    I’m trying to create a GAME LOADER CHANNEL FORWARDER for the Wii games that are on my SD CARD (on the Wii U - vWii). I’m using WiiGSC to create the WAD files, but the forwarders always point to the USB drive. I tried different options (WiiFlow, USB loader, etc...), but none of them will launch the games. Does anyone have any experience in successfully creating game forwarders that point to the SD card? I've spent hours in creating wads, installing them, testing, rebooting, deleting! :cry::cry::cry:

    My games are located in a WBFS folder on my 128GB SD card. I’m using WiiFlow to successfully launch them, but I would love to be able to launch them directly from the vWii menu.

    Thank you in advance

    Have you tried streaming the file instead? :o

    No, I never even heard of streaming a file. :huh: Is there a tutorial on how to do it? Any help would be appreciated.

    Well, TCPGecko uses something called a TCP connection to stream files from the Wii U to PC, since there wasn't a proper kernel exploit (they had their own private one) when they developed it. You might try to look it up, but I don't think it will be helpful, more like an interesting read. :P

    TCPGecko is only for the wii u side, but the OP wants to use the game channels on the vWii side. I think you have to convert the WAD to make it compatible. Search for Convert2vWii.

    Yes, I used Convert2vWii and I can easily create game channels that will load from USB, but none of them will load from the SD CARD. That's where my dilemma is. I need them to load from the SD Card.
