    So yestoday i finally got haxchi on my Wii u. I play Super Mario bros wii u. But i try to find alot of USA Loadliine Like Yoshi's Wolly world but all i find is Eu versions. Idk if it matters ... but my wii u is USA. Also I want to know which one is quicker? Or theres an alternative method besides ripping your own WUD and then decompressing it with a Loadlinne tool.

    Wup is better, permanent games on home menu + faster load times + more compatability.

    with funkiiu, then no, it should just download in the format compatible with wupinstaller, I thought you had a wud file which you need to use the program I linked to convert it into a way for wup to install. and online should work fine

    Sorry for all that questions. last thing, from now on i download wud files and use this because is simpler i guess? IDK how it works thoe...... Also so online play is activated? i thought only brazilian method allowed this. SO after this turns from a wud to app i use wud installer? I have wud from a site called portalroms.... so like dont they need to be sigpatched or something of that sort. SO Like lastly, downloading wud files ultimately is easier then normal loadline ready games?

    Thats a horribly convoluted method and most likely wont work, just use funkii-ui to download the game, install with wupinstaller.

    So let me get this clear? I have a WUD file from a site. I used to use it with Cemu emulator. i take that and add it in to Funkiiwiiu and also idk where to find Title keys for funkiwiiu

    You dont even need a WUD, funkiiu can download the entire game in an installable format.

    You're confusing WUD, WUP and Brazillian Method

    WUD -> Original releases from years ago
    WUP Installer -> Wii U homebrew app that installs full games, updates, dlc and VC to system menu or USB
    Brazilian Method -> Using full disc tickets to install downloads from NUS (use Wii U Helper or FunKiiUNETThingy to get the games)

    If you have a wud file that you use on CEMU you need to use the program above to convert it to a group of files the WUP installer can install

    yeah, youre right, I just havent used funkiiu in a while and been used to that instead, to use wud2app, then yes it has to be your own disc dumps

    The easiest way to go is to use Wii U USB Helper to download the full game, DLC, updates and or VC titles. Then just put them in a folder on your SD card called "install" in the root. Then use WUP installer and you're good to go.

    You download them with Wii U Helper and then you transfer them to SD for installation. Get the app store for your HBL. Go on there and download WUP installer. Then use WUP installer to install the game to system memory or USB from the SD card.
