    ok So i bought a 32 gb wii u for 50 bucks. I have a 32 gb sd card and I read had to be fat32 1 tb formatted external wd drive. I used the browser exploit to run homebrew mocha etc. Got wup installer gx
    I been reading watching youtube etc.
    Loadline I read outdated but everything is loadline ready. But if the loadline file is bigger than 4 gb and the sd card has to be fat 32 what do you do?
    I a wud file 4.04gb but that is to big for fat 32 1tb ehd soooooooo I read to split it into a wud package or wud compressor or jwtool or tik file etc..... but what does that mean?
    Can someone please translate for simple little me?

    You don't put wuds on the Wii U, they can't be used directly and have to be extracted to code/content/meta for Loadiine use or converted to .app for installation with wupinstaller by using NUSPacker.

    Just use USB helper for all of your games.. . The all come in WUP format .. Put the game in the SD card in the install folder .. Then install it using WUP installer gx on your WIIU . Always to your external hard drive!

    if you have wup installer i would use usb helper it's so easy just download to computer ,put the games,dlc,updates in the install folder on the sd card,run wup installer ,done
    wup installer doesn't work with loadiine ready games
    wup installer channel has to be installed on your usb or it won't work (WUP installer GX2 Channel has a bug that won't allow it to run from sysNAND if you have a USB HD plugged in)
    Avoid characters such as "é", ™, "_", or ®. or wup installer wil not install it

    Then that game is not in the correct format to use. Just forget it and use USB Helper (google USB Helper reddit workaround) all files will be broken down into less than 4 gb.
