I don't remember ever coming across this, but now after I apply DLC's to my games, and trying to launch in atmosphere, I always get "unplayable downloadable content or update data was found. connect to internet to check software status"

I still have the option to start software anyways and play, I havent played much so Im assuming simply no DLC works but the game is still fine. This is just with recent games, I have other games that give no such message, and also have DLC applied to them.

Then the said game requires the latest update for the dlc to work. Not the switch update the game update

That was my best guess. Maybe a region thing? A bit of a stretch I know…
true I wondered about this myself tbh, at some point I figured this HAD to be the only possible reason.

well anyways I tried re-installing everything from scratch all over again with one game, however it did not fix anything. Still, I guess it could be a region thing cause I have no idea what else.

well im aware of when games showng when they are not up to date, mine do that as well if they are not the latest version.

However these games do not, as I would expect since I'm pretty sure I have the latest update. But the moment of applying the DLCs these messages happen, so I am thinking there is some sort of region problem.

Any news on which games???
I'm not sure but I wonder as updates for a game roll out and DLC is also rolled out. IF your on v1 Game and the DLC was released for V3 game iit may be possible it won't work. you'll need the update.

If there's more than one update I'm not sure if you need them all and need to install them in the correct order (can you go from V1 to V3 or do you need to install V2 first etc). Also will a V2 update overwrite a V3 one you've already ran?

It could even work in one game and not another depending on what checks the developer has used. Id say as a general rule if you've got the latest update file for the game it should work most of the time with DLC.

If you let me know which games I'll experiment with it.
