Topic: Transfer wii u savegames back to wii

Hi guys ,

I' m really not satisfied with the bad image quality of the Wii mode on Wii U.
In general it really sucks compared to the good image quality (for it' s limited resolution) I had on my Wii with an additionally bought RGB-Cabel (Cinch-connections) from Mad Cats...

Before I always thought the image quality for Wii games should stay at least the same and should get even a bit better through the connection via an hdmi-cable to my Flat LCD-Display on WII U- but the definite opposite was the case .

Till now I just played on the WII U hardly accepting it - but I really can' t stand this bad image quality anymore ...

So now that I still own my old Wii I would really like to get my save games back on it, so that I could at least get my good image quality back I had before beeing able to continue playing without having to restart the games from their very beginning...

Do you guys know how I can handle that? As far as I know it' s not that easy right? The other way around from WII to WII U is no problem via the transfer function, but from WII U TO WII?

Can you help me with that issue? It would be really great!

I don't think that is possible but I'm not 100% sure

What a beautiful signature.

You can transfer some save files to the SD card and then move them to a different system, but it varies from game to game.

Just go to the Wii options menu.

This is how I moved some save files from my family's old Wii to my Wii U (I couldn't do a full transfer since the system was shared). Just be warned that some games that use online functions (like what I ran into with Guitar Hero) can't have their saves moved/copied to the SD card.

Hi Meowpheel and Tyranexx ,

thank you very much for your fast answers .

I was also guessing that it might work that way - but sincerly I don' t think it' s that easy for downward compatibility to wii - Anyway I' ll give it a try this evening and will refer about it if it works later on .

The game I' m playing at the moment is Zelda: Skyward Sword

It's less about "downward compatibility", and more a normal function of the Wii. Since the WiiU's Wii mode is more or less like using a normal Wii.

You should be able to share the save files of games that allow it between multiple systems.

Hi Guys -

yes you are right about what you said - anyway it is quite annoying to get the gamesaves from Wii U back to Wii, but after several tries I made it yesterday - for all guys who wanna do the same here an explenation about what you should care in this case:

Before I will start with the explenation; I have to correct myself I' m using a Component cable from MadCatz with an HDTV-Option - not an RGB cable - and the colors and the image quality is really (at least as possible for the limited Wii resolution) better; The Sharpness might be about the same or a bit less than with an HDMI-cable on Wii U in Wii mode - wich is also better because you are not getting this crazy aliasing (flickering) on each border of everything - but the colors and the overall image quality is definetly better than with the Wii U hdmi Cable on my Toshiba Full HD screen.

> On a normal way you can only get the Gamesaves from Wii U back to Wii using an old SD-Card. SD-HC and SD-XC are not supported - I first tried it with them - but they are not supported nor for Wii Mode on Wii U neither for Wii. I don' t know the size limit for SD cards but I used a small 2 GB SD card and it worked fine.

> Only certain games save data support the feature to copy or move themselves to an SD-card - like you said before - for me unluckily only slightly more than the half of the save games supported this feature - luckily Zelda: Skyward Sword and Twighlight Princess and the most Nintendo own games where supported...

Here a step by step manual on what to do:
1. Insert the SD card into Wii U before starting the system
2. Go into Wii mode on Wii U and copy or move the internally stored save games that are supported to SD card
3. Shut off Wii U and take out the SD card - insert it into Wii
4. !!COPY or move the game saves to the internal storage of the Wii!! -->Leaving the save games on the SD-Card the games running on Wii will not recognize them at all and the Wii will behave like there wouldn' t be any savegames on the system

Thank you for your advices Meowpheel, but I had to find out by my own that the Wii mode of the Wii U behaves exactly like the Wii itsself, because I read your reply only now.

Thank you for your help - I hope I can help other guys having the same (probably unusual issue) with that post.

No problem! I'm glad you seemed to get everything taken care of.

Also, enjoy Skyward Sword. It's a very fun (albeit not without flaws) game, but I really had fun with it.

I know its old but maybe someone of you guys still replys to me. I want to do the same as you did but I dont understand what you mean with the 4th point in your explenation. So when I transfer for example Mario Kart Wii from the Wii U to my SD card and the put it in into the Wii. Should I copy the file into the internal Wii storage and the put the SD card out of the Wii or what?

Hope someone can still help me with this. It would great

@LordOx Once you've copied the save file to the Wii's internal storage it shouldn't matter whether the SD is in or not. Why don't you just try it and see.

Nothing is true. Everything is permitted.
