    Good day everyone,

    I was wondering as we've seen many XCI 2 NSP tools, outs the a reason why the reverse is not a thing?

    I haven't seen a single software that actually does NSP 2 XCI, anything preventing this from happening from a technical standpoint or is it just a lack of interest from the dev?

    I'm fully aware of the pros and cons of each format but even with a format being more popular over another the devs don't usually skip development for that reason, anything is a challenge in its own for them.

    Just wondering, share your thoughts,

    Thank you,

    NSP 2 XCI programs are out there. It's just that XCI files only work on paid SX OS devices at the moment. So its just not as big of a crowd.

    Thank you,

    Looks like a long process, everything seems so simple with NSP files everything seems automated but there seems to be a new complexity layer when it comes to XCI's.
