Hi,
I have split my 6,5Gb nsp thanks to SplitNSP-Swift-GUI. It gives me 2 files (00 and 01, no extension) inside a folder.
I copied this directory at the root of my fat32 SD card as I do for regular nsps (except that they are smaller)
I launch sxos, but the nsp is not listed on the installable nsp screan.
I saw that maybe it was because of an "archive" flag on the directory that I could set, but I'm on MacOs and it seems to be a Windows stuff.
I tried to install it via NSPinstaller homebrew, but it's another failure.

How could I process please ?

thanks,
ben

Yes. This because of absent archive flag. This is not mac or windows stuff, it is a filesystem stuff. So, either use windows or look for mac tool that can manage fat flags.

Thanks for your reply.

I found a page on applestackexchange.
so I tried this command :
sudo chflags arch my_folder
but it didn't seemed to work (I even tried "sudo chflags noarch my_folder" cause the doc say that it's inintuitive ;))

if i remember correctly the switch homebrew called "nx-shell" allows you to set the archive bit. it's a file browser for the switch. so you just load it up on your switch and click on the folder where you put your split nsp and select "set archive bit" or something like that.

I had the same issues because I am on macOS. I use the tool called CleanEject. Very simple and less hassle and it can read mine just fine. Been used it for over a year.. All time and I am happy with it. You have to do it every time you want to put game on your SD Card through Mac.. Just use it every time and you will be fine. :)

IT WORKS !
Thank you and thank Linuxares, I installed nx-shell and set the achive bit properly.
I precise that I renamed the folder to the complete rom name ("blablabla[0431573145]) and add ".nsp" (even if it was a folder)

That's the thing. It looks like a folder until the bit is set ;)
