    Just wondering... Does gbatemp officially give the numbers assigned to DS and GBA roms? Or who does?

    What I'm not sure about is why the numbers are often different than other release lists, like pockethaven. And usually the numbers people use in the irc chat #gbatemp are different than the actual numbers on gbatemp.net.

    I don't think anyone really cares anymore, but we have our own numbering which sometimes differ from other websites/release lists.
    Numbering isn't really common in console scenes. I've only seen it for GB/C, GBA and NDS games.
    There might be others though, I don't know.

    I know this is off-topic, and I'm not directing this at you in particular, but is there a single American who can spell lose? It's just one of those things I see all the time and it pisses me off. Lose and loose are different words people!

    It's not like typos are uncommon on the interwebz o.O.

    Back on topic, at least the NDS numbers seem correct [​IMG] ... for now ><
    Gba was fine until like close to 2000, then manyyyy sites just didnt agree with each other. XD all hell broke loose

    For pictures yes but they are not a good source to relate numbers... (Mermaind should be 2500 flat)
    They base there source by http://www.advanscene.com/

    and thats a german site which misses lots of other releases... they are 25-30 release numbers back XD
