Project:To Do

From Dolphin Emulator Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Here is a list of stuff that needs doing on the wiki. Feel free to add anything you feel that needs to be done.

Regular tasks

These are regular tasks. Please do not remove them or mark as complete, as they need to be checked regularly.

Testing entry quality checks...


Scripts created to assist in maintaining quality compatibility ratings and game pages.


You can help complete the compatibility list by updating the ratings of the unrated titles. If necessary please revise title ratings based on testing.

The categories below are generated by testing templates providing age of testing details that could get some update.

Missing Template Cleanup

Missing Infobox Template

Missing Config Template

Missing Problems Template

Missing VersionCompatibility Template

Missing Testing Start Template

Missing Testing End Template

Missing VideoGallery Template

Lots of these...


Game Page Status Template

We should probably generate a template to track "completion" and frequency of different tasks for game pages, it could exist on each page's talk page and assist with maintenance. I'd like some help to scope such out here.

How are we supposed to do this exactly? I don't understand the mechanics of what you are trying to accomplish. What level of automation would be involved, and how much work does it take of an editor to fulfill everything? - MayImilae (talk) 00:26, 1 February 2013 (CET)

Proposed "Game Page Status" Template Fields

  • Developer is accurate
  • Publisher is accurate
  • Release dates are accurate
  • Modes are accurate
  • Genre is accurate (unclear about this one, I fear it may lead to fights about genre labels, but I'd also like to avoid mislabeled games)
  • Series is accurate
  • Rating is accurate for revision XXX
  • Navigation template is in place if appropriate (default to NA)
  • Page includes a full set of sections (Adding in the Gameplay Images sections will be a big part of this)
  • Title applied if page title post-fixed (i.e. GC/Wii indicators)(default to NA)
  • Description is: accurate, brief, provides info beyond what's found in the infobox.
  • Compatibility checked in version XXX (Unclear if we shouldn't just use the testing field for this though).
  • Forumlink is in place
  • Wikipedia link in functional/accurate: Date of last review
  • Date of last forum page review
  • Date of last Google issues scan (unclear this shouldn't just be handled with more regular review of the Google issues list, see section below)
  • Linkages to patches, texture packs, etc are in place and still valid (We still need to work out how to handle these generally, I think it's typically in an arbitrary section before Problems)
The "Patches" section in Xenoblade Chronicles is something like this. We could adopt this as template (and then add this in Project:Wiki Conventions) mbc07 (talk)

...please add other suggestions...

Issue Tracker Alignment

We need to scan through the Dolphin Issue Tracker and align articles here with issues. Oldest issue needing alignment: issue 267.

Config Template

  • Improve config documentation on Template page.
  • Update to generate additional error categories (non-on/off values, missing notes, etc.) Kolano 09:18, 3 July 2011 (CEST)


  • Clean up publisher/release date info to indicate differing region releases more appropriately (see Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon)
  • Consider purging emulation irrelevant details.
  • Consider cleaning up info for developers (such as FPS, Rel modules, DTK ADPCM, Size, FPS...) Provide feedback here
    • I think it would be good if such useless information is removed as it could differ from user to user. --Endres 17:12, 31 July 2011 (CEST)
      • These details should not change user to user. Perhaps you were confused by FPS. It's not the emulated FPS, but the games hard-coded internal FPS. These details are mainly of interest to developers, but may also let us more easily identify issues shared across multiple titles. I'm not clear if an exact "size" can be easily established though, as such may be somewhat dependent on the specific disc image tools used (i.e. slightly different headers, etc may slightly effect the size).Kolano 19:48, 31 July 2011 (CEST)
  • Add more infobox options for pages that don't fit the usual molds. For example, System Menu and Broadband Adapter do not need compatibility, so they use the platforms template. And that means loosing out on details they could have. MayImilae 02:53, 24 July 2012 (CEST)

Regarding documentation of game-specific .ini-files

This thing needs to be discussed, so as to see what resources might be available to us (e.g. documentation from the devs) and what, if anything, we can do about it. It is a rather large part of Dolphin, and one that, if properly documented, can be extremely convenient to end-users. A great example of this would be a game like Klonoa, which for all intents and purposes works excellently, but that needs the "EuRGB60 Mode (PAL60)" option switched off to do so, something which most games do not need. In this case, it'd be great to have that option switched on in the game .ini, so that a user wouldn't have to open up the options dialog every single time he or she wants to play that one specific game (compare and contrast with Metroid Prime (GC), that needs "EFB to RAM" to work properly, and which has that option switched on by default in the game .ini).

This has been started at GameINI_Settings/Sandbox. Kolano (talk) 23:10, 17 December 2015 (CET)

Complete list of Dolphin hotkeys

There is apparently no comprehensive list anywhere of all the hotkeys that work in Dolphin. How do we take screenshots without going to the menu, for example? This wiki would be the perfect place for such a list. The only hotkey I know of is Alt-F5 to enable the Wii Remote. Flang 08:05, 23 July 2016 (CST)

In Dolphin, go to Options => Hotkey settings. Since most (if not all) of Dolphin Hotkeys can be user configured, I'm not sure if a list of hotkeys would work well... - mbc07 (talk) 18:51, 23 July 2016 (CEST)
Thank you for pointing me to the hotkeys menu in Dolphin. The way they are layed out in that menu is very confusing for new users like me - Apparently if a key is mapped like (!(LMENU | RMENU) & !(LSHIFT | RSHIFT) & !(LCONTROL | RCONTROL)) & `F1` - that means to press F1. I guess I still think it would be helpful to have a default list of hotkeys available on the wiki, but it's not a big deal. -Flang 08:53, 24 July 2016 (CST)
