That's really surprising that they're willing to tell you the exact ban reason. Did you have to ask something specific to get that information?
Yeah I acted like a 9 year old who got it for christmas that didnt know shit they were on about, so to act like big smart dogs, they responded to me in detail, Social Engineering at its finest

so they are cheking the titles ID, that is why they can´t Ban us if we restore a clean nand dump. the problem is that we don´t know where is that information on de OFW. maybe we can modiffy it to show that were jut playing one game or somthing like that.

Were you ever online while using Dev Menu? And was it the nsp version (definitive version or other?) of it, or LFS?

Most likely titleid. Possibly occured from using DevMenu and/or layeredfs
So for clarification, do you mean, when connected to wifi, they checked the id of all titles installed and found an illegally installed id and or one that should not have been there?

>something something there's a thread for this

This isn't the first time Nintendo was upfront about why they banned someone. Another user called Nintendo and was told they were banned for going from having error logs to having completely clean error logs. Also, if this is really referring to DevMenu, its not surprising in the slightest but I suppose I could this bit of detail for anyone who remotely thinks they won't be banned for using it.

While I dont disable wifi/airplane mode, I dont believe I actually went "Online" after using dev menu (without a restart), it was 100% not the nsp version, only LayeredFS, i NEVER installed ANY nsp of it

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------

Whats odd, is lets say it was DevMenu that triggered the ban, why was it picked up as an illegal "ROMID"/titleid, if layeredfs on Pokemon Quest? It would only be picked up in logs as pokemon quest's id. :/

People shouldn’t be surprised that their console is banned. IF you want online play den the same platform, buy two consoles. The money saving is still worth it for the people that “test the games before they buy”.

Sounds like there's something deeper going on. Maybe they really know what you're doing even with LayeredFS.

    @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

  • 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

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "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.
