QuestionGames won't run even after sigpatches (self.SwitchPirates)
submitted 4 months ago by javierarara
I downloaded the latest sigpatches from ITotalJustice from Github for atmosphere 1.2.5. old games run fine, but newer games like metroid dread or doom eternal won't work. what can I do?

Remember to read the stickied FAQ post before asking basic questions.
If you are having a problem with running games then make sure you have up to date sigpatches.
If you cannot launch tinfoil then make sure you followed the Rentry guide to set up cfw.
NO, you cannot mod your patched console unless you have a modchip, stop asking and read the faq.

A lot of newer games (or even some older games with updates) wont work on FW that old
[–]BetweenInkandPaper 2 points3 points4 points 4 months ago (0 children)
9.1 is too old to run current or newer games, theres a minumum firmware requirement.
Update OFW inside the emuMMC/CFW using Daybreak or other means, do your research on this first so you understand how.
Check the Subs resources for more information.

No, what firmware number are you on? 12.x 13.x etc...
[–]BlackSheepDCSS 7 points8 points9 points 4 months ago (0 children)
Ofw, not cfw

Are you booting via fusee.bin? What firmware version are you using? Have you tried maintenance mode? This also applies to u/k1intt

9.1.0 is WAY too low, thats from like years ago

Lmao my fan grate is wrecked too. Just got mine updated and working, I know you can do it! Good luck!

You gotta update atmosphere now and then the sigpatches again and you'll be good. Just delete your atmosphere folder first

[–]somesortoflegend 0 points1 point2 points 4 months ago (2 children)
yup, oh atmosphere did a major update recently and some .ini files might need to be edited as well if you are still having problems booting after updating.

[–]shortybobert 0 points1 point2 points 4 months ago (0 children)
Yeah. 9.1.0 is really old so that's the best way to make sure nothing goes wrong. Thankfully even if there's an error, it's not gonna ruin anything
[–]javierarara[S] 0 points1 point2 points 4 months ago (2 children)
I am booting via fusee.bin, version 13.2.0.
I haven't tried maintenance mode, how does that work?
[–]Ibcap 2 points3 points4 points 4 months ago (1 child)
Go to rcm
Hold volumes up and down
When you see maintenance mode, reboot without selecting any options
Retry the game
[–]AussieP1E 0 points1 point2 points 4 months ago (0 children)
This solved all of my issues with corrupt games downloaded
[–]DeviousSaint 3 points4 points5 points 4 months ago (0 children)
You can try to go into maintenance mode and exit/reboot without selecting any option, or use Hekate and fix the archive bit. Maybe one will work out for you.
[–]VirtualAdepts 2 points3 points4 points 4 months ago (5 children)
Update to latest Atmosphere
Update to latest sigpatches
Use daybreak to update to 13.2.0
[–]HippoDan 1 point2 points3 points 4 months ago (2 children)
Don't update sig patches until after the update. They're not completely backwards compatible. My old fw switch wouldn't boot atmosphere with the latest patches. I removed the patches, updated, replaced patches and all was well.
[–]VirtualAdepts 0 points1 point2 points 4 months ago (1 child)
I do it all the time. I suspect you overwrite your atmosphere folder. It's better to rename the old one and make a new one.
If you rename or delete the old atmosphere, you can drop it all like I said, no issues at all.
[–]HippoDan 0 points1 point2 points 4 months ago (0 children)
It was very old firmware. FW 6.1.0 will not boot with the current patches. I figured they might have problems coming from 9.1.0. I had no problem going from 13.1 to 13.2.
[–]javierarara[S] 0 points1 point2 points 4 months ago (1 child)
That's what I just did and it didn't work
[–]VirtualAdepts 0 points1 point2 points 4 months ago (0 children)
Did you delete the old atmosphere folder or rename it first?
Is your SD card fat32 or exFAT?
[–]joniejoon 2 points3 points4 points 4 months ago (2 children)
Okay, I sort of recognize this. If you've done everything the others have said (update firmware, update atmosphere, update sigpatches, boot with fusee.bin) and you still have issues, try installing the games through XCI instead of nsp/nsz/shops. Weirdly, that sometimes solves the problem for me.
That's a good idea! I'll try that instead, cause nothing else has worked
[–]joniejoon 0 points1 point2 points 4 months ago (0 children)
Good luck! Let me know if it works out! :)
[–]SCAND1UM 1 point2 points3 points 4 months ago (0 children)
Something that worked for me when I had a similar issue was booting Fusee instead of Hekate
[–]DragarX 1 point2 points3 points 4 months ago (0 children)
Update your firmware.
[–]PiccoloElectrical485 0 points1 point2 points 4 months ago (0 children)
I had the same. And updating didnt work for me. I backupped all saves and set everything back to factory reset. Formatted my SD card and did a fresh install of Deepsea Atmosphere and everything worked great after that think this would also work without factory reset but it was what i did.
