Quick tip for uploading sprites

It would be a better idea to upload sprites of things like in-game items as single complete sheets rather than separate images, because we have a template that can crop them as necessary with the right parameters here. It helps keep file clutter down. The files you can find in this category should serve as some examples. --SorachiJirachi (talk) 14:12, 23 December 2021 (EST)


When creating new omnis for games, check to make sure the game has any localisations (usually if the game page has multiple regional title screens) or non-Sega versions, and add "comparisonspage=yes" if they do. Platformers, RPGs and the like are likely to have maps, so add "mapspage=yes" for those too.

Also, there's no need to use "no" for omni parameters - the parameters only look for "yes" to add links, so not having the parameters there at all is just as effective. --SorachiJirachi (talk) 12:44, 24 August 2022 (EDT)

Bugs Bunny in Double Trouble

Since you've taken care of that game, do you think you could replace this file with a better screenshot in PNG? This one was cropped and saved as a JPEG for some reason. The extension will also need changing to PNG when you do so. --SorachiJirachi (talk) 18:48, 13 January 2023 (EST)

Sure, I uploaded it here: https://i.imgur.com/XEcQXrS.png It's for the Genesis version and not the SNES like the old screenshot (naturally).
I can't login to RetroCDN, which maybe you or another admin can help me with. It tells me: "Auto-creation of a local account failed: You have not specified a valid username." It looks like it auto-made an account for me there when I made my Sega Retro account (same creation time), but my Sega Retro password doesn't work there. Trying the "Forgot my password" thing says the account doesn't exist, but it also doesn't make me create a new account with the same name because the account already exists. So it sounds like my account is in limbo, but maybe there's some flag that can be changed that would activate it. Same problem with NEC Retro as well. I could probably just create a different account, but of course, I'd prefer to have the same user name across all the sites.

Ohhhhhh, login issue? In that case, I'll pass it on to an admin and see what we can do about it. I'll also upload the screenshot to the CDN on your behalf for the time being. --SorachiJirachi (talk) 12:50, 14 January 2023 (EST)
