    Hello, Wii hacking section. I have a quick question.

    Is it possible to take a Wii save, for a VC game, and extract it from the Wii... and get a .sav file from it?

    Because the Wii VC games are just Emulators, roms, and HTML coding, right?

    I want to get my Earthbound VC save onto my PowerPak and DS... wondering if it can be done, and what tools are needed.

    Thanks for your time.

    Just use Savegame Extractor or FE-100.

    You will get the savegame, the saved state (not available in N64 games) and the banner.bin (or various .ppm files if you use an old FE-100).
    Maybe you will have to change the endianess of the save file if you want to make it compatible with some PC emulators.

    But Savegame Extractor only works with Disc based games.

    Yes, sorry. I wanted to say Savegame Manager. Savegame Manager can extract VC/WiiWare savegames also.
    Savegame Extractor is obviously outdated.
