    Welcome to Infinite Durability Mod

    I decided to create this mod after discovering one didn't exist for 1.6.0 yet. I probably spent more time developing the tools used to unpack/repack all the files in bulk but it ended up saving me a bunch of time and I was able to complete this in a few hours. Ill post the tools in the GitHub Repo so IF in the future the files need to be recompiled, you can attempt to do so youself if I can't get around to it quick enough. Anyways, hope you enjoy as much as I do.

    Requirements

    1. Atmosphere/Kosmos (SXOS Beta 2.8 doesn't appear to have working ROMFS support right now)
    2. BOTW with update 1.6.0 Installed

    Installation
    1. Extract contents of zip to the root of your SD card.
    2. Run BOTW through Atmosphere/Kosmos.
    3. Enjoy Infinite Durability :)

    Top notch job. This'll definitely be fun to mess around with.

    Thanks for the mod! Do you mind if you made a step by step tutorial on how you accomplished this mod (like the software you used)? I would love to do some work on other games too. Its okay if you don't want too. I appreciate the mod anyway for sure!

    I used NXDumpTool from GitHub to specifically dump the "Actor" Folder from within the Update of BoTW. I delete all the un needed .sbactor files and kept the rest that contained weapon_ (approx 269 I think?).

    I followed this thread: https://gamebanana.com/tuts/12936

    installed all the crap, and essentially had to decompress the sbactor files three layers deep. This was a pain to do for 269 weapons so I wrote 2 java applications that decoded, extracted, then converted files until a GeneralParamsList.yml existed. I edited the yml in bulk using Sublime Text 3, and then ran the second java application to basically do everything in reverse to pack it all back into a .sbactor.

    If I remember correctly, the order went

    Actor
    |_ Pack
    |_Weapon_Bow_001.sbactor
    |_Weapon_Bow_002.sbactor

    .sbactor converts to .bactor

    Then out comes folders.

    Weapon_Bow_001/GeneralParamList/Weapon_Bow_001.bgparamlist
    Weapon_Bow_002/GeneralParamList/Weapon_Bow_002.bgparamlist

    Then

    .bgparamlist converts to .yml which you can edit. Then basically do everything in reverse back to .sbactor. you have to do this process for each and every weapon, so that's why the java applications came in handy for doing it all in bulk. Lastly ou install them to your romfs folder. Voila!

    This is very welcomed. There is a infinite weapon mod for Citra wii u emulater which should also work. I used it on the nsw back last year. I think I posted it on the botw save editor thread.

    I only tested with 2.8 Beta, which did not work. It could possibly work with earlier versions?

    Hey Guys, I don’t know if it is only me, but everytime I opened the Zelda BotW game, it has unlimited hearts, stamina, arrows and rupees.
    I did uninstall the whole game (title base, updates and DLCs) and deleted my saved data, title IDs for Zelda BotW and all saved file editor apps like EdiZon. Reinstalled everything and the issue persists. I tried reinstalling just base title game but it asked me for the update, so I reinstalled title base game and update ver 1.6.0 without any DLC but the problem persists. When I opened the game and started a fresh new game …. I have unlimited hearts, stamina, etc… No luck :{ I don’t know if this issue is due to some modded DLC or update.

    Has anyone run into this issue?

    In the heart of battle.
    you may have cheats enabled by default in Atmosphere, causing all of your edizon cheats to be active while you're playing BoTW. See what happens if you backup edizon to a different folder

    you can try deleting BOTW title ID folder under atmosphere/titles, seem you have cheats there. And you can disable auto-enable cheats by editing a line in atmosphere/system_settings.ini (look in that file, it has instruction inside already)
