So any number of shops can be added to tinfoil at the same time, as well as other locations?

If this is the case how does tinfoil decide which one to use?

Is there a priority setting? Is there a tinfoil guide?

So even though HBGShop is "closing" can we still download/update games from there through JITS server? Or do we need to find another software? :)

Yes we are not going anywhere

Higher in file browser is higher priority

HBGshop is closing, as in the server that hosts the files. HBG itself continues. Since JITS and basically any other shop (if there is any) are only gdrive clones of the hbg gdrive, JITS will still offer all the files, only with a slight delay maybe.

Use the drive share (must donate for access), then back up that source to 2 other cloud sources, and then make a local archive that you keep up to date on local RAID-1 (you go obviously go higher but this is costly). Once you're caught up, you can just script daily updates to take place automatically. Afterwards, your local nut server is just as basically as good as HBG.

I know this is all very obvious (and expensive) but when you think about the entirety of what you're storing, it's really not bad at all. Rather have something and not need it than "need" it and not have it (not that video games are life and death - though thats just me!)

I don't see why I should ban him if it's "his games".
Even if theyre your games, if youre updating them on a dirty nand you use cfw on youll still connect to nintendo and get banned. And if you arent on cfw... Then i dont even see why you would be in this thread commenting about updating games

Apparently HBG SHOP is shutting down because Google has limited download consumption per account to 2TB per day.

It is an issue and we are working on resolving it. I dont actually believe that is the reason hbg is quitting, but its certainly affecting them and us. We hope to have a fix ready soon.

The only thing I can imagine is like the robots in the Matrix movie.

Is that still affecting HBG's "paid" service. And I mean the word paid sarcastically but that's really what it is.

Am I still correct in thinking that Tinfoil on atmosphere won't allow google drive authentication over network, only through usb?

Yes it is, you can copy it to your own drive and will hit the quotas until its all copied. But once it's all on your drive, the quota wont matter. :yayone:

    first of all, there should be exactly zero reasons to place your sweaty balls on any of the equipment - generally you are supposed to wear clothing at the gym
