    Hey all,

    Something I noticed with the GONLINE section ever since the new site is up. I have always came to GBATemp to get all the latest listings for all my GBA needs. I have followed only this numbering system that is used here. (other sites like ADVANsCEne have a differnet numbering system - http://www.retrocovers.com/advanscene/). I check the site for new ROMS & then use Emule (http://www.emule-project.net/) to aquire them thru the search feature. I never had an issue finding anything immediately. After getting the files, I copy & paste the EXACT name & number from this site to change the name of them to clean them up.
    I noticed now that the numbering system is off or changed somewhere because I cannot find the ROMS by searching for the name & number posted here on the site. I looked back & compared the names & numbers from the ROMS that I have on DVD now with GONLINE & noticed that somehow the numbering & names changed on a few ROMS starting, from what I can see, at number 1833 - Onmyou Taisenki Zeroshiki.
    I dunno if something got messed up with the numbering or coding for GONLINE or if it was read from someone's ROM set that was numbered incorrectly. Like I said, I got all my numbering & names right from this site & now they changed & the ROM numbering seems to be off on all of the new ROMS. Can someone check into this because I think the numbering will be incorrect from here on out for some reason. Am I the only one that noticed this?

    Thanx In Advance

    GBAtemp has used the same release numbering as PocketHeaven. They differ starting at 1864 - PocketHeaven and GBAtemp have the order of 1864 & 1865 reversed, and GBAtemp's recognition of 1866 is not recognized by PocketHeaven, meaning we're now one number ahead of the 'official' list.
