Welcome to Curse! and thanks so much for coming over. Have you tried reclaiming your Wikia account ? In the meantime, I've given this username admin rights and issued you a display name change credit. — Game widow (talk) 18:51, 5 March 2013 (UTC)

Nope, I haven't. And what does that thing (reclaiming) do? - John Miles (talk) 18:57, 5 March 2013 (UTC)
The reclaiming thing should allow you to merge John Miles with JohnMiles. But you need to be logged off the wiki (and Curse.com, if you are logged in there) when you use it. As for my ban, Wikia doesn't like it when you fork your wiki — Game widow (talk) 19:25, 5 March 2013 (UTC)
I've not heard back from you, have things worked out ? — Game widow (talk) 23:31, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

Curse Rewards / Thank-you program[edit source]

check it out hereGame widow (talk) 22:20, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

Thank the gods, you're back![edit source]

I was beginning to worry :) — Game widow (talk) 22:50, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

I just was waiting for the right moment to make my appearance more dramatic. ^_^ I even had to buy today a new video card so I could play Witcher 3 (it refused to run on the old one :(( ) PS. Btw, I see a quest missing here: The Witcher 3 quests. The problem is it is called "Kaer Morhen" (the very first quest of TW3 actually). So, I don't know what name should the article have "Kaer Morhen: Quest" or smth? Could you add it?.. And yeah, I'll have to remember some thing ab wiki formatting... haven't been practicing for quite a while... )) - John Miles (talk) 22:58, 19 May 2015 (UTC)
Use "Kaer Morhen (quest)" please :) then you can use the name field in the infobox and just put "Kaer Morhen" there — Game widow (talk) 23:03, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

Changing Username[edit source]

CrsBenjamin: I think I fixed it? Log all the way out of the wiki (and maybe clear your browser cache, just for good measure) then log back in. I re-named your account globally and that should take effect after you log in next.
I logged out. Now I can't log in at all neither with John Miles, nor JohnMiles login. It just states: "Incorrect password entered. Please try again." - 195.9.45.252 17:26, 9 June 2015 (UTC)
Now I was able to relogin with "John Miles" login, though it still states as John Miles... and I'm a bit afraid to clean cookies or smth to be honest... not worth it losing my account at all... )) - John Miles (talk) 17:30, 9 June 2015 (UTC)
Sorry, I believe the new username is John_Miles — Game widow (talk) 18:22, 9 June 2015 (UTC)
Well, I checked: now I can login either with "John Miles" or "John_Miles", but the thing is - only the name that I enter while Signing In has changed (trying to login with John Miles results in mistake now), but inside the wiki - I'm still "John Miles", nothing changed at all. That's not what I had in mind. :) - John Miles (talk) 20:05, 9 June 2015 (UTC)
Not what i had in mind at all either. Looking into it — Game widow (talk) 20:27, 9 June 2015 (UTC)
Well, looks like now it finally changed. I had to exit and relogin as "John Miles" again - and it looks like I'm now "John Miles" INSIDE the wiki as well... hope that won't break... )) - John Miles (talk) 20:59, 9 June 2015 (UTC)
Sorry for the trouble. I had to dig into the site code to figure out why your particular account was aborting the automatic rename process. We pushed out a hot fix for the issue! Thanks for sticking with us. Azxiana (talk) 21:20, 9 June 2015 (UTC)
Glad I appeared to be useful... in some way... PS. We, Russians, are so severe that even our accounts refuse to change! MUAHHH! FOR MAZA RUSHA!!! :) - John Miles (talk) 21:48, 9 June 2015 (UTC)

Videos![edit source]

Surely you've got one of the drunken, cross-dressing witchers :D for this page (if not another one) — Game widow (talk) 23:02, 22 July 2015 (UTC)

Well, I'll definitely make those when I get to that... :))) I'm a slowpoke, you know... job and lots of effort needed to edit the captured raw material and decorate it properly have their limitations on the video conveyer... :) - John Miles (talk) 23:16, 22 July 2015 (UTC)
I can wait :) your lovely videos are worth it — Game widow (talk) 23:17, 22 July 2015 (UTC)
Ooooh... ^_^ - John Miles (talk) 00:01, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
But while i'm in request mode! Could you do an "Uma" retrospective? He's such a cute/endearing character ... — Game widow (talk) 00:22, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
Cute? Won't say by the looks. Cute like Dea. :) But ok, I'll try to make his story video, though that won't happen fast. :) PS. You may feel free to ask what videos you would like to see - I can't promise of course that I would surely make them (some may be too difficult task), but I'll certainly pay attention to that. - John Miles (talk) 09:01, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
Fair enough! — Game widow (talk) 10:38, 23 July 2015 (UTC)

Still working out kinks[edit source]

For those amenities, don't add the square brackets :)

Aah, forgot... but still: there's a tankard and I want a twig :'( - John Miles (talk) 00:31, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
Fixed :D — Game widow (talk) 00:38, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

Tw2 romance / videos[edit source]

I just noticed youtube took the Cynthia and Triss videos down, are there others ? Are they taking all your videos down ? — Game widow (talk) 13:39, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

Which ones exactly? They did took some of them some time ago and I got a strike on my account (though I spent lots of time censoring (blurring) them to compile with YouTube hypocrite policies). Once my whole account was banned because of some idiot who didn't like smth and started marking all my videos as spam or abuse. But as I recall they haven't took down more of them recently. The thing is that videos could be marked as "age-restricted" either by YouTube moderators or by myself. In this case you should be logged in YouTube (and be above 18, but who checks this?) to watch them. - John Miles (talk) 13:49, 13 August 2015 (UTC)
PS. The last one that was deleted by YouTube with a strike to account and all that was "Sex with Cynthia", but there're no link to it on this wiki as I remember. The one called "Cynthia: Full Story..." is currently just fine, just age-restricted I suppose. - John Miles (talk) 13:53, 13 August 2015 (UTC)
Age-restricted videos are fine by me. The missing ones are "ZYln2sBu5Tk" (Triss) and "tw5qtM7C1dw" (Cynthia) — Game widow (talk) 13:57, 13 August 2015 (UTC)
Yep, those two were deleted by f... b... I filed a claim asking them to show me at least ONE FRAME with bare f... nipple but they did't give a sh... So, if there are links to them somewhere on the wiki, it should be deleted, coz there's no way I could get them back unfortunately. There were no others so far (tfu-tfu-tfu...) as I remember. Just some of them (the ones with TW1 Sex Cards and TW2 romance) were marked age-restricted. Some of them by me: it doesn't give any guarantees, but otherwise the chances that the videos would be deleted completely rises substantially. And after 3 strikes on account the whole channel could be banned with all the videos on it. - John Miles (talk) 14:05, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

Modkit and in-game inventory icons[edit source]

Have you figured out how to get at the inventory icons yet ? — Game widow (talk) 17:58, 15 August 2015 (UTC)

Nope, not yet, I was swimming in a pond. ^_^ Just returned. - John Miles (talk) 18:04, 15 August 2015 (UTC)
PS. Started uncooking the game... we'll see where it ends... btw, and where did you get those images that we have now? - John Miles (talk) 18:48, 15 August 2015 (UTC)
Tried to export cooked .xbm's into .tga or smth... still results in error... :((( Like here [1] - John Miles (talk) 19:45, 15 August 2015 (UTC)
I managed to do the uncook part but there are no icons in it — Game widow (talk) 20:29, 15 August 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, I also was successful with uncooking, but with the same result. Saw only posters there. Maybe they're hidden deeper. - John Miles (talk) 20:38, 15 August 2015 (UTC)

Location names[edit source]

Is it possible to give some sort of reference for Mowshurst? Other players (well, one at least) are questioning where you got that. There may also be other questions — Game widow ( talk ) 10:55, 4 December 2015 (UTC)

If I remember correctly, its name appears when you enter the location (like with many other places that have no fast travel marks). I may check it once more if it's necessary... PS. Hi. Have been a little busy lately. Happy holidays! ;) — John Miles (talk) 19:23, 29 December 2015 (UTC)
Yep, when you enter the village, its name appears to the right of the screen: watch, its map location is here: watch. — John Miles (talk) 12:38, 4 January 2016 (UTC)
Thanks a million for double checking! :) — Game widow ( talk ) 13:13, 4 January 2016 (UTC)

A Walk on the Waterfront[edit source]

I have looked and looked for this quest, when / how does it show up? — Game widow ( talk ) 14:32, 8 January 2017 (UTC)

"I didn't do anything" :)) I just entered the docks - and it was there. That was the first time Geralt visiting the docks though. Maybe if you meet him and don't react at first time he will leave, I dunno. I haven't completed any prerequisites for this quest. PS. I specifically captured the map location, since I saw that it wasn't on the wiki. — John Miles (talk) 15:19, 8 January 2017 (UTC)
Great, if there are any journal entries, we need those too ... despite having the strings files, i've never found anything — Game widow ( talk ) 15:28, 8 January 2017 (UTC)
Nevermind, i see you've added those :) thanks! — Game widow ( talk ) 15:29, 8 January 2017 (UTC)
You welcome. I even checked if the journal entry changes depending on your choice. ;) PS. It doesn't. — John Miles (talk) 15:34, 8 January 2017 (UTC)

Barnful of Trouble[edit source]

You don't even show that if Geralt searches the barn he finds that those villagers are not so innocent — Game widow ( talk ) 14:30, 17 May 2018 (UTC)

hmmm... wait, wut?.. was there smth else? :)) — John Miles (talk) 14:34, 17 May 2018 (UTC)
Yep, after killing the ghouls, search the whole barn, you'll see — Game widow ( talk ) 15:18, 17 May 2018 (UTC)
Yeah... already googled it... damn it... don't want to recapture the whole thing... rrrrr.... :( — John Miles (talk) 15:34, 17 May 2018 (UTC)
