Final Fantasy 3 Dogas Manor

I have been playing this on my Nintendo ds and have followed the walk through. When I reached Dogas Manor and entered,the waalk through says I should run into a cut scene and yet nothing happens.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Johnwayne19 (talkcontribs) .

Could I "re-edit" a page which hasn't been edited for a long time?

I want to "re-edit" the Ratatouille game. The game's walkthrough is kinda too simple (not many useful details), not many images,... and it hasn't been edited for a long time - 4 years... So may I have the permission to re-edit it? Thanks!

P/s: I really appreciate the first editors and what they've done. --James Sunderland (talk) 04:09, 23 January 2016 (UTC)

Adding Pictures to Controller Templates

Is it possible for me to add more buttons and directional inputs to the existing controller templates? I noticed that some of them are missing diagonals for D-pads or rotations for analog sticks. Antwan (talk) 14:33, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

Kind of curious what you need diagonal D-pad inputs for? They're not easy to represent. You could either do something like Right dpad+Down dpad ( {{nes|Right|Dpad}}{{plus}}{{nes|Down|Dpad}} ) or ( {{cade|DR}} ). And what do you mean by rotations for analog sticks? Like rolling the stick 360 degrees? It's not for analog sticks, but we have ( {{cade|360}} ); {{cade}} is mostly used for fighting games. Procyon 21:19, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
The game I'm writing a guide for doesn't use the analog sticks for play, only the D-pad and there are moves that use diagonals. I was thinking of using something like down and right together, but I feared that people would misinterpret that as "press down, then right" instead of "press down-right". Antwan (talk) 00:15, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
Would you consider using the {{cade}} template for those directions? I know it's not very d-pad looking, but it does remove the ambiguity. I don't know if you need quarter or half circles as well, but they're provided, mostly because of Street Fighter games. If that doesn't suit your needs, let me know, we'll figure something out. Procyon 03:01, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
That's fine, I'll go with that then for now. Thank you. Antwan (talk) 04:49, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

Whale broken?

I've been using the Whale skin ever since it was the default, but now I'm having problems. The show TOC button in the Header Nav and Footer Nav usually isn't appearing. The preferences page is also placing everything in one long line instead of using the tabs. Is this Whale's problem or my computer/browser's problem? In the mean time, I'm trying out Dolphin. --Flufftailer (talk) 02:50, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

Hi Flufftailer, Prod (talk · contribs) recently pushed a new version of MediaWiki to the site, and while we extensively tested out Dolphin, we didn't really give Whale a thorough check. I'll alert him to the issue, thanks for bringing it to our attention. Procyon 03:01, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

Please try clearing your browser cache, since you may be getting some of the old js/css. There are a few bugs in the whale skin, but Show/Hide should be working properly. -- Prod (talk) 03:20, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

I signed out and cleared my browser cache. Initially pages don't display the show button, but if I refresh the page, the show button appears and stays there if I come back. This is probably a my side problem. However, while you're fixing bugs, I just want to point out that the Go button has been sitting on the Search button for months. --Flufftailer (talk) 22:22, 29 January 2016 (UTC)
Because of the new way 1.26 loads things, sometimes it takes a second for all the javascript to load/run, so the show/hide links don't show up until the end.
I'll take a look at the go button, let me know if you notice any other issues. Thanks for the report! -- Prod (talk) 22:56, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

Edits not registering

So I was trying to edit this [[Pokémon X and Y/Species Strategies (Generation 1 Families)|this page]], but my edit simply fails to show up. I think it may be due to too much data in one page, or some odd bug with session data? I've tried to make several test edits, but to no avail either. T.testLP(talk) 16:47, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

Is this still the case TTLP? I see your edits just fine. Or at least I think I do, assuming what's in RC is everything you've tried to do so far. This could be a browser cache issue, since we recently updated to the latest MediaWiki. Try a few different browsers if you can, and let us know if you're still having a problem. Procyon 17:11, 29 January 2016 (UTC)
Your edits are appearing on Pokémon X and Y/Species Strategies (Generation I Families). It's the letter "I" rather than the number "1". Perhaps there's a misspelled inbound link somewhere? --Sigma 7 (talk) 17:20, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

Oh holy crap my edits just suddenly appeared out of nowhere. I suspect it may be a weird browser cache bug, because they weren't showing it at all. Sorry for all the postsT.testLP(talk) 19:08, 29 January 2016 (UTC)
