Here is a list of stuff that needs doing on the wiki. Feel free to add anything you feel that needs to be done and move items that have been completed to the "Completed" section below.



  • Create page documenting the various current Wiki conventions (i.e. title naming, appropriate config entries, Version compatibility handling, rating templates use, revision template use, etc.). Expose the page in appropriate locations (main page, comment on list pages, etc).


  • Clean up lists by adding missing information
  • Add orphaned or games not in the lists into the list pages.
  • Better system for managing the Gamecube games lists need to be done as finding games like Zelda could be under (The legend of / Legend of / Zelda)
    • I'm fairly sure existing naming conventions ensure this isn't the case, though we may need to do a better job of documenting them:Kolano 01:27, 2 April 2011 (CEST)
      • Page names should align with the localized English title or, when Japan-exclusive, their rōmaji transliterations
        • Unclear if there are any Euro exclusive titles that aren't accounted for by this, I seem to recall a French only game or two.
      • Page names should start with "The" if the title does
      • List entries should move "The" to the end of their title section (i.e. "The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker" becomes "Legend of Zelda, The: The Wind Waker")
  • Consider purging "Tested on Revision" from list pages. Please provide feedback here.
    • I'm not clear the need to list this on the list pages. They are rarely maintained in alignment with the game page, and the compatibility ratings (which are already the root cause of needing to split up the list pages) serve the purpose of providing high level compatibility info. If one needs to know specific version details, the specific game pages seem more appropriate.Kolano 01:27, 2 April 2011 (CEST)
  • Work out means of fixing issue requiring list pages to be split into multiple templates. This is due to use of the ratings template, the current Wiki server can't handle compiling the large number of templates used on the list pages.
    • I think we might work around this by migrating most of the list page content into a bigger version of the ratings template. Then revise the ratings template to either output a detail of a requested game or a complete list of it's included games. Each list page would include the template in list mode, while each game page would include it (possibly a few times) to reference it's rating, genre, region details. I'm hoping that since each game page would only need to call the template a few times and the list list pages would display just a single template, such would enable a consolidated list for each platform. This would also ensure alignment with shared game details beyond rating.Kolano 07:39, 4 April 2011 (CEST)


  • Clean up config entries post Config template revisions to include an up to date list of parameters. Recent Config template changed strings to be as is in current Dolphin revision:
    • |recompiler=JIT, JITiL or interpreter must be changed to the new |cpuengine=JIT, JITiL or interpreter. (relevant pages, currently 448)
    • |realxfb=on must be changed to the new |xfb=real (now both real and virtual XFB options are radio buttons on emulator). (relevant pages, currently 441)
  • Improve config documentation on Template page and update config sections to only use filled parameters.


  • 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.
  • Clean up Input methods related to other platforms not emulated by Dolphin.


  • Add developer/publisher categories
  • Add more complete set of genre categories
    • Replace genres with genre category links

To Do List

  • List other needed to do


Below is listed only what was done last month. You can search the archive for what was done since To Do list was created.


  • |graphicsplugin=OpenGL, DX9 or DX11 must be changed to the new |gfxbackend=OpenGL, DX9 or DX11 because Dolphin plugins has been mergered into the main executable.(Done by Foso - 31 March 2011).
  • |safetexturecache=Safe, Normal or Fast must be changed to the new |accuratetexturecache=Safe, Normal or Fast. (Done by Foso - 31 March 2011).
  • |dspplugin=HLE, LLE recompiler or LLE interpreter must be changed to the new |dspengine=HLE, LLE recompiler or LLE interpreter because Dolphin plugins has been mergered into the main executable. (Done by Foso - 1 April 2011).


  • Media cleanup because media can be presumed from category (Done by Foso - 30 March 2011).
  • Purge Non-Dolphin emulated platforms from platform entries, or completely remove platforms because platform can be presumed from category (Done by Foso - 31 March 2011).

To Do List

  • Split "Completed" section entries done more than one month ago in an separate page to maintain organization. (Done by Jhonn - 3 April 2011).
