First thing to do is check and see if the game is already in the database. If you find it in the database, make sure it's got all the latest information. Many older games are lacking information on the latest displays, such as 21:9 and 4k. We appreciate everyone's help in keeping the database up to date.

If you're updating images for widescreen, ultra-wide or multi-monitor, please try to take screenshots that match those already in the database entry. If that isn't possible, please take a new set of matching shots. This will ensure that the image rotation compares the same scene. 4k screens have their own section. While we would prefer matching screenshots, those aren't as important.

We've put together a few tutorial videos on how to contribute content to the WSGF. Once you've done it once, it's easy to become a regular contributor. In the "left hand" user menu, you'll see a link that says "Contribute Content to the WSGF". Click this link, and then select "Game Database Entry".
