I'm having trouble installing anything since I last updated atmosphere & firmware (firmware 11.0.1 AMS M.18.1 awoo 1.3.4). I've got the latest sigpatches from TJ (am booting fusee-primary). I don't think this is an awoo problem, goldleaf choked too, but maybe someone can help me figure it out. The first time I try to install an nsp awoo says "Failed to install", "OpenFileSystemWithId:124: Failed to open file system with id: :SdCardContent://registered/000000FB/<longnumber>.nca. Error code: 0x00000202". If I try the same nsp again, it throws a fatal error, 2162-0002 program: 0100000000000012. Any ideas? Cheers!

Samee! I dont know what yo do

Sorry for dump but the newest switch nsp /nsz format needs to be support by Awoo installer

especially for dead sx os 10-11.0

This format is strange, but i don't think it will be used by all in the future, only on some.
DBI Installer and tinfoil support it, but it will not that hard to get support on others installers as the hard work is done by console not by installer

Yep it wouldn't be hard, someone could add it to those installers today, but I don't know if anyone will because they've basically been abandoned since last year. This suggests that not only because of the new format but also in general, people would likely be better off using an installer that gets regular updates. And preferably not one known for hostile code and hate speech... So... DBI.

Is DBI open source?

No it's not sadly. I've yet to hear anyone say anything negative about its behaviour or trustworthiness tho.
For people who want open-source on principle, updating Awoo would be a good way to go.
Thats a shame. Its the best installer Ive used, the MTP responder makes everything so easy. Hope it eventually goes open source, or that awoo and the like step up.

Is a legit choise to keep close source his code. Is a personal choice and has to be respected. DBI is a very good installer
I will work on my title manager that for now dont have an installer but is planned to add and duckbill007 gave me many hints. I dont think it will be as good as DBI and with all its good features but is open source.

Fixing Awoo installer for this titles is very easy just fill the sparsinfo field that was never used before (this file format is not new, is old from FW 5 thanks @duckbill007 for suggesting it)
The rest is managed by Atmosphere that support this from long time ago

(fix for goldleaf is 1 line of code as far as i know)

Awoo installer completly ignore the sparseinfo field, it use it as padding bytes, since is system that manage sparse i think is easy to get that installer works for sparse storage nsp

in nca.hpp the struct have

C:
u8 _0x148[0xB8]; /* Padding. */

so is ignored

    very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes so i think i made the right choice

    there was also a sony with worse local dimming and the glow was really apparent

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is non linear anyway. 100 nits is about 50% of the peak output of a 10,000 nit display.

    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

    that's not important

    i can't tell the difference

    but i can certainly tell the difference with black crush if i'm watching a scifi movie and i can't see wtf is going on

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
