Hello, I am looking for some assistance. Rabi-Ribi was recently released, I was playing it on PC but would like to transfer my save over to the Switch to resume play.

I have tried exporting my save via Checkpoint and comparing the save file on the PC. The PC has files named "save0.sav" and "save1.sav" and the Switch does too. I tried copying the save0 and save1 to Checkpoint and restoring the save. However, the game loads but then crashes just before the title screen. So it seems the saves may be in a slightly different format? Is it possible that someone knows how to convert the save over, or perhaps it would require a save convertor?

also copy options and sys from save-misc to the same folder as save0 and save1. Then, erase the .sav and .dat from the filenames. remember to get rid of the period. everything else you did was correct, though. ^w^

I can give you a pointer to get started.
Make a new save file on both PC and Switch, both save files should be as identical as you can possibly get them (so if "new game" automatically creates a save file without you having to save in game before the save file is created, using a new game save should ensure the saves are identical, if not try to save in the exact same location), and compare the two with a hex editor.

    @The Real Jdbye, Had this one kid at my school who was always fascinated with Rubik cubes.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    They used to look up videos as well as use one of those sites which first you input the pattern on what you are stuck on and it will tell you the instructions on how to solve it.

    The smaller Rubik cubes are easier to solve at first.

    Then it must be difficult then.
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    from what i heard the technique is the same regardless of size so if you know how to solve one size, then you know how to solve them all

    I was only theorizing about whether this was the case.

    3x3 is super easy with an algorithm - have heard it's true for all sizes but never tried bigger

    That's what she said amirite
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    But really, there's a website that lets you solve it fairly easy.

    This is the one in particular ^^

    That's fair enough, you don't have to visit it if you're good at doing it.
