Discussion, ideas, brainstormings goes here[edit]

No hurry this rebuilding take days, weeks or more in the way i see, at this day (october 7 2017) the emulation frontpage and talk pages has been splitted and cleaned up completly, the reason for this carnage is because i think is better to start from scratch without any restriction in how are going to look and his purposes, there are a lot fo details needed to be mentioned but this is just an introductory explain of the discussion that goes under this line, feel free to join the party by giving your ideas and oppinions and help to solve the problems

Bringing back some moved texts[edit]

Probably there are lot of small sentences or sections that has been moved to the other pages... but could fit well here because are general concepts or could work as an introduction... the rule of gold now is this page is "noob oriented" and the others are "technically oriented", im not experienced in emulators so much to make this changes rewriting and moving texts back and forth and i fear to "break" something though--Sandungas (talk) 13:58, 7 October 2017 (UTC)

Wiki main page templates restructuring[edit]

I think we need a new template on main page for the game compatibility lists, actually right now are inside a "revere engineering" template and thats not right. Additionally we have the page OFW2CFW game compatibility list that doesnt fits in any other template... so in few words we need a Template:Game Compatibility Lists template for the main page... or something like that (any idea is welcome)--Sandungas (talk) 13:58, 7 October 2017 (UTC)

PS1, PS2, PSP Game compatibility lists in talk pages[edit]

There was some huge compatibility lists made by euss iirc that has been moved to Talk:PS1 Emulation, Talk:PS2 Emulation, and Talk:PSP Emulation. Was made long ago when there was no pages in wiki dedicated to games compatibility, now we are using a new style for game compatibility lists such PS2 Classics Emulator Compatibility List, we should try to move that info to the new format and creating all the needed new pages for the different "emulation enviroments" (i like how sounds this concept btw, is noob friendly, explicit, and accurate)--Sandungas (talk) 13:58, 7 October 2017 (UTC)
