    The corruption message in the verification was just a bug, i didn't had time to make the new build. I'll probably have in the afternoon.
    Yesterday i made the xci patched to keygeneration9 (RSV) and it worked directly without generating it 2 times.
    Also got reports that for some reason ghost blade hd update only works in sx os if patched for keygeneration 0-8 but not 9, couldn't test yet but is true that i couldn't make it work patched to keygeneration9 the other day. It did if installed on atmosphere though.

    Do you want a third option? it's doable i just didn't since normally is something people will need to always say yes but i can add a question you could dissable i guess. In theory if your card is on fat32 sx installer is capable to paste the xci file as archived folder if your card is formatted to fat32 though, it may be more useful since i didn't add yet support to read splitted files directly.

    Would be cool, yes. I use a FAT32 MicroSD and an exFat USB HDD for bigger XCIs only.
    But I don't like using the USB HDD anyway because it's much too slow despite USB3, much slower than the internal memories, NAND and MicroSD.

    HDD is fast if you use Overclock actually. The load times improve a lot with sys-clk.
    I actually created a rommenu 2.9.2 nsp to overclock it and it made it faster too.

    A 2TB Seagate. Connected to the PC it's perfect fast.
    I tried both USB3 ports inside the dock, I know that outside is only USB2.

    I don't know if i can share the rommenu nsp but set up sys-clk editor + sys-clk, then rommenu as nsp with max cpu, minimun gpu like boost mode. Then for slow games use OC profiles it will load them faster and play better, you may need to use an open dock and change at least the thermal paste but is worth it.
    To make the nsp use the boot.dat unpacking script, rename rommenu.bin to nro and use nro2nsp to make the nsp.

    Thanks, but I don't want to make it too complicated.
    Actually I just wait that the 1TB MicroSDs become payable.

    Isn't there a general way that help speed up the harddrive ? Perhaps I do something wrong ?
    The ports are blue but they don't seem to use real USB3 speed.

    Well one of the things that gets a better speed is if it uses a external source, that affects the speed when loading icons in rommenu but not the loading times of the games. In my case to inmprove loading times i need OC, it would be nice if there was a way to make a force boost mode just for loading screens.

    Just loading the icons faster would be a good start :D

    That's what the rommenu nsp + the oc config i told you about does. Is similar to the OC SX Installer uses, basically max cpu+minimun gpu is the config for boost mode, if you add that setting to rommenu with sys-clk it will just use OverClock on rommenu so no real disadvantage there since you are in normal values (boost mode).
    But yeah a fully powered hdd also helps, there's people that uses a Y cable to power it using 2 ports. I particularly use a mybook powered externally and i use a hub that can change the connection between switch and the pc pressing one button since i have the switch connected to the same screen as my pc.

    Oh, I'll keep my fingers yway from rommenu, but thanks.
    A Y cable could help ? I thought a HDD gets enough power and works (normal) or it doesn't. But it's worth a try.

    @JRoad I have a hard drive full of my original backup files and is only there as a backup. the best way to go about compressing them and what settings should I use?

    What about XCZ ? Saving space but losing speed because decompression ?
    Anyway does SX OS support XCZ files ?

    Could it be that the splitting function doesn't work correct ?
    I splitted 2 games into parts. Trying to mount them leads to an error with SXOS 2.9.2.
    I thought it's because the new Autoloader. But I disabled it and the error still comes.
    I never used splitted XCIs before. Can I make something wrong with it ?

    Oh, there must be something wrong.
    If I try to install a splitted XCI I get always an "Install failed" at the very end.
    All files are copied first, followed by the ">> Done!", but then comes "Install failed!"

    what games are we talking about here? and have you verify your keys in the config menu too? u can also check for errors by option 4>option 8 but it only works for non-split files so maybe check original files

    All games. The rest is useless to ask for, I already know, use and attend NSCB for a long time. I only never used the config, that's all.

    I know this looks repetitive but try this but if u want to make a split version make the non-split version and repack that one

    set your auto mode back to default btw

    Who can help ?
    Never worked with splitted XCIs before, so I have no old files that worked to test.
    I don't know if SX OS is not working correct or the generated XC* files made by NSCB are broken.
    Fact is that mounting a xc0 lead to an error.
    Same with trying to installing the splitted files with SX OS, I get always "Install failed" at the very very end.
    I read something about splitted files in a folder called name.xci to run with the folder need to have an archive bit.
    Are there different ways to use splitted files ? Perhaps SX OS only uses this extra folder methode, I don't know.
    Of course the source XCIs work perfect unsplitted in any way.
    So who has experiance with SX OS 2.9.2 + FW 9.0.1 + FAT32 + splitted XCIs and can help ?
    Who can confirm that splitting XCI works correct with the currect NSCB 0.96b x64 ?

    If they verify after joining them back they should work. At least they do before previous sx releases. The only thing that could break them that i now is them enforcing the same size archive folder uses for split files that is a little smaller and never was used before.
    Either way you can copy them to the sd using sx installer with sx server trough usb which splits them when you copy them. I didn't test it but they say it work.
    I will test my split size and make a normal splitter with a size option. The current one doesn't work in a normal way since outputs the files while converting\modifying them so it reads them decrypted but writes encrypted, also uses several inputs files in multimode so there are things that can be trickier than what a normal splitter do.
    I think the trimmer\supertrimmer should work like a normal splitter if fat32 is selected if i remember right. Anyhow, really busy this weekend as you probably guessed since i didn't build yet the small fix i made on thursday XD
    This weekend ended like a small vacation in which i ended not touching the computer for 4 days. Couldn't even test the new autoloader.
