Molokai presents his backup converter to Wii64. This allows you to use your backups N64 with Wii64
OK, so while I was trying to test some bug EmulateMii for the team, I needed a completed save file. However, I did not want to go through the trouble of manually swapping the whole endian 97KB completed save file (for Majora's Mask), so I wrote my own save converter. After extensive debugging, it should work with any 32-bit Windows installation now (64-bit is as yet untested). I do not have it set up for either Mac or linux (and mac is not likely, since I can not test it, and some of the commands I use are platform specific), but if anyone wants to convert the code for themselves, by all means, I'll upload the source for you (it's really not all that fancy, so I do not really care).
Just to let you guys know, as far as I know, only. Fla and. Sra files need to be converted (. Eep might need some garbage data at the end, but I have not tested that yet. If it does, I 'll add that into my converter and make another release.. eep's do not need to be endian swapped, however). And this only takes those files, as well as certain file sizes.
This converter is strictly drag and drop, but it can take a dropped file from anywhere to convert it, and preserves the original save while saving the converted one in the Wii64 Saves subfolder.
Also, if your converted save does not work, make sure it's got a (U) / (E), etc., on the end of it (or, to make it easy, look at what makes Wii64 have the save file name and copy that).
Let me know what you guys think (and team EmulateMii, I hope I'm not overstepping my bounds by releasing this).
And I'm sure, once EmulateMii release the beta 2 with their converter, mine will become obsolete ... But since we do not know when that will happen, until then, enjoy mine!
