Are these things like barcodes? I wanted to add the EU one for Virtua Tennis 2 but it's not enabled.

They're currently disabled because implementation is broken, and there's been sufficient discussion to muddy the waters of what these are intended to be.

My understanding is that they're presently meant to be a header checksum of sorts to identify unique titles by actual dump files rather than searching full data every time, but they've also been considered everything from UPCs to platform catalogue numbers at different times.
We're curious to see how new projects use TGDB API.
If you have a new public project, please provide a link to it so we can highlight cool new applications! 8-)

Thanks for the reply. It's useful to know about this history.

Does the db cater for multiple versions of games based on region?
