    hello again, after doing some digging around, I've noticed that there doesn't seem to be a topic (none that I could find) on whether or not there is a way to copy my SSBB from my friends wii to my wii. His wii won't read the disk, and he's spent countless hours playing it, over 6000 brawls [​IMG]

    I know there is a program to do it, but like I said his wii won't read the disk therefore we can't get the save [​IMG]

    correct me if I'm wrong, fellow tempers, but SSBB is a Nintendo WFC game which cannot be copied because you can't have the same friend code twice.
    if u haven't used WFC and still can't copy then I don't know what to do other than to use the Twilight Hack/HBC to extract the save to an SD card.
    I don't believe having the game disc in the drive will have anything to do with copying the save

    Correct me if I'm wrong

    Yeah, I don't have brawl unfortunately and you may be right as far as the wifi codes thing goes, but using what I suggested above you can copy protected saves to SD though so who knows maybe he'll luck out and it'll work once copied to his wii [​IMG]

    I will gladly correct you, EVERY wfc game makes a new friend code. They all treat the wii with the game as one entity, so no matter how you pass around a disk or a save file, the mac is linked to your wii not the file, copying a friends gamesave may change your wfc code(possibly) but it will NEVER give you the same one as your friend.

    Um... if it's the wifi thing, then Nintendo is kind of dumb. For the nintendo ds, the save data was stored on the cart, and if you put your cart into a different DS, it overwrites your friend code, never to be used again. There is a save manager homebrew app I saw a while ago, but I'm not too sure about how it works and if it works with Brawl, although it should, because that's probably why it was made.
    If you can't get your exact save, you can always get a downloaded save. A custom save maker would be cool. You could fill it out to be exactly like your normal save, to stay legit and all.

    As long as the game has been played once on the Wii, you can copy the save data to it (there are probably some exceptions to this though...)

    Just use the rebooter function in GeckoOS to disable No Copy Flags. I think there is a hack for preloader that does the same thing, also.

    Then you can copy it back over to the Wii, no problem.

    rebooter options in Gecko OS worked! Thanks alot for the help!

    So then I wonder... if it's that easy to copy a save game to SD... why do people bother with save game extractors?

    it basically outputs files that can be edited.... for example animal crossing save file... to modify maps
