To Do

  • Add "Resolution" setting for titles like Mega Man, which are sensitive to particular resolutions.
  • Fix alternate row shading. Unfortunately the nested if's/tables make this complex.
  • Add pop-up descriptions to config settings
  • Address bolding of sections beyond first shown /wo including excessive white-space
    • The wiki will apparently only appropriately parse "===" enclosed titles as titles if line feeds occur between each section outside of the if's. This unfortunately inserts excess white-space in cases where no sections are shown. Attempted corrections that fail include:
      • Adding white-space to the beginning/ends of sections within ifs
      • Adding white-space between sections via a secondary set of ifs

19121 rollback

I understand a desire to not impact current pages, but we will need to deal with ongoing config changes. We probably need to address such in a manner that preserves old options as input, but displays new options as output.Kolano 04:01, 21 June 2011 (CEST)

I absolutely 100% agree that we will need to add new parameters to this template over time -- but simply removing and breaking existing parameters that are still in use on many articles is poor practice. This is why I reverted it (for now). The change also broke the feature I added that categorizes articles in need of some parameter updates (see Category:Pages with deprecated config template parameters).

Sorry for the troubles that was caused, the 19121 edit wasn't intended to cause problems, but a merge error in my text editor broke many things... I'll commit it again when I figure out what is going on on my editor, and after this the template will be as was on 19121 but without the compatibility issues and without breaking any new introduced features...

Virtual EFB

I have a quick question, and don't really know where to go with it. In r7626, and assuming beyond, there are some new options. Instead of EFB copies to ram/texture, it has checkboxes, "Virtual" and "Ram". There is nothing in the TODO on how to do this. How should this be shown? Should I just wait for the TODO to be updated?

22715 rollback

This appears to have broken the config template on many pages. Some attributes were in the page source, but were not showing up on the rendered page (something that, by my understanding, we're trying to avoid). Many pages had a Graphics heading with no entries. Feel free to undo my undo if there's a bigger project going on here that I'm not aware of. --Keller999 09:02, 11 August 2011 (CEST)

I'm reverting it back, the Native Mipmaps and Accurate Texture Cache options doesn't exist anymore on Dolphin, so I commented out these options on template source until we think in a solution (mantaining these options for reference in older revisions or dropping it at all).

Jhonn (or anyone up for some template fiddling), if you refer to the ratings template you'll see a method of generating categories for erroneous pages. I'd advise we revise the template to handle these options similarly until pages using them can be cleaned up.Kolano 03:12, 12 August 2011 (CEST)
Just as a suggestion, keeping references for older revisions *only* when the games calls for it, meaning by this that the main pages, for example config and performance, should always be kept with cutting edge revisions and only when the game specifically calls for it, older revisions should be mentioned specifically on X game page needing those, of course this calls for a user looking to use X revision of dolphin for his favorite game.Otomo 18:39, 12 August 2011 (CEST)
