    I had to reformat my drive so I lost all my saves for my wii U games. How can I move them from an SD card onto the USB system storage? i have a save downloaded from here but i'm not sure what to do with it or how to get it to work.

    I have that but when I run it nothing happens. I don't understand how it works. It says press X to install it or whatever and then go back to the wii U menu but I don't see anything?

    You have to use the PC app to inject the saves.

    ok l'm confused. I opened my game up but I still don't really get how this works? am I suppose to put the save in the dump application? https://gyazo.com/8337d0d8e6b5fe475de4f7ccb4737850 the folder that's "Save" is the smash bros save i'm trying to move over.

    Isn't it possible to just run mocha cfw then load ftpiiu everywhere to manage save data? I mean it has access to the entire file system so it should work. :unsure:

    It works, but it is a hit or miss. some fail to work for unknown reasons.

    I don't understand what i'm doing wrong. Does the save need to be somewhere specific?


    Am I maybe putting in the wrong I.P? from the video I watched it looks the same as mine but my actual IPV4 has a different number at the end of it. Is 181 what you're suppose to use or something?


    Ok I got it to work but this is greyed out for me for some reason: https://gyazo.com/2d048f9226f74c4b969f649db1fa2e21

    as you can see here.

    why is his highlighted?

    Do you have the save files in the injection folder on computer? In the correct game id folder

    https://gyazo.com/1d1f3f1c678d2d5ecbec9cedcdf3b757 yes. I just moved the smash save in there as well. It's still not letting me change the options. It's still greyed out.

    Ok I managed to get it to work with Mario Kart 8 but for smash bros it's still greyed out.. what am I doing wrong?


    Alright I got a different save for smash and it seems to work now.
