Problem:
Try to launch a game that requires a Linked Account, you get an error and the game will not start.

Solution:
1. Delete the game using Switch settings (saves are kept)
2. Reinstall the game and latest update using Tinfoil, etc
3. Launch the newly reinstalled game, it works without Linked Account

Verification:
I just did this with an old, legit, pre-CFW purchase I had installed.

Stay safe and have fun!

I'd say that if you've deleted and reinstalled a game before then that's going to be more familiar and easier than any new software.

But it's good to have options.

yep but your method will Only work on some games most games need linked account
so why even bother with deleting reinstall and what not when you can use an app and in 5sec be done once and for all

or you can just use one of the apps that allow you to link accounts offline or Tinfoil to emulate account
and theres few other options + only some games work without linked account so you will need one at
some point

Could you mention please, which apps?

I heve never gotten MK11 to work despite many times linking and unlinking my accounts. Ill try this method and report back.

Update: No change with this method. Still stuck at updating game data.
