Time Setting script lets you launch the NES golf game on your Nintendo Switch
The following is for hackable Nintendo Switch firmwares, namely 3.0.0 or lower.
Developer jam1garner has added a script to the Pegaswitch repository that lets you set the system time of your Nintendo Switch. The main use case for this is to be able to launch the easter egg golf game (“flog”), which can theoretically only be launched on July 11th.
Users of the script can now set their console’s system timer to July 11th, then follow the instructions to launch the hidden golf game. As mentioned above, this requires your console to be hackable, which can only be done with firmware 3.0.0 or lower at the moment.
Since the dev’s announce, the script has been merged into the reswitched repository. You can get all the scripts there, then follow the readme to run scripts.
To run (courtesy of reddit):
- Host Pegaswitch with Node 2.
- Set Switch’s DNS to IP address of your PC
- connect, then run: evalfile ./usefulscripts/setRtc.js
