Nintendo accidentally left too many music preview files in the 2.1.0 update, allowing us to select several unreleased courses!
What is a Music Preview File? Since loading a full music file from the ROM may take some time, a separate “prefetch” file is generated from the first ~1s which can be preloaded into memory. This prefetch runs while the full file is loaded.
