    So a bit of background info on what I'm talking about. AM2R (which is the fan made remake of Metroid 2) was built using GameMaker Studio. Up until recently, we didn't have an Android port so people had to take a port of another GameMaker Studio game (Undertale) and replace the data files to get AM2R working on Android devices. Basically the same concept as LayeredFS.

    So fast forward to today, there's a Switch port of Undertale out, and someone has been able to use LayeredFS to replace Undertale with another game called Downwell (another project created with GameMaker Studio). The process was exactly the same. Just switch the data files (which share the same file names) and voila, everything works (except in handheld mode only). Which leads me to wonder if AM2R could work in the same way.
    It will require someone to install the Undertale NSP, then use LayeredFS to "mod" the game with the AM2R files.

    I'd more then gladly try it myself but I don't have Undertale or have LayeredFS working on my ReiNX CFW. Is anyone else here able to and willing to try this out?

    Nice. Fingers crossed, it would be cool to see it running on the Switch.

    He means the exploit that people used to get gms games running on android. It worked with undertale and am2r, so they theorize it should work on the switch ver of undertale as well.

    Oh I got confused. OP says that Undertale was replaced by AM2R, not that both of them were replacing the other game.

    I assumed Undertale was on Android as that was what AM2R replaced to get it working. I guess I was wrong. Undertale itself was hack job.

    That is made in Flash, not game maker. Simple logic.

    There is a AM2R NSP out there I helped @PiracyForTheMasses make. Works fine but does not save.
