    I want to dump my Wii U discs to use with Loadiine. Is this currently possible?

    According to @ihaveamac it took him about 6 hours (~1GB per hour, with 6GB/Go or so?).

    If you're like me and you have a shitty connection, this is still a hell lot faster than downloading 15 or 20 gigabytes.

    How about .wud game files? Is there a way to load these with Loadiine?

    not in .wud format

    but yoy can open the .wud with "Uwizard"

    and then

    use search engine and seacrh:
    "game name + title id key"
    "and wiiU common key"

    once those 2 key files are aquired then you can turn a .wud into the 3 folders for use with loadiine. it's easy to do. but the keys will take a few seconds to find on the Web.

    Edit: when extracted it will have these folders
    \code
    \data (inside this is \content folder)
    \meta

    Ok, this worked using the Uwizard tool. Thanks :)

    Now I have another downloaded game, that has the code and content folders, but no meta folder. The game is shown in Loadiine, but has no icon. Is there a way to add the missing meta folder to the game?

    Speaking of DDD and connection speeds and such. Is there a way to like, direct connect via ethernet to the PC you are dumping to? I dunno, like perhaps it could act as a lan switch, and copy the files directly to it? Idk, has anyone done something like that?
