Redirect Updates

Sorry to have revised some of your recent redirects. Can you provide some info on your sources / reasons for the updates. Some of the redirects that were cleared seem to be indicated as GameIDs from sources like GameTDB. Kolano (talk) 08:09, 20 September 2015 (CEST)

First I apologize for making you confused and sorry about my editing style, I should have just "add" or "move" redirect links, not "delete" old one.
So, back on topic, GameID.
For some reason, Unique ID(first 3 letters) or Publisher ID(last 2 letters) of games changed often at releasing in Japan.
For example. (attached my photo for correctness)
/// Changed Unique ID ///
GR8*69 → GRZJ13 (MoH:Rising Sun)
Properties redump link Disc Image Package Image
GCI*69 → G4PJ13 (The Sims)
Properties redump link Disc Image Package Image
Also Spirits & Spells, Star Wars: Rogue Squadron III, Universal Studios Adventure or maybe 2 more 3 titles have another UniqueID.
/// Changed Publisher ID ///
GKF*GG → GKFJMS (Chaos Field)
Properties redump link
Other good example, many of EA Games Publisher ID "69" has been changed to "13" in Japan. Like NBA Street one.
Why GameTDB.com have wrong ID of Japanese title? I have no idea...
Cleared up the misapprehension? Thanks. DanbSky (talk) 14:51, 20 September 2015 (CEST)
Thanks Dan, I'm glad to see your additions were well sourced. I'm still a bit uncomfortable with the redirect removals though. I'm not sure if they are wrong, or if some titles may have more IDs than expected (i.e. multiple discs for MoH:Rising Sun, multiple release versions, etc.). I restored the purged ones, so I think things should be OK, but please re-purge/fix things if you can confirm them as being bogus. However, I believe the redirects were initially populated by a script based on a dataset of GameIDs that had actually been seen by Dolphin, so again I'd hope most of the pre-existing ones have some support.
