Hello, I've made good progress hacking vWii since I got a Wii U a few weeks ago, thanks to the stickies and so on. I'm amazed by the effort of the devs involved and loving me some Gamecube access in particular - thanks so much to everyone helping on the scene and those answering questions. Although I have it working reasonably well I now have a growing list of new questions. I thought I'd put a list below of some of these but may get told to sub-split it into new treads later as it's quite a lot. Please be patience with me if something is clearly covered in another thread – and also please know I have spent some time trying to find the answer, rather than just bugging the community before applying effort. 1. The main question is: Is there a way to boot directly to USB Loader GX in Wii U vWii mode? I know vWii does not allow priiloader to work - but is there a Wii U vWii alternative method? I can find no clear yes or no to this. It is quite possible the answer is a simple no. Fingers crossed it isn't. other questions I hope to clarify: 2. Has anyone got the new Retroarch 1.2.1 working – also with a forwarder. I can't get it to start. I did see a note about trouble with invisible files causing boot.dat to fail if a Mac is used for setup - but I've already followed the instructions to remove the files so it isn't that. I'm hoping 1.2 will be a leap forward for N64 compatibility (when the core is added) – esp. or Banjo Kazooie and Conkers B.F.D. 3. does Nintendont MasterMOD work/is it safe to use in vWii mode. I can't find a reference to it or Wii U in that tread. https://gbatemp.net/threads/nintendont-themes-and-custom-mods.374469/. Also to be honest I find I can't understand the instructions on that thread. I'll try again but if someone could suggest a 1. 2. 3. etc... step process that worked for them that would be very kind. 4. Is there threads to help with the following that I have missed (yes I have had a good look) and are they suitable for virtual Wii. Changing the artwork for apps - such as there mid-load screens and the 'focus in' screen when you select one from the vWii system menu. (outside of the Homebrew Channel). Especially interested in changing USB Loader GX. Changing the artwork for forwarders 'focused out' channels on the vWii system menu? Changing the name/s of apps and forwarders? Can the GX series of emulators be themed? If not could you tell me if they are possible. Some are animated, so maybe this is much more complicated and would only be possible with amazing coding skills. Any help is much appreciated. If I get no further with the process I already have a single machine that can play nearly everything non-handheld (and a lot of handheld) produced by Nintendo and that's incredible. Playing games I own but no longer have access to the original systems anymore is so good. F-Zero GX just blew me away when I saw how well my hacked vWii handled it. Bruno.
