I've played al lot on Skyrim SE and there is my main save. Now i want to play on Skyrim Original cause of the better mod compatibility. Is there a way to transfer my save/s from SKyrim SE to Skyrim Original? I know that there is a way to transfer them from Skyrim Original to SE. I saw it on a german forum. But i need the other way. Any normal way or a tool that could help?

Thanks for any help.

From what i understand about transferring saves between the two it's not very likely if not downright impossible because Oldrim doesn't have the capability of handling a save from a 64 bit game.


Here's a good example of this....


Think of it like Cadillac's old V8-6-4 engines (you might not be old enough to remember these) - the engine was an 8 cylinder engine, but when highway cruising or doing low-load driving, it could shut off 2 or 4 of the cylinders on the engine to greatly improve gas mileage. Skyrim SE is that 8 cylinder engine, and your old saves only need 4 of those cylinders (low resource load).
But no matter how much you want to pull the load, your 4 cylinder Skyrim just doesn't have the horsepower and traction to pull that Skyrim SE heavy load needing all 8 cylinders.
Or think of it this way - It's just like they can make PS3 games playable on a PS4, but you'll not find a PS4 game playable on the PS3...
