Emulation Center (TOSEC) is a retrocomputing initiative dedicated to the cataloging and preservation of software, firmware and resources for microcomputers, minicomputers and video game consoles. The main goal of the project is to catalog and audit all possible kinds of software and firmware images for these systems. To support this, the TOSEC Naming Convention (TNC) was created. The TNC is the set of standardized rules used by TOSEC renamers to provide a consistent, clear and concise naming scheme for cataloging any image from any system. This document serves to cover and describe the entire naming convention and how it should be used. Revisions Revision Date Description v1 20/07/2008 First version of this document, based on the srcinal TNC with some updates to the naming format, mainly changes in language, media, media label, dump flags and some others. v2 24/12/2009 Update to country and language codes. Country codes now follow the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 standard (2 letters, uppercased), while language codes use the ISO 639-1  standard (2 letters, lowercased). Cleared some rules in country/language flags usage, updated systems flags and dump descriptors lists. Fixed errors in Title field regarding The and A cases. The use of + to separate groups in dump flags was dropped. v3 27/08/2011 Introduction rewritten to be consistent with TOSEC website and Wiki page. Forbidden Characters section revised. References to ZZZ-UNK- rewritten to make it clear 'unknowns' should always be avoided (as well as a return to the more strict convention of ZZZ-UNK- rather than ZZZ-UNK ). Expanded examples in Version section. Expanded and gave proper descriptions to possible flags in Demo section. Year renamed to Date to better reflect the flag usage. Examples expanded in Date section, including making it clear '2000-01-0x' is an acceptable date. Added proper descriptions to Development Status Flag possibilities. Added proper descriptions to Media Type Flag possibilities. Dump Flags section greatly expanded to more accurately describe the purpose of each flag, as well as adding more examples and clarifications. Current Issues appendix moved to separate document since inappropriate to include in a published spec. Lots of general cleaning up and improvements to general language, punctuation and grammar.
