I can't fit Bayo 2 on my SD card and I don't really have any spares around. Is it possible to FTP it or something to my HDD? I can't move my HDD to my PC for transfer due to it's just gonna change the file system and reformat my drive.

the problem is that games have to be indexed, otherwise they won't appear on the home menu. simply transferring them to the hdd won't work.

You must be able to fit the game onto your SD card in order to be able to install it using WUP Installer GX.

for the game to actually function you have to install it throuch wup installer and sadly wup installer can only read from sd

It's probably possible to extract the game on PC, delete the contents of the content folder, repack to installable format (with the original titlekey), install that, and supply the original content folder via FTP -- but is it really worth the effort? :)

how big is your sd card and how big is bayo2? you could try transfering everything from sd card to your pc leaving only the nessessary files to run wup installer. maybe that will free up enough space. then after install copy everything back.

what may be possible is to install an update, don't know if one exists for that game, then decrypting the game itself on pc and transferring the game to usb01/usr/title/00050000/title id the update will go in the same location except replace 00050000 with 0005000e .

I think bayo2 doesn't have an update, when I installed it no update sequence was triggered and I played it many times without any message of an update

Ok I found a spare card but I have to move stuff off it. I'm gonna just try and empty the card and put the game/wii u files on there and see what happens.

EDIT: Yup it worked. Thanks anyway.

    I suppose you have to resort in buying the components for yourself, after all they cost little.

    USB is fine, but shouldn't it be replaced with bulky, hard to use cables and all sorts of proprietary male-female connector port shapes?
