Revision as of 02:56, 30 September 2005

You can fill in and add the following code into an article in order to generate a standardized "infobox":

{{gameinfo| name = 
|developer = 
|released = 
|updated = 
|status = 
|licensing = 
|language = 
|platforms = 
|genre = 
|interface = 
|site = 
}}

Not all of the fields need to be filled in, but all of them should be included. Those that are not filled in will display as blanks on the infobox.

Example

{{gameinfo| name = NetHack
|developer = [[The NetHack Dev Team]]
|released = 1987
|updated = 3.4.3 on Month 1st, 2003
|status = [[Stable]] 
|licensing = open source
|language = [[C]]
|platforms = Amiga, Atari, Linux, Mac, Msdos, OS/2, Windows, Windows CE
|genre = [[Fantasy]]
|interface = [[Graphical tiles]], [[ASCII]], Keyboard, limited mouse
|site = http://www.nethack.org/
}}

...will add this box:

NetHack

Influences {{{influences}}}

Genre Issue

The "genre" field isn't displayed - at least on my system (WinXP, FireFox 1.5) --Copx 22:54, 29 Sep 2005 (CEST)

I see that the 'genre' and 'feature' rows are commented in the template; is there any reason for this??? --Slash 23:02, 29 Sep 2005 (CEST)

They are hiding, and the instructions here are now outdated. They're easier to restore (if need be) if they're commented out. John Shedletsky and R brought up some points for and against them, so I'll be removing features and changing genre to theme. I'll also add influences and length.
