I'm the 8.558kBind guy.

I'll fix these issues as soon as I can since I have exams this week. --Amicdict (Amicdict) 04:32, 24 May 2021 (PDT)

PSA: conflicts in the archer_proxy and base_boss pages

They both use template pairs that intend to show the same thing: Template:KV Targetname + Template:KV BaseEntity pair, and Template:I Targetname + Template:I BaseEntity pair. So this is what the page ends up looking like this:

How the page is displayed

KeyValues section


Inputs section


My Proposal

TheTargetnametemplates, Template:KV Targetname and Template:I Targetname are actually deprecated, and theBaseEntitytemplates are the currently maintained and more updated ones, so I advise against using any of them.

BUT if you still are thinking about theTargetnametemplates, I request that when using{{KV Targetname}} template, do it like this:

{{KV Targetname|basehl2=1}}



As for the{{I Targetname}}template, there isn't a way to control what infomation is displayed, so I won't give any suggestions on how to use it.

One more thing, give the Show Preview and Show Changes buttons some tries, they're very helpful before you publish edits! I use Show Preview after pasting my VDC edit .HTML file drafts to a page, then Show Changes to write out a summary, or an alternate method to double-check on edits. --Orin (talk) 04:32, 24 May 2021 (PDT)

FYI to KV_WeaponSpawn

FYI, "WeaponSpawn" and "WeaponSpawnSingle" is only for Left 4 Dead Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2 Left 4 Dead 2 . Dedicated weapon spawners can be found in L4Ds that let players pick up players from them, and that's what the template refers to. Afaik the only way to pickup weapons in tf2 is from dead players, and those are tf_dropped_weapon entities only.

The 2nd closest candidate would be weapons from the CS series: Counter-Strike: Source Counter-Strike: Source or Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Counter-Strike: Global Offensive , but a page like weapon_glock seems to suggest otherwise.

I don't mind too much since the template is set up messily, has no documentation, and a lot of pages to clean up if the mess is to be cleared (Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:KV_WeaponSpawn. The effort to clear up the mess is discouraging solo, so I'm not sure how long will this take. --Orin (talk) 23:23, 31 October 2021 (PDT)
