VC Rom Tagging

Post by hking0036 » 05 Nov 2016 16:15

Hey all. I've been dumping a bunch of VC games lately, specifically GBA dumps but the naming convention doesn't seem to be set and I've been thinking about the naming on the DoM. Most of the games are just tagged (Virtual Console) like:

x109 - Super Mario Advance 4 - Super Mario Bros. 3 (USA) (Virtual Console)
x110 - Mega Man Battle Network 3 - Blue Version (USA) (Virtual Console)
x116 - Super Mario Advance (USA) (Virtual Console)
x117 - Super Ghouls'n Ghosts (USA) (Virtual Console)
x118 - Mega Man Zero 4 (USA) (Virtual Console)

however, there's one that sticks out, and that's x115 - Super Mario Advance 3 - Yoshi's Island (USA) (Wii U VC), which is what raises this question. Is it wise to tag the files just 'virtual console' when there's VC on Wii, 3DS (admittedly limited for GBA), Wii U, and potentially the upcoming switch? Granted, I don't know if the Wii changed anything, and all the ambassador rom dumps I've made matched the originals but nobody can say for sure right now if the Switch will have VC, and what if anything it may mean for new virtual console dumping.

If on more than one console, do it like this:
Mario vs. Donkey Kong (USA) (Virtual Console, Wii U)
