This page needs help, urgently

Hey guys, long time lurker, first time poster. I've noticed this page is in desperate need of a rescue, but I'm not very good with Wiki formatting, so I was wondering if I could get some help. I've got images, videos and information about TLMVG including (but not limited to):

  • The PC version has a huge amount of files left over from LEGO City Undercover
  • It is possible to make the main menu revert to the same style used by the original LEGO TT Games by removing a single file
  • I have videos which show me enabling several cut/normally unusable characters, as well as videos of the testing levels being successfully loaded
  • The scripts for the game are easily read, and there's some very interesting stuff that's been hidden
  • The texture format is simply renamed .dds files, with the archives containing multiple .dds files and a header, and so there's some more interesting stuff there
  • One of the weirdest things is a list of employee roles, as well a lot of other development text, and the big global text spreadsheet has some goodies
  • We were able to crack some of the .ctd format (there's multiple types, depending on what it defines)

I would love to update this article with all this information, but I'm worried I'll format it terribly. If I could get some help, either with general tips, or if someone would like to work with me, where I can send you indepth information and you can format it on the site, that would be fantastic. --McJobless (talk) 20:04, 6 September 2014 (EDT)

This is one of the few LEGO games I don't own, so it's good to see someone's looking into it. First off, leftovers are quite common in LEGO games. This is definitely an odd case though, as City Undercover is Wii U exclusive. I've seen references to Undercover in internal changelogs, but no leftovers yet. If there are a large amount of leftovers it might be a good idea to put them on a sub-page, much like we've done here.
I'm interested in how you're loading unused characters and levels, because there are a good amount of those in older LEGO games I'd like to document. As far as covering the characters in the article, a single image will do the trick. Make sure you check out the image guidelines before capturing and uploading anything though. If the levels are small, images may suffice. Otherwise, an embedded video showcasing the entire level is totally fine.
I've had a fair amount of experience documenting text and other content from LEGO games, and I can help you with article formatting if you'd like. If you have any questions or want to discuss this in more detail, I can be found in the TCRF IRC channel. - M64m (talk) 21:17, 6 September 2014 (EDT)
I also have experience with these games besides this one, as I own most lego games after Star Wars TVG. You can also find me on the IRC channel that M64m can be found on. If you wish for me to help as well, I'll do all in my power that I can. - JeffMandM (talk) - 21:32, 6 September 2014 (CDT)
