    Switch Cheats Updater

    [​IMG]

    A Nintendo Switch homebrew app to automatically update your cheat files for your installed games (and not for the entire library). That way it doesn't clutter your SD card. Supports Atmosphere, ReiNX and SXOS.
    Fetches the latest cheats from the main gbatemp thread (thanks to @matias3ds) through my mirror (updates once a day).

    Blacklist titles
    By default, this homebrew will overwrite the existing cheats. If you have your own cheat files that you'd like to keep as is, you may add the title IDs of the corresponding games, one ID per line, to /config/cheats-updater/exclude.txt. Use http://tinfoil.io/title to find the title ID of a game.

    Download
    Github release: https://github.com/HamletDuFromage/switch-cheats-updater/releases
    Github repo: https://github.com/HamletDuFromage/switch-cheats-updater

    Please note that this homebrew merely places .txt files in the appropriate directories. If after using my homebrew the files are there, then it did its job. For any issue related to cheats not working, I won't be able to assist you and recommend you ask in the relevant threads

    Awesome work.

    Question: does it give me the option to pick and choose which games i want to download the cheats for? or does it download cheats for all games that i have installed?

    Right now it downloads the cheats for all the games you have installed. In the future I might implement that feature, but don't hold your breath

    EDIT : you can blacklist titles

    Nice app, this is much better than how EdiZon does it.

    You're done, it put the cheat files in atmosphere/contents. Now launch a game (and hold L I think), launch Edizon in applet mode and click the cheats button. From there you can enable the cheats

    It will only download for the games you actually have and not all of them.

    Yes, correct, but as linuxares said, it only does it for the games you have currently installed.

    Awesome. Thanks, but Edizon is expecting atmosphere. I get these....

    im familiar with the red screen, but I don’t use atmosphere. Should I move the zip that was downloaded to another directory? Also, titles.zip was saved to E://switch/

    Ah. I'm not sure how to use cheats with SXOS. My homebrew should have put the cheats in /sxos/titles, which is where they should be for sxos, but I dont know what to do afterwards... Doesn't the sxos homebrew menu have its own cheat menu?

    Titles.zip should be downloaded the same directory has switch-cheats-updater.nro. So it'll be in /switch/ if you put it there

    Nah, titles.zip is just the archive. What's important is the extracted cheats. And they should be in the right place (/sxos/titles)

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Just use the cheats menu from SXOS's homebrew menu

    Yeah but you shouldn't have to do that, the cheats should be extracted by the program... The point being that it only extracts the cheats corresponding to your games, not all the cheats for the entire library. If you do it manually, there's no point in using my app. It's hard to troubleshoot because I don't have sxos. When you first used the app, it didn't extract them to /sxos/titles?
