Welcome[edit source]

Hi, welcome to BootlegGames Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the Aladdin III page.

Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help with anything! -- Kurashi Nikkeru (Talk) 18:54, June 18, 2010

Okay...Sorry..

My account talk page response:[edit source]

I try my best to follow those rules better. Chowdit1 (talk) 06:25, June 20, 2013 (UTC)

I think I meant to say "rules", but I didn't type it in. Chowdit1 (talk) 20:20, July 7, 2013 (UTC)

Can I put up a page of the Bootleg Flash Cart, "GB USB smart card"?[edit source]

Would you let me do so? Yes, it is a bootleg cartridge, I not completely aware if so, because it is unable to disassemble, but I can notice alot details showing it is. So the only thing I can't find out is the chips. Chowdit1 (talk) 09:51, June 21, 2013 (UTC)

So those NES cartridges of Somari were Reproduction Carts?[edit source]

Is the official is only for Famicom? Chowdit1 (talk) 20:30, July 7, 2013 (UTC)

About my Wikia page (Mario Pirate Hacks)[edit source]

Hi. I created the page "Mario Pirate Hacks" and I just want to say that I don't want you or anyone else deleting my photos, separating the cartridge and screenshots, or anything else. Is it really necessary and why does it concern you? --Pacman80 (talk) 15:02, July 26, 2013 (UTC)Pacman80

I have no plan to delete the page nor delete picture. Its just a whole MESS with all the pictures of cartridges and gameplay in a gallery.

Making a slideshow or slider with all pics of the carts and another one for gameplay OR yet one for each mario hacks would look much better than a page full of pic. MLJY (talk) 15:23, July 26, 2013 (UTC)

Ok, I am currently working on separating them from each other and making them as slide shows.

Sorry about that image problem. I'm new here, and I'm not even 14. Galaxyman83

Hello, I tried to restore the King of Fighters 97 page from what a troll did. I can't get the pics and formatting so I did the best I could. if you know how to restore from an earlier revision with all the correct formatting and whatnot, it would be appreciated!--71.190.46.121 00:11, March 24, 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for fixing the page! 9000 tnx appreciated!! --71.190.46.121 04:22, March 25, 2014 (UTC)

Hey, not a problem.  Glad someone at least took notice of my edits of that page.

Now that I've played the game a few times and beaten it completely (very short), I will start trying to add more.  I saw it was a stub, but it's actually pretty stand-out for a bootleg.

Add a page question[edit source]

Hi, i just spent a long time trying to add a page and published it, but im not seeing that it exist. I their a period of time before the post is public or did I waste my time? [unsigned, Paulweeze]

Hey, you probably did something wrong while pulbishing it, since there have been no new page from you. Once you publish a new page, it'll appear instantly on the activity log and the wiki. MLJY (talk) 19:39, May 11, 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, Ill probably take a break before another attempt at it. I clicked add page, put in a title and template, added photos, put in an extensive amount of text (which i wont be able to emulate, no pun intended lol) and clicked publish. Because i had an external link, it asked me to put the captcha in and then it just sat there. Anything i am missing? [unsigned, Paulweeze]

Looks like you did everything right, guess it was a problem with the captcha or wikia. Sometimes you do need to write captcha and/or preview the article before publishing it (or stuff like that). In case you're scared of loosing everything, I suggest you to copy/paste your article to Notepad (or whatever) just to have a backup if wikia messes up. We're sad that you couldn't contribute. NOTE: sometimes wikia may be slow to apply changes! MLJY (talk) 19:50, May 11, 2014 (UTC)

Looks like that was the problem, now my page should be up! Hope you guys will enjoy my post as I enjoy yours!  [unsigned, Paulweeze]

Hola y lo siento por el RETRASO de la Respuesta, Pero No los Cambios Wikia Realizo toma estoy Feliz De Que here Hacen Las Personas Que Hacen this Errores Activos y Corregir veo Que Muchos juegos CARECEN de Capturas si pudieran me gustaria Poner Un poco una Ellos algunos adj JUEGOS especialmente nes, Pero el Código eS un poco confuso para colocar la Foto O INCLUSO uN ENLACE una ONU Modo de juego. Lo siento por el Inglés es que soy español http://bootleggames.wikia.com/wiki/User:Necrocoffenecro cafetería [Necrocoffe, 2016.12.25]

Hi, sorry I'm not too sure I understand what you mea. Google translate doesn't help, sadly. If I understand right, you want to place photos on articles? You can use the gallery tool or add a file using Photo. Both are on the right side of the screen and are fairly easy to use. if that helps. Sorry if I missed the point and the delayed reply.

Spica[edit source]

Other than the Famicom carts sold in Australia by Sachen, what other Spica Famicom carts are there that you know of?

Well these Spica cart are their only Famicom release I know of, sure they aren't totally *responsible* for those but they had "SPICA" printed on the cover, etc. So it's real deal between Sachen and Spica. MLJY (talk) 18:33, July 10, 2017 (UTC)

I suspect the carts are actually Sachen carts with new logos on them. I'll find out. Anyways, I suspect Spica, Video Deon, and Super Vision, were all the same company of sorts.

Can you make me as bureaucrat?[edit source]

I love this wiki very much. I'm now most active. Please, make me as bureaucrat, please. Grischasv (talk) 16:40, November 12, 2017 (UTC)

Accolade[edit source]

May I want to edit the Accolade page! --73.184.6.244 03:17, January 12, 2018 (UTC)

Nice[edit source]

Thank you for deleting that unused redirect. There's more under candidates for deletion. Mumbo Jumbo II (talk)

Sonic 2 CENSOR Prototype[edit source]

Does the Sonic 2 CENSOR Prototype count as a bootleg? It was sold without SEGA's permission and it was also a prototype, similar to the Simon Wai Prototype. [Unsigned, User:Actual_AdvancedPlayer, 2019-04-19]

It doesn't suit the wiki. Almost every licensed title was pirated at a point and they don't need to have wiki pages. Also, there's no proof that the said prototype circulated as cartridges in Asia, unlike Wai's prototype (which also doesn't deserve to have its article here, but it's slightly so more notable because it is one of the only prototype that got a physical release courtesy of some Taiwanese manufacturer).

Front page footer[edit source]

Hello. I'd like to add this wiki to the General Games footer, but the front page is locked. Would it be possible for you to add it? Just add {{w:FooterGeneralGames}} to the bottom of the front page. Welcome to your doom! 23:53, July 8, 2019 (UTC)


Admin Request[edit source]

Hey MLJY, I want to edit WHOLE PROTECTED pages.

I want to be an admin.

Can I become an admin?

Do you have a bureaucrat?

ZiadElwan61 (talk)


Hello !, I have problems to be able to create a table properly, I cannot find how to center the text so that it is in the middle of the table. I also can't find how to create a reference properly (I set the tag, not the reference: Ex. Philko article) Where can I find help for this?

New Wiki Manager introduction[edit source]

References[edit source]

I am interested in adding a references section to the Gowin page, but I am not sure if I formatted it in a way that is consistent with other pages on the wiki. Is there a specific way references sections need to be formatted, or are ordinary numbered lists with links good enough? [Unsigned, ElkFish 2020-02-08]

If you want to add references throughout the text (the superscript indices next to some important sentence), use <ref> and its associated closing tag </ref>. You can then either put a straight URL in between or you can make it nice by including it in between these: [ ]. E.g. [http://bootleg.games/ BootlegGames Wiki main site] which results in: BootlegGames Wiki main site. At the end of the article, you must include, below the Reference section the following tag: <references/> otherwise you'll get a huge error on the bottom of the page. The wiki engine will automatically list the references in order. If you just want to provide general reference links for the whole article, you can just list them above the references/ tag, without numbering them. Or you can make another section named, for example, external link, and list them below, again unumbered. EDIT: a good example: J.Y._Company (check the source for better understanding of the references tag thing) --MLJY (talk) 23:09, February 8, 2020 (UTC)

Hello, I'm TreyHackz1010, and I'm happy to join and fix this wiki. It's being great to see the stuff made by small or single developers

Mario DX[edit source]

If I can find no more infomation besides the wiki and dumping page, what should I do?

--SuperfishMEMZ, an ABORSP member (talk) 03:09, May 10, 2020 (UTC)

I don't get your point. The guidelines are fairly clear regarding ROMs on the wiki. MLJY (talk) 10:34, May 10, 2020 (UTC)


I mean, there are some content undocumented on the page, but documented on the dumping page. 

--SuperfishMEMZ, an ABORSP member (talk) 11:59, May 10, 2020 (UTC)

Then you can re-write it here but you should not mention anything that relates to ROM images. This is not the purpose of the BGW. MLJY (talk) 12:29, May 10, 2020 (UTC)

Category:Unlicensed original games[edit source]

Hi, why did you delete this category? I intended to use it for original games, per classification given in Bootleg Games (there are already the categories "Hacks" and "Ports").

This category was not properly named and does not appear to bring any usefulness to the wiki. The categories will be redone from zero at some later time so don't spend too much time making news. MLJY (talk) 22:33, June 21, 2020 (UTC)

I gotta ask...[edit source]

Why are you removing the external links of reviews? Blaze McCartney (talk) 06:24, June 21, 2020 (UTC)

Can you be more specific? I have not removed any review recently. I did remove reviews that were not neutral or had annoying commentaries a while ago. These removals were made after a decision of the staff, the wiki goal is not to advertise reviewers. If you have an example of a review channel that you think fits with the guidelines of the BGW, you could poll the BGW staff & frequent editors on the BGC forum (a link is given on the front page).
