The previous thread collapsed after the Discord server suddenly shutdown, so I'm here to compile what mods we have for Switch. I also have a new server to base Switcher modding out of - I ran a fan translation for a Fire Emblem game, and already have a robust server with active mods and admins, so Switcher modders should be right at home - and safe from users constantly bugging them with requests or updates. I've given my moderation staff instructions to crack down on anyone who starts getting annoying, so everyone can mod in peace.

Before you do any modding, you'll need to find your game's title ID.
If you have the American version, your title ID is "0100BFE00E9CA000" (with no quotes).
If you have the European version, you'll need to use this spread sheet, provided by @masagrator, to find out what your title ID is: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1WnFOSgF170mJKTOBVPYggKhrp0ljev5UDy4OWvWMTII/edit#gid=0


How to convert mods to work on Switch:
  1. Make sure your mods don't include textures or scripts. If you're not sure if a mod includes scripts, just download it and look through its folders. If you see a folder called "scripts", then... it contains scripts, obviously. That means it won't work on Switch - for now.
  2. Download QuickBMS from here: https://aluigi.altervista.org/quickbms.htm
  3. Download this BMS script, made by @zkitX, from here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ilECnSgl4fkiRIj92jKIHsJ5DrETLpO-/view?usp=sharing
  4. Make a new folder on your desktop and call it "ModConvert". Extract quickbms.exe, and witcher3.bms this ModConvert folder.
  5. Search through the mod you want to convert until you find a file called "blob0.bundle" - it should be near the top. Extract blob0.bundle to the ModConvert folder.
  6. Click on quickbms.exe. In the prompt that appears, click on witcher3.bms. In the next prompt, click on blob0.bundle. Give the program a moment, then follow the on-screen instructions to close the window.
  7. A new folder should've appeared inside ModConvert. Copy this folder into one of the following two directories:
    • Place your mods inside: atmosphere\titles\[your title ID]\romfs\
    • If these folders don't exist inside your atmosphere directory, create them.

Archive of converted Switch mods:
  • Place your mods inside: atmosphere\titles\[your title ID]\romfs\
  • If these folders don't exist inside your atmosphere directory, create them.
  • If a downloaded mod already has a romfs folder, merge it with the romfs folder that already exists in your title ID folder.

I just installed Remove Intro Movies, Syynx's Compilation, Audio Upgrade, Gwent Card Dealer and Disable Storybook Videos but everything edible disappeared from my inventory. I think it's related to Syynx's Compilation, since it's the only one that modifies food and drink files.
Perhaps More Realistic Food And Drink and Potions Food Oils Bombs Bolts Rebalance are not compatible? I guess you've tested these thoroughly, which would mean they are compatible, but it does bug me that both of them affect how food works.

Hi, any updated regarding script modding?
This one is my must "All Quest Objectives on Map" to have. This is such a pain to check each quest all the time.

Thanks in advance

I'm curious now with the update that allows cross save with PC, if anyone has figured out a way to do it without requiring internet connection as the official way uses cloud saves. I know it works from PC to Switch using checkpoint, but it still doesn't work the other way around even after the update.

Maybe now someone may find a way to make a converter by testing a switch tô Pc converted save

I tranferred saves from Witcher 3 PC 1.31
to Switch 3.6

Save files shows up with image but says "damaged" when loaded.

(I transfer then manually via ftp)

how do I fix this?

Saves go through a conversion process. Need to use the built in cloud transfer option.
