I tried using an ogv video in gallery (since webm is not let through). It didn't work. And when using standalone it collapses it by default. Is there some way to use it in gallery and prevent collapsing?
If it can be confirmed from an official or other valid source, go ahead, but otherwise it would be better to wait.
Nonetheless, according to a friend who's been digging through the game files, apparently there will be 16 playable characters, 6 of which are existing CV characters: Alucard, Richter, Yoko, Shanoa, Maria and Soma.
I just noticed that files upload doesn't have webm option. It's only limited to ogv for video. Can you please add webm? That's the common modern container. Wikipedia is using it too. That should be much better option than using animated GIFs.
I asked around but no one seems to know how to enable the feature you request. Have you seen the ability to upload files in webm format implemented on another wiki? Do you know the place where such extension can be downloaded/looked at?
Other wiki administrators and me briefly discussed about webm uploading, but to be honest, none of us shown much interest about it and we didn't look much into it.''
No rush, but it would be nice to be able to upload videos instead of animated GIFs. Reading a page which shows constant animation without you even starting it can get really irritating, especially if there will be a lot of them. I can of course go with Theora in Ogg container (OGV) which current filter would let through, but it's suboptimal. WebM with VP9 would be much better.
So I wanted to ask - would you be opposed to me replacing these images with unfiltered versions at some point in the future? I think it'd look nicer and would also better represent what the game actually looks like.
Yes, please provide a verifiable source first. Nonetheless, if accepted, this information should go on Simon Belmont (Lords of Shadow), which is an alternate version of the character that takes place on his own universe and continuity.
Sorry for not coming back to you sooner, I'm actually aware of the new infobox. I'd like to give some feedback before it's gone live; however, as you may have already noticed, I'm currently not very active, neither on this or any other wiki, nor on Discord.
Please, give me a few days until I properly come back, would you?
