When tampering with the game's files, it's a pain having to play from scratch just to reach the part of the game you're interested in. These save files provide either fully completed games, or saves in specific locations or scenarios.

Hey! Pikmin[edit]

Description US Europe Japan Notes
Empty, all areas complete [10] The exit pods were placed in the same spot as the starting locations, meaning that all areas are completed, but without treasures being collected or cutscenes being watched. Bosses were fought normally, and their treasures were also collected normally, though. This save has all X areas unlocked, no amiibo Secret Spots, does not have enough Sparklium to enter sector 9, and has two mandatory updates, because of Sparklium from the bosses.

How to use[edit]

Dolphin[edit]

  • If the memory card is set to a "Memory Card" in Dolphin's settings then:
    1. Open Dolphin.
    2. Go to Tools/Memory Card Manager.
    3. Select the memory card file for Memory Card A. It's likely in <Dolphin's user data directory>/GC/, and has the .raw extension. Remember to pick the right one for the region you're using (USA, EUR, or JAP).
    4. Click on "<-Import GCI" and browse to the .gci file you downloaded.
  • If the memory card is set to "GCI Folder" in Dolphin's settings:
    1. Go to <Dolphin's user data directory>/GC/<region>/Card <A or B>.
    2. Place the .gci file you downloaded in this folder.

  2. Go to Tools/Import Wii Save Game.
  3. Pick the .bin file you downloaded.

Cemu[edit]

  1. Go to <Cemu's installation directory>/mlc01/emulatorSave/<full game ID>.
