    Default Game file naming conventions

    Dear community members,

    I can't seem to find a naming convention FAQ anywhere. Please excuse the n00by question, but in addition to the title, year and developer, what is the additional information typically included in a game file name?

    I have a few examples:

    3d24 (1993)(L.K. Avalon)(pl)[b].atr

    Roadwar Europa (1987)(SSI).st
    Roadwar Europa (1987)(SSI)[a].st

    I'm guessing the [pl] in the first file indicates Polish language? If somebody could provide a link to a key, I'd be like
