New (working!) wiki online!
« on: December 10, 2013, 08:07:38 pm »
Thanks to the appreciated persistance and suggestions from PL1 and other folks here, I have finally installed a new wiki and put it online. The address is newwiki.arcadecontrols.com, while the old one still resides at wiki.arcadecontrols.com. At some point both addresses will point to the new wiki, but until everything is moved the old one remains for reference. Everything text wise has been moved, but images from the old wiki didn't move properly and are having to be manually moved, a labor intensive process.

What's changed?

1. The new wiki is on the newest version as of a few days ago.
2. The old wiki user authentication was tied to the forum, and that was broken. The new wiki has its own user database unrelated to the forum user name. However, please use the same name if you want to work on the wiki.
3. New users cannot create their own account on the wiki. That may change in the future, but for SPAM prevention right now an account has to be created for you. See this message for details on getting a wiki editing account.

The wiki is yours and what you make of it folks. :)

The Community Portal page has some good guidance to help you start off on the right foot.

The main thing to be careful of is not to post copyrighted material without permission from the copyright holder.

For now, plug the desired page name into the wiki search field *exactly* as you want it to appear.

When the search comes up showing
Quote
There were no results matching the query.

Create the page "PGA Golf" on this wiki!

Just click on the red link and start editing.   ;D

Have fun and if you have any questions/issues with the page, each page also has an associated discussion/talk page (like this one for the FAQ) that you can use as a things to do list or asking for help with the page.

Protip: The wiki will translate "~~~~" into the username/date stamp that you see on the Talk:FAQ page.  ;D

One question to ponder: How do you want people to find/navigate to this page?

Not sure what category/parent page it would fall under or link from -- maybe Felsir can chime in with a suggestion here.   :dunno

hi pl1
thk-u for your reply :)
i was thinking it of linking it out of here.?
the rules are clear now
pga sports by gobalvr i have the code writes to as i share with them
but ANY THING TO DO WITH EA I DO NOT so i avoid it
this would be there dongle.
that was made very clear to me before,from them.
all i will put in the pdf is which dongle goes to which s/w,and resuce disk's etc,
i just wanted the way's..thk-u very much again

I see no copyright issues for a PDF saying that dongle X goes with software version Y for program Z, but you might want to keep it as text for future editing ease.

Added an example of documenting copyright permission on the Community Portal page.

If you do decide to include material from a company like VR that doesn't have close ties to the BYOAC community, you may also want to include a copy of the e-mail granting permission on the talk page or Comment block just in case the guy who gave permission retires and his replacement has no record of it.    :o

got it.

even though as u have seen me do in open form post the author's credit's.
alot of it i had to find trial and error
as i stated ea sport's are the stick in the mud..so not a tad of there code will be posted
the olny thing i am planing on doing is extending the q's and a's from 2 forms here
which 1 is the mother form >mine< and stpcore's the sister
as mine runs 18page's deep as dose stpcore's,
i thought it was time to put what dongle works with what s/w to use,as there is a wack of ppl that do not know,plus the fact's of what hardware can be used,plus what dongle is needed,
and other ceritan facts..

ie can i swap out the monitor for a lcd ?
do i need the dongle ?
what is the best power-supply ?
can i swap the video card ?
all of these have been answered in forms
but there is alot of in-between traffic that the answer never really get's there..

why i am trying to do this, is it took 3 pages in the mother form to explain to ppl windowsxp>e<,and i think alot of them went wtf..

onto your point i will get a copy of it from gobalvr and post it  for u with the pdf
if i go out of bound's..but i do not think i will.
as i do not intened to post rom code,
i got that point.

I'm not sure I understand the goal of the PGA Golf page?
Is it to inform people how to configure specific things? We might set up a page for specific game-configuration help?

After some consideration, the Restoration page, "Game-Specific Resources" section looks like a reasonable choice for linking to this page/info.

The people trying to restore/repair these systems are the people who need to know which combinations of software/hardware/firmware/dongle work together.

All of this assumes I'm translating the "Ed-speak" correctly.   :lol   Amiright, Ed?

Felsir
honsestly
i went to lock the mother thread up today
so no more reply's can come to it...
the pdf is just about ready for u very fine ppl to study and edit if u want.

Felsir
i opened my thread with a simple question
which is what video card can i use ?
in place of a burnt out 4200
well that opened a can of worms as it is said.
the reason is easy to understand
gobalvr @ ea sports were in court and parting way's
so gobal vr would not offer support nor could or would ea
so alot of ppl were  stuck in a rock and hard place.
so they had a hudge machine they loved and no where to go,
little did i know i was the guy steping up to the plate to pick up the ball.
i guess i hit a wack of home run's,as stpcore has made a tiddie little side business of it,
for me it was the goal..fix-it

i truly hope this puts your questions to bed ?

No problem ed12. I understand the intentions. A page to save people from having to do a ton a research someone already did is basically the purpose of the wiki- it was just the matter of where to put it :-)
