Trying to add "America's Greatest Game Shows: Wheel Of Fortune & Jeopardy" for Switch but it keeps telling me I'm missing a required field, when I'm not.

Double-check each field. Wink

I definitely did like 5 times. Was still not able to add it.

Added the US and Canadian versions.  Check to see which one corresponds to your copy.

US version:  http://www.rfgeneration.c...nfo.pl?ID=U-231-S-02240-A

Canadian version: http://www.rfgeneration.c...nfo.pl?ID=U-231-S-02241-A

Not sure where else to put this - this isn't compatible with the Nintendo 64, so I think this should be removed from the Nintendo 64 DB.  The controller ends in a phone jack-style connector and was only utilized with a hotel service.

Here's a better look at the cable end: https://www.ebay.com/i/173667289626?chn=ps

I don't think it should necessarily be deleted, but it doesn't belong in the Nintendo 64 side of the DB.

I think this "Triple Pack" is actually the French version?

http://rfgeneration.com/c...nfo.pl?ID=E-115-S-04151-A

It has the French address for Ubisoft on the back and also mentions the manual is in English.  I just got the UK Pal version of the game and it has a UK address for Ubisoft, a different part number / UPC, and a few other minor differences.  I can submit it as a new entry for the UK if this current one is changed.

I don't really know anything about 360 but this looks pretty English to me. A French release would have French on it. Could be one of those generic European ones where English is used but would oftern say not for sale in the UK. But under the database standards we put those in the UK for simplicity.

Happy to be corrected on this.

I would say though just submit your version as a packaging variation. Alternative UPC as the var title

Ok, that works for me

EDIT: Looks like someone changed it to a multi-region release so I will submit mine as a standard UK release

EDIT 2: And I tried submitting it as a UK release and got an error saying the variation already exists.

A quick google search of the EAN brings up results from Finland and Sweden, so it appears to be the Scandinavian version (as far as I can tell this variant was only for Scandinavia but I could be wrong)-- Scandinavian releases are sometimes wholly in English, and don't always identify themselves as Scandinavian variants.  I've changed the region for that entry to Denmark/Finland/Norway/Sweden,  although if any other staff member is dissatisfied by this, let me know.

Bear78, feel free to submit your copy as UK.

Getting the following error when trying to submit it as the United Kingdom region

This title appears already in the database for the selected Title, Console, and Region. This error might also imply that a variant of the game you just attempted to enter already exists in the database Check via the search page to see if the title is not in the database already.

Added it for you bear. Adding regional variants is buggy sometimes. Sometimes have to submit with a different title and then change it back to get around that. I didnít get any error at all though so idk

Not an error but more of a question.

What's the general consensus on something like this?

http://rfgeneration.com/c...nfo.pl?ID=U-040-S-04211-A

This game got both a clamshell and a cardboard re-release.  There is only one entry for it in the database. I'm assuming the clamshell was first.  Do you modify the existing entry to specify it's a clamshell or do you just add an additional entry for the cardboard one and not do anything with the original?

clamshell: https://www.ebay.com/itm/...c1aqJdJ:sc:USPSFirstClass!62040!US!-1:rk:12:pf:0

cardboard: https://www.ebay.com/itm/...kAAOSw~jJaryDW:rk:33:pf:0

Both are Ballistic re-releases.

I always add a variation title for any game that doesnít come as a standard release for that console (assuming that game has variants of course). Original releases can always have a variant title if it clarifies something unusual.

I actually extend variant titles to unusual games even if they donít have variants in some cases. Eg download (where not a download platform), code in box, homebrew etc

Maybe I should have been more clear on my question.

The current entry is "Pac-Man 2: The New Adventures [Accolade/Ballistic Rerelease]"

This doesn't specify the release as clamshell or cardboard.

So, should the current entry be changed to "Pac-Man 2: The New Adventures [Accolade/Ballistic Rerelease - Clamshell]" and then add a second entry "Pac-Man 2: The New Adventures [Accolade/Ballistic Rerelease - Cardboard]"

OR

should it just be left as "Pac-Man 2: The New Adventures [Accolade/Ballistic Rerelease]" and add a new entry called "Pac-Man 2: The New Adventures [Accolade/Ballistic Rerelease - Cardboard]"?

Since both entries are Accolade rereleases, they should both have variant titles that help tell them apart. Since thereís no unique part number/upc/scans to pinpoint which one the current page is, your first option is best in this situation.
