All in one Zip:

1. In the root of your MicroSD card, there should be a folder named atmosphere.

2. Within that folder, there should be a folder named contents. Inside that, paste the contents of the zip. 

3. Profit

This mod is confirmed to be working on:
Atmosphere 0.15+
Switch Firmware 11+

Only use this mod on BOTW 1.6.0 with ALL DLC installed

For more help, please refer to this page:


Make sure you are not using any other mod before installing this mod.

The Standalone BNP does not include any other mods, it only has Zelda's Ballad v1.2
Please use these mods in addition to this for a full experience

Remember, if you are going to use any mods/models/textures for a video, please give proper credits for the original mod creator's hard work :)
I will release updates for this port when Zelda's Ballad is updated.

    Does the Standalone .BNP suppose to have options? I am trying to use it with Girly Animation Pack and assume I should select the "Link Animations" option but there are no options during installation using BCML.
