Found at the path d1\routefree\bbgames\release\pvt_20031022\zh\00000004.app in the 2020 iQue leak is what seems to be a late localization prototype of Xingji Huohu, the Chinese version of Star Fox 64. The file path includes a date of October 22, 2003, about a month before the iQue version's release.
Using the program iQueCrypt, it is possible to decrypt the .app file into a working ROM using the following commands:
iquecrypt.exe extract -cmd 00000004.cmd iquecrypt.exe decrypt -tk 00000004_title_key_enc.bin -key <iQue COMMON KEY> -fiv 00000004_title_key_iv.bin iquecrypt.exe decrypt -app 00000004.app -fkey [dec]00000004_title_key_enc.bin -fiv 00000004_content_iv.bin
Note: The iQue common key can be found in the original SUXXORS release notes for Xingji Huohu.
The only noticeable differences are minor, pointing to this being a near-final build.
A different font is used for the Nintendo logo upon boot, there is no ® symbol, and the years are slightly closer to the Nintendo logo.
No grey background is used behind the text during the intro cutscene.
