Hi everyone, as the title says, I just want to factory reset my gamepad, or clear it's internal memory, ONLY the gamepad, from what I can see, it saves icon data from installed software for the quick start menu, also there is the TV remote option, that can still be used when the console is completely disconnected, so these settings must be stored somewhere

About the TV remote option, I now use a different TV from a local brand and it isn't compatible with this function, I tried but I really don't care about it anymore, I use the TV button for the Swap DRC homebrew app and the remote controls appearing on the screen every time I press it are really annoying, I just want to disable it but it seems that there's no way of doing it

About the icons on the quick start menu, I've installed some custom forwarders for a couple of homebrew apps and it always shows old icons there, I've tried everything, disabling it, uninstalling and reinstalling the forwarders, enabling it again, in different orders but nothing seems to work, I find this quick start menu really useful so I don't want to just disable it

I know it may sound weird, I looked everywhere but I couldn't find any info about this, as I said before, I tried everything, even desycning it, removing the battery, etc., but nothing seems to work, I don't want to factory reset the console only for this and I don't think I can find some other Wii U console near to test

There must be a way, has anyone else had an issue with this?

    I'd say there would be more PS5 exclusives...if people could actually buy PS5s.

    I mean, if no-one can buy a PS5, and thus is stuck with PS4 (Pros), then companies would still see some profit from developing PS4 games with PS5 upgrades; meanwhile, if they developed a PS5 game, then everyone who can't get that console won't buy that game, especially at launch.

    Nah every console starts early with low libraries

    well theyre churning them out as fast as they possibly can, not like Xbox or PC are faring much better with the chip shortages

  • Xzi @ Xzi:
    and games still take 4-6 years to develop regardless, so its not like sony can conjure up new exclusives out of thin air

    Makes me wonder what they have now and are actually hiding from the public

    I hope in the next 5 years they can move on to even more realistic skin renders and not just make characters look like Shiney clay molds
