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.

    Give this a nice update

    Project:Wiki Conventions Full of outdated information and typos, Simple-player... haha! Lucario (talk) 23:52, 17 January 2018 (CET)

    It'd be cool if the protected status was revoked. As things are now, the only people that protected status is blocking are the two of us. And it always seemed a little standoff-ish to have the page for the community's ideas of what the wiki's rules are be edit protected from having the community contribute to it. - Xerxes (talk) 00:36, 18 January 2018 (CET)
    I've rolled back the protection. Though we'll likely want to restore it post clean-up. Tread lightly.Kolano (talk) 00:41, 18 January 2018 (CET)
    User:Lucario should edit it first since he asked for it. I'll wait patiently and look at it tomorrow, so we don't clobber each other's edits. (Thanks for trusting us.) - Xerxes (talk) 01:00, 18 January 2018 (CET)
    Oh, maybe. Kolano scared me off like that. Now I've felt reluctant doing anything there. Lucario (talk) 01:47, 18 January 2018 (CET)
    Psychology is weird. Maybe someone should write a paper about this. - Xerxes (talk) 01:56, 18 January 2018 (CET)
    Heh... anyway, I have some changes I'd like submit to there. It's mostly about removing template how-to information outside of that page to their template docs, hopefully they don't mind. Lucario (talk) 03:08, 18 January 2018 (CET)

    Game Page Status Template

    This conversation has been moved to Template talk:Page Status. - Xerxes (talk) 20:20, 22 August 2017 (CEST)

    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)

    Went live out of the sandbox, it's now at GameINI. We may want to update template:Config somehow to inform user that they can update per game settings through INI? Lucario (talk) 02:02, 21 August 2017 (CEST)

    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)
