I just got a Switch with the firmware 2.3, updated with Pokken to 3.0, now what ?

Do I have to use a DNS to use PegaSwitch so the Switch don't update on itself ?

I know we can't do anything useful with PegaSwitch, as a end user, but I'd like to keep it on this firmware and keep it as it is until we got stuff like save backup ect...

It's probably going to be years before there are any hacks, or homebrew available for the switch. So if you want to keep it on 3.0, don't plan on buying many games for at least the next several years. All new, and several current games will require OFW 3.1 to play.

Just keep it in the box! No really! You just spend 300 bucks on a nice gamingconsole so it is a shame when you can't play pirated games on it. /s

Keep internet disconnected. That and buying the newest games is the only way it can be ruined.

I already a Switch since D-1, I bought a second one just for homebrew, so I already have access to any game I want to play.

Honestly, I don't really care about piracy, I just want something we can only do with homebrew, so game mods, preserve savegame ect...

That make no sense to buy a second Switch if we want piracy, I'd rather buy games instead of spending a lot on a new console ;)


Anyway, any DNS I can use ?
If no one know then I'll try to search by myself.

Switch doesn't auto update, it will prompt you to update when launching games/apps if an update has been downloaded, but it's easy to ignore.

what if the update has been pre-downloaded(forgot to turn auto update off).
Do we have to do a factory reset to see current version again?

    @Psionic Roshambo, The Wii U gamepads are tied to the console's region, so its impossible to find a cheap gamepad that supports your model.

    Unless you modify your system, of course, and remove the region check.

    @Xdqwerty can we discuss chrono trigger
  • S @ salazarcosplay:
    @Xdqwerty I like how the game had the middle ages 1000AD, the dark ages 600AD.It was great seeing the post robot apocalypse 2300 like Terminator and enter the matrix. some of mad max and fallout. 2300ad though it could had used more elements instead of just a generic ai uprising. It was a great idea for their judgement day to be 1999 Y2K.

    -great additions if they would have made an expansion or dlc in my opinion would be finding out humans trapped in a matrix -

    a follower having a cyborg character living tissue over metal endoskelleton like terminator, and the synths from fallout
  • S @ salazarcosplay:
    4After Zeal fell it would have been good to see more ancient eras. Perhaps Sumeria based in one area, then Egypt based in another area, Greek based in another area, then roman based in another area before the middle ages.---------

    ----between 1000ad and 1999 is a big gap they should have had the age of revolution like the american and French Revolution

    then the cowboyy era in one area of map and the Industrial revolution/age of enlightmentthen a ww1 and ww2 and a cold war era
  • S @ salazarcosplay:
    they could have added 75,000 bc like assassins creed. zeal was already establish in 12, 000 bc , soething before the kindom rose
