Try using JKSV

SX save manager only works on SX OS and not in atmosphere. Checkpoint is kind of obsolete at this point

Okay thank you for that I'll start using the newer one in atmosphere however when I use SX OS it opens up and then closes. Is it looking for some connection or authentication since it seems the website is down. For SX OS is there any way around that like a DNS redirect or patch for first time load because I can easily once it's loaded restore all the saves and then back them up on the other newer save backup provided in SD builder with atmosphere

You can use checkpoint or JSKV on SX-OS to get your save backups and then restore them using JSKV or the Checkpoint 3.7.5 forked version (with title redirection, pressing R while launching any app, not from the album) on Atmosphere.

No need to use SX save manager at all.

To be honest even when I was using SX-OS I had never used SX-Save Manager, I was always using Checkpoint...
So I'm not familiar with the way SX-Save Manager works, but if I had to guess I would say that it should be working in a similar fashion to the others. The save files should be the same, unless sx converts them in some way, which I hope is not the case...

You can use checkpoint once on your new sd card with atmosphere, so that it will create directories (sd:/switch/checkpoint/saves) for the games than you have installed/played, and then copy-paste the save files from your pc backup to the corresponding checkpoint folder for each game, and then try restoring them through checkpoint. I'd say it's worth a try.

Thanks I'll give it a try and post the results I'll also be checking file structure between both sets to see if there is any difference and even post samples if I see a difference so maybe someone out there can analyze it maybe we can come up with a converter.

Don't know if any developer is willing to support any SX-related tools.

    I wonder...how would the gaming scene have changed had the Wii (and its bullshit motion controls and criminally neglected Classic Controller) failed?

    Microsoft certainly wouldn't have experimented with the Kinect, that's for sure. Would Nintendo have released something like the Wii U early?
    Gift
  • AkiraKurusu @ AkiraKurusu:
    That would've had a different name, so as not to tie it to its failed predecessor (something the Wii U dearly wished it has gotten anyway).

  • Veho @ Veho:
    PlayStation 2 already had that EyeToy thing before the Wii, and a whole lot of games supported it. Microsoft would have had something like the Kinect even if the Wii failed.
