    Does it cleans the ticket and cert before converting to XCI?

    Yes, It removes everything but the necessary NCA files that are needed for the XCI.

    Yeah, I made this for converting unmodded NSPs. I can add the feature to run with ticketless NSPs its just going to take a bit.

    What are you supposed to fill into keys.txt to make this process work?

    I install update NSPs. They have real tickets and certs.

    "place keys txt here" means "place keys.txt here" in the folder. You can get keys.txt using kezplez https://gbatemp.net/threads/kezplez-nx-v1-0-get-all-your-keys-straight-from-your-switch.510846/ or find them on the web.

    Posting keys or links to keys is NOT allowed here.

    Google Nintendo switch key list.

    What should be the last key? meaning I have a pretty large key list and I don't think all of them are needed as it even includes dev units. Is it ok if it has more than what's needed?

    If you open "PLACE_KEYS.txt_HERE" with a text editor (i.e notepad++) it will show you the keys needed.

    @Conex Well I tried to fix the batch to work but the NUT program requires the tik file and will not run.

    Let's be honest, you're banning yourself by doing that.

    See that argument doesn't work for me. A ban is something that is beyond your control while 90DNS+Airplane mode isn't. I can go online anytime i damn well please and if i was banned i wouldn't be able to. So no, it's not a self ban, it's a precaution AGAINST a ban

    I finally managed to get this working, for people having trouble here are the steps I followed (assuming you have keys.txt filled out correctly)

    1) Download and install the latest version of Python, 3.7.0
    2) Add the following to Path environmental variables (Computer -> System Properties) to include ;C:\Users\YOU\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python37-32
    3) Every time I tried to convert to XCI i would receive "ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'colorama'" and would generate an empty XCI file
    • Open command prompt and enter pip install colorama
    • Drag nsp file to NSP_2_XCI.bat and it should work this time
    Successfully converted a few eshop games and so far so good. Good work Bigjokker & JRoad

    is this normal?
    I tried Converting an NSP using NUT_BT.bat (because some reason it wont run the game saying like the owner account is unlinked, so i need to remove the license stuff)

    output:
    root.hfs0 <- same size with the given nsp
    [game].xci <- [Smaller] varies Size

    what does this mean?

    Edit-----------------

    NVM wrong place and found out the reason.

    Is there a way to merge base game and update together prior to converting to .xci?

    I would like to know this as well. Merge base game + updates + DLC to a single NSP and then convert to XCI using NSP_2_XCI.bat
