    Hi guys

    Not sure if this is the right sub-forum or not but I've been looking for a way to get the timestamps from wii save files for archival purposes. Most newer consoles keep a date and time in the save or at least in the files of the save but everything I've used to examine the Wii saves (official menu, savemanager gx, etc) does not show any kind of timestamp.

    Browsing them in FTP just gives them all a default date of 1970 and downloading them would create new timestamps anyway as they would be copies of the originals.

    Does anyone have any experience or ideas about this?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi,

    I don't know for Wii games but on the Wii-U, it is writen in meta/saveinfo.xml
    This file give the "last played date" as a timestamp defined in Hexdécimal based on the J2000 epoch for all accounts that have played the game.

    To convert the timestamp in date :
    • convert value from HEX to DECimal value
    • convert DECimal timestamp value to date
    Have a look at this page : https://www.dcode.fr/timestamp-converter

    Maybe on Wii games, there is something similar.
