This topic provides information about the tool for creating NFC tags in Nintendo's proprietary format for NFP (hereafter, NFP NOFT).
Create NFP NOFT by using the tag mastering tool (described later) and
noft_writer. The keys used for NOFT encryption are different for development hardware and retail units, so tags for development hardware cannot be read from or written to on retail units (or vice versa).
It can be selected whether ROM region is locked when a NFP NOFT created by
noft_writer in Cafe SDK 2.13.00 or later.
A NFP NOFT which isn't locked ROM region can be overwritten by other NTF file, and it can be reused as a different NFP NOFT.
A NFP NOFT can be created by writing an NTF file created with the tag mastering tool to a Type 2 tag distributed by Nintendo. The procedure for using this tool is as follows.
noft_writertool works with SD cards that are formatted in either FAT or FAT32. Only ASCII codes are supported in filenames.
|↓ (Select the NTF file.)|
Press L button to select lock mode.
If "NO LOCK" mode is selected, the NFP NOFT which will be created can be overwritten by other NTF file.
|↓ (Write if there are no issues with the selected file.)|
|↓ (Hold the tag over the GamePad after the Searching tag... screen appears.)|
