    I ordered a set of 10 ntags from AliExpress to write amiibo.bin data. The file is fine and it writes perfectly but when I scan the tag in a game it says it's not an amiibo? The tag is Ntag216 but it said it was 215 compatible. Am I doing something wrong?

    Judging from what I have read about NFC tags for the WiiU, you MUST use Ntag215. No other Ntags will work.

    Has anyone tried filling the excess data space on 216 with 0s and write it that way? Open the 215 bin with hex editor and start adding 0s to the 504 bytes till it fills whatever space is on a 216? Just an idea. Also saw someone mention something about partitioning the excess space off.

    But from everything anyone says 216 don't work.
