    switches only temporarily to 480p as long as you're using vWii.

    yet another addition:

    I didn't like that the config file has to be in the root folder of the sd card (I prefer the wiiu/apps/hbc2hbl/ folder) so I added the possibilty to use either
    /sd/hbl2hbc.txt
    or
    /sd/wiiu/apps/hbl2hbc/hbl2hbc.txt
    or
    /sd/wiiu/apps/hbl2hbc.txt (dont use this location. just added this because elf file could also launched from here)

    the patch files can be used to patch the source code before you compile it.

    if you just want to use the application you dont need them

    @FIX94 I'm assuming this method won't give game pad support but will allow use of USB ports. I normally use injects but lack of not being able to read USB Ports and few other draw backs would be cool if that issue was fixed for injects though

    Thank you so much for this! It is so useful.

    Could you make a version that boots to USB Loader GX instead of the Homebrew Channel?

    Additionally, could you make a version that boots into ConnectMii?
    Connect me is found in: sd/apps/ConnectMii

    Thanks so much!!

    EDIT: I now realize I can do this myself. Apologies for not understanding this app.

    Can this be done to Wii/GC injects made with TeconMoon's WiiVC Injector to achieve a 480p output too?
    This way one can boot straight into the game, and straight in 480p mode, without booting vWii in advance.

    I dont know much about game injecting but imo this would only be possible if you can add homebrew which needs to be booted before the game boots (somewhat similar to that vwii overclock thingy)

    Oh, I see. Seems too troublesome. I'll stick with the current method for now.

    Hi, @mive. Thanks for the awesome mod.
    Can you please make 1080p version that includes multiple config location and has display off?
    Would be nice to be able to boot to vWii with display off.
    On my display, 480p looks much worse than 1080p upscaled by WiiU itself but it would be nice to be able to boot to vWii with display off.
    Also is "display off" different than selecting TV only? or are they same?

    yes, of course this is possible, although it would be better to have a setting for this (like WIIU_GAMEPAD_DISPLAY). I started working on this a few weeks ago but got distracted.

    WIIU_GAMEPAD_DISPLAY=OFF uses only the tv, so yes its the same as tv only
    WIIU_GAMEPAD_DISPLAY=ONLY uses only the wiiu gamepad display (although if you like it that way you can also just turn off your tv or switch source. so its not that useful but I thought I add it anyway)

    the usb loader gx forwarder on the wii u side uses this hbl2hbc, so using the dark mode through cbhc and the hbl causes it to black screen. I've stopped using dark mode, because there are a couple bugs with it (nothing too major). I tested it for about a week.

    Thanks, glad to hear about that. I wanted to go straight into USB loader GX with Display off without having to use Wii Remote but only to use Pro Controller. Existing USB Loader GX forwarder seem to be same as this HBL2HBC so I can only have it installed on USB which would mean I would have to have WiiU HDD connected. But with hbl2hbc with display off, that issue would be solved.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Has anyone released USB loader GX forwarder that can be installed to NAND at the same time as hbl2hbc?
    I read from another post that injecting to DS VC like haxchi would work but looks complicated.

    I don't know. I think the creator made another version with a different title id though.
