    Hello all,
    Here is a little application I wrote that will copy your extracted WiiU games to SD card in proper loadiine fashion.

    Usage is simple - fill in all the details and click Go. Nothing fancy (yet) but does its job as far as I can tell.

    Here is the usage:

    v1.1 uploaded - bug fix
    v1.2 uploaded - added check to ensure proper copy was done, cleared text when done
    v1.21 uploaded - added sanity checks, allows user to cancel before copying
    v1.3 uploaded - added basic progress bar
    v1.4 uploaded - now uses loadiine v4 file structure!
    v1.5 uploaded - uses meta folder, new look and more automatic functions
    v1.51 uploaded - added gameid and check for free space


    This may be the last version, I really want to fix the progress bar but every time I start to research I get lost in code :( It's doing what I intended from the start though for me and that was my goal, if someone else gets benefit from this app then that's an awesome bonus!

    Can I use a HDD as well? SD Cards are far too slow and far too expensive.

    Nope, the exploit requires an SD card.

    Only for SD due to loadiine only supporting SD, but technically the program will do it :)

    On a progress note, I may turn this into a full on Wii U game manager. Got the gears turning but no code just yet. Will keep this thread updated!

    You and @Mr. Mysterio should do a collaboration project, this would actually fit right in with UWizard

    Great idea! I'll try to do that after I add gecko. Unfortunately, it's taking me a lot longer than I thought because I need to catch up on the school I missed while I was sick, which really cuts down my free time.

    I'm a beginner coder, I use visual basic for now and I've never done a collaboration but I'd consider it :)

    What does this mean? Is this release usable or should we stay away until its fixed?
    Maybe add a short description of what was fixed in the 2 different versions, its unclear if this 1.1 release is the initial release or a "fixed" version.
    Thanks for this great idea.

    Nice! Seems pretty cool. Escpecially for the people that stayed on 5.3.2 and then couldn't figure out Loadiine.

    Nice work.

    Sorry, I clarified in the OP. It was early in the morning when I posted that, my mistake!

    1.1 is the download link in the OP and it should have that bug fixed.

    How long is typical to wait for files to be considered done transferring?

    Its using the normal Windows copy process, based on size and the speed of the SD card.

    I'm working on a progress bar for my next feature :)
    For now, it at least verifies the copy was done and clears the text.

    Are you saying that 1.1 clears the text when its done copying? Or your next version?
    Because Ive been transferring WiiSportsClubWiiU and its only around 700mb and its been 30min and the text is still on the input fields in your program...

    v1.2 does that. There is a readme in the zip file, it contains the changelog. also the 1st post will have some basic changelog info.

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

    Interesting...I'll see if i can reproduce it. I think its related to the way I'm displaying the message, I'll look into it.
