    A long-awaited update for @XorTroll's virtual amiibo sysmodule for the Nintendo Switch has finally been released! Emuiibo 0.3 can be considered a big step forward compared to the older versions as it doesn't require NFC dumps to work anymore. You've read that right: all you need to make an emulated amiibo now is just its unique ID, then the homebrew will then take care of the rest! This was made possible thanks to a new file/directory structure introduced in this version, which also allows you to choose whether to use your virtual amiibo for all games or only a specific one. If you've been building up a dump collection and are worried about backward compatibility then don't be, as all previous formats are still supported in 0.3.

    But wait, there's more! Emuiibo 0.3 also includes a brand new tool called emuGUIibo, which is an easy to use PC application used to create and customize your virtual amiibo. It will also take care of fetching the correct unique ID for you using a public online API, so you won't have to worry about that either! An ID is just a hexadecimal number shared between all figures of the same type and is not encrypted nor used as an encryption key, so getting them from the internet should be legal (think about it like a game's title ID).

    As usual, here is the full official changelog:

    This is great news that no dumps are needed anymore and we can make our own.

    From the article:
    "It will also take care of fetching the correct unique ID for you using a public online API, so you won't have to worry about that either! An ID is just a hexadecimal number shared between all figures of the same type and is not encrypted nor used as an encryption key, so getting them from the internet should be legal (think about it like a game's title ID)."

    Is anybody encountering a bug when activating an amiibo (either by rstick+ up or right) keeps cycling through the amiibo endlessly till you input down?

    I understood this way:
    Tools needed to piracy anything in the world:

    1 - people
    2 - will
    3 - copyrighted stuff

    This tool allows you to use the ID of an amiibo you own. If you use for another purpose, its your problem.

    So I'm guessing you can just load in a txt file with every amiibo then just pick the one you want from a list? If not, this should be added.

    Would I consider this piracy? Your not getting the figurine, I mean, it's just a few bytes of a nfc code. This is like the lowest level piracy there is, also considering some of the amiibos get single prints and cost exorbitant amounts of money.

    Yep, I agree. Amiibos are just toys, for toy collectors or for kids. NFC codes to use in certain games was implemented by Nintendo just as an incentive to get people to buy them, because they were afraid that they wouldn't sell as just toys. :rolleyes:

    Anyone understand how this part works?

    "Amiibos can be placed inside /emuiibo/amiibo// to be only used in that specific game. Amiibos outside those directories will be used on any game."

    View attachment 175013

    I want make some amiibos only work in zelda, some only work in mario odyssey, and goes on.. This 8-bit link was generated by emuGUIibo, but how make it work only with botw?


    I used to amiiswap them, but now seems to be a good way to swap among specific amiibos when a specific game is runnig.
