    As I have played 17 hours of the Wii U version of Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE already, I'd rather not replay all that mostly same content now that I have bought the switch version with the added content.
    I tried to restore the Wii U save with Checkpoint, but it crashes while loading the save list.
    Using a switch save with the Wii U version doesn't immediately crash and displays the current chapter and character levels correctly, but has no information one the current scene and difficulty.
    It also displays the playtime as 9999:8 in the save list.
    The best case would be that just few offsets have changed, I have my 17h wii u save and like 3 minute switch save attached, any findings are welcome.
    Update:
    I added a ~ 3 minute wii u save as well to make the offsets better comparable.

    It looks very plausible in some parts and other parts match without conversion, it's a bit strange.

    I have written a small command line tool that converts a save according to the ranges of offsets I have found:
    https://github.com/LittleStinky123/TMS_Reverse
    Some offsets are incorrect though, so it currently still crashes when selecting the save.

    Update:
    It now loads a switch save converted to the wii u format without crashing, still hangs on a boot loop though.

    The values of some data structures fluctuate that much between saves that I will probably have to look into them with XCXGecko to get their proper size so they are converted correctly.
    Especially the values from 02A0 to 02FF are really annoying.
