Welcome to Game Tech Wiki!

Gtw.png

The goal of Game Tech Wiki is to collect detailed technical information on everything related to gaming. This includes repair and modification guides, high-resolution images and documentation of hardware components, programming information, and general information articles (cleaning, tools, displays, etc.). All gaming hardware belongs on the wiki: game consoles and accessories, old gaming computers, and even Tiger Handhelds.

This is the new home of Retro Consoles Wiki. We are currently in the process of transferring content from the old wiki to this one.

How you can help

Game Tech Wiki needs your help! Everyone is invited to contribute content to the wiki to help us reach our goal, even if you have no technical knowledge. Here are some ways you can help the wiki grow:

Non-technical

  • General console or manufacturer information
  • Other gaming-related articles
    • Although the focus of the wiki is hardware, there's nothing wrong with adding general gaming articles about specific games or genres. A great example of this is the article on Shmups.
  • High-res photos of hardware
    • This includes circuit boards (motherboards, power boards, controller boards, etc.), casings, and other components. For circuit boards, an ideal photo will have all text on the board be legible. If this is not easily accomplished, multiple photos which focus on certain sections of a particular board can be used. When adding these photos to the site, please include the revision of the board in the file name and description. For an example of board photos, see Sega Genesis Hardware.

Technical

  • Mods and Repairs
    • The core content of the wiki is modifications and repairs made to gaming hardware. If you have performed a particular mod/repair, you may want to consider writing a guide on this wiki, in as much or as little detail as you want. Alternatively, if you know of a quality guide for a mod/repair, please add links to the respective console pages.
