Hi guys,

I haven't really looked into coding any sort of of homebrew on the Switch because I didn't really have a use case that wasn't already covered by tools another dev has written.
I just beat Pokemon Let's Go for the first time, though, and an idea came to mind that I could write a bot for soft resetting for shiny legendaries (especially Mewtwo) since the game doesn't even have a real soft-reset feauture.
Does anyone if libnx has any methods for killing specific process IDs and spawning new processes for specific titles?

Thank you!

-Michael

EDIT: I guess I should have actually read the code first... nsdevTerminateProcess that looks promising.

    I've got a clone, it works fine, but I can't get it to play nice with my SDcard reader.

    like an sd card slot extension thing?

  • MightyJAK @ MightyJAK:
    Yeah, to load from (and save data to) an SD card plugged into the serial port.

  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    You test that extension thing through a regular usb reader on your pc? Could just be a shit one. Bought one for my 3d printer and it just straight up doesn't work

  • MightyJAK @ MightyJAK:
    it can't be plugged into a USB reader (it's made from a regular SD card to USB adapter, but with the USB end modded to a Dreamcast serial plug)

  • MightyJAK @ MightyJAK:
    It was working fine before I installed the GDEMU, but now the Dreamcast doesn't recognize it when I boot up Dreamshell.

    Can't find any threads about this particular issue on GBAtemp or the wider intarwebz. Saw one video on YouTube that seemed relevant, but it was some dude with the same issue, no solutions offered in the comments. :/
