    Hi! I run the Amiibo Dojo and our training community has been hard at work finding out information about each character. We use the editor a lot and are grateful for how easy it allows us to apply Spirits. However I noticed that the latest version has plagiarized exact paragraphs from our training guides for certain characters without giving credit. I'd really appreciate it if you could either remove these or give credit in the next version. Thanks!

    In order to get the Decrypt and Reencrypt options to pop up in the file menu you need to obtain the key_retail.bin file from somewhere, you can't ask for it on gbatemp though because of legal reasons.

    I have the key and can easily decrypt the .bin files however, when i need to re-encrypt so that i can save it to a tag it does not work or does not save it

    Are you remembering to save first and then reencrypt?

    Anyone know why this is happening and how to get the switch to recognize it as an amiibo

    Now that I'm not busy with real life and being sick. As far as I know this thread and the research thread here on gbatemp are the only places actually doing research on the Ultimate Amiibo file format but I could be wrong.
    As far as Ultimate not recognizing edited amiibos, what is the file size of one of your unedited amiibo.bin files?

    Ok its not that then. Can you do a basic test of editing a newly created Ultimate amiibo to level 50 for me to see if that works?

    Maybe it's being saved wrong after being edited.
    Can you give me steps on how to save it correctly

    I'm beginning to wonder if its something with your keys or Python.
    1. File - Decrypt Amiibo which creates a decrypted amiibo file called a .bind file from an amiibo .bin you select.
    2. Edit the amiibo however you want.
    3.When finished hit File - Save.
    4. File - Encrypt Amiibo which reencrypts the saved .bind file back into an amiibo .bin file.

    I think I'm having a problem in step 4 because when I try to re-encrypt it only gives me the option to select .bin files which are already encrypted

    Just trying typing anything.bin into the save box. It shows all current bin files, if the file name is not found it will create the new file.

    I think there's a bug in the editor when it comes to encryption because it worked perfectly decrypting and editing but then i had to use amiitool to re-encrypt which ended up working perfectly
