This template is used to display an information box containing details about a mod. See Aliens vs. Keen for example use.

Valid parameters and examples are:

Parameter/example Description
TitleImage = MyMod.png Image showing mod's title screen. Use the default name wherever possible (i.e. do not use this option unless you have to)
GameplayImage = Mod-ingame-MyMod.png Image showing a level in the mod being played. Use the default name wherever possible (i.e. do not use this option unless you have to)
ImageScale = 320px
ImageScale = x200px
Scale the two above images as a last resort. Do not use this unless the images cannot be scaled to 320×200. In particular, this must never be used because 320×200 screenshots were uploaded as 640×400 images - reupload them as 320×200. This option is only used for special cases where the original games actually run in 640×480 native resolution and need to be scaled down to fit in the infobox.
