Request Ability to read old saved games

    I've noticed that new versions of SMBC typically make existing save files unable to be read. I'm wondering if instead of simply not recognizing old saved game files, if the saved files could instead be read as best as possible (making modifications as required), with a warning to the player that old saved game files may not be exactly matched?

    I think I'll make a converter.
    Of course, we will need to decode the save files first.

    Does anyone have any SWFs of 2.0, 3.0 and/or 3.1? I think they'll be needed.

    Work will start now on a data converter between the only two fully decoded versions, which are 1.0 and 1.1.
    EDIT: Does anyone have a SWF of 1.1 (not 1.1.03)?
    EDIT 2:
    This will eventually allow version conversion.

    EDIT 3: Apparently Jay Is Games still has 2.02.

    Does anyone have a valid SMBC 3.1.2 (not 3.1.21) save file?

    I do, since I never delete my old save files whenever SMB Crossover gets a version update. Here's the save file I was using for the SMB Special levels during 3.1.2 before it was updated to 3.1.21:

    (Strangely, it wouldn't let me just upload this file directly here, saying it doesn't have an allowed extension, so I uploaded it to my SMW Central file bin and linked to that. Why wouldn't it let me upload a .txt file here?)

    The file uploading is meant for uploading images ******************************. You could copy-paste the contents into the post and use code tags:
    [code]contents[/code]
    EDIT: Also for some reason save files have got not only bigger, but also smaller. Here is the number of entries in the save files:

    I wonder what happened?

    Ah, I didn't realize it was meant for only images. And I'll keep the "code" thing in mind if I ever want to upload another SMB Crossover save file.

    Maybe they figured out more efficient ways of storing the information.
