Good news. I guess we can discuss implementing the data into No-Intro now?

Thanks for the quick update!

I don't know if you're familiar with the RetroPlay English Translation packs, I was using your db to rescan the headers and I found those missing entries:

Regarding the "unexpected data errors":
  • Lines (Russia) (Unl) [T-En by MrNorbert1994 v1.0].nes: This has a text message appended to the end of the file.
  • Legend of Zelda, The - Triforce of the Gods (Asia) (Unl) [T-En by Pacnsacdave v1.1] [n].nes: This has UNIF chunks appended to the end of the file. (?)
  • Doraemon (Japan) [T-En by Neokid v1.1].nes: This file is padded to 256 KiB even though only 192 KiB are used.
I don't know what version of the python script or which of the RetroPlay pack variants you are using, but for all three files, the script does not give me unexpected data errors, instead it says "Trimming unknown data" in those cases.

As for the rest, it was easy to fix/add, but I think I'll wait what else Lodan comes up with before I upload another version. ;)

Ah, thank you for the update and thank you for maintaining this valuable resource. I've been able to fix a few bugs in MAME just by cross-referencing this list alone. If I find any more of the rare errors I will continue to report.

I just registered to say thank you for the continued work on the database, NRS. :beer:
Those three games mentioned above, they're already fixed, so they're probably sourced from an outdated dat.

NRS, unfortunately, I'm not authorized to send pm just yet, please feel free to do so, so the remaining translations can be checked for possible errors.
They do have NES2.0 headers, but I wouldn't mind you giving them a second glance, just in case. :)
These are the 33 unknown entries in question (I removed a dupe of Dragon Slayer IV - Drasle Family, a faux pas on my behalf):

Seems to be a naming error with
Starflight (crc32 D6480156)
Starflight [PRG quadrupled to 16 KiB] (crc32 BA00D3C1)

Should be Starfight

Omissions:
The Money Game 2 (PRG CRC EA79CC19)
Famicom Shogi Ryuuousen (PRG CRC 3B05AC54)

Both support the Turbofile and should be set to expansion type="33". Also, I don't think the beta/proto for Famicom Shogi has complete/working code for the Turbofile, though the save/load screens are present.

Correction:
A couple characters are incorrect for San Guo Zhi 4 (PRG CRC 6715E890) according to its title screen. 志 should be 誌. 壁 should be 璧.

Thank you, but the filenames in the comments are not officially a part of the database. I am in fact considering removing them completely, since people are using them for unintended purposes.

Would you be willing to consider adding the game name to the database as a field, if you do that? It's really useful to be able to tie a specific game to specific data.

Hi all,

This XML file is fantastic. I am working on a script that would allow showing what is incorrect in headers in romfiles, and maybe correct those (I am aware something like this exists already, this just seems like a nice concrete problem for me to keep my mind occupied and work on something fun in the evening).

I've run into a bit of an issue: to verify my code works correctly, I would like to have a few rom files that have correct NES 2.0 headers. I have found quite a large number of rom files 'in the wild', and these all have iNES headers. I found zero romfiles with NES 2.0 headers.

Do romfiles with NES 2.0 headers actually exist? Or is iNES still the most widely used header, and should I focus my efforts on implementing that spec?

I've searched on archive.org and archive.6502.org for various spellings and combinations of NES20, header and rom, but still not able to find any NES2.0 headered roms. I found 'https://archive.org/details/NESrompack', but all ROMs inside are not NES20.

I'm starting to think NES2.0 exists only academically, and for all practical purposes, iNES is the reality?

There are NES 2.0 ROM archives on archive.org that I will not link to. But even if there were not, the purpose of the database is precisely to alleviate that. If every NES ROM file on the internet were already NES 2.0, you would not need this database.
