MotivationEdit

Nintendo assigns GameIDs to titles released on their platforms. Various communities use them to document the games. The Dolphin emulator has some more information on GameIDs. —Dispenser (talk) 03:38, 4 September 2018 (UTC)

  •   Comment Looks interesting. I would suggest to rename it Nintendo GameID − although I understand that it is the name, as it stands now, it sounds like the scope is broader than it is. Jean-Fred (talk) 18:48, 10 September 2018 (UTC)

  • @Dispenser: I have reformatted the examples to create the property but realized that the regex provided does not match the following example: RMGC01. − Pintoch (talk) 07:15, 14 September 2018 (UTC)
    • GameTBD refers to it as "CUSTOM". I've struck it as there is a known data pollution problem (as described on the Dolphin Wiki) with GameTBD. It could be possible the "C" region refers to China, a market Nintendo never tapped, but it was added to the Dolphin Wiki 5 weeks before launch so I don't know if that assumption is true. —Dispenser (talk) 12:48, 14 September 2018 (UTC)
