    Hello,

    I wanted to know if we can connect our PC to a Nintendo switch. Why? Because I do not have a phone with nfc. So if anyone can tell me if a computer can connect to a nintendo switch and make a free amiibo emulator its would be great. I think it could work because you can connect a joy con to a PC, so I do not see why A computer could not connect to a swicht.

    Desolate for fault jutilise google translation

    thank you of your answer

    I love when everyday people think of coloring book simple ways to hack consoles without stopping to ponder if someone much more experienced and/or smarter than them has already considered the idea.

    No more on the converter to convert with a computer is a program that allows you to create a transformer for the follower of his computer in a joy with which the sending of the order is not logical

    I don't think the switch is a transformer, or is it and they are hiding between us? :unsure:

    Just kidding, I don't really think the switch will be able to be used as a NFC interface, simply because the software or hardware is not designed to work like that. However, it may be possible to dump and rewrite amiibo images from the 3DS and Wii U themselves as homebrew is already possible there.

    What the fuck. Buy a PowerSaves and powertag, they're $10.

    You don't need the PowerSaves Plus (infact, it won't work) or a PowerSaves Prime subscription. Buy the PowerSaves for amiibo and make sure it includes the Powertag. I can't believe people are actually too cheap to pay $10-$30 for unlimited amiibos. Here's some information: it's alright to pay for something.

    Joy cons are bluetooth.... You cant just connect to a console and send data to it and have it magically read that data... Have people gone mad.

    No I don't have NFC on a mobile device, and the majority of people I meet don't have them either. (well besides Nintendo switch but it would be useless since your trying to get free amiibo.)
    I saw someone make a tool like Amiibomb but I don't really know how it works whether or not the PC links with the Nintendo Switch and uses the Amiibo, or it requires an IPhone. I think someone also made a tool to support people without NFC phones (It was amiibo2q I think that supported this.) The thing is the attachment for the PC to work with the actual NFC device (The amiibo thing you scan to get free amiibo) costs a sh*t ton of money its currently going for $100 - $200 for just the NFC reader (I don't know if its because its not produced much in the states, or they just value it really high.)

    So yes there are a few solutions for PC Support for free amiibo. But in order to get that benefit you need a lot of money, a PC, and a reliable source to generate amiibo tags so they actually work.
    Not worth it in my opinion to get a small advantage in Wii U Games, 3ds, or Nintendo Switch. I'd just use the real thing since they are cheap ($1 - $5 a pop per amiibo, and infinite use.)

    Too much misinformation.

    YES, it is entirely possible for a PC to emulate a Joy-Con using a Bluetooth adapter, given the right drivers and software. No, it hasn't been done yet.

    As an example: https://github.com/chipturner/bluetooth - this has a Python script that allows you to emulate a Bluetooth keyboard on Linux. That is, you have a Linux PC with Bluetooth adapter that connects to a second system. The Linux PC then acts as a keyboard for the second system.

    Funny you should say that, just yesterday I was experimenting with devkit apps on N3DS and four of them are designed to manage data on NFC tags. One of them was supposed to be able to write the character ID data to blank NFC tags but unfortunately I don't have any NTAG215 lying around. Another one was supposed to be used for dumping/modifying/overwriting the save data on Amiibo but I couldn't get it to work properly. This proves that the N3DS NFC hardware is capable of replacing things like the Amiibo Powersaves, we just need someone to port that functionality to a homebrew application.

    I wish people who have absolutely no clue what they are talking about would stop making suggestions like this. At best you could maybe emulate amiibo on a system that is already hacked. Maybe on 3ds with NTR, but no one has even made writing amiibo to blank nfc tags from 3ds/wiiu possible yet, let alone emulating it from within the system itself.
