    This is the first time I've been incorrect about anything in my life and I'm emotionally devastated that you've pointed it out. Repeatedly.

    Like I said, I'm glad you're happy with the situation for end users, and don't know or care about any of the hassle going on to make it happen. Enjoy.

    Sure it was never a literal utopia, there'll always be bickering about stuff. I didn't hear about much drama before, but got the impression there was some. I'm sure it didn't all involve hbg.

    Nothing's perfect, but things have got a lot uglier. And I'm not even talking about blawar's face.

    Apparently block compression is now working in Tinfoil/DZ? Is HBG going this direction now, that it is installing games as compressed? Anyone know how this affects in-game performance?

    Of course and why would it, it gets "unzipped" during installation

    I thought the whole point of block compression was that it actually reduced install size, as opposed to solid compression which does not.

    There is no reduced install size.

    Just because you are incapable of maintaining a working installation does not mean that hbg in general is not working anymore.

    It seems to be that HBG is now blocked in the UK. Have 2 friends on latest release confirm that they have no "New Games" section and someone on the HBG Discord mentioned this. I didn't want to believe it!

    Wonder if there will be a work around somehow other than a VPN as that would be complicated for most, my router doesn't directly support VPN as far as I know.

    Interesting. It's probably just a dns block tho. Wouldn't using a custom DNS in Switch settings already solve that issue?

    What happens if you open the URLs in locations.conf in your desktop browser?

    If it's just a DNS block this would work. If it's blocked by country of origin you would have to set up a VPN through your router

    Router VPN wouldn't be doable for most in my area without buying a new router. We are dominated by one local ISP and all use the standard equipment provided...

    Shame I can't test anything right now!

    Why’s it matter when we have something better called JackinTheShop? Better than HBG, no need for altered atmosphere set up

    Last I checked Jack was slow to get in new games let alone adopt NSZ. Though I support lower drama alternatives.

    You dont need to alter your CFW with HBG either. The DRM was removed a few weeks ago.
