The following article is an excerpt from Ben Callahan’s chapter “Responsive Process,” first published in the eBook version of [Smashing Book 5](https://www.smashingmagazine.com/2016/02/efficient-responsive-design-process/#about-the-book) ([table of contents](https://www.smashingmagazine.com/2016/02/efficient-responsive-design-process/#toc-smb5)).

You will not be disappointed, you know. —Ed._
_“The successful respondent to this RFP will provide three static design options for our team to evaluate.”_ I’ve never been a huge fan of taking a multi-option design approach, but I get it — sometimes a client needs this. _“Each of these options will provide design for three unique layouts: home page, listing page, detail page.”_ All right. Now, we’re up to nine static design files. This is getting a bit out of hand.

Save game backup/restore on 5.02 -> BOTW WiiU conversion? | GBAtemp.net - The Independent Video Game Community
Here is how I did it:

I have a hacked WiiU, and I am afraid if your WiiU isn't hacked you are going to have to go find that info somewhere else. I followed this guide for backing up my WiiU save game (using SaveMii) and converting it to Switch format on my PC.
I followed this tutorial for installing Homebrew menu on my 5.02 Switch. This guide also includes a super simple way to 'short' the two pins on the right joycon with a piece of tinfoil. EVERYTHING you need is mentioned on there except...
When adding the homebrew menu onto my Switch SDCard I also added Checkpoint - for backing up and restoring save games. (the Checkpoint.nro should be located in \switch\Checkpoint\ on your SD Card)
I booted my Switch into the RCM menu (following guide in 2 above). I loaded Checkpoint and BACKED UP my Switch save game for Zelda BOTW. This is just so it made a folder on my SDcard with the right name etc.
I shutdown my Switch and put the SDCard into my PC. I then made a copy of my Switch save game (for safe keeping) and copied the WiiU converted save (made in part 1) into the folder made by Checkpoint. (for me this was located at \switch\Checkpoint\saves\0xLONGGAMENUMBER The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild\ANOTHERSET-OFNUMBERS myswitchusername\ on my SD Card...)
I then put the SDCard back in my Switch, booted into RCM again, and RESTORED the WiiU converted save.
I rebooted my Switch into normal mode and HEY PRESTO - it all works.

I think that should be everything.
