    First of all, I'm a beginner, and had to figure most of this stuff out on my own yesterday. On my SD card I have the ddd title dumper, the homebrew launcher, and loadiine gx2. I've managed to figure out how to dump the Xenoblade Chronicles X data files onto my computer, then back onto my SD card in a folder called "games" inside the root folder.

    So my first problem is that although I have my game files arranged how the config file says it should be (sd/wiiu/games/Xenoblade Chronicles X/vol/...), when I launch Loadiine GX2, the game doesn't appear anywhere. This is what I'd like to know first, since I can't proceed to the next step without it.

    As for my second problem, I've enabled PyGecko in Loadiine gx2, but to get XCX gecko to work you supposedly need some special software (I don't know what software to use for this) where you host your own server on your computer and all that stuff... And honestly I'm just lost. I haven't been able to find any other threads with detailed, step-by-step instructions that are comprehensible to me. So if anyone would be willing to help out, I'd be really grateful.

    Also, I'm running firmware version 5.5.1.

    Hello,

    You don't have to "figure it out alone" as everything is explained in Loadiine's thread, first post.
    I wrote a full tutorial there, with a FAQ.
    If the game doesn't appear, it's because you didn't add the TitleID.

    wiiu/games/Xenoblade Chronicles X [AX5E01]/


    You can enable gecko option in loadiine, but if you want to use the existing tool with graphical interface created specially for that game, loadiine GX2 will not work. (unless that tool has been updated, but even if it's updated the codes will not work as they weren't created for loadiine GX2)

    oh, and don't put the "vol" folder inside, put the code content and meta.

    wiiu/games/Xenoblade Chronicles X [AX5E01]/code/
    wiiu/games/Xenoblade Chronicles X [AX5E01]/content/
    wiiu/games/Xenoblade Chronicles X [AX5E01]/meta/

    Mine doesn't seem to have a meta folder. Only code, content, and saves... How do I get it?

    it's explained in the ddd thread, first post.
    You have to press Home button to dump the meta folder.
    (tutorials are there, you don't need to figure it out)

    I got a question. If you want to play Cod Ghosts the correct folder name would be 'Call of Duty: Ghosts', the problem is that you can't type a colon for folder names. How do i get around this? Do i just not type the colon?

    first, why would you want to play that game with loadiine (which is an old and deprecated method) instead of using the new install method ? some games are slow, or don't even work.
    second, loadiine doesn't have network access, you'll play call of duty offline, you know that, right?
    and third, the name of the folder has no relation to the game itself. it's the game's title used inside loadiine's interface.

    So, if you really want to use loadiine instead of installing the game to the console or HDD, you can call it "COD Ghosts" if you like !
    or CODG or Call of duty Ghosts or super baddass game
    so yes, just remove the colon from the folder.

    The t
    Yup, at the moment I just want to play the campaign. I called the folder 'Call of Duty Ghosts [ACPE51]' but loadiine won't recognize it. I double and triple checked the game ID and it's correct.

    I checked the wiki compatibility list, and that game is marked as working.
    It was tested on "loadiine 4.0" and not GX (which is newer).
    Maybe the newer version doesn't work. It's rare but possible.

    Also, it's possible the game is very very slow to load.
    for example, Zelda breath of the wild takes 15-20min to start! it's stuck on a white screen while loading, and you have plenty of time to think it's not working. but it works, it's just very slow.

    I can't tell you if call of duty has this problem, but the comment on the compatibility list suggest it. ("japanese version is slow but works after 5 mins")


    your problem is inside loadiine?
    could you show or tell the full path up to the files?

    it should be :
    SD:/wiiu/games/Call of Duty Ghosts [ACPE51]/ inside this folder you need 3 other folders : code, content, and meta.
    did you dump the game yourself (with "ddd" homebrew), or did you get the game from nintendo's servers yourself (JNUStool, or any other tools), or did you download the game from someplace you shouldn't (piracy)?
    just to know where and how you got it, maybe it's missing some files.
    did you compare the size with the value on the wiki ?

    I got the game from a site I shouldn't name as a .wud file, it was about 24GB, then I decrypted it using u wizard and now it's 15.7GB so it should be fine.
    My file structure is:
    D:/games/COD Ghosts [ACPE52]/code
    D:/games/COD Ghosts [ACPE52]/content
    D:/games/COD Ghosts [ACPE52]/meta
    I dunno if i had to do anything with the files in the 'system' folder but i didn't. I've got loadiine gx and the game does not show up...
    Also when I said the game ID was ACPE51 that was just a typo in this thread, don't worry about it

    I found your problem !
    (you should find it too, by looking at my post and yours, and compare the path).

    D:/games/ <--- place gamecube ISO here
    D:/wiiu/games/ <--- place WiiU games here
