    I've been playing Super Mario64 DS from my NDSTT Card. I'm aware of what the .nds and .sav files are - but have not yet seen a .ARP file. Does this have something to do with the game being multi player?

    I don't recall dropping this .ARP file onto the card - Any ideas?

    Super Mario 64 DS (v01) (U).nds
    Super Mario 64 DS (v01) (U).ARP
    Super Mario 64 DS (v01) (U).sav

    Thanks in advance

    Put it on a file host so we can look at it.

    I've delete the file, but I'll play with the DSTT action replay settings/buttons and see if I can generate the file again. Action Replay sounds pretty close. If I can generate the file again, I'll host it straight away.

    I got my hands on the .ARP file. I opened it with notepad and it seems to contain cheat information that I setup prior to launching the game! Here is the file for anyone interested...

    Download 0056 - Super Mario 64 DS (v01) (U).ARP @ http://www.filecrunch.com/file/~wlrnoi

    So, does the action replay feature only allow cheat codes to be used, or does it have some other "replay" type feature affiliated with it?

    Action Replay is a cheating system that has been around for years. It's never had anything to do with actual replays.

    Don't worry, it just does that when you pick out a cheat from the DSTT and then you press save on the cheat screen, I get those to when ever I save the cheats. The .ARP file is just so when you want to play the game again, you don't have to pick out the cheats for the game again.

    Am i seeing this right or is there no text in this post? or any replies?

    i am guessing its an additional save file

    I searched around *which isnt very hard, why you didnt do it yourself i dont know" Its a file created when you use the built in cheat manager

    "ARP" stands for "Action Replay". It's where the menu stores the cheat settings for a particular game.

    They are not needed unless you use cheats for that game.
