I have a bunch of n64 roms and i want to clean it up, but I dont know what all the codes in the names are. I know what [e],[j],[u] mean but what does [!] and some others...

example: aeroguage (e) (M3)[!]
aeroguage (e) (M3)[f1]
and so on... what is the m3, and the f1.
does anyone have a romcenter dat file of just the main english roms released or know of a list somewhere?
Can someone tell me all the name codes?

Thanks for you help

.............: STANDARD CODE NOTES ::............
: :\
: [a] This is simply an alternate version of a :\
: ROM. Many games have been re-released to :\
: fix bugs or even to eliminate Game Genie :\
: codes (Yes, Nintendo hates that device). :\
: ------------------- :\
: [b ]A bad dump often occurs with an older :\
: game or a faulty dumper (bad connection). :\
: Another common source of [b ]ROMs is a :\
: corrupted upload to a release FTP. :\
: ------------------- :\
: [f] A fixed game has been altered in some way :\
: so that it will run better on a copier :\
: or emulator. :\
: ------------------- :\
: [h] Something in this ROM is not quite as it :\
: should be. Often a hacked ROM simply has :\
: a changed header or has been enabled to :\
: run in different regions. Other times it :\
: could be a release group intro, or just :\
: some kind of cheating or funny hack. :\
: ------------------- :\
: [o] An overdumped ROM image has more data :\
: than is actually in the cart. The extra :\
: information means nothing and is removed :\
: from the true image. :\
: ------------------- :\
: [t] A trainer is special code which executes :\
: before the game is begun. It allows you :\
: to access cheats from a menu. :\
: ------------------- :\
: [!] Verified good dump. Thank God for these! :\
