Sega of Japan's Catalogue System

I have, but all covers are considerably battered, so it's nothing worth drooling for. I got it very recently, through a friend abroad that was getting rid of his collection, and I believe it's the UK version. I'd pay loads for the complete PT version, but I never seen one listed anywhere. I can't recall ever seeing it on the stands and it's an astonishing cover, so there is really no excuse as to why I didn't see it or buy it back in the day besides never crossing paths with it.

I've documented region codes for most of the rest of the world - the ones found in this topic, and some others I've run into. There's some big gaps.
Really this should probably reflect all the details regarding manuals and boxes and cartridges but that's not my area of expertise.

According to TmEE's doc, there are some Technosoft games which use T-19 in the header; this is strange, seeing as I can't find any actual releases using T-19. What games use this?
I don't see T-19 in my MD ROM headers nor on any Japanese Tecnosoft box:
Herzog Zwei (1989) JP - T-18023 | US - unmarked; possibly published by Sega | EU - unmarked; possibly published by Sega | other regions - do they exist?
Elemental Master (1990) JP - T-18043 | US - unknown, though probably will have a Renovation number | EU - no release | other regions - do they exist?
Thunder Force III (1990) JP - T-18033 | US - 18036 (T-18036?) | EU - no release | other regions - do they exist?
Devil Crash MD (porting) (1991) JP - T-18053 | US - ? | EU - ? | other regions - do they exist?
Thunder Force IV (1992) JP - T-18063 | US - 1143 (G-1143?) | EU - unmarked? | other regions - do they exist?
 Sega System C-2
Thunder Force AC (1990) tfrceac doesn't seem to have one except for a tecnosoft internal serial TSAM-001; have to check more and check tfrceacj
for these, it is unknown if there was any non-japanese release
Nekketsu Oyako (1995) JP - T-1802G
Kyuutenkai (1995) JP - T-1801G
Hyper Reverthion (1996) JP - T-1803G
Steeldom (1996) JP - T-1805G, T-1806G (special version - what is it actually called again?)
Thunder Force: Gold Pack 1 (1996) JP - T-1807G
Hyper Duel (1996) JP - T-1809G
Thunder Force: Gold Pack 2 (1996) JP - T-1808G
Blast Wind (1997) JP - T-1810G
Thunder Force V (1997) JP - T-1811G, T-1812G (special pack), T-1814G (satakore)
Kumitate Battle Kuttu Ketto (1998) JP - T-1813G
So where does the T-19 come from?
(maybe a grand unified list of serial numbers would be nice)

but I am not going to maintain that by hand, and neither should anyone else. We need a way of extracting that data from bob/release templates and generating the list automatically. Same with lots of things.

EDIT: And T-93 might be Sony Imagesoft according to the PAL MD version of Mickey Mania (T-93216-50).

The world is bigger than the Mega Drive - I don't even know if games for other consoles store T-series numbers in code.
The information we want will (in theory) be stored on individual pages by the time we're done - it's just the process of getting Mediawiki to scan through and compile a list of its own which is the tricky part. It can be done, it just hasn't been... yet. Partly because DynamicPageList doesn't work properly on Sega Retro (or at least didn't last time I checked)
Point is there should be no copying and pasting lists of games, then trying to construct tables out of it, then adding every piece of information by hand - it would take months.
