I'm not sure if this has been discussed before, but the current No-Intro sets do not include the prototype/beta games dumped by drx from hidden-palace(.org).

He released over 1000 different betas of various video games, including them in the No-Intro set would help out preserving them.

Sorry for my English, I don't speak it very well.

it was discussed before in forums
i think the statement was there shouldn't be included because they weren't pulled out of real cartridges
there was some discussion about putting them in a separate dat but it ended up there

in my opinion, no-intro should not include every existing developpers builds (yes, that is what those betas are) because it's simply impossible to know how much of them were compiled before actual game releases, which would make the "undumped" list kinda infinite

I think these should be added. Other non-physical things are on DoM, and that point about undumped lists being infinite is silly.

I also think that tons of beta are not needed. Otherwise, this site turn into kind of trash with hundreds of unnecessary ROMs.
