    NOT MADE BY ME. I TAKE NO CREDIT FOR THIS.

    This was made by a generous anon on the 4chan /vg/ boards.

    http://www18.zippyshare.com/v/1orIqC0V/file.html

    Instructions:
    Backup your MHX and MHGen save with JKSM (Launch MHGen at least once so it can create save data)
    Copy the "system" file from the MHX backup to your pc
    drag and drop the "system" file on top of cgen.exe
    Cgen will create the MHGEN save and put it in the "out" folder
    Copy the system file from that folder and paste it into the folder with your MHGen backup on your sd.
    Import the save back into MHGen with JKSM

    All done!

    Launch and enjoy!

    Remember that MHgen saves to the ExtData on your SDcard, so you want to choose the ExtData options in JKSM and not the Save options.

    It's not... check and compile source code yourself. It does access and write to files on your drive that's why useless anti virus suits probably trigger.

    Does this work if we put mhx save to retail MHGen or is that another case?

    Digital and retail share the same data since both access extdata on SD

    Every time I drag and drop the backup onto program it says the program has stop working, what am I doing wrong? Could someone convert my save for me? I don't get why it is not working on my computer.
