    I've never personally converted to loadiine ready, but the process would basically be:
    1. Dump you game to wud format using wudump. https://gbatemp.net/threads/wudump-dump-raw-images-from-a-wiiu-game-disc.451736/page-12

    2. I'm not 100% sure but I imagine you will need to merge the multiple wud parts that wudump creates for you. Explained how to do this in wudump OP.

    3. Use something like UWizard to decrypt the wud. https://gbatemp.net/threads/uwizard-all-in-one-wii-u-pc-program.386508/

    4. Copy the correct folders( code, content, and meta) from the extracted wud to your SD card. The folders you will want to copy are found in the data folder from the extracted wud. The SD folder structure should be
    Code:
    /wiiu/games/game_name [gameid]/
    The gameid can be found inside UWizard

    USB loading gives you online, USB support and better load times. Though for offline only games, Loadiine is fine.

    Usb loading seems like a hell of a lot of work for a dying machine.

    And i only really can about mario maker.

    Plus dont feel like investing in another hard drive

    Nonsense. I taught one of my 8 year cousins to exploit his console and having USB copies running within half n hour.

    USB is easy. Just get haxchii and wii usb helper. Also youtube has guides you can follow.
