How did I got started with SMO Modding

  1. hacked/modded switch
  2. own legal copy of Super Mario Odyssey (game cart or eshop)
  3. PC with windows 7 or 8 or 10
  4. ability to figure/find infos on gbatemp or google.

basically, I have past experiences with nintendo console modding and game modding.
I started with putting atmosphere cfw on my switch and watch bunch of youtube videos.

I am going to make this quick and short and more focus on starting on modding the Super Mario Odyssey game.

  1. dump your game and get romfs files on your pc.

  2. get switch-toolbox from here

  3. get Odyssey Editor from here

  4. setup the switch-toolbox and Odyssey Editor on your hard drive.

  5. watch the tutorials on youtube below:
