NRO2NSP Tutorial (Directly launch emulated games)

6 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

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

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
Author: 
- Give proper credit and enter the name of the Dev
Version:
- 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

The NSP size is going to be small it's not the actual game. The NSP is launching Retroarch > PPSSPP > Your game 
without you having to do anything, but click NSP

I'm not quite sure what you're saying 
If you're asking where to download a game?
Open up google
PPSSPP, PSX search "Name of game iso download"
Most of rest just search "Name of game rom" 

I don't think I'm allowed to link other sites sorry
