    I don't even know why people use goldleaf...I tried it once and it was really bad. Figured one of the triggers or buttons would let me quickly scroll through files but instead it asked me to like reboot or shutdown.. I don t know.. it was weird

    the right thumb stick allows you to scroll

    It's just a normal zStandard compression with the headers left untouched and a "nsz" header that notes some stuff about how it's encrypted.

    Really, the only reason the format is popular and being pushed so hard (blawar didn't make the format, nor did he make the initial compression tools) is because certain pirates rely heavily on Google Drive which imposes bandwidth limits.

    one reason i see very often is that people don't want to use dz/tinfoil. Not because it's bad - it arguably has better features - but because of the conduct it's author engages in. The software not being open source doesn't affect this positively, either - but that is a lesser issue.

    Actually I still use the very old and first version of Tinfoil by Adubbz (and you're right, also because I personally don't like the author of all these new forked tinfoil), because the USB install (only usb install still work in 9.0 in the old and first version) has a feature I would love see in Goldleaf ( @XorTroll this is for you :wub: ) being able to select many nsp and the installer install them one per one in a row. It's very useful in my opinion. This is something I would love to see in sd and usb install in Goldleaf.

    Unrelated but thanks @blawar for either removing the drm or at least allowing vanilla atmosphere to run tinfoil/hbg without needing the fork.

    Yeah been told about this:
    Our boy blawar may be a little slow, but he gets there in the end, finally getting on board with title mode as the way to go for giving homebrew all the memory it could need. Remember tho kids, the atmosphere devs and the retroarch devs, in general devs who know what they're talking about and don't change their mind every week or so depending on who's annoyed them lately, have consistently recommended avoiding nsp forwarders and using title takeover (holding R while launching a game) to access homebrew.

    Huh? That already works lol. Define a nsp folder in Quark.jar on PC, connect via USB while Goldleaf is running, browse, highlight the defined folder under PC, hit Y and choose install all NSPs in that folder.

    Of course this goes for SD Install as well. Just hit Y on any folder in the file browser and choose install all.

    lol, pot calling the kettle black.
    Look at you gatekeeping the scene like it’s yours (on an open-source project that can be forked.)

    To answer the question that people are asking why anyone used Goldleaf in the first place:

    I could never get Tinfoil or SX Installer to work for me. The only solution I found that actually worked on my Switch for NSP installation over USB was Goldleaf and NS-USBloader (aside from the native XCI support).

    Honestly, I can't remember. I just remember spending hours trying to get Tinfoil working in Atmosphere. I gave up, and bought SX OS and used Goldleaf. Now that the latter doesn't support NSZ, I'll have to give your fork or Tinfoil a try again. I appreciate your work on this.
