    I would have asked in the thread but it was closed. I was about to put that Iron man GBA rom on my cart until I seen that the rom was labled "GBA NUKE". What does that mean?

    Yep that's correct. If a rom was 'released' that was not dumped correctly then it will be nuked. Meaning it is no longer part of the official release list.

    Well in this case the rom is fully functional. the problem reside in the fact that the european rom is identical to the Us one that has already been dumped. So it's a Dupe and there is no reason to add it in a release list. But you can play it whitout any fear.

    So if you have a torrent such as 'Prison Break S2E11 NUKED'

    It will mean it is wrong?
    Been wondering this a while

    It means it breaks scene rules in some way. This could mean it has no sound for the last 20 minutes, the rars are broken, the crack doesn't work, someone else has released it... Could be one of many things

    In that case it means it doesn't meet the standards for that type of release, but it might be fully watchable.

    EDIT: It could nuked just simply because the NFO is wrongly labeled.

    No. You don't nuke just 'cause the NFO happens to contain bad information (well... I s'pose some sheep might). If tags or something similar are wrong, however...
