Are WUDumps supposed to take longer than Disc2App dumps?

    I'm just a bit curious, cause i tried using disc2app to dump new super mario bros u to play on cemu but i realized it wasn't the right tool, it was fast but anyway, now i'm using WUdump, and is taken longer than disc2app. :unsure:

    Also how do i dump games installed on my system and the update/dlc? I just got a shovel knight update and i want to try it now, since the file size is small enough until i can install my HDD

    WUDump dumps the entire disc. Disc2app only needs to read the blocks that contain the install files.

    Yes, all WUD images will be the same huge size. Fast (depending on your game) and easy would be to find/download a wux (compressed WUD) version of your game on a shadier site, then expand that back to WUD. Of course, that's only easy if someone has done the work of ripping the disc, compressing the WUD, and uploading the wux already.

    'Scene' releases are wud format, but that's a 25GB download, if you can find it. Since wux isn't (or at least wasn't) a scene standard, you won't necessarily find your game in wux format.

    Can't you run cdecrypt against the files you got from disc2app, then use that output (code/content/meta) with CEMU? I'm pretty sure they removed the disc-image-only limitation months ago. (Otherwise, how would Wii U USB Helper be doing the same thing for its CEMU support?)

    No, if you want WUD files, your three choices are: Rip your disc with wudump, Download a WUD, or Download a WUX and decompress it back to a WUD.

    CDecrypt would extract your disc2app files into code/content/meta, which cemu should be able to use. You would open the rpx file in the code folder from within cemu. I see you've already posted a thread in the emulation section. Hopefully you can get your questions about cemu itself answered there, as I haven't had much success with cemu.
