I suppose I could add some things... I just wanted to get it all in "neatly", rather than adding little bits of everything from all over the place - I'm easily confused! :D

Well if they're busy the last thing they need is some woman pestering them about something that everyone else seems to handle just fine, there's no rush ^^~

What's the best thing to do for the time being then? I've got about two hundred Chinese & Japanese PC games that need listing! :D

I don't know much about English GBC RPGs but I can recommend the Jp GB game Cave Noire. It's a really neat roguelike, I had a lot of fun playing through it this year.

I've just received an email letting me know that my latest little gaming bundle has shipped, so in a few weeks I'll receive -

Esper Dream 2 (FC)
Lagrange Point (FC)
Death Bringer (Mega CD)

Thank you for the compliment! :D

Your labelling system is much clearer than the waffle I came up with, I think I could list my games easily with that system :)

The only other possible suggestion I would make would be to allow multiple foreign and romanized names. To use another arcade game I own as an example - "Knights of Valour 2: Nine Dragons" has a total of four alternative official titles depending on the region the game was released in (Japan/Mainland China/Taiwan and lastly a generic Asian release).

Again I have no idea how much work would be involved in implementing this so feel free to ignore if it's too much :)

Thank you for the reply :)

I can only offer my own suggestion as to how I feel it would work best -

(Using my previous game as the example)

Name - "Bakumatsu Roman Dai Ni Maku...". This is the name of the game written using the English alphabet

Original Name - "幕末浪漫第二幕...". This is the name written in it's original language

Alternative Name - "Last Blade 2". The name the game goes by in other territories.

To use US release Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky as an example that's the other way around (a US title with an alternative Japanese name) -

Name - "Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky"

Original Name - "英雄伝説VI 空の軌跡FC"

Alternative Name - "Eiyuu Densetsu VI: Sora no Kiseki FC"

So I suppose the main thing for me would be to differentiate between "original name" and "alternative name". I'm hardly up to speed with how this place works though so this post may sound ridiculous and/or unworkable :)

Sorry to be difficult (and possibly stupid) with my first post but I've got a question that I've not been able to find an answer to re: Alt-Titles.

I own the Japanese MVS version of Last Blade 2, but it's not listed so I need to add it to the database. How does the naming system work?

As I'm sure you know, the options are -

Name (English name)


Alt-Name (Original language title or 'also known as')

By "English name" do we need to enter "The name this game goes by when it's sold in English speaking territories" which would make the correct entry here "Last Blade 2", or does it mean "How you would write the name of the game using English characters", which would make the correct entry "Bakumatsu Roman Dai Ni Maku..."?

I've got the same sort of confusion with the Alt-Name field (sorry!); do you want the original language title written in English (Bakumatsu Roman Dai Ni Maku...), the original title as it's originally written (幕末浪漫第二幕...), or would the "Alt-Title" be "Last Blade 2", as the game I'm specifically trying to list is called "Bakumatsu Roman Dai Ni Maku...", and the alternative (Western) title for this game is "Last Blade 2"?

Sorry for the trouble!
