    My question is the same as stated in the topic post. I have a lot of virtual console games an wiiware but I ran out of space on my wii u so I was wondering if I could play them off the sd card. Any help would be great

    I haven't tried this yet on the vWii but on a Wii you were able to install a VC/WW title to your nand then move it to the SD card and load it into memory from there

    you may be able to do this with NAND emulation and SNEEK, but that's beyond my technical knowhow.

    Yeah that's what I tried doing but it's not letting me the message I get is "Failed to launch" can if I try to move it back to the Vwii it says "game may have not been moved" or something similar.

    It works with authentic wads, meaning purchased VC/Wiiware.

    The answer for how to do this with pirated/injected VC games/Wiiware would result in several vWii bricks.

    MAN!
    Just in the other thread i told you to use clean wad dumps!
    Please read carefully the next time!!
    Only tempered and injected stuff "failes to launch" from SD card!
    I have many clean dumps moved to my SD card and they all launch perfectly fine.
     
    d.d.d. and Plunt like this.
