    There's something up with my BOTW save files. Instead of folders they are files.

    Just sucessfully converted my friend's save who had been stuck on the Wii U verison. He now thinks I'm a god. I used Checkpoint on 5.0.2 and had no problems restoring the converted save.

    Is there something like this, but for Bayonetta, available at this time??Bayonetta on switch is a of from the WiiU versión and doesn't have anything new, so I wonder if i could convert my Bayonetta savefile, edit it with the wiiU save editor, and then convert it again to the switch format and inject it…

    Can confirm this works ^^ thanks a lot!
    My versions of the game were different between the Switch and WiiU and it still worked great. WiiU v1.2 USA -> Switch v1.3.1 JPN
    On github theres a fork of source code that OP mentioned and someone built a UI which really helped out.
    Cant post links, but if you check out JordanZeotni and their repo BotW-Save-Manager, I'm sure youll find it

    I'm pretty noob to manage save files, is there any tutorial I could follow to fully understand what to do with this files? Although I'm in the latest firmware on Switch so I don't think I'll be able to actually do anything right now, but it still would be nice to know for future reference
    Edit: managed to do it on my own worked perfectly fine

    I'm in the same spot. I have been on the sidelines and am not familiar with what to do with the files - i.e., a complete noob to this stuff on the Switch/Wii U. Can you explain in simple steps what you did? Can someone else help? My wife and I have spent 250 hours in the Wii U version, and we just can't bring ourselves to start again on Switch...

    I don't understand anything on how to inject the save. I used the save converter to convert my CEMU save to the Switch version, but now I have a *****load of questions:

    - Where do I place the new save folder, in the root of the SD card? I am using SX OS.
    - I have downloaded the save inject from github, the one in the OP, and read the instructions but, for the life of me, I don't know how to use it on the Switch.
    - If I understood the injector instructions:

    * 1. Boot game
    * 2. Wait a second or so (for the game tid to register but before the code mounts the savedata)
    * 3. Home button
    * 4. Run this script
    * 5. ???
    * 6. PROFIT

    How the hell am I supposed to do step 4, "run this script", on the Switch???????? What other software/homebrew do I need? Where should I place that file and the new save file I want to inject?

    Exactly which folders and files do you swap out? My WiiU converted folder's named 00050000101c9500 while my Switch exported folder is named something completely different. Do I just swap out the contents in these folders, the numbered folders? Or just the content of one or more of those?

    Its whats inside the folder that matters, i had 5 save slots so i had folders 0,1,2,3,4,5 then i had the saves in each along with a screenshot that displays on the save, you need to move those folders into the switch folder.
