Nintendo channel title info file

Hi.
Could somebody advice me on the file format used for describing title info in Nintendo Channel? (.info)
I would really appreciate your help.

Thank you.

You need a hex editor to view those files. First in that file is the common NinCh header. Following that is the info header, and dl list entry. Then there's the video(s) and demo(s) entries if any. Following that is the UTF-16 description text. After that is JPEGs.(A converter for .info was on my todo list for a long time, but I just never started writing it.)

Ok. I see. Thank you for the clarifications.

I have found that "times played" is located around after some structure (0x1a58-0x1a9f) and before some utf-16 description string.
And "time played" is a 32-bit int around 0x4b**. But this offsets vary. So I would really appreciate if someone advised me whether these offsets are anywhere specified in the info file.

Then how does it get updated if it is "read from sysmenu cdb.vff"?

So you're trying to get play times from the .info file to get the records uploaded by NinCh by all Wiis in a region. I wasn't aware NinCh even allows you to see that data. I dunno where that data is stored in the .info file, if anywhere.

EDIT:
I can see something that might be play times related at that region too, but I dunno how to parse/read that data. I never saw any info file with anything like that data before.
