    Wow boy, going the extra mile for those characters:rofl2: I have only one account and I thought that it was... like connected, but I could be wrong.
    Anyway, thanks for the detailed intruction, it may be the only way to do it if no one will make a cheat file for the game.

    I really don't want to connect my switch to the internet, and really would like these 3 characters to get the complete setup...
    So man, could you dump your save with checkpoint using .nro ? That would be really really nice.

    I wonder if this can be fixed with the same setup as animal crossing. A switch with the characters unlocked should be able to dump the bcat file and that should be able to be restored on banned (or switches not online) and the characters should theoretically be unlocked.

    It didn't work on my side, and I don't know why.
    If someone has any idea, please let me know...

    My setup: Sysnand 9.2.0, SXOS 2.9.4. No emunand. And my switch was never online.

    I did the following (I will be probably banned, but I don't care...):
    1. I set the clock to internet one, and connected wifi.
    2. I linked a nnid to my profile.
    3. I installed the game and the latest update 3.1.0 with nsp.
    4. I started the game, and as I didn't have save, the first min of adventure mode were necessary to continue.
    5. When I was on the map in adventure map, I came back to main screen.

    But whatever the mode is, the 3 last characters are not unlocked... And my switch was always online during all setup.

    If someone has a save or BCAT file like Animal Crossing to unlock them, please let us know.

    That's the problem we all have bro. Still I have a new idea. Woulld it be possible to transfer the save to Yuzu (the Switch emulator) and to activate the characters there? I heard it has a BCAT activation system. If that would be possible, we could transfer the save to the PC and back, and have the characters activated that way.

    So technically all we need is a switch connected to the internet that already has the characters unlocked and then you can go to jksv and should be able to back up the bcat file. It should work just like the animal crossing unlock. Or that is the theory. The anyone else should be able to restore it.

    EDIT: I have someone that can try it, but the quarantine is somewhat prohibitive and I need to give him my official card.

    Good luck, I have no idea if this might be a risk for a ban though. You should be fair and inform yourself and/or him about that.

    Appreciate the sentiment for sure, but this guy is the same one that first started circulating the animal crossing stuff and they also dump mario maker levels and other stuff. They know far more than me and know what they are doing. Done properly and with multiple nands, etc... it is fairly safe to do this stuff. All of the scene groups use these methods to get the game tickets as well.

    It seems update 3.2.0 is out since yesterday.
    I don't have it for the moment, but maybe the 3 last characters are unlocked with it ?

    I'm curious as well. They did unlock them with previous updates.

    For the last three characters, Mario Tennis Aces seems to be referring to a system time inside the Switch that users can't touch.
    By setting the internal time in switchtime.nro, the three characters can be used.
    However, even when comparing the save data where the character appeared, there were so many changes that I couldn't pinpoint the costumes with my skill.
    :(:(:(

    I dumped a save with skins on it. But it seems that the game has a online check. The skins become disabled on offline cfw. I don’t know. Maybe I can find the variable that tells the game it’s offline or online, but I don’t know if I’ll ever have the free time

    Just to close this out about the three characters... the newest update released does, in fact, unlock them all.

    You need to sync’s your time to real time. If you use incognito, just go and sync time in settings. If you use something like a dns you’ll need a seperate homebrew to “trick” your switch into thinking you’re Using the real time.

    Have you tried "switch-time.nro", created by 3096?
    Even if you are offline, you can change the network system clock of the switch via NTP to the same state as if you had changed the network system clock of the switch.
    (Sorry I can't make a link because I'm a Newbie:()
