Title: Fixing Regions - Report wrong regions here
Post by: NES_Rules on February 12, 2012, 05:24:30 PM
This topic is for all problems related to incorrect regions. Whether an entry needs its region changed to something else or an entry deleted because that region doesn't actually exist.

Also, please keep in mind that regions can only be changed to a region in the same main region as that entry. In other words, the first letter of the RFG ID# must be the same. E.G. a game labeled as UK can not be changed to Japan or North America, but it can be changed to elsewhere in Europe such as Spain, France, etc.

This game need more region (countries) to be add. All other info looks OK

The regions of the game is Greece, Portugal, Poland and Czech Republic

The game that are in the pictures are the German version (by the language of the back cover and manual)
I will ask for region change in the forum.
You can confirm here.

Title: Re: Fixing Regions - Report wrong regions here
Post by: toze3 on April 28, 2016, 05:39:48 PM

Changed. Good spot

I saw that you had already submited the UK version (i submited the FR variation) but i don't know if the UK variation isnīt the Euro variation, and not only UK because two things:
1- the back cover have multi language description
2-the part number ends at -50 (euro release) and not -05(UK release)

please check the image of satakore
http://www.satakore.com/satengine/photos/photosmodif/T/T-5017H-50_1,,Sega-Saturn-Photo-1-FIFA-97-EUR-ENG.jpg

so this variation should be european (regionwide) and not UK
http://www.rfgeneration.com/cgi-bin/getinfo.pl?ID=E-060-S-00691-A

This goes in opposite way of the great informative site satakore, but I believe this is the correct way.

Possibly it could also exist an pure UK variation.


Title: Re: Fixing Regions - Report wrong regions here

I would be tempted to leave it at UK purely because it's the English language release. But I'm biased cus I'm a Brit  ;D

Title: Re: Fixing Regions - Report wrong regions here
Post by: toze3 on April 29, 2016, 06:40:53 AM
The box cover and manual have the following languages :
English
Spanish
Italian
Swedish
Dutch

I don't have the portuguese variation, but i'm sure that will be basead on this one.

I believe that it's the EURO and not only UK variation. Or you could put the country region/flags that are in the cover/manual

Ok. That changes things if other languages are also printed on the box. I'll try to have a look later when I'm on my PC (can't change regions on my phone lately for some reason)

Shadow - what do you think on this one?

Well, it's not technically a "Euro" variation, because there are other releases and this specifically covers the languages specified on the box. With that being said, however, 5030935 is the generic Electronic Arts barcode for Europe (5030930 is the barcode for UK), so a particular country is not assigned to the media for lockout or other purposes. The country-specific codes are typically used when the media itself is tailored towards a particular country.

I say have English, Spanish, Italian, Swedish and Dutch as the regions.

FWIW, the manual is in English, which is why it's probably mislabeled by multiple places, but the media likely supports those languages.


Title: Re: Fixing Regions - Report wrong regions here
Post by: toze3 on May 09, 2016, 05:51:40 PM
Today i submited a variation for the Onslaught game to european megadrive database, and it was aproved as Region Free, but this isn't correct (in my opinion) because will not been realeased in Japan and also don't know if it will fit on a japonese/asia Mega drive due to diferent cartridge slot.

The game is: http://www.rfgeneration.com/cgi-bin/getinfo.pl?ID=W-040-S-00120-A

In my opinion should exist the european and US variation separately and not region free. If will prevail the Region Free then the US variation should be deleted/merged in the region free, but once again i think it's better to have US and EU variations.

Also note that in most websites (SEGARETRO, RETROCOLLECT,...) there are mention to EU and US releases, with the same part number and EAN.

There are many games from genesis (US) that work on mega drive (EU) and vice versa, but there are diferent packing, and if you cut the right way an japanese cartridge most will work on EU/US system, and we cannot consider as region free!

Here an ebay auction for the pal/EU game, but it's the same of the US variation
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Videogame-ONSLAUGHT-Sega-Mega-Drive-Megadrive-Genesis-Pal-Version-/131798988880?hash=item1eafd4f850:g:n7IAAOSw2GlXJnrn

This particular game was released on EURO and US market with same box, same manual, same cart. In some cases there are mention to not working with modern GENESIS/Mega Drive's due to implementation of TMMS after 1991, but i can't confirm that. I checked here
http://www.rewindcollectables.co.uk/Onslaught_New_and_Sealed_Sega_Mega_Drive/p787332_7952367.aspx


Title: Re: Fixing Regions - Report wrong regions here
Post by: Shadow Kisuragi on May 10, 2016, 08:47:48 AM
The game was submitted as Region Free because there are no differences between the Sega Genesis and Sega Mega Drive versions, including packaging and media, irregardless of the fact that it doesn't fit in the Japanese Mega Drive. There's no region lockout preventing the game from working in either system, and considering that everything is identical in both regions, it was determined it should go under Region Free.

We'll be merging them, as well as Super Off Road (and some of the other Accolade titles).


Title: Re: Fixing Regions - Report wrong regions here
Post by: toze3 on May 10, 2016, 09:41:00 AM
I understand your point for this game, but not for the super off road, and others Accolade titles (like Bubsy, etc).

The Super Off road was repacked with stickers indicating the MegaDrive  and also multi-language manual.

I have other Accolade titles and they all have european cover and also cartridge with european label, so i believe it's not the best option to make all region free, because they are different...

Many games in europe are repacked versions of US versions(especially the EA sport games), and some from the Japanese version (like the first version of dragon ball that was released with an adaptor), i think it's not correct to put in region free just because they can work on both systems.

Even so, i think it's better to have two variations for this game, it's cleanner and less confusing, despite this are the same game that was distributed both in europe and US.

It's not an valid argument, but in several websites it's mentioned two variation, and not one region free...

@Shadow Kisuragi  You are the boss, so last word is yours!


Title: Re: Fixing Regions - Report wrong regions here
Post by: Shadow Kisuragi on May 10, 2016, 09:54:41 AM
Super Off Road being repacked with things makes sense for a separate variation, as do the others.

Just about every game released these days is repackaged and region-free, media wise, but we don't classify them as such because of the packaging. We try to do our best when it comes to this, and I wasn't planning on blindly changing all of the Accolade/Ballistic releases just because one was the same. We do our research first before changing things, and it was more of a reminder to look at the rest in case they needed to be switched.

Despite it being "cleaner", it doesn't make it any less true that the game is a true Regionfree entry, even down to the packaging. Is it the same EXACT game, packaging, and manual, and retailed in another Region? It's Regionfree, at least according to our System - it doesn't allow for specifying multiple Regions. If anything were different, such as with Sonic the Hedgehog SMS where the only difference is a sticker over the UPC for US retail, I would classify them differently.


Title: Re: Fixing Regions - Report wrong regions here

Agree with shadow.
As he points out though each game would need to be reviewed on a case by case basis


Title: Re: Fixing Regions - Report wrong regions here
Post by: toze3 on May 10, 2016, 01:15:45 PM
As said before, i understand the option for making this game region free, and I perfectly accept it. Just would like to see 2 distint variations, but it's not a problem at all to have the region free.

I believe this could apply most to cardbox games that need to be checked, because the majority that i know cames with european box, or have other kind of repack. This could be an exception case.

My variation released in europe is equal to US variation, no sticker indicating pal system and no multilanguage manual, like super off road, both also came with cardbox that's not usual on europe.
I'm aware that later 1991 this game cames with a sticker (SPECIAL PRICE) to let know that it's only compatible with megadrive/genesis made before 1991, due to TMSS introduction on newer systems (ACCOLADE was not licensed by SEGA at that time).

The US is at the bottom of the list of countries. You can also pick North Ametica (Regionwide) if sold in Mexico and Canada too. These should be available to you. Everyone can submit games for any country.

US ratings will only show up if you've picked US or North America

Ryudo, you selected Australia as your country. Therefore, it locks you to Europe and Australia for your choices for countries to choose from, since those are in the "Europe" region. You would need to de-select Australia so you can choose from ALL regions/countries. By default, no countries/regions are selected.

Yes, it's in the queue but it's set to Australia. I'll get it set properly for you.


Title: Re: Fixing Regions - Report wrong regions here

The part number and images would suggest this Ouya should be Europe region not region free:

Also, the controller in the database has NA in the part number. Presumably it should be North American region not region free (I guess there's also a Europe controller):

those ouya pics are all mine. i actually kickstarted the stupid thing, but they failed to get me the kickstarter version and sent those two late instead. part#, upc and s/n are all from stickers slapped onto the boxes.

don't know much about voltage, but it did come with a power cable that's standard for europe. that at least would indicate the box's contents vary to some degree for different regions.

Any update on this ?

Should they be merged (US and Region free variation or separate US EURO releases)

http://www.rfgeneration.com/cgi-bin/getinfo.pl?ID=U-040-S-04120-A


Also forget to mention there is a French Manual of the game and in the last pages it mention the Accolade EUROPE
http://segaretro.org/images/b/b3/Onslaught_MD_FR_Manual.pdf

And also German variation
http://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/b-wAAOSwA3dYfUX8/s-l1600.jpg

Maybe this can prove a PAL (euro) diferent release of the game with different packing.



Title: Re: Fixing Regions - Report wrong regions here
Post by: Shadow Kisuragi on March 06, 2017, 09:36:27 AM
It looks like the packaging was Region Free, but they may have packed in regional manuals. The Europe boxes had a sticker on it that stated that it supports Mega Drive:

Title: Re: Fixing Regions - Report wrong regions here
Post by: toze3 on March 07, 2017, 05:27:43 AM
The card box already states it suports Genesis and Megadrive systems.

That particular case (of Super Off Road) have stickers saying about MegaDrive Support and also mention the different languages of the manual.

For the onslaught game, the only variation I see is that some have a sticker with an alert of the non working consoles with TMMS, or in the German case to mention the inclusion of a german manual. Really don't know about the french case, just found the pdf version of the manual.

This is a almost a rare game, and it was a game that only work in non TMSS Mega drives (before September 1991) and Mega Driive was released in Europe in late 1990, and possible a low print game because of this limitation, so it's hard to be sure about the correct way to have this game submited...

I sugest to have in this 2 possible ways:

1-REGION FREE (With sub-variation of German and french repack, and also TMSS disclaimer)
or
2-US and EURO (With sub-variation of German and french repack in EURO variation, and also TMSS disclaimer)

As stated before, i would like to see the option 2, but i'm very confortable with option 1 also.



Title: Re: Fixing Regions - Report wrong regions here
Post by: Shadow Kisuragi on March 07, 2017, 09:06:03 AM
I think I'm going to go with Region Free, and having German and French versions, because the same English version is used for the UK and Australia.


Title: Re: Fixing Regions - Report wrong regions here

This Region it's not OK
God of War: Ascension (BCES-01741)  -> http://www.rfgeneration.com/cgi-bin/getinfo.pl?ID=E-131-S-05290-A

It's marked like UK, but this is the original EURO version, with multilanguage support form the initial disc. Also the PS3 console says in the title God of War: Ascension (EU)

I have this version, but also the real UK version, the BCES-01742. In the PS3 says in the disc information God of War: Ascension (UK) and also the game doesn't have language choice (at least in the disc revision without updates). I submited this variation, but had to add in the title the name variation name UK, that I will remove after the previous one be corrected.

Also, the UK special edition is fine (http://www.rfgeneration.com/cgi-bin/getinfo.pl?ID=E-131-S-05290-B) with correct data, and also the disc is BCES-01742.

Blue Rider PS4 was entered in as a Region Free (worldwide) release and while it is a region free release I think it technically needs to be a Chinese release.  The actual game case has a Chinese rating symbol on it.

In support of the above post: Play-Asia lists Blue Rider LE as an Asia release.  By our standards it would be considered "Hong Kong (regionwide)"

In support of the above post: Play-Asia lists Blue Rider LE as an Asia release.  By our standards it would be considered "Hong Kong (regionwide)"

All of the Play-Asia limited releases are kind of a mess.  I'm trying to clean up the labeling of them and submit the missing ones but the regions are all over the place.  Here is a image of what the rating logo looks like: http://www.rfgeneration.com/cgi-bin/getinfo.pl?type=ex&ID=W-215-S-00420-A&number=00

Play-Asia "exclusives"
1) Soldner-X 2: http://www.rfgeneration.com/cgi-bin/getinfo.pl?ID=C-189-S-00160-A
2) Blue Rider: http://www.rfgeneration.com/cgi-bin/getinfo.pl?ID=W-215-S-00310-A
3) Cursed Castilla EX: http://www.rfgeneration.com/cgi-bin/getinfo.pl?ID=W-215-S-00420-A
4) Alchemic Joust: http://www.rfgeneration.com/cgi-bin/getinfo.pl?ID=C-215-S-00190-A
5) AereA (No entry for this one although I think it was just the standard CE with some added playing cards, the cards being the "exclusive" part).
6) Semispheres: http://www.rfgeneration.com/cgi-bin/getinfo.pl?ID=H-215-S-00030-A
7) Ghost Blade HD: http://www.rfgeneration.com/cgi-bin/getinfo.pl?ID=C-215-S-00220-A
8) Tachyon Project (no entry yet)

These can be treated similarly to the LRG releases as they are numbering them but they do contain a rating on the actual game case insert.

Raidou's right in that the Rating Logo is HK. A lot of "Chinese" and "Asian" releases tend to be HK or HK/TW releases because they support both Simplified and Traditional Chinese as well as English.

Cool, good to know.  I guess all of these should really be switched over to HK then.


Title: Re: Fixing Regions - Report wrong regions here
Post by: Raidou on July 29, 2017, 02:52:18 AM
Technically, the ratings logos are Taiwanese (Hong Kong doesn't rate games - nor does China ATM). 

That said, HK and TW releases tend to be sold across the region, hence, "Hong Kong (regionwide)".

Needs to be Region Free.

Unfortunately I can't change games that already have a region selected to region-free, so I had to delete it. I resubmitted it here. (http://www.rfgeneration.com/cgi-bin/getinfo.pl?ID=W-194-S-47810-A)

This have wrong region
http://www.rfgeneration.com/PHP/gethwinfo.php?ID=E-040-H-00230-A
It's on Germany, but should be Europe (wide)
The box cames with major titles in four languages (front, back cover the largest, and in the side box more two) and then have small information in 6 languages.


Fixed. ericeskapade has a tendency to focus on German-language games so I think this might've just slipped through the cracks.

Limited Run are now required to put ESRB ratings on their titles, but the database doesn't allow that for worldwide releases.
http://www.rfgeneration.com/cgi-bin/getinfo.pl?ID=W-215-S-00680-A

being region-free is nothing special for PS4 so should we count these as north american from now on?

Don't know if it's correct to discuss this here, but here he goes

Just to know whats the best way to classify the region of the Street Fighter 15th anniv. Pads.
http://www.rfgeneration.com/PHP/gethwinfo.php?ID=U-072-H-00340-A
http://www.rfgeneration.com/PHP/gethwinfo.php?ID=U-072-H-00330-A

http://www.rfgeneration.com/PHP/gethwinfo.php?ID=U-072-H-00350-A

They all are in USA region, but I found many in Europe in two variants, one with "Playstation oficial product" label and otner with the street fighter 15th anniver. Label .

The ones with PS official product label have 3 languages (EN, SP, FR)

(https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/sksAAOSwe6FaLAwC/s-l500.jpg)
(https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/pjAAAOSwyYFaLAwG/s-l500.jpg)

The one with SF15th Anniversary logo on front have 6 languages (EN, FR, SP, GER, JP, IT) . I believe all are basead on the PS official ones, with stickers on front and back of the box
(https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/doMAAOSwsYpaLAv6/s-l500.jpg)
(https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/~t8AAOSwUYNaLAwB/s-l500.jpg)

I bought 3 from UK and FR and all have the PS official logo, and yesterday bouth another (in Portugal) one with SF15th anniv. Logo. This one also have another sticker with Portuguese description.

My question is, should this be modified to Region wide or not?
I believe this also justifies the creaction of 2 variants, the ones with PS official product label and another with Street Fighter 15th anniversary label.

What you think ??

EDIT: The SF15th Anniversary version have slight different UPC/EAN, so it needs a variation.

Should all be considered world wide region wide, or the PS official logo variation get USA plus a PAL variation, and the one with SF15th anniversary logo gets a WW region variation Because also have japonese language ? My vote is for this scenario!






Title: Re: Fixing Regions - Report wrong regions here
Post by: Duke.Togo on February 20, 2018, 07:38:41 PM
I think the best way to differentiate between these is variants for UPC/EAN differences. If the same UPC/EAN was sold in multiple regions, they should be listed as a worldwide release.

Submit the European version correctly, as it doesn't exist now. I will then move the pictures appropriately and delete the incorrect US entry after updating the current collections to the correct entry.

It should also have France added. And following the typical rules Belgium should be removed (normally for simplification smaller European countries donít get added. So despite most British releases also coming out in Ireland we donít normally add Ireland, as an example)

I suggest we put this one off for a while, as the entry is more accurate as is.  France and the UK have their own variants, meaning that this variant is for the Netherlands and Belgium (half of Belgium speaks French).

Another Nintendo Wii game not showing up on North America List
The demo is on the list but not the actual official release.

Beyblade
http://www.rfgeneration.com/cgi-bin/getinfo.pl?ID=U-132-S-11181-A

Changed to NA(r).  Turns out that there's a 2nd variation without the TV episode: http://www.rfgeneration.com/cgi-bin/getinfo.pl?ID=U-132-S-11181-B

Thanks Raidou, kept saying the game already existed for the region and platform. Maybe I wasn't doing something right. Thank you!

Were you adding it as a "new variation" or as a "new game"?

EDIT: Also changed the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection to NA(r).

I think I was doing it as a new game, which is my mistake right? A different region is just considered a variation right?

Different country/region = variation.


Title: Re: Fixing Regions - Report wrong regions here
Post by: Black Lotus on August 19, 2018, 11:29:56 PM
Thank you. When I think variant,I was just thinking variants within that country/region already entered, like oval seal/ round seal, greatest hits, things like that.
Understood now. Thanks Raidou

Not entirely accurate.  "Worldwide" is dead wrong, but GPS releases weren't limited to Spain / Portugal.

GPS coded products aren't exactly tied to a specific country, instead a GPS print run of 5000(?) was split up and issued to European distributors who wouldn't be able to shift a full print run, usually because they were catering to smaller markets (eg. Greece, Portugal, Italy).  But not always.  They are English language products sold in non-English speaking countries with a secondary manual in that country's native language (produced by distributor), and the box will have some form of stickerage to identify distributor or country.   For example, the Portuguese distributor, "Chaves, Feist & Co", would have a sticker on the back of the box with a Portuguese description covering the English and GiG (Italy) would have their logo.

The consequence of the above is that you cannot accurately identify the county of origin of a GPS-coded product by the base contents alone- you need either the secondary manual or a box WITH the distributor's stickers intact.  This can be a pain because you can often find CIB GPS-coded games on eBay that don't have stickers/secondary manuals because they wee found forgotten in some warehouse somewhere.  In these cases, the most accurate you can narrow down their region to is "Europe (Regionwide)".

Also, to anyone reading this: avoid using "Worldwide" for physical releases!
It's almost always wrong and cannot be easily fixed.

I'm not aware of Nintendo System, but I do have a portuguese manual of NES game (Tennis) made by "Chaves, Feist & Co" but don't know if they used in Portugal specific game codes like Ecofilmes did with SEGA games, besides the Portuguese Manual, Overview description... Should be created a variation of the same game for this 3 countries?

I don't know the best way to add "portuguese" Nintendo stuff in the DB.

About worldwide releases, there is one for mega drive that should be deleted, the Onslaught have US and Worldwide, but should have US and Euro.

This entry was set as Worldwide when it should have been set as North America.  Move the cart scan to the corrected NA(r) entry (here: http://www.rfgeneration.com/cgi-bin/getinfo.pl?ID=U-027-S-08070-B ) and then delete the Worldwide entry

A NOTE TO SUBMITTERS AND APPROVERS REGARDING THE WORLDWIDE REGION
1. Region for homebrew games = country of publication. 
2. Worldwide DOES NOT mean "sold on the internet" (at least not anymore) or "without region lockout".
3. Typically, digital games sold on Steam and GOG can be considered "Worldwide".

These games aren't limited run games, just regular games with the US region instead of North America Region Free. I know you guys have a lot, I'm just listing them when I see them in my lists. No rush, no hurry, just documenting before I forget and move on.

Still can't figure this trick out here. When I'm on the "Submit Info" page, the region part is just gone altogether.

As for Limited Run - how about submitting replacement entries for the ones that are causing problems? Maybe take all the good info off from the faulty entries and leave a notice for the owners?I'd assume most who own those titles are sufficiently into collecting that they'll notice and update their collections.

I think you hit CTRL or SHIFT on the region its selected to bring the list back.

Regarding the changing the region thing, that is only for new variations of an existing game. Once an entry is created you can only change countries within the region. You can change eg Europewide to UK. Iíve havent actually tested if that works the other way. You canít change, for example, Europe to North America though.

Where we have to change region (for example those early limited runs) we have a process built in for doing that. Itís fairly quick to do and we can move over collectors who own the games. The tricky part though is moving the images which is a more manual process only a few of us have the ability to do.

Thanks for the offer of creating new games for the Limited Runs but unfortunately it wonít be helpful. I canít make any promises but I might have a chance to start making these changes soon

Those are the correct region, the 5200 was never officially released outside the US.

But when you go to checklists and click on Atari 5200 with the American flag region, they arenít there. Kinda defeats the purpose of a checklist if they were only released in America yet donít show up on the America checklist ...

Just saying,to me this is the point of a checklist:
I live in the USA, I click on the USA flag to see what is available in my country. For games like the Atari 5200 games that clearly were released in the USA to not be on a list seems a little counterproductive on a list that I'm looking at to see what came out in my country. I understand it might have came out somewhere else as well, but if it came out in the USA it should be on the USA checklist. Seems pretty simple.

At the top is a region drop down. On that pick USA instead of North America. This should give you games set to the US. It should also give you games set to the North America region. And obviously take out any games assigned to just Canada or Mexico
