    So TempGBA has gotten a lot better than NDSGBA, to the point that it's going to need it's own compatibility page. I'm trying to make a new one, but I can't figure out how to make a new table template that'll accept more than three columns of data (among other things).

    Old compatibility page: http://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/DSTWO_GBA_Emulator_Compatibility
    New compatibility page: http://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/TempGBA_Compatibility

    While I was able to find and edit the table template itself to change the wording of the columns and add more, my issue is anything I add after 3 (on the compatibility page) doesn't show up properly, doesn't show up at all, or breaks the table.

    I figure it has something to do with this "SC_GBA" keyword the entries are using (which also seems linked to the key, which I want to edit as well), but being unfamiliar with wikis I've no clue how to find and make a copy of it for a different table layout if that's what I need to do.

    SC_GBA is a template:
    http://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/Template:SC_GBA

    You need to add another column to that template.
    That'll break the old compatibility page of course, so you should probably make a copy and change SC_GBA to the new name of the new list.

    Anything between {{ and }} basically embeds ("transcludes") that page in the current page. By default it'll go look for the template with that name. The exception is if there is a colon in the name.

    {{SomePage}} transcludes "Template:SomePage"
    {{:SomePage}} transcludes "SomePage"
