    Yes, just use the officially licensed PC to WiiU Adapter!

    Hahahahahaha

    The only method that is available to the public now unfortantely is the loading of games from an SD Card. A decent SD card about 32GB and put the games on it you like. If you run out of space you and always just delete a game and copy the new one to the SD Card. Shouldn't take no more than 15 minutes top. I have a a 128GB card and only play about 2 games lol.

    You could theoretically go over a network, but I don't think you'd be happy with the results

    Loadiine originally worked via network only - and the only game that worked was nesremix. So if you only want to play nesremix, have at it.

    When I load loadiine I get this error: missing all OS specific addresses. What does that mean?

    Update Loadiine to the latest nightly version, including the .bin payload on the webserver.

    How are you launching loadiine? Via online or locally hosted?

    This is an ability a lot of development kits of various consoles have, including the Wii U AFAIK. I don't recall ever having issues of an actual game running slowly when I used to do it with a 360 devkit, but the screen recording was slow over the network. It would probably work very well on the Wii U, the problem would just be implementing it so it worked on retail systems with a kernel exploit.

    Dunno why network "streaming" has been removed from Loadiine.
    Theoretically that is what we all want: Play games from USB drives.
    Just use Rasp, NAS or router and the party can begin. Should be Gigabit LAN though.
    I'd wish USB Loader GX would have that feature as well.

    Anyway, I guess this won't ever happen since the Wii (U) doesn't have Steam's Streaming abilities. So it need's the game complete in order to launch it. In other words: All 15 GB of Watch Dogs have to be moved over LAN into the Wii U (and to which place?) before it launches or am I wrong? That was the reason only NES Remix was playable obviously.
