Image Section

First off, thanks to Md5 for adding this. The screenshots add some color. ;)

Secondly, this causes certain games that we don't have support for (ie. Escape from Monkey Island, Broken Sword 3, etc.) to have {{{Image}}} in this template. I don't know how everyone else feels about this, but it doesn't exactly look right to see that written there. Maybe we could just put something like "Not Supported in ScummVM" in the image place? -Clone2727 22:19, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

I've fixed it. You needed a pipe ("|") at the end of image: {{{image|}}} or {{{image|foo bar}}}

The stuff after the pipe will be substituted if the image variable is undefined.

Thanks a lot! -Clone2727 01:05, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

Bizarreness: Space_Quest is working, but not Space_Quest_II for some reason. Huh?

--dsymonds 01:10, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

It's working here. -Clone2727 01:32, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

Working fine now, much easier and neater solution than the ugly if cases used by wikipedia!

Game data files

Should we add a "Game data files" entry here, pointing to the relevant entry in the "Datafiles" page? --Md5 19:24, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

Added the datafiles entry, as discussed with clone2727 Should we add an entry for screenshots (pointing to the screenshot page) or just leave them as they are? --Md5 23:51, 3 April 2007 (CEST)

The "PAGENAMEE" variable was no typo, as it returns "Page_name" (which is what we want for anchors). Variable "PAGENAME" returns "Page name" which is not right, but for some reason it works (wiki is adding underscores automatically, but it doesn't mean it's a correct way of creating links). For further info, check here --Md5 05:49, 5 April 2007 (CEST)

Ah, I didn't know this. PAGENAMEE is used to preserve special characters. -Clone2727 13:02, 5 April 2007 (CEST)

Publisher now Distributor

Changed Publisher to Distributor. We list all distributors, even those that distribute for the actual publishers. -- Lightkey 21:08, 21 June 2008 (CEST)

Well great, mass-edits ahoy! Spoke with Herrn Sandulenko and I will add Publisher again, leaving both to fill out. -- Lightkey 21:29, 21 June 2008 (CEST)
