how about "(ZG)" or "(PRC)"
xuom2 » 2004-06-23 12:30:09

in goodcodes "china" is ( C ). i don't know what to choose :P
bigfred » 2004-06-23 12:43:45

We have 1 letter for all other countries so we should stick to this.
lessram » 2004-06-23 14:15:33

Nope... Netherlands is also 2 caracters (NL) but I don't care what we pick Ch or C, but we already have some Ch games all with a [p] remark but still Ch is already set for China, so I found it strange to see a C game suddenly.
xuom2 » 2004-06-23 15:17:14

ok, but i think that from the next version we will use everywere (C), just to follow a bit more goodcodes convetion.

you know the others are all marked with [p],they are all chinese translation games, not really for china.
actually, nointro dat do not need these games. a number is not important for me, i don't care. ;) .
cause we are using the same number as PH's release list.
i don't know why these games are put in the renamer dat. :?
there are still many chinese hacking game,but no one care at this time :(

In PH's faq you see that they accept all commercial games and commercial doesn't need licensing from nintendo. They don't accept them anymore because it's hard to tell if it comes from a real pirate cart or if it's a rom-hack I think.
Why don't we use (N) for netherlands?
madcell » 2004-06-24 07:15:48

how could they make such a mistake. :D
our purpose is no hacked game,no pirate cart
lessram » 2004-06-24 11:47:51

N could be Norway too !
(and other countries, but I doubt there will even be a Nigerian, Nicaraquan, Nubian, etc... release)
bigfred » 2004-06-24 12:07:03

"G" could be Greece, "I" India and "S" Saudi-Arabia ;)

(H) could be an acceptable replacement for (NL) as Holland is and alternative for the Netherlands, or is H already reserved. Possible confusing with hacked ROMs mind u, possibly the reason china was (Ch) instead of (C) to remove confusing it with a cracked ROM. Mind u the round brackets should remove the confusion.

Only real solution is to use the official country abbreviations that they use in the Olympics :)
Grim_Reaper » 2004-06-24 19:28:19

Why not just have (c) be cracked and (C) be China.
FidoFuz » 2004-06-25 01:59:33

You mean [c] for cracked and (C) for China.
RomUlan » 2004-06-25 03:24:09

now for something completely different. how about using the last 3 characters in the serial e.g. USA, JPN, CHN, EUU, KOR etc etc etc
RomUlan » 2004-06-28 22:56:00

if the lenght of the names in the dat is an issue, how about dropping the (Mx). really, is really necessary?
lessram » 2004-06-29 00:21:08

I know but Netherlands is always refered to as NL never as N
It's commonly accepted that N = Norway and NL = Netherlands
