    Quick tutorial, how to edit yours save file. The file is not encrypted, so you can easily edit your save.

    What you need?
    -Skyrim Special Edition on PC
    -Hekate
    -Save
    -Save tool https://gbatemp.net/threads/yallarenuts-save-tool-aka-switch-save-dump-hack-job-by-3096.503569/

    1) Run Hekate
    2) Run Homebrew Launcher and start your Save tool
    3) Dump Skyrim save
    4) Copy on PC
    5) Edit the extension from *.sav0 to *.ess
    6) Copy your save to Skyrim save folder
    7) Run Skyrim, edit your save etc
    8) Exit, and change the extension back to *.sav0
    9) Inject your save back to yours Switch
    10) Done :)

    Dont use any mods on PC. When your will run your switch save you will get an error about "Hyrule.esm" file, just ignore that.

    Fascinating. That they included the hyrule data as an ESM means that when cart dumping becomes a thing, it will not be a console exclusive. :P

    It also means that they most certainly *DID* leave the loading hooks for plugins in the title. :P

    *Even more eagerly anticipates a cart dumper/loader*

    Remember the guy who loaded Hyrule.esm on a pc the textures didn’t work so we need to work that out also for mods

    I noticed that the image format for the thumbnail in the save package you sent me was non-standard. RGB data is in the wrong order/endianness. (have not fully explored.) However, that is a minor quibble that a batch processor can fix.

    If only you could PM the guy and ask for the Hyrule esm data if it wasn’t copyrighted

    Here you go be careful taking off the tunic it has over 1,000,000 health and you will die immediately if you remove it unless you use earthreal shout or don’t have the hylian shield equipped
    *hylian shield is also massive OP on health points

    Back up your own saves before you inject mine

    but... there's no link to the PC save editor? Or to a page that lists how to hex edit it? a quick Google brings up stuff from 2015...
