I have a modded regular Switch and a modded Switch Lite, and was wondering if there were any apps to sync game saves between the two? I know I can use check point and copy the save over manually, but if there were an app that backed up saves and uploaded them to Google Drive with one button click it would be amazing.

the guy above is correct, but you have to login every time to use it (currently). There's rumors up an update in alpha that stays logged in for this purpose

I hope so. It's pretty much the only reason I'm not using it.

Can confirm the latest private build has auto-login (check my roles in the TX rocket chat if you want to confirm I'm actually a beta tester). Last I heard they can't release it yet because the head TX guy is on holliday. They're working on another cool feature but I don't think I'm allowed to talk about it, I don't think that will be available soon though because they need to host a backend server.

That's great news, and you've said enough to get an idea of what they're cooking up. At least the direction that feature will go.

I've asked them if I can post a video of it but haven't had a reply yet. I've been using it for ~1 month now and it's working pretty nicely. Was buggy at first but that has been ironed out. The first time you login it opens a browser and then it saves the login details to do it automatically the next time without opening the browser. As for the other feature they said that might not happen at all yet, they're just experimenting with it so they don't want anyone to talk about it in case someone else makes an alternative before them.

    i may not be a good homebrew dev yet but i personally think gridlauncher was much much better than the shit, bog standard homebrew menu

  • AliceCE @ AliceCE:
    it had way more personality, the standard homebrew menu feels like an 3ds applet, developed quickly and without any quirks

  • AliceCE @ AliceCE:
    too bad luma just so happens to completely break gridlauncher , and the fact that it's not maintained anmore

  • AliceCE @ AliceCE:
    hell, even the wii homebrew menu gives me heavy nostalgia, even if it's barely, if at all customiable, but the 3ds
    homebrew launcher is ass

    either way i should really clear out my microsd, i'm pretty sure the sheer amount of shit i have on it might be fuckin' with my 3ds
