Template documentation[view · edit · purge · links]

Template:Cite is used to create citation footnotes. More specifically, this template helps standardize all citations to the Ōkami series from specific keywords and pre-programmed values. Refer to Help:Footnotes for non-template-specific usage guidelines.

This template depends on Module:Cite
This template uses Lua. To make adjustments to this template, edit the module page.

Usage

Note that many parameters are mutually exclusive of others; for example, you should not use both mission and manual within the same citation (although technically possible). Furthermore, some parameters require the provision of other parameters, such as manual and version, or guide and brand, all four of which also require both unnamed 1 and p.

The following parameters without an equals sign serve as keywords that invoke a pre-programmed output. For example, manual automatically outputs a link to the manual of the game given in unnamed 1.

Inline formatting
{{cite |<unnamed 1> |<unnamed 2> |script= |display= |manual |version= |guide |brand= |p= |mission= |file= |website |name= }}
Line-spaced formatting
{{cite
| <unnamed 1>   
| <unnamed 2>   
| script      = 
| mission     = 
| display     = 
| manual        
| version     = 
| guide         
| brand       = 
| p           = 
| file        = 
| website       
| name        = 
}}

Then place the corresponding {{reflist}} template at the bottom of the page under a "Citations" section.

Parameters

Required

<unnamed 1>

The abbreviated codename of the game to be cited, as follows:

Note that the programming of subsequent parameters is often dependent on the value of this parameter, therefore it must always be given. Games are the basis of all citations (except web citations and citations to books that aren't dedicated to a single Ōkami title).

Optional

<unnamed 2>

Anything to be put after the game link (separated by a comma and a space). This may be used if no other pre-made parameter will work for the nature of the citation needed. Its output is a simple text string with no formatting.

Optional

script

This parameter both invokes a link to the script page of the game indicated by unnamed 1, as well as accepts a value for a specific section of said script. Ensure that the value of this parameter is copied directly from the respective script page so that the anchor target works.

Optional

mission

This parameter formats a link to the mission name specified.

Optional

display

Use this parameter in conjunction with the script or mission parameters if you wish for the link display to be different from the link's actual name.

Optional

manual

This parameter invokes a link to the manual associated with the game specified in unnamed 1, and accepts no values. It requires a game specified in unnamed 1, as well as a version and p value (see below).

Semi-required

version

This parameter specifies the regional version of the game manual for the manual parameter. It is required only if manual is used. Accepted values are NTSC-U/C, PAL, and NTSC-J (see Module:Codename).

Optional

guide

This parameter invokes a link to the strategy guide associated with the game specified in unnamed 1, and accepts no values. It requires a game specified in unnamed 1, as well as a brand and p value (see below).

Semi-required

brand

This parameter specifies the brand of the strategy guide for the guide parameter. It is required only if guide is used. Accepted values are prima, piggyback, bradygames, famitsu, and shogakukan (see Module:Codename).

Semi-required

p

The page number of the game manual or strategy guide cited. It is required only if manual or guide is specified.

Optional

file

The cited file name of an asset from a game disk. In the case of the first three games, the .o-formatted version of the file name is preferred, though in some cases only the *-ag.go version is available.

In the case of The Lost Frontier, the file name is determined by opening one of the .WAD files in a text editor and searching through CHARACTERS, LEVELS, SOUNDS, and SFX. You will not be able to see the file extension due to the corruption of the WAD file when reading through it with a text editor, thus only include the file name and the path. You do not need to include the entire path, just the top-level path name (e.g. CHARACTERS/JakFloatRadio).

Optional

website

The official website of the cited game. This parameter accepts no values: it is a keyword that will automatically output a correctly formatted website link.

If new websites become available, an entry for it can be added to this template's module page.

Optional

name

The unique name of a citation so that it may be invoked elsewhere without repeating the other parameters.
