    im trying to transfer a brawl save over but these instructions are horrible. i got these steps and i dont understand what its trying to say.

    1. Copy the savegame you want to install to the SD card (directory "wiisaves/", just keep the directory structure created by the "Savegame Extractor").

    2. Run this application.

    3. Insert the game DVD and press RESET or A button (Wiimote not supported).

    can anyone shed some light on this? i truly appreciate it.

    Dowload Wii Save installer, and copy the boot.dol to your apps folder on your sd card, launch the Homebrew Channel, and select the wii save installer. Also copy the save to /WIISAVES on the root.

    do i copy the save directly in the folder of wiisaves or do i make a new folder in wiisaves with the 4 digit code (RSBP01 for PAL Brawl) then put the save in there?

    Basically, what the instructions try to say is:

    1. Have the savegame you want to install on the SD card (put it in the directory "SD:/wiisaves/", make sure to keep the folders as they were created by the Save Game Extractor).

    2. Run Save Game Installer. (by using it as a boot.dol with the Twilight Hack, or through the Homebrew Channel...)

    3. Insert the disc of the game you want to install a save for and press RESET on the Wii or the A button on a Gamecube Controller (Wiimotes are not supported by Save Game Installer).


    Of course, if you used GeckoOS to copy the save, this is the wrong way to install the save. If you used Save Game Extractor though this should be fine. Saves copied by GeckoOS are easy to spot, as they are a single file, whereas Save Game Extractor saves are a folder with several files in.

    What format is your save?

    Is it a single file, data.bin? If so, you copy the save directly into SD:/private/wii/title/RSBP/, so it shows up as SD:/private/wii/title/RSBP/data.bin. Then insert the SD card into your Wii, then go into the Settings menu of the Wii, Saves, Wii Saves, SD card, and then click the Brawl save and push Copy.

    edit: sorry for double posting

    for step 3:

    3. Insert the disc of the game you want to install a save for and press RESET on the Wii or the A button on a Gamecube Controller (Wiimotes are not supported by Save Game Installer).

    what disc are they referring to? is it brawl in my case because i want to transfer the brawl save over?

    Yes, you need to insert a PAL Brawl disk. And it has to be an original...

    Unfortunately, then you can't install that save without a modchip... If you find saves in the form data.bin those can be transferred though, but apart from that I can't help you there...

    You copy data.bin saves by:

    1a. Extracting

    On the Wii with the save you want to copy, run GeckoOS, selecting the option "NO COPY FLAGS ON". Then use GeckoOS to reboot. Go into the save manager in the settings, and copy your save onto an SD card.

    1b. Downloading

    Now if you are downloading the save from the internet, you won't be able to do this. You need to put the downloaded data.bin save into the folder on an SD card: SD:/private/wii/title/RSBP/data.bin .

    2. Installing

    On the Wii you want the save on, go into the save manager in the settings, and copy the save from the SD card.

    If you can't find the data.bin save you can do it this way,

    1. Create a save from your game, copy it to sd card
    2. Unpack this save using FE100
    3. Change the savefiles
    4. Pack the savefile using FE100, and install it using the data management screens

    Dunno if brawl saves are copy protected, if they are you should use gecko os rebooter with nocopy flags... save unpacker/packer is in my signature...
