    Having it fade off screen after a few seconds would make sense, it only reminds you of what the start, select, and overlay buttons are. Pretty obvious except ZR+ZL for overlay.

    Oh well, since it works for now there's Probably no need to reinstall "retail" 6.0.0 if one is on the leaked version from a few weeks ago

    So lets say i Buy Pokemon Lets Go Pikachu, download it on my switch, log my Account into another switch and download Pokemon lets Go There,

    Would we be able to play both Games on Our Switches AT the same time? (Of course with different NNIDs)

    to be fair, i think the service isn't that bad, but we never needed these features, and the NES controllers cost $60!

    In other words you're Luigi from that picture, but Mario just don't give a fuuuck about your complaints.

    The NES app was missing one of my favorite games. Felt I needed to rectify that:

    I love LayeredFS. (Hint, it's Castlevania)

    Oof, you're really tempting me to hack my Switch just to get all my roms into that slick loader UI.

    Noice, They want various switches per houses, they're on the right track. sorta. This reminds me of Steam, although it's a little different, but okay.

    So the emulator is a port from the s/nes minis. The games are in plain nes format and the list of allowed titles are in a plain text file. It takes a few steps but it’s entirely possible to change the list n add any compatible nes (snes too?) to the Nintendo switch.

    The guy behind hackhi has been talking about it all night on Twitter

    That's the method I personally used to go from 4.1 to 5.1.
    And I didn't burn any fuses.
    Also they can't patch the bootloader (which this method prevents from running and thus burning fuses), so it SHOULD work to go up to 6.o.

    Haven't taken that leap personally though, still waiting for more reports of people encountering problems in 6.0 first to get a feel of what I should expect. So I can't say that I've tested it personally for going to 6.0

    I bet when SNES games come out we are going to have o download another title on our homemenu in order to play the SNES games.

    Mine began to drift right. Kinda tempting to update because playing botw with drift sucks the big one.

    So the drifting is a software problem?

    I like that home console feature, hopefully you'll be able to switch it multiple times like you can with the Xbox One.

    me and my friend do it on xbox all the time, we'll both chip in 30 bucks for a game and then we both set the other person's console as the home console. We do it with gold too and then just pay back and forth each couple months

    My brother and I do the same. However this is different from the Xbox. With the switch only one person has access to the games at a time. With Xbox at least both of us can play any title ourselves and each other have bought. The switch will only allow one person. If the other person tries to play a title while your switch is on, it will kick you out! So isn’t game sharing, rather it is account sharing. To put it more simple: let’s say you are playing WoW on your laptop. your sibling goes on your desktop and launches WoW. Login you in thier instead of using thier account. Booom you are kicked off your laptop. That’s basically how the switch primary and non-primary works.
