I've added an Alt. Title for Prototype, as it is on the cover with the [] marks. Somehow this makes the Alt. title not visible:

I suspect this is the Canadian release:

The US release has UPC of 014633192360

the extra media for this submission is sort of a mess. #1 and #2 are pics of the same poster, #3 seems to be the reverse side of that, and #4 (for which i just uploaded a replacement) is the actual reverse side of the standard inlay i have here. don't have any poster myself, preorder stuff it seems, but if my assessment is correct 'extra media' should include one entry for the reverse cover and one for each side of the poster, renamed to reflect that.

EDIT: Reverse Cover is the replacement.

Yeah...Link's Crossbow Training pisses me off. That, in itself, is a discussion best left elsewhere.
It's meant to be entered as advertised on the box. Was it sold as hardware with a bundled game, or a game with bundled hardware? In the case of Link's Crossbow Training, it was the Wii Zapper bundled with Link's Crossbow Training. With Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles, it was Resident Evil with a bundled Wii Zapper.

Yeah Link's Crossbow annoys me. Can't we have just the game as a separate item? I know Metroid Prime Hunters Demo has its own, even though it was only available bundled with the original DS.


Title: Re: Game / Hardware database errors
Post by: Shadow Kisuragi on May 27, 2014, 12:03:05 PM
Tbh, that's been the trend - people keep adding NFR/Pack-in versions of games to the database just so they can track the component, and it's gotten to the point where it's overwhelming. One of the first things I'm going to re-write when I eventually get to the collection tools.

Sadly, I've encountered this a bit recently as well if a "Best Seller" type title is in the database already. Please put either an extra letter or two in the title or a variation title (e.g. Original), and put in the Submission Comments that it's the original version and shouldn't have a Variation Title.

Here's the Xbox Classics version in the DB, for reference:

Think that's intentional, based on whether or not the person has it in multiple folders with the "Owned" attribute.
In this particular case, the person has it in their "Collection" folder and a "PS-2" folder.

Whoever approved this changed the console to Nintendo DS. This is a Nintendo Wii game, and I submitted it as such...

It is pretty strange looking at a "DS" game released on a Wii Optical Disc.


Title: Re: Game / Hardware database errors

Resubmitted. Let's hope that doesn't happen again. :P

EDIT: Also, I think I just figured out how it may be possible to set the media format to anything on any console... I'm tempted to test it, but I don't want to mess up the DB.

Title: Re: Game / Hardware database errors

Is it a dual mode game? It's in a normal Game Boy cart not a Game Boy Color one.

Correct it is GBC. Project N and Shadow are wrong.

Example: http://www.rfgeneration.com/cgi-bin/getinfo.pl?ID=U-069-S-02720-A&type=bf

With the GB/GBC games unless you know what you are looking for you can easily make the mistake since MANY GBC carts were not labeled as Color unless you have the full package. In fact i would be willing to bet fewer have Game Boy Color on the cart than Game Boy.

Again here:
http://www.rfgeneration.com/cgi-bin/getinfo.pl?ID=U-069-S-02830-A
No mention of Color unless you own the whole package.

One more for good measure
http://www.rfgeneration.com/cgi-bin/getinfo.pl?ID=U-069-S-02190-A

Looks like 2001 was when they finally started putting the GameBoy Color bubble carts into production and by that time the system was already being phased out by the GBA


Title: Re: Game / Hardware database errors
Post by: Shadow Kisuragi on July 28, 2014, 09:12:09 AM
Seriously? :'(

Technically, the cartridge is a Game Boy cartridge with "support" for the Game Boy Color palette, but I wasn't aware they did different packaging. I'm scared for the Game Boy/Game Boy Color Europe database now, as they had a lot of mixed releases.


Title: Re: Game / Hardware database errors
Post by: Izret101 on July 28, 2014, 11:28:07 AM
Pretty much the release year should be a good giveaway. The GBC branding I believe is on every game released 99 and later   But additions should not be being made without verification from a total package.

THANKS NINTENDO FOR THE MULTIPLE YEARS OF OVERLAP FOR EVERY HANDHELD SYSTEM! Luckily everything else had unique media formats.


Title: Re: Game / Hardware database errors
Post by: Shadow Kisuragi on July 28, 2014, 11:51:14 AM
Luckily, the games themselves have individual Part #s. It's just the console that's wrong.

Actually no, the clear carts were there from the beginning. Clear carts are GBC-only carts while black carts are dual-mode.

Gotcha

No the black cart Color games are DMG only the Clear/Bubble carts have CGB as the part number prefix. Unless Apollo knows otherwise.

There are fewer than 500 released Gameboy color games (barring the variants).
Now that people are aware of it they know how to properly research to make sure they are not adding/approving games incorrectly.


Title: Re: Game / Hardware database errors
Post by: Shadow Kisuragi on July 28, 2014, 02:48:37 PM
It looks like Apollo is fixing a lot of them right now. Thanks!
I meant exactly what you said - DMG carts are the dual and CGB are Color-only, much like DS and DSi games had separate Part # prefixes.

it happened with those extra media scans too, not sure if it's the approver's fault or the site doing something, but i submitted them the same way i always have. i'd just rather not have to keep submitting page edits for something that should be right the first time ;)


Title: Re: Game / Hardware database errors
Post by: ApolloBoy on September 07, 2014, 01:55:26 PM
GameFAQs says 1987, which is why I suspect it's listed as 1987. Looks like a few sources say 1986, and MobyGames hilariously states 1984 (2600 release date). I'll look at it in a bit.
I'm actually fairly positive 1987 is the correct release year. I've got some internal Atari sales docs that were shared on AtariAge by Curt Vendel years ago, and Gremlins didn't even show up in the 1986 sales figures (which went from January 1 of that year to January 1, 1987).

Needs "Road to the Final Victory" added to the name.


EDIT: Technically, the series is "Garou Densetsu" or "Garō Densetsu", depending on the version of the Hepburn spelling you use, in Japanese. I updated the name to reflect the Japanese translation, and added the American title to the Alt Title.

Where do we submit info for games that don't have listings yet? For example, I have original US versions of Revenge of Shinobi and Shadow Dancer, but only the later "Sega Classics" pressing is in the database. Shinobi III on the Genesis doesn't seem to appear at all...

Also, Streets of Rage 2 originally came out in 1992 in North America, but the database listing shows 1993.


Title: Re: Game / Hardware database errors
Post by: Shadow Kisuragi on December 25, 2014, 07:31:54 PM
You can do it from the Game Info page. For the missing ones, those would be considered variations (version of the same game on the same console), which can also be submitted from a related Game Info page.

Eh, alright. It still needs console to be moved from regular 3DS to new, that's what I was originally talking about.


Title: Re: Game / Hardware database errors
Post by: Boshamp on February 06, 2015, 08:05:49 AM
I would compare it to the Game Boy Micro in the GBA era. Although it is technically different from the system it is categorized under, it would likely still be under the original 3DS since it is not a new generation console release, just a different one within the same generation.


Title: Re: Game / Hardware database errors
Post by: Shadow Kisuragi on February 06, 2015, 08:35:09 AM
New 3DS is equivalent to DSi - new console, since there will be games specifically created for it, but it supports the current line of games as well.

Micro was just form factor difference. There were no Micro titles.


Title: Re: Game / Hardware database errors
Post by: SirPsycho on February 06, 2015, 08:49:37 AM
I would separate it since the hardware in the new 3DS is different from the original, its more like the DSi compared to the original DS line.


Title: Re: Game / Hardware database errors
Post by: Raidou on February 06, 2015, 11:33:06 PM
To support SK and SirPsycho's statements: It is confirmed that the Xenoblade Chronicles port won't  run on the older model 3DS due to processing limitations, so yeah it will have to be a separate console for DB purposes.


Title: Re: Game / Hardware database errors
Post by: Boshamp on February 08, 2015, 03:32:00 PM
But will the games be labeled as "new" 3DS games as well? Or will they be branded as just 3DS? I didn't know there were DSi games separate from plain ol' DS stuff.


Title: Re: Game / Hardware database errors
Post by: Shadow Kisuragi on February 08, 2015, 04:56:57 PM
The games haven't been released yet, but it has been CONFIRMED that there will be games that can only run on the New Nintendo 3DS.
There were very few DSi-only games, and many DSi-enhanced games. Foto Showdown is probably the most known one, but the list itself is extremely small (and we've identified a couple that aren't listed here):
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nintendo_DSi#Software_library


Title: Re: Game / Hardware database errors
Post by: Boshamp on February 08, 2015, 10:41:12 PM
So these games beared a different label art to specify they would only work on the DSi, it seems. If the "new" 3DS stuff had a label art that worked similarly, it would make it much easier for us to document.

Noticed front and back scans for a whole bunch of PC titles I uploaded are missing now. Was there a loss of data recently? examples: wargames, myst trilogy to name a few


Title: Re: Game / Hardware database errors
Post by: Shadow Kisuragi on April 28, 2015, 12:10:46 PM
It looks like the Front scans are missing. The image files exist on our FTP server, and wouldn't be subject to the normal data loss that the site has gone through in the past. A missing image would've been caused by a corrupt file or bad path, and the file itself doesn't exist on our FTP server... With that being said, I see that the database states that an image was submitted at one point for the Box Front, and I see the submission from back in February on the Box Front image, but no image exists for it. Odd. I'd have to check the server logs to see what may have happened on the submission, and see if the image just failed to upload to the server.

I just had the same thing happen with Cambot's back scan for Faxanadu. In the preview, the image source didn't load. I'll ask him to resubmit and see what's up, so leave it in the queue and skip any images that won't load for the preview for now.

Same problem as last time - the image extension is JPEG, not JPG. I started approving them and manually renaming them on the FTP server to fix it, and notified Sauza. However, I found something interesting in there that MAY be the cause of our Box Front PC images disappearing. In the mean time, I can't rename the Box Front for Dragon Age II PC.

I leave that up to you and the person that submitted them. If you want, you can accept them and I can rename them, but I need to get the folder permissions fixed for Box Front before I can rename.

Namco used that name when publishing in Japan early on. It has something to do with abbreviations and the way it's pronounced in Japanese.

Like "EA SPORTS", Namcot was just a brand label. It was for the home games division, much like Namco Homotek was for the US home games division. They still used Namco for the arcade releases.

Database PSA: We need to change Amiibo titles' format to have 'Amiibo' at the beginning for organizational purposes and to match how the other NFC figures are listed.

Glad to see the change - although technically the term "amiibo" is not capitalised.

EDIT: Also if we're aiming for consistency with amiibo/Skylanders/Disney InfINity data figures we should also be adding a colon after "amiibo"

While we're on the subject:

1. Where did the random capitals come from in Disney infinity. I'm not saying it's wrong. But on the game box and Wikipedia it's either all capitals or just the first letter capital

2. Disney infinity 2.0 was released in 2 different starter packs. As the software is the same, shouldn't these just be variations of each other. And the title should be Disney Infinity 2.0. And a variation title of Marvel Superheroes Starter Pack or ToyBox (or whatever it's called). Thoughts?

I would say that if we were doing the specific line in front like "Amiibo Splatoon: X" but that doesn't sound right either. Amiibo is the catch all term for all the figures in the range so I think it's fine.

I admit that "Amiibo Splatoon: X" does look a bit weird, but I think it's technically more accurate than what we are doing now (Amiibo X [Splatoon]). Maybe "Amiibo: X (Splatoon)"?

ATM collection names are only included as part of the title iff the character appears in multiple collections, and that's a part of the variation title.  The problem is that amiibo from different collections aren't variations of each other (or at least not how we've been using the term 'variation' in the DB).  We don't consider "Final Fantasy" for the PSP to be a variant of "Final Fantasy" for the Wonderswan Colour, so we shouldn't be treating Mario (Super Mario Collection) to be a variant of Mario (Super Smash Bros. Collection).

This US version of disney infinity is just for the disc out of the starter set:

http://www.rfgeneration.com/cgi-bin/getinfo.pl?ID=U-216-S-01290-A

Although Europe has had the game sold on its own I dont think it was in America (wikipedia states only Europe had the stand alone. Can any of you guys confirm?). It it wasnt sold seperately should it have its own entry in the database?

Obviously if it is left in it will need a variation title added ("Bundled software"?)

Post by: Shadow Kisuragi on January 06, 2016, 11:48:47 AM
I've not seen the game sold standalone in US retail stores, no. I can confirm that the Game Case has a different UPC than the Starter Pack as well, just looking through auctions.


Title: Re: Game / Hardware database errors
Post by: Schlibby on January 06, 2016, 12:23:28 PM
Thats the case with the releases of all the infinity games all over the world as far as Im aware. Its probably so 2nd hand retailers have something to scan when dopey people loose/destroy the outer box.

Nintendo also do it with their game hardware bundles. And Im sure other manufacturers also do it

Both UPCs should probably be listed under the main entry eg 0123456789 | 987654321. But i dont think it warrants a seperate entry (that would be different if the outer box was listed under hardware eg Links crossbow training).

Thoughts?

EDIT: changed back

It's probably not a good idea to base title formatting on a PAL NFR disc (demos/promos/rentals/betas)

Most PAL demo discs for the PS1 and PS2 spell their titles in lower case.
Most PAL promo discs for the PS1 and early-mid PS2 spell their their titles in lower case.
Most PAL promo discs from the later PS2 era onward spell their titles in upper case.
Most (all?) PAL rental discs for the PS1 use lower case and most (all?) PAL beta discs for the PS2 are all caps.

Don't know if this is the correct post, but want to make a quick question regarding the submission of games

I have been updating and adding games from my collection, and in the field PART #: is normally the number in the BOX/CASE that is different from the CART/GAME. Not checked all but the majoraty have the part number of the box and not the game, is this the correct procedure?

Example here, for the Aladdin (megadrive EU)
http://www.rfgeneration.com/cgi-bin/getinfo.pl?ID=E-040-S-01030-A
GAME BOX PART # 670-3617-50  (used on game details)
GAME CART PART # 670-3616-50
GAME MANUAL PART # 670-361?-50  (don't know in this case and i'm not near the game but is also different)

This question just came now, because i need to catalog my loose carts and in this case (for loose carts) the PART # will be always diferent the one in the box/case that is normally used.

http://www.rfgeneration.com/PHP/gethwinfo.php?ID=E-031-H-00100-A
Is in Master system section and it should be on Mega Drive section

The RF Swith for Master system is diferent and the model is MK-3092



PS: About my previous and quoted post , any news (negative or positive)??
Maybe there are a mistake here http://www.rfgeneration.com/PHP/gethwinfo.php?ID=E-072-H-00290-A

It's on Hardware section, but i think it should be considered Software. It's a DISC, that also have a game (the name of the game is HARDWARE ONLINE)

This generally came bundled with the Network/HDD adaptor for PS2 FAT models.

Don't think the McDonald's sonic speedway is related to the other 2 here:

http://www.rfgeneration.com/cgi-bin/getinfo.pl?ID=U-00H-S-03511-

In fact, that looks like a certain hedgehog poorly pressed into the maccy D's one.

Anyway, the McDonald's one probably shouldn't be linked to the other 2

There are issues with the New Super Mario Bros. U + New Super Luigi U entries

First off, this entry is the "Retail Release": http://www.rfgeneration.com/cgi-bin/getinfo.pl?ID=U-202-S-00860-A

While this entry should be the "Not for Resale" / Wii U bundled version but is labeled as the Retail release: http://www.rfgeneration.com/cgi-bin/getinfo.pl?ID=U-202-S-00861-A

The "not for resale" / bundled version has a different UPC then the retail version and came in a blue DVD case as opposed to the later retail release that came in a red DVD case.

The entry that is labeled as the retail release in the database also as the incorrect part number.  Should be "WUP P ATWE USZ"

The years are also swapped... the retail release came out in 2015 while the bundled version came out in 2013.

Not exactly sure where to post this but I'm using the tool to find missing images for entries in my collection and on the IBM/PC area it's showing games as not needing scans but when I click on them, they are missing the front box scan.  For example, Age of Empires Gold, II and II's expansion were not showing as "Scans needed" but none of them had the front of the box scan.  I have submitted images for them but just wanted to give you a heads up as it's showing up wrong in the tool.

Post by: Shadow Kisuragi on October 09, 2016, 10:22:46 PM
We had an issue a while back where ALL of our Front Box scans for IBM PC disappeared off our server, but the scans were never removed by the system so the flag was never updated. I'll see about finding out which ones are wrong. Thanks for the heads-up.

Hi guys, I got a couple of submissions that have been hanging around for a while and just thought I would check on them.  One of them (Unreal) hasn't been that long but the other one (Guitar Hero Controller) has been a few weeks.  I know on that one I hit enter before filling everything out so not sure if that's why it got hung up or not.  Let me know if you need something from me.

Yeah, I got about 20 submissions rejected by Fleebitten saying "needs to be at least 550 pixels on the short side, not the longer side".  It was strange as some submissions for 1 game got approved while others didnt (front vs back) and the image was scaled the same on both.  I'll have to double check it later today and re-submit them.


Also, posted this on the previous page so you might not have seen it.

The images are supposed to be 550px on the short side, though there is some inconsistency on whether or not to accept images of other dimensions.
What's wrong with the image? Loads fine for me.

You could implement an automatic check that will reject an image if one of the dimensions is less than 550px.
I see the upload page is using PHP, so this should help: http://php.net/manual/en/function.getimagesize.php

What's wrong with the image? Loads fine for me.
Try loading this: http://www.rfgeneration.com/images/games/U-027/bf/U-027-S-00020-B.jpg
Code:
Warning: imagecreatefromjpeg(): gd-jpeg, libjpeg: recoverable error: Premature end of JPEG file in /home/rfgene2/public_html/PHP/watermark.php on line 131

I know, I know. Give me a little bit of time for things to calm down around the house. I just graduated, and have more time, but my wife has her PhD residency next week. I'll have time then to do something.

The problem is not rejecting an image if it's 550px or not. The problem is scaling to 550px, and doing it intelligently, as I don't want to reject someone's image just because it's not 550px. It doesn't accomplish my end goal of allowing images to be submitted from mobile.


Title: Re: Game / Hardware database errors
Post by: Fleabitten on October 28, 2016, 03:58:27 PM
1 game got approved while others didnt
My bad, you can resubmit that one if you like. Look up the program 'Photosizer'. It makes submitting correctly sized images way easier.


Title: Re: Game / Hardware database errors
Post by: Bear78 on October 28, 2016, 04:24:51 PM
No problem guys,  I've just been using paint.net to resize them.  I guess I actually read the photo upload instructions wrong up to this point.  I read it as the photo cannot exceed 550px on one side, not just the short side.  I've been scaling the long side down to 550px on all my submissions.

Considering it's Rajaat, and Regionwide, it's likely a Humble Bundle release. I believe that's supposed to be Anomaly Warzone Earth, which after the release of Anomaly 2 was known as just "Anomaly".

Not exactly an error but I guess it's something to note: I noticed Tom and Jerry for SNES had a Majesco release that wasn't in the DB so I added it:
http://www.rfgeneration.com/cgi-bin/getinfo.pl?ID=U-044-S-06360-B
It came with scans already added to the page. I'm guessing the title existed at some point and got deleted so when the page came into existence again the pics point at their respective title. I think I've seen it happen before. Only problem is that the credits for the uploader are no longer there. :(

Saturday Morning RPG [Soundtrack] (U-215-S-02151-A) should really be deleted or merged with the normal Saturday Morning RPG (   U-215-S-02150-A) entry.  The soundtrack was just an add-on and not part of the overall packaging.  LRG has sold other games since then in this way and there are not separate entries for those (with or without soundtrack).

This should also be a region wide release, not just US.

Hey. The database doesn't like it when you add games with the same title for the same console.
Just add with the title "Wheel of Fortune PLEASE DELETE THIS TEXT" with a submission note explaining and we will sort when approving.

But how come you are trying to put 2005 as the year if made in 1995?

Oh, I see. It's a 2005 game and the one in the database is the 1995 one. Sorry, long day.

I submitted an addition for Cave Story + for the Switch labeled as "Launch Edition w/ Keychain" (http://www.rfgeneration.com/cgi-bin/getinfo.pl?ID=U-231-S-00150-A) and it looks like it got modified and added as a variation of a "normal" Cave Story + entry (http://www.rfgeneration.com/cgi-bin/getinfo.pl?ID=U-231-S-00150-B).  Technically, all versions that came out yesterday are "Launch Editions" which have a soundtrack CD bundled inside of it.  The one I submitted was a gamestop exclusive which also has a keychain sealed inside of it.  

http://gonintendo.com/stories/281571-cave-story-gets-multiple-goodies-for-its-retail-launch-edition?page=1

Maybe it should be:

Cave Story + (Launch Edition)
Cave Story + (Launch Edition w/ Keychain)

I'm assuming any non "launch edition" of the game will not have the CD packaged in.

No, sir, I don't like it.

The version sold in Australia is actually the European version (EUR coded) which was imported by Metro Games.  It uses the same components as the EUR version, but has a Metro Games sticker and an OFLC ratings sticker plastered on the front.  There is NOT an AUS coded version of this game.

That's not an Australian logo, that's a BBFC rating logo which is still used today. Oddly enough I can't seem to find evidence that LE II was released in Europe other than Portugal and the UK, every copy I've seen has the BBFC rating and I've never seen it for sale by European mainland sellers.

As for changing regions, I think that function's only limited to database editors and above.

Just had a look at that lethal enforcers ii. That is obviously a BBFC logo on it. However it does have the multiple European languages which is what we generally use to determine which countries to assign it to. Wouldn't be unheard of for a UK certification to be stuck on a pan-European release back in the day (this is before PEGI was introduced and I believe ratings were optional).

The database is thankfully moving away from generic European releases so really the game should at least be assigned to each of the countries corresponding to the languages on the box. This would make more sense with e.g. Toze's Portuguese specific releases. But then just about every mega drive game in the database is set to European so would be a huge job for someone to update that without much real payoff. It's more relevant for non-Sega releases where every country would get its own variant.

Eheh Portugal is a very small country but it's in mainland Europe.
It was sold here, and I have photos of the game with Portuguese labels and manual, that I will submit soon.

I saw that the Euro variation already have the bbfc rating, but not the Portuguese.
Also the Portuguese games always comes with game rating , like this "CE +3" .

Agree, for Sega retro games, except the dreamcast, I would say that 95% of the games titles have an European region wide variation. So going to change all that to only the languages of the box isn't the most correct and will be a huge job.
There are some games that had translations for German, because Germany was a big market, besides that most of the games are in English, and some could have French and Spanish to choose.
In Portugal we get a lot of repack in that time, made by Ecofilmes, so we get imports from the Pal , genesis and also a Japanese game that came with an adaptor. Most of then have repackaged box, reprinted or with stickers with Portuguese description, rating, part# and some with Portuguese UPC. In some cases it's a great confusion, but I'm working on that with others Portuguese collectors.
Even now we have repackaged games by ecofilmes, now it's ecoplay, because they have the rights for square enix, Sega, konami, and others.

That still makes it an Australian release though since it has somewhat unique packaging. You could say the same about a lot of the variations on this site honestly, where the cart isn't necessarily coded to its specific country/region but it has unique packaging which shows that it was released in that country/region.

needs to be deleted, only existed as a bundle with game. (already in DB)

I would disagree if this was a single amiibo, only available as part of the game bundle. After all someone may buy that amiibo on the second hand market. However as these are both available individually I agree the double pack can go

Ultima 4 for the master system is a bit of a mess.

The game is listed quite a few times for different countries but all the details and box pictures are the same then there's a Europe wide one listed with better pictures but again the same details.

Don't have time to look into this properly now but had a quick glance. Most likely the proper country ones are correct and the generic European one needs to be deleted (with owners shifted to the UK version).

Like you point out theres some decent scans on the generic Europe one that can probably be shifted before deletion

Don't know if any of then should be deleted/merged, for me all make sense, because have country specific package (extra manual in specific language). In the mobile application all look the same, because there are no access to extras, but on the website there are extra images and/or trivia to explain the diferences.

I think they should be like they are now, and just to note, this additions were made by @madir who is one of the big collectors of Marter System Games on this community.

All covers and manual present I believe are the same with multi-language description on back cover and possible multi-language manual. The difference are in the extras.

I hadn't submited the Portuguese varition, but soon i get the specific codes and picture i will submit also this.

I'm not positive but I think there are 3 prints (original, 2nd, 3rd) of LOZ Twilight Princess on Wii.

This one listed as Alternate UPC has a part number of 62483A and a UPC ending with 00000 which I believe should be the original release.
http://www.rfgeneration.com/cgi-bin/getinfo.pl?ID=U-132-S-00010-B

This one which is the primary entry, has a part number of 61602B and a UPC ending with 00101 which I believe should be the second printing.
http://www.rfgeneration.com/cgi-bin/getinfo.pl?ID=U-132-S-00010-A

Finally, this one is listed as a 2nd print with a part number of 61602C and a UPC ending with 00102 which I believe should be the third printing.
http://www.rfgeneration.com/cgi-bin/getinfo.pl?ID=U-132-S-00013-A

I could be wrong on this so maybe someone with better knowledge of Nintendo's reprints and numbering might be able to straighten it out.

Not sure exactly where to post this...

Play-Asia / eastasiasoft is releasing a new version of Rainbow Moon for the PS4 and Vita.  There is already a Region Free release though LRG.  I tried adding this new version as a new entry and it wouldn't let me so I tried adding it as a variation of the LRG and changing the publisher and it wouldn't let me submit either.

What did you put as the release type? Should be alternative publisher. And yes it should be added as a variant with a variant title (Play Asia). In this case seomone will also need to add a variant title to the limited run release.

If it still doesn’t accept put an x at the end of the main title and in the comments ask the reviewer to remove the x. Occasionally the system will incorrectly flag a duplicate and the title trick will allow it to go theough

http://www.rfgeneration.com/cgi-bin/getinfo.pl?ID=U-016-S-61780-A is the 3.5 edition. It came as 3 double density 3.5" floppies. It's the version I own. The disk scans on the other entry should be moved to this one.

OK, follow along with me lol.

The current front and back images for Oddworld: Munch Oddysee HD are actually the PAX East 2018 cover variant.

http://www.rfgeneration.com/cgi-bin/getinfo.pl?ID=W-189-S-00500-A

They apparently sent some of these out with regular orders back when they shipped them out.  I did not realize I got a variant cover and submitted the pictures as the normal cover.  

I have submitted a variation entry for the PAX version of the game (not approved yet of this post) and the 2 images need to be moved to it instead.

Here is some reference (see thread):  https://twitter.com/LimitedRunGames/status/981218325979123712

Do others agree that gta IV: the complete edition should not be a variation of the standard gta IV.

I see it as more of a compilation of two games (IV and the episodes from liberty city) than a goty edition of IV. Difference to other gotys being episodes is available as a separate release

But the title is “GTA IV & Liberty City Stories”. Which makes it sound like a compilation of two games (which it effectively is).
