    Nice. Shame about E-shop games though.

    you need the XCI_header_key in a keys.txt file in the same folder path as the exe. However I can't seem to find it from usual sources so i can't help you here, sorry pal. Maybe someone in the know can show us the right path.

    I literally googled "xci header key" and it was one of the first results. Do you just paste it into the keys.txt document by itself? Because I'm still getting crashes.

    Could you please try with a homebrew like vbanext or pfba? That would be awesome!

    Its on xbins, in dir /SWITCH/PC based software/XCI Tools/hacbguildGUI

    Though im having the same exact issue despite having the keys.txt filled out as described on the github

    https://github.com/LucaFraga/hacbuild

    Says..

    The program will automatically seek a keys.txt file in the working directory in order to gather the only key needed: XCI Header Key (xci_header_key = 01C5...)

    Still crashing.

    Playing pirated games online will of course get you banned. This tool is intended to help repackage xci for game mods for people who want to have fun offline, and hopefully won't be used to ruin online experiences for others.

    When I select a XCI and select Read XCI, the program just closes with no error. Am I doing something wrong?

    So hacbuild needs to be in the same folder the xci files are?

    no the binary needs to be in the same working directory as hacbuildGUI is, I'm adding file existance checks rn, so that there won't be any confusion about that anymore.
