    Check any VC SNES game's app-files. One of them (about 2MB big) contains a big list of game titles of SNES games, including stuff like EarthBound, SUPER MARIO RPG, KIRBY SUPER STAR and KIRBY'S DREAM LAND 3. What could this mean?

    I think all of those were rated by the ESRB, so perhaps as they're played through and rated they're added to the emulator's internal database.

    I kinda doubt the ESRB played Japanese versions of various games including Fire Emblem 3 and 4.

    It's probably something like an internal compatibility list of games' headers...

    So they're probably coming soon on VC.

    I don't know about "coming soon," but i believe they are planned titles. Wasn't MarioRPG on the list a year ago to be added? As in, it popped up on a couple of gaming blogs saying "MARIO RPG COMING SOON (with this news)" and then, well, it'll be added at some point?

    When I mispacked a wad I saw this list aswell. Contained all the codes aswell, like JAPE.
    I think it's a list of "ported" to the VC, maybe needs some translating in manuals etc. They will probably release them eventually but it might take some time as they only release a couple per week.

    It's more likely to be the name for the SaveGame. That info should be in the 05.app, but isn't in the SNES.
    It also includes the game's ID, so I'm quite sure about what I've just typed [​IMG]
