    How do I view all of the XXXX listed ROMs? I look in the releases bit, but they only show numbered ROMs.

    EDIT: I mean the GBA ROMs.

    Same reason Hunter said... The G-Online database doesn't hold them.

    Here's a fair share.

    Enjoy!

    we do keep them for DS because some of them are demos - and demos are interesting (special stuff, beta versions, etc...)
    we also list iQue releases because I believe we have some chinese members here [​IMG]

    Reason why I ask is also for the Beta GBA ROMs...considering this is a GBA ROM site primarily, I would of thought Beta/Demo GBA ROMs would of taken precedence over DS Beta/Demo ROMs.

    There's no reason not to list them. And there is no logic in them being listed for DS and not GBA (at least that's what I gather from previous posts, I don't know if it's true). The guy's making a valid point and I think beta/demo/whatever releases should be listed. The reason for these lists is so you have a complete overview of what is available and for rom collectors to know they have them all. A beta version might contain levels in a game that have later been taken out so it's not always useless.

    you know, i was wondering the same thing. I am coming into a new demo for the gba, DK King of Swing, i believe it is called, and am going to dump it of course, but i do not knwo if it has already been released. Maybe a list of the Beta/demo carts for gba. other things like nukes and dumps i think we would not have to include.

    btw, post # 500 for me, yay, only took over 3 years to do.

    No, it hasn't been released. Also, just check the No-Intro GBA Beta dat. They have all known demo's, beta's, non-fakes, etc. there. I see no need to clog the list with junk, :'(

    well thank you, could not find a list anywhere. but then again, i tend to stay away from the dats for different rom collector programs, as i just get the ones i want. don't have the hd space to have that many games, specially ones i will never play.

    But it wouldn't be on the official list, it'd be on a seperate list, a la DS Beta dumps.
