    Whether lurking on an older firmware, banned from online activities, or unwilling to fork out for Nintendo's Switch Online, a lot of us find ourselves stuck in the void of single-player gaming. The release of switch-lan-play opened doors previously closed, allowing us to play a select list of games online regardless of bans and subscriptions. Taking another step forwards, we have ldn_mitm: a custom kip to break the final chains, to allow almost every game supporting local wireless to be enjoyed online.

    Requirements:
    1. Atmosphère 0.8.0+ or ReiNX
    2. switch-lan-play (setup guide)
    3. ldn_mitm
    How to Use (Atmosphere):
    1. Make a folder in atmosphere named kips, /atmosphere/kips/
    2. Put the kip file in that folder and boot with fusee primary.bin
    3. Once booted go ingame and select the Wireless Play Option (If you see an L in your wifi bars that means that the kip did not load and that you need to reboot)
    4. (Optional) Use official Switch-lan-play discord to matchmake and find other players,
    How to Use (ReiNX):
    1. Put the kip in /sysmodules/ folder.
    2. Boot reinx and enable it via ReiNX toolbox (Might gonna need to disable fsmitm since its know to cause issues)
    3. Reboot ReiNX
    4. Once booted go ingame and select the Wireless Play Option (If you see an L in your wifi bars that means that the kip did not load and that you need to reboot)
    5. (Optional) Use official Switch-lan-play discord to matchmake and find other players,
    You can find a list of currently tested games here. Please note this will not work on SXOS, as it does not support custom kip loading.(yet)

    It is recommended to only use ldn_mitm and lan-play.exe from their official releases, third-party apps and homebrew are not supported.

    Wow. If the community supporting and using this is big, it could be a reason to go to CFW. Anyways, this is great and IMO, the only feature needed in CFW. I wouldn't really care about not being able to run XCI's, so this is not a must feature for me, at least.

    Great job!

    I am kind of like you, at the moment. It looks incredibly good. Anyways, is there a server list for this or something? There was another thing like this (which I don't remember the name) that had server list, and that was great too.

    I'm interested! Now time to look into "upgrading" to reiNX from sx os. Is it as simple as just running the rei payload or do i have to get rid of SX OS files?

    First of, cool!

    Second followup: does this work with 90DNS active? If so, that'd be really cool.

    Just use Atmosphere, ReiNX is just a bootloader for Atmospheres sysmodules. You might as well go for the SDFiles/Kosmos, it accomplishes the same effect.

    Wondering how this would work for pirated games and systems that arent banned yet.

    Will this allow them to play pirated copies without directly connecting to Nintendo servers and risking a ban?

    So I'm confused. Can someone explain to an idiot why this is better than switch-lan-play? Is it just because it's all hosted locally from the switch?

    This is still switch-lan-play. Previously, switch-lan-play only worked with games that had a LAN mode. The same dev who made switch-lan-play also made this kip which now allows you to use switch-lan-play to play games online even without a LAN mode.

    Oh shoot. That's a big deal isn't it. So... that means we can play any online game or am I missing something. This seems too good to be true.

    SX OS still has no 6.2.0 support, and now no Smash lan-play support. That thirty dollars spent is looking worse and worse every passing release...

    This really was the last step. Now it really doesn't matter to be banned.
    Nintendo Cloud Saves (not for all games by the way)? -> We have checkpoint.
    Nintendo Online NES? -> We have RetroArch.
    Nintendo Online Gaming? We have ldn_mitm.
