By IceLancerDatabase is almost complete with data , consists of ~2200 games.All game names are in proper format and do not have (es,it,fr.)etc in their names. I consider that bad when using rename tool, that data should be in description.
Anyway here it is.
Format for date is: y/m/d
New format is Year only, due to inconsistency and bad data returned in value of month/day using year only
P.S Do not use this database with other database management tools other then hypert00ls modified for synopses or you will LOOSE all extra data i have inserted, extra data being <synopses> , <players> , <developer>

I didn't see any database for this, so i am committing mine. Its based on no-intro set. Some games have all info, some just name and desc.
This is for NDS not CIA
By MykillveeThis XML contains ALL of the arcade hits, as well as the most obscure games I could find, that do NOT exist on Hyperspin's official database! I will be adding more to this list as I add more obscure titles to my own setup. This XML works best with MAME Plus! version .159

By Rowr14I have been chipping away for the last few weeks giving the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive the same treatment as with my SNES genre fix and backgrounds.
I have edited genre information from @SupraKarma's xml from the Ultimate Sega Genesis Pack.
Basically if you want to use the Genesis/MD genre function it's worth grabbing this xml. I've included with the zip the xmls already split by genre and also a handful of useful xmls from SupraKarma's pack such as coop, exclusives, multiplayer etc. Everything has custom backgrounds included.
My approach to this xml was more thorough than when I originally went through the SNES xml which I fixed in order of worst offenders to least genre wise.
This time I went through from start to finish and judged every title individually based on video, wikipedia entries and other lists and resources. The occasional game I loaded up to play a bit to be sure. My results went back to the SNES xml in cases of multiplatform games and that been tidied up a bit and re-uploaded for consistency, the link is below if you are interested.
Roughly what has been done:
This XML was the opposite of the SNES in the case that a huge amount of titles were assigned to 'Platform'. Randomly every 20 titles or so something was assigned to 'Platform' that was just in no way shape or form a platforming game. Many titles were also moved to more appropriate places - usually 'Action'. The 'Shoot em up' category was filled. Previously they were in 'Shooter' 'Educational' was added and the correct games assigned. Many games were assigned to 'Adventure', generally 'Action-RPG' type titles which have less emphasis on stats and strategy. 'Arcade' was added. Titles that were ported from arcade versions, classic arcade compilations or even newer titles that have arcade type gameplay (e.g. fix it felix). Beat em ups that qualified for this however were left in the 'Beatemup' genre (e.g. GoldenAxe) I opted to move the flight sims into it's own category 'Flying' (in staying consistent with the snes xml) as there were enough titles to warrant it's own category. Numerous other corrections which I've forgotten. The Sports categories for the most part were correct as were Beat em ups, so thanks to whoever put that work in. I did opt to remove some categories from sports such as bowling and skating and move those titles to the general 'Sports' category as they only contained a single title. I also removed the compilation category and assigned those to relevant sections.
Thanks again to @SupraKarma whose awesome Ultimate packs have inspired this work and also where the xmls, wheels and sports category backgrounds are from. The Ultimate Sega Genesis pack is linked below.
Below are links to the Backgrounds that accompany this xml (though they are included in this upload for convenience) and to my SNES genre fix.
Please let me know if i'm missing anything in the upload or anything doesn't seem right. Enjoy!
By Rowr14UPDATED to 1.1
I didn't plan to update this but I've updated for better consistency with the upcoming Sega Genesis/Mega Drive genre fix.
Numerous fixes across the board and better split between Action and Platform genres. This should be final, but if someone wanted to create a wheel for 'run n gun' or wheels to differentiate horizontal and vertical shootemup games I would be happy to further split this down and create backgrounds. Let me know if that interests you.
I've spent quite a few hours fixing the genres for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. The short story is, if you plan to use the genres function for SNES, download this.
The long story is...
They were about 40 percent inaccurate, and those were blatant errors not just squabbles.
I've built off SupraKarma's official xml, as I understand the genres haven't been touched in a long time, I assume over the years as games have been added to the list they have been filed away willy nilly.
I have only edited Genre info and nothing else.
A rough list of what has been done:
The 'Action' genre was extremely bloated and has been cleaned up. It had everything from platformers to shooters to puzzle games. 'Sports' genre was full of titles that needed subcategorising, e.g. 'Sports/Fishing', 'Sports/Baseball' etc. Now 'Sports' only contains what's leftover that doesn't have a subcategory, such as olympics, European sports like cricket and rugby and other oddball titles. Practically now if you go to the baseball category you can see ALL the baseball games. If you would like a an xml containing the entirety of sports games, that is available in SupraKarmas Ultimate SNES pack which will be linked below. A huge amount of titles that should be in the 'Beatemup' genre were all in 'Fighter'. This was a big one for me as it makes the genre function fairly useless.
Created genres for Arcade and Board Games as those titles didn't fit anywhere else and need their own wheels.
Moved all titles from 'Miscellaneous' into their correct genres.
Most 'Miscellaneous' titles ended up in 'Educational' and 'Puzzle', went through both of those genres and switched a bunch of titles where they should be.
Pretty much went through every genre and checked every title. Every genre needed work, though some less than others.
I didn't make any hasty decisions and cross checked everything with multiple resources on the Internet (which had a lot of conflicting information itself)
Now obviously in the case of Genres there is a lot of room for squabbling over where a game might belong, especially given that this era was the starting point for many genres that still weren't established at the time. My viewpoint has been a practical one of 'Where would I go if I wanted to find this specific game' and I've tried to stick to that when making the harder decisions.
An example is the 'Simulation' genre has games such as Mechwarrior and tank simulators. City builder sims etc can be found in 'strategy'. Putting these two different takes on 'Simulation' in the one wheel would not be practical. Also this wheel could arguably include flight sims, but 'Flying' has it's own category. That said I'm happy enough that at this time the idea of the 'city builder' or 'god game' was literally sim city and populous and not much else making it fairly impractical to apply newer genre interpretations on these older libraries.
Many games are considered split genre e.g. 'Action/Adventure', 'Strategy/Simulation', 'Puzzle/Platformer'. In these cases I've done my best to put the game in the most appropriate place, though there is definitely some room for interpretation and argument on some titles. If you would like to make a case over a particular title i'll definitely take a hard look.
Incorporating split genres was considered, but ultimately I feel that more wheels complicates the concept of simplifying browsing through genre. There is little point in having 80 different categories with just a few games in each one. That and it would be a huge undertaking for small returns.
I've also gone through and made custom genre backgrounds for the SNES which i'll include here because it's easy enough but will post separately to the relevant section. I spent longer than it would appear putting them together and they look great imo. The sports backgrounds are unedited from SupraKarmas Ultimate SNES pack but included here for convenience.
The extra non genre xmls included in my download (two player, Multiplayer, Exclusives etc) are from @SupraKarma 's Ultimate SNES pack (linked below) which contains an enormous amount of xmls, wheel and background art to sort everything from rating to year to publisher. On a side note, the genre data in these hand made xmls has not been edited so still has the old genre info - though it makes no practical difference to the output.
If you are chasing a PAL version of the theme in this pack, I've created one to accompany it with renamed PAL carts.
Sega Genesis/Mega Drive will be next for me, it doesn't appear to be as bad, but needs work nonetheless.

By PeliculonThe three Capcom Play System update to MAME 0.195 version.
ADVISE: I change some roms in CPS2 because they are clones. So I changed this clones (in the most of the cases USA roms) for the parents (european roms).
By PeliculonAn update of all the Arcade Classics to make them match with MAME 0.195 version.
Atari Classics, Capcom Classics, Data East Classics, Irem Classics, Konami Classics, Midway Classics, Namco Classics, Sega Classics, SNK Classics, Taito Classics and Williams Classics.
By PeliculonAll working games for MAME 0.195 (including mahjong, casino, etc.).
Genre xml's included.
Optimized for PC and Nvidia Shield TV (works in both platforms).
I've created this xml for MAME 0.195 modifying the xml provided by phulshof in this thread, and i had to modify his xml because he don't use HyperSpin and things like the " ' " need be changed in the xml by "'", then RocketLauncherUI can read perfect the xml and detect if there are missings roms (same with Nvidia Shield TV, if the xml is not in perfect alphabetical order through the description label, the wheel in HyperSpin will go crazy in the Nvidia, jumping to the letter A to J, then B, then A again, etc., no matter the index in the xml, all that Nvidia want is the description in alphabetical order, then works perfect with the indexes. If you have this problem with your Nvidia you can solve this doing what this thread say).
Thanks to phulshof!
By PeliculonMAME, HAME, HAAA!
- MAME 0.139 version (is not 0.139u1, for that is needed to compile).
- 7396 games (all working games, including mahjong, casino, quiz, etc).
- Description names respected (i.e., King of Fighters will appear like "The King of Fighters").
- Only excluded from the xml BIOS and non working games.
- Created Genres xml files that match 100% with this MAME 0.139 version (I did with the hope that someone someday will enable the genre feature in the Android version of HyperSpin).
A bit of blablabla...
I have on my own an Nvidia Shield TV and I was looking for an exactly and precise xml for MAME 0.139u1 (because mame4droid, the app in Android for MAME, use this version). Is MAME 0.139 like a Canon for Android? Humm, I don't know but that's seems, because after 8 years (MAME 0.139 was release is 2010) and 2 years of the app in Android, there still been using this version. I didn't know nothing about MAME, so I learned how MAME works. I couldn't create an exactly xml for MAME 0.139u1 because for that is neccesary compile MAME 0.139 with the source (that you can download from the official MAME site) and I don't know yet how to compile this "old" MAME version. At the end of the day, the most of the users don't go to compile nothing in their lives, and they will have the 0.139 version in theirs computers and not the 0.139u1 or others updates. If someone is looking for a perfect xml for 0.139u1, it's your lucky day, I did the hard work with this list, feel you free of download this xml and add thats extras of the 0.139u1 to the list.
Anyway, I could create an exactly xml for MAME 0.139 and that was what I did.
HOW I DID IT?
First of all, I downloaded the official Database for MAME from this HyperSpin site. After that, I created a xml with the tool "HyperROM2XML" and then I started to copy/paste the info, but I took special care, because I learned that in every MAME update there are some fixings like roms changing names. So what I did was install a gui version of MAME 0.139 to compare sometimes if the info was correct. I checked too in arcade database website if the info was correct with somes older roms (for example, Mega Tech doesn't exist in MAME 0.139, but appear like Mega Play). So yeah, this is an exactly xml for this version. Maybe can contain some errors, Im not perfect, shit happens. The xml should be revised and fixed if there are some errors (ejem..., honestly I think that no one have the balls to do that lol).
If you use this MAME xml like a "master" in your HyperSpin installation (because you have all this 0.139 roms) and you want install "systems" like Capcom Classics, Data East, Irem Classics, etc., maybe you should consider the following:
This MAME 0.139 is older (but seems like a "Canon" for Android) and the official Databases that you will download from this HyperSpin site will have added more roms to their xml list. So, RocketLauncherUI will show you that you have missing roms.
In my installation I have two MAME´s in my HyperSpin wheel: MAME and MAME Android (this 0.139). Why I have this? Because im doing a dual boot HDD, for PC and Android.
Before I forget it, thanks to all the people that helped me to understand and modify the xml for Hyperpin, now im a xml god lol
Well that's all
By zbbocHere is the XML for the Sega Mega-CD
By Ray572New Update March 09. 2018 Version 4.0 All Game Full: Contains all Famicom games to date, both regions of Japan, China and Asia in general. Contains Japanese versions for example "Super Mario 3 (Japan)" and all those coming to USA but in Japanese. It also includes "bootleg" Games like "Super Mario World (China)" but in version 8 bit. In total it contains 1666 games (Ver. 4.0). (To see all the videos in this genre, in addition to adding the videos of Famicom must be added all videos of the NES version, without renaming, as they take each of these as "clone").
All Game: Unlike "All Game Full" does not include clones or Japanese versions of USA. Priority is given to the "Translated En". It's the standard genre. In Total contains 883 games (Ver. 4.0).
Nintendo Famicom: Same as "All Game", genre by default.
Essential: Same as "All game" or "Nintendo Famicom" but only contains the games in English or translated into this, or games with a minimum of Japanese text perfectly playable. Do not inclue the "bootleg". It is the genre more similar to the official version. Contains 400 games (Ver. 4.0).
Essential Special: Same as "Essential" but with the novelty that the description is renamed every game to English. for example "Akumajou Special - Boku Dracula-kun (Japan) (Translated En)" Renamed in the description "I'am Kid Dracula (Japan) (Translated En)" or "Chuuka Taisen (Japan) (Translated En)" as "Cloud Master (Japan) (Translated En)". Also incorporated some games that came to USA with another name, but in Japan are the originals. For example added "Gegege no Kitarou - Youkai Daimakyou (Japan) (Translated En)" That in the USA is "Ninja Kid (USA)", In the description will come out as "Spooky Kitaro - In the Yokai World (Japan) (Translated En)" In Total contains 457 games (Ver. 4.0). (Personally it's my favorite genre)
