    Ok, I made some custom injected VC wads for NES and SNES games almost a year ago, and at the time many different apps were coming out all at once for this purpose. This was before there were any "all-in-one" type apps, and it's been so long that I've pretty much fallen out of the loop in this area. Now, I have several VC injected WADs on my computer that I'd like to find out the 4-digit ID's for. I have some of them installed on my Wii and I tried looking them up using the latest AnyTitle Deleter (mod) and they don't seem to even exist on my wii according to it, but I know they are installed. I'd like to find out what ID's they each use so that I can create my own custom database.txt file for Anytitle Deleter. Please tell me there is an app that I can just run and then open the WAD file and it will give me all the info on it (or as close to that as possible, lol) [​IMG]

    Unpack the WAD with WAD Unpacker (from BFGR wadtools) and look at the TMD/TIK with an hex editor.

    well, I was able to find the ID's and I added them manually to the database.txt file for Anytitle Deleter, but low and behold they still didn't show up when I ran it. Weird. Actually, only a couple VC games that I had installed are showing up in Anytitle. I was trying to free up some space on my 2gig SD card to make room for more Wiiware titles on it since I just upgraded to 4.0, so I wanted to get rid of all the WAD files on it and use Anytitle to delete tickets instead of WadManager (which requires me to keep the wad files on the SD if I want to delete them. I wonder if this is just some sort of bug in Anytitle or am I just doing it wrong?

    Additionally, just open the .wad with a hex editor. The 4-letter Title ID is located at hex offset C20.

    WadID5 can also identify the ID of a wad. Might be more simple than opening the file in a hexeditor.

    How could an emulator help identifying the TitleID?

    I believe he's saying why do Rom Injects when you could run them through an emulator without the hassle of creating channels.
