    Hi community. I been searching for a Windows application to get the information of the region / name of the rom. Exists a tool to do that?

    I'm using DiskWriter V2.02 to write the rom in a SD card; In this app is the only way to see the region of the rom.

    By mistake when I download all the roms I erase the region from the name, and I want only have in my library the US roms

    nice and easy, every game has a 4 letter code, if the last letter is A it is for all regions, if it is J it if for japan, E for europe, P for usa... etc

    Actually, it's E for USA, P for Europe. I guess P = PAL? Probably a holdover from older consoles...

    ( I've been meaning to PM you... I've just been busy. D: )

    You can either use a hex editor (offset 0x1150 for a retail ROM) to find it, or if that sounds too scary, you can use 3DSExplorer to read it from a ROM.
