I just got my GW and am wondering how I can convert my Sky3DS saves to GW format to use them.

We now know it is possible after the OOT exploit so there has to be a way.

FYI, this was a bit of a pain in the ass but I finally got my Luigi's Mansion save converted from Sky3DS to Gateway on my N3DS.

A couple weeks worth of scouring the forums for information and here is how I finally did it:
  • Installed NTR 2.1 with the Savegame Manager Plugin
  • Boot into NTR and insert the Sky3DS
  • Press the blue button till you find the game you want to convert
  • Hold L while starting the game and wait for the top screen to flash green twice then hit A to continue booting the game. Luigi's Mansion never loaded for me, but the save got created just fine. I just powered off my console when it got stuck at the startup animation.
  • Shut down the N3DS and boot into Gateway Mode
  • Mount the ROM and create a new savegame if you don't already have one
  • Close the game and power down the N3DS
  • Eject the SD Card and put it in your PC
  • Rename the save from whatever title ID it is to 000400000FF40A00.sav
  • Boot back into Gateway Mode and mount your ROM
  • Launch SaveDataFiler
  • Highlight CTR-Card and press Y then A to export the "dummy" save game we created
  • Close SaveDataFiler and power down the N3DS
  • Eject the SD Card and put it in your PC
  • Copy save_%titleid%/profile1.sav to filer/UserSaveData/DATE/TITLE/profile1.sav
  • Boot back into Gateway Mode and mount your ROM
  • Launch SaveDataFiler
  • Switch over to SD and highlight the title ID
  • Press L + A and then A to import the save to CTR Card
  • Close SaveDataFiler and power down the N3DS
  • Eject the SD Card and put it in your PC
  • Copy 000400000FF40A00.sav to titleID.sav
  • Boot back into Gateway Mode and mount your ROM
  • Profit!
I hope this saves someone the time and effort it took me to make this work. Now I can finally get back to finishing this game!
P.S. if you already know the folder structure for SaveDataFiler you can skip the "dummy" save game creation and copy profile1.sav directly to the proper location and create 000400000FF40A00.sav from an existing save. This will save you a bunch of time.

I also followed those exact same steps to export a Smash retail cart save to a rom, nice to see you've figured it out too!
