  1. I'm not entirely sure, to be honest. It was that way when I found this community.

    If I had to guess, I would suspect it is because Super Famicom is such a huge presence (lots of translated games), that people didn't like the idea of cluttering up their list of American games.

    I personally prefer them split, as I enjoy having a separate theme and wheel for the Japanese games. But if you want to combine the two lists, all you have to do is download Don's HyperSpin tools (I prefer the beta release for this task) and use the List Merger tool.

    It would be strange to have a Sega Genesis and a Sega Genesis Japan wheel, but for some reason, having the SNES stuff  split doesn't bother me. But then on the other hand, I also have a Sega Saturn Japan wheel. There's no wrong way to build your system. :)

  2. I appreciate your concerns Bain408. There are two ways to look at it.

    1. Game names should be 100% accurate to what is on the box

    2. Game names have already been established, and it sets the community way back when they have to stop and rename all of their images, themes, and videos, just because someone wanted rename the games. 

    All of the game names were kept the same from the last database, unless I found something particularly offensive (I don't think I did this time). For the community to move forward we need everyone on the same page. Ideally if you and I collaborate on a project, we could share media, and everything will be named according to the database, so it's a simple matter of dragging and dropping the files where they need to go, instead of spending 30 minutes (or 3 hours if you are inexperienced and don't know about Don's HyperSpin tools) renaming files.

    I have mixed feelings on the tags. The No Intro team uses them in their naming conventions. It doesn't do us much good. I would prefer them not to be there. But in the grand scheme of things it is a trivial matter. If enough people disagree and voice their concerns however, I am open to eliminating them. But anytime names get updated or changed in an official database it is a hassle for pretty much everyone.
