How to inject it? don't know how the save look like or what is the folder name is still 80000001?

EDIT:

Figured it out. As you might think... the DLC doesn't carry over the Switch version... you just lose that and have to buy it again.

Hi,

great! :)

But I need help, please.

I have savegames on Cemu. Now I will move this savegames to my switch. How should I proceed?

1) Convert the savegames with first github-link

= OK

2) start the injection, boot into atmosphere, and use checkpoint to inject the saves:
(second github-link)

= HELP...

Can you tell me the details?
Which files I must copy to the sdcard?
How I boot into atmosphere and how I inject the saves?

Thanks! :)

Best


edit: it has been solved :)

you just choose the savegame for botw and "restore" it

how though?
what do i need to put on the sd card and where do i need to put it?
i was under the impression that the after conversion i would end up with only one .sav file
so do i just copy over the whole folder with all of those subfolders and files that are pictured in the OP?
or am i supposed to only have one file here?
it it would have helped if the re was pic of what the file/s/folders are supposed to look like after they are converted
so go to checkpoint and then what? it is going to know where to find all of that? do i need to navigate to secifc folder/file?

Jaysus! I spent hours trying to use that other BOTW save converter + Yallarenuts. My only results were corrupted files. Then I found this + Checkpoint, and everything went smoothly! I got my save on my Switch, and everything! Thanks! :D

what people is trying to say is that you miss a step

after convert backup you need to put it in switch SD
so people are asking where to put file...

and to answer to this question :
- copy nro file in switch/Checkpoint/
- put back your SD inside the switch if you removed it
- launch your favorite CFW
- launch the Checkpoint
- make a backup of the game (maybe you need to start a game for that)

at this point Checkpoint will create all the folders for all your game in switch/Checkpoint/saves
and a sub-folder for your backup

so now, you can know where to put your files...

I keep trying to use this tool, but the saves don't convert.

Using the GUI version, it identified my cemu save as a 1.4 version save. Weird because my game + updates show im on 1.5.0, v208.

I tried re-saving then rechecking to see if they update would change it, but no dice. I also tried starting a brand new save to see what version it would show me, and once again it was detected as 1.4.0.

I'm going to try a complete clean reinstall and see whatsup.

EDIT: Reinstalled folder, works perfect.

A mod was breaking my update compatibility.

Neat. If i do this as my only action through homebrew on the switch, do i risk getting banned? Will the act of installing custom savedata modify any files (through libnx) or trigger anything(os config files) currently known to cause a ban?

This is absolutely fantastic.
I was able to transfer my BOTW 1.5 with DLC save files from my wiiu to my switch successfully on 5.0.2. We are living in the golden age!

Hi. I just found out we can transfer save file from wii u to switch. I did it, but I'm confused why the save file progress that was copied is only up until before the DLC was installed on the WiiU.

I've completed the DLC on WiiU, but when I copied the save files from Wiiu and convert it to Switch version, I can't find the save file that also contains the progress from the DLC. could you perhaps explain what you did, so I can also copy the progress from the DLC too?

I copied from this directory in Wiiu:
/storage_mlc/usr/save/00050000/101c9400
but it doesn't contain any progress at all from the DLC. only the progress up until before the DLC was installed.

or could perhaps anyone help me with this?

thanks in advance!

UPDATE:

Nevermind. I copied the save file from a wrong user id. my bad. but thanks again for everyone in this thread. you're all very helpful!

Could you please share your file structure. Checkpoint deosnt recognice mine x_x
Never mind, it worked. You had to do a backup with chekcpoint first in order to have the directories. Also, my WiiU save file with all the progess on the DLCs was transfered perfectly to the switch. Now I can get the motorcycle while Im traveling :D

Thanks to the TC too.

Wish I could do the same with my Hyrule Warrios and my DK save files, specially HW though :(
