Hello everyone,

I've got a Mac and a Switch and I'm wondering what would be the best choice to transfer files over USB (it's a pain to take out the SD card each time)
I've got a SX pro on my Switch / emunand.

Thanks

Use nxmtp homebrew. This will detect the switch as mtp device and you could transfer files up to 4gb using Android file transfer. Or use Goldleaf and ns-usbloader

nx-mtp works well for me. I haven't tried the newer mtp homebrew yet but that's another option. Google's official Android File Transfer app works fine on the Mac end. If you have trouble getting mtp working on your Mac, look for my post in the nx-mtp thread about killing a MacOS process called PTPServer or something.

Honestly I still use ftp for most smallish file transfers as it saves me fucking with cables. NS-USBloader and real tinfoil for USB game installs tho.

besides nx-mtp you can use rajkosto's memloader - a hekate payload to mount your sdcard as normal flash storage. Only downside is that you have to reboot your switch every time.
just google rajkosto memloader, I cannot post links yet.

    it would be bad PR to sue a translation team if your not localllizing the game yourself

    all i can say is this will more than likely make Nintendo more lawsuit happy than ever before. till someone actually stand firm against them and takes it to court. i know if the yuzu devs sat up a gofundme for the legal fees it could have been feasible too take them
    on.
  • PrincessLillie @ PrincessLillie:
    Oh I have no doubt that Yuzu devs had the money, their Patreon was bringing in almost $30,000/month
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    They just paid them 2.4mill of course they could afford a legal battle but why they probably had more dirt and caved the public doesn't know about.
  • PrincessLillie @ PrincessLillie:
    I've heard rumors that Yuzu devs had a private stash of early Switch dumps they shared among themselves, in order to fix bugs in the emulator early
    That could definitely have complicated things
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Imho that letter went out just to get communities to feel sorry for them and it worked out well imagine 30k a month in your pockets over an emulator
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Good on them if they actually paid the devs with it just doesn't really add up
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Geez I'm tired of hearing about it already, lol k3nv2

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:

  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    I want the dog also
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Deals off then, dog stays with me
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    I didn't say which one
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Its crazy the price of some game assets for making games, makes me wanna start making some and selling them myself. I've made my own for games I've made, just never looked at what people were getting for them online.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Make a early beta of the switch 2 as a emulator keep it until Nintendo announces the next version register the domain add ransom ware per every download
