    It depends on which wads.
    If it's for Virtual Console Games, then you can just use whatever .wad. Avoid .wads that can cause a banner brick though.
    If you want to use injects, my advice is just inject them yourself without changing banner and you'll be fine.

    I use the same VC wads as I did for the normal Wii and it worked just fine for the Wii U's vWii.
    The only thing is PAL/NTSC issue on vWii. You can easily bypass it by using Wiiflow.

    I've installed tons of wads of all different kinds and have been fine, VC, Wiiware, Homebrew forwarders. I would say it should be fine, just stay away from VC injects... those things are always sketchy.

    Thank you for the help but i still have some questions and yes its for Virtual Console:


    How do i know if the banner of the .wad has the correct image size so i don't get a bannerbrick?
    What are Injects?

    As in the vWii stickies, installing WADs presents a risk for bricking, even VC and Wiiware.

    I have plenty of VC wads installed on my vWii with no issue. It's fine.

    The only wads you need to be careful with are forwarders - only use forwarders designed for vWii. And obviously don't mess with your IOSes.

    Don't forget that if you want to use different region VC games, you need to patch the wad file before installing.
