    I try and fit donkey kong country tropical freeze on my sd card but says its to big. Its 8 gb and my card is a san disk 32gb ultra. its fat 32 and I guess they dont support file transfers more than 4 gb, so, I tried formatting to NTFS and when I do that It will allow the file transfer but then when I try to load up loadiine it says sd card mount fail. So, next I tried to use a fat32 formatted card to load the loadiine and then I put in the sd card formatted to NTFS but the game didnt show up, so I am wondering also how should your sd card be set up to get the back up to run off of the sd card? I have it as SD:WIIU/GAMES/Donkery kong country tropical freeze. inside the games folder I have another folder with the name of the game and in that I have the main game file and the title id and then I have another folder named code that I put the rest of the files. Is this correct?

    NO COFFEI!
    sounds correct although I believe there is a way to trim it into multiple parts. Although it's beyond my knowledge

    All of your questions are answered in the Loadiine GX2 thread. It's all in the OP. You cannot use ntfs when using wii u sd cards. It must be fat32. You say your game is 8GB total? You should be fine transferring as long as no single file is larger than 4GB. Are you trying to transfer a single file? The game should be a folder with three other folders. Meta, content, and code.

    if you're copying the wud file directly to your sd card, you're doing it wrong

    Read my post above. I already linked you to the OP for loadiine gx2. It explains everything in there.

    I think it's clear he had a wud file. I don't think he read the stickies or he'd know you have to extract

    Also you can't fit 4Gb + games on a Fat32 , and the wii u doesn't support the NTFS format.

    Ok that makes much more sense. You need to download "winrar". It's free. It will "combine" (decompress) the files into their original form. Start with the one call .rar or .r01. The program will find the rest.

    See you're real problem is with your download. You don't know what to do with the files after you illegally obtained them. That's gonna irritate some users on here because we won't help you with pirating issues. You haven't even gotten the files to "loadiine ready" yet. You're still struggling to figure out how to get the files. We won't help you with that (even tho I just did)

    When you have the files in "ready for loadiine" mode then feel free to ask for help. Just don't bother telling us how you got them.

    Google "UWizard". That's the program I (and many others) use to "extract" the contents of a WUD file. Note that you'll need to find certain keys before you can actually extract anything (just google the name of each key, followed by "pastebin" - the keys are found under the rightmost tab).

    He's not that far. He had rar files. He needs to first decompress those. It's ready for loadiine so when he decompressed he's not gonna have a wud.

    So Mario tennis doesn't have the meta data folder so it doesn't show up in loadiine is there any way I can acquire them?

    the meta is not really needed, it's only to get the icon in loadiine.
    if you don't see the game at all (even without an icon), then it's not because the meta is missing but because you didn't put the game to the correct folder.

    There's also a possibility that the "loadiine ready" is the VERY old format (that old format was used like for 4 days only, it was changed quickly, but some games was already released "ready" in this format).
    In loadiine thread, there is explanation to convert the old "ready" format to the new one.
