hi,
I am currently running my switch on atmosphere 19.0.0 and FW 12.0.0 I am trying to run a new game but I see that it requires FW 12.0.1 can I update only the FW and leave the CFW as is?

You also need to update Atmosphere
Update AMS to 1.0.0 and then firmware to 12.1.0, do not update to 13.0

You have to update the cfw all the time first. Otherwise your setup will not work anymore....makes sense. Why not updating atmosphere?

I have updated first to atmosphere 1.0.0 but it caused a fatal error and then I have tried another version but I didn't see the sept folder I thought that it was the problem so I have looked for the latest version that includes the sept version that's why I have chosen this version of atmosphere, is there any way to update without the sept folder? if so I will do that and then install the latest FW

Have you read the release notes with latest AMS ?
Some files have changed names, so if you are using hekate to boot you need to edit the hekate_ipl file to match the new filenames

Delete your old Atmosphere files and folders then put the new ones on the SD card.

    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
