I detected (actually it was Romulus Rom Manager) a bad entry in the openMSX database:

This Wedding Bells dump entry:
[dump][rom][hash]3b1a450960b65b752f1bd3098fecc371dfa23a36[/hash][/rom][/dump]

has the same SHA-1 that the Kabish conversion to ROM of Who Dares Wins 2. Yo can download it from msxblog and check it.

Or maybe is a SHA-1 collision between both games Smile

I don't have it. We should ask the person which added that Wedding Bells entry in the database, in order to know if it's wrong (likely) or not.

Another one:

The RX Editor YRM-302 ROM from https://hansotten.file-hunter.com/uploads/files/YRM302.zip is registered in the database as Running Naked in a field of flowers (hash: d98ab2e25b738f956b4240a96360b88ab6f72093).

In both cases the names are close in alphabetical order, Wedding/Who Dares and Running/RX, so it seems a copy/paste error or similar...

The who dares wins download from above are cas or dsk versions and not ROMs Smile anyway - since I trust your information and seeing that the game id was 1 off in the SQL romdb I have adjusted the entries and generated a new version to download. I'll also push this to the openMSX repository. Thanks for keeping an eye out... I must say ... 2 mistakes on almost 4196 entries ain't bad Smile

I verified the RNFF entry and it's indeed the editor.

Nice!

In the other hand I find out a lot of dumps, mainly translations, without any flag or remark indicating that. I'll pot them here.

There are two ROMs of Wedding Bell(s) available and they are often classified as released by Colpax (Nippon Columbia):

sha1: 9dddbce94fb98776ad01870b98f44687b8b068c9
sha1: aa2aaa193cddd15c230684499d68bf73f715ed9c

but Colpax has released a version on tape only.

These Roms are probably either the dump of the Sony version or the tape converted to Rom.

There is also a version that was sold on Takeru machines in Japan.

Does anyone know more about these versions? It would be nice to know if it is possible to tell them apart.
