    On the NDS new releases section, in the ROM part under the name I think it should have an AKA part for example...

    Elite Beat Agents (U) gets released and included in the ROM info under the name it has AKA Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan (J)

    I'm just getting a bit confused because a lot of the (J) games and (U) games have completely different names & box art and sometimes the (E) game is completely different again!

    What say you? [​IMG]

    It's not the same game, but it's a good idea ^^

    Elite Beat Agents (U) != Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan! (J)
    They are completely different. [​IMG]

    However it's not a bad idea, but we had problems on gbarl to keep this thing updated. :/

    I know it was a terrible example as they are actually different games [​IMG]
    But I was at work and couldn't think of anything else.

    You see what I mean tho'. Maybe something like Touch/Mystery Detective is a better example or something that is (J) with a crazy long name but looks completely different on the Western releases.

    Yeah that's not a bad idea just to list the other language versions.

    Actually we already have this implemented [​IMG]

    There is a section of the release we can fill in called 'Translated Name'. But we don't really use it that often.

    Surely it's not that big of a problem, you can easily tell what game is what if you've been following them.

    Yes, you can tell what the game is if you've been following them... but for the rest of us it'll be a very useful reference.

    As you have it implemented already and there are just over 1000 releases I don't think it'll be much work to link up all the releases; better to do it now before the next 1000 version of Sudoku and Petz comes out. [​IMG]

    I think as time goes on it'll become more and more of an asset to the Rom info page.
