This page explains the basics you should know before uploading files to this wiki.

File formats

Currently you can only upload pictures in the following formats:

File format Accepted extension
Portable Network Graphics *.png
Graphics Interchange Format *.gif
JPEG *.jpg *.jpeg
Note that *.png is preferred, since it is lossless, even when compressed, and has an alpha-channel for transparency (So you can make the background disappear)

(Dis)Advantages of the formats

This should give you a briev overview of the advantages and disadvantages of the file formats.

Portable Network Graphics

PNG was created as an improved and non-patented replacement for the outdated GIF. PNG offers a better compression, more features and is in many instances more suitable than GIF.
Pro Con
  • lossless
  • can be losslessly compressed
  • has an alpha-channel for transparency
  • open format
  • ISO/IEC and IETF RFC standard
  • huge file size when not compressed

Graphics Interchange Format

GIF has nearly entirely been replaced by PNG, but is capable of animations.
Pro Con
  • can be animated
  • outdated by PNG
  • Not an official standard

JPEG

JPEG is a widely used method of lossy compression for digital images, mostly used in digital photography. It should be avoided since it is lossy. For some uses, like screenshots, it is the best choice however.
Pro Con
  • small files
  • ISO/IEC and ITU standard
  • lossy format

File names

Basicly you can name your files however you like. But make sure they meet the following:

  1. The file name should give you a brief idea what this file contains
  2. If the file belongs to a certain game, make sure the filename starts with the game's acronym (see table below), devided by an underscore _ from the rest of the filename.
  3. Note that the wiki only accepts letters (a-Z), numbers (0-9) and some special characters (- and _)
