Now, HAPPY EDITING! bunni (talk) 19:52, 21 April 2015 (EDT)


When uploading files, could you please not use the default Steam filenames? There's a chance that if multiple users upload files with default names on the same day they might end up overwriting each other's. Changing it to something like "PayDay2-(weapon name)-(number).jpg" works better and it's what we prefer. Evil Tim (talk) 07:57, 10 May 2015 (EDT)

Got it, thanks for the heads up --Shiro Okami (talk) 08:07, 10 May 2015 (EDT)

About your edits to the Payday 2 page.

Now, i don't want to come across as a rude ass, but the edits you did to the UMP are entirely unnecessary. There's is no need to add a whole new batch of screenshots showing the gun being reloaded in that USC config because it's the same gun, neither is there any reason to point out the same facts twice in the entry, once in the description or on a pic is enough.

I've worked on the PD2 page for dozens of hours clearing up and removing useless screenshots showing the same thing over and over again in subsections that make it seem like modifying the weapon with "X" turns it into an entirely new weapon. If you're gonna add a new screenshot showing the weapon in a specific config, then only add one (potentially two) screenshots showing the weapon, adding new screens of the gun being reloaded is just a waste of space.

I hope you understood what im saying here as it will lead to less headaches for the both of us in further edits.--AnActualAK47 (talk) 06:42, 23 October 2016 (EDT)

Can you help a fellow heister?

I was wondering if you could help me with some weapon related achs in PD2. Mainly i need to get the ones for the FAL and "The turtle always wins" one.--AnActualAK47 (talk) 10:30, 11 November 2016 (EST)

Well to be honest I lucked out when I attempted those achievements and found a decent enough crew. I never got "The Turtle Always Wins" and have all but given up on trying because most players would either quit or kick me when they see me decking out in the ICTV. Stealth is just not my cup of tea, y'know :(( Shiro Okami (talk) 10:15, 12 November 2016 (EST)
I hear ya'. I'm terrible at stealth to. Although i could do with some help with that "For Daisy" ach.--AnActualAK47 (talk) 13:39, 16 November 2016 (EST)

The PD M203

Having a separate entry for the launcher is rather unnecessary. Since it isn't an attachment but a part of the HK417, it's a better idea to have both in the same entry.--AnActualAK47 (talk) 12:29, 16 December 2016 (EST)

Good move. I wasn't sure where to put that so I made an entry under "Launchers" just to be safe since, you know, it is one. Shiro Okami (talk) 12:47, 16 December 2016 (EST)
I would say that if the launcher is an optional attachment (such as in CoD) or a separate weapon (as in BF3/4) it deserves its own entry, but here the merge is better.--AnActualAK47 (talk) 13:04, 16 December 2016 (EST)

PD2 Taran tactical rifle

Hey, i was thinking that maybe it would more appropriate to put the Taran rifle entry under assault rifles as the rifle is more of a weird AR/battle rifle mix rather than an actual sniper rifle. Similar to how the K23B and AKMSU entires are in the AR catogory rather than sub guns (because they aren't actually subguns)--AnActualAK47 (talk) 04:53, 10 February 2017 (EST)

Done and done Shiro Okami (talk) 05:33, 10 February 2017 (EST)
Nice.--AnActualAK47 (talk) 06:08, 10 February 2017 (EST)

Info on SPAS 12

Were you the one who updated the SPAS 12 page with the wording that the SPAS 12 would not cycle blanks? Just curious. Thanks MPM2008

I don't recall wording it as such, though. My original edit was to state that the SPAS 12 has unreliable gas operation that makes cycling underpowered loads difficult, but another editor changed that into hot blanks, I believe. Shiro Okami (talk) 21:34, 24 June 2018 (EDT)
Thanks. I'm trying to figure out WHO did that edit. They seem to speak decisively as if they have first hand knowledge. I know that YES, indeed there are blank adapted SPAS-12 shotguns in the movie industry. I can show you the BFAs inside the barrels. But most films use it in pump mode because it's more reliable. I didn't like the wording that it was 'impossible' to blank adapt the SPAS-12 since I'm looking at a SPAS-12 adapted for semi auto fire with blanks right now. Thanks for the reply. If it's a fellow movie armorer, I'd probably be surprised. :D best regards. MoviePropMaster2008 (talk) 05:14, 25 June 2018 (EDT)

Screenshot order on RE3

I appreciate the help on the RE3 page, even if our screenshots being different levels of brightness kind of irks me. But one thing I wanted to discuss how the page is organized. For gun listings, I always go alphabetical/numerical order within individual sections (Baikel, Beretta, Browning, Desert Eagle, so on). And for screenshots, I usually put things in chronological order (e.g., Mikhail on the subway with his pistol before Nicholai in NEST 2 with his pistol) and organize them cutscene first, gameplay second, and inventory third. You can see my standardized layout in its finished form on the Days Gone page. Is that organization standard okay with you or do you think a different one would be better? I also think it would be better to replace the gameplay images of Carlos using the Samurai Edge with Jill in her STARS outfit using it. What do you think? Spartan198 (talk) 01:27, 10 April 2020 (EDT)

I suppose the concern I have is that inventory previews should be placed ahead of gameplay screenshots, since that gives you a very big and clear gun model to compare with the real-life photo(s) immediately above them. Cutscene shots should ideally come last, since they ironically provide the least amount of visual clarity compared to the other two types due to lighting and angles of the picture. I wasn't even sure if we had some kind of "standard" in place, so I just went with how a vast majority of other pages organized their screenshots, which I found to be quite logical. As for the differences in brightness level, I was planning on replacing them anyway, since I took those with my gamma turned way up to compensate for sun glare, which I didn't notice until it was nighttime, and if you believe it would be more appropriate for Jill to hold the Samurai Edge, I'm game. Shiro Okami (talk) 01:52, 10 April 2020 (EDT)
There isn't any agreed upon site-wide standard, that's just the standard I've applied to myself as I think it's the most aesthetically pleasing. Different editors here do it different ways, such as gun listings going by prominence rather than alphabetized or not using gun type headings (e.g., Pistols, Revolvers, Shotguns, etc.) at all. It's generally up to the person building the page. But you make a good argument for inventory screens to go first, so I have no complaints about doing it that way. Since we're both contributing heavily to it, I just wanted to get us on the same page and avoid conflicted editing. Spartan198 (talk) 12:22, 10 April 2020 (EDT)
Don't sweat it, I'm glad we've managed to sort it out. Also, I've replaced many of the over-bright screenshots with proper ones, and gave Jill the Samurai Edge. I think I still have the Desert Eagle left, though. As for the gun listing, I agree fully with you on the alphabetical order. Shiro Okami (talk) 12:25, 10 April 2020 (EDT)

R700 VTR

That looks like the Magpul stock, fwiw.--AgentGumby (talk) 13:33, 30 June 2020 (EDT)

Ah, now that you've mentioned it. It does look more like that one than the VTR. Shiro Okami (talk) 14:25, 30 June 2020 (EDT)
