    I will make this tutorial better and cleaner, but I have been seeing a lot of people ask this question, and decided to make this quick tutorial in the meantime.

    Place both files into a folder, then just simply drag and drop the nsp onto the dividensp.bat. make sure that the nsp itself is not in the same folder, you can drag it from anywhere. Then, just simply copy and paste the folder it made into tinfoil/nsp. Last thing, make sure that the archive tag is on for the .nsp folder. If it's not, tinfoil won't recognize/install correctly.

    This the last thing we needed for "no more exfat"...

    Great, now we can enjoy emulation without worry about SD corruption on exfat! I'm going to reformat my SD card to FAT32 asap.

    Tinfoil/DZ mostly killed off any reason to use ex-fat, but this has nailed the coffin. Great work

    Yeah, so this doesn't work unless there's a special version of TinFoil I'm not using.

    Worked fine for me, just tried Xenoblade with it, make sure "this is ready for archiving" is ticked in windows for the .nsp folder

    (Latest Nightly of TF here btw)

    You just threw the folder into tinfoil's NSP folder, with the archive bit set, and it appeared on the list for you to select when you choose to install NSP in the menu?

    Thanks,
    I'm not running Windows, so I'm looking at the powershell script... so each part file is (4GiB - 64KiB), the directory name is the same as the original filename, still ending in .nsp, and the part files' names are just single digit numbers starting from 0? No extension? (edit: I've been told the part filenames are double digit numbers)
    Cheers.

    Great work on this. :grog:

    I was worried I'd have to go exFat to play some of my newer games.

    Looks like I won't have to give up retroarch after all.

    If anyone tries to run this powershell script on mac/*nix (using this), first replace the two backslashes in the .ps1 file with forward slashes.

    Just cos I'm not seeing this posted anywhere here, the splitter was removed from temp due to being SDK files!

    For those of us who are too late, is there an ETA on a legal alternative?
