    Boop 2.0.0
    Become a friend of the snek... Now on switch!

    Boop started as a C# implementation of the "ServeFiles.py" for FBI.
    Then the switch came along... and then Tinfoil came along... and then Tinfoil used the same implementation...


    Naturally the snek had to follow the path.

    Boop allows you to send .NSP files directly to Tinfoil through your Wireless Local Network. (It also works with .CIA and .TIK for the 3ds, but this is the switch forum :P)


    [​IMG]

    Features
    • Easy to use interface.
    • Multi-File booping
    • Auto detection of your Nintendo console IP address. (trying to match your MAC address)
    • Full Drag and drop support. (Drag those files to wherever you want boi)
    • Name your files whatever you want. I can take it. Even emojis! GO WILD!
    • Works on computers connected to multiple networks (or with multiple network adapters)

    Nerd notes:
    • Doesn't require administrator privileges.
    • The webserver runs on EmbedIO.
    • The code is licenced under "The unlicence". That means is free. (Free as in Anarchy).
    • Getting info from inside the .nsp files require keys... Will look into it but it's not my priority.

    Downloads:


    I will use this spot to thank the hacking community on switch and 3ds. I know this program could be done 1000 times better in other languages, platforms, graphics and a lot of improvement. This is what I can do to give back to the community and if you think you can make a better Boop by all means do

    You are now a friend of the snek.

    (Any problems or crashes you have, you can post them here or create an issue on github.)
    (Special thanks to Adubbz for putting up with my silly questions)

    I must have made a mistake somewhere. Will be fixed for 2.1.0 :wacko:

    (dragging to the exe file does work if it helps)

    Great work!
    Is there a chance to a linux or macOS release?

    I used c# which means it's a loooooong shot.

    Try contacting this guy. He did a "port" (actually with some improvements) for mac. And the way tinfoil works is similar to how fbi did it. It shouldn't be too hard. https://github.com/smartperson/3DS-FBI-Link

    I had success installing a few small NSPs with this, but it seems to be struggling with larger files.
    Stardew Valley, Celeste, Axiom Verge, I Am Setsuna, Inside, Salt and Sanctuary installed fine.

    Street Figher 30th Anniversary Collection, Ittle Dew 2+, Pac-Man Championship Edition 2, DOOM, Breath of the Wild and sadly Snek Pass all failed
    It gets stuck at "Installing xxx.cnmt.nca to storage Id 5" on Tinfoil.

    Can't quite place where the issue is arising, but anything below 2GB worked fine.

    Are you installing any DLC? or are these all base games?

    Also, which FTP server are you using?

    Base games. I installed a couple of updates successfully too.

    Not sure, I thought I just set a port and my Switch IP (as displayed in Tinfoil) in Boop. Port 8080 (default) if that helps, should I try another?

    I havent looked at his source code, but if he's just wrapping tinfoil's python script, it does indeed work with larger files. I would diff his script with native tinfoil's, if its the same, report a bug to tinfoil's github.

    Huh... it should work with larger files...
    Will try later and see what's going on

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    "Setup a ftp server"

    That is easier said than done.

    Having said that, be my guest :)

    Yep, having the same issue with files > 2GB

    That aside great tool though, very intuitive to use.

    Glad to hear it's not just me with larger files. As others have mentioned, small NSPs are no problem. When attempting a larger transfer the process hangs with no progress. Task manager shows no CPU usage and no network activity, so definitely looks like Boop is the culprit. In any case, great addition to the arsenal and hopefully that 2GB limit can be fixed. Thanks!
