    Hi, I'm running sxos on 5.1 and I'm having this issue come up on my games. For example, on sbbu and dbzf it'll go past the initial Nintendo loading screen and even into the game's loading screen, but then crash afterwards. I tried using 2 different SD cards and they both have the same results, and have even tried to format them to see if anything changed but I still get the same results.
    Some games do work, but a lot of games that I know other people have had success with seems to just not work for me. Any help would be appreciated!

    Sounds like you have the file archiving check on your files. You can remove this on a mac by running "sudo chflags -R arch" in a terminal, not sure the Windows equivalent .

    Thanks for the reply! I definitely haven't tried this, but unfortunately I have a Windows laptop so I'm a little bit lost as to what exactly to change on my end.

    I found this:
    https://www.windows-commandline.com/clear-archive-attribute-from-command/

    So open Notepad, paste in:
    for /F %i in ('dir /s /b directory_path ') do attrib -A %i

    And replace directory_path with your drive letter. So if your sd card shows up as F: in my computer, it should look like this:
    for /F %i in ('dir /s /b F: ') do attrib -A %i

    Save as a .bat file, like archive.bat or whatever then run it. Make sure it doesn't save as a .txt or it won't work.

    Hi! Sorry for bringing back somewhat of an older post but I figured I may as well keep using this one as it has the info, but I still can't seem to get my games to run properly. As a last resort, would formatting my switch possibly fix this issue? Or is there anything else that I seem to be missing. Any help would honestly be greatly appreciated!

    Don’t use exfat, format your SD to fat32 and reinstall your games.

    Enjoy !
