    NTSC save to PAL? Super Paper Mario

    I've played Super Paper Mario on my friends Wii, and now when I got my own Wii, I would like to keep on playing on my save.

    I copied the save on his Wii to a SD-card, and then tried to move it to my own. That didn't work. The Wii tell me that I have to play the game on my Wii first.

    I then noticed that his save is in NTSC, and my own save is in PAL.
    R8PE vs. R8PP

    I guess this is why it doesn't work.

    Can someone please help me to convert the save from NTSC to PAL?

    Yeah I know the game must be played. That what I did first, but when that didn't worked, I checked the save in a computer, and then I saw that the name differed.

    I also tried the folder name R8PE to R8PP, but that also didn't work.

    I guess also the file need some editing, but I have no idea how to do that.

    davepm wrote up a guide on just this sort of thing for a different mario game here: http://www.wiihacks.com/wii-games/29...save-ntsc.html

    Apply the same process, just reverse the PAL/NTSC-U order, and should work out.

    But what about the Savegame Manager? There is no .exe. How do I use it?

    It's a homebrew app - extract it to sd card and load through hbc.

    Ok. Well. ON the SD I have the save I got from my friends NTSC wii, without any app, just transfered with a normal wii.

    \private\wii\title\R8PE\data.bin

    Is that enough, or do I have to redo the process with this app on his Wii instead?

    The editing is done on your pc via hex-editing. Savegame Manager is just for extracting the save to put on your computer. All the info you need is on that page, but you're going to have to put some work in this yourself. Give it a go and if it works, it works. If not, enjoy the replay.

    Yeah of course am I gonna put some work in it myself.

    But, at the moment I only have the save from the NTSC Wii transfered WITHOUT the Savegame Manager. Saved as a .bin.

    Do I have to go to my friend again, with my SD card and Savegame Manager and "redownload" the NTSC save again?

    EDIT: Sorry. From the read me

    This application allows you to extract/install savegames on your Wii. (data.bin files not supported). It allows savegames to be copied from the Wii to an SD card, including savegames that cannot normally be copied from the system menu. It is a combination of the two apps Savegame Extractor and Savegame Installer

    So long as what you have is a bin file I think it'll work, but don't know for sure. Make a backup copy just in case, if it doesn't work out yeah you might have to grab it again from your mate.
