Will having pirated a game prevent me from playing it normally after buying it legitimately?

    I'm met with "the software was closed because an error occurred" after purchased a game I played illegally. I am not banned.

    Yes because the fake ticket used to play the game is still installed into your console and that fake ticket can only be used to play the game in CFW. Either remove the ticket and obtain it legally or stick to playing the game in CFW.

    How do you remove that ticket? I have the same problem with hollow knight.

    Tinfoil should have the option for you to remove tickets under Ticket Management.

    I removed all my homebrew and hacks, and sxos.
    Will I just need Hekate and tinfoil for this?

    Yes. Your other alternative is mounting the NAND via memloader and modifying the ticket database manually however this is not recommended whatsoever as you may end up corrupting other parts of your NAND so stick to loading Tinfoil via your CFW/bootloader of choice.
