    I haven't been able to find anything on this. I know that Wii and N64 games are online, but what about everything else? Thank you!

    I know that the Manual.bfma file itself is an SARC archive that can be extracted using UWizard (I discovered this myself). The output is an XML file and a set of .arc files using some unknown format.

    I used my (really old) Windows PC to find this, after extracting the Manual.bfma file from my Super Mario World VC (I think) using FTPiiU Everywhere. I opened the Manual.bfma file in HxD and saw that the first four bytes were "SARC," so I tried opening the file in UWizard, which extracted the files mentioned above.

    As I said before, I have no idea what format the .arc files are.

    I see. I got the same arc files as you. I am going to mess with them a bit and see if I can find anything. Thank you.

    we could find someone with an nintendo account who would share this program with us , but thats pretty far fetched

    Warning: Spoilers inside!
