    I have 5.5.1, so I played all the time with original discs. Now I would like to play with loadiine without discs, but I would like to continue my old saves.

    Is this possible without having the discs anymore?

    my dad works for nintendo.
    hu, doesn't you just need to load the game?
    only cartridges with save inside (for example gba, ds,3ds) or special cases (like emulators) need a way to convert the saves..

    Loadiine seems to take the saves from sd card. At least it seems like that, because the games begin from scratch.
    But my saves are in the console storage.

    Again, you'd have to use those SAVE functions to open folders/files from "other apps" and I'm not sure the permissions, you'll probably need to be in another game, not Mii Maker or the browser, still haven't tested yet tho

    Sorry, I do not really understand.
    So what do I have to do, to continue my original saves (from disc versions) in loadiine?

    Use ddd to dump "/vol/save", start the games you want the savegames from. After dumping them you can just copy them to your sd card, use the save folders that loadiine creates.

    EDIT: Of course you will need the disc for dumping. Dumping without disc is not going to work this way, rather the SAVE api like @NWPlayer123 supposes then, although there's no ready homebrew there right now.

    Hm, but ddd creates two folders: 80000001 and common in save. And there are bin files.
    But loadiine wants in sd:/wiiu/save some rp files

    I want to be able to do this too. My Nintendo Land disc is 1000 miles away right now, and I don't want to have to bring it with me all the time in the future. I got it on Loadiin, but I don't have the save copied.

    Put both the 80000001 and common folders in a dir named save in root of game folder with meta code etc. I have done this with all my disk games and you can also rip your dlc you may have bought

    Also you can move everything from common to c and everything from 800000x to u. That will work too
