I was looking at the Gauges page, and one thing that kind of stuck out to me was how low quality the images are. They were essentially cropped from whatever screenshots you guys could get your hands on (not even extracted from an emulator). However, I recently asked Shard to share some UI images to me (for my own personal use), and looking at them....most of them have pretty much what we need for a clean up. Crisp, clean, HQ. So, with the magical assets Shard has provided, I'm proposing we start phasing out the old images in favor of new ones. I'm also proposing we make them a bit more user friendly to people just browsing this wiki for info. Rather than just have the respective gauges floating, I was thinking of something like this:

Demonstrate the layout and placement of the gauges as well, in addition to them being in high quality. Y'know.....kind of like how they used to do it in video game manuals. Or maybe I'm just a really old codger in that regard... Anyway, what do you guys think? --Webber22 (talk) 04:30, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

I think that looks great and is a major improvement over the images we have at the moment. --ShardofTruth 06:59, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

Done. --Neumannz, The Dark Falcon 00:18, 4 November 2015 (UTC)
Yum. Diabeetus. I went ahead and updated a bunch of them, and eventually, hopefully, I'll get to the rest of them soon. --Webber22 (talk) 01:47, 5 November 2015 (UTC)

So, I have a question: Does anyone have any very high quality and decent resolution screenshots of the latter coded episodes? That's coded, not Re:coded.--Webber22 (talk) 19:33, 28 November 2015 (UTC)

Soo...nothing?  :/ Cause believe me, it would seriously help if you guys did...--Webber22 (talk) 05:38, 2 December 2015 (UTC)
Since you can only play coded on the Docomo Prime mobile phone for which no emulator exists, it's Japan-exclusive and the service ended a while ago on top, I'm not even sure you could play this game even if you track down such a phone with all episodes pre-installed. I think the demo would be all you could run and I'm not even talking about creating screenshots from the game, which probably needs special equipment.
tl;dr:I don't think such screenshots exist or can be made without extreme effort. --ShardofTruth 09:19, 2 December 2015 (UTC)
But I honestly could have sworn that the official site had a couple. The problem, of course, is that the site's been taken down and internet archives can't back-up entire flash files (which the site was - a big ol' flash presentation). I was hoping someone might have caught one from back then. But if not, oh well. I think we'll have to make due with the slightly outdated image. --Webber22 (talk) 15:33, 2 December 2015 (UTC)
Oh, one other thing I forgot to add - the Debug gauge I uploaded WAS from the demo that was pre-installed on the phones. The problem is is that it looks slightly different in the final game. --Webber22 (talk) 15:35, 2 December 2015 (UTC)
I remember the original flash site, it had only very small screenshots, you can still see them here. There are some good screenshots on Famitsu though, at least for the release of the first episodes: Reveal, Preview, Mobile, EP1, EP2, EP3, EP4 & EP8. --ShardofTruth 18:30, 2 December 2015 (UTC)
YUUUS! That's it! Those are the ones! Though...this gonna take some work lol. Famitsu tend to artifact their screenshots something fierce. Thanks! --Webber22 (talk) 21:42, 2 December 2015 (UTC)

Hrrrm. I did what I could with it, but I'm not too sure it looks okay. You guys think the Debug gauge is acceptable quality? --Webber22 (talk) 03:30, 3 December 2015 (UTC)
