So I've just gotten Dying Light and I can confirm that PC saves transfer fine!

Just:

1. Open the game and play until you can walk around the building (it autosaves and creates a save file).

2. Close the game

3. Open Checkpoint (or whatever you use to manage saves)

4. Backup the save for the game (the save consists of three files - profile_languages_settings.dat, profile_settings.dat, and save_coop_0.sav)

5. Extract your save from PC - this may be in "%USERNAME%\Documents\Steam\CODEX\239140\" depending on how you installed, it's easiest to just search for "239140"

6. Inside "239140" there are several folders - navigate to storage > out > save

7. Copy the save_coop_0.sav file and transfer it to the folder on your switch where the save is backed up (For Checkpoint it is in sdroot > switch > Checkpoint > Dying Light) - overwrite the file

8. Go into Checkpoint (or your save manager) and restore the save

you have to use a save manager first, like JKSV, to dump the saves
When I use DB installer I can access the saves directly, I don't even have to take the SD card out of my switch. That works great, but it's usb and I'm trying to go extra extra convenience and do it via wifi. I guess DB installer mounts the SD or something?

DBI actually mounts the "internal" memory of the Emummc

no wifi app can do that as far as I know

    I've got a clone, it works fine, but I can't get it to play nice with my SDcard reader.

    like an sd card slot extension thing?

  • MightyJAK @ MightyJAK:
    Yeah, to load from (and save data to) an SD card plugged into the serial port.

  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    You test that extension thing through a regular usb reader on your pc? Could just be a shit one. Bought one for my 3d printer and it just straight up doesn't work

  • MightyJAK @ MightyJAK:
    it can't be plugged into a USB reader (it's made from a regular SD card to USB adapter, but with the USB end modded to a Dreamcast serial plug)

  • MightyJAK @ MightyJAK:
    It was working fine before I installed the GDEMU, but now the Dreamcast doesn't recognize it when I boot up Dreamshell.

    Can't find any threads about this particular issue on GBAtemp or the wider intarwebz. Saw one video on YouTube that seemed relevant, but it was some dude with the same issue, no solutions offered in the comments. :/
