    Hello Community,

    why is not possible that nobody has yet develop a loader for XCI formats or reconstructed the backup loader of TX?

    Because pretty much anyone who could do it, doesn't give a crap about it

    Because nsp's are serving people well at the moment. Nobody has any interest in writing a piracy loader, and converting xci to nsp is done easy enough.

    However, it's about people not paying for backup loading and destroying TX business

    I mean, the SX product lineup already sold a bunch so I'm sure TX already made their target. So there's not really much to destroy, which gives people even less reasons to write a piracy loader.

    I think TX can make even more profitsConsidering how many switches could still be sold. That's why it would be so important to reconstruct TX's features to make them bankrupt. It's never too late for that.

    You can already install XCI files and/or convert them into NSP files, so there isn't much of a point.

    Let's say something everyone said before. It is not needed.

    Guys, you still don't understand. Own XCI games are much safer than converting them to NSP.
    And I find playing XCI much more comfortable because I don't have to install it.

    Its also possible to use self created xci dumps online, if a xci loader implements propper cert emulation and you are not to scared to go online in cfw (which you should only do if you are prepared to maybe be banned some day and know what you are doing).

    Let TX be? I'm sure people who use it at this point have chosen to do so (considering they've been exposed).
    We already USB install (Tinfoil) which equates to copying XCI on the SD.

    I get it that pl favor over nsp b/c its the same thing as pkgs [ps3, ps4, vita] and cia[3ds/2ds] Thing is not everybody has the double storage to install them so it becomes a hassle to delete a game or 2 just to install a new one. Yeah ppl will say "Just get a bigger SD" well thats kinda the point xci's can be on external drives with way more storage. A 3TB can cost the same as buying 400GB SD card maybe less. Tho imo nsp's really shine on Emunand for safety sake of not installing them on the sysnand

    How? I can never get the 'install over usb' option to show up in tinfoil.
    is it because i'm on 3.0.0?

    Xci > nsp. This isn't like the cia/3ds days... It's the same effect and more convenient. Oh well.

    I think a free xci loader is needed for those who make electric copies are backups of the era cartridges so you're still able to play online with them converting them from xci to nsp in order to play could get you banned I'm assuming correct me if I'm wrong I like my physical games but I still want everything on one system

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    One more thing and easier to just copy over a xci and just start paying then to copy over a nsp files then install it just to play it just making sure that you have enough free space to install it after you copied over to your SD card. I'm not talking about those who can use a USB drive to install the game from or Network

    How is going to a special menu, each time you want to play a title, more convenient than something right on your homescreen? And how about the extra space xcis take compared to installed NSPs?

    Well... There is XCI trimming. Although that increases the chances of a crash happening.

    You can automaticly trim them while dumping them, so at least for legal backups it's no extra step for the user.
