    So I was just tinkering with the NWF and I found out how to run your games on your own Wii U. It's not really all that hard but here is how to do it for people that want to experiment with the Web Framework:

    Requirements:
    -Wii U with Loadiine
    -A dumped game made with Nintendo Web Framework (EXAMPLES)
    -The Nintendo Web Framework (Not required but good to have ofcourse)

    How to:
    -Make a little project in the NWF or get one of Nintendo's demos.
    -Grab your dumped nwf game and go into its /content/app folder, this is basically where you put all your stuff
    -Replace the files there with your project files
    -Run the game

    Basically the nwf games have a loader which is in the /code directory and that loader just loads plain html and javascript so it's very easy to make your own things in it or to fiddle with existing games.

    Now you probably won't be able to access online services because of Loadiine's restrictions on that
     
    GamerUnity and Voxel like this.

    Gambia, The
    It would be cool if you could include some Games that use the nwf so users can experiment with these.

    Mostly trying to show this off so potential devs that got scared off by buying a dev kit can experiment with the Nintendo Web Framework still
