Can I somehow get the texture pack onto the switch from my Acer Chromebook or does it have to be from a computer? Also, I know that some people on another tutorial said you had to hack your Switch to get it to work... Will I have to hack mine? Thank you so much! :):switch:

you need to hack your switch (https://switch.homebrew.guide/) and you can use a chromebook to do it as long as you have a microsd card port or adapter.

I managed to get hold of a map (.mcworld) from mcpedl, I renamed it to .zip, extracted all the files and put it in a folder with the same name as the .mcworld file but when I restore the backup using checkpoint, the map/world does not show up in Minecraft.

What am I doing wrong?

I tried using a shader pack and the game crashed, is it normal or did I screw up?
I'm pretty sure shader packs don't work on switch

Did you get the world file (The one with level.dat in it) and put it in com.mojang/minecraftWorlds ? It should work if you follow all the steps. Sorry for late reply

Hi, I am having a problem downloading CheckPoint. Is this meant to be downloaded on the switch? Is there any other app I can use? Thankyou for the tutorial

Hi, I’m having a problem downloading the CheckPoint app as it isn’t showing up on the Nintendo switch? Is it meant to be downloaded on the Nintendo switch? Is there any other save manager I can use?

Ban risk on a solo world with card version ?
I haven't been banned yet. I've been playing with custom skins online for a little over a year. I also added some behavior packs, resource packs, and a few worlds.

    first of all, there should be exactly zero reasons to place your sweaty balls on any of the equipment - generally you are supposed to wear clothing at the gym
