Image categorisation[edit]

When uploading images, please make sure to categorise them using the correct image categories and the guide-specific category, i.e. [[Category:Bubble Trouble: Golly! Ghost! 2 images]]. Please see our image policy for more details. Thanks for helping to keep our images neat! — WarioTalk 14:46, 11 April 2015 (UTC)

Table of Contents[edit]

Hey there, just wanted to point out that everything you're posting in the Table of Contents should be in their own separate pages; all the ToC does is hold links to these pages. It looks like you're going for a layout like the ones Namcorules usually does, so just look at one of his guides for an example. Thanks for your hard work! :) --WarioTalk 14:46, 11 April 2015 (UTC)

Cutie Q[edit]

Your request for help on E-Wario's page was not clear.

  • Do you need help uploading images?
  • What gradient sprites are you referring to?

Do you by any chance mean something like the ones on this page? --WarioTalk 02:28, 11 May 2015 (UTC)

Marvel Land[edit]

As the original creator of the guide for this game, I feel that I must ask you: where did you get the information that it is not, like I believed it to be, Namco's last game of the 1980s? Both the Japanese and US versions of it feature the text "© 1989 NAMCO, ALL RIGHTS RESERVED" on their title screens (meaning that they are understandably listed under that year in MAME, along with both The International Arcade Museum and System 16), but I do not wish to undo your recent edits to the guide (and that of Dangerous Seed) in case this information is actually correct. Namcorules (talk) 11:22, 2 July 2018 (UTC)

The English and Japanese Wikipedia pages, and the Arcade History Database all state that Dangerous Seed was released in December 1989. Marvel Land, despite the claims by several sites to be released in 1989, was released in January 1990. A lot of those older arcade games tend to get the release date wrong as usually those title screens were done early in development; an example of which is Darius, which despite saying "© TAITO CORPORATION 1986, ALL RIGHTS RESERVED" on the title screen, it was actually released in February 1987. The Japanese Wikipedia page for Marvel Land and even the PS1 Namco Museum series all state that Marvel Land was released in 1990. Even the promo flyer for the game states "© 1990 NAMCO, ALL RIGHTS RESERVED" at the bottom. Namcokid47 (talk) 02:04, 5 July 2018 (UTC)


With regards to your edit on the Getting Started page of Akkanvader yesterday, when you stated the Darius series (the first two titles of which are not yet on here) did not end in 1994, and Taito Corporation had announced a new one only a few months ago, I had been writing in the context of the time that the game was created; after all, G-Darius (1997), Darius Burst (2009), and Darius Burst - Another Chronicle (2010), all three of which are also not yet on here, did not exist in 1995. I guess I also should have remembered your above reply to the last question I asked you on here, where you said that even though the original Darius has the text of "© TAITO CORPORATION 1986, ALL RIGHTS RESERVED" on its title screen, its cabinets were not out until February 1987.
