Character icons can now be fully animated in various ways, play once, loop anim or play animation upon variation selection.
With this feature, you can place multiple characters in one slot. Limit is 255, double pressing START will move to the next entry in the slot.
You can change value of many hard-coded strings, such as button names or game mode names.
Tag mode (cut from 1.1) is restored and can be fully utilized. A new CNS param 'tag' was added which allows you to check if mode is tag.
