PS: Do you think different toolstamp / same ringcode CD need to be dumped?

I wouldn't expect any difference for the same ringcode/different toolstamp cases, though, the ultimate goal is to dump and catalogize every difference.
On another hand, I've met a case, when 2 discs with identical ringcodes had a slightly different data, so you can't be 100% sure about every disc without dumping it - http://redump.org/disc/2554/

Yes REDump base is almost complete but I think I still have a few games to add.

You can add the verifications of the already dumped ones as well.

"HE250124-2   W2R2", I guess, not a single space?

This particular dump should be good, but I've noticed a little DIC bug that led to misdetected subchannels/TOC desync, described it here - http://forum.redump.org/post/68556/#p68556

But keep in mind that for the discs with the real desync (some early CD-ROM² titles) it's important to use the recent DIC version, you can read the details here, if you want - http://forum.redump.org/post/66654/#p66654 (in short, produces an incorrect cue).

I didn't get any error during the dump process and all the other game dumps I did with the same version and that I cross checked with REdump database seem to match.

after dumping hundreds of PCE CD

Would you like to submit your verifications, maybe? smile The ones that have a different ringcode and/or a different offset are especially welcome.

http://forum.redump.org/topic/21717/pce … de-gozaru/ -- this was dumped not with recent DIC version (yet), but the logs show the DIC has used a wrong TOC/Sub desync detection logic there. The TOC points at sector 47869, DIC says the track starts at 47870 according to the subs, but that's wrong. The Q-channel of the sector 47869 contains the EAN data, but the P-channel is filled with 0xFF and the next sector's P-channel is filled with 0x00, that means the sector 47869 belongs to the Track 10 according to the the subs as well.

Thanks! Since you're here, could you also check a toolstamp for your previous Steam Heart's dump? Should look like 2 needle-sratched symbols on the ringcode somewhere between "R1M" and "V".

And for the Bazaru, could you dump it with the latest DIC version? - http://forum.redump.org/topic/10483/discimagecreator/
Thank you!

I've also noticed we already have some "CD-i Digital Video"-labeled ones added into the main CD-i section, like https://www.catawiki.com/catalog/dvd-vi … cret-world

Still unsure about these, whether to put them into the main CD-i section or keep in the separate "Philips CD-i Digital Video" one.
https://www.catawiki.com/catalog/dvd-vi … 83-top-gun or https://www.catawiki.com/catalog/dvd-vi … riot-games -- visually, such movie discs are the same with the same "CD-Interactive" logo on the disc front.

Are you sure about all these are Games? "Naftaline chez elle" cover photos I could find say "Digital Video on CD-i" or is it a different product?

In such scenario, are those Japanese texts usually Katakana transcriptions of the English title?

Nope, the translation.

http://pcengine.co.uk/HTML_Games/Sherlock_Holmes_2.htm - like this ("Images" section)
https://www.amazon.co.jp/パック・イン・ビデオ-カルメ … B0000ZPSPC - or this

The recent Kyrandia II case is a variation of this (the Japanese title presents on the front cover, but written with a much smaller font).

Sadly, you've used the obsolete version of DIC, redump with the latest one, please, yellow status for now. I would say more if you included the subs, but they are missing.

IIRC, both Implode and Meteor Blaster DX are in some weird format with the 1st track is data with the 00:03:00 pregap.

Since the box would most likely be in the language of the region, so I assume it's overall a language-first approach? i.e. Games in Eastern languages use romanized Eastern titles, and vice versa...which we actually agree with, despite our approach are seemingly different.

As I've said, it depends on the case. Japanese titles often have an English title and Japanese one is only on the side of the box or on the spine and the 'main' title is the English one.

The No-Intro rules aren't suited for Chinese releases.. games can have really weird box titles that are completely different from the (often English) ingame title.

Aren't Japanese translations often the same? Also, there are sometimes purely idiotic cases, like this:
http://www.videogameden.com/cdrom.htm?bab
http://www.pcengine.co.uk/HTML_Games/Baby_Jo.htm

Front cover: Baby Jo: The Super Hero
Box sides, spine and CD front: Baby Jo
Ingame title: Baby Jo in "Going Home"

When the ingame title is completely different from the box title - use the box one, the ingame one goes into the comments.
When the box has both Western and Eastern titles and the ingame title is Western - the Western one can be used as main title, another one goes into the comments.
Each case should be discussed separately, though.

Tones can be used, but they can't go into the filenames, you will need to convert them somehow.

Russian translations usually keep the original English title, if I remember correctly, so it's usually fine to use it for naming.

Can't really comment about which romanization system is better for Chinese, since I'm not familiar with any smile I can only suggest something that supports all the dialects, since, as far as I remember, Taiwan uses its own dialect and there are Taiwanese game releases.
