    That happen because the donor game have a low savedata size, for example fornite only have 5MB (and use part of it with her own save) and every zelda autosave use 1MB then only some of the saves are maked correctly.

    Fifa worked for me with Octopath travelers demo before sx os was released. Everything works fine except it freezes if you save career mode.

    I tried for two days to get career to work.. It simply didn't. I would invest in an sx os license if I were you. The world cup update is massive, iy fixed the generic models of hundreds of players. And you can't update the game with LayeredFS.. So go for a license man, it's well worth it.

    Well, you, indirectly kinda. Although running from romfsdir works, it's just not advisable for now with big, patch-worthy games (e.g. BOTW updates and dlc)...
    Besides the number of files, it didn't start anymore after using the patched files.

    I thought patching romfs.bins would work with hactool but I was mistaken, sadly.
    When "patching" romfs.bin, it just straight up replaces your basegame romfs.bin with the update's romfs.bin.
    We need to be able to rebuild .bins or merging them.

    Hum...Saw the specs which seem good:
    - Latest SDK version (a big+)
    - 16 mb save size (cool, not bad at all)

    But some games (looking at Pokken) will require larger save size.
    Were you able to run that one on it?

    What's the title id for this demo?


    EDIT: Nevermind i got it, tried Bayonetta 2 & i get an error in a black screen. Then again i can't get this XCI of bayo2 to work with any donor because this XCI was probably not dumped properly?

    If you already have it installed, just open checkpoint and it'll save a folder with the name.
    Here it is: 1006ee00ee38000

    Well , we can patch any base.nca or baseromfs.bin with update.nca (patch romfs partition) as hactool have this function. sadly dlc.nca is romfs partition as base, not patch romfs partition , that's why we can't merge them all as romfs.bin.

    Alright, so I fixed my issue I posted a bit ago, botw now runs on both SMO and SRR without an issue, saving works.

    i want to test layeredFS patch to get games.. i have got thew questions..
    1 - if i use a game (example Minecraft using a demo as donor) and i save successfully, and i switch game after, im going to corrupt the MC savedata?
    2 - After using layeredFS (offline), and i dont wont to get banned (example reboot->OFW->online), what i have to do?
    edit: 3 - How to manage to get to work the game?

    root sd->Atmosphere->titles->0100xxxxxxxxxxx->exefs (folder) and romfs.bin

    it should be like this?

    1 - No, only if other games use the same exact save type. Most of the games have their own naming convention or filetype for saves. -> Saving with other games will not corrupt MC savedata
    But the assigned save space for the donor game might run full (varies from donor to donor, check your horizon os settings).

    2 - We don't know yet. Running clearlog (SDFiles firmware launcher) might even raise a red flag for nintendo. best to stay offline.

    3 - Yes. But you also have to change the main.npdm with a hex editor. Go back to the first page of this thread.
