    Used uTikDownloadHelper.exe and downloaded the game with the ticket. Updated the game through the Wii U's official update.

    This is currently happening (Only happens at that place, and if I run towards the bug's direction, it fixes):

    Could that be happening due to the game being on a Flash Drive of 16GB? Kinda scared my Wii U's Graphic Card is failing (Even though every other game and every other area looks smooth).

    Any idea?

    EDIT: Used saviine to dump the save, then removed the Flash Drive where everything is installed. Used my original disc to install on the system and injected the save, and everything works flawlessly now.

    We think the reason of the error is because of downloading the game through the ticket with uTikDownloadHelper.exe, then letting the Wii U itself download the updates.People that have downloaded both the game + update seem to not have experienced this glitch.

    People have been telling me that installing it on USB has more problems than console. Maybe because of read speed?

    ARE YOU ENTERTAINED NOW
    Yeah, I'll try again with my original disc copy tomorrow when I go retrieve it. Hopefully that's really it (And I'm positive that that's the reason).

    Already tried, but that shit faded when I got near :[

    Earth, bro-dude.
    Install to your NAND, ASAP. This game will get corrupted if you play for extended sessions on USB. I lost a lot of hours when it shitted on me and once it's corrupt, it's too late. Transfer takes about an hour, but required ~11GB. Worth moving, if you value your saves. Plus, the time it would take to delete and install would be mitigated by taking this precaution. And all the time you put in so far.

    That's interesting. Personally, the game seems really stable to me. haven't found a single glitch yet.

    I thought there were issues if you combine disc and WUP? I could have sworn someone was mentioning bricking by doing that? Also, the potential of Saviine messing up scares me too much to attempt. Good luck.

    It's only a matter of time; if you don't play much, you should be okay? I'd just get it to NAND to avoid issues.

    wii u version is fine, at least our screens don't flicker and the game doesn't randomly crash

    should be fine as long as you don't have any issues like this since it's reading off of an SD card and not internal memory

    I haven't had a single issue. Been playing on a 1TB USB HD since the 3rd with no issues.

    Having said that, I have a Saviine backup just in case...

    Retrieved my Disc and tried the game with it. Updated through the disc onto the System Memory.

    . 20170309_113459.jpg

    It was a Flash Drive issue. Saviine also helped transferring my save onto the system. Also, the save exports the pictures of the weapons separately, so one most likely could put any picture with the same format/dimensions and inject it onto the Wii U and it should display in Zelda's Album. lol

    Should definitely test this.

    Also, any suggestion for a Hard Drive to buy? I really want to dump all my games digitally.

    I don't think it's possible with harddrives. Game loads everything on-the-fly and almost every HDD can't handle amount of objects it's loading at once.

    I'll rephrase the question then. Any suggestion as to what Portable Drive to buy?

    Wherever my Pikachu is.
    I'd personally recommend a cheap y-cable for a 2.5" hdd/ssd or enclosed 3.5" one with external power, a 250gb 3.5" is only like 15$, the enclosure though is what will cost a bit more, I've had absolutely no issues since I installed it on release, downloaded prior using usb helper, not eshop

    I got a 3.5 drive with external power, 52h into the game, 3 guardians down. had 10-12h sessions and 0 problems. I will make a saviine backup but nothing more.

    So far I've yet to encounter a single visual glitch. Started off with the leaked EU copy, moved to the US copy when the .TIK became available and brought my save with me using Saviine. I obtained the game and updates with Wii U USB Helper and installed with WUP Installer UF Mod to USB, not NAND. I've even left the game running for 30+ hours with no issues. So far, it seems to me that I'm only noticing people having issues on USB if they got the base game through the CDN using a tool, then updated the game on the Wii U itself.
