    I already asked this question in the "NSP to XCI" thread, but think it warrants its own one. Simply put is there currently any way to do this? For instance if I have the base game + update + DLCs in NSP and would like to merge them all into a single NSP file with the intention of then converting this to XCI.

    I know you can merge the romfs of a base game and an update when you extract the files with hactool, and you could use the updated exefs when necessary, but DLCs have their own titleid, so if the game is hard-coded to look for that, I guess you wouldn't be able to fully merge the DLC without patching the game code. A lot of the time the actual content for the DLC is included in the relevant game update, and the DLC title is just a tiny unlocker for it, so in those cases maybe you could live with installing the DLC nsp.
