    Hi All,

    relatively new to the Wii u Scene and trying to work out which method would be better to use....

    Does this new USB option of loading games still have compability issues with loading certain games or is it 100%?

    USB loading is 100% but you can only load games that are on disc and eshop. You also have region lock too.

    Loadiine has region free but not 100%.

    I recommend you use USB for games that are online/long loading and loadiine for eshop games, VC injections, and region free.

    You don't need a usb if you have a 32gb wiiu with enough free memory. You can install usb ready wuds to your system memory and then move them to an hdd later.

    You have a 100% compatibility with this method and loading times are faster than loadiine, the only problem is that there is no region free. You can keep loadiine for vc games or as xtheman666 said, keep it for out of region games.

    I use loadiine for all my VC titles and I use Brazilian USB for the games that I actually play all the time. Just one less click is all.

    Hi everyone!

    I would like to ask: from where the games are downloaded with this new method using the JNUSTool?
    Are they donwloaded from the official source just like when you buy a legit game on the online store?

    What about when the wiiu became obsolete, and the probability of shutting down this download servers?
    The source for this games collapse, right?

    Yes the games are downloaded from nintendos own cdn (content delivery network) so when they shut that down we will no longer have access. By that time though most of the games will be available on various nefarious websites.

    If Nintendo decides to shutdown NNID, 3DS will be also killed and affected by this.
    So, i don't expect NNID being shutdown anytime soon.

    This is an old thread BTW. You can do everything you need with CFW. No need for loadiine.
