Hi All,

So I have been getting the NCA Placeholder error when I download anything from Tinfoil.
The shops I have used are confirmed fine to use.

I have been suggested it could be my sigpatch which I used the ITotalJustice one where all I did was download the Zips and throw them into my Atmosphere and Bootloader folder.
Please could you inform me if I did that correctly or could be another error?

So I updated my sigpatch, it doesn't seem that is the problem.

I notice the NCA Placeholder error is really frequent.
Does anyone know how they solved this?

Its most likely an error with the installer. I highly recommend you to switch to TinWoo Installer instead. Its what I personally use and have never run into any issues while using it.

    Yeah they should send something with 5000 HP over there and REALLY tear it up.

    Around the Moon in 80 hours.

    Tesla really needs to step their game up if they wanna tear up tracks on the moon

  • KennieDaMeanie @ KennieDaMeanie:
    The problem being is no electric chargers within 20 miles of each other are on the moon

    yeah send a cybertruck up there

    it looks like something from space anyway

    just need to add folding solar panels to it

  • Veho @ Veho:
    Jut have it nuclear powered.

    Like submarines.
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    submarines are quite a lot bigger

    i don't think we have reactors small enough to fit in a car yet
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    But the generator itself is relatively small.
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    And in any case you couldn't get proper cooling on the Moon so a powerful nuclear generator is out of the question.

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    just run it at night

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and run on battery power at day

    Cooling issues.

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    the moon is like -170C at night i'm sure that's enough
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    And the only way to take advantage of that cold is to burrow cooling fins into the ground.
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Contrary to popular belief, the vacuum of space is not cold, it's nothing.
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Heat does radiate from warm objects but the effectiveness of radiation cooling is negligible.
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    You need a medium to take up the heat and take it away.
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    And the denser the medium, with a higher specific heat capacity, the better.
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    This is why water cooling is better than air cooling.
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    And why cooling is a major problem in space.
