  1. Hey mate just wanted to say thanks for the amazing work. In particular for the various Multiplayer xmls you have put together, personally I think the value of these older games and systems are being able to share them reliving childhood memories with friends or with the younger generation experiencing it for the first time and those xmls really make that possible.

      As for ESRB rated games, you will want to fill in the field for those with:

      ESRB - KA (Kids To Adults)
      ESRB - EC (Early Childhood)
      ESRB - E10+ (Everyone 10+)
      ESRB - E (Everyone)
      ESRB - T (Teen)
      ESRB - M (Mature)
      ESRB - AO (Adults Only)
      ESRB - RP (Rating Pending)

      Again, this is so that the artwork for the ratings will appear on your RocketLauncher fade in screens. :)

      I'm happy to receive any help with database work. :) Everyone's so eager about the artwork around here, and these databases are still trash.

      Take your time, absolutely.

      The main reason we use the HSRS for some games that are actually rated already is, Rocketlauncher has all of the artwork for most of the rating systems already - so if you use Rocketlauncher fade in screens, you can have it display the rating while your game is loading.

      But now that we're on the topic, it almost seems wrong to replace one rating system with another.

      Tell you what - for those 'Sega Rating System games,' name them like this:

      VRC - GA (General Audiences)

      VRC - MA-13 (Mature Audiences)

      VRC - MA-17 (Mature Audiences)

      VRC - NYR (Not Rated Yet)

      VRC stands for Videogame Rating Council. If I'm going to have you put in the time, I'd rather have you do it right.

      I've approached Brolly from the Rocketlauncher Dev. team in the past, and he implemented a new HSRS rating for me. I'm sure he'd be open to adding the artwork for the VRC ratings as well.

      And worse case scenario (he says no), we can just include the art ourselves with the download for the updated/improved database. :)

      One final note for Sega Genesis ratings - Sega used their own proprietary rating system prior to ESRB, and it was very shortlived.

      If you find any ratings with the 'sega rating' (I don't even remember what it was called ATM), please don't just enter ESRB ratings. That would be taking liberties. :)

      The HyperSpin community has developed their own rating system - the HSRS (HyperSpin Rating System) for situations like this. So you have the following:

      ESRB - EC (Early Childhood)
      HSRS - GA (General Audience)
      HSRS - PG (Parental Guidance)
      HSRS - 17 (17+)
      HSRS - AD (Adult)

      You can use the HSRS equivalent of whatever the Sega Ratings were originally (prior to ESRB), or if you just wanted to leave those ones with the default 'Not Rated,' I'd be satisfied with that as well, so long as you don't use ESRB ratings for them. I hate it when people do that - it's bad record keeping. :)

      (I'll upload the latest version of the database here, because I'm not entirely sure if the version I uploaded is the latest, it's been a while)

      Now that you mention it, if you're interested in helping with database work, it'd be nice if someone added ESRB information to the rating field for the Sega Genesis database.

      It's actually a lot of work if you do it right, so if you're not interested, I won't hold it against you. I probably won't do anything with it myself either... but I'd like to see it done, nonetheless. :)

      To do it right,  I'd check every game dated 1992 (because sometimes the original database has the dates wrong, and just checking 1994 onward doesn't cut it) to present - and I'd check actual ebay authentic ebay photos.

      You can't count on the box art sets being authentic, ever. Some people in this community care about authenticity, most take liberties and shortcuts. But for the sake of database accuracy, you have to treat it like it's all on you to 'find the truth,' and you can't trust any 3rd party sources.

      You can't even trust the actual ESRB site. Even they've taken liberties - rewriting history, and changing K-A ratings to E. Yes, they mean basically the same thing, yes, K-A was a redundant rating to begin with, but for the sake of database accuracy, it needs to reflect what' was on the box originally. :)

      Again, if you're up for it, and would like to contribute something valuable to the community - I'd certainly appreciate it, as would other 16 bit era fans. :)

      Glad you enjoyed them. A lot of work goes into this stuff, and I if I didn't share them so that other people could enjoy them, it'd be a serious waste of life. :)
