    The points used to get higher levelled pawns. So if your lvl 6 but your pawn is lvl 20 you pay a fee with online points, the greater the level difference more points you use. Using to save editor to generate points allows max level pawns which is 199 or infinite.

    Pc save to Switch definitely works.
    I tested it and works just fine.
    The Switch version of the game is based on the PC port, this is also the reason the save editor for PC works for the Switch file.

    Ya, it seem that when the program (from 360haven) resign/rehash's the save file, it corrupts it. I opened up my unedited save file, decompressed then recompressed it without editing anything and save was corrupted when I tried to load it.

    ok i figured out that if you grab the Savegame tool dor dragon dogma on steam, you can convert it to xml and edit it (use https://www.360haven.com/forums/thr...gma-Modding-Full-Save-Editing?highlight=dogma as reference)
    This program is a command prompt program, so open the command prompt, drag the progam into it and then space, then type "-u" then space and then drag the the save file into the command prompt and it should unpack it. The list of command is in the Readme file.

    Edit : If you just open the progam without command prompt THEN IT WILL CLOSE IMMEDIATELY

    Since pc and switch save files are synonymous. I am considering trying my save file on the PC, downloading a cheat engine table editing whatever then reinjecting the file to my switch.

    Awesome! I managed to place Secret of Metamorphosis into my inventory using this tool, here's a list of item IDs (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet...ZeSZMqOWG2YuzWcDA5aYm2PAc/edit#gid=2076196192)

    Sure, so use checkpoint to get your DD_Savedata, transfer to PC, place in the root of your C: drive, download the DDsavetool.exe and put in the same place, run CMD, navigate to C: drive root (cd C:\), then type "DDsavetool.exe -u DD_Savedata", you'll then have a DD_Savedata.xml file.

    Open that file with a text editor, find the place that begins with <array name="mItem" type="class", below that lists all the items in your inventory, the first for me had <s16 name="data.mItemNo" value="63"/> - this is the item ID, I checked using the spreadsheet to see what item 63 was to make sure it was unimportant (it was just a Beech Branch) and replaced that number with the one I wanted e.i 1635 for the Secret of Metamorphosis.

    Once done save the XML file, and open CMD again, this time typing "DDsavetool.exe -r DD_Savedata.xml" to repack the save, then you simply transfer to switch and inject the new save using checkpoint :)

    Did you change the save file name? you cant just put the ddda.sav into the switch I think.
    This is what I did: I created a backup using checkpoint, then on the computer I replace that checkpoint save with the pc one (you gotta change the pc save file name to the one from the switch)
    extension an all though The switch save doesn't have any extension; it isn't a .sav if I'm correct.

    Do that and see if it works. I've done it a couple of times like this with no issue.

    Edit: My bad my brain is still asleep, I just properly read your reply.
    If you correctly change the name (taking in mind the extension which is none) and is a "virgin" save, meaning no edits. I don't know then what could be the problem.
    I've imported a pc save file and I have also edited using OP's link to add more online points (rift crystals) with 0 issues.

    Extract the save file and change the name to ddda.sav and that's it, You pc version should be able to recognize it.

    Besides mGold and OnlinePoint, what do the other values do exactly? I'm just worried about breaking the save editing invalid values.

    I too am unable to get my PC save to work on the Switch version. No clue why. I had an idea from this though. Using ddsavetool I extracted the save data, then repacked it with the same tool. Curiously enough this seems to have worked. Perhaps you might try doing that for going the other way around?

    I think you looked at the same tutorial I did on NexusMods. But this is the hardest possible way. If you look at the posts there is a much better way. Just edit <s32 name="mSurgeryTicket" value="0"/> to say <s32 name="mSurgeryTicket" value="-1"/> in the XML instead.

    To make your files on switch work on PC you need to open the file up with the DDsavetool.exe by dragging the save file (renamed to DDDA.sav) over top of the exe then it will generate a "DDDA.sav.xml" then you can do what you like with it but then before you repack it for PC use you need to add;

    <u64 name="mSteamID" value="#############"/>

    near the bottom under <u32 name="mTimeAttackBest" value="4294967295"/> works for me. its like line 743254 or something and make sure the steamID value is your steam one, so you can find this by extracting a PC save to xml and grabbing it from there. Now we just need mods to work haha.

    Not sure why you quoted me. As you can see in the quote I said the other way around. I got it sorted though.

    PC Saves work as well, as long as you rename them in the same vain as the Switch Saves are named "DD_Savedata" remove any file extension so no .sav, or anything
