    I have just installed Haxchi which is WAY easier than Internet then loadiine I might add.

    2 Questions regarding Haxchi
    1) Can I play games now from a USB drive (as well as my SD Card)?
    2) Can I launch games directly to my "dash" or "home menu" since installing Haxchi?

    Simple, when you try to install it it will give an error and mention sig-patches. Also, if the game was released on a disk, it does not need sigpatches, as it has a disk ticket and can be installed easily.

    Just select the USB option when installing and it will install to the hard drive! Just remember that in order to install games to the hard drive, it will have to be formatted by the wii u, meaning ALL DATA ON IT WILL BE LOST! If you already have files on there/use the usb drive for other things, there should be a better usb loading method soon and by soon i mean nobody really knows when but people are working on it so

    How do I install? I was downloading the games to the drive, I wanted to run them from...

    Do I not install them like a Windows file, by double clicking, lol?

    No, you put them on a SD card in the "install" folder, and plug the SD card in the Wii U.

    funkii-ui freezes when it is downloading for me. Any suggestions on how to remedy? I mean am I attempting to much? I am trying to get roughly 200GB at one time :D --> Or should I just do 3 - 4 games at a time?

    It has been hung on this screen for 90 minutes

    Why don't you try to download one game, and see if it stops freezing.

    It has successfully downloaded 13 games, just froze now. This is the second time it has frozen on me at > 10 games. Has not been the same game either time (I thought that to rule out maybe a bad download or link or something to ONE game)

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    What is the difference between this one and the one I am using?

    USB helper has a nice gui and all kinds of stuff. (checks if downloads are good, can download dlc and updates, tells you if you need cfw to play a game or not, ect) Just try it out and see if you like it

    I can not figure out how to download multiple games at a time with this. Is that possible?

    You're probably just doing too much at a time, just restart and select that same game again and it should continue the download.
    I don't think so, stick with funkiiui. Just dont do too much at a time :P

    You say download on every game you want. It loads it in a queue. Then you download them all at once. Works great
