    Hello Everyone,

    I've been struggling a lot throughout the Wii U hacking phase and unfortunately as you know the program and tools are not Mac OS X friendly. That being said I've managed to get by in acquiring only ready 2 play games. There was also a major issue I've been struggling with... There were a huge number of Wii U games that would crash and freeze on the Loadiine black error screen. That left me puzzled... As time went on I did some more research and concluded that Mac OS X leaves double hidden files that you cannot see on your SD card. I downloaded Hidden Cleaner Improved for my Mac and ran the program with my SD card. To my amazement it removed all the duplicate hidden files on the whole SD card. Long story short after that all Wii U games finally worked, no errors to report. Hope this helps Mac users who get errors.

    Here's Link For Program.

    If you're having problems, have you tried e.g. virtualbox and linux?

    That's one man's opinion. Linux is the best, Windows comes after that.

    I use Mac as my main os, and this is known information. It is posted on the release page of GX2. Just look into installing wine on your computer and use that via terminal. It works great for me. Occasionally I have to resort to boot camp, but for most things it's worked great for me.

    Ps. Macupdate is a terrible site filled with adware, so be careful if you're trying to download things from there.

    Mac is for photography.

    Windows is for everything else. And photography.

    Well isn't your library folder a hidden folder too. So if you don't check show library folder, doesn't that mean....

    The library folder isn't hidden actually. And the program he is referring too simply removes the hidden files from whatever source you drag into it. For example, if you have your sd card, you drag it to the program, it removes any extra hidden Mac files from it, then ejects the card.

    It was a joke. Ik the folder isn't hidden. But you can hide it in the finder settings.

    LOL!

    I also use a Mac with Snow Leopard. I use wine for a lot of the windows only tools like DiscU. The only game that seems to act weirdly for me is Sonic Lost World. The rest work fine. The games don't read those hidden files anyway, so it should not matter. Also, browsing directories with finder generates those files. Use the terminal to browse and it won't create any hidden files. I wish there was a way to disable that completely. Later version of OS X create even more hidden files.

    My ultimate choice for computing is a FreeBSD or Solaris box. I have yet to find anything better than BSD and commercial Unix, but building software is a pain sometimes. Mac OS X comes close with its BSD-like Darwin and brew/macports. As for you Winders point-and-click kiddies who don't know anything about computing or a real operating system because you're two busy pointing and clicking because you don't know how to do anything else, I feel sorry for you.

    And where did I say I use Windows? I dual-boot it, but I primarily use Ubuntu so I don't have to switch back to play most of my Steam games. Even when I do use Windows, I'm not just a "point-and-click kiddie" as you so eloquently put it because half my daily programs require the command line. And if you're gonna argue that Ubuntu is still too simple, just shut it. I don't need something as advanced as BSD.

    Wow, how sad, someone does the community good by helping Mac users and other people just shit all over his effort....Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, ChromeOS, use whatever you want and be good with it...unless someone asks for your opinion about an OS (like if they are getting a new computer and ask for your opinion on what to get) then don't go insulting people's choice on OS....I also can almost guarantee you that most folks cannot give a "universal" reason why a particular OS "sucks".. (the one I hear most about Mac is, "Mac doesn't have good game support"...well, maybe the majority of people that have a Mac don't care for gaming? If they did, they could easily just install Windows on a separate partition)
