    I imagine a Don / Godfather type figure sat behind his massive oak desk and leather chair as soft as a babies behind, then one of his minions runs in with a fresh dump!

    and says "Don I bring you a new release what shall we number it"

    "ah my son, let this be number xxxx and god speed!"

    or I could be wrong!

    so in reality who decides?

    Such a nice description of myself! [​IMG]



    they are numbered just as they come out... if a game is released then it gets the next number... there's nothing special to it really
    Let me add something: rom numbers don't have a particular meaning. They're only here to help find a game quicker, and to give an indication of the relative release date - I mean, it's obvious that game #300 was released before game #301.. this is what the number is for!

    I remember back in the day when Ego_UK used to number the gameboy color releases. Releases these days I can only ASSUME are numbered according to date which is something I generally have to try to do to my gbc collection to keep it complete scene and up to date. It gets difficult when the scene has been abandoned and various iND releases trickle out.

    The first half is his specifications, where it says 'You' is where your stuff starts.
