    There's a bug with the WiiU>Switch save converter which means that the Heroes Quest data is broken. I'm looking to fix it, but in order to do so I'm going to need as many copies of "Working" Switch save data as possible to analyse.

    Unfortunately, this data is also broken in a number of the easily obtained "100%" save files that are usually shared online.

    All we're looking for is the "Tracker" folder from Switch checkpoint saves. If you can upload yours in this thread we'd be greatly thankful.

    this is entirely useless if what you need is the data from 100% completed files, but here you go

    How do I get the tracker folder?
    My Switch is not running homebrew or CFW.

    Thank you everyone! It doesn't need to be 100% complete, in fact, a mix of different amounts of progression will be more useful.

    Don't worry about it. The only way to get your save data into a useable format is via homebrew so if you've not already ran Checkpoint it's not the end of the world, we've had a lot of contributers already in this thread. :)

    i heard about this bug before , but i don't even know what heroes quest is
    and how to tell if it is broken , i used the WII U > switch save converter
    my sav seem fine though so how do i tell if my sav was affected?
    i had all of the map unlocked and 3 divine beasts before i converted and transferred the sav
    EDIT: ok i see now that it is a DLC feature right?
    i never used any DLC on the wii u version nor the switch version
    so what if i were to add the DLC on the switch version ?
    will i get my heroes path to work? does the bug only occur if you had the DLC on the wuu i and then converted the sav
    or will it not even work at all if you did not have the dlc on the wii u to begin with?

    The Heroes Path data was always recorded, even before the DLC was released. Yours will likely have been corrupted when you converted your save, but it will probably have started a new one that is slowly over-writing the broken one.

    Out of interest, have you played/saved BOTW (normal mode, not master mode) since the v1.5 update? I'm trying to work out why something in your header data is different from everyone else's.

    Thank you!

    No I have not lol. BOTW I played for about ~100 hours during the week or two after the switch launched and I do not recall playing since. I guess I should pick it up again sometime soon, as you can see I haven't yet finished. Do you need Wii U dumps as well? As I also have BOTW for Wii U

    Edit: if it would make it more convenient I can update and then dump the file again.
    Edit Again: I apologise I didnt read your question thoroughly at first. Once I switched it to master mode I never tried to switch back to normal, so no I would say almost certainly not (as best as I can recall).

    Here's mine from a playthrough that got nearly all if not all of the korok seeds by the time I made this backup.
