Step 0 - Estimated System Requirements

If you have a powerful gaming PC, or just want to go on ahead, you can skip this and proceed to Step 1

Step 1 - List of needed files

Files you will need

Step 2 - Setting up Ryujinx

Note: These steps were referenced from the Ryujinx Setup and Configuration Guide on GitHub, but modified for portable mode. For troubleshooting any issues, you can refer to the linked page of the original guide.

I. Initial Setup - Placement of prod.keys

  1. After downloading the Ryujinx archive from above, extract it to its own folder.

  2. Go to the folder where you extracted Ryujinx, and open the folder named "portable"

  3. Inside the folder named "portable", open the folder named "system", and copy your prod.keys file here.

II. Initial Setup Continued - Installation of Firmware

Now that your keys are installed, it's time to install a firmware.
  1. Open Ryujinx (double-click Ryujinx.exe). There should be no warning about; if you still get a warning, go back through the prod.keys steps and ensure you have placed the file correctly.

  2. Now that Ryujinx is open, click Tools > Firmware > Install from XCI/ZIP

    This brings up the "Choose the firmware file to open" window.
    Using the Ryujinx window, navigate to the location of your firmware .zip file and click Open.

  3. You will be asked to confirm whether you want to install the firmware. Make sure your prod.keys are at least as new as the firmware you are installing!
    (Your firmware version number may vary)

  4. Click Yes. You will see a message that the firmware is installing

    and was successfully installed:

  5. Click OK. If all went well, you will now see your firmware version listed as the "System Version" in the bottom right hand corner of the main Ryujinx window

III. Adding the game to Ryujinx

You have keys and firmware ready to go. Time to add your games!

With Ryujinx open, click on Options > Settings. This takes you straight to the General tab.

Click "Add"

This brings up the navigation window.
Navigate to right outside the folder containing your game NSP file (e.g. D:\Switch Games), then click the folder only once, just to select it (don't double click it to enter the folder).

Once you've selected the folder, click Add.

Finally, click Save.

Your games will now show up in the main Ryujinx window.

IV. Updating the game to 1.0.2

In order to play SMB35 on this "Continued Interest" server, you will need to update your SMB35 game to version 1.0.2
  1. In the main Ryujinx game list right-click the game you want to apply an update to. Then click Manage Title Updates.

  2. In the Ryujinx -- Title Update Manager menu, click Add.

  3. Clicking Add will bring up the navigation menu. Navigate to the location of your game's update NSP files and select update you want to add to Ryujinx, and click Add.

    This will bring you back to the Ryujinx -- Title Update Manager window.

  4. In the Ryujinx -- Title Update Manager window, select the version of the update you wish to be applied to the game and click Save.

  5. Verify that the proper version number is shown in the main Ryujinx games list window.

Additional Information (optional)

What's in this "customized build" of Ryujinx?

This is a custom build that has "true bindless" texture support implemented, as mentioned in pull request #3001 on the Ryujinx/Ryujinx GitHub
This was built and provided to the community by soraxxo, also based on bugfixes by EnigmaWave, and posted in the Weekly SMB35 Tournament Discord ran by HTH24.

Several modifications were made as well from that version before we uploaded it:

Where do I find prod.keys, Firmware files, or the game and update NSP files?

These are actually files dumped from an actual Switch console.
Naturally, the only way to dump these files is from a hacked Switch.

But can I get these files without having a hacked Switch?

There ARE downloads for these available on the internet, but unfortunately we cannot provide any links for them, as these are considered copyrighted material.
