About this project

"Step in the PCGamingWiki, which aims to make the biggest collection of PC tweaks, tips, and hardware guides on the Internet." - Alasdair Duncan, Destructoid.


We've all spent hours trawling through forums, websites and support Q&A to get a PC game to work. Do you spend more time researching and setting up games than actually playing them?

We present PCGamingWiki - an encyclopedia of PC game fixes. Our aim is to create a single, user-editable page for every single PC game, with information such as:

  • performance issues and fixes

  • optimisations and configurations

  • save game locations and syncing

  • graphics and FOV adjustments

  • bugs, workarounds and community patches

  • cutscene and video skipping

TotalBiscuit speaks about PCGamingWiki.

Check out some articles that has brought us the attention of the community and the media:

Taking it to the next level

"If they manage it, this could be one of the internet’s greatest resources." - Jim Rossignol, Rock Paper Shotgun.

"At this rate PCGamingWiki could one day achieve its lofty goals, thanks in no small part to the passionate PC gaming community." - Mike Fahey, Kotaku.

"PCGamingWiki is a vast source of information every PC gamer needs to know about." - Adam Ames, TruePCGaming.com

Even with all this success, PCGamingWiki has not yet reached the critical mass to be able to keep up with new releases, and to catch up on the vast PC back catalogue. Writing an encyclopedia is a gargantuan task, and it's an uphill battle for our small team of dedicated editors.

I believe that given enough time and support, we can create the biggest and best PC gaming fixes resource. This is why I would like to ask the community's help to deliver on one of PC gaming's most ambitious and important projects.
