Hello there
I am new to the Wii U mods and stuff, I would like to know if the following is possible:

I have 40hr save state of Twilight Princess on my homebrewed Nintendo Wii.

I would like to know if it's possible to somehow transfer this save state to Wii U and keep playing Zelda TP HD on the Wii U.

If it is not possible, I would like to know if it's possible to get a save state of Zelda TP HD from another person and transfer it to my Wii U so I wouldn't need to play the whole thing again.

Thanks!

No you can't use it for the HD version, only for the wii version from disc or usb loader ( no vcgame version for it).
You want to modify a wii savegame to make it compatible with wiiU save, I don't think it exists, sorry..

but you can find some saves around where you want. like here: https://gbatemp.net/threads/zelda-twilight-princess-hd-save-compilation.581253/

or on reddit discord..
Great! So I would like to use a save game from someone else and put it on my Wii U. Can you tell me where I can learn how to do it?

I've tried taking those save states, copying them to my Wii U SD Card... but it doesn't seem to work. How should I proceed?

I've managed to do it by using SaveMII (not Saviine). I first launched Zelda TP HD and created a save state by saving the game once.
Then I went to SaveMII (again, saveMII, not Saviine) and dumped my save state to my SD card.
Once I did that I put my SD card in my computer and copied the folders I've got from the internet in the exact same order for Zelda TP

Once back to the saveMii on the Wii U I realized I couldn't copy the save state to my first user, it always showed an error message... but I could copy it to my second user and I am not certain of the reason why...

I guess it's because my first user is a Brazilian Nintendo Account, while the second is a USA Nintendo Account... Maybe the saves I've got from the internet were also from a USA account (actually they were from CEMU, but whatever)

Anyway, I've managed to copy the save state and now I can resume playing from where I wanted to.

I hope this helps anyone who wants to copy save states from the internet and is not understanding how to use Saviine with all that IP Config and local server bullshit, simply use SaveMII and copy/paste the saves directly to your SD, it's that simple.
