    Hi guys, since Wii U USB Helper went down and you cant use it anymore, is there something else like this to replace it?
    EVERYWHERE its all talking about Wii U USB Helper, and I would want to get some games yet it's so hard and rare to find any (or atleast the WUP games, not Loadiine), and the only way is by Wii U USB Helper.
    So is there anything that replaces Wii U USB Helper?
    Thanks. :D

    Wii u usb helper still works with some modifications. They're a reddit post out there that gets it working again. Just tested it a couple days ago when I pulled out my wii u and wanted to install smash for a stream.
    Nvm your question was answered hours ago and my tapatalk just sucks and showed no replies until I replied

    Man, playing with EXE files I dont know where its source is makes me really really REALLY paranoid... I'll go with wolf-snake's proposition instead.
    someday...

    The URL its looking for is an older one that is no longer active. Only hint I can give is it use a .gq (or maybe it's .qg, can't remember) domain. Can't go any more specific than that unfortunately, but hope that helps. Even though the URL is no longer valid, it's required to use that in the text field entry for wii u usb helper and still works with the workaround.

    Last I used funkiiu it wasn't as user friendly. Is it better these days (like just being able to search for a game by name and downloading it)?

    Well I did try the Wii U USB Helper Reddit workaround on a laptop I wasn't using so much and it works. Thanks NoSoul81!

    No, this la a tool to download TICKET files, not the GAME.
    If you're new, I'm not mad at you (not at all).

    Very very new to WiiU, just followed this thread and currently downloading titles while in awe. But I have a question. What if I don't see some titles I like in there (the reddit tutorial's url). Are there any more place/software that offers some more? Thanks!

    Well you can check out other region's stuff, since there is way more stuff in like Japan or Europe than America (goddamn it game companies). However you may have to pass by OurLoader or Spiik (I think it's called Spiik)
    If that's still not enough, there is Homebrew games.
    If that's STILL not enough, just get some other hackable console like the Xbox 360 or PS3 or PS Vita or Original Xbox.
