  • Nice, too bad it says my e-mail needs to me 'whitelisted', even tho it is the same I use with H&G... --Brakke (talk) 04:08, 5 February 2016 (UTC)
  • If you can't get one, I can get another code and give it to you, if you're okay with that... -Nemotoad 11:07, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

I will add more free gold/veteran codes here when they become available --Africandave.png AFRICANDAVE Usertalk.png 04:52, 8 June 2015 (UTC)


lel Bicycle page is protected[edit source]

The page for civilian bicycle is protected. Does it need to be? A lot of bike jokes or something?

Lol yea we had a guy who kept changing the number of passenger to 2 and higher, Other would sometimes change it but in "passensger" counts on the wiki we do not include the "driver" (Mostly for tank pages/alt gunners etc) anyway locked it ages ago. --Africandave.png AFRICANDAVE Usertalk.png 03:39, 9 June 2015 (UTC)

New Stuff[edit source]

Paraplanes[edit source]

Finally new para images have been trimmed up. Have not done soviet lend lease one as image had the engine running so blades would have been blurry/miss-trimmed. Angles are not 100% perfect but close enough/ better than what we had. --Africandave.png AFRICANDAVE Usertalk.png 02:56, 9 June 2015 (UTC)

I noticed the new images, look great, thanks. mjbaskerville (talk) 03:22, 9 June 2015 (UTC)

Featured Image slideshow box[edit source]

Added a new featured image box on the main page that acts like a slideshow- just chucked some screens we had lying around in there for now will likely grab some nice custom screens from the forums and add them in later. --Africandave.png AFRICANDAVE Usertalk.png 04:01, 9 June 2015 (UTC)

Vehicle pages uniform remember your DTAUG[edit source]

I think gameplay section on vehicle pages should really be merged into tips and if really needs to be kept it can live in GUIDES.

All German vehicle pages now follow the simple DTAUG format,

Description, -------- e.g. Retos description that can be found in the vehicle store.

Tips, -------- e.g. Helpful tips from users on how to use the vehicle to it's maximum effect.

Ammo, -------- e.g. Ammo options if there are any if not keep the category and simply place N/A.

Upgrades, -------- e.g. Crate options if there are any if not keep the category and simply place N/A.

Gallery, -------- e.g. A place for in game images or community made images drawing attention to the strengths and weaknesses of said vehicles.

keeps them neat and tidy.

I will let people digest the format and if there are no problems I can do the other pages. mjbaskerville (talk) 22:24, 29 May 2015 (UTC)

  • I like the new format, would only add "G" at the end for Gallery with limited sizes so as not to take up the whole page. So long as the Ammo info boxes don't get messy or remain incomplete becasue of stats like "velocity" the pages will look great. Only issues would be gameplay section, as many weapons will not have their own guides and if they did the pages would be stubs, which we already have too many of (for example kwk canon pages that are basically a meaningless link, if people want to learn about these guns they shouldn't be on the HNG wiki). It would be great to hear some more opinions of this from others, then I can incorporate it into the Style Guide. --Africandave.png AFRICANDAVE Usertalk.png 09:42, 4 June 2015 (UTC)
Is the infobox image not enough? mjbaskerville (talk) 06:14, 6 June 2015 (UTC)
It's fine for the infobox, but galleries are a nice feature for other images (so long as they look professional/standerdised) such as the staged screenshots made on test server and images that show more detailed info like armour thickness eg combine the 2 pics below which we have a few of now (colourised ones similar to war thunder display system). They are also very much commonplace in other wikis. --Africandave.png AFRICANDAVE Usertalk.png 04:31, 8 June 2015 (UTC)

I have seen those on the forum and so I agree gallery section is a good idea. mjbaskerville (talk) 01:54, 9 June 2015 (UTC)
Yea BlaineUK has been messing round with them a lot. I would be helping him getting images info etc unfortunately my gaming PC is dead (moving overseas soon so won't bother replacing til I get there) so I am working off my crappy laptop. I don't see you post much on the forums. --Africandave.png AFRICANDAVE Usertalk.png 02:26, 9 June 2015 (UTC)
I used to post a few suggestions of the forums but it really is a cesspool of arguments and egos and my small number of ideas and suggestions got buried beneath OP and war ego discussions not to mention the avatar and over sized signature vandalism. I feel for you not having a gaming PC.
That's the forum for you, every now and then I post wiki stuff there (like ideas on how to improve or what people think/just asking for opinions etc) and it too gets drowned out in the flame war. Although even on the reddit I posted a topic and had the same response.. --Africandave.png AFRICANDAVE Usertalk.png 03:49, 9 June 2015 (UTC)

Weapon Abbreviations[edit source]

Please do not use weapon abbreviations, unless previously related to the full name earlier in the same article. For example, instead of writing StG44, I would write Sturmgewehr 44, unless I had previously written in the same article "The Sturmgewehr 44, also known as the StG44..." or something to that effect. It would be nice if this could be added to the style guide. In the mean time, I will be going through pages and changing the abbreviations to the full names where I see fit. I have lots of tiny edits ahead of me... -Nemotoad 10:56, 2 November 2015 (UTC)

its been how many months now since the wiki was updated? alot of the info here is misleading currently due to current modified features.

Updated look coming[edit source]

I've been passed along a request by the devs to update the skin of the wiki. I've already started some work on this behind the scenes, but I don't have an ETA yet because I'm still expecting some graphics. I think it'll probably happen sooner rather than later, though. The new look will be closer to the appearance of the official site. OOeyes (talk) 02:44, 12 September 2016 (UTC)

guys, i have uninstalled and reinstalled heroes and generals on steam few times but this error keep coming in. Its had been like this for 3 days already. I check the server status in twitter and it say that it has re-open. Can someone help me to solve this issue? Things that i had done is "verify integrity game cache", steam-setting-download-clear download cache" and "uninstalled and reinstall it again" all not working

  • What does the error say? Also, you may want to browse the FAQ at H&G Support to see if your issue has been reported. If not, I recommend opening a support ticket so that Reto knows about the issue and can fix it asap. -Nemotoad 14:08, 30 October 2016 (UTC)

Skins for m1911 pistol[edit source]

Hey guys. So many cool skins for russian weapons. But most US skins aren't as they look when you buy them. And i think there should be skins and skin combinations (a US star and you put it on birch skin) TT33 has one ok skin

Tell me your ideas!

  • You might want to consider writing about this on the forums. This is a player-run wiki and as such we have no control over the development of the game. -Nemotoad 15:52, 22 January 2017 (UTC)

lingua italiana[edit source]

Salve, sono nuovo in questo bellissimo gioco che mi prende molto, curato nei minimi dettagli. Secondo me un aggiunta di lingua Italiana non farebbe male per i fans italiani per questo gioco. Egregi saluti Mattlaro
