Forum:Saving data

Alright, I've been off the wiki for quite some time, and I'm slowly getting into shape to help improve the wiki.

Alright, I'm getting off topic…

Anyways, I made this forum because I am curious about the subject of saving data from SSBB. My Wii is "dying", and I recently got the 2GB SD card required to save data, but I can only figure out how to save maps, photos, and videos. I was hoping that someone could help me find out how to keep my progress in the Subspace Emissary, characters, and trophies, if it is possible. Can someone please help? Thanks.

Like many of the Wii's online-enabled games, Brawl data cannot be copied or backed up without hacking. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Interspacial 12:43, 28 October 2012 (EDT)

Have you tried contacting Nintendo's customer service? It doesn't hurt to ask them if there's a solution. Mr. AnonAnon.pngtalk 12:54, 28 October 2012 (EDT)
The answer is most likely a no. Hacking the system is still possible, though. If you're planning on getting a new wii, which it sounds like, it is conceivable that you could buy a new wii, void the warranty by cracking it open and just replacing the hard drive one-for-one. That would be complicated, but in theory it is possible, if you don't mind voiding your warranty, and assuming the hard drive itself isn't the problem. Semicolon (talk) 13:14, 28 October 2012 (EDT)
