    Hey BehindTheEight, can I ask you a favor?

    Can you upload the new Kane´s  Widowmaker boss sprite sheet?

    It will help me to put a unique unit on the Kane's Forces faction xp

    Anyway maybe in one or two months more can I show you if you want these fan game progress xp

  • Dear BehindTheEight,

    I am Mulliganaceous, and I have tried out this game over six years ago, back in SEP 2011. However, I first played this game for real in 2015, though I did take a two-year break. Nevertheless, I have tracked the wiki ever since WC came out, and this has been the first game I have played in the long term (the other is Candy Crush Saga, which I first tried in 2013).

    I recently returned to the game, though I am only a Level 33, and I must go back to previous events in order to fill up the missing information. Also, the most recent events have a lot of missing information. Since you played this game for a much longer term, you are able to extract more content without relying on F12 and close analysis of encodings and internal workings in this game.

    I am impressed about how much you contributed during your free time. You also showed good photo formatting and extraction skills (this is also the first game I extracted, and I am also the one to extract large rank pictures, albeit under an anonymous name), to the point that you practically rule the wiki. I wonder how you could extract so much information and pictures in regards to new units and events? Which things can you extract just by using F12? How long does it take to extract the information for each page (It will depend on whether it is a unit, event, base, or other mechanic)?

    Similarly, I am an admin, soon to become bureaucrat for Candy Crush Wiki, and I am the one responsible for extracting all the information of level configuration files and encodings for each of the levels. I wrote a program worth thousands of codes to extract each level, and the total program took up several megabytes of disk space (due to the configs), and up to a hundred megabytes of memory while my program is extracting all configs. As I am diversifying my interests and contributions, I am able to help you in information extracting, filling up the information, and making template creation easier in order to keep this wiki up to date.

    Since WC is more hardcore, and may pressure casual players more than CCS, it obviously have much less players than CCS. WC peaked at around 5M monthly active users, and is still running strong today, while CCS got over 150M monthly active users. Nevertheless, the CCS forums (King Care) is poorly designed, and the WC forums are still going strong.

    I hope you can fill out the remaining information in your free time, and that I can help you in filling up and obtaining information for the wiki.

    • I mean, to make the template easy to edit, easy to organize, and more concise in terms of source code.

      Is it okay that I can create pages of each unique base, and add a video walkthrough in it?

    • Lets wait on all that till after the Event is over.. then I can help you.

      by the way...

      I did the layouts for most of the Thor Layouts.  Still need to put together some of the 80's, I have the shots just need to do the gimp work.

      There are 6 level 65's I found and 7 Level 80's...dam .. lots of layouts.

      Send me a message after the event... and we can discuss the stuff you want to do.

  • Greatings!

    First of all, thanks for the constants effort to update the wikia of War Commander!

    I have a question, how you can get the sprite sheets of the game? :o

    Maybe I can help trying to get the old units sprites xp

      Loading editor
    • I don't know if Kixeye wants me telling people how to get them.... lol. 

      I think its a violation of the use agreement but I don't care myself ... I like having the clean graphics for this wiki.

      Plus... I actually have the sprites for every unit currently in the game ( I think ).  Anything that you can't see in the game we don't have access to anymore.

      But thanks anyways for the offer of help! Its always appreciated.

    • Yeah same here i think its a violation of the use of agreement but i dont care too, lol xp

      I have a lot of time i don´t play this game and I started play again, and remember the old times, so, I was starting making a Non-Comercial RTS (Like Starcraft) just like some kind of tribute for the game (The Legacy and Unique Era first, because for Kixeye's business), but im in the search for the approval of Kixeye first before the publications of this xp

      But graphically it take me a lot of time take screenshots for every angle and frame lol, but its kinda funny xp

      Anyway keep the good work for the wikia! if need some old units info i have a lot of legacy and uniques units on level one for the stats xp

  • take a look at Sandbox I think after all this time the answer has finally been answered i made a css style sheet in MediaWiki:Wikia.css  called class = wctable closely resembles your wiki markup. I found out all of the markup for each table you have made has what is called inline css styles. let me know what you think please. oh by the way long time no see. I have lost all of my computers and currently using a cellphone to write this message.

  • Hey Troy, I just made the War Dog page but I've got a problem, the image doesn't fit the page, look at it: http://warcommander.wikia.com/wiki/War_Dog , could you correct it, please? oh, and also check if i have some mistakes too as it's my first time making a page lol.

    • I will correct it when the unit is released... all the stats you put on the page are tentative and may be changed when the unit is released.

      This is why I don't usually make the page unit it is released.

      As for the pic... it must be 150px max to fit without throwing off the alignment. For some reason your pic is from a screen what was zoomed in so its 192px.

      Again I will fix it when it comes out.

      Thanks

  • Good evening, & sorry to disturb you, Admin.

    I seem to have difficulty in inserting images by WC wiki standard.

    I'll give you the pictures (Update : I can't upload the ZIP file)

    Hope you can add it.

    Or maybe you can teach me about this?

  • How do you remove the shadows from the buildings? I noticed your wave of faction CC images and I was thinking about removing those shadows by myself and save you some time removing them.

      Loading editor
    • I would use GIMP to do it by hand.

      But I don't know if need to do it.. I used to remove shadows becuase it made things look better displayed in tables or in galleries but sometimes I tend to overdue things.  

      If you want to do it, feel free.  Since it is a repeditive task it shouldn't take long..

      Just make sure you use the "Upload a new version of this file" to replace the images.
