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

    thanks [​IMG]

    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!

    Well i apoligize at that, but maybe i did mean loose?.... [​IMG] lol jk.
    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

    First: MATTLOUF`s base GBA Covers on PocketHeaven and NDS Covers on ADVANsCEne [​IMG]
    Second: ADVANsCEne is a Swedish site [​IMG]
    Third: ADVANsCEne don't miss any GBA releases we just dont count hardware and translated chinese hacks (Like 0350, 0361, 0530) [​IMG]
