[Tutorial] Extract the content of any Nintendo Switch game

I wanted to say several things I am from Spain so if I am not well understood in English I apologize...

there are people who have problems to extract Nintendo Switch games with Switch Toolbox but if they can then use the program to see the models if they have the extraction

so this tutorial is to extract the games differently and then see the models with Switch Toolbox

Download the Switch emulator ryujinx (yuzu emulator doesn't work to extract)
https://ryujinx.org/

unzip the file on the desktop and open the emulator "Ryujinx.exe"
a window will appear saying that the keys are missing

Close the emulator
The system will have created a hidden folder in 

C:\Users\YOUR USER\AppData\Roaming\Ryujinx

copy the keys into the system folder

open the emulator again and press options and settings go to the game directories section press add
select the folder where you have saved the games and press save

when your game appears in the emulator press the right mouse button to bring up more options
press the Extract RomFS Section option and select where you want to save your extraction.
let emulator do its magic

use your extracted files with the Switch Toolbox program
to use the Switch Toolbox program follow the user tutorial Username123

Very excellent thread sir. I'll share this with my friends and I'll see what they think. Thanks for the thread. And if it's good enough I'll share what I think and what I was able to rip. I'll give some detail for any errors

What are the keys suppose to be, because when I get to the step with the keys I just get zip files that are bis, games, profiles, sdcard, and system, are those zip files suppose to be the keys? The steps don't really explain in enough detail about the keys.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'm wanting to rip the 3d models from the DC Super Hero Girls Teen Power game, and these instructions you gave us might work.

Apparently it's the product key for your PC. If you don't have one i'd assume that means no ripping.

You're on your own for that, that's not something we can assist you with here.

Great guide, just one tiny error. Yuzu can in fact extract games. Right click the game > Dump RomFS > Dump RomFS, select Full, then OK. Could be worth adding this to the guide!

Is there a way to rip models from a physical switch and physical game cart?

If you have a modded Switch, you can use nxdumptool.

Tried doing this with No More Heroes 2, but when I extract the files, it gives me a couple of folders with some of the sound effects, some of what looks like trailer footage, some textures, and two unsorted "VFS" files called data and world that I can't view with Toolbox. Is there another program you can use to open up vfs files?

Do you know how to rip the assets from Shadowverse: Champion's Battle? I have been stuck trying to find a ROM for it because I figured I could get it on emulator, but its been not exactly working Defeated
trying to figure out if they have full arts for the cards they have in game, just like they do for their actual game
