I've sent a bunch of patches to the maintainer of the 'file' program, which detects file types based on "magic" numbers. These patches include adding support for GameCube, Wii, Mega CD, Saturn, and Dreamcast disc images; Nintendo 3DS, Sega Master System, Game Gear, Neo Geo Pocket (Color), Atari 7800, and Vectrex ROM images; and various improvements for existing console detection. It also includes detection for PVR, PVR-Xbox, and GVR image files. All of these patches are now available as part of file-5.28.

I'm still looking for more ROM formats that are either not supported, or are supported but don't show as much information as they could. If you're able to compile the 'file' tool from https://www.darwinsys.com/file/ , I'd appreciate it if you could run it on your ROM sets (and/or other game-related files) and let me know if there's anything that shows up as either "data" or as a ROM image but doesn't show much information other than that it's a ROM image.
