    Can i do this step for blocking and nothing else before it? Would that be enough? Or do i need to do the initial dns blocking too?

    This step is more secure than DNS so you're good to go with this alone if you want

    it just tells you it can't launch. nothing happen. no brick, no crash, no freeze, no issues. just a prompt telling you it couldn't launch, and an error number.

    Getting frustrated, i have searched in different ways and found some but nothing as easy to follow as your guide for haxchi. A simple equivalent for getting started with nintendont and vc injector. Very unsure by it. i want to have nintendont on wii u and games on same hdd as wii u games. If possible.

    TeconMoon's Wii/GC VC injector seems to be the go to script to inject Wii and GC games, if you haven't already done so, click HERE for more details.
    The only way to have GC games (Nintendont) on the same HDD as your installed WiiU games is to create a GC inject, this allows you to have GC on the same HDD as WiiU Games.

    I saw that. I downloaded the injector. Im just not sure about what to do next. Do i get isos and use injector on isos? Not sure how. And what to do with the nintendont?

    Yes you need to obtain your own GC ISO's then use the script to create an inject, then use your preferred WUP installer to install onto your ext USB HDD.

    As for Nintendont, it's just a matter of prepping your SD CARD, there is an option within this script that is called "Nintendont SD Card Menu", this option preps the SD CARD for you, just need the SD CARD connected to your PC. If you have used Nintendont before on a real Wii or in vWii, then there will be options in here that you will be familiar with.

    Hi all. To ask a question pertaining to above.

    I found a thread on how to make Wii and GC games injects for the Wii U, to load the game via the Wii U screen. But I see it needs an SD card for the games. Can the games be in the USB HDD instead?

    I am looking for threads on how to play RETRO games as well like NES, SNES, Neo Geo, N64, and whatever else available. Any thread on this?

    Thanks.

    I have installed CBHC + HaxChi and have a problem that my alternative Controller now isn't emulating the WiiU-Gamepad anymore. I didn't find a solution so I am planning to uninstall CBHC and HaxChi as described here wiiu.hacks.guide/uninstall-cfw.html and then doing a WiiU format and install everything again. Is there any other (easier) solution maybe a reset of the Hid-Controller settings of the WiiU?

    In my haxchi config file, default is the path to the homebrew launcher. So when i clicked on the haxchi icon it launches homebrew launcher. And from there i launch nand dumper. But i get the errors when trying to launch a dump

    You already stated that your NOT in CFW so we're assuming your not using Coldboot Haxchi correct?

    Nope not using CBH. The guide says to backup before proceeding.

    I will try reformatting my 64gb sdcard. It is a samsung evo 64gb. Don't know if this makes a difference
