I've managed to find various skin mods but none of the tutorials that have the switch version explain how to incorporate them. I was hoping someone that has working skin mods for the switch could clue me in to where the mods must be placed, exact name of files and dir placement in order for the mods to be recognized. If anyone can help me get the mods running on my switch I'll PayPal them $20

What games are you looking to mod? I have mods running for Super Mario Party and Pokemon Shield.

You may use a Homebrew App like SImpleModManager to easily manage and install mods.

To do that, you need to create a folder on the root of your SD Card called mods. The folder structure is /mods/<NameOfYourGame>/<NameOfYourMod>/<ModTreeStructureFromAtmosphereFolder>.

I'll explain the Mod Tree structure folder marked in bold here. The Mod Tree structure depends on each game, but usually it is /contents/TitleID/romfs/Archive/>mod here<. This shouldn't be too hard to figure out, because the mods that you donwnload will usually already be placed in the romfs folder and you just have to create the game name folder, mod name folder, contents and TitleID folder outlined in bold.

You can find SimpleModManager here: https://gbatemp.net/threads/simplemodmanager-a-mod-manager-for-your-switch.548658/

I'll be honest; my examples are based on those you can find on that thread, but I can provice you with some personal examples if needed.

Feel free to ask any questions of you need more help.

  • Asia81 @ Asia81:
    There is nothing much to show, it's a grey switch with dock, all accesories and a screen protector, in a very good condition without any scratch on the screen.
