    Like, the file-name - there i sno link to download it.... and the NFO file - what is that all about>!>

    ROM Number 0868 Icon: - Explains what number it was dumped
    Full Name Professor's Brain Trainer - Logic - Full name of the game dumped
    Region Europe - What kind of version , J U and E are diffrent. Like Ps2 Cd´s for a USA can only be played on USA ps2´s
    No worries for Ds cause region free
    Languages English - Francais - Italiano - What types of language you can play it in
    Release Group iND - Who dumped it
    ROM Size 256Mbit - How big it is
    Save Type Unknown - What kind of save file format it is
    Genre Miscellaneous - Rpg Advetnure etc. It says what type of game it is
    Filename ind-log.zip - Name of zip file
    View NFO Click Here NFO is word from release groups and buncha other stuff

    The reason why there is no rom link is because it´s against GbaTemp rules i think. [​IMG]

    Ok cool thanks.

    Sorry if it was a bit of an obvious questions, but just didn't see the point of having a file name if you cant download it! Surely this file name will change as it is distributed around??
