Overview

This template is used in game pages. If you are creating a new page, you must include only basic info and emulation related details. Some tags also need some rules, listed below:

  • |image = must have the thumbnail size tag based on software type. We use 300px size for GameCube and Wii games, 350px size for Wii Channels screenshots and 160px size for WiiWare titles. If you image doesn't resize, only add some garbage in the end of tag such as the image name (for example [[File:FlingSmash.jpg‎|300px|FlingSmash]]). Cover preference order would be: US NTSC, UK PAL, Other PAL, JP, Other.
  • |developer = must include only the developer of Dolphin emulated platforms (for example, the Playstation 2 and Xbox version of Mortal Kombat Armageddon was developed by Midway but the Wii version was developed by Just Games Interactive, so in this case we include only Just Games Interactive).
  • |publisher = and |released = must use the VGrelease template (for example, on Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins Of The Moon, the publisher tag use {{vgrelease|JP=Namco Bandai Games|NA=Xseed Games|EU=Rising Star Games}} and released tag use {{vgrelease|JP=January 22, 2009|NA=March 16, 2010|EU=March 19, 2010}}). For the releases, list them in chronological order, not alphabetical order of region.

The template will auto-generate categories for each genre, and game play mode listed.
