MonsterHunterX > MonsterHunterGen Save Transfer

Guide originally created by a user on 4chan


MHX > MHGen Save Transfer


What you'll need:

-3DS with CFW or Homebrew
-Monster Hunter Generations
-Monster Hunter X
-JKSM for CFW, also JKSM is available for Homebrew (If you don't have CFW)
-This handy tool courtesy of a based anon from /mhg/
Download

Step 1: Use JKSM to extract the ExtData of MHX and copy that from your SD card to your PC (also extract the ExtData for MHGen, this'll make a later step easier)
Step 2: Extract the Release.zip file into a folder
Step 3: Copy the system file from ExtData to that folder
Step 4: Drag and drop the system file onto cgen.exe
Step 5: Grab the two output files from the Out folder and put them into the JKSM ExtData folder on your SD card that you created for MHGen in step 1
Step 6: Open JKSM and import the extdata to MHGen

Enjoy!

i see, mine was able to work at first but not able to save, maybe you didnt download any DLC since Day 1. What i know is that DLC causing the crashing issue hence this TOOL is needed.

The exe gives me this error and then crashes : System.IO.Filenotfoundexception:could not find file 'template.bin'

The cgen, program.cs and template.bin are in the same folder...
I need help figuring this out or if someone can convert it for me.

This is off topic but, is it possible to inject a custom image to the guild card? Like in animal crossing new leaf town pass card?

You need to drag SYSTEM file (Extdata extracted via SDF of MHX) to the CGEN.exe. Do not double click cgen.exe

Actually i did that, and it still gave me the error. But i fixed it by reading very carefully and i did "put the system file first with the cgen.exe in the same folder, and THEN dragged to the exe."

My problem was that i was dragging the system file while it was in a different folder thats not the cgen folder.

Can the save extraction be done with SaveDataFiler? (I don't know what's that JKSM and I'd rather use something that's already installed/working)

Does this work for the EU version of the game? I can't seem to get it to work despite getting it to work on a US copy.

Hello, I have a problem.
I started playing Monster Hunter Cross when it came out in Japan. I downloaded the DLC missions and I worked perfectly but when I passed my save to Monster Hunter Generations I had a bug that when I download the American DLC the game freezes and then it brokens my save and I need to inject it again so I can play again. My question is, is there any way to erase the DLC missions of MHX or something?
PS: And the japanese palyco that I've downloaded says "DUMMY" :/
Thank you & sorry for my bad english.

Hi.
Did I understood correctly, that MHGen's save data doesn't store in *.sav file but located in extdata?

Unfortunately my SD card gone raw and after restoration some data was corrupted, including MHG save. All gone. I found some unknown *.sav file in restored data and wondering could in be my mhg save? But i can't find where to insert it to check whether it mhg save or not. Any tips?

When I transferred my save from X to Generations I had to extract and import the ExtData so I believe so.
