How do "regional parents" work?

Post by Hiccup »

I mean this field in the archive:
regparent.png
I think its something todo with region-specific One Game One ROM (1G1R) dats, but I'm not sure how it should be used.

When you create a new archive, there is a drop-down with options:

Code: Select all

How are you supposed to fill this out exactly?
I'd like to know so I can fill it out properly, and so I can add the explanation to the wiki so other people know how to use it.

Those are used to fill the "bias zone" in XMDB.
I will take some time to identify if such field is really needed (it was created and used mainly by Kazumi), as we can easily get the "bias zone" from the "region" field.

Example of its usage: Denmark -> (DAN PARENT) -> Bias: Da
