    is is possible to load homebrew launcher without the gamepad using haxchi?
    i need to send my gamepad away to repair and it may take well over a month until i get it back.
    i already set loadiine.ovh to autoboot, but i noticed that if no gamepad is present it'll give me the "fsgetmountsource failed" error.
    loading miimaker doesn't work either without the pad.
    if i load hb launcher through haxchi should i expect the same result? (because i havent bought the ds game yet)
    can someone try haxchi or cbhc without turning the gamepad on? (before i buy brain training)

    Sadly you need the gamepad. I tried to use my pro controller and Wii mote but nothing worked In the hbl menu I needed to touch.

    Edit. Used haxchi that took me into hbl idk about cbhc.

    the only reason why i needed to access the hb launcher, is because i wanted to use my dualshock3 as a replacement for the gamepad.
    but i found out that you need them both to be turned on, or else the ds3 wont work.
    i also didn't found any problem navigating the hb launcher with the wiimote, my problem was loading "hb launcher" with the browser while the gamepad was turned off.

    Ahhh OK sorry very tired too much Zelda. Biggest flaw of the wiiu it's too damn dependent on the gamepad

    yeah, but i'm still curious if cbhc/haxchi will boot or not with the gamepad turned off, and no one was able to give me a clear answer

    Cbhc will boot without a gamepad. Haxchi should too if you edit the meta.xml
