    I'm pretty sure this can't be done, but you guys are far smarter than me.

    I have Skylanders Swap Force on the Wii and I can extract the save game using savegame manager gx.

    I also have Skylanders Swap Force on the Wii U (loadiine) and wondered if I can convert the Wii save of the game and inject to Wii U using saviine?

    I know I can just play on the vWii, but would like to play it on the Wii U.

    Possible?

    I Know its not interchangeable, different format (I think I read that somewhere in here). I just wondered if some clever person had figured out how to convert one to the other or if that's even possible.

    you'll have to analyze the files and format to know if it's possible.
    each games are creating their own savegame format, some games could work while others won't.
    maybe the WiiU or the Wii used specific headers added to the savegame data, so you'll have to understand it and replace it if needed, etc.
