[GBA] Game packs title revision

Post by kazumi213 » 02 Jan 2009 16:42

Hi all.

I've revised boxart for all GBA game packs and here are the changes that I plan to implement unless High Council disagrees.

In-game title order has been preserved. I've just followed the "boxart for title" rule (there were many titles "forced" to be "2 Games in 1" while others had been revised to follow boxart).

I've drastically shortened titles where the game pack has a title as a whole. This was voted "yes" on a poll on the old forum but never applied due to misunderstanding of consequences (removal of game list from title). However note that the longest titles (4 in 1) can't be shortened unless we apply some kind of exception and force a "non-boxart" title.

Finally, I've omitted boxart contents like "Double Pack" where they were redundant (when already used "2 Games in 1") or made look the title forced and tedious to read.

EDIT 2: Note: EUR USK-labeled boxarts are usually different from non-USK ones. I've tried to find and follow non-USK boxarts because they are usually the ones sold in UK/have english-only boxart-back. However, sometimes I've only been able to find USK boxarts, hence the differences between the USA and EUR titles.

Some titles have blue comments because I have doubts.

(TWIN SERIES): Boxart leading "2-Tsu Asoberu Ureshii" is omitted for all of them. Using "Twin Series #" alone, while yielding legit unique titles, would lead to poorly descriptive titles IMHO.

Twin Series 1 - Mezase Debut! Fashion Designer Monogatari + Kawaii Pet Game Gallery 2 (Japan)
Twin Series 1 - Mezase Debut! - Fashion Designer Monogatari + Kawaii Pet Game Gallery 2 (Japan)

Twin Series 2 - Oshare Princess 4 + Renai Uranai Daisakusen (Japan)
Twin Series 2 - Oshare Princess 4 + Renai Uranai Daisakusen! + Renai Party Game - Sweet Heart (Japan)
It actually contains 3 games. Last one is "Heart" according to boxart and Nintendo list site, but "Life" in-game.

Twin Series 3 - Konchuu Monster + Suchai Labyrinth (Japan)
Twin Series 3 - Konchuu Monster - Ouja Ketteisen + Super Chinese Labyrinth (Japan)

Twin Series 4 - Hamu Hamu Monster EX + Fantasy Puzzle Hamster Monogatari - Mahou no Meikyuu 1.2.3 (Japan)
Twin Series 4 - Hamu Hamu Monster EX - Hamster Monogatari RPG + Fantasy Puzzle - Hamster Monogatari - Mahou no Meikyuu 1.2.3 (Japan)

Twin Series 5 - Wanwan Meitantei EX + Mahou no Kuni no Cake-yasan Monogatari (Japan)
Twin Series 5 - Mahou no Kuni no Cake-yasan Monogatari + Wanwan Meitantei EX (Japan)

Twin Series 7 - Twin Puzzle - Kisekae Wanko Ex + Puzzle Rainbow Magic 2 (Japan)
Twin Series 7 - Twin Puzzle - Kisekae Wanko EX + Nyaa to Chuu no Rainbow Magic 2 (Japan)
Boxart titles are "Puzzle - Kisekae Wanko EX" and "Nyaa to Chuu no Puzzle - Rainbow Magic 2". In-game titles are the used ones because I think boxart "Puzzle" additions to titles are redundant if the leading "Twin Puzzle" is used.

EDIT 1: Edited to match actual applied changes.

EDIT 2: Batch of missing game packs in previous revision. All pack pre-titles could be removed. They have advantages though, as they allow to identify "game pack series", and most of the game packs to appear nicely organized when alpha-sorted. If pre-titles for these (and the others noted above) are removed, NDS game packs will require revision too.

I agree to these though I didn't check all titles. I bet you did with highest caution ;)

Thanks BigFred.

I'm currently working on editing the database TITLE CSV. I will upload it to apply the changes.

Any suggestion for the 4 in 1? Leaving the longest GBA titles untouched will make all this title shortening a bit less useful. The following would be both descriptive and "accurate enough".

4 Games on One Game Pak - Rocket Power - Zero Gravity Zone + Nicktoons - Freeze Frame Frenzy + SpongeBob SquarePants - SuperSponge + The Fairly OddParents! - Shadow Showdown (USA)
4 Games on One Game Pak (Nicktoons) (USA)

4 Games on One Game Pak - GT Advance - Championship Racing + GT Advance 2 - Rally Racing + GT Advance 3 - Pro Concept Racing + Moto GP (USA) (En+En+En+En,Fr,De,Es,It,Nl)
4 Games on One Game Pak (Racing) (USA) (En,Fr,De,Es,It,Nl)
