hacBrewPack is a tool for creating Nintendo Switch NCAs (Nintendo Content Archive) from homebrews and pack them into NSPs (Nintendo Submission Package).

Thanks: SciresM, yellows8, Adubbz, SwitchBrew

## Usage

### Keys
You should place your keyset file with "keys.dat" filename in the same folder as hacPack  
Alternatively, You can use -k or --keyset option to load your keyset file  
Required keys are:  

Key Name | Description
-------- | -----------
header_key | NCA Header Key
key_area_key_application_xx | Application key area encryption keys

### Compiling Homebrew
You need to compile homebrew with proper makefile, you can use the one in template folder  
You must use valid lower-case TitleID in Makefile and npdm.json. Valid TitleID range is: 0x0100000000000000 - 0x01ffffffffffffff  
Both TitleIDs in Makefile and npdm.json must be the same  
Compiled homebrew must have following files:  
You must place created 'main' and 'main.npdm' files in exefs folder, you can find them in build/exefs  
You must rename created nacp file to 'control.nacp' and place it in control folder  

### Icon
You should place your icon with "icon_{Language}.dat" file name in control folder, "icon_AmericanEnglish.dat" is the default one if you don't manually edit your nacp. dat files are just renamed jpg files  
Check [switchbrew](http://switchbrew.org/index.php/Settings_services#LanguageCode) for more info about language names  
Your icon file format must be JPEG with 256x256 dimensions  
It's highly recomended to delete unnecessary exif data from your jpeg file (easy way: Open icon with GIMP or Paint, save as bmp, Open it again and save as jpeg)  
If you see placeholder instead of icon after installing nsp, It's likely due to exif data  
If you have some exif data that horizon os doesn't like (like Camera Brand), Your app may leave in installing state in qlaunch  
If you don't put your icon in control folder, you'll see a general icon after installing nsp (i don't recommend this)  
### Logo
"logo" folder should contain "NintendoLogo.png" and "StartupMovie.gif", they'll appear when the app is loading  
Both files are not licensed according to [switchbrew](http://switchbrew.org/index.php/NCA_Content_FS) but i didn't include them anyway, You can also replace these files with custom ones  
You can use --nologo if you don't have any custom logo and you don't have the original ones, as the result switch will show a black screen without nintendo logo at top left and switch animation on bottom right
