Extensions wishlist

Not quite the same, but a nice alternative to uploading multiple files without UploadLocal? - Scarred Sun (talk) 07:51, 4 November 2017 (CDT)
It doesn't have the benefit of compression, but could be useful nonetheless. - Hivebrain (talk) 21:56, 4 November 2017 (CDT)
Extension:MultiUpload might work. - Hivebrain (talk) 14:33, 22 November 2019 (EST)
  • OBJ or some other 3D object viewer (with PNG thumbnails). Maybe 3DAlloy. Something that supports textured models would be better (for example, loading the model and texture files from a single zip file).
  • Something that can read bytes from uploaded files.
  • Something that can view the contents of zip/7z files ("ZipHandler").
I'm imagining the file page for a zip contains a list of all its files, each of which has its own file page and can be viewed/downloaded individually (e.g. ""). Also thumbnails for contained files ("").
  • Sync looks like a good way to share templates between wikis. From what I can tell it would only needed to be installed on Retro CDN.
  • External Data so we can share info stored in Cargo tables.
  • PSD thumbnails. PSDs contain layer information that gets lost when converted and uploaded as PNGs. Maybe thumbnails for other formats too, such as TIF. PagedTiffHandler would work.
  • RTF/DOC/DOCX/PPT thumbnails.
  • Something to bulk copy files from here to Retro CDN (by category for example).
  • Something to bulk delete pages/files (by category for example). Extension:DeleteBatch might be good if it works on files.
  • FileImporter and FileExporter
  • More video formats for TimedMediaHandler: MKV, AVI, FLV etc.
  • DjVu thumbnails. Apparently possible.


To do list

Portable programs needed

Problem emulators

  • A-Saturn - needs a BIOS file I can't find
  • Xe - needs GTK+
  • Daphne - needs some kind of video files
    • Looking up "Daphne for dummies" may be a pleasure
  • Makaron - seems to require Xbox 360 controller
    • To use a keyboard: change "X360PAD.dll" to "MakaronKEY.dll", under "[PortA]" in "Maple.ini"
  • Gearsystem - missing component
  • SSE - doesn't detect BIOS
  • Retrocade - couldn't get it to detect roms
  • Virtua - uses nonstandard rom set
