With the release of Red Faction, what developers call "GEO-MOD Technology," revolutionized FPS games as we know it. The ability to blow up buildings or even tunnel underground with the simple shooting of a rocket launcher or the detonation of a remote charge, or even the tossing of a grenade, drove FPS gamers wild!

The "blowing up of a wall" consisted of random demolition of geometry, but as we see things popping up about Red Faction : Guerrilla, we see that with the ongoing developing of gaming and technology, the physics of buildings and how the game handles GEO-MOD Technology is greater than before! The Development team has limited any form of "lag" regarding GEO-MOD Technology and really brought us an amazing game.


Rendering

not that I even pretend that my iPhone is acid2 compliant, but the buttons are squashed down into the main text

I haven't noticed this on other mediawiki installations. Ill run a XML and CSS test, but I don't think that we are compliant. Mike 19:13, 10 July 2009 (UTC)

Compliance

Do you mean the page/discussion/edit/history/etc buttons? I remember seeing them shoved down on something or some browser... but I can't remember what. Administrator 03:38, 11 July 2009 (UTC)


yes as a matter of fact, thats exactly what im reffering to Mike 17:09, 13 July 2009 (UTC)

Category Links

I noticed that you're using external links on the Main Page's header, to link to categories... There's actually a hidden trick that allows you to use internal links without adding the page to the category.

[[:Category:Red Faction]] -> Category:Red Faction

Prefixing the Category namespace with a colon (:) forces the link to act as, well, a link. DavidJCobb 18:45, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

@DavidJCobb - Thanks for the tip. Done. ;) Goober 19:01, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

Update

All the pages need to be updated so they acknowledge that RFG has been released. I fixed up some of them but there are still some out there.

Someone also needs to change the Main Page, as it says that the new DLC will be available for 9.99 on the XBL marketplace, which is impossible. 800 points=$12.50 if you have zero points.

Completion

Has anybody here besides me actually completed the game? All of the pages refer to "six" sectors even though there are seven. An entire page for Mount Vogel was missing (which I created).UNIQb36f4e5c97b804b6-spoiler-00000002-QINU

Other RF Wiki?

There is a another wiki, we could get some info off that for this wiki and maybe update that wiki too with some of our info.

MediaWiki extensions

Whoever manages this wiki (in terms of the server, the PHP) may want to look into getting the following extensions installed.

Cite
Allows us to add inline citations (as footnotes/endnotes) that are numbered automatically. Can also be used for regular footnotes. Makes citing sources extremely easy and convenient (compared to the current solution, which requires manually-maintained SUP tags). (Honestly, this should be standard on every wiki, I've no clue why it's not.)
ParserFunctions
Allows more flexible logic, such as if-then-else statements, in templates.

Adding extensions

Will look into those. Thanks digital_ruler 22:18, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

WebCite

PROTIP: Using WebCite allows us to cite pages without having to deal with dead links that may arise in the future. The service essentially creates a copy of any given URL.

The RFII, RFG, etc., sites are already defunct. Perhaps this can be useful for citing the RFA site, though since that's Flash, things could get... tricky. DavidJCobb 17:57, 26 June 2010 (UTC)
