    Is it possible to force the Switch to screen record a certain game? like maybe there's a flag or whatever somewhere that you can just tick it to "yes" and boom you can record?

    Lost my elgato and I'm currently barred from screen recording a certain "Ultimate" game

    You can save the fights with “Y” button and if you wants cut it.

    The screen recording are blocked to avoid spoilers of WOL.

    There HAS to be a way to force it. We know the Switch can handle recording Smash gameplay cause the feature is built into the game itself. There's gotta be an on/off switch somewhere, i wish i had the knowhow to find it myself

    Since there HAS to be a way, record it with your phone? Get another elgato? I'm sure when the official release is out you can record just fine. Wait for that maybe?

    "HAS to be a way to force it" Did you miss that part? I added some color for ya

    Recording with my phone will drastically decrease the quality, that should be a no-brainer. I'm not sure if you do any sort of content creation, but phone video recordings are a terrible method of showing gameplay footage. Getting another elgato isn't the desired option, as it costs a good amount of money. Waiting for an official release to enable it (obviously) isn't the goal here, as I want to toggle the feature myself. An Official release still won't show me how to turn the feature on or off

    I read your post just fine, thanks for making it nice and bold though. You wanted a way to do it, I gave you the obvious way you can do it. You didn't specify you wanted a pixel perfect recording. And you don't have to be a "content creator" to know recording on a phone won't keep OG quality. Wait for an official release of the game, or go through the games files and figure it out.

    Game files haven't been fully extracted yet (as far as i know), nor do i know how to do that or toggle recording myself, hence why I came here for help.

    You gave obvious methods that weren't asked for. Hell, you didn't even answer the question. I specified forcing the Switch's screen recording. Not cellphone recording, not Elgato recording.

    C'mon now.

    Since you want a straight answer:
    Wait until the game releases.
    I gave you other options to reach your goal. You did not want them. You cannot screen record on a pirated early release copy of Super Smash Bros Ultimate. There are no ways to do this as of right now, hence me not giving you the answer you were looking for. I hope you find a way.

    I still want a CFW feature to either increase the Jpeg quality to 100%, or save as .PNG files instead. I'm pretty sure it can be done, just not sure why it HASN'T been done YET. I'd also like to see saving of screenshots at the upscaled 1080p, not re-shrunken back down to 720p... If I'm docked and take a screenshot, I want the full upscaled resolution of that screenshot.

    And since I'm on my soap box, why the fuck hasn't anyone killed the 30 second recording limitation yet? GET IT DONE!!!
