    Hello!

    I have a N3DS 9.2/10.6 Emunand. I'm having a random issue when installing CIAs to my emunand. Whats happening is that sometimes when installing non genuine CIAs like injected VC games, they are overwriting the icons of my genuine CIAs (ones I actually paid for). The genuine games are still installed, because I can still see them in system settings, if I uninstall and reinstall them the icon will show back up. Its hard though because I have a lot of titles and sometimes I can't remember which ones have been overwritten, I only know because instead of putting the new titles at the end of my icon list, they will show up in the middle somewhere. Has anyone seen this before and anything that can be done? Thanks in advance!!

    Have narrowed this down to snes custom vc games that overwrite valid titles on my emunand. Someone else must be seeing this?

    How are you injecting them? Make sure you set the unique ID of the injected .cia files to something different than what's already installed to your console.

    The unique ids were ok, because FBI would have told me it was already installed. I think I figured out what it was. I was over the 300 title limit set forth by Nintendo, so when I got to 301 and beyond that is why they were overwriting other titles on the home screen when being installed by FBI. It just happened to be at the time I was only installing SNES games, so I thought it had something to do with those roms. I figured it out when I uninstalled some legitimate titles that had been overwritten and tried to reinstall from the eshop, I got the message that I had reached the limit of titles. In FBI however it will not let you know that you are past the limit, apparently it just overwrites others on the home screen, even though the overwritten titles stay installed on your sd card, you will have no way to open them.

    this is exactly why. If you reach the max limit, it will overwrite, starting from lowest size to largest size (AFAIK) until you manually delete a title.
