    yeah it seems to work well.

    I'll see how many versions of fw.img are there and list on the tutorial so people can test their game compatibility.

    EDIT: It seems all games use the exact same fw.img only each one has some weird encryption in some parts that I didn't figure out.

    Just tried this with Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn using Rhythm Heaven Fever, and the .app files are too big to fit on a FAT32 SD card... Did I do something wrong, or is there some way to get these to install?

    No, but knowing Nintendo, compatibility won't be superb.

    So, can we launch homebrew via in-game exploits like IndianaPWNs or other exploits with gamepad control?

    I will probably give this a try since save exploits do not require editing the iso and thus should work with no sigcheck patches.

    Do Syscheck and DopMii run through Wii VC?

    @piratesephiroth great guide but your contradicting yourself at the beginning a little, your saying this> Requirements: The extracted contents of a Wii VC title for the Wii U (except the .nfs files); then your saying this> 2. nfs2iso2nfs: The content folder should contain only the nfs files and the "assets" folder.

    Which is it? are you saying you should delete the original .nfs files from the wiiu extraction before you convert with nfs2iso2nfs and then the new conversion from nfs2iso2nfs creates newer .nfs files for nuspacker?

    Syscheck displays something on the screen then reboots the wii (I'll have to see if i can grab what it says before) and dopmii just shows the name of the app in a red banner on the top of the screen and freezes..

    Interesting, so they do boot, but I assume what happens is an issue with trucha or missing cIOS, as stated before.
    It'd be nice to see what comes from this.
    BTW how big is the fw.img?

    the folder should contain only nfs files AFTER you're done converting the iso.
    I think I should specify that there should be no nfs files BEFORE the conversion.

    Ok so.. I managed to get a shot of syscheck before it reboots, I'll write what it says:

    Code:
    Region: unknown
    The System Menu v610 is running under IOS255 (rev 65535)
    Hollywood v0x0
    Console ID: (my console id)
    BootZ v0
    
    Getting number of titles..... Found 88 titles.
    Getting list of titles...
    
    Found 32 IOS and 0 IOS Stubs on this console.
    
    Initialising the FAT file System....
    Unable to initialise the FAT file System!
    Thats exactly what it says (except the ConsoleID part of course)

    My fw.bin is 1.70mb and is from the DKCR VC

    Oh dang. Ios 255 is rather interesting.

    Either Systemcheck gets it wrong, or Wii VCs use it.
