I tried to convert my steam saves to switch but every time I try to load the game it shows grey stripes and it crashes. I followed the guide but it seems I can't get the filesize right, can anybody help?

for swtich, files size should be 10224(on disk), if it not, then switch will not be able to read you save

I'm using Hyne 1.9.3a at ,
It can open

you can follow @alxrite step, and then when you convert PC save data to Switch, at the end of the step, the first 4 byte need to add +4 (every 2 number is a byte)

exmaple: if you new pc save (xxxxxx.ff8) first 4 byte is BA 03 00 00 (each 2 number = 1 byte), so when you copy you .ff8 data to your switch data (make sure is the original switch save data, cause the one you include for me to convert is not the correct format, i use my to help you convert), if you follow alxrite step, you will be paste write form the fifth byte of your original switch files, after you paste write, your first 4 byte should be still the old digit. after you paste write, you will need to change the first 4 byte become extra four (this calculation is according the switch data provide).

so if your BA 03 00 00 (= 000003BA) + 4 will become BE 03 00 00 ( = 000003BE), so at last your swtich files first 8 bytes should look like this BE 03 00 00 BA 03 00 00, then no matter how you edit with hyne all will be tranfer to switch

Not entirely true. I have seen saves that are 10775+ after being converted and the switch will read them just fine. As long as the first 4 bytes show the full save, then you will be ok. But, I have also seen a save file with 10228 not work but it was correct and I had to delete some 00s. So, it can be over 10224, just in some cases.

Thank you very much! I am so grateful for this!

I played for a while on PC, please note that changing Squall's outfit on the map (not in battle) will glitch the game whenever there is a need to return to Balamb. The game will try to initiate the Attack on Dollet event.

For me, the first 4 bytes look like this. 37 0A 00 00. What does this A mean? What do I do then?


Oh ok. I think I got the first part!

Let me edit this and reverse it and I will share how to do it and help those that need it. Give me a minute, figuring it all out.

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------

Step 1: Open your Hex editor (Mine is HxD) and open your Switch file ff8slot00
View attachment 178470
Step 2: Look at the first 4 bytes: this tells you how long your save file is, no need to convert: Mine is 26 09 00 00 (read right to left) 00 00 09 26 Mine is 926
(If yours is something like: 34 08 00 00, it will be, 00 00 08 34 = 834​
View attachment 178471

Step 3: Select 04 (byte)
View attachment 178470
Step 4: In HxD I can right click and "Select Block" a byte: type in 926 (yours will/could be different)
View attachment 178472
Step 5: It will highlight a block of code. Copy this and Ctrl+N to make a new file
View attachment 178473
Step 6: Paste the block
View attachment 178474
Step 7: Save the file to ff8slot00.ff8
View attachment 178475
Step 8: Open in hyne
View attachment 178476
Edit how you like!

Figured it out!

Step 9: After you have made the changes to your save file in Hyne. You will open the save back into your hex editor.
View attachment 178483
Step 10: You will see the new file size, mine is 00 00 09 21 = 921.
View attachment 178483
Step 11: Copy all the info, Ctrl+A
View attachment 178473
Step 12: Go to the ORIGINAL ff8slot00 file from Step 1.
View attachment 178470
Step 13: On byte 04 in my ORIGINAL ff8slot00 the byte is 22. Highlight that.
View attachment 178470
Step 14: you will now right click and "Select Block" again. Now I would type in 921 as that is my new file size.
View attachment 178484
Step 15: Paste in the new info Ctrl+B (Paste Write)
View attachment 178488
Step 16: This left me with 5 bytes of extra data that was now not needed. I just typed in 00 00 00 00 00. This cleared the info on the end of the save file.

Step 17: Load your save file and if you did it right, you should be able to play the game with your new edits.

Notes: Your save file should be 10,244 when you are done editing. If it is lower or higher, you will need to go in just after your save info and add/delete some bytes. 1 byte per 1 you are off from 10,244. This should fix it if it is not loading or you are getting an error trying to boot the game. This is what happened to me and this is what I did to remedy it.

I hope this helps. Please feel free to message me if you need help!

Is there some way of automating the script? The other automatic conversion tool doesn't work and screwed up the savefile.

I don't want to post the savefile up because it just invites more people to do so.
