    Well, hello guys! Im the one stuck with a SHIT mac and I know how to do this on a mac now. But your going to have to sacrifice space from your computer. Alot of space. Here is a step by step tutorial FOR MAC
    1. Go to https://www.parallels.com and click "Try Now". Write some fake email and get the program for free for 14 days.

    2. When your in the program it is going to ask you to download some sort of OS. In that case, download this: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows8ISO Just select any version of the windows 8 iso and then just download it. You do not need a product key don't worry.

    3. Now, once that huge download has finished downloading, go into parallels and click "Download my own OS" or something like that, it has a CD Icon with a blue usb or whatever. It should automatically scan and find the OS you downloaded, or you can just manually find it yourself.

    4. Once you find it, (Or your computer does) just simply click next. It might ask you for a product key, but just uncheck the product key box, and check the other one. Now you are almost done. Windows 8 is about to install on your mac. Its gonna ask you to change your language, blah blah blah, basic windows 8 stuff :)

    5. Now once EVERYTHING IS DONE you make sure YOUR MAC is connected to the same WIRELESS NETWORK as your Wii U, or this will not work.

    6. When parallels is open and finished installing windows 8 (Takes about 10 minutes) click the red pause button at the top of your mac, where the time is. And click "Configure" Now, just look for the "Network 1" or "Connections 1" tab and there will be a drop down box where you can choose what your windows 8 is connected to, because windows 8 by itself cannot connect to a wireless network on a mac. Click "Shared Network" in the drop down thingy in Network 1 and wait a few seconds.

    7. Now comes the actual SPLATOON part of this haha! Launch your Wii U and AGAIN type in these two links (Wj44.ml/k31/) and (Wj44.ml/py/) and then go into loadiine on your Wii's browser. Click on TCP GECKO + Kernel with (5.5.0-5.5.1) and do the normal process, wait for your browser to crash, and then open it again quickly and load it. It should show you an IP once you get it.

    8. Now! Your going to have to download tcp gecko dotnet ON WINDOWS 8 with the download link right here (http://www.mediafire.com/download/a8ix5ofcqh9xgb6/Debug.zip)

    9. Once everything is downloaded, extract it to a new folder on the desktop and click on the exe. It will ask you to download an extension for the exe file, do it. (Takes about 5 minutes to install) 1

    10. OKAY THIS IS THE PART WHAT EVERYONE MISSES BEFORE CONNECTING TO GECKO OPEN SPLATOON, WATCH THE NEWS AND GO TO THE PLAZA. FINALLY open the exe and type the IP in and click connect to gecko. DO NOT WORRY it should definitely take 1-9 attempts. If it does not connect, do not freak out.
    11. Have fun you little hacker, make peoples time in splatoon feel like shit. Go f*** yourself :D ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- So It still didn't work huh?
    Dont you worry about a thing because it took me 3 days to figure this out, and I have come to alot of problem solving solutions.
    1. The classic, restart your computer.
    2. Click on the red pause button at the top of the Mac (Where the time is) and click on configure. Go to the Network 1 tab and click "Wifi" in the drop down bar. Then wait a few seconds, and try to connect to gecko again.
    3. This might sound weird, but install gecko by using Google Chrome. For days Ive been trying to internet explorer to download it, but no luck (with the same options of course) and just try downloading it from google chrome. The second I did I opened the exe and it worked perfectly fine.

    If you are still having problems, dont forget to write it in the comments. I will be as active as I Can. Happy hacking -Nick

    Title is bit misleading. You're just running Windows in parallels. I appreciate the guide but there are those that will navigate to this thread looking for a mac version of tcpgecko. You may want to add "using parallels" to the tile.

    I'm not discounting your research but many on here have already done this with parallels and been successful.

    Why not just use Wine Wrapper? That is what I do on my macbook. A whole other OS is quite an overkill to use one single windows app.

    Wine did not work for almost all of my friends, so this is just another thing to do if wine doesn't work.. although I do see your point.

    Yeah, if I recall correctly I had to go into advanced and make sure some .NET frameworks were installed. If it would be helpful, I can upload my wrapped application when I get home tonight.
    The file is still like ~700 MB but much better than running another os (thats .iso in itself is what, like ~4gb?)

    Also, the nice thing is once you get it working you can just keep adding more things (like XCXGecko) set the executable to whatever and the file only grows by the size of what you added. I think a wine wrapper base size is like ~500/550 MB.

    Yeah its huge, its like 3.2GB and its a pain in the ass to have in your computer. If you could upload that file, you are a fucking life saver lmao

    @Nick Ash
    https://mega.nz/#!odwEGTTY!3GaRACeHr68Us57LxSZ7Q4NyyjmTaYQjuqcSs9ivRVE

    ~316MB zipped
    ~750MB Uncompressed

    Wineskin details:
    Wrapper version - 2.6.2
    Engine - WS9Wine1.9.9


    Tested on:
    MacBook with OS X v 10.10.5


    Like I said - if this wrapper works for you, you can 'show package' contents and add more apps (like XCXGecko) and just change the file that is executed upon opening - that way you do not need to keep adding ~500MB for each additionally wrapped app. And you do not necessarily have to change the file that is executed on opening: you can just open task manager from within and launch another executable from there.

    I'm really glad it helps.
    Last note on it (that I left out because I just got so used to hitting continue I forgot): Almost every time I connect to the WiiU I the app throws an exception - but if you just hit continue you will see that all is good and the status bar reads "Ready"

    Sure thing! Now my next goal is to some how figure out how to use speed hacks, infinite kraken, and stuff like that. You wouldent know how to do that would you?

    If I am not mistaken, in order to make codes sticky (like permanent for the game session) you need an injected code handler (which jGeckoU has) - and to convert the code to something that jGeckoU can use:
    Like
    1C399D90 000000FF

    Would become:
    00020000 1C399D90
    000000FF 00000000

    As noted here:
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/post-your-wiiu-cheat-codes-here.395443/


    Otherwise you could try a serial poke - where tcpgecko just keeps poking with the same value over and over (which should get the same result).
    I haven't played with splatoon yet - I got caught up in Xenoblade after I found the offset for the new codes (updated loadiine version) and then figured out all of the item codes are completely different (not even an offset deal) - so have just been going through and cataloging (why, I don't know- could be useful for someone).
    And then last night I got carried away with wind waker HD even though that has been thoroughly documented.

    Okay first of all, you reply like fucking sonic. Thank god you exist. So I just type those those numbers into the search thingy of tcpgecko? What would I do then? I suck at this stuff.
