Hello hello beautiful people.

Full disclosure:
I'm completely new to Skyrim, especially when it comes to its modding community so if what I'm stating was already known my apologies. I couldn't find anything made for the switch. I can't call this a tutorial, more of a collection of things someone else has done, but trust me it's really really simple.

While I wish it was possible to have Sky UI mod on the switch as well I found these mods that increase the font size of pretty much anything in the game so I wanted ti share it with you:

To be able to do this you need you need to:
- Have a switch running atmosphere (I'm sure anything else that has a LayeredFs would work too)
- Have the knowledge how to install Mods on the switch, especially in Skyrim, otherwise please watch this gentleman video:
from the minute 5:33. (keep in mind that Atmosphere 10.x changed the folder name from "titles" to "content".

These are the mods I'm using, they're not converted for the switch but they work perfectly.


Large Original Skyrim Font:

EZ2C DIALOGUE MENU - FULLY CONFIGURABLE
-https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/18466?tab=files&file_id=1000000663
In the folder you’ll find some preset option, editing the file is pretty straight forward in case you’d like to.


This will be the result pretty much:

Hope this helps some of you.
More than happy to help you if you guys gets stuck..

If any of you have any suggestions to add, please just let me know.

edit 1: i removed some unnecessary steps.
Edit 2: following the steps in the original post, the books would appear to be empty, I added a mod to fix this issue.

-Just Figured out how to improve the favourite menu and extend the hotkeys from 2 to 8.

you need to install this mods first:
https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/4862/?
The file “FavouritesMenu.cfg needs to be edited to be able to fit the window correctly, just put this value instead of the default ones


[config]

menu_base_x = -10
menu_base_y = -667
menu_cols = 4



then add this one for expand your hotkeys:
https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimnintendoswitch/mods/97?tab=files


The hotkeys work this way:

Dpad L+A = Hotkey1
Dpad L+B = Hotkey2
Dpad L+X = Hotkey3
Dpad L+Y = Hotkey4
Dpad R+A = Hotkey5
Dpad R+B = Hotkey6
Dpad R+X = Hotkey7
Dpad R+Y = Hotkey8

if im remember correctly the ini file is only for the fonts, follow this other guide of mine and let me know if this works

Here you should find my ini file with a complete remapping and I add some extra shortcuts:

Does this work with SXOS? I watched the video but Im not seeing any difference ingame. Also the video only talked about esp/bsa files and thats not the type of files in the font folder.

EDIT: Yo I got it working! But it seems like books dont have any text?
