    as the title says...

    i just need to increase a bit of crowns (money) and i reckon a save editor is the easisest way to do this.

    If saves from PC are working for Switch, then maybe... All for 1.60 work?

    I don't have the game on my PC but my friend does and he uses a trainer. i asked him to make a savegame file for me with money cheats at the beginning so i can use it on my switch.

    i am guessing the pc version (1.32 i think) will work on switch's 1.60 version righht?

    Seems like version 1.6 is limited to the console versions, including PS4 and & XBONE. Maybe there's a save converter from those platforms ?

    There is a save for Witcher 3, lv 1 at start of the game, with full money 9,999,999 and 99 skill points. Don't recall the exact post of where it is, but it's here on gbatemp somewhere, it works perfectly as it's the one I've been using for over 15 hours now. If you can't find me DM me and I'll send it over.

    1. Play the game on switch until you are allowed to save the game manually. Save the game.

    2. Use checkpoint to create a backup of your game save.

    3. Connect microsd to pc (either thru nxmtp or card reader) On pc pc transfer the backup save file (create a copy of this save file so if anything goes wrong you can restart with this same backup. Otherwise you gonna need to start game from start and do step 1 again).

    4. Access your pc save files and rename the png and sav files to the name of your switch save files.

    5. Replace switch save files with your renamed pc save files.

    6. Use checkpoint again to restore save files.

    7. Boot game. Load the replaced save file. Profit.

    Note: you need to exit game when you backup/restore save files.

    I've gotten PC save to work on the switch without a problem but is there anyway at all to have my switch saves work on PC? It'd be fantastic if I can copy them across depending on where I want to play it.

    I tired loading one of the Switch saves on an old Wither 3 save editor to try and change the patch version to 1.31 like the pc. However it wouldn't even load it, does not seem like theres a way.
