Please note that it is rare to have complete documentation. There are almost always unknowns, holes in documentation. However, if every article with a "hole" or "unknown" was removed from the wiki, there would be very, very little information.

tl;dr: post everything that's potentially true no matter how much

Because you are horrible at using the wiki. You give the pages terrible names and forget that the wiki knows no newlines. Most of the pages I "delete" that you add are either already on the wiki, unrelated, or I make a new page with the same information but with an appropriate title and proper formatting.

If worst comes to worse, use <tt></tt> tags. Try prefixing page names with "Zelda 64:" or "Debug ROM" or whatever.

Oh right, I remember now. I did get all of the information on there formatted correctly eventually.

So how serious are people about the RAM map pages?

Before my laptop died I was working an a decompiler for the MQ Debug ROM, so I had addresses and partial signatures for a bunch of functions in the code (plus names for the ones that happened to include assert messages). The downside is that the average ROM hack isn't going to need most of these (vector dot product, addition, etc.), and for a lot of them I'm still not sure what they do.

I can try to resurrect the code from source control and post the functions I found so far, but if nobody would use them I'm not inclined to go to the trouble.

definitely. Everything we can use is something that's going to get us farther. No matter if it's a lot or a little. It's a start.

Thank you for your contributions, Euler. It always feels great when people other than I add content to the wiki :)

I created a new membergroup, "Wiki Contributor" for, as you have probably guessed, anybody who makes contributions to the wiki.

It seems that there is no article on Ocarina of Time's text format.  There is one for Majora's Mask, but no OoT.

EDIT: *groans* I'm so stupid :(
