    Can you tell me (step by step, preferably) how I can download and extract the files for SMG2 eShop version?

    There's no way to do it without a ticket file, which is unobtainable by normal means.

    What if someone had it downloaded to their Vwii-modded Wii U?

    Still unobtainable since vWii is sandboxed.

    Wait, so is the digital Wii games on the Wii U in Wii U mode instead of vWii mode?

    Yes, it's still installed to the eMMC (which can only be accessed in the normal mode), but it boots into Wii compatibility mode somehow.
    EDIT: Plus the fact that the ticket would be on eMMC regardless.

    Would it be possible to dump the game iso itself from a Wii U with the Wii game downloaded to it? Like convert the game file from the SD Card into an iso that can be usable on a computer.

    Yes if you have a kernel/IOSU exploit but why would you want to? I checked and literally all they did was copy the files from the original game. It's the same size.

    So you could buy it on your Wii U and then dump it for play on your computer. $10 is way cheaper than a $40 used game disc, plus it gives the original developer of the game money instead of to Gamestop.


    Is it possible to save the digital Wii games to an SD Card or external HDD, or is it locked to the internal HDD?

    I'd want to know the difference. Do the MD5 hashes match up to any known dump?

    We couldn't do it for WiiWare, we can't do it now.
