Hi,
I know it's unusual, but I have 4 wiiU. Why did I bought 4? Because I wanted to fill their Memory with games on each consoles.
As you know, just a game like Project Zero Maiden of Black Water With DLC already Takes so much, you wouldn't be able to install Bayonetta 2 or Zelda BOTW on the same wiiU!!!
So, I wanted 4 wiiU to be able to load quickly from memory all the games I had.

I have an installation, and Each time, it's time it's easy, I just disconnect the console from the wires and but another "in" and put the other consoles in my cupboard.
But there is a Problem.....Each time I reconnect a wiiU, I must each time Reparameter my WIIU Gamepad, My Gamepad Pro and My 2 Wiimotes to the console....EACH TIME there is a Switch of WIIU console to my Tv!
Is there a way to Bypass that? So each time I put another console, it keeps the parameters or the Specific gamepad that was used before, despite the console is not connected? And that I launch it with always the same gamepad without having to reconfigure All? Is there a "common" files somewhere on a console, that I can copy from one WiiU To the others so they have a common "Gamepad" when launching the console with "on" from the WIIU Gamepad?

I don't think that's a thing. From what I know, each controller can only be parried to one console at a time. So you have to pair the controller to another console EACH TIME you want to use the same controller with another console. It's how all bluetooth devices work from what I know. I'm sure the controller itself has information that tells it what to device to pair it with when it get paired and can only remember ONE device at a time. :ninja:

A very intelligent but no so brilliant move, as you forgot to buy the extra gamepads for the other Wii U's.

Also each console support external USB storage for games by default.

(I really hope this isn't a troll thread because is kind of funny and sureal)

You changing a hole WiiU by investing time for disconnecting, reconnecting and repairing the controllers for playing another game? Because of fast loading games?
I think set wrong priority. Get a compatible fast ssd and your done.

Till now, i didnt read about any possibility to connect one controller to many consoles by bluetooth protocol.

Nintendo didn't prepare for people just owning one system, I don't think they would've considered 4 systems to one gamepad.

Minecracft "I can't answer your question, but why did you buy 4 Wii U consoles when you could've just bought a sufficiently large USB stick or portable hard drive and installed all your games onto a single console? Would be cheaper and no need to re-pair gamepads each time."
Of course, I know this, but have you ever seen how much it's so much better from speed level to play from Memory instead of the usbstick? Also, try to play supermarioworld from a Sd Card or Usbstick, you will see saves don't work.

Of course, I have 4 WiiU Gamepad because of this fact (but sorry dumbass, can't you figure out one Gamepad in front of TV is better than been obliged having 4 in front of Tv or some in Drawers??)

I don't have much experience in that department, but I find it highly unlikely that the loading difference is significant enough to make buying 4 consoles more appealing than just a single USB drive or hard drive, even an expensive high capacity one. At the very least, the loads are definitely not slower than playing from disc, which a large number of people who use Wii U use just fine without complaints.

As for saves not working, that's just plain wrong. I have many games installed on a USB in my Wii U and they all save just fine. Maybe your issues are coming from using a fake drive? If you bought a high capacity one for relatively cheap, you might've just gotten scammed, which would explain why your experience with them is so poor.

It's not only that, it's so easy to launch the wiiU and launch directly the game in one click, with the option to use Gamepad, gamepad pro or easy saves via Virtual Console or WiiU injection, so nice....This is what I wanted, even my 5 years old girl can launch the games easy.

You have a point. Nintendo didn't think ergonomy or logic on this console, but, it's still a very good console for many points, it is just it has a few big flaws.

I also managed to have my "consols" for around 40€ earch and each wiiU gamepad for around 20€, wiimote for 10€, at that price, sorry to say, but having a consol is almost better than having a 256GB Sd Card.

I am not talking of wii games, but wiiU games, me also, I have almost all my games working from SD cards with loadiine, but that is just the point, I put the ones that don't work or are slow or with issues on memory
Please have a look at https://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/Loadiine_compatibility_list If you don't understand....Just looking at a green game like Super mario 3D world will make you understand many Wiiu games have issue with loadiine, maybe via HD it's better compatibility, but I don't wan't to use external HD drive, I prefer using internal memory for the price and convenience.

System memory or do you mean the 300 limit? System memory is way too small for anything substantial, and the 300 limit can be bypassed with more than one hdd or System config tool. I can't recall if you need a separate user for those hdds, but it works. I think it's just 300 at once.

Uhh.. what?
Assuming you already had one console and gamepad (so bought another 3), and only bought a single wiimote, you spent 190 euros.
A quick Google search finds 256gb sd cards from reputable brands for £30, or about 36 euros.

In what world is 190 less than 36?

Erm...sorry...but what you write makes no really sense. Sorry. First of all, the Wii U is not the fastest console. Secondly, it's much more inconvenient to unplug/replug the consoles every time and play a different game on a different console. It's better to buy a decent external storage device, put all the games on it, and then you'll never have to unplug/replug the consoles again.

Sorry, but where is it easy like for a 5 year old girl launching a game if u need to disconnect and reconnect a hole console? Choosing a game from many displayed can also a 2 year child. BTW there is a other solution for such a case like autoboot and/or setting it to a button to hold at boot. As i know there is cbhc version for that out there.
BTW if you using multiple WiiUs, there are switches aut to there to connect multi hdmi outputs on one (also automaticaly the active one). And multiple power plug with seperate button or remote control.

Sonic Angel Knight made interesting statements​

That is the point, but as all knows, everything can be "FAKED"....So the thing would be if gamepad X connects to Console WIIU Y, then connect to gamepad X to Console X or Console Z.....well the thing would be to find a way to keep information from console Y+X+Z OR maybe find a way to make console X is Y and also console Z is Y concerning the bluetooth, as they are not powered on at the same time, it would be a no problem. THERE HAS to be parameters files somewhere kept on the gamepad or WiiU conerning bluetooth that can be exported and imported from one console to another, Does a person knowing where are those files exists in the world, who can tell? :grog:

This is madness!! In the time takes you to reconnect another console (and i assume you have them all labeled incase you connect the wrong one and taking out the gamepad resync process) your game would have loaded in less than half the time from a usb device.

Madness!!

Where did you read that I said the WiiU was the fastest console (are you a Dumbass inventing things?)
Secondly, it's much more inconvenient to unplug/replug the consoles every time and play a different game on a different console. It's better to buy a decent external storage device, put all the games on it, and then you'll never have to unplug/replug the consoles again.
Of course never said I unplug/replug every single time, just said it's not hard to switch the wiius with 3 easy wires behind, takes 10 seconds if I wish, but there is no need, I have 4 gamepads and around 7 wiimotes (there connection to a wiiU is depending on there colors), I just use them like a bit more expensive hard drives.
