Below is an incomplete but still impressive list of files that show up in the 3DO's NVRAM. This can come in handy when you are running out of space and don't know what to delete or compress.

If you can add to this list there are still more files out there that we need and I'd like to get the sizes of these files too. If you need a disk to look at your NVRAM go here.
Note that "NAME" indicates the player name is in the save file's name.

Here are my contributions. By the way, note that I've never actually played Road Rash or Jurassic Park Interactive; those were on the memory when I got the 3DO unit. I knew I held onto those for a good reason! :lol:

An interesting note is that the memory manager on Game Guru can't fully identify the file CYBERIAWork. The description just says "None"!

CYBERIA.I09 0.1k I.D. Record from Cyberia*
CYBERIAWork 0.3k Milestone Select (i.e. password-style autosave) from Cyberia
EA_RR0 0.1k Saved Game from Road Rash
GameGuru.CFG 0.1k Preferences from Game Guru
icebreaker[levelchart] 0.1k Level Chart from Icebreaker
jpieasyhighscores 0.1k High Scores from Jurassic Park Interactive
jpihardhighscores 0.1k High Scores from Jurassic Park Interactive
jpimedhighscores 0.1k High Scores from Jurassic Park Interactive
jpisavedgames 0.2k Saved Game from Jurassic Park Interactive
PrefsForWolf3D 0.1k Options Settings from Wolfenstein 3D
Wing_3.1.8f.0 3.3k Wing Commander III save game 1
Wing_3_sim_scores 0.6k Wing Commander III simulator high scores
Wolf 0.2k Saved Game from Wolfenstein 3D**

*Note: File name is as it appears, but with your I.D. name between the "A" and the period. So if you I.D. yourself as "MARTIN", the file name will be "CYBERIAMARTIN.I09".
**Note: File name is as it appears followed by the name of your save. So if you name your save "SaveSample", the file name will be "WolfSaveSample".

Thanks a lot! They've been added! Even just the file size helps.

I'd help, but I just packed up my 3DO (and most of my other systems). :(

Same here. Will the next podcast be from your new place?

Nah, that won't be for another month or so, possibly longer depending on when we get our internet activated.

Got one more for you:

Immerce 0.6k Saved game from Immercenary

The number of the save slot appears at the end of the name, e.g. "Immerce1".

Incidentally, anyone have any idea why Wing Commander III is such a memory hog? So far as I can see, all a save file retains is your progress, the morale of your crewmen, your number of kills, and which ship you have selected. Since you can only save between missions, the only one of those which should require more than a few bytes is morale, and then only if the morale algorithm is relatively complex. What am I missing?

Getting ready to fire up The Horde made me want to check what's actually on my FZ-1 save memory, so here are some updates for the list. Most are obvious, but are still worth documenting:

Battle Chess - bc.save
Corpse Killer - CorpseKillerSave
Creature Shock - Creature Shock :mrgreen:
Daedalus Encounter, The - HN_DAEDALUS_0E
Doom - DoomPrefs
F-1 GP (JPN) - F1GP_SYS
Gakkou no Kowai Usawa: Hanako-san ga Kite!! (JPN) - HANAKO01
Hell - Hell Save Game 1
Icebreaker 2 - icebreaker2[levels]
Kingdom: The Far Reaches - KingdomsSave
Lost Eden - LOSTEDEN.S1
Mazer - MazerMan.NVRAM
Montana Jones (JPN) - montana_save_1
Montana Jones (JPN) - montanaaction
Montana Jones (JPN) - montanatime
Snow Job - SnowJobPermanent
Virtuoso - Virtuoso_0_1

There were also a bunch I didn't recognize:

FN3DO_STATE
GA_CBRDT
MC_PB
MUSHROOMtime, SWEETtime, RECYCLEDtime, FIREtime, WATERtime
PIV_MOON_J1
wr2_save1
wrresult

The WR ones might be the Japanese-exclusive Wacky Races 2, I'm guessing. No idea on the others, especially the mushroom/sweet/recycled/fire/water sequence -- anyone have a clue? (EDIT: Aha, those are from Wacky Races 2. Also, I was wrong about the Frankl one, so I've deleted that.)

It'd be interesting to power off Psychic Detective between disk changes to see the file it stores. (EDIT: Done, see below!)

OK, this format might be more useful. I've included pretty much everything in my NVRAM except for repetitive savegame names (file1, file2, etc.), which were all the same size anyway.

Code:
Game                                File                  Size   Comments displayed
----                                ----                  ----   ------------------
Battle Chess                        bc.save                481
Battlesport                         BS_DONT_ERASE          314
Battlesport                         BS_YOURNAME_2_0        192   [YOURNAME = your in-game name]
Bust-A-Move                         MC_PB                   97   
Corpse Killer                       CorpseKillerSave       924   
Creature Shock                      Creature Shock          76   
Daedalus Encounter                  HN_DAEDALUS_0E         721   
Demolition Man                      DemolitionManHighS     208   
Doom                                DoomPrefs              104   No comment available.*
Escape from Monster Manor           MonsterManorData       328   
F-1 GP (JPN)                        F1GP_SYS               232

*bizarrely, this file comment just adds a period to the default message
**full name: Gakkou no Kowai Usawa: Hanako-san ga Kite!!
***full title: Iida Joji Nightmare Interactive: Moon Cradle - Igyou no Hanayome

Also note that Wacky Races 2 = Chiki Chiki Machine Mou-Race 2 - In Space

EDIT: Added the Peter Frankl and Battlesport save games, the Psychic Detective temporary file, and identified some unknown files: five from Wacky Races 2, one from Bust-A-Move, one from Flying Nightmares, and another from Moon Cradle.

The only one I couldn't figure out is GA_CBRDT. Can anyone ID that one?
