    Make it read keys from the folder it running from, instead of users/.switch, yada-yada. It's really out of hand.

    Thanks for trying to help, I don't know why it's not working either since it's seems to put together a valid nsp.

    the keys are in the users/.switch to help make it uniform so you don't have 10 different copies of the same file in different locations for different applications


    No worries, I'm curious now as to why it isn't working.

    Any reason why I can't make a folder with a . in the name?

    Follow the instructions below
    • Step 1: Open Command Prompt in Windows. Open Run window [Windows key + R] and type cmd and hit Enter. or Press Windows Key + X and Open Command Prompt.
    • Step 2: Now navigate to the path in which you want to create folder name starting with dot(.)
    • Step 3: Now type mkdir<space>.FolderName
    example mkdir .switch

    windows thinks its an exe otherwise

    Because of the whole "Windows Explorer doesn't like dotfiles" thing and just Windows user profiles being structured differently, I'm thinking that hactool probably has the wrong idea there. Thinking about changing the keyfile location. I'll have the tool try both paths for backwards compatibility's sake. Open to suggestions. Other than "current working directory" / "same dir as the exe".

    Could you post hashes of the two XCIs you had issues with? Did you dump them yourself, are they scene release, etc? I'll hunt down those two and look into it.

    I have ~11 XCIs here I've tested with and they've all worked perfectly; I wonder if there's something a tad odd about those.

    Thanks for sharing this tool with us but I have to say the .switch folder isn‘t a good idea. You can not create it with the explorer, you have to use the command line. It would really be simpler to put it in the application folder. Or check if it‘s there and load it from there. Keep it simple.
    I‘ve tried it with a Snipperclips dump but the install breaks with an error. Don‘t know whats causing this.

    I'll probably never use this, but at least others certainly will.

    is zerotwoxci likely to get updated with the proposed installation directly from xci rather than unpacking nca files first, or is that not happening?

    I know zerotwoxci uses the base of this lib for manipulating the XCI themselves. But zerotwoxci did a LOT of dumb shit. and I mean A LOT, thats why it has a high chance of SD corruption. Zerotwoxci is literal garbage.

    You know what? That's the beauty of it. Message the mods. Let them know what homebrew apps are coming out. They'll front page anything if you give them enough info about it. That's why SX OS posts are so popular because every release, garyopa gives them a press release. You can literally write any app and ask for it to be front paged and the mods will do it if you give them enough to work with and enough time. They LOVE the Switch scene as much as any of us and would LOVE to write more about it.

    oh wait
    so retroarch devs messaged mods too? what about rei?
    this is a joke
    it is clear that you are paying gbatemp mods or maybe you have some gbatemp mods on your team cause it seems there are many people in your team

    I can't speak for the retroarch devs, but Chary and Quantumcat have been seen idling in the ReiNX discord so Rei/Kilim/whoever can get a hold of them pretty easily.
