    Convert PC Saves to Switch (vice versa)

    I accidentally stumbled unto this, and it's relatively easy to do, so I figured with the lack of public knowledge on how to do this that I'd provide a simple instructional step by step tutorial on how to Convert your own Stardew Valley save between versions.

    Requirements
    * A Nintendo Switch
    * An SD Card
    * Any CFW (SX OS/ReiNX/Atosphere/etc)
    * Any Save Managing Tool (Checkpoint/Y'allAreNuts/Edizon/etc)
    *
    A PC/Mac/Linux Device
    * A SD Card Reader, or an FTP Client Solution like FileZilla
    * Time at least 1 minute of it

    Actual Tutorial (..Finally!!!..)

    PC > Switch

    Switch > PC

    Thats exactly what I needed! But will it have problems regarding the version of the game? I played with friends in the latest beta and wanted to have the world in my 4.10 switch, is that possible?

    So can we transfer the pc save onto the switch? To likely change the UI size

    I'm currently running Stardew Valley 1.2.33, so I wouldn't know exactly, so I'd recommend giving it at least a try, worst thing I could see hapening is it either reject the world which would, suck, or crash the game as it try's to load a shack that isn't in the game yet, but these both would only suck untill they update the Switch Version, which would make your save compatibility if it isn't already.

    When I tested my PC save on my Switch it looked just as it should on the Switch unfortunately, so I think they automatically change the Zoom size depending on the consoles state like between Docked, and Portable

    I know this thread is kinda dead, but can anyone help? I transfer my pc save to switch using checkpoint and the name is correct when i go to load the save, but the time says 0:00 and the gold says 500, and the game freezes on the loading screen with controls when I try to load the save.

    Also, If someone plays the beta version of the game on PC, I wouldn't recommend transferring the save file to your Switch just yet...

    I used yallarenuts to put my pc save onto the switch. I can confirm that it works and I was able to play my pc save on the switch version of the game.

    Do you know if a transfer PS4->Switch would work as well?

    I don't know but it's worth a try. If the saves are the same between the switch and the pc version I'd say there is a chance the ps4 version has the same file structure as well.

    I would assume it does, according to a friend of mine, they tried Vita -> PC and vice versa (not on the 1.3 beta, mind you, 1.2x) and they said it worked fine both ways. If you're on the PC beta 1.3 though, it could be a problem.

    I've edited the post to now include a full breakdown tutorial of the steps required for transferring saves between PC, and the Switch via Checkpoint, and Edison..

    for those new to the scene, or those who just bought Stardew Valley on the Switch/PC looking to move their save from their PC/Vice Versa... enjoy

    I actually got PC saves to transfer to ps4 so I was thinking that this would be possible as well! Glad someone did it before I stopped procrastinating.

    Just what I needed! Starting all over on PC was making me a bit sad after the time spent farming on Switch. Thank you @Proto-Propski
