...and get them to work on Atmosphere? From what I remember back from a year ago, it involved getting things to a .NSP file format, but then there's other stuff with sigpatches, titleID, and then I remember something about, if you rip your own game card, and then try to go on Nintendo's servers with a copy of said game card, then you risk getting said card banned.

I know, this is incoherent, but after seeing the following tool and seeing how it uses Parsec, I thought it might be cool to put my copy of Smash Ultimate onto my hacked Switch and open up my Switch to potentially being able to play games online with better Internet service than what Nintendo's got on offer.

You just dump it with any dumping tool, such as GCDumptool, then install it with any title installer, such as Awoo Installer, while you have the appropriate patches that match your bootloader.

Your cartridge won't be banned (this is idiotic retoric). But installing XCI can get you banned as this requires all sigpatches (if something requires loader patches, then it shouldn't be installed at all as this is sign that this stuff wasn't designed to be installed).
