    Team [WAIN] is back with a quick update to their SX Autoloader release!
    SXAL2.png

    We have not heard from Team [WAIN] for a while, and today they dropped a bomb-shell of an add-on to SX OS, a simple little file that adds a much needed feature, 'auto-loading' of all your backup cartridges, no more hunting thru lots of icons to find a game and mounting it just click on the Game Icon you want to play right now and magically the cartridge will be inserted for you, its like having a multi-CD-changer attached to your Switch console! :)
    NEW RELEASE: (Nov. 2th, 2019)
    As usual, you can find their latest version of SX Autoloader in the TX Community Resources section, just unpack the new version overwriting the previous files.

    To see it in action check out this video below:

    @garyopa why have they moved version 2.9.2 to a stable only release when quite clearly there is still issues revolving around a linked nintendo account on two consoles and turning off stealth mode for online use on xci back ups?

    From what i gather is that all focus is on 3.0 and that will be the new beta, they know of all the reported bugs and are working on them, and the last stable was 2.5.3 which is very old didn't even support firmware 7.0, so i doubt there was really anyone still using the old stable series, it was getting confusing also always having two different releases on page, i think from now on it will just be one release, but not sure, we will have to wait and see.

    Ok thanks I see, yes it make sense now to release 2.9.2 for the time being, 2.5.3 was very old agreed. Is the autoloader ok to use on a non-banned console I see it uses sxos/titles... as its path? apart from that this is a brilliant idea a well appreciated add on I may add!

    cool should be a welcome addition for TXOS users, basically makes xci usage pretty much on par with using nsp if i'm understanding it correctly.

    Neat! I tend to use nsp purely cuz that's what I'm used to, and my Switch is banned, but this seems useful for those who use xci backups.

    that is correct. and once support for usb hdd added, it will be great, but for those with micro sdcards with just XCI's on it, it makes it simple.

    And in pre-testing before launch, all forms of XCI's were tested, split, custom, dumped, fat32, exfat, and different unusual filenames, and various folders, depending on speed of your micro sdcard and amount of xci's on it, you should not have to wait more than 3 seconds on the 'insert game card' screen as it scans, finds, and mounts, launches the cartridge for you.

    tbh it makes it superior! Not only it acts like an nsp but you don't need to have the drawbacks of an nsp... longer install times

    I rather let @blawar or @nicoboss answer that. But I wouldn't see it as a huge problem since decompressing zstandards are quite fast.

    Funny enough, most threads are filled with "So salty" "lol tx wins" stuff than actually proper discussion. If it goes nuts we will just probably just lock said people out of said topic.

    At least those posts are harmless and uninflammatory.

    Thank you for cleaning, I really appreciate that. It sets a good precedent for keeping things on topic, and trolls at bay.

    So, back on-topic, I've been trying to understand what this update does... can someone explain what it "makes better" than the previous updates? Maybe I'm dumb idk.

    In the meantime, forgot to add this cool video made earlier showing how smooth it works:

    So if you use .xci files, previously, you would have to load them by going to the SX OS menu under 'albums' on the home screen, finding the game, clicking it, and then select the game again from the home screen to launch. Now, as long as you've loaded and launched it this way once before, you can simply load and launch the game by selecting it from the home screen, without any of those extra steps.

    Wait... seriously?! This is so cool! So it's kind of like PSP's thing where it would load it in the "USD" (or whatever it was called ha) slot? Like emulate a cartridge?
