However I noticed some issues we need to discuss:
There is no proof this revision was released in the US and even the internal spreadsheet only lists the UK Rev 1. We have searched for an US shaped cart but even the USA-1 cart version still contained a rev 0. When you check the bootscreen the US version shows 2001, all European editions 2002. Possibly the UK version was just updated to match the European release date. Not all versions are always released in both regions and we shouldn't make such assumptions without proper verification.Monsters, Inc. (Europe) (Rev A) --> Monsters, Inc. (USA, Europe) (Rev 1)
The verified entry clearly shows a "D" serial so this should definitely be Germany. It's also very common that such censored versions are produced for Germany (I know the comments in the game header but this is not relevant for the region assignment). What also bugs me: In DoM there is a dump with a "P" serial DMG-A4KP-EUR that supposedly matches this ROM. This seems to be impossible, P and D never match - especially since the other "uncensored" version is confirmed from the same serial.Mortal Kombat 4 (Germany)... --> Mortal Kombat 4 (Europe) (No Fatality Version)...
Which brings me to the most serious issue I found: The "P" dump entry for the No Fatality version is supposed to be produced by Paradox. In general a lot of scene releases have been added to DoM as "Trusted" dumps and even serials are listed. We cannot seriously define scene groups as trustworthy sources. We only trust dumpers we know. I cannot even think of anything I would trust less than these. And the serials are not real cart serials, but simply guesswork. We only list proven cart serials, not ones reproduced from ROM headers or similar.
Let's look at an example:
The game has been assigned to USA and Europe now and DoM lists CGB-BHCE-USA. In fact this game was never released in the US. The game has been searched for by collectors but was never found. It's just that the European version uses BHCE in it's header so you might believe it's an US dump. This is why it's so important to rely on cart serials. If a cart is found indeed we can rename it everytime.Hercules - The Legendary Journeys (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It,Nl) --> Hercules - The Legendary Journeys (USA, Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It,Nl)
We should remove all serials from scene releases and list them as Third Party only - unless you really know the guy who did the dump.
The 1.0 was not found on an European cart yet, was it? Was the game released at the same time in both regions?Shanghai Pocket (USA) --> Shanghai Pocket (USA, Europe)
Up for debate. One batch of the US release (US shaped box) officialy comes with an European cart inside (proven from sealed copies). Another contains a real US cart. Any opinions how we should handle this?VIP (USA, Europe) ---> VIP (Europe)
Australien dump is bad indeed. However the header checksums match the US dump so it's actually "confirmed" they match. What should we do?Shaun Palmer's Pro Snowboarder (USA, Australia) --> Shaun Palmer's Pro Snowboarder (USA)
What's the use of these dates? They are revision 0 and 1 so why make it more complicated?Magical Tetris Challenge (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It,Nl,Sv) (Rev 1) (ver.07.12.99)
