    It does not take way more time. It may take more time if you do it the old way. Put it on SD and install, but it is only the install part which takes the extra time. And that one depends on your SD card.
    Can't argue with that, because that is a personal experience. I usually play games and once I am done with it, I uninstall it, because I have all the NSPs backed up, so I can reinstall them any time I want. That's also why I have so much space for on SD.
    No please no, not this argument again. If you can't wait for something to install, you might don't want to wait for it to even download, so you should just buy it physically instead. Seriously, worst argument ever.

    It’s true! A installed NSP is faster than XCI, and not only with CFW. The Cartridge-Loading is slower than a installed title in system-memory

    This isn't hard to understand. If you had A CHOICE to wait a year for a game or just get it now, what would be your choice? In this case I have a choice and I made my decision based on the incentive.

    You still have to wait no matter what. It's just a stupid argument. If you want to play it so much, buy it because you probably can't wait for the download.

    LOL it isn't a stupid argument. Obviously we have to wait in SOME way. There are loading screens. Going to the store, etc. But I think you miss the point with what we CHOOSE to wait for. Why would I walk 3 miles to the store when I can get on my bike and get there faster? What is there to be gained? My point is I can wait a million years if I had to... But I don't have to so why would I? There's no incentive of this "Extra" waiting, while obviously the base waiting is not something someone can control.


    But anyways, this is off topic, proceed, proceed. LOL

    Thats a totally different thing, that takes the xci and installs the nca and related things just like a nsp would. The major point behind most people wanting to use xci is less of a trace of weirdness on the system to lead to a ban.

    Also the ability to customize xci's turning them into a complete game package with updates/dlc via NSCBuilder without the need of installing nsp files on our sd cards. The wanting is more than just a precaution of a ban now.

    If new DLC comes, you still have to install it or replace the whole XCI.

    The best way to handle that is to wait when the game has all DLC released before creating our own Deluxe edition. Before that happens then installing nsp dlc/updates is more convenient.

    How is replacing already installed game (XCI with everything for NSP with everything) more convenient than leaving it already installed then?

    You read my comment wrong. "Installing nsp dlc/updates to an sd card is more convenient than repacking an xci every time theres new content still being released". Thats why I stated its best to wait when the game stops getting support to create a full game packaged xci containing all content. Also the user can then delete all the updates/dlc of the said game off the sd card to regain some space if mounted on an external HDD.

    Yes, but who is willing to wait while not going to play it? By the time you wait for the whole XCI, you probably already have the game as nsps with all dlcs and updates (that's what I meant).

    You'll be surprised how many of us rather have a full game xci. And honestly most Switch games have ended their DLC support to make this approachable. I have bought Xeno2, BOTW, & Fire Emblem Warriors carts including their season pass, but it didn't stop me from building a custom xci with all their DLC intact. Might seem unnecessary to you, but it has its perks including reducing storage space deleting content on sd card thats already packed in the xci and I don't have to switch out my physical carts ofc. Oh btw if they ever decide to install the custom xci they wont have to worry about re installing any dlc b/c its already there within the xci. There are sites out there that have custom pre made xci saving us the trouble looking for individual nsp files as well:)

    Im not saying they shouldn't play the game by waiting its support to end, Im saying thats the best time to build an xci with all dlc.

    There's nothing wrong with building an XCI, and then building another one later with the new DLC. The perks of using XCIs are good enough to have to rebuild the files again in the future.

    Custom XCIs don't carry a greater risk of ban? I have all those games but don't download the DLC

    I imagine if I didn't pay for the DLC it would, though.
