>The disc title is "ops2m demo 73/benelux". ops2m = Official PlayStation Magazine.
The benelux demo is a regional exclusive for that serial number / data variant. A different number is on the sleeve, the correct chronological number in the series. Again, you're ignoring the fact that there are TWO demo #s for these releases and picking the one that is NOT linear to the local series.
>Using the magazine titles and issue numbers doesn't appear to be a good solution, especially because different magazine issues from different countries can have the same disc.
Its not just "Magazine titles and Issue Numbers" its the Demo Disc # on the sleeve. The sleeve demo numbers are ordered linear, the demo disc numbers are not.
>especially because different magazine issues from different countries can have the same disc.
These are already tracked inside the master (UK) entries - which are completely dumped, however this does not relate to regional exclusives.
> The solution that you provided for those cases of just picking one of the countries / issue numbers to go in the filename (and thereby ignoring the other ones) is unacceptable imo.
Its better to use one accurate title, than an inaccurate one. These regional exclusive discs are NOT released as the titles you're putting them as. You're ignoring the proper regional order and title/Demo# on sleeve, while defaulting to UK titles that don't even appear ANYWHERE on disc or packaging.
Here's an example of why your system of numbering is terrible.
Looking at AUS by going off the Disc Label Demo #s for issues 10-15, this is how your system would title them:
By going off the Sleeve Demo #s:
You're giving these entries Demo #s that came from re-used artwork, rather than their proper release order (sleeve demo #'s).
There are TWO Demo #'s on all these releases. You're choosing the bad system to act as title entries.
