    Okay, I'm always downloading stuff like NES, SNES, Genesis, etc ROMs and I've noticed that there is some weird ass syntax they use with the following being common suffixes:

    [!]
    [b1]~[b3]
    [01]~[o3]

    The problem I'm having though is what the hell do they mean? I've tried google and can't figure it out.

    -Aha, finally found it-
    It seems that [!] = "Final Version" (What a goddamn failure of a syntax)
    [T-Country] = Translation (Fanmade)
    [b0]~[bnumber] = Bad dump (Why the hell do they bother keeping these up?!)
    [o0]~[onumber] = Overdump (Again, why, just friggin' WHY?! D:
