    Hello,

    When booting usb installed VC Wii games from a different regionon my WiiU , with haxchi CFG enabled,
    The game does not properly boots. It boot into vWii but then gets problems.
    I get a black screen and have to hard reset my WiiU to get out of this state.

    What would be the proper way to achieve out of region USB VC Wii games working?

    Well in my case it does not, while in region games do work perfectly....
    Because it physically boots into vwii there might be a catch....
    Could it be this only account for select games?
    For instance new super mario bros. Wii Jap refused to work on my euro console with CF haxchi....

    I think it depends on what the game is installed on , it seems like some devices lose communication when switching to Vwii

    I could never get them to work on a flash , got a external and they all stated working , never tried nand cause I didn't trust them..... would just get a black screen , wii flash on gamepad and cd drive make a noise , and would have to unplug wii , some times if I waited long enough wiiu menu would come back -- tried 3 flash drives -- then bam the external worked great

    Flash drives lights would be stop glowing .. so no access being indicated

    also had a problem with a external I had with a Y connector , wall powered is the one with no issues with ever in and out of region game

    I am using external drive with y cable.
    Euro games do work, usa game do not.

    The wiiu boots into vWii and the drive makes a noise, then black screen....
    Hopefully this will get a workaround?

    Maybe the vWii can be hacked tobe region free?
