    Is there a simple PC (W10) program that shows me certain CIA file details, like the title ID, Serial, etc.

    I had hoped that 3DSExplorer could do this, but appearantly that one only works with .3DS files (at least with me).

    This is a Windows Explorer extension. It has everything you need.
    EDIT: Weird. It claims to only show info about .3ds files, but i have this, and use it for CIAs. :unsure:

    Hm, installed it (Win10 X64 user), game icons are showing up, but no additional .3ds or .cia file information visible. Too bad. Is there another tool?

    Make sure the games have their actual name:
    Code:
    Super Mario 3D Land - RIGHT
    SM3DL_haxxed_by_xyz_cryptofix_regoinfree_EUR - WRONG
    Also, it might not yet work with newer games, as it relies on a database.

    Wait, it does work! I just had to activate the 'detailvenster' in windows explorer. That's a nice view, never used it before. :shy: Anyway, thanks for pointing me to this very useful explorer addition.
