  • Hello Drahnian. Just saw how you placed the appearance section on the Amethyst Chip page. You also moved stuff outside the XC2/TTGC tabs, was that intentional or a mistake while editing the trove location? Given that both XC2 and TTGC have their separate sources in terms of both enemy drops, treasure troves and quests, and there are source types that exist in one but not the other, wouldn't it make more sense to keep them separated? Just asking because of that script I've been working on, need to make sure I got the proper template before I start using it.

    • Hi Drahnian. Need feedback on something real quick. Does the way I'm presenting Field Skill requirements look okay like this? Axion Chip. Any suggestions on how to improve it?

    • I think it looks perfect, and love how you've implemented the Field Skills!

  • Hi Drahnian. Just to inform that I have removed Kino and Nene categories for now because we are not fully sure that these will be their localised names in the English version.

    • Sounds wise! Will it not be easier to change the category if the names change than trawl through the images to find all instances released pre-localisation, though? (I'd rather we don't have what we have with XCX/XC2 images, which is lots only categorised under screenshots/art but no character/location tags)

  • Hi Drahnian, do you plan to add soon a page for the NPC Sulala currently "Wanted Page"/redlink?

  • I saw that there were a lot of unused videos and I don't know what we should do with them. So, what do you think we should do?

    • !!!

      You are opening my eyes to this... I think it varies by video - I notice there are a bunch of XC1 H2H clips, which would be good on their respective pages, however given that they are just youtube links I'm not certain of the merit of that over just linking to the youtube page itself. Guides on how to get to areas I'd say the same of.

      Official videos, eg trailers and maybe those WEIRD clips of Fiora as an actress for a TV ad, want to be on relevent pages. 

      Duplicate videos, or videos in Japanese that we already have in English, want to be in category "candidates for deletion". Music videos without associated pages and general gameplay clips can go here too.

      I'm not sure what to do about fan-made clips; I'd say they should be deleted if they are unused anywhere. We have quite a lot of userspace/forum images that are unused that I'm clearing out currently and imo these are the same.

      Something you may want to do is ask WA his opinion - he's a bit more stringent than I am and may reckon they can mostly be deleted, which I wouldn't be opposed to.

      Go ahead and put any you think have no worth in Candidates for Deletion, though, as they'll be checked by one of us specifically before deletion.

    • I asked him, and he said we should keep the ones from Nintendo, Monolith Soft, and the games' composers. Everything else should be deleted.

  • Hi Drahnian. I think we should not add a Gallery for XC2 on the Human page, because this is a dedicated page (for now) for a defined race of XCX, knowing all other related pages like Human-Made Skell, etc. it is a bit confusing... I also think that the XC2 section on the page should not be kept, but for now, it is just a mention, so it is less problematic than the Gallery. It is still an open discussion the "Human" term consideration about several races of XC2 because, contrary to XCX, it is not an effective race in-game, nor anything else well defined, just a mention in the end of the game. If there is later an agreement to build something for a "Human" term consideration for XC2, we may do something depending on proposals and a community decision, probably a section on the plot page or a dedicated page for XC2, or any suitable idea, a discussion amongst the community may be useful. What do you think?

    • I wonder if it's worth forum'ing... our current response rate is pretty low. Might wait until closer to DE release when interest picks up.

      I think we're having a language problem here - I double checked and there are definitely lowercase Humans in the English XCX (again without a full script can't confirm all instances, but):

      "Their weapons were terrifying and powerful beyond human reckoning." (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=luTV6fUubdI)

      "I was indeed fearful of humanity, of your threat".. "You- You miserable humans!"

      (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i0Sp5DHetbU)

      (could you give me an example of the difference between the words in French? /check if any difference exists in Japanese, if easily done?) 

      I feel like humans in XC2 are defined well enough to encompass all of the main nationalities bar Nopon (group of humanoid subraces living on Alrest, derived from Klaus' humanity), but that is obviously a different use of the word human to XCX (group of humans from Earth, not evolved into sub-races, living on Mira) which currently have no canonical connection to one another. I feel this merits two pages similarly to Telethia (XC1) / Telethia (XCX).

    • I think you are right. I do not know why I retain "Human" with uppercase in XCX when it is used to qualify the race regarding Nopon, Prone, Definian, Manon, Wrothian, Orphean, etc. And as you show, humans in XC2 seems indeed defined well enough. I do not remember well, but in French in general, the noun of a civilisation, "race", nation, etc. uppercase for the noun, lowercase for the adjective. After viewing the Nopon (XCX) page history coupling with this thread, I think we can leave those pages as they are for now.

  • Not sure if you noticed but I've been busy adding photos of the XC1 party members' Talent Arts to the 'In battle' sections of their articles. Had to replace Reyn's with a more HD one I found on Spriters' Resource, but it was worth it. What do you think? Also, are there any uncategorized articles left?

      Loading editor
    • Hi! I think they look very good (In Battle section is more appropriate than main gallery indeed!) - thanks for thinking of that! 

      I believe we're all good on uncategorized articles (although if you want a horror task, going through the "XC2 Screenshots" category and recategorizing everything correctly does need doing :o ). If you ever want to check that - and other cool data stuff - you can use Special:SpecialPages.

    • Thanks! Also, should we add important story quotes to the 'Quotes' section?

        Loading editor
    • Haha, that one's more contentious. I personally hate the quote sections but seem to be in the minority (we've had several forum discussions, if I recall!) so... if you like? I'd say only add quotes that show real meaning and elaborate on the character rather than just quoting important scenes (also avoid quotes like "aaaaah!" Etc that are meaningless without context). A lot of characters have spevific quote pages linked to in that section, too, which you're welcome to go WILD on.

  • Hello Drahnian,

    Since I'm still working on adding enemy stats to a whole lot of pages, I probably won't get to this for a while but I could also take a break from enemy stats and do this as well. Anyways, I see that you've added some pictures to the wiki. I want to also add some pictures to the wiki for the pages that need an image but I don't know where to look to see what images currently exist. Is there a location on this wiki that I could look at to see all the images that currently exist? I don't want to take a screenshot in my game and post it to the wiki, only to then find out that the image that I've taken (like an image of an enemy) already exists on here.

    • Sounds good. So far, I've got around 8 screenshots of NPCs. I've still got about 22 more quests to complete before I upload all of the images I have. At the moment, I have around 45 screenshots (8 NPC and the rest enemies) and I'll have more once I complete the other 22 quests. I want to upload all of the images in one fell swoop so I only have to take my microSD card out of my switch once. Soon, I'll have a cruise ship load of screenshots being uploaded (8 at a time of course since I can only bulk add 8 at a time), then I'll have a cruise ship load of pages to edit the images into (and I'll be posting stats while I'm at it).

  • I've already included the enemy stats for several enemies (the ones with one version of them) but there are some enemies who has 2 versions, a regular version and a challenge mode version. Due to the two, very distinct (in terms of stats) versions, I'm choosing not to enter their stats because I don't know which stats to put in, their regular stats or their challenge battle stats. I got the stats, I just don't know which one to put in. Got any suggestions?

    • With Ghost Elma, I was able to figure out the hits because their entire arts table is identical to Elma's arts table. That's why I was able to get the hits. Without that, there's no other way I would be able to figure out the hits since my source doesn't list what the hits and range are.

  • Hi Drahnian, I am just giving you a tip, when you rename/move images, you have an option to deselect the redirection (by default a redirect is made, we can deselect this option). This will automatically delete the previous file name and avoid an additional redirection file.

  • They're great pictures, but you don't unlock that green & white armor on rex until Chapter 8 and the earliest you can reach the Airborne Throne is Chapter 6.

    So they should probably be hidden behind a spoiler tag, re-taken, or removed.

    Other than that armor, I see no issue with your photos.

    Spoilers are the main reason I went around on only Nia since you get her at the start of Chapter 2.

    • Hm, good point. Seeing as we've stopped using spoiler tags like that on the wiki, I'll retake & replace them. Thanks for catching that.
