    Hello, I just have a quick question. As the title states, I'm wondering if it was possible to use DLC in a Wii U Game through loadiine if that DLC (which is free in the eshop) is downloaded directly from the eshop, allowing the Wii U to recognize that the DLC is there in the system legitimately.

    Not currently, as I understand. Loadliine only has access to the SD card storage, so all games it can read are there, as DLC and updates. Same with game saves, it can only read and write from the SD card.

    Free DLC from the eshop and paid DLC from the eshop work the exact same way in Loadiine. Set everything up properly according to the instructions for DLC which are clearly written in the Loadiine OP and it will work.

    Thank you for your replies. So it is possible to do, so long as I place the DLC in the SD card while also having it downloaded from the eshop. I will reference the Loadiine GX thread and figure out the steps from there.

    Edit: After reading the Loadiine thread, it states that you need to have either the game disk or digital copy to install the DLC from the eshop. Is there any way around this?

    It is possible to get free DLC an easy way, but the game particularly has to be mod-able. Not sure if i'm allowed to say anything involving steps, so you will have to search around yourself. (Unless of course someone specifically gives proof I won't be banned if I say anything)
