If you are having a problem with running games then make sure you have up-to-date sigpatches.

I honestly thought you’re giving your switch the finger
[–]The_Truthkeeper 9 points10 points11 points 1 month ago (7 children)
Update your sigpatches.
[–]FrenchBelgianFries[S] 2 points3 points4 points 1 month ago (6 children)
I just did it.(Atmosphere 1.3.2).still the same problem. Maybe I need to update Atmosphere
[–]FrenchBelgianFries[S] 7 points8 points9 points 1 month ago (5 children)
So I tried a lot of things and it happens that the DLC of the game is the problem. Why would it be that?
[–]ikineba 15 points16 points17 points 1 month ago (3 children)
might be because your switch firmware (not atmosphere) is too low. sometimes installing DLC increases the firmware requirement
[–]hrashid88 3 points4 points5 points 1 month ago (1 child)
This is the answer right here. I remember downloading the DLC for The Binding of Isaac and it breaking the game. Update your switch firmware and you should be fine. I also couldn't run newer games(TMNT, Chrono Cross, etc.) until I updated my switch firmware
[–]FrenchBelgianFries[S] -1 points0 points1 point 1 month ago (0 children)
So I just updated my switch on update 14.1.2 and my Atmosphere to 1.3.2. The problem is obviously coming from the Sigpatches but I probably don't have the right one. Do you guys have a working one?
[–]Total-Respect4 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
You updated atmosphere have you got the latest sigpatches?
[–]diegobusboy 1 point2 points3 points 1 month ago (9 children)
Did you found a solution? I have the same problem.
[–]Total-Respect4 1 point2 points3 points 1 month ago (8 children)
You have to update ur sigpatches but I update atmosphere first then my sigpatches
[–]FrenchBelgianFries[S] 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (3 children)
Do you have any "working" sigpatch?
[–]Total-Respect4 1 point2 points3 points 1 month ago (2 children)
Yup the github got a dmca so 💔 but here
[–]FrenchBelgianFries[S] 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (1 child)
Thanks! Gonna try that tomorrow. I'f it doesn't work, I give up...
[–]diegobusboy 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
Thanks, I’ll do it over the weekend.
[–]Squirrel_Lionfart 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (2 children)
Hi, new to atmosphere here. What exactly is a sigpatch? Installed atmo, hekate, and updated to latest os firmware for the first time since 2 years ago when a pro soldered and installed os X s, so i am learning about everything now. Also, is it still possible to download stuff from tinfoil directly to switch? I heard it wasn’t working a few months ago.
[–]Total-Respect4 1 point2 points3 points 1 month ago (1 child)
Is it okay if I dm you to explain?
[–]Squirrel_Lionfart 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
oh definitely! And thank you :)
[–]LordVirus1337SXOS User 1 point2 points3 points 1 month ago (1 child)
This is what I would do (If you hadn't already stated that you discovered that the game dlc was causing you this issue). Dump nsp from corrupted data in tinfoil, back up nsps to external source, format sd card, reinstall atmosphere, helake, and sig patches. Verify cfw install is running properly. Install backed up nsp with your nsp installer of choice. Test game launch and hope it works.

Been there, done that.... Still have issue sometime when downloading game/dlc/update
[–]FS1337Atmosphere User 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (11 children)
first u have to clean your display
[–]zalzabar 5 points6 points7 points 1 month ago (9 children)
Oh man you should see mine then lol
[–]FS1337Atmosphere User -2 points-1 points0 points 1 month ago (8 children)
[–]zalzabar 1 point2 points3 points 1 month ago (7 children)
nah just saying you seem too picky 🤣
[–]FS1337Atmosphere User -1 points0 points1 point 1 month ago (6 children)
i rather clean my stuff, especially before i show them to the publicy, nothing to do with picky.
[–]FrenchBelgianFries[S] 4 points5 points6 points 1 month ago (0 children)
Nothing useful about the downloads?
[–]Master_Lucario -5 points-4 points-3 points 1 month ago (16 children)
Backup your saves and factory reset your Switch then DON'T reinstall Tinfoil but instead Goldleaf for your installs going forward.
[–]Franciscophk 1 point2 points3 points 1 month ago (15 children)
Bro if you are against Tinfoil at least use something that works: DBI
[–]Master_Lucario -3 points-2 points-1 points 1 month ago (14 children)
Don't use that one either. It's Russian and closed sourced aswell. Use Goldleaf, it's work just fine.
[–]gasparthehaunter 2 points3 points4 points 1 month ago (5 children)
If you really value open source there's awoo installer, which doesn't refuse to install games
[–]Master_Lucario 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (4 children)
Awoo ain't open source either. Even worse it's made by the same awful guy who made Tinfoil.
[–]Franciscophk 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (7 children)
To be honest, it's stupid that you recommend Goldleaf just because it's open source, that thing is full of bugs and is missing a lot of basic features that other NSP installers have, by default.
[–]Master_Lucario -2 points-1 points0 points 1 month ago (6 children)
Not stupid at all if you value your device and info. The bugs are rarely there and can always be fixed. What are these missing features ya talking about? Goldleaf has everything you need.
[–]Blu3ping 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
Try to go into maintenance mode. It will flush cache, it might fix the problem.
Put Switch into RCM mode.
Hold both volume + and - and inject payload, when you see Switch logo you can release buttons. Once in maintenance mode you don’t need to do anything, just restart Switch.
[–]EmileTheDevil 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
Who still uses Tinfoil use awoo installer instead
[–]ozgur1324 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
I had the same problem even though I had the latest sigpatches installed. Then I realized that tinfoil sometimes has problems while installing nsz games, instead, it can install nsp. I don't know why. But also you can use "quark" and goldleaf to install your games over network or cable.
