    So it would be cool to have a tool that extract Wii/dolphin xenoblade save then convert/inject it to xenoblade 3ds save and maybe do the oposite so we can switch from dolphin/wii to 3ds

    I think it is for exemple in wii save adresse for money is xxxxxxxx and in 3ds save it is yyyyyyyyyy then you convert xxxxxxxxx value to fit in yyyyyyyyy and then you will have the same amount of money on 3ds and wii and then do it with all adresses separately ^^

    I'm afraid it's not that easy my friend... It would take a lot more just to do that.

    Sounds like way too much trouble to small reward for any coder to bother with, even assuming the conversion could somehow be possible, which I doubt it'd be. Just like there's no way to convert an SNES ALttP save to a GBA one.

    Decrypting isn't really the problem. Converting is. You're asking for a save conversion from one system to another one with a completely different architecture and software. It is theoretically possible, but holy hell is it a lot of work. If someone wants to go ahead and do it, great, but I don't see it happening.

    you will have to map every adresse on wii save and every adresses on 3ds save and then convert wii adresse value to 3ds and finaly replace those with this
    so it would need a dictionary of adresses of I would say 100/200 adresses

    Doesnt the 3DS version have some exclusive features? It would take a stupid amount of work to do this, it would be faster for a coder to just start a new game and play up to the point of their wii save

    You wanted to see where I live? You stalker...
    While it's theoretically possible to do something like that, like NEO117 said, it'll take a whole lot of work and a very long time to make. You might as well just keep playing the Wii version.

    I don't see why everyone is dismissing the idea. It's a pretty simple concept:

    1. Make save editor for 3DS game.

    2. Make save editor for Wii game.

    3. Copy+pasta values from one to the other.

    Just automate that process. Wii saves we already have access to, and getting the 3DS save shouldn't be a problem (given there's savedatafiler and the like).

    The real trick is to ensure you've gotten all the important data. And if there's anything unique on either version, you'll need to figure out how to handle that. But I don't see it being any different than converting a pokemon PKM file from an older gen to a newer one (or vice versa). I'm not at all interested in Xenoblade, but I'm certain a fan who knows about save hacking should be able to come up with such a tool.

    Everyone is dismissing because is so much effort for a useless app, there aren´t many wii games on 3ds only xenoblade until i understand, if you are going to play a 3ds port just play it, i don´t see the case of make such a difficult app for only one game

    Yea. I don't really see the point either. And almost certainly it wouldn't work on other Wii->3DS ports. But I'd imagine some fans would enjoy it. I'd imagine it'd kind of be like the Monster Hunter 3, 3DS<->Wii U save compatibility. I'm wondering how many people use such a thing? Either way, it's 100% possible to create a tool. But depending on the game (again, I'm not familiar with Xenoblade), it might be quite a bit of work. Seems more like something that'd pop up way later when some random person decides to make such a thing for the lulz.

    Lots of utilities are made but not used. I don't see why this save converter would be any different.
