    Hey guys, there are a few games i have recently grabbed with jnus.

    and they do not come with title keys, i googled and searched on the iso sites/the title tik site.
    neither of them had the title keys i needed.

    so i'd like to ask, whether it is possible to edit or just use a title key from a different game with the ones i have downloaded, and then using some homebrew app like tik2sd to dump (maybe this will dump the original title key of the game i want) and then mayhap work ?

    Title keys are unique. You can't just use a key on the wrong software.

    owh hot damn :c
    guess i'll just have to redownload the game i need in EUR then.

    as i only found the ticket key from the game i want in EUR (Oddworld new n tasty) on the key site.
    i have a U.S console, but i have cbhc installed on it, it autoboots into fw img i believe.

    so i should be fine with installing a EUR game yea?

    edit: actually ._. ehem, the title key from the games on the key site are not available, the name is there but no ticket available for download.
    dang it, guess i will pass on those 2 games i wanted to try out.

    Yes
    eShop-only games have the key, but not the ticket, because the submitter's ticket is specific to their console. You have to use that key to generate a fake ticket, or use a program like FunkiiU or WiiU USB Helper to create one for you. (FunkiiU can grab/create just the ticket if you ask it for -ticketsonly. You won't have to redownload the whole title.)

    this is awesome, thank you.
    but i cannot get python running, i open funkiiu.py and it just opens/closes up a cmd window in a flash.
    how do i get it running ?

    edit: nvm i just went on ahead and googled abit, found an exe version of funkiiu, i loathe python, it never works the way it should for me, even though i install it correctly/and the path sh1t

    the thing is, how do i download only a ticket with it ?
    i have the gui open now, and i entered the key site in the 'the key site' field.

    and clicked download/update json thing.

    got this from it
    FunKiiUNETThingy Loaded!

    WARNING! Can't access config.json, using default config instead.
    Could not find file 'C:\Users\Seinegald\Desktop\New folder (2)\config.json'.
    Titles will be saved in C:\Users\Seinegald\Desktop\New folder (2)\install

    Updating titlekeys.json...
    Fetching titlekeys.json from: -DON'T LINK TO TITLE KEYS-
    ERROR! Can't download titlekeys.json!
    Could not find a part of the path 'C:\Users\Seinegald\Desktop\New folder (2)\ -DON'T LINK TO TITLE KEYS-'.


    and mate, the key site does not have the game (from the region) i am trying to fetch a ticket from.
    oddworld new n tasty (U.S) the site has only EUR.

    what do i do ~.~' (guess i will have to depend on python for the single file download.. but need to get it working first ughh)

    edit2: and btw. i only know the titleID of oddworld, since i grabbed it from jnus.
    i do not have title key for it =_= , and it is not available in the title key website.
    i only see the EUR version.
    i think i give up on this.

    You already knew that. You asked if you could load the EUR version. I answered YES. As I mentioned earlier, if you want only the ticket, you use -ticketsonly, but that would only be helpful if you went back and grabbed the EUR version, which is what I thought you did based on your question about loading it. Sorry we weren't on the same page.

    Anyway... Here's how to create tickets only.
    To create fake tickets only
    To get the whole title, leave off the -ticketsonly

    The error output you posted above contains the link to the keys site... Can you edit it?

    Also I think it didn't work because you didn't put http://
