    First things first ...
    i had a drink of some sweet argonian ale, so this might be impossible to read and understand (sorry if so).

    number 2...
    i wont be able to help everyone (I work 50 hrs. a week. not sorry).

    Requirements (
    I can't help you with theese search the forum)

    working layeredFS Setup
    Physical copy of skyrim (Actual Cartridge)
    Extracted romfs Of Skyrim (Search up HacToolGUI)
    Switch Keys (Dont Know Dont Ask. They exist, and thats all i have to say about that)

    Step one dump your skyrim cart using WAINCartDumperNX (search the forum)

    copy the game.xci to your pc from sd card


    use HactoolGUI with your keys to extract the xci file to a folder named skyrim

    use HactoolGUI to extract the largest .nca file from HactoolGUI/skyrim/secure/ (roughly or exactly 15,015,696 KB) to a folder named romfs

    have your switch sd card inserted into your pc and navigate to SD:/atmosphere/titles

    create a folder named "01000A10041EA000" without the quotes. enter said folder.

    create a folder called "romfs" no quotes.

    create another folder named "Data" no quotes. Csae Sensitive! Data With A big D!

    ok now for the actual mod files ...

    http://lmgtfy.com/?q=skyrim+special+edition+cheating+chests

    create an account and download that mod. (under the files tab then manual download)

    or any mod? (some wont work, see note below!)

    I make sure they dont use SKSE because im not sure that we got that, or ever will?

    NOTE : FROM bedbug1226,

    I would make sure to let people know that only meshes,some scripts and esm/esp mods work unless you convert the textures and sounds required.

    Moving onwards.


    extract Cheating Chests - (riverwood or whiterun).esp to SD:/atmosphere/titles/01000A10041EA000/romfs/Data/Cheating Chests - (riverwood or whiterun).esp

    I rename it to cheat.esp for simplicity.

    copy FROM THE EXTRACTED ROMFS FOLDER, TO THE SD ROMFS FOLDER Skyrim.ini

    so all in all on your sd card you should have ...

    SD:atmosphere/titles/01000A10041EA000/romfs/Data/cheat.esp
    SD:atmosphere/titles/01000A10041EA000/romfs/Skyrim.ini

    Next Step edit Skyrim.ini with notepad or whatever.
    under the line sTestFile4=Hyrule.esm (Line Number 14?) add
    sTestFile5=cheat.esp

    save,
    exit,
    renisert sd to switch,
    load up hekate with layered fs or however you prefer,
    boot skyrim,
    run to whiterun under the bridge and see a chest ?
    if not maybe im dumb or maybe youre dumb (not sure until tomorrow)

    Anywho i've spent enough time on this for the moment. there are some giants waiting to be killed outside of whiterun.

    good luck!

    Im just gonna throw this here too because its fun.

    Good tutorial. May I add, IIRC the "Data" folder is case sensitive, right?

    Anyway, can you also cover combining scripts?

    Sorry for the confusion, what I meant was plugins.

    Any advice or tools you could point us to for mods that require conversions?

    remember to add any bsas to the sResourceArchive line as well.

    Also, someone screw with the "haptic lockpick sweet spot differential" (or whatever it's called) setting and tell me what it does, I'm curious to see if you can make the sweet spot vibrate more for lockpicking, and that looks like a related setting.

    Things that use textures will "work" but the textures wont load properly. But, for example in Ordinator the textures BSA doesn't seem to matter as long as it's loaded, I haven't noticed any corrupt textures yet.

    i believe it does because i enabled that and it vibrates when lockpicking . not sure if it always has or not? i have also enabled bReflectLODObjects under [water] and it seems to work im not sure why they disabled that.

    i also tried changing resolution from 1600x900 to 1920x1080 caused it to crash

    Does anybody know if this might work with the Unofficial Skyrim Special Edition Patch (aka USSEP)?
