The new details extension that was added to the mkdocs.yml is a part of the PyMdown extensions package for the mkdocs material theme. found right here https://squidfunk.github.io/mkdocs-material/extensions/pymdown/

If you haven’t already, you should look through this https://squidfunk.github.io/mkdocs-material/specimen/ and this https://squidfunk.github.io/mkdocs-material/extensions/admonition/, very useful info.


#46

Thank you,

I will have another read.

When I get to a PC I will update the OP.

Fyi @esoptron im working on PPSSPP core page, although it will be of lower quality than your work.


#47

Hey man, I’m kind of late to the party since this topic started in May.

So the link you posted in the first part of the page is awesome. Where has all this documentation been?? hahaha.

I did see though that we got the new audio options added to gensplus, but it still doesn’t say the name for the genesis/md bios that allows you to see the licensed by sega screen.

I would love to add to this, I’m just not sure how.


#48

Haha hey skyhigh!

For a simple addition like this your best to create an issue on the docs github repo with the info you want to add.

If you want to help out the brief process is.

Create github account Fork the docs repo Learn how to use github commands Use something like Atom text editor to edit files on your local machine Send a PR with your changes.

I fumbled though it at the start but a few more people are contributing now so we need to be a bit more careful and competent with additions.

The discord chat service is a good place to talk about this if you serious.

Hit me up if you want to join the party.helpers are always welcome and you have the knowledge im sure


#49

Some decent updates this weekend!! and more on the way…

Esoptron is clearing up the bsnes cores and Beetle Saturn gets a page

Alfrix gave RetroAchievments a great facelift.

I made a reasonable start on PPSSPP

RobLoach put in some technical info for building docs

Just waiting for the changes to take affect. Not sure its building correctly right now.

Anyway people I’m taking a bit of a break from this project. Had a little upgrade at Hyperspin forum so going to switch my focus back over there.

I will be about but not as much. RLS is also getting hectic.


#50

More links to add to the main post.


#51

Cool I added those.

When im at a pc i will try to format that monster OP a little better


#52

Do you mean this Genesis BIOS?

http://segaretro.org/TradeMark_Security_System

I’ll add an entry for it in the BIOS table soon. It wasn’t in the Genesis Plus GX core info file so I had no idea it was supported.


#53

Yeah! That’s the one!

I actually only stumbled on it being supported when I was searching for the file for my database. Came across a github libretro article and it was listed deep in some text that I didn’t understand at all. Other than that though I’ve never found any instance of anyone else ever acknowledging it. I try to spread the word when I can haha.

I was quite surprised and also ECSTATIC that it was supported. It made a world of difference in authenticity for me. Most people don’t seem to care haha, but I think boot-screens are incredibly important.

Even if they are just simple text lol


#54

I’ve submitted updates to add the Genesis BIOS to the doc page and the core info file.

https://github.com/libretro/docs/pull/141

Now, we have to wait until they’re merged and the site is automatically updated by the buildbot. :blush:

https://buildbot.libretro.com/docs/library/genesis_plus_gx/

Thanks for letting us know about that.

Remember to enable the System bootrom core option.


#55

I added a To-do page to the Google doc.


#56

Good idea.

Sorry i wont be helping much next couple of months. Ill try when i can to do a bit here and there


#57

That’s fine. I’ll continue working on this while you’re working on other stuff.


#58

Looks like your doing a good job with all the update.

Been getting the email notification from Git. Still busy but with real life stuff now.

Keep it up an hope to get something done myself around Christmas


#59

I’m going to stop linking to https://github.com/libretro/libretro-meta/issues for the time being until there’s a concentrated effort to move all core issues to libretro-meta.

I agree with the idea of it being the main tracker for core issues but I don’t want to send end-users who visit the core docs to a unused issue tracker.


#60

There is a bounty open for moving issues to libretro/meta.

Great job on all the updates :slight_smile:
