Title: Games Lists (errors and additions)
Post by: the_wizard_666 on August 01, 2006, 04:57:57 am
I was checking through the game list...there's a few noticable errors there...and the links to Wikipedia...gay.  Should do your own list page with your own info or something.  I'd be willing to take on that project, although it'd be slow going.  Still, I'd do it for ya man, if you want.  Might be fun :P  Let me know if you want, or I could just email you some edits or something.  Up to you.  Just figured I'd take some of the workload off ya :P

Haha, that'd be simply amazing if you could (That is if you wanted to.). Jason started that as an incomplete game list, but it seems like he hasn't done anything with it in a while, so I can have you take over some of our load. It'd be great. :D

Sure, count me in.  I can do some work after I get home from my paying job ;) but having plans tonight, the major stuff won't get done until tomorrow.  I like the majority of the info, but some of the corner blurbs are a tad long, might be better to link it to a blurb on the bottom of the page, but I'll get to that in time.  Just do what you need to in order for me to get started and I'll get cracking tonight (gotta leave in 15  :-\ )

Yeah, I basically just need to be able to edit the page, it'd be much easier on my end than starting over :P

Hey, do unlicensed NES games like the Sachens come in NTSC or PAL format, or neither, or both?
Title: Re: Games Lists (errors and additions)
Post by: JC on October 28, 2006, 01:26:08 pm
Nobody's got an answer to my question? In other words, do I list the Sachens as "NES NTSC", "NES PAL", or both, or just "NES"?
Title: Re: Games Lists (errors and additions)

I think it's both.

72 pins Sachen games can be NTSC or PAL.  I have some Sachen games without a switch that don't work on my NTSC NES toaster but some that do work.   Later Sachen games have a switch that let you choose the region to make your NES compatible.  I bought 4 of my 72 pins Sachen games at a flea market here in Canada.  My other games come from France and UK but most of them come from Nes.god who bought them directly from Sachen.

Post by: JC on October 30, 2006, 09:38:15 pm
Curious, jbholio. Well now. :-\

So, I'm working hard on the carts list. It's coming along nicely. I started off by using the Wikipedia list as the base, now I'm confirming, adding and changing the info based on the Famicom history book I've got, and the next step will be to confirm as much of the info as I can using info from carts, manuals and boxes. :P From there, some translations, which I *coughmanuel* might need some help with. :)
Title: Re: Games Lists (errors and additions)
Post by: JC on November 03, 2006, 11:33:13 pm
Carts list is 98% complete. In other words, it's pretty much as complete as it's gonna get. So, check it out. :-*

Next up is the disks list. :) Should be a lot easier since there's so few disk games.
Title: Re: Games Lists (errors and additions)
Post by: JC on November 04, 2006, 09:58:34 pm

I have begun to add product ID codes to each of the games on the games lists. BIG THANKS TO ROCKARD FOR PASSING ME THE CODES! :) Right now I've filled out all the FDS games codes I know. If anyone has a code I can add to the list, please pass it along.

Well I do kinda...  I found this site by searching for part numbers for my Famicom Disks on Google, and when I typed in the part number, it  usually linked me here. I know a few other collectors at RFGen use it as a cross reference also.
That list is incredibly helpful when you have a stack of Japanese games to go through, and don't know what they are called. It's also one of the few lists of Famicom/ FDS games on the internet, so I'll try to contribute to it whenever I can.

Hmmm...Well, the first "Fire Emblem" should probably be better written in roumaji as "Fire Emblem: Ankoku Ryuu to Hikari no Tsurugi".  That's what's traditionally seen on the Internet, though your romanization of the title is pretty much close enough.  Just a little thing I noticed...

EDIT:  I can get really picky, so for Super Mario Bros.:  "NES PAL" is written as "NES PAL".  Notice the lack of italics on the L!!!
Title: Re: Games Lists (errors and additions)
Post by: JC on February 11, 2007, 10:39:12 am
Thanks, guys.

All games (and name spellings) were confirmed using the most popular English games list book (Tokyo's Metro Museum of Photo) But that book has mistakes, so it's possible that some of the games show on both of the lists simply don't exist. I've left them on just in case.

And Josh, don't worry about being "picky." It's great to have someone other than myself catch those little things.
Title: Re: Games Lists (errors and additions)
Post by: DevIancE on February 11, 2007, 09:18:15 pm
Someone might want to put some kind of note beside the questionable releases until they are confirmed, so that people either know that they might not exists, or someone might be able to confirm if the titles exist or not.
Title: Re: Games Lists (errors and additions)
Post by: JC on February 11, 2007, 09:57:50 pm
Those that are really questionable have had a (?) for some time. I don't think there are any like that on the disk list, because most have been confirmed with the book. But, in time, if we don't find any info on the ones missing some info, they'll be removed. The lists are works-in-progress.
Title: Re: Games Lists (errors and additions)
Post by: Josh on February 12, 2007, 10:03:48 am
Speaking of that book, what exactly is it anyway?  I wasn't able to find anything on Google after a couple of minutes...What does it have in it?  Where can I get it?

Not exactly all, but they did really good. There's a few missing, and at the end of the book is a big pic of a disk with a list of disk games of which they weren't able to take pics. It's great, though, because I think it's the only one in English.

You have two games marked as Momotaro Densetsu.  Actually only one is Momotaro Densetsu (Peach Boy Legend).  The other is Momotaro Dentetsu (Peach Boy Train). 

Peach Boy Legend is the 1987 one as you have and Peach Boy train is the 1988 one.  Peach Boy Train is HFC-M2.
   
Now that this is cleared up, I'm sure that many of us will be able to sleep better at night...   ;D

I was looking at some screenshots while bored at work and I noticed these two games were missing their NES counterparts:

Matendouji - This was released as Conquest of the Crystal Palace on the NES.
Metal  Flame  PsyBuster - This was released as Metal Mech: Man and Machine on the NES.

Found a spelling error on the Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! page (http://www.famicomworld.com/Games/Game.php?dbid=717).

One is in the first paragraph on the fifth line; the word "charged" should be changed to "charges".

Another is in the last paragraph at the end of the first line; the word "released" should be changed to "releases".


There was also an error on the Punch-Out!! Special page (http://www.famicomworld.com/Games/Game.php?dbid=880).

For some reason the links leading to the Shrine section and the Holy Grail section do not work. I'm unsure if this is happening for anyone else but I've been able to reproduce the error multiple times. It's a standard 404 error, nothing major.

The game listed as Geppu Maden is actually called

Getsufuu Maden

(notice the long "u" in Getsufuu, Geppu is just wrong, I checked Konamis flier for the game)


interesing info: "geppu" means "burp"  ::)

One field that I would love to see added is a Japanese required field.

Something like

None - Game is entirely in English.
Little - There is a little Japanese (names, stages, weapons, etc) but game is still playable.
Some - There is Japanese, but the game can still be fumbled through.
Heavy - So much Japanese that it is unplayable without Japanese knowledge.

Well with those names, the one name (Justice Bao) is just a translation of the Chinese name.  As for the two spellings of the Chinese name, it is just two different Romanization schemes, but is more or less the same.  Personally I like "Bao Qing Tian" better than "Pao Ching Tien", as the Romanization scheme is (these days) more popular, I guess.

On another note, I do think the Kiddy Sun in Fantasia cart should be added to the list as a licensed release, since it was.

Title: Re: Games Lists (errors and additions)
Post by: Guardian on February 09, 2016, 03:11:13 pm
Hey there, folks,

I have a couple of questions with regards to the game list.

Firstly, what's going on with the dates recorded for these three games?

01,02/18/1988   Tanigawa Kouji no Shougi Shinan II (http://famicomworld.com/game/1103)
01,02,03/27/1990   STED: Iseki Wakusei no Yabou (http://famicomworld.com/game/1032)
05/01,02,03/1991   Palamedes II: Star Twinkles (http://famicomworld.com/game/832)

--

Secondly, I assume that these groups of games are just releases and re-releases of the same game on Family Computer and Disk System:

Tanigawa Kouji no Shougi Shinan II (http://famicomworld.com/game/1103)
Tanigawa Kouji no Syougishinan II (http://famicomworld.com/game/1459)
Tanigawa Kouji no Syougishinan II: Tsumeshogi/Tsugi no Itte (http://famicomworld.com/game/1460)

Igo: Kyuroban Taikyoku (http://famicomworld.com/game/1353)
Igo: Kyuu Roban Taikyoku (http://famicomworld.com/game/498)

Could we please decide on a consistent way of Romanizing the titles?

--

Here are other examples of inconsistent title formatting between different editions of the same game.

BurgerTime (http://famicomworld.com/game/134)
Burger Time (http://famicomworld.com/game/1279)

TwinBee (http://famicomworld.com/game/1166)
Twin Bee (http://famicomworld.com/game/1474) (if those are in fact the same game by Konami.)

--

In looking for other Release:Re-Release pairs I noticed that you have listed
Pro Yakyu Family Stadium (http://famicomworld.com/game/875) as R.B.I. Baseball and
Pro Yakyuu Family Stadium (http://famicomworld.com/game/876) as R.B.I. Baseball 2
but both are in your records as being released on the same day (12/10/1986) and are spelled nearly identically so something seems amiss.

--

In the Rockman/Mega Man series, on RockMan 4, the 'M' in 'Man' is not capitalized as it is on all of the other games.

RockMan
RockMan 2: Dr. Wily no Nazo
RockMan 3: Dr. Wily no Saigo!?
Rockman 4: Aratanaru Yabou!! (http://famicomworld.com/game/913)
RockMan 5: Blues no Wana!?
RockMan 6: Shijou Saidai no Tatakai!!

And if the text for the NES NTSC and NES PAL Mega Man 4 is not automatically updated when the Japanese title is updated, then be sure to capitalize the 'M' in them as well.

Mega Man 4 (nes ntsc of Rockman 4: Aratanaru Yabou!!)
Mega Man 4 (nes pal of Rockman 4: Aratanaru Yabou!!)

--

I'm guessing these two games are in the same series. The last phrase in Japanese appears to be the same but is formatted differently.
Tantei Jinguji Saburou: Shinjuku Chuoukouen Renzoku Satsujin Jiken (http://famicomworld.com/game/1462)
Tantei Jinguji Saburou: Yokohamakou Renzokusatsujinjiken (http://famicomworld.com/game/1106)

Consistency in formatting is always appreciated.

Post by: P on February 13, 2016, 10:01:05 am
Here's my two cents:

For Japanese romanization, Hepburn is usually favoured (sho instead of syo, chi instead of ti etc) since it will generally be pronounced correctly more often than Nihonshiki by people that know English. But since it requires a macron above the vowel (ā, ō etc) which is not easy to type on a keyboard, for signalizing a long vowel, a double vowel is sometimes used instead for long vowels.

Pro Yakyuu Family Stadium and Pro Yakyu Family Stadium are both the same game. It's just that the later skipped the macron (it should really be Pro Yakyū Family Stadium). So either use macron or double vowels, but don't skip it.

TwinBee - Here I think a space would usually be used to make it consistent with English space usage. Even when the title on the cover and title screen may be stylized without a space. But for example Rockman is written in one word (it's a name after all) from what I have seen.
Title: Re: Games Lists (errors and additions)
Post by: Guardian on February 13, 2016, 06:05:43 pm
I've been creating a spreadsheet of the game list and wanted to put each NES NTSC and NES PAL version of a game on the same row as their Japanese counterpart.

In doing this, I noticed that several of the licensed NES games are not marked as
NES NTSC of _______ or
NES PAL of _______ but rather
NES of _______ (no region/format specified)

In an effort to focus on these, I created a set of columns for their data and set it between my NES NTSC columns and NES PAL columns.

There are seven games from this set which I've placed on the same row as the corresponding Japanese release claimed by the FW's game list.

Crash 'n' the Boys: Ice Challenge (planned nes of Ike Ike! Nekketsu Hockey-bu: Subette Koronde Dairantou) (http://famicomworld.com/game/508)
Double Strike (nes of Twin Eagle) (http://famicomworld.com/game/1165)
Earthbound (prototype nes of Mother) (http://famicomworld.com/game/756)
Jack and the Beanstalk (planned nes of Jumpin' Kid: Jack to Mame no Ki Monogatari) (http://famicomworld.com/game/541)
Squashed (prototype nes of Ninja Jajamaru: Ginga Daisakusen) (http://famicomworld.com/game/791)
Super Pitfall II (prototype nes of Atlantis no Nazo) (http://famicomworld.com/game/60)
Taro's Quest (prototype nes of Jajamaru Ninpouchou) (http://famicomworld.com/game/523)

Of these seven, six of them are prototypes or planned but unreleased games.

The exception to this is Double Strike (http://famicomworld.com/game/1165) which Famicom World's game list claims corresponds to Twin Eagle (http://famicomworld.com/game/1164).
In looking at Wikipedia (DS (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Video_Entertainment#Double_Strike) TE (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twin_Eagle)), MobyGames (DS (http://www.mobygames.com/game/nes/double-strike/release-info) TE (http://www.mobygames.com/game/nes/twin-eagle/release-info)), Bootgod (DS (http://bootgod.dyndns.org:7777/profile.php?id=1044) TE (http://bootgod.dyndns.org:7777/profile.php?id=1094)), and actually opening the roms of these games, I would have to say that this correlation is false.

--

Separately, I am wondering whether it makes sense to have those six unreleased western ports listed as licensed, even if they were to be ports of licensed games.

Further on the topic of whether games are licensed or not...

Can anyone confirm that these NES games which are listed on Famicom World as Licensed actually are?

Three of these four NTSC games which don't correspond to a licensed Japanese release (as currently listed by Famicom World) are adult oriented which makes me suspicious that Nintendo of America would ever license them officially and I don't see any sign of 'Licensed by Nintendo' when I boot them.

From the NES NTSC of _______ list:
Bubble Bath Babes (nes ntsc of Soap Panic) (http://famicomworld.com/game/997)

Hot Slots (nes ntsc of AV Pachi Slot) (http://famicomworld.com/game/66)

The NES region-not-specified list below which do not correspond to any licensed Japanese release (as currently listed on Famicom World) contains many combo carts which don't strike me as something that would normally be officially licensed either.

I've found a couple of Publisher/Developer discrepancies:

Topple Zip (http://famicomworld.com/game/1470) is recorded by Famicom World to be Pub/Dev by "Jareco"
At first I was merely going to report this as a misspelling of Jaleco, but after looking at a video of it (https://youtube.com/watch?v=1iw1EUWVwZU&hd=1&t=31m24s&list=PLRXRxTxAgO0exLF2bTgcHCzJ-kIaVn4By&index=23), it seems clearly published by Bothtec.

--

Othello (http://famicomworld.com/game/1406)'s initial release on the Disk System is correctly attributed to Kawada, however
its re-release on Famicom cartridge (http://famicomworld.com/game/816) a month later is attributed to "Kawanda".

On another note, I do think the Kiddy Sun in Fantasia cart should be added to the list as a licensed release, since it was.


Going to add an entry for Kiddy Sun.  Who would you say are the Developer? Publisher?  Any idea on a release date (month and/or year)?

Guardian, thank you for the detailed list of corrections.  I have made the following changes:

Post by: fcgamer on February 26, 2016, 09:09:44 am
Twin Eagle, there are two of them on Famicom.

One is by Sachen, and it is unlicensed.  It is equal to Double Strike on the NES, I can confirm it.

The other is a licensed game, which I sadly don't have in my collection.  I have an extra unlicensed version, if someone wants to make a swap, lol.

Kiddy Sun, I think you got it right Joe.  I could get my gf to look through some of the old magazines I have and see if there are any text blurbs about the Kiddy Sun (contest/event?), but she is quite busy and I rather not ask.  Era Tech is just Hudson in Taiwan / Hong Kong, they would be the publisher, and developer would be Hudson of course.

Thanks for the updates, especially when you weren't feeling well!

--

As you and fcgamer point out, it was the two different titles both called Twin Eagle that was tripping me up. I appreciate the clarification.

--

As to the Rockman series, if you feel Rockman is more appropriate than RockMan, that's fine.
I only ask that whichever formatting is chosen is consistently applied to all six games.

I do realize that this game list is Family-Computer-centric, but do you intend for it to be comprehensive with regards to all NES releases as well?

I ask because I don't see a few NES games such as those where the NES received a different port than the Family Computer did such as:
Tengen's (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z0VKg_dJzzQ&hd=1&t=41m28s&list=PLRXRxTxAgO0exLF2bTgcHCzJ-kIaVn4By&index=45) or Nintendo's (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-FAzHyXZPm0) US versions of Tetris (both completely different ports to Bullet-Proof Software's port (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yl4s8B-OwAo&hd=1&t=8m23s&list=PLRXRxTxAgO0exLF2bTgcHCzJ-kIaVn4By&index=40) for Family Computer)
Tengen's port (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cAwSXZnroGA) of Fantasy Zone (again, different than Sunsoft's Family Computer port (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Udt0Av_zldY&hd=1&t=29m49s&list=PLRXRxTxAgO0exLF2bTgcHCzJ-kIaVn4By&index=20))

I also am not seeing NES games which don't (to my knowledge) have a Family Computer or Disk System edition, such as:

I haven't collected enough data from enough sources yet to track down any other NES exclusive titles at the moment, but I'm sure you understand my question.
Title: Re: Games Lists (errors and additions)
Post by: UglyJoe on February 26, 2016, 07:53:13 pm
For games like Tetris and Fantasy Zone (and Maniac Mansion!) I will probably add a note to the respective game pages saying that it is not the same as the NES release.  One of the more recent Wordpress updates broke my ability to add notes and screenshots and I haven't gotten around to fixing my code yet to handle the changes.

The list will not be comprehensive in regards to NES releases.  As I said before (possibly in a confusing way), the NES titles on the list are actually just synonyms for Famicom titles that are in the list.  The NES games just link to the parent Famicom game in the list.  So for the NES exclusives which have no Famicom counterpart, there would be no listing for it at all.

Some NES exclusives do have FC counterparts in pirate form (you can get a pirate FC cart with Legendary Wings, for example), but those are not currently represented on the list.  If those were to be added to the list, then I would probably add an NES synonym to the pirate cart's page.  I'm getting theoretical there, though.  I want to get the Licensed stuff as completed as possible before deciding on what to do about Unlicensed stuff (which is way more complicated).
Title: Re: Games Lists (errors and additions)
Post by: fcgamer on February 26, 2016, 08:41:19 pm
Joe, if you ever decide to go more extensive with the unlicensed and straight out pirate stuff, I think you could use the checklist that I compiled as a starting place.  For most people, the list would be too extensive, but for a database representing the definitive Famicom source for westerners, I think it would be quite appropriate.
Title: Re: Games Lists (errors and additions)
Post by: Guardian on February 26, 2016, 09:03:12 pm
Joe, thanks for the clarification.

I did understand what you'd said earlier about the NES titles just being synonyms for the Famicom and/or Disk System releases but it wasn't clear to me that the inverse could not also be true in cases of NES exclusivity.

Is there any technical limitation which prevents us from adding more fields to each game's entry which would allow us to add as much metadata for NES releases as is available?

--

fcgamer, is this (https://fcgamer.files.wordpress.com/2014/05/unlicensd-fc-list-v-1-2.pdf) your checklist that you mentioned?
Title: Re: Games Lists (errors and additions)
Post by: fcgamer on February 26, 2016, 09:17:04 pm
Yeah, that's an old one for unlicensed games only.  Here is a list for everything:

With this list there are some problems too, though, but I have a revised version with maybe 100 more entris on it, sitting on my hard drive,.  I just never uploaded the new version.

Joe, if you ever decide to go more extensive with the unlicensed and straight out pirate stuff, I think you could use the checklist that I compiled as a starting place.  For most people, the list would be too extensive, but for a database representing the definitive Famicom source for westerners, I think it would be quite appropriate.


Yeah, I would definitely ask you and some other folks around here, since the whole unlicensed scene is not at all my area of expertise.

Is there any technical limitation which prevents us from adding more fields to each game's entry which would allow us to add as much metadata for NES releases as is available?


The game list backend is all custom code, so there's nothing stopping me from doing much of anything beyond time and effort.  If I were going add more fields for NES titles, though, then I would probably just add entries for the NES games themselves, since many of the fields would overlap and there would be a one-to-many relationship in many cases (a single FC release has an NES NTSC, a NES PAL, a NES Asian, etc).

I would hope to see pirate carts kept away from the main site. Or kept in a separate section at the very least. Or make famicompirateworld.com as a sister site.

Well pirate games is quite a big part of Famicom World already, but I agree that they should definitely be in a dedicated list for unlicensed games considering their inconstancious nature.

A fact I would also like to see remedied. Having the information available yet clearly separated would at least be a step in the right direction.

Please to not derail this thread into a discussion about the merits of pirate carts.  That can be done in another thread if you'd like to.

Keeping the pirate stuff in a separate list may become somewhat of a necessity depending on how we'd want to track stuff.  Again, though, that's theoretical at this point.  In the rough FW timeline that I have in my head, getting pirate stuff onto the game list is waaaay out there.  Like, years away.

No idea what you guys here are talking about.  Do you mean the unlicensed original games, or actual pirates, like Flintstones 2 on Famicom?

yes, i agree that would be a very important distiction to make.
unlicensed originals are in a completely different league than bootleg copies of official releases imho,
and should not be thrown into the same subcategory if there is to be a categorization of these matters at all.

Thanks for the hard work!  I updated the blank IDs in the game list to use these values.  

Thank you also for the notes about potential duplicate entries, etc.  I will scrutinize and resolve those soon.

---

- Deleted Aso Maze - was dupe of Yu Maze
- Deleted Asumitsu Land - Looked like mispelling of Asmik-kun Land but also said it was a FDS game.  Didn't see anything like that so deleted.
- Battle Rush is a Datach game and those don't seem to have IDs on them.  B-AI on the cart is some kind of Bandai logo.
- Hao-kun had a weird spelling of Square, yeah
- Deleted Honmei since it was a duplicate of Keiba Simulator - Honme
- Deleted the extra Nazoler Land game -- we have entries already for the four games that do exist
- Agree about Space Shadow -- does not seem to have an ID on it
- Deleted Densen Rundesu, since it was a weird dupe of Utsurun Desu

happy to have been helpful! :) if you need a hand for something else, I'm always available!
I will post the list of potential errors / games for which I have not found information after the update of the forum software

Hi! It's good to be back on the freshly renovated FW!  :)  As promised, here's the list of all the doubts and possible errors that I've encountered while searching the ID's. If anyone can help with some information or corrections on these titles it would be really appreciated!

-All Datach games (Dragon Ball Z: Gekitō Tenkaichi Budokai, Ultraman Club: Spokon Fight!!, SD Gundam: Gundam Wars, Crayon Shin-Chan: Orato Poi Poi, Yū Yū Hakusho: Bakutō Ankoku Bujutsue, Battle Rush: Build Up Robot Tournament and J-League Super Top Players) don't seem to have any kind of ID, but Crayon Shin Chan has "BA-SHINCHAN" in the ID section, witch i'm almost sure is wrong. The second thing is that Crayon Shin-Chan was released in both Datach Cart and standard Famicom cart on the same day. The famicom version isn't present in the list, and the only ID on this version is a "27" on the side of the box.

-post Sky Kid Namcot games don't seem to have ID's, or rather, apparently they have it but I'm unable to understand where this ID is on the cartridge/box/manual. For example I own a copy of Splatterhouse: Wanpaku Graffiti and the code is reported to be "NAM-FSH-4900", but on my copy this code is nowhere to be found! Where's the ID on this games?

- "Nantatte!! Baseball: Kogame Cassette '91 Kaimakuban" and "Nantatte!! Baseball: Kogame Cassette OB All-Star Hen" don't seem to have any king of ID on the cart or the box.

-Karaoke Studio, Karaoke Studio Top Hits 20 Vo. 1 and 2 don't seem to have any kind of ID on the cart or the box.

-Safety Rally = (I've looked at some photos of the cart and the blue outer case and, unless it's on the map of wich there are no good resolution photos, it seems to have no ID)
-Curotsukusu, Nakiri Yagyou, Solitaire, Suzugou (no informations found on these games. Wrong names? Possible repetitions?)

-Gyuwanburaa Jikochuushinha 2 (possible repetition of Gambler Jiko Chuushinha 2 by Asmik?)
-Katsuba Densetsu (possible repetition of Kagero Densetsu published by Pixel Soft.?)

-Kiddy Sun in Fantasia (it doesn't seem to have an ID, but from the photos online there are at least two label variants so maybe some version have one)

-Madar no Tsubasa (possible repetition of Wing of Madoola? The names are a bit different but it's the only game that comes up in a research)

-Space School (all games in the series don't seem to have ID on box or cart)

-Star Soldier: Time Trial Special Soft (I only saw one photo of the cartridge, and it seem to have no ID)

-Wakusei Aton Gaiden (I was unable to find any photo of the box/instrucions for this game, if they exist, but judging from the disc it doesn't seem to have an ID)

That's all!

On a sidenote, maybe we should add something when the ID is not present? Like a "///" or "NO ID" in the designated section? just not to leave a blank in the list.
