Is it possible to use a Ys Origins PC save on the Switch?

I tried to make a backup on the switch, copy the backup on PC and see if the saves were similar and out of of the 5 files 3 were identical (record.tp, record.ta2 and yso_00.bin), I checked them with HxD. Now the PC GOG version has a config.ini and yso_win.ini meanwhile the switch version has a saveEvent and saveOption files.

My guess is that saveEvent is the config.ini because the config.ini has inside EnvPosX=131 and EnvPosY=320 which should be the save statue location, meanwhile the saveOption should be the yso_win.ini because inside that are all the settings: resolution, graphic settings, audio setting, button mapping and more.

Do you think it's possible to somehow make them work?

I'll attach both my saves to see if some of you can help me.

Backup savedata of YS Origins on Switch, rename PC's yso_00.bin to yso_01.bin, copy the renamed file to the backup, restore savedata. It should work just fine. Works for me with PS4 and Vita save. FYI, the game will be crashed when being on the main menu if you just overwritten the yso_00.bin or other files.

didn't work for me. instead of the game crashing on the menu now it crashes when I try to open the save. Somehow it doesn't recognize the location that I'm in. Instead of Demonic Core it says OLD_SAVED_SCENE.

It loads my ps4 and vita savedata that way. I don't have PC save, I won't be sure whether it will load.
