    My request is for something like Nintendont that works in Wii U mode (and thus with Gamepad support, no gamepad is my biggest peeve with vWii). Also something that allows me to load my ripped Wii games directly from Wii U mode and use the Gamepad as either a GC controller or a Classic Controller.

    EDIT: Also a homebrew port of SimCity 3000/4 for the Wii U.

    Wherever there's food. And Nintendo.
    Nintendo already created a system which uses the Gamepad controls instead of Classic Controller. And none of us are game developers. We don't have the ability, willingness, or time to create a port of a game, especially SIMCity.

    How about a homebrew for the Gamepad camera? This feature is only used in so little games. Maybe some sort of photobooth/webcamtoy and you can save taken pictures on the sd card?

    afaik vWii isn't as fast CPU-wise as the Wii U. Also, the Wii U has more RAM than vWii (1 GB iirc, don't know about the Wii though). Therefore, it's perfectly reasonable to assume that PSX (maybe even PS2) emulation is possible on the Wii U.

    As for the N64, thankfully Virtual Console ROM injection is far more compatible than both Wii's VC and Wii64. Still, there's some trouble spots (SM64 and Zelda mods for example) so maybe someone can do something, but I really don't see a N64 emulator coming out for the Wii U anytime soon.

    A homebrew that turns on the gamepad sensor bar regardless if a Wii game will be played on TV or gamepad.

    The ability to connect a second Wii U gamepad. Nintendo says it was possible, but it was never an activated feature. Granted to justify the activation of this feature, I need to have a good use for it and the only good use is an idea I've floated by a few times but I'll do it again, homebrew like the little known GB4GB on the Wii. This was an emulator that emulated up to 4 instances of GBs/GBCs at the same time, the first 2 instances could link up and second 2 instances could also link up. It was a pretty neat little homebrew that went by pretty much unnoticed. What I propose is a GBA emulator that could emulated up to 3 GBA/GBC/GBs at the same time where each screen gets its on emulator, a GBA on your TV and up to 2 GBAs emulated on up to 2 Wii U gamepads and then allow them to all connect to each other, as the GBA had some fantastic up to 4 player multiplayer experiences that are going underutilized in this day and age, it would be neat if we could bring that back.

    Hell, even if getting a second gamepad connected could never happen, just getting up to 2 GBAs emulated at the same time one on the TV, one on the gamepad that could link up would be really neat.

    Use gyro controls from the Switch Controller instead of the Gamepad. It would be great for games that require aiming, with a better portability and battery life of the controller.

    I dream of Moonlight being ported to wii u.

    http://moonlight-stream.com

    It would turn the gamepad into an nvidia shield basically.

    Afaik, DVD Player is not possible because the Wii U uses a special Lens which can not read DVDs. And there is a N64 Emulator for vWii, which you can inject into the Wii U.

    While you can inject the N64 emulator through Wii VC, it would be ideal to have proper N64 and PSX emulators for the Wii U, hopefully as cores through RetroArch.
