    I love using wii u usb helper tool. Just wondering where do I put downloaded save files on my pc in order to use it to inject to the wii u. Is there a guide for doing such things. My son accidently deleted a save file and is devo that he has to start the game again.

    Well was all the pokemon games from all region. I just search pokėmon. I check pack to cia. And than started download. But before i setup extract folder. When finish just said to me download complete have fun.

    Well. A function to pack to .cia that do all without ask me where i want save all the time should be nice.

    Just to you know. Your software its amazing and great as it its. I just wanna make my life easyer :).

    Another thing for people who encounter a crash or error msg when open software.

    I had this problem. But i solved moving my already downloaded game from download folder. Maybe some games listed there will make the software crazy to read all. Maybe corrupted download or something with some games. My crash was with 3ds games. Didnt happen with wii u games.

    Right know the save feature is still at experimental stage and will only allow users to restore saves they backed up with the app.
    I believe uploading it to Mega and sending me the link would be the easiest way.
    Hmm well the Pack to CIA function actually packs all the CIA directly to the specified Extraction directory. It asks you to setup one if you try to toggle the check box before having specified one. Make sure the checkbox is checked before the end of the download otherwise it won't pack the titles.

    Just to keep you informed on 'the other side' or the dark force as many call it :-)

    For Playstation TV just announced by The Flow USB drive support for storage of games instead of expensive Vita memory cards:

    http://wololo.net/2017/03/18/vitashell-1-6-released-usb-storage-support-pstv/

    PS4 is yet to be fully hacked but lots of progress in that scene too. A WiiU USB helper app port to have Vita and PS4 games would be super awesome to see in the future Hikari as that scene has more support by unit sales than WiiU even. I will just post some updates here in the future that might be of importance for you to ever take that step!

    After downloading some games, they don't apppear on the "downloaded" bar even after clicking on "verify" (check the screenshot).

    When looking inside the "ESHOP" folder of USB helper I see they don't have any file inside

    Is it a problem?
    What can I do to USB helper realize I have already downloaded the games?
    Can I move them to SD/USB?

    Thanks for letting me know :)

    If the app lets you "Verify" it means it does recognize it as downloaded. It's possible the list did not update. Does it stay this way even after your restart the app?

    Stupid question but where the hell can I set my Wii U IP to transfer all the stuff to it... The Helper app is open but it still says to "Start it", I thought it'd try to auto-detect it but nope. And I also can't find an option to set the IP anywhere.

    This happens to me too every once in a while, restarting the app often helps like Hikari says or how I do it: when it does not appear at all I just type the name again in search bar, then I can just click copy to sd even if it does not say (fully) downloaded although it actually is.

    Make sure the app is not blocked by your firewall otherwise it won't be able to detect the wiiu.
    Make also sure that you are running the latest version of the transfer tool.

    There's nothing blocked internally. Doing a network scan I can even see my Wii U there.
    But please add an option to insert the IP manually, for cases like mine.

    Gambia, The
    So nice but with a little flaws. Following suggestions:
    - make the sent to wii window/process into a new window so that you can still select titles to download or do other stuff in the wii u helper
    - unfortunately the programm scales with the windows zoom on 100% size everything is cool but everything get cramped together when the zoom is higher :( would be cool if you can override the windows default resizing so that on a 150% resized windows you can still choose 100% for that programm (if you know a tool that would be also cool)
    - also please make the game selection blog list and the to download list movable in heigt so that i can have the download like a 1 liner.
    - also make the big buttons smaller?


    also ultmitate hardcore achievement:
    let us be able to connect the usb-stick from installing to the pc. wii u helper transmits the data to the usb-stick (and the neccessary files to the wii u nand) so that the wii u knows it as installed

    Just a couple of questions, sorry if these were answered but I couldn't find anything. Thank you for your help!

    1. If you've previously purchased a game on the eShop but uninstalled is it safe to install the files downloaded through Wii U USB Helper via Wup Installer instead of redownloading on the eShop? Is this safe to do and does it interfere with anything?
    2. Installing DLC from USB helper unlocks every DLC available for a game right? Let's say you own some but not all DLC for a game legitimately (not currently installed) but install DLC downloaded through Wii U USB helper so all of the DLC for a game is unlocked instead, is this safe to do and does it interfere with anything?
    3. Can you installed a 'vanilla' version of a game on your system memory and a modded version on a USB drive and have them installed simultaneously safely?

    Thank you for your suggestions.
    Regarding the DPI settings maybe you should try to disable automatic scaling on WiiU_USB_Helper.exe (Properties, Compatibility).
    As for installing games directly on the disk I am afraid this won't be possible since we don't really know how the file system works. Plus you'd sill need to install the ticket on your system.

    1.I have never tried this but it is possible that your legit ticket could interfere with the forged one. If the game is not too big maybe just install it directly from the eShop.
    2.Same statement as above, I have read somewhere that installing a fake ticket over a legit one could be problematic. I am sorry but I cannot be more specific since I have never done this myself.
    3.It's normally not possible to have a game on both usb and nand if they have the same titleid.

    Well of course it could be added but I'm more worried about why it does not work. If you have any experience with Wireshark could you see if your wiiu is sending broadcast udp packets on port 14521?
    Thank you very much for your donation.
    According to the log your key was delivered to your gmail address. Please make sure it did not end up in your spam folder. If you cannot find it please let me know so I can send it you again :)

    As an IT admin I think I'll manage that haha :P
    Nah, I'll check later and see if it broadcasts or not.
