    Hello

    I am going to shorten this as I read up most of it now.
    Please can anyone help me answer these:

    1. Can I use my HDD to store my Wii U, Wii and GC games (Basically all the games).
    2. Where is the best place to download the Wii u isos?
    3. Can I still play online e.g. Smash Wii U?

    Please can anyone advise. Thank you.

    Hola.
    1. Of course not. but you can use an Usb or Hdd for both Wii and GC games. (besides that, u need a Hdd or Usb only for Wii U games).
    2. The Wii u games don´t come in Iso.format... (at least if you are planning to install them with *Wup Installer, as i do.
    3. Yes, you can play all the Wii U games online...

    I read through that. It only mentions Wii and GC games. Nothing about Wii U.

    Also where do we get hold of the wii u games to download?

    First of all, go to that "ticket database URL", and download the ticket for the Wii U game that you wish. Then, you can use any download program from this tutorial: https://gbatemp.net/threads/wii-u-usb-loading-install-wiiu-games-to-usb-or-internal-memory.445514/
    Personally i use JNUSTool Gui Mod, or Wii U USB Helper. Wii U USB Helper is nice and easy to use it, even let you download updates for the games.

    Wii USB Helper is down, and Funkii UI is pretty good as well

    What do you mean?

    Some of these sound very complicated. So far I haven't put homebrew on my wii u due to fear of bricking.

    Currently I want to put about 40 wii games and it would be better to put them on a hard drive but I want to put most of the wii u games on there as I only had like 5 of them.

    So this method allows for me to store everything on my hhd. Originally, why couldn't wii and wii u games be stored on one hhd?

    the wii u has to format the hhd into order for it to store things onto it, meaning you had to have had a second hhd for wii and gamecube. With the injector, it allows you to inject wii and gamecube games into icons onto the system and is stored on the wii u hhd.

    Can someone recommend a set up for homebrew?
    There seems to be different guides and each one seems to have varying results as now the patches may have made them obsolete in a way.
