    Hi people on the scene!

    I would like to change my user profie number... i have two accounts and they are "800003" and "800004", instead of "800001" and "800002".

    I think it's a bad idea to do a factory reset, since I have lots of personal configurations, including all you can think of!

    I can ftp my wiiu using ftpiiu everywhere...
    Is there any configuration file I can edit?
    Will it cause any issue after that??

    Thanks

    Gambia, The
    Why do you want to change the number?
    The numbers DO NOT reset on a factory reset

    There really isn't any reason to do that.

    I know it's just a detail.
    I would like to have a single user, and I will delete the other one soon.
    As I use lots of time game save injection, I don't like to see 800003 instead of the default 800001.

    Justo for curiosity, I had the same situation on my PS3, and after a full HDD format it changed back to 1!.

    Do you think if I create some dummy users, the number increase until 800009 and then back to 800001?!
    How many users it is possible to create? Maybe the number will go until "80000f"! Or "8fffff" !!

    it will keep going up, it won't go back to 8000001 and reset.

    do you have a NNID account? did you buy a haxchi game with the 800003 ?

    THhanks for your nterest jbuck.
    Yes, my NNID is associated with 800003 and yes I bought my brain training with 800003.
    Is there any possibility to to go back to 1?
    Even if I need to reinstal the game...
    You're right, I tested, it's increasing. I created some users. now it's on 80000a =(
