    Hello, is it possible to dump the wii u games of a disk and install it to a USB? Also, after I dump it, do I need to get the title.tik or is it within the dump?

    As of right know you can only dump the title.tik then use that with a nus download from pc. No way to dump and install directly.

    If that becomes possible in the future you wouldn't need to worry about dumping the ticket.

    Could I dump the entire disk? I do have redNand so I could make a dummy title.tik.

    Even with rednand you can't dump to installable format. You need a tool that can dump to wud which don't exist (at least publicly...Team Salt) the decrypt to installable format.

    If you want to make a proper loadiine dump then use wupclient to make a full proper loadiine dump (DDD doesn't dump everything)

    So lets say I find a game that I could install to USB and have the Disk of. Is it possible to extract the save from the disk to the digital game?

    If you are installing to usb just move the save to usb before installing the game. If installing to system memory then move the save to system memory

    So there is no homebrew application I could use to transfer the save. I could just do it via system settings. Correct?

    Lets say I want to sell a game that I don't play anymore (physical), how do I delete the save file completely?

    The save file is saved to the console not the disc. Just like the wii and gamecube (memory cards)

    So if I buy the same game completely new, the save data will all be there from the original disk?

    Yup, as long as it's the same Wii U User.
