    I have a question about the structrue of JKSV Savegames. There is a 3dsbrew wiki page about
    savegames (https://www.3dbrew.org/wiki/Savegames). Does this article applies to the savesgames dumped with JKSV and Savedatafiler?

    Furthermore, is it possible to know from which game a savefile is dumped from? Maybe the gamecard ID or something to identify the game.
    If yes, would I be able to this data by using a hex editor or would I need to parse the data even further?

    AFAIK that 3dbrew article is about the low-level structure of the raw data. JKSM extracts the logical data contained within that structure.

    Damn, that's what I thought. So if I understand currently JKSV throws everything away that hasn't to do if the actual save game data.
    That means I can't get any infos on what game the save belongs to or if the savefile is even a 3ds savefile.
