Hello, Chriskang, and welcome to the Official Guild Wars Wiki! If you need help with anything, don't hesitate to add a message to my talk page. I highly recommend that you check out the "Welcome to the wiki" page - it's extremely useful as an initial guide. Best of luck and happy editing!

Show preview[edit]

If you are also

The "Show preview"-button is your friend, use it! ;) -- CoRrRan (CoRrRan / talk) 12:45, 3 July 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the hint. And sorry for disturbing your precious "Recent changes" page :-) Chriskang 09:29, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

Luxon Box[edit]

Have you considered using

Faction (Luxon).jpg This user is a member of the Luxon alliance but doesn't care about the Alliances.

? Just type {{Template:User Luxon2}} to get it.--§ Eloc § 08:53, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

Yes i've seen those premade userboxes but most of them don't fit exactly what i want. I find most boxes too dark (i want my page to be very bright) and the icon on the luxon one is too small. That's why i choosed to create new ones. Could it be a problem on the wiki if i don't use premade templates? (like server overload or things like that) Chriskang 09:29, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

GWEN skill image uploads[edit]

Hi, I saw you uploading some of the GWEN skills. I know how to get them out of the gw.dat but how do you know which icon is for which skill? poke | talk 13:27, 11 August 2007 (UTC)
Chriskang 13:33, 11 August 2007 (UTC)
Oh, thanks ;) poke | talk 13:45, 11 August 2007 (UTC)
And just in cas someone is curious, the skill descriptions come from gw.dat too. File to look at is : #130436 with the current build. Chriskang 15:07, 11 August 2007 (UTC)
Are you using Texmod to browse the Gw.dat or some other program? --Santax (talk · contribs) 15:12, 11 August 2007 (UTC)
I'm using GwDatBrowser. You should find it easily on google. Chriskang 15:16, 11 August 2007 (UTC)
Where did you download yours from? I ask because I know there are several versions of that program circulating with a Trojan. --Santax (talk · contribs) 15:30, 11 August 2007 (UTC)
If you fear viruses, the source version (for visual studio 2005) is available here :
Otherwise, a compiled version (.EXE) is somewhere before this post in the same thread and doesn't contains trojans (that's the one i'm using and both avast & norton say it's safe). Chriskang 15:41, 11 August 2007 (UTC)
Lol, I'm still not convinced that this should be allowed, I just transcribed the dialogue from what appears to be the ending cinematic from GW:EN... with the current build it's #142605 through #142627 :P --Santax (talk · contribs) 17:01, 11 August 2007 (UTC)
Gaile said here that Anet has no problem with this. Chriskang 23:08, 11 August 2007 (UTC)
I'm looking at those #'s, but all I see is random numbers and letters I don't understand...Using GWDatBrowser_02. 07:19, 12 August 2007 (UTC)
After talking with Santax here, we figured out that the "#" number is not consistent from 1 gw.dat to another. I'll try to give the "uncompressed size" of the file in the future, instead of the #. Chriskang 08:22, 13 August 2007 (UTC)

(reset indent) Does anybody have a link to the latest version of the executable? The source dosnt do me any good :( also, does anyone know which version of the .net frame work is needed? --Lou-SaydusUser Lou-Saydus Hail Storm.jpg 00:15, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

Just look at the link I gave above. The executable is somewhere in this thread. The file is called "GWDatBrowser_02.rar". Chriskang 00:25, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

Skill description sources[edit]

Not yet implemented content[edit]

If you're going to create articles for things not yet live for in-game play, could you tag them with {{future feature}}? Thanks. Go to Aiiane's Talk page (Aiiane - talk - contribs) 23:18, 14 August 2007 (UTC)

Oops, completely forgot this tag. Thanks to remind me. Chriskang 23:47, 14 August 2007 (UTC)

O RLY?[edit]


Hah, there are some nice icons hiding about in Gw.dat! The one for BAMPH ! is pretty funny too. Just leaving this comment to give you a note about Gw.dat format - the No seems to relate to how recently you encountered something. At #151750 for me, 9 files away from the last, there is a picture of the birthday present icon, and then directly after that, there's a miniature Jade Armour icon. Yesterday I opened my birthday present for my Mezzy and it was a mini Jade. Then further towards the end, there's the icons of drops I got while adventuring in the Shiverpeaks. Just a little note. Oh, and also, something seems to be up with the icon for "I am unstoppable!". --Santax (talk · contribs) 11:47, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

Nice catch. I'll take a look at that. Thanks mate. Chriskang 12:05, 19 August 2007 (UTC)
Btw, would you explain me how you were able to identify the icons for the deldrimor skills? I mean how can you know which icon corresponds to which skill? Chriskang 12:45, 19 August 2007 (UTC)
Guesswork, mostly... they were pretty obvious. The Ebon Vanguard ones, on the other hand... :/ --Santax (talk · contribs) 12:49, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

Hero vs henchmen[edit]

LOL! For some reason, I thought someone messed up the hero article and added in the heroes.... didn't notice it was the henchmen article :P not enough sleep, heh -- sig 02:12, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

{{Polymock piece infobox}}[edit]

I'm confused, why does each piece needs 3 images? The form, the inventory icon? and what is the main bit meant for in that infobox? --LemmingUser Lemming64 sigicon.png 15:04, 29 August 2007 (UTC)

The main image is the appearance of the player when playing with the piece (looking like a Fire Imp for instance). The inventory icon is what the piece looks like in your bag and the form icon is the "environnement effect" that appears in the top-right of your screen while your are in the Fire Imp form. See this for example. Chriskang 15:10, 29 August 2007 (UTC)

+del on images[edit]

Please notify the uploaders that the image(s) they uploaded should be conform our policies, TIA. -- CoRrRan (CoRrRan / talk) 17:35, 18 October 2007 (UTC)
