    [Switch] Atmosphere settings tutorial

    By ELY_M,
    changing how you launch hbmenu and games
    This is the default loader.ini config in /atmosphere/
      Hidden Content Like this post to see the hidden content.
    I started with atmosphere 0.8.3 that I normally tap on album icon to open my hbmenu and tap on games to open games.  
    When I updated to 0.8.5, I open my album to see my own gallery of pics like in OFW.  I read thru change logs on the github.  
    I had to press R to open hbmenu from my album.  I open games to see hbmenu.  I would have to press R to open one of games to game.  

    I decided to make it abit easier by editng my loader.ini  
    I added ! before R in this line override_key=R
    making this line to be override_key=!R   

    next thing, when I open one of my games, it go to hbmenu.  
    I figured out that it will help me to get full RAM for retroarch or other homebrew apps.    
    I decided to leave it to true because I run retroarch.  

    I know some people do not need full RAM.   
    if you do not need full RAM, you can change this line
    override_any_app=true to override_any_app=false
    so you do not have to hold R when opening your game.     
    My own loader.ini here Hidden Content Like this post to see the hidden content.
    Disabling Cheats Atomsphere come with cheat engine enabled on default settings.     
    I saw that many people have issues with games or want cheats disabled.      

    Open system_settings.ini in atmosphere folder and find this line

    dmnt_cheats_enabled_by_default = u8!0x1

    change this line to
    dmnt_cheats_enabled_by_default = u8!0x0
    Custom Boot Screens
    I read thru gbatemp and found out that people are able to make custom boot splash screen.  
    very cool!    The custom boot splash screen have to be 1280 x 720 and rotated 90 counterwise.  
    It can be done easily in photoshop and saved as a bmp in 32bit.   

    More of the splash screens and more of my made ones too. Hidden Content Like this post to see the hidden content.  
    I add this line to BCT.ini in /atmosphere/ on my sd card.   
    then I put bootlogo.bmp in the atomosphere folder. Hidden Content Like this post to see the hidden content.

    NRO2NSP Tutorial (Directly launch emulated games)

    By EmptyBox,
    NRO2NSP Tutorial:
    This is an easy to use NSP builder that will make rediction NSPs or Retroarch Forwarders out of NROs

    This tutorial will help you create NSP versions of NRO files (GoldLeaf, NXThemeInstaller, Save Editors, etc)
    It will also allow you to launch Retroarch emulated games directly like any other Switch game without having to navigate through multiple menus NRO2NSP Download:

    1. You need to get your prod.keys and title.keys
    This can be achieved by running Lockpick or RCM Lockpick  
    It will place them in your "switch" folder found on the root of your SD Card

    2. Place them in AppData > Roaming > Nro2Nsp folder
    Example: "C:\Users\xxxx\AppData\Roaming\Nro2Nsp"

    3. Download the latest version of NRO2NSP and extract the files to a folder.
        It doesn't matter where just remember the location. 4. Run the NRO2NSP.exe

    5. Enter the settings
    App Name:
    - Enter the name of the NRO
    Title ID:
     -  The title ID can be generated by clicking the button to the right of the text box
    - Give proper credit and enter the name of the Dev
    - Enter the version of NRO 6. Import Icon
    - Google the name of the app and will usually find the image.

    7. This point you have two options 
    A. Make an NSP for any NRO (Example: Goldleaf, EasyRPG, etc)
    B. Make an NSP for Retroarch that will launch emulated game without having to navigate Homebrew and Retroarch nro

    A. Option One - Any NRO:
       1. Click "Standard Nro Forwarder"    2. Select the bubble for "Sdmc"

       3. Enter the path to NRO on your Switch  "/switch/InsertName.nro"
       - Example: /switch/NxThemesInstaller.nro

    B. Option Two - Retroarch NSP:
       1. Click "Retroarch Rom Forwarder"

       2. Select the Core Path
       - This will bring up a menu showing list of cores select the one you're using for the game.
       - PPSSPP Example: /retroarch/cores/ppsspp_libretro_libnx.nro    3. Select the Rom Path 
       - You can use the menu provided and add name of game and file format 
       - PPSSPP Example: /roms/Sony - PlayStation Portable/NameofGame.iso (Name.fileformat)
       - You can use any rom path you like for example this is what I used for Legend of Heroes Trails in the Sky
           "/ROMS/PPSSPP/Legend of Heroes - Trails in the Sky, The.iso"

    8. Click Build NSP 
    - If you get an error make sure you filled out all the information
    - Added your prod.keys and title.key to correct location 

    9. Install the NSP (Copy to the device or install over USB)

    I wrote this pretty fast if I missed anything or if you're having issues just ask I'll be happy to help

    Removing Auto RCM After ChoiDuJourNX Updated

    By savememrtako,
    I had got to 5.1 or 5.2 the normal official way. I have now upgraded to 6.2.0 using ChoiDuJourNX. Am I correct that if I now remove auto RCM it will simply burn the fuses, but carry on working. I'm getting sick of the battery drain and want to disable auto RCM, but want to make sure there's no brick risk? Please can someone advise me?   Thank you
