    I just finished building a new rig and i want to play my disk rips on my PC now. I can already play the games as is in raw extracted format but its a bit messy. I don't to keep a bunch of extracted games and browse for rpx files every time making all the fragmentation. I see that CEMU supports loading from wud, wux and iso,I plan to use wux, do we have any apps that can convert to wud format yet?

    In theory it's possible, but the result will be totally nonlegit (and outright incomplete - update partition, for one) so I don't see much demand for something that would only benefit the users of a single emulator (which may well add support for running the complete OS, and thus proper title installation with the official launcher :))

    I would suggest dumping the Wii U discs again. You can use wudump for the dumping and then JWUDTool for compressing to WUX (+ use the wux).
    Creating an own wud is theoretically possible, but no one created a tool for it (and probably never will)

    You can use updates? You didn't say if with CEMU? But the answer is yes. You didn't say if with Wii U? Answer also yes. Your question isn't specific at all. You can even merge the updates if you'd like for Brazil install. You're really going to have to be specific, but the answer is yes, you can use updates.
