Hi, yeah you understand the meaning of the question but I will take on exemple the AM2R port since it's not piracy. I'm not asking where I can get it or anything related to that but for exemple this game is not official, so the signature is not official and it will be detected like this with any type of installers

How can I check if a nsz/nsp/xci file is safe when the only protection on installers against bad stuff is the validity of the signature?

NSC Builder, and emunand should do the job. It supports nsz and nsp.
Also, what do you mean by "physical brickers"?

I use NX Game Info. It's great tool and tell you if it is convert, original, and safe.

You need it. Put Prod.keys file and nx game info in same folder and run nxgame info again.

When you open it. Do you see bottom is scroll bar that move back to forth ? Slide it to forward and you will see "safe" in there.

just use NSCBuilder. It will tell you if it's safe or not. If you are extremely paranoid as you seem to be... if it say something is modified. Don't use it...

No. The "pass" and "safe" next to each others .. Here:

Obviously mine is macOS version. I thought it should be the same. Sorry.

it's ok

copy over your titles.key to the folder and rename it to keys.txt.
Then just follow the guide

What guide ?

Also it's glitching when I press 1

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------

It' a windows program that lets you check a lot of games aspects like picture and title and else. problematic files have problem in those areas. and it does support all files.

I have try xci explorer, do you know what I should check to see if the game is safe ?
