    we don't need it do decrypt/convert the game because while cia-convert-process, the Update-Partition will be removed.

    But what does this file if it's there there is a reason why no ? so why every time I convert something I feel like the rom is not complete anymore
    removing it substract something to the rom or does this file is suposed to do anything?

    It is because ncchinfo_gen creates Xorpads for everything even if we don't need it.
