    NINTENDO 64 Wii to Wii U SAVE FILE CONVERSION

    First, find the type of Save for your games. There are five different ones.

    Save type - EEPROM
    I was trying to transfer my Mario Kart 64 virtual console save from the Wii to WiiU. This program worked! I am so happy that I did not lose progress and can play with the WiiU features. Here are the steps I did:

    **Wii VC to WiiU VC Save files Conversion:**
    *For both Wii and Wii U games, make sure you run the games and then turn the power off while running the game. This avoids creating a savestate, which will overwrite normal saves upon loading.
    *Download SBN64 latest here: https://github.com/DarkMatterCore/sbn64

    1. On WiiU, use "SaveMii Mod" (https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-savemii-wii-u-vwii-savefile-manager.466644/) to extract both Wii and WiiU saves (this creates the correct filenames and paths on SD card)

    2. Put the Wii save and sbn64.exe in the same folder.
    *Below is an example of Mario Kart 64 (Savemii named the Wii save "EEP_NKTE" and the WiiU save "Unkte0.024.sav")

    3. In Windows' CMD prompt, go to the correct directory and run this:
    "sbn64 -i "EEP_NKTE" -o "Unkte0.024.sav" -s wiivc -d wii64"

    It will say:
    Simple Byteswapper for N64 Saves v1.73 - By DarkMatterCore
    Detected save type: EEPROM (128 Kbits).
    Conversion process successfully completed!

    4. Copy "Unkte0.024.sav" back to Wii U's Mario Kart 64 path on the SD card and use SaveMii to import back to Wii U.

    Play the game!

    Save type - SRAM
    Paper Mario did not need conversion, just copy the Wii save to WiiU on your PC and restore using SaveMii.
