PicturesEdit

Just a head's up, I'm updating a few of the images for characters in Aliens (i.e. Van Leuwen).--Toa Quarax (Talk) (Contribs) 00:31, August 2, 2014 (UTC)

Here's a full list of the pages with updated images:

It'll take a while before the images are displayed on the actual page. You're going to have to go to the image's page if you want to see the new versions (which should be completely different from the original versions, but sometimes will be displayed as the original).--Toa Quarax (Talk) (Contribs) 00:52, August 2, 2014 (UTC)

Cool, no problem. Just so you know, all the character images I uploaded are cropped to 4:5, so they all appear the same size on the pages. If you're gonna be replacing a few you might wanna keep them to the same ration :) --Leigh Burne (Talk) (Contribs) 19:40, August 2, 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, I forgot about that. I'll redo the ones that can be cropped to that ratio.--Toa Quarax (Talk) (Contribs) 20:20, August 2, 2014 (UTC)
OK, all images should be in 4:5 (or 1:1.25) now. It also seems newer versions of pictures appear much faster than they used to.--Toa Quarax (Talk) (Contribs) 20:54, August 2, 2014 (UTC)
What do you think of the new image for The Alien (Xenomorph)?--Toa Quarax (Talk) (Contribs) 20:24, August 5, 2014 (UTC)
Probably better than the old one. It's always hard to get a decent shot of the Aliens because they're almost never shown clearly.--Leigh Burne (Talk) (Contribs) 08:47, August 6, 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, I went frame-by-frame in some scenes trying to find a good picture. It's always too dark, not enough of the Alien is visible, or it's too blurry.--Toa Quarax (Talk) (Contribs) 18:00, August 6, 2014 (UTC)
Yeah. The new picture's fine though. In fact, the only image you've added that I might query is the one for Brett. It looks kinda fuzzy, although if I'm honest I can't actually remember what the previous image was...--Leigh Burne (Talk) (Contribs) 07:50, August 7, 2014 (UTC)
That's one's not too good, but I think it's better than the original:
Brett
I think I could find a better one, though.--Toa Quarax (Talk) (Contribs) 22:24, August 7, 2014 (UTC)
That's fair enough, I honestly couldn't remember what I'd uploaded back when I redid all the character pages, it was a while ago!--Leigh Burne (Talk) (Contribs) 07:55, August 8, 2014 (UTC)

ChatEdit

Tell me when you've got a chance to talk in the chatroom.--Toa Quarax (Talk) (Contribs) 01:05, August 12, 2014 (UTC)

I was away for a few days over the weekend, but I should be able to get on today. If you drop me a message on my talk page when you're about, I should see it and be able to get on.--Leigh Burne (Talk) (Contribs) 08:16, August 12, 2014 (UTC)
I'm in the chatroom now. I'll be on for a few more hours, so join when you can.--Toa Quarax (Talk) (Contribs) 00:27, August 13, 2014 (UTC)
Oh, it's 1:30 AM where you are. I'll try to wake up early tomorrow so I'll be online the same time as you.--Toa Quarax (Talk) (Contribs) 00:28, August 13, 2014 (UTC)
Hah, yeah, sorry, didn't realise you'd be on so late. Maybe we should plan this a little more accurately! You're in Canada, right?--Leigh Burne (Talk) (Contribs) 07:49, August 13, 2014 (UTC)
I'm currently in the US now. Are you on right now, or did I just miss you?14:21, August 13, 2014 (UTC)
I'm around, can get on now.--Leigh Burne (Talk) (Contribs) 14:32, August 13, 2014 (UTC)
OK, I'm back.--Toa Quarax (Talk) (Contribs) 14:36, August 13, 2014 (UTC)
And I just realized I could have just sent you a PM on AvPGalaxy... Derp.--Toa Quarax (Talk) (Contribs) 17:17, August 13, 2014 (UTC)
Haha no worries. Turns out I didn't have an account at Alien Legacy, but I've created one and it's been activated now.--Leigh Burne (Talk) (Contribs) 07:40, August 14, 2014 (UTC)
Well, it took a while, but he responded.--Toa Quarax (Talk) (Contribs) 21:52, August 23, 2014 (UTC)

Trophies/achievement pagesEdit

Great job on the trophies/achievement pages. How did you get all of the images?--Toa Quarax (Talk) (Contribs) 17:34, August 15, 2014 (UTC)

Oh, cool. I skimmed thought it and the spoilers seem to be very minor; no deaths or anything big.--Toa Quarax (Talk) (Contribs) 20:58, August 15, 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, I've been meaning to do them for a while. I got the icons from a trophy hunting website, just copied them to an image program and saved them to my PC. Took a while (main reason I hadn't done it until now!) but worked quite nicely.
As for the Isolation trophies, that's awesome, I'll definitely have a look through those. But I can't really do a page until the same website has the icons! I'll do it when they're up though.--Leigh Burne (Talk) (Contribs) 09:05, August 17, 2014 (UTC)

Apone rankEdit

On IMFDb, StanTheMan said, "He actually has US Army-style SFC chevrons, not Marine GySgt ones." Do you think we should open a thread on The Aliens Legacy? I'm pretty sure there's some ex-military guys there that would know.--Toa Quarax (Talk) (Contribs) 21:52, August 23, 2014 (UTC)

I actually noticed when I made the change back to Gunnery Sergeant on here that his insignia in the film are missing the crossed rifles found on the Gunnery Sergeant insignia images I found online, but I don't really know enough about the US military to know whether that was important.--Leigh Burne (Talk) (Contribs) 14:11, August 25, 2014 (UTC)

Alien BTS stuffEdit

I finally found a PDF of Cinefex issue 1 (it takes a few minutes to load) while looking for some more BTS information on the flamethrower. There's tons of info and picture there; I haven't read through it myself yet. Also, have you seen this yet?--Toa Quarax (Talk) (Contribs) 03:14, August 30, 2014 (UTC)

Cool, I'll have a look through it. I haven't seen those videos, no. You watched any of them yet?--Leigh Burne (Talk) (Contribs) 08:10, September 1, 2014 (UTC)

I've watched a bit of some of them. The first one seems to have stuff we've heard before in the official documentaries, but the others contain tons of new information.--Toa Quarax (Talk) (Contribs) 19:10, September 1, 2014 (UTC)

Laser pistol referenceEdit

Can you check your copy of the Alien novelization (which copy do you have, by the way?) for what page the guns in the film are said to be laser pistols? In the new version, it's on page 59.--Toa Quarax (Talk) (Contribs) 07:06, August 31, 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, I took all the page references for the novels from the Omnibus edition, which is the first three lumped into one book, because that was the only version I could get new/for a reasonable price at the time I decided to buy them. Then I noticed over the weekend that the new individual editions of the novels are paged up totally differently. Not sure what to do about this.--Leigh Burne (Talk) (Contribs) 08:20, September 1, 2014 (UTC)

JonesEdit

Do you know where Jonesy just being a nickname for Jones comes from? I was thinking it might be from the novelization, but I'm unsure.--Toa Quarax (Talk) (Contribs) 19:26, September 10, 2014 (UTC)

I just checked myself (page 11 in the 2014 version), and it clearly says his name is Jones, without even mentioning the nickname. Do you know if Jonesy is ever even mentioned in the novel?--Toa Quarax (Talk) (Contribs) 19:51, September 10, 2014 (UTC)

I'm not sure if Jonesy is ever used in the book, but it's definitely used by Brett in the film, and I have a feeling Ripley says it at some point too.--Leigh Burne (Talk) (Contribs) 07:54, September 11, 2014 (UTC)

--Toa Quarax (Talk) (Contribs) 01:48, September 12, 2014 (UTC)

Awesome, thanks! I honestly didn't realise there were so many. Where did you get all the info from?--Leigh Burne (Talk) (Contribs) 07:48, September 12, 2014 (UTC)
Alien Legend, an archived script trading page from the Weyland-Yutani Archives, an interview with Jon Spaihts, and the wiki's Alien: Engineers page.--Toa Quarax (Talk) (Contribs) 15:22, September 12, 2014 (UTC)

Vincent Ward Alien IIIEdit

Have you seen this?--Toa Quarax (Talk) (Contribs) 19:35, September 15, 2014 (UTC)

I had not, that's pretty cool. Some beautiful images in there. Sadly I don't think we can really use any of them though — the fact they're all watermarked makes me think they don't want them spread around. Plus a whole bunch of the best ones are copyrighted anyway.--Leigh Burne (Talk) (Contribs) 07:52, September 16, 2014 (UTC)

Predator: Concrete Jungle Edit

Thanks. It's a really under-appreciated game and the best Predator game I've ever played, IMO. Granted, I'd only actually played the 1993 Alien vs Predator on SNES before that, so take it as you will. I'm even toying with the idea of writing my own sequel to it using a plot based on the mentioned SNES game.

No, it was incorrect, but I've already reverted it. The reason I changed it in the first place was because the majority of pages spelled it -uers and therefor assumed the "most common" spelling to be the correct one when it actually wasn't. But I checked some Let's Plays of the game on YouTube and it's indeed spelled -eurs.

Within the next several days I intend to screencap as many unpictured characters off YouTube as I can, as well as get a bigger image of Lucretia since the one in use is tiny. They most likely won't be HD quality (hell, you can hardly make out the Serviteur Houngan in the pic of him I uploaded!), but nothing annoys me more on wikis than bad grammar and pages without at least one image.

And while I'm at it, can I inquire as to why you reverted my edit to the title of Scarface's victim list? I renamed it to List of Known Named Victims since Scarface kills innumerable unnamed characters in the game in addition to named characters like Bruno and Hunter Borgia. I'm not mad over it or anything, I'm just curious as to why it wasn't an acceptable change. Ghost Leader (talk) (Contribs) 09:01, September 26, 2014 (UTC)


I'd love to see Ubisoft do a Pred game using the engine they use for Assassin's Creed. It's a perfect fit since it has arguably the best stealth mechanics in gaming today.

I think I'll just make an And many unnamed victims" note at the end. Seems easier than changing the template on dozens and possibly hundreds of other pages. Similar notations can be made on other pages that require it as needed. Ghost Leader (talk) (Contribs) 09:20, September 26, 2014 (UTC)

Category problems Edit

I just created a page for Baby Blew's gang and the categories won't show up on the saved page. They're there when I open the editor, though. I'm unsure what the problem is. Do you have any ideas? Ghost Leader (talk) (Contribs) 17:22, September 27, 2014 (UTC)

GreatEdit

Oh, perfect...02:11, September 28, 2014 (UTC)

Wow, already? Needless to say, I won't be watching that, I actually want to play this game. I'm gonna have to un-follow all the Isolation-related pages if you're going to be adding details from it :D --Leigh Burne (Talk) (Contribs) 08:06, September 29, 2014 (UTC)
I was thinking the same thing; it seems a bit early. I'm not adding any big spoilers now, just a few small details and some pictures of the Torrens. I'll wait until there's full walkthroughs on the game (which we should be getting Friday) or for me to get the game.--Toa Quarax (Talk) (Contribs) 00:13, October 2, 2014 (UTC)
Also, there's already... "other means" of the getting the game :D.--Toa Quarax (Talk) (Contribs) 01:50, October 2, 2014 (UTC)
True! I'm pretty sure I've un-followed all of the Isolation-related pages now, so feel free to add what you like.
On the topic of the game, I really want to play it, although I was planning on holding out until I buy a PS4. But I'm not sure I can wait that long, may just have to get the PS3 version!--Leigh Burne (Talk) (Contribs) 08:00, October 2, 2014 (UTC)
So, I was going to try and not spoil the rest of the game, since I'm getting the game for my PS4, but I looked at the wiki activity page, and some unregistered user just spoiled a part of the game for me with a heading title...01:46, October 5, 2014 (UTC)
Yep, our friend Ben has just spoiled some stuff for me with his category adding :) Luckily it was something I'd already suspected, so not too major. Downside to doing so much work on here!--Leigh Burne (Talk) (Contribs) 08:06, October 6, 2014 (UTC)

Barnstars Edit

Good work to you and Toa, its good to see the barnstars up and working now, I was never good at coding and stuff. Folks need to be recognized for seriously good contributions....hopefully it won't go to their head lol

Well done guys, that is one wiki improvement we can tick off the list.

P. S I hope I haven't spoiled anything for you and anyone with my recent edits on Alien: Isolation characters due to the catergories I placed there, I tend to edit rapidly and a lot when something new comes out, I did the same with Sea of Sorrows and Out of Shadows. In hindsight I should have waited a few weeks before placing catergories. The Cruentus (talk) (Contribs) 13:03, October 9, 2014 (UTC)

No problem. I've created a whole bunch of new barnstars for various things now (as you'd probably guessed from your user page, but you can see the rest here). And don't worry about the Isolation edits, I've been doing a pretty good job so far of not reading anything spoilery! Adding a page to a category doesn't reveal the page's content, and I can just avoid reading the articles themselves :D --Leigh Burne (Talk) (Contribs) 13:51, October 9, 2014 (UTC)

Typo on the home page Edit

Just noticed in the Navigation part of the home page, the Colonial Marines caption has a typo in it. It says "though" when it should say "tough". Ghost Leader (talk) (Contribs) 15:23, October 11, 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for bringing it to my attention, looks like Toa beat me to it though :) --Leigh Burne (Talk) (Contribs) 08:38, October 13, 2014 (UTC)

I get nowEdit

All my childish insults and abuse lead me into a block,I regret doing that now.Jamal Rogers (talk) (Contribs) 10:02, October 17, 2014 (UTC)

According to your profile, that comment is the only edit you've done on this wiki. Did you make a new account?--Toa Quarax (Talk) (Contribs) 19:42, October 17, 2014 (UTC)
I think he meant on another wiki. The Cruentus (talk) (Contribs) 20:13, October 17, 2014 (UTC)
If it is who I think it is then yes, it refers to another wiki.--Leigh Burne (Talk) (Contribs) 09:39, October 20, 2014 (UTC)

MP Slider CM TextEdit

Is the text for the Colonial Marine in the MP Slider getting cutoff on your screen?--Toa Quarax (Talk) (Contribs) 00:30, October 18, 2014 (UTC)

Yes, "handle" is cut off.--Leigh Burne (Talk) (Contribs) 09:38, October 20, 2014 (UTC)

Prometheus Goof Edit

one I think you may have missed, their description of the atmospheric content of the Moon is complete bullcrap and would actually (I believe) not be lethal to humans. ralok (talk) (Contribs) 20:31, October 22, 2014 (UTC)
