    Seeing as how for PSX games (and others) there are different versions of the same game (v1, v1.1, v2) etc...

    What would be the best way about a good naming conventions for my ever growing collection of ISO's

    Example; games are released with the different startup screen (one without wiimote jacket, and one with, like wiisports I have two different copies of)

    I was looking for something while browsing the disc to jump out at me as the writing on the bottom of the disc doesnt help me a lot, but all i find was game title numbers and version numbers that made no sense...

    any ideas guys?

    The bottom of the disc is a good idea actually. For example, my Wii Sports disc sais "RVL-RSSP-0A-0 JPN" at the bottom, which means "Wii Game - Gamecode of the game (R=Wii, SS=Wii Sports, P=PAL) - [dunno] - Version 0 Produced in Japan". Later versions with changed Wiimote screen probably say "RVL-RSSP-0A-1 JPN" (I know the Zelda TP versions follow this, anyway). So that number after the 0A should be a pretty good indicator of the game revision.

    That should be good but for the codes some are RVL-RSSP-UKV, some are RVL-RSSP-AUS, some are RVL-RSSP-EUR, and the bottom of the disc doesnt say this....but i'll look into it a bit with all my discs I have [​IMG]

    You were in fact correct with the disc verions. That is how I will name the ISO's, but one last problem. With the games I have ripped, and don't have the discs anymore I can't seem to find a way to tell (like you can with PSX etc...)

    tmd file didnt help much either

    RVL-RSSP-0A-0 JPN showed:
    issuer: Root-CA00000001-CP00000004
    version: 0
    ca ver: 0
    sign ver: 0
    system version: 0000000100000009
    title id: 0001000052535050
    title type: 1
    group id: 3031

    title version: 0000

    RVL-RSSP-0A-1 JPN showed:
    issuer: Root-CA00000001-CP00000004
    version: 0
    ca ver: 0

    Well, I see a difference in the "system version" part (...09 ...15), but not sure how that translates to the codes on the bottom of the disc, sorry.

    Yeh SMG has 21 instead of 09 and 15...

    so no way to tell what version a disc was?
    I extracted and opened so many files too...

    if anyone could find out that would be so awesome thanks
