    Then I guess I will have to wait till everything is completely released.

    Wait so this doesn't have sigpatches to install "backups" and other stuff like that?
    I have only seen SX shit all around and no one has come forward with a clear answer for this yet.

    The developers behind Atmosphere have stated numerous times they don't have any intentions on releasing any "sig patches" to enable backing launching as they are against piracy. In fact, they usually banned or warned anyone asking for any help or otherwise related regarding piracy on their server.

    So that means no NSPs at all with it?
    I mean, it's not only games that are in NSP, a lot of homebrew apps are going this way now, and given how they require sigpatches to run, guess that won't be an option in Atmosphere at all then.

    Or is there a workaround to have an Atmosphere with sigpatches?

    The unofficial builds of Atmosphere already have the "sig patches" people desire and have been out for months such as tomGER's SD files or RajNX :P

    So there are forks of Atmosphere that add the sigpatches to it?
    Shouldn't be much a problem to bring the forks up to date and then add back that if they've been doing that for a while, right?

    I'm really out of the loop with CFW on the Switch, sorry lol

    Oh, if there's no NSP support for apps, then why the hell would anyone use this for homebrew?

    I think they know what it is, they seems to be deliberately trolling.

    I hope this only hardens the developers and truly we all appreciate the hard work they've done.

    tomGER's SD files are going to be announcing V10 which will encompass support for Atmosphere 0.7 so you can wait for that. Not sure what rajkosto has plans for with RajNX but tomGER's SD files have been around for longer so I trust those more than RajNX.

    No NSP support, watered down emulator apps that can't take full advantage of the RAM necessary for full speed, among other issues.
    What a steaming pile of bullshit.

    Switch game backups, I couldn't give a rat's ass about, but apps?

    If one can't load nsp's and only run homebrew apps, that's marginally better than OFW. I love my retroarch in my main menu. I wanna see those homebrew games as nsps so they can get that extra memory

    Guess this one is not for me.

    But good effort, nonetheless.

    Yeah, well, morality with homebrew and console hacking can get stuffed. Again, I'll buy Switch games, but I'll never support
    the piss poor handling of NES Online or any other old school game on Switch. Why? Easy, because Nintendo has their head so far up their ass, they just won't do a good job.

    That's just it, RetroArch for example, absolutely needs to be in NSP format for the complex cores like N64, PSX, otherwise, they won't run well at all, ever. Preventing NSP app loading is a total dick move IMO.

    No NSP app support, no go.

    I know it won't run commercial executables right now, but I'm excited for the loose executable launching. If someone hacks it to load games, that would be a competition to the TX .xci loader.

    Not a fork needed, it'd just be an IPS file you'd put in the patches folder.
