    I have a couple games I want to back up to play on 5.3.2 Is it possible to rip from my computer to an iso and dump it to a wud file?

    nope, only tools for dumping games are pygecko for dumping the filesystem and dumpiine to dump the rpx/rpl files, but these are file dumps usable with loadiine not actual wud files (wud files are essentially the wiiu version of iso's)

    yes but only in loadiine format atm, not iso/wud, so not in a format usable with cemu, but you can dump them to use with loadiine.......so it just depends on what you want to use them with.....oh and you have to be on 5.3.2 or lower

    nope, dumping has to be done on the wiiu itself, just have a search in the definitive guide thread, should be something in there for game dumping i assume.....key words are dumpiine and pygecko FSA.....they need to be dumped in 2 stages atm though
    FSA = the games files/content directory (dumped via pygecko)
    RPX/RPL = the games executable (dumped ia dumpiine)

    I was hearing that a disc dumper is possible with the IOSU exploit. No confirmation on it happening though
