I will not be reviewing/fixing any more of the older or orphaned DATs (in the immediate future anyway).

So it means Apple IIGS is free again? :)
Don't really know if I will work on it but asking just incase.

Nice work.  :)

Question:
Why do you use (JP)(ja), (KR)(ko) or (US)(en) ?
When it is (JP) then the normal language from these releases is (ja), so no need to write it and expand the setname.

(ja) isn't necessarily the 'normal' language of a (JP) release.... in fact that's true for all regionally released software.

Unfortunately, its not always as simple as (JP) obviously = (ja), (DE) obviously = (de) etc....

See SNK Neo-Geo DATs for some good examples, or the below updated Nintendo GB/GBC DATs as well.....

What I mean is if you use (JP) then it's not needed to use (ja) too, only if the language is a different than japanese then use a language flag since common sense is (JP) = (ja).

For example there are alot Atari 8bit games with (DE) flag, yet I don't need to change them to (DE)(de) because I only need to put a language flag if the german release is in a different language, such as (DE)(en) or (DE)(fr).

Oh, I see....

But the problem is how would you know if it really is (JP)=(ja) or is it just that that info (language) isn't in the DAT - like 90% of the DATs.

Always best to use known/absolute values (from a database perspective)...

The renamer who put the country code (JP) should just write a language flag to the setname if it's different than (ja) and that's also what I asked idoru a while ago and we discussed to make a TNC check for that to spot errors with duplicate info.

I guys :D
don't overreact about all that  :S
I've never renamed anything but know the tnc rules and from what i recall from seeing TKaos and idoru discussing it, it was agreed that, like using always country codes if possible is good, also using country + language codes isn't when the language is the same as the country of origin, what i mean is that when a set is from PT, language flag should only be used if it was different from the one used in the country (pt).
This seems logically to avoid having long file names and unneeded work in most of sets like (US)(en) , (DE)(de) , (FR)(fr) and so on so i guess we should keep following, i don't mind having extra info in sets but only think it's not needed so you're having extra work :P

In some cases it is not that clear but having the language missing might even help out, for example Greek = el, Greece = GR: (GR) would give the right idea, (GR)(el) could generate more confusion, there are also countries where more than one language is spoken and in those cases language flag could be used i guess. Having all information we can is great for a DB but also having it all in the filename is not that great idea, ideally we would have more info in a db (or xml datfile for example) and only essential tnc info on the filenames, for example when a set is M4 or 5 i will never know by the filename which languages are there :P

I also talked with idoru about (CA) ~ Canada, he told me to only use language flag for it if it's (CA)(fr) (and other languages ofc) and if it's english just stay with (CA).
