    So I made this quick tutorial for injecting a Loadiine save file to Wii U memory using Saviine:

    For the game Zelda TP HD (as an exemple):
    -Install the game on your USB HDD using WUPInstaller
    -Launch the game (important!) to create a save file to the Wii U memory.
    -Quit the game
    -On PC, download Saviine and start dump.bat (saviine1.1b\server\dump.bat) and close it just after. (It will create a folder saviine_root )
    -In this "saviine_root" folder, create a "inject" folder. And inside this "inject" folder, create a new folder named with the title ID of your game. (For Zelda TP, I created a "00050000-1019E600" folder.)
    So I have: saviine1.1b\server\saviine_root\inject\00050000-1019E600\

    -Now inside of this "00050000-1019E600" folder, just copy your Loadiine save (must be "unique mode" and not "shared mode" )
    For Zelda TP, I copy both "80000001" folder and "common" folder inside of the "00050000-1019E600" folder.

    -On your Wii U, launch Saviine
    -Enter your computer's IP address and press X to return to home menu
    -On your PC, launch inject.bat
    -On Wii U, launch your USB game
    -On PC you have to choose your save to inject.
    -Done :)

    Thanks. Am I right in thinking that if your existing saves are in common mode, you just rename "c" to "common", and "u" to whatever your user id is? Going from memory, forgive any mistakes...

    I have never had the need to initialize save data though. I just inject the save in the first go.

    there's already a tutorial linked in the "wiiu usb" first post.
    but thanks anyway for helping other users :)

    initializing the save data is maybe to "know" your gameID and your UniqueID?
    dumping the save from that game generates the proper folder's names. Then just move the generated folder from "dump" into the "inject" folder and copy loadiine's savegame inside.
    that's the way I wrote it in my tutorial, but there are different method. If you know your gameID, you can create the folder manually. If you use unique mode, you don't need to know your UniqueID, etc.

    I don't remember quite well, but doesn't Loadiine itself handle the saves with the TitleID already?
    Or I might be confusing it with another app.

    yes, it does if you select "unique mode". (saved in "80000000x" and "common")
    by default it's using "shared mode" with all account using the same loadiine save (saved in "u" and "c") to keep compatibility with previous loadiine version.
    switching the option doesn't move the savegame, but at least you can get your ID with it.

    How do I know my uniqueID? Is it 80000001 if I only have one user in my wii u? If I have one save in loadliine wich uses 80000004, should i use that instead?

    probably an issue with space in folder names.
    if you have spaces in folder or filename, when you write a command line add quotes around it
    command argument1 "file path/argument2"

    here as there's no argument, just be sure all your path to the command doesn't contain any space.

    Also I noted Windows 10 does have some folders without execution rights (my documents, downloads, etc.) don't run them from here.

    [​IMG]
    not sure what I did though ^^''
    I moved my saving folder to E:/ instead of E:/xxxxxx/xxxxx/xxx (there was no spaces or accentuatd char in the path), tried to dump my save (had a popup for windows firewall (already had one with the inject bat), then tried again to inject. weird.
    (I'm on win10 pro 64 btw)
