    There are like 50 different zip files inside a folder how do I go about actually getting the game? Through DevMenu?

    You just need to extract the first zipped file and the rest will extract with it creating a usable xci file

    I tried this. It extracts out and gives me a folder with a ton of zip files int it not an xci file.

    Rinse and repeat.
    I.e. Extract the zip files.
    It's just multivolume compression, it is typical and the way it has been done since circa the advent of Jesus Christ.

    Even if you used a computer before or not, it is quite simple.
    You just need to decompress the first ZIP/RAR file that you got in that folder.
    It will automatically continue decompressing the rest of the volumes.

    Just go to the first file in that folder, right-click, and select EXTRACT.

    I found out what's wrong. I must've gotten a corrupted/shitty download because it is missing parts which would explain why it didn't all come out as one file.

    If you get files with the .rar and r.00, r01... rnn extensions, you only have to extract one of them, the others will be extracted automatically. Sometimes you get multiple .zip files inside those .rar archive, that are named like bbb-a.zip, bbb-b.zip, bbb-c.zip and so on. In that case you can mark them all, right click and choose WinRAR -> Extract here.

    So funny hahaha. Look I asked a question! I tried extracting it normally but the download was corrupt. I'm not an idiot. I could've done this all myself had the download been functional and complete.

    Hmmm..
    Anyway, will there be a follow up on how to use the xci once you have it?
    To preempt, you don't use Devmenu, just stick the xci on the root of your SD then go to album under SX OS and select it from there, then go back to home screen to play the game that is now mounted.

    You did not mention that he has to use a webcam, connected to his switch to scan the print outs! ;)

    winrar fails with most bbb dumps, use 7zip instead, it works ok.

    really dont know what the fuck is happening with people here, too much superiority.
