I can't get a single game I dump to play. I have a 512 GB SD card in exFAT with a 29GB partition in Linux for an emuMMC (I think) Switch is unpatched on 10.2.0. I can get the homebrew menu up and running for the most part but can't seem to get anywhere when it comes to backing up my carts to my SD so I don't have to swap carts anymore. I'm not interested in installing downloaded game ROMs I just want to backup the games I own and be able to play w/o the cart inserted but after dumping the game in various ways it always says the game is corrupt. please help me.

I have both Lockpick and Lockpick_RCM and have tried dumping/saving keys and fuses but nothing seems to be correct. after trying to run a dumped game even after re-inserting the cart the game still says corrupt and I have to delete the game

You sir... are my hero! thank you kindly. That seemed to do the trick. Now, would you happen to know when dumping my games is there any reason to retain the key? Is there a thread that better explains what all the option are for in the NX dumping tool?

    If I want to play something else, I'll just use

    another system.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    But playing them on Android on Switch is playing them on a Switch

    how powerful does your phone have o be to run switch games
  • Skelletonike @ Skelletonike:
    My bad, misread your post due to the chat cutting the sentence
  • S @ salazarcosplay:
    emulator will let you back up your saves and also let you upscale to 1080p
    4k
  • S @ salazarcosplay:
    I wish I would have bought a large tv when they had large lcds that were 480p and 720p
  • S @ salazarcosplay:
    it would have
    made eveythign looks sharp and crisp
  • Skelletonike @ Skelletonike:
    I don't need upscale or 4k on a switch
  • Skelletonike @ Skelletonike:
    Portable is the best
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Those tvs are all over Facebook marketplace, Craigslist, and the local recycling center for free
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    My daughters boyfriend just got a 36" Sony CRT for free at the recycling center. Works perfectly fine. He uses it for retro consoles and watching anime.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    I've never used my Switch outside of my home. I don't care much at all about portability. It's always docked.
  • Skelletonike @ Skelletonike:
    I'll need to get a small CRT eventually for older systems, preferably one of those with VCR
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Switch 2. 1440p baby!!!! Lol
  • Skelletonike @ Skelletonike:
    I love my portability, Steam Deck and Switch are my most used systems.
  • Skelletonike @ Skelletonike:
    Got a Series X and a PS5 but I don't use them that much.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    You must have great eyesight. I can barely read text when playing games on a 55" tv.
  • Skelletonike @ Skelletonike:
    Pre-ordered FFVII Rebirth's DE but haven't touched it yet.
  • Skelletonike @ Skelletonike:
    Not really, switch games have a pretty good hud and ui for the size, steam deck depends, fortunately some games allow to increase the HUD and UI.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    You can play both Series X and PS5 on portable devices. Including on your steam deck.
  • Skelletonike @ Skelletonike:
    I'm not a fan of streaming.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    You seem to move your goal posts quite often. Shrug.
  • Skelletonike @ Skelletonike:
    I tried streaming on the vita back in the day
