I am in the process of installing CFW on my Switch (Atmosphere). I have a 64gb micro sd card formatted in fat32. I have some backup games in xci format, some exceed the 4gb limitation on fat32. Do the xci files need to be split?

Can anyone point me in the right direction for some sort of guide how to get them running?

Yes, you can split them. Why you want to install .xci instead of .nsp? With Goldtree you can install over usb and don't need to split them.

I am pretty new to this so please forgive the silly questions. The backups I have a in .xci format, can I convert these or would it be easier to just get .nsp files?

Yes, you can convert them but you don't need to. Try to install them. If one .xci doesn't work, get the .nsp version instead.

For anyone trying to figure out how to install games on their Switch. You need to use the prod.keys file you dumped when you backed up your Switch (the keys are needed as they need to be writen to xci, nsp files. You also need to download the signature files (available on this forum) and put them in the folder Atmosphere folder on your SD.

Just want to point people in the right direction.

I will add to this as soon as I get chance.

    lately I downloaded super mario galaxy for wii, but in the first phase, right in the first cutscene of the game, the game freezes in that part, with the image appearing but completely frozen. I already had this problem with pikmin 2 but in the end I couldn't fix the problem. Has anyone had this problem, and if so, did you find a solution?
