This will be a lot at first, but once you get the hang of it, it is more simple than it looks.

Starting a Walkthrough

To start a walkthrough, please look to see if the game has already been added under title search by looking for the game by name.

  • If the game page is there but in red text, the page has not been created yet. Click on the red text to go to the page to begin creating it.
  • If the game page is not there, add the game page under the correct letter by clicking edit and then, following the same format, adding in the game's name, highlighting it, and then clicking the link icon in the text editor. A window will pop-up and all you need to do is press "Insert Link."
    • This will now add a red link for you to create.
  • Upon creating a new game page, select "Game Page Categories" from the dropdown on the text editor. Remove all the platforms that the game is not on, leaving only the ones it is.

Walkthrough Page Already Exists

  • Check to make sure that there are no red links as those are walkthroughs that are needed.
    • Some walkthrough pages have been made, but some are missing character walkthroughs.
    • Some I created just to add in the characters that are needed.
  • If there is blue text with or without a link, that means that the walkthrough already exists or is in progress.
    • If a walkthrough has already been completed and moved to the site, there will be an arrow after the character's name.
    • If the walkthrough is in progress or hasn't been moved yet, it will just be blue.

Character Page Doesn't Exists

Red text character name or no character name means that there is not a walkthrough for them.

  • If red text, click on the red text to go to the page to begin creating it.
  • If the character is not there, add the character's name clicking edit and then adding: [[Character Name]]. Then save.
    • This will now add a red link for you to create.
    • For example, Men of Yoshiwara: Kikuya has a release on all platforms except Mac and Playstation. You would delete these two categories.
  • Once you are on that game's page, please add in all known characters

Building a Walkthrough

Walkthrough Example - A visual example of a built walkthrough.

Loading in Walkthrough Basics

Select "Top Information" and press the button next to it.
Fill out to the best of your ability

Select "Chapter Section" and press the button next to it Remove whatever the game does NOT call the top of a new chapter and the parts of a new chapter.

  • Most games use "Chapter" and "Part." I have seen some use "Episode" and "Chapter."

Free-to-Play Parts

Free-to-play games may have a lesson/battle/ect for players to gain points and in-game money. Then, they may come across parts of the story that have checks that they have to pass using either their points or their money.

Avatar Challenge

When you need to buy an item, usually clothing, in order to continue reading the story, please use this to easily fill out information.

Select "Avatar Challenge" and press the button next to it. First Line
[ch#].[pt#] [Name] Challenge -

  • [ch#] - This is the chapter/episode/ect that you are on. Replace it with that information.
  • [pt#] - This is the part/chapter/ect that you are on. Replace it with that information.
  • [Name] Challenge - This is whatever the game calls the challenge. Replace [[Name]] with that information.[ch#].[pt#] [Name] Challenge – Need # [Charm/Beauty/Style] to continue

Second Line
Premium: [Item] ([How Much Added to Charm/Beauty/Style] +# ) – # [Premium currency name]

  • Premium: [Item] - This is the name of the item you buy with premium currency (the currency you usually buy with real money). Replace [[Item]] with that information.
  • [How Much Added to Charm/Beauty/Style] - This is what the game calls the points the item will add to your overall total. Replace the whole line to that name.
  • +# - The # is the number of points the item raises you.
  • # [Premium currency name] - Replace # with the amount of premium currency it takes and [Premium currency name] with the name the game calls the premium currency.

Third Line
Normal: [Item] ([How Much Added to Charm/Beauty/Style] +# ) – # [Free currency name]

  • Follows the same way as above but fill out with Normal item information.
Points Challenge

When you need to have a certain amount of points in order to continue reading the story, please use this to easily fill out information.

[ch#].[pt#] [Name] Challenge – Need # [Charm/Beauty/Style] to continue

  • [ch#] - This is the chapter/episode/ect that you are on. Replace it with that information.
  • [pt#] - This is the part/chapter/ect that you are on. Replace it with that information.
  • [Name] Challenge - This is whatever the game calls the challenge. Replace [[Name]] with that information.
  • # - Replace # with the amount of points it takes to pass the challenge
  • [Charm/Beauty/Style] This is what the game calls the points the item will add to your overall total. Replace the whole line to that name.
