    Checkpoint is coded poorly. I could go into the technical reasons if you like, but it doesnt matter really. Poor coding summarizes it pretty well.

    No need. I just know that anytime you try to use Checkpoint in app mode it throws you a red screen and asks you not to. Dunno if it then crashes or forces you to quit or lets you continue since i haven't used it in a long time

    Yeah. I guess App can be considered short for Application, i just use it as short for both Application and Applet. But yeah that's what i mean

    Can't see any possible downside to using the same abbreviation for two opposite concepts. Confusing language aside, like I said most devs recommend application mode.

    Again you're talking about applet mode. Checkpoint likes application mode.

    Is there a reason why Tinfoil v5.10 requires the Atmosphere fork/malware again?

    Because blawar demands it to be so.
    No, there's no reason, he just wants it

    He is probably trolling you all :O

    I downloaded 5.1 it because i thought the checks were gone forever... but no... false alarm.
    I went back to the Tinfoil Mod, the app works but the online shop is not working anymore, maybe he disabled it for the Mod.

    Don't think he disabled it for the mod but simply for older Tinfoil versions than 5.1.0 and since the mod's latest release is 5.0 it won't work like it won't with hbg shop 5.0 any longer to see the games.
    Since I still appreciate using hbg shop for updates I'm glad to have SX OS for this.
    I boot into it, install the updates I need and boot back to Atmosphère to enjoy emuiibo and all those other nice things.

    Titledb was disabled for tinfoil versions lower than 5.10. The latest and last version of the mod is 5.00. Why did he do it? Simple, he has really REALLY dumb "feud" with a certain switch piracy server. And when i say dumb i mean REALLY dumb feud

    I mean, it is well within my rights to disable services to old clients. If your mod is doing something with my software that I do not agree with, you shouldnt be shocked when I disable its services to force an upgrade. That is software development 101, everyone does it :) Go write nintendo some hate mail for disabling their online services for old clients :rofl2:

    If you removed it, say, 7 years after release, fine. But 5.0 came out like a week ago

    Anyway, i don't understand why i have to use the patched atmosphere files for Tinfoil if using these files makes some games unplayable, like "Cuphead": this game works perfect with the vanilla atmosphere (and im sure there are other games that stop working by using these files).
    Also, i can't undestand why i have to be forced to use the "Album" for launching HBL and i can't config it to only open HBL thru the buttons and not by default.

    Tinfoil is very nice, but would be much nicer if it was OS friendly.

    @blawar said it himself, the "fork" of atmosphere isn't needed he just forces people to use it because he wants to not because tinfoil actually needs it.
