    If you found the thread with the tool, why bother making a completely separate thread? At least if you posted there, OP might be able to help get you set up.

    hello i have success in making the fusion of the game.nsp plus update.nsp..and the result its a filename like this game+u.xci.... but i don't feel that the updated its integrated because switch asked me to update, so...does this app only allows to convert the game to xci, but not the update with it? or how can i do it properly?

    Since the update is integrated into the .XCI file and .XCI files are meant to be mounted, not installed, the update is only applied when the .XCI file is mounted. Therefore the update will never be installed into the console's internal memory unless you install it as a .NSP file. Also keep in mind that there is a difference between asking for a software update and a system update. If its asking for a software update, you do not have the latest update bundled with your .XCI file. If its asking for a system update, update your system.

    thanks for the info. i think is better to mount game.xci and install updates via nsp...because i don't feel it worked for me in the way i wanted...it didnt asked me for system update...but game update...but it was already included in my xci made by 2 nsps

    In isntallations it gets installed if you use the rommenu (the gallery installer from TX). It doesn't get installed with tinfoil since blawar felt that since legit xcis have a lot of the times older updates he should blacklist the updates inside them from being installed, which is in some way understandable.

    About the update not being applied when the xci is unmounted, some retain the update version in the placeholder while some don't retain them. Still that check is done at the game's launch so the update would be mounted so either is a software update, he's right and an issue happened, he's using an old update or if he added dlcs he's using a lower dlc version than what he should be using.
    If the xci is mounting it should be fine, though it would be better to verify it with the functions NSCB have for that matter (verify, game info, ...). Normally when i see an user with that issue it's related to him using older update or dlc versions.
    I also think it would make more sense to use the official post.
