Hello,

So I am relatively new with CFW for the Switch and I have a question or two in regards to connecting to the internet on my Switch. Current have Atmosphere CFW installed on my system with emuMMC setup (FW 8.1.0) and I wanted to connect to the internet to use some of the homebrew apps that require me to connect to the internet. I read this guide (click here) and I plan to use that method so my system would not connect to the Nintendo servers.

So my question is:

1. By doing 90DNS, will this stop me from receiving update nags (I have not received the update nag yet on my system)?

2. Aside from 90DNS, I assume people got banned due to having pirated games. Is this true if I turn on the game and connect to the online servers with the pirated game or does it work differently that I can get banned just by having a pirated game in my library of games?

3. When I had set up emuMMC, I had realized that my user is linked to my Nintendo account. Does this increase the chances of getting banned?

I want to be sure with my actions and I don't want to regret my actions (and I apologize for posting quite a bit for tedious questions that could be answered online but I would like to take my chances and ask users directly for answers.)

1) Yes.
2) Don't install pirated games and go online. You will be banned sooner or later. Don't even think about it.
3) If your emuMMC is offline, you won't have problems. But you could also format your emuMMC to unlink.

Thanks for the reply. So I can assume, as an example if I have installed a pirated game, just leaving the wifi on with 90DNS setup, and not even turning on said pirated game can "possibly" get me banned?

    the Doom one sounded fine

    They used the Sega CD files and somehow Frankenstein them into the PS1 Japanese game and it works
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    There is 2 Doom games for the PS1 I think the 2nd is like just a crap ton of levels
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Still fun though
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Loved both of them
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I think it's like 114 levels
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Honestly if you have the ability, I recommend getting all the PS1 games and playing random games, some of the hidden gems are really great

    thumbs up

    SNES, PS1, Genesis, NES, TG-16, Arcade, are systems I consider worth downloading the entire sets.
