    it's functional. I don't have an exploited switch, so there's no way for me to test anything. I was just trying to convert switch to nintendont, which the other way around would probably be easy to do if we could figure out the saves. by the time we do, someone will probably already have a 120 shine save. the save begins where it says "save data" in ascii.

    I might be able to try out the switch save if youre able to hex it properly. If you feel like it up here and I'll be sure to give results. im hoping the bit after it says "save data" is compatible with both and the weird text and such with the switch save not saying "Sunshine" properly is just a quirk with the switch memory card header

    dunno. when I was changing the region for a wii save for someone on here, I decompressed the save (already knew the save slots were listed one after the other), but there was a small section after each bin file that wasn't part of the save slot. the switch and wii save you sent me were decompressed. I was able to install successfully, but the switch save showed up as corrupt. that's when I looked at it in hex. they're similar. some entire sections are the same except the bytes are offshifted. I don't know if that means anything.

    The Switch save should be corrupt on a wii as Galaxy was recompiled for Switch and as a result had a change of endianess for most of the files and such. if we can determine whats different and what isnt between saves it should let us hopefully make editing saves easier

    I got some save to work. it had 120 shines in slot 1, 3 in slot 2, and a new game in slot 3. I think that might've been the gamefaqs save. I've since reinjected my old saves back. the cube save was easy through hexing, but I never managed to get the galaxy save to work.

    I hope that someone more tries to convert saves between consoles.

    A good tutorial and confirmation would be nice. Or a little tool to do it to both sides on the best of the cases.

    it may be quite difficult to figure out the saves. I wish I could help further, but without a switch to test it on, it would be a waste of time. you're probably better off waiting for a 100% save(s) on the actual game. I'm only at 17 in mario 64, 16 in sunshine (it says yoshi in the title of the shine yet I can't find yoshi. I can find the shine, but it looks like yoshi has to eat some sort of gelatin to get to it). and, I'm at 34 in galaxy. galaxy isn't too bad to go through again. it's much easier than sunshine from what I remember. those puzzle rooms without fludd can be a nightmare in sunshine.

    Are the saves per game separated when dump?
    If so, I can offer my Galaxy 100% save file I just finished, and I'm looking for a SM64 100% save file.
    Sunshine I'll 100% myself since it's the favorite of the three.

    Yes, it is separate.

    Super Mario 64 and Sunshine use .sav format.

    Super Mario Galaxy use GameData.bin

    Good news - there is 100% Super Mario 64 save - https://gbatemp.net/threads/mario-3d-all-stars-save.573965/ (thanks to OP for upload this)

    GameData.bin is a decompressed save for that game. it's just missing the banner like a normal wii save. it's exactly the same size as a decompressed galaxy save from the wii minus the banner.

    Is it possible to convert Sunshine from Gamecubue that found on gamefaq to .sav format? Is editing needed? What kind of stuffs that need to be edited?

    Oh very well then.
    Here's my Galaxy save.
    If you combine it with the previous SM64 save, we should only have Sunshine left for a 100% save.
