How to use this sample layout:

  • Copy and paste the code from this page into a new game article.
  • Code can be copied using the edit link for this page.
  • Rename sections and names where appropriate, and delete the first and last line of code.
  • Choose an appropriate category, which will normally be [[Category:Game]] and [[Category:Windows]].
  • Delete empty headers.

No genre, game-type or game content information

The reason we have decided to not include genre on this wiki can be found in the Style Policy page. Game content information should also be kept to a minimal. The focus of the wiki is to provide information about how to fix games, rather than the content of games.
