My Switch is currently on firmware 6.0. Is there a way to get the NES Game explorer from Switch Online without buying the service and with no connection?

Well, yes. You can. All you need to do is find the .nsp file online and install it. It might need a user linked to a nintendo account, but the nintendo account does not need to have a Nintendo online subscription or even connect to the internet, aside from the initial linking process, I assume.

But really, you're probably better of just getting retroarch, the interface of the NES online is really nothing special and you're missing out on a ton of features by not choosing retroarch.

NES online is as retarded as the guy who designed it and mapped the nes A and B buttons after the switch A and B buttons rather then the Y and X ones.

X and B are mapped identically, though. So you can play like thatg as well.

No. At least you can't get the "real" service without subbing.

Well I like the NES Online UI and would love to use it.
The UI is nice. Being able to regroup the games is a good feature. Wish we could do that on the Home menu of the Switch UI without hacks.

Button remapping is something I would like to see as well.

Yes, find the nsp, find the layeredfs pack for extra games and UI mods (there's a bundle on dumbra). You can't play 2-player online, but I haven't missed it.

I already have one Switch banned. My other Switch will stay legit for the kids. Wish we didn't need mods for remapping buttons. Maybe in a future update, maybe....

there is a nsp out there for the NES Online app, which lets you play all the games that come with it and you can add your own

in truth the nes online is pretty crap, but if you want that retro vibe buy nes or snes mini and mod that. in all honesty i only got the online for splatoon.

well, it was a logical choic it's just unfortunate that they didn't include the option to rebind it
