    Yes, although the DS games have to be legit, and I mean downloaded and purchased and paid fully from eShop.

    Not if your running CBHC. I have 1 legit ds title to autoboot CBHC then you can install as many ds titles non legit and they work from cold boot as a forwarding channel. You need to make sure you don't overwrite the legit one cause you'll brick your system. Then you can customize the ds games how ever you like.

    So how do you configure each one to work independently of eachother? From my understanding you need a hbl2hbc.txt on the root of your sd card, but wont that same file be shared with all your haxchi forwarders? or am I missing something

    EDIT: Found my answer in an earlier post

    For anyone wondering, these all should match the vWii forwarders:

    UNEO=USB Loader GX
    WFLA=WiiFlow Lite
    UCXF=CFG USB Loader
    WWND=Nintendont

    I created 4 homebrew branched from this. Strictly for booting straight into wiiflow, nintendont, usbloadergx or cfgusbloader. Complete with their own personal images.

    Extract to the root of your sd

    Very nice. Now we only need forwarder channels (to be installed with WUP installer) for all these babies! :P

    I'm hoping someone else does the dirty work for that. In the meantime, I was going to try setting up custom haxchi ones for it by following, I guess it's your guide here: https://gbatemp.net/threads/how-to-...brew-with-buying-only-one-haxchi-game.458646/

    or maybe this: https://gbatemp.net/threads/guide-how-to-forward-homebrew-apps-straight-to-your-homemenu.476562/

    I already created all the images (attached) but I haven't had time to test them yet.

    EDIT: it wont let me remove the attachments... but I tested them and need to fix them up as they didn't work.

    Yes it is but it's a bit of work so I thought forking the already existent hbl2hbc channel (if it's on github) would be faster. :P

    I might get into doing that eventually. and setting up the wiiU apps without needing the config txt file ideally.

    For now, I'll work with the easiest approach which is haxchi :D

    Fine :)
    What's your Wii GAMES folder for? VC stuff like Mario Galaxy and Xenoblade?

    I thought unbricking vWii is easy with ftpiiu everywhere already?

    I want to do stuff like that, but then again I have to pay for multiple VC titles. I'm just going to stick with one HBL2HBC Haxchi channel.
    Also, what's the + PLAYER GAMES folder meant for?

    no need, just follow this guide: https://gbatemp.net/threads/guide-how-to-forward-homebrew-apps-straight-to-your-homemenu.476562/

    I plan on only using one loader though, it was mostly for testing/POC.


    As far as that + folder... it's for 3+ players, but if I add the 3, it moves the "R" to the next line.......... manipulating folder text is annoying


    Anyway, i'll find some hosting site at some point and throw those on there.

    Thank you So much fix94!

    One thing I would you like to update is how about let us make our own each shortcuts for wii roms or homebrew chanels on Wii U main screen.

    I know its not easy at all. it might need PC tools or something else. It cant be just a minor update. But it would be an ultimate tool for everyone. Because it make a Wii U to just like a Wii.

    I personally think the final goal for engineers like you is make the product easy and comfortable to everyone. Am I exaggerating?

    Anyway I thank you for your effort whenever I play Wii U !!

    In order to achieve this it might be possible to pass arguments from hbl2hbc through USB Loader GX (which can take arguments/parameters) to launch a specific game. I asked this in the USBLGX thread once but it might be the case that it's impossible to pass something to the vWii mode.

    i think its only possible to do that with installed vWii channels. so if you have any vWii VC titles lets say, it will work.

    I've achieved this with nothing more than notepad++ (you can use any hex editor) and paint.net (or similar)

    First you want to follow this post:
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/hbl2hbc-v1-1-boot-from-wiiu-hbl-into-vwii-hbc.455673/page-7#post-7115581

    Then, follow this to set up a custom haxchi launch title to it:
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/guide-how-to-forward-homebrew-apps-straight-to-your-homemenu.476562/

    Use this tutorial for custom tga files for haxchi:
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/how-to-create-edit-tga-files-for-haxchi.465027/

    Verify the TGA files with this:

    Yeah that was possible from the beginning. As long as we know the ID of a channel which is installed in vWii we can forward to it with hbc2hbl. Some users even used that to forward to GameCube games as there is a thread around here with which you can create custom Nintendont forwarder channels for specific games.
    But you can't install Wii (disc) games to the home menu. That's why I asked for parameters in the USB Loader GX thread.
    You may know that (on Windows for example) you could do something like this on cmd:
    Code:
    firefox gbatemp.net
    It takes the argument (gbatemp.net) to instantly open the gbatemp site.
    So I thought we can launch USB Loader GX with an argument as well to launch a specific game.
    Example:
    Code:
    UNEO RMCP01
    (RMCP01 is the ID of Mario Kart Wii)

    @Cyan told me that USB Loader GX actually can receive arguments already (and even handle them). But it is most likely not possible to pass arguments from Wii U to vWii although I'm wondering how HBL2HBC is able to tell vWii which channel to launch.

    That's nice but I guess he meant he wants to launch specific games (like I wrote above), not only different loaders.
    Good guide though. :)
