if you can't find that site I can't help you it's always on the first page of google I am not allowed to tell you the URL as It's against the rules.
The Tik site, I've looked at it and downloaded a couple of .tik files for games before, but have never seen update .tiks

Are they labeled as 'patch'?

It now says "Preparing update". I've played a few hours ago and it was ok.

I have updates blocked by DNS and the game installed via OP and mocha CFW since feb 28th.

EDIT: ok, I need the v33. I will conserv my save right? (I'm 60+ hours in)

EDIT2: Installed v33 through WUP and works perfectly

Hey guys, I'm losing my mind so I thought I could come to you since the discord channel apparently disappeared (?)

I've been trying to install this game for 3 days, at first it didn't show the Install folder, so I formatted my sd and tried again, same thing again. I decided to follow the gba temp guide and this time it is indeed showing my Install folder, but everytime I try to install it, it says "not a game, game update, dlc, demo or version title". I've tried launching mocha before and not launching mocha.

I literally don't know what to do and I'm honestly starting to feel really stupid. Would appreciate some help because I might be overlooking something, who knows.

Thanks in advance guys :)

Two quick questions:

1) Do you have a "ticket.tik" file in the folder for the install files?
2) Does your install folder for the game include subdirectories?

You should not need to use Mocha at all unless you are using a release from a different region than your console and you do not region patch.

You may have the Loadiine-ready version of the files, which will not work for installation.

Yes and no, I downloaded the game with wii u usb helper and used it to put it in my sd too. Tried many different sources. I know I don't have the loadiine version because I use loadiine for some other games and I'm familiarised with it

Did you check the file count and size of the folder for the game (259 files, ~10GB) and confirm a match?

Yep everything seems to be fine which is what's driving me crazy, I just have no idea what I'm doing wrong :/

Random edit: I notice my ticket is called title, can that be what's wrong?

The correct name is "title.tik". I am the dumb.

Have you attempted to install the v33 update to see if that much works?

I did but it gives me the same error, there was a point where I thought it could be my sd but then loadiine games wouldn't work. I'm afraid I'm just an idiot lol

Edit: Guys, the problem was my sd card. So if anyone is having the same problem, just make sure your sd card is legit, mine wasn't as it was bought off ebay. Buy it locally even if you end up spending more. It's worth it!

Thanks Dimensio for your help, though (:

I'm currently having an issue. I've installed BotW and the update successfully. However, each time the game loads it prompts me to update the game. I then choose to skip and continue without updates. After the game loads, it gets stuck at a window stating I need to update my Wii U firmware when it's already at the latest firmware version.

Hey 1st I want to say thank you. I have 2 questions.
1. Where to download the files?
2. Can I play Splatoon online when i have botw installed or do I have to delete it?

Hi,
I managed to successfully do the trick for SM Kart 8, but I didn't for Zelda BotW. Because I can't manage to find the Free DLC the Nintendo eShop.
I was wondering if it is not anymore available (since the initial post is 4 years old) or if it is due to the fact the version I installed was directly the v1.5 (so including the upgrade v1.2 which is the same than the Free DLC as far as I understood).
If this answer is the latest, question: do I have to reinstall with a version <1.2 then download the v1.2? Would it work? Would it make the free DLC available again, allowing me to have a legit ticket for this DLC?

Another (a bit extreme) option I envisaged was to delete the files corresponding to this language pack (000000018.*, size around 800Mb, from the top of my head, but I have to find the thread where I read that to check). Would it force the software to redownload these files (and more importantly the ticket associated with this DLC)?

Unlikely, I don't know if it's still available. Plus, to downgrade you'd need to hex the versions.bin file. Not hard really, but I don't think that will solve the issue.

I just got aware I didn't post in the right thread (I wanted to post it on the thread explaining how to modify tickets to make BOTW+DLC work without the CFW). Sorry about that.
