    Hey!
    I've been working on a project for a few weeks now with @WerWolv, and it's a save management tool and editor which works right on your Switch.

    Screenshots


    Instructions

    First of all, if you're using SX OS, DON'T USE THIS! IT WILL NOT WORK! Use Hekate/Atmosphére except you want crashes and corrupted save files! We can't and won't fix any SX OS relates issues!

    If you're using Hekate, start up EdiZon from the hbmenu. You'll be greeted by a screen that displays every game you have installed on your switch and has a save. Just select one and then select the account which has the save you want to edit.
    You're now inside the editor. In there you can press the (X) Button to create a backup, the (Y) button to restore a backup, and (B) to go back to the game selection screen. Editing only works if an Editor Config file for that specific game and its needed Editor Script files are present on your SD card. The files need to be placed at this path: /EdiZon/editor/<titleid>.json /EdiZon/editor/scripts/<filetype>.lua If there is an Editor Config and an Editor Script file for your current game, you can press the (-) button to select a save file you want to edit. Now you'll have a list of widgets. One for every value specified inside the config file. Once you're done with editing, press the (X) button to save the changes.

    If you need any help with the usage of EdiZon or if you want to start developing your own Editor Configs and Editor Scripts, check out our GitHub page, our Wiki and join our Discord server!

    Submit your own Configs & Scripts!

    If you made your own config or script file for EdiZon, please submit them in this thread to get them approved: https://gbatemp.net/threads/edizon-configs-and-scripts-help-sharing-and-beta-testing.514775/
    You can also go there to test out and report back if the pending config files work to get them approved! Thank you very much for your help either way!

    Download and Installation
    Latest changelog
    • Added automatic update feature for configs, scripts and EdiZon. Just press the - button in the title select screen.
    • Added Regex capability to save file paths.
    • Added possibility to get a string representation of a save file in the scripts.
      • This shortens the load time of e.g big json save files from 5 seconds to < 0.5 seconds.
    • Added a hint text to the title select screen
    • Fixed LOTS of issues with the save editor crashing the switch or not displaying items correctly.
    • Stability intensifies!
    • Many small bug fixes and performance improvements.
      • I can't remember all of them anymore.
      • EdiZon's better now. Trust me.
    All Editor Config and Editor Script files can now be found in this repository for download.

    We won't provide support for SX OS users, unless their issue exists with hekate/fusee.

    Donations

    Since it was requested by some users, you can now donate here if you'd like to. Thanks a lot for that! :)

    Looks good. I like that you're using all the icons for the GUI.

    Ah, so that's what the image on 4chan that people thought was a backup loader was...

    This is actually how far the editor's done already. Only GUI code, no back end so far though

    Very Nice, I'm really liking the progress, and design, I just hope when they're all said, and done that they release a dark mode too, my eye's strain very easily to white light.

    Actually, it automatically chooses all the colors based on your switch theme. So if you're using the dark theme for the rest of the switch, EdiZon will be dark as well :)

    But... I love Checkpoint. Besides, this is for editing of saves directly, not backing up/restoring only.

    For now it's doing the same as Checkpoint, so it can only backup and restore save files. Checkpoint's still doing a much better job than EdiZon.
    The save file editor will be added soon which will distinguish it dramatically from Checkpoint.

    I did a "small" mistake, put a false instead of a true in the backup injecting function, making impossible the restoring of the files... Sorry!
    It should be fixed now, get the new release if you tried the old one.
