)

RE: MAHEM

Eh, I try to avoid sounding too critical, but maybe it's just a bit of a personal preference. Still, the whole concept is rather odd- it almost seems like they started out doing research and thinking hard about the concept, then just sort of gave up and did whatever. Then again, that'd hardly be the least thought-out thing in AW... Pyr0m4n14c (talk) 09:48, 21 January 2018 (EST)
