    Not sure if this has been reported, but I downloaded and tried to install "Just Dance 2018" twice and both times got " Installation Failed Confirm complete WUP files are in the folder" when I tried to install on wii u using WUP Installer GX2.

    WUP Installer GX2 does not like special symbols in the folder name. Delete the tm or R symbols in the folder name and you'll be golden.

    I only found out about program this yesterday.
    I am having about 50% success rate of these games I am installing working.
    The ones that don't work install correctly, but when I try and play them they freeze the game during the cut scenes, usually near the end.

    Any way of getting around this ?

    Thanks

    Well, it looks like the college I go to is blocking wiiuusbhelper.com, which I assume the app attempts to connect to on startup. Is there any important functionality tied to connecting to that site before the app launches?...

    Seagate Desktop 2tb, it was one that was recommend for the wii u.

    I had bought several games from the e-store before I hacked the wiiu and they all play ok.

    Both Wii U USB Helper and your Wii U check the integrity of the files before installing so the possibility of a corrupt download is quite small.
    Can you try installing one of these games on NAND and see if the issue persists?

    Unfortunately yes this site and its subdomains are absolutely essential to the app since that's where all the metadata and such is stored. However, the Upater also connects to this domain so if it works it means it's not blocked. Have you set a proxy in Windows? I had someone with a similar issue recently and it was because some kind of malware had set a proxy.

    I had no proxy initially, but I did attempt to mess around with a few proxies in an attempt to connect. Never got it working, unfortunately. Even just trying to go to the website on my browser won't work, it times out

    Edit: it works on my android phone, but ONLY if I have a VPN set, which is restricted by the college on Windows devices I believe. I'll do what I can to keep messing around with this, though.

    Also, is it possible to hook my phone up to my computer, use the Android version, and set a directory on my computer as the destination folder?

    Most likely they just block the dns resolution.
    Try running this script (as admin) and it will manually resolve the domains to hopefully bypass the restriction.

    One of the games I am having trouble with is PAPER MARIO Color Splash [000500001F600B00], I remove it completely from the wii u and rebooted, I then installed it on the nand, had the same problem, it stopped exactly the same place as when it was installed on the USB.

    So I uninstalled it again, I then re-downloaded the game again and then reinstalled it, but it is still stopping exactly the same place.

    I understand my question is about 3DS games but this appears to be the only thread for Wii U USB Helper. Is Pokemon Ultra Sun, Moon; Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga + Bowsers Minions or Metriod Samus Returns known to work after downloading with USB Helper and a New 3ds XL with the newest Luma 8.1.1, godmode9, FBI installer?

    You'd have to pack it into a CIA, but it should

    Hi guys, I did a quick search on this thread and couldnt find the answer.

    I want to ask, how to I install mods for Smash 4 using Wii USB Helper?

    This is the mod im trying to install. (Hitbox Visualization / Training Modpack v3)

    I am just trying to install the packed version of this mod.

    Can anyone point me to the right direction on how to do so?


    Thanks!

    Does anybody know if it's possible to get gamecube cheats converted from AR to OCARINA (obviously) to work on my Wii U? I've got sonic adventure 2 injected on my wii u homescreen. I've tried uisng mocha sd and tcp gecko sd. I put the gctu file in the codes folder thats on the root of my SD card. I'm not sure how nintendont runs cheats or from what folder but I can't get it to work. Does anybody know if this is possible?

    Somewhere, out there...
    Hi guys. How do I properly delete games, updates, and dlc that was from Wii U USB Helper? I deleted Zelda BOTW, update, and DLC. But it seems that USB HDD space was not restored? I deleted through the Data Manager in Wii U System Settings. Deleted BOTW because game kept freezing when loading save, someone suggested to delete everything related to game and re-install. Also, I am wanting to use Trainer for Zelda BOTW. The Trainer/Editor I wanted to use is for game version 1.3.0. When I install game and update, can I just delete the update if it is not 1.3.0 and just install another update that will hopefully be 1.3.0? Thoughts and help GREATLY appreciated on all of this :)
