Pan Docs Wikification


Pan Docs is the most comprehensive technical reference to Gameboy that is available to the public. It was originally written by Pan of Anthrox, and was later maintained by Martin Korth, also known for no$gmb. As Pandocs is an important resource, it is a priority to add it to the wiki.

The addition of information from the document is done under the following premises:

  • It is thought that the information in the document was meant to be public domain by its authors.
  • The document is no longer actively maintained by its original authors.
  • Adding the information to a wiki allows people to correct or add information if needed.
  • That the information can be presented in such a way that it is more appealing.

Ways to help

  • Add information from Pan Docs. (To do: Formatting guidelines)
  • Convert ASCII art into images or tables, or other formatting as appropriate.
  • Condense information! Create a parallel article where the most important parts of a Pandocs article are condensed.

The copy of Pan Docs hosted on this wiki is considered deprecated.

Pan Docs is now officially hosted on gbdev.io as a living document. Please go to https://gbdev.io/pandocs/ to read Pan Docs or to https://github.com/gbdev/pandocs to contribute.
