    A list for users, so they can easily find information on the latest scene releases. Use these lists to Submit Scene Releases! More content coming soon!

    Legal ROM/ISO Information Sources

    You'll find online sources below for NDS and Wii ROM/ISO release information.

    NDS ROM Information Sources
    * Ludibria's NDS Release List - Ludibria displays all the NFOs and filenames for NDS ROMs. Their list is correct, the top item being the latest.

    * ABGX's NDS Release List - List is entirely correct, and coorlates with Ludibria's release list.

    * DS-Scene - Website devoted to the NDS Scene. You'll find their list correct, and are usually the first to post information on new NDS releases.

    * Advanscene.com - Information on NDS releases, as well as GBA and PSP releases. They always include the correct save type in the NDS releases, but are usually slow in updates.

    * GBArl - Italian website that is devoted to the NDS Scene. They're usually slow in updates, but still are a useful source.

    * NFO Rush - A pre site dedicated to consoles

    * orlydb - A general pre site that carries console releases


    Wii ISO Information Sources

    * Ludibria's Wii Release List - Ludibria displays all the NFOs and filenames for Wii ISOs. Their list is orrect, the top item being the latest. Note that Virtual Console releases (releases containing ".VC." in their directory name) are not always in correct order.

    * ABGX's Wii Release List - List is entirely correct, and coorlates with Ludibria's release list. Their Virtual Console release list is correct.

    * wii.DS-Scene.net- A website devoted to the Wii scene, you'll find their Wii, VC, and Wii Ware release list to be correct (most of the time).

    * The Pre sites in the DS category above will also have Wii release information.

    When posting a release in the Download Management Center, please make sure all your information is correct and we ask that you don't steal box art from other websites.

    You can find box art at places like Amazon, Amazon.co.uk, Amazon Japan, ToTheGame, GameSpot and a bunch of other places that are just a search away!

    More links should be added soon. Feel free to share yours (make sure they're legal, of course).

    Maybe better at posting releases, but nothing more [​IMG]

    And yes, they're completely legal.

    When it comes to DS releases I prefer DS-Scene, but Gbatemp has a much better (active?) community.

    Of all those on the list, DS Scene is definitely best on new releases.

    thats not entirely true, sometimes they miss releases by order of pre on both vc and wii. And when they find out they normally post the missing ones the day after at the top of the list so the order isn't always 100% correct.

    Most recent time i can say that this happened was with Family Trainer JPN a couple of days ago.

    Well damn, I thought that was in incorrect order.
    *Goes back to fix mistake*

    Edit:
    Fixed. I guess there really is no correct Wii release list :S

    Soooo.... All these sites have been around for 18+ years, right? [​IMG]

    In all seriousness, good list. It provides good alternatives for when GBAtemp is down for some reason or is having assorted problems.

    By the way, JPH, I fixed your Wii DS-Scene link, it linked straight to DS-Scene instead of the Wii version [​IMG]

    Do you mean they own all the games out there and backed them up, thus it's legal? [​IMG]

    A great effort........

    not really.

    They just list information about them, no rom links or similar stuff.

    thanks a lot guys !

    i think it is important for a news site to tell the thrust about other groups [​IMG]
    otherwise they will loose trust

    KEEP THE GOOD WORK
    hope you will never be corrupted by money

    NeXtRL is the Italian GbaRL equivalent for x360, Wii and PS3 releases, they even have 3 release lists.
    BTW, I find GbaRL quite fast with updates [​IMG]
