I did a run with -str 2 on the whole n64 softlist. Here's the results:

I have been told, that somebody is looking at crashes and games bailing out, so I thought it might be worth doing this run. Will also be doing one with a higher -str value to find more stuff.

Edit: FYI the configuration I used for the testrun

On a side note vprowrs2 fatalerrors when you enter the character selection screen before it shows the preview of the character:

PC=000019CB: Unimplemented op FF06EA4B (3F,0B)

The other games based on the same engine (wcwrev, wcwvsnwo, wwfnomer, wmania2k, vprowres) also bail out with various errors or freeze.

As expected raising the s-tr value brought up more issues

NOTE: nflqb2ku caused a hard freeze, so I had to kill the process.
