    I think it's a LOT better to write game type below the game screenshots more than file name. I don't really want to know what the file name is, because I'm gonna rename it after I got it anyway. Also, it's pointless to know what is file's name. Knowing game type some how can help us decide should we try this game or not.

    Don't you think so?

    Um...we have more then just the filename below the screens. We also list Release Group, Save Type, ROM Size, Region, Publisher, Language(s), and ROM Serial.

    Just look at what you need. If you don't want to look at the filename, then by all means, don't look at the filename.

    I guess I'm confused what your asking about.

    Do you mean like telling if it's action or adventure or racing?

    It's hard to put games in a catagory now a days. Games blend so many different elements into them, you can't fit them in 1 catagory, sometimes not 2, and somethimes not even 3 catagorys can describe a game.

    With the proper Filename, Instead of Typing in a Game name into a ROM Search Engine in a GBA ROM Site, some people may make speilling errors, or some search engines may nto recognise a certain way or writing the name. Of course, some are Listed Alphabetically, which is great, but most do it By Page Number. So when you have an Official Number In The True Filename, You can just put that number into the Search Engine and tada Its right there [​IMG]

    I think we should add a line that indicates if the color RGB 98,47,119 is found in the game! THAT would be a handy feature.
