    I'm too lazy to use Loadiine or the Brazilian ticket trick because it's easier and faster to shove a disc in my console hahahah.

    I'm still using Loadiine, but for patched content (Tokyo Mirage Session), Virtual Console, and out of region games (Puyo Tetris), but I did transfer all my save games from both disc games and loadiine games to the "pirated" digital versions.

    Too lazy to self host, my internet sometimes goes down because Australia is a 3rd world country and its easier to just boot my Wii U and tap the games. Plus loadtimes are better, better compatibility with certain games etc

    Loadiine is useful if you are lazy as all games are easily found in that format and it's region free.

    It's also very useful for mods and unofficial programs like compiled Unity engine.

    No more loadiine for me. I deleted all of my Loadiine ready backups, as well as my downloaded WUDs/Ready2Play files. I now have over 23 games installed, Downloading more, and the ONLY issue that I have is that my external HHD is a TOSHIBA MQ01ABD050 500GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache drive and I am using a USB2.0 interface and my games occasionally lag. For example Smash Bros' initial video gets stuck every 2 seconds, and it is horrible to watch. But that is an issue with my HW, and not the Hack/Wii u directly. But Good Bye Loadiine!!

    There really is no worries, just make sure that you install your same region, and there are no issues. Go for it, just download the TIKs from THAT iso site, and use NUS to download the files directly from the Nintendo servers, add the TIK and put it in a "Install" folder and launch the installer and your are set :)

    I never used Loadiine. What Dimok managed to do inside of Mii Maker was nothing short of amazing, and it was a wonderful PoC, but so many games had problems, even if it was a few extra seconds of loading here and there. It really adds up and detracts from the experience, and games are all about the experience so it just wasn't worth it to me

    Why do you want to know?
    I'm not afraid to do things, since I'm capable of following instructions- I'm still using Loadiine though because I need to wait until I can get an HDD to store my games on, right now I'm just using Loadiine for VC games (cause they can fit on a SD card)

    I don't. Not even because of Online or easy access but man Loadiine loads stuff super slow. Besides that manual for Paper Mario has been pretty useful for me.

    Sure do! It works great for VC injects and the games that don't have tik dumps (eg New Super Luigi U standalone or Shovel Knight)

    I only use loadiine because of my Kirby : Shattered Crystal N64 VC and Paper Mario Color Splash
    If i would have those 2 games to be able to install in USB way and be able to play out of region games i would have stopped used loadiine

    I'm still using Loadiine. I'm not jumping the gun every time a new feature is released. Let's wait for the CFW so we possibly don't have to modify anything or install from SD card.

    Honestly, there are no games I play on Loadiine that I do not already own. Ok, maybe one or two eShop games. I use Loadiine for the ease of not having to switch discs. Spending a bunch of hours to redo this onto a hard drive, and then possibly redoing it again once the rednand is released, is just not worth it in the end. I'll wait a few weeks and see what people are using then.

    I can make a little list of advantages/disadvantages of both:

    Loadiine advantages: Region free, mods are available, VC injections
    Loadiine disadvantages: Load times aren't always as good, requires SD card which cost more than hard drives (cost per GB), requires network connection, no online play

    USB Advantages: Once games are installed they are quicker to access, USB drives are cheaper (cost per GB), online play, update like any other game
    USB Disadvantages: Not region free like loadiine, no modding available (to my knowledge)

    So I think they both have their pros and cons, pick one...or use both...personally I perfer the USB method so all my games are on the home-screen...I know what I have just by booting up the Wii U (I could do the same thing with Loadiine if I put the SD card in a computer though)

    tbh it's an issue with the Wii U anyways, USB 2.0 is getting outdated with all the data needed to run stuff now
    Check the Pastebin/Mediafire, just put them up, for some reason NSLU doesn't have a system update and wiiubrew says it has no tmd but I included it just in case, hm

    The only games I have on loadiine are the Japanese games and some injected VC games, but other than that, I don't think it's necessary at the moment to switch over just yet. USB loading is still relatively new, so many things can go right and wrong, and similar to how Wii was a few years back, I'll wait a little while until things are more settled with it.
