    Hey guys!
    I'm looking for a people who can help me with porting a Wii U game to Wii.
    So the game is Just Dance Wii U [JPN]. It is almost fully copy of Just Dance 2014 (which is available for Wii). The interface is recycled from Just Dance 2014, GUI recycled from Just Dance 2014, and almost everything was recycled from Just Dance 2014 + they both have UbiArt Framework engine. But Just Dance Wii U contains some different songs, japanese songs. So I need a help on this, maybe someone can help me?

    P.S. I'm not sure I posted this topic in the right category, so please, if any moderator notices that, please move it to the right category.

    Porting a straight up commercial Wii U game back to the Wii is not going to happen -- that is probably a years long job for absolutely no gain. Backporting the songs from one game to the other, especially if they are as closely related as you say, on the other hand is a possibility which is helped by both systems being somewhat modern.
    Not as many people have hacked the Just Dance series compared with other music games like Guitar Hero and Rock Band so you will probably have to do some work. Not entirely sure where to point you right now though -- you are likely going to need to learn game hacking and how the Wii and possibly Wii U works to get far in this. I don't know how the wii version works and a video does not help so much. For the classic guitar hero approach there will likely be 2 components. 1) the audio track and 2) the button press list, 3) would be if you wanted to alter text and graphics rather than just have the song. Here though it looks like there are dancer animations as well, possible specific to each song and that could be fun to port across depending upon the resolution.

    Is there any DLC you can look at for the Wii game? If so it will likely contain little other than the song, animations and movement list. Pull one of those apart.

    Just Dance components are: a) WEBM Video (480p for Wii and 720p for other consoles) 2)the audio track. Sometimes WEBM video is extraction of the dancer (dancer and mask for him) and background is rendered by engine, but sometimes WEBM video is dancer with background already rendered into a video.

    Amount of songs in Just Dance Wii U is less than in Just Dance 2014

    Dude, it's Just Dance. The game barely ever actually uses your motion input in any meaningful or accurately measured way. Find a video of someone playing the songs you want in-game and just dance in front of the video. It's the same basic experience.

    I was totally expecting a whole different game and start to claim why this cannot be done.

    But is Just Dance.

    I'm out.

    OP: As said above, go and watch youtube vids for the songs, they will do (I even do that, the experience is VERY similar).

    @Dartz150 , @YumeMaxx , ew no. You won't find all of them on youtube, + half of them would be muted due to copyright issues.
    + if that isn't possible yet, maybe I can somehow port some songs to JD14?
