    Hi to all!

    Just successfully softmodded my WII-U (Homebrew loader through Haxchi)

    Everything just works fine, but....

    I do not want to do a ColdbootHaxchi and I find it a bit tedious to start Haxchi with a button pressed to start Mocha.

    Is it possible to buy another game from the Haxchi List and install Haxchi a second time with a different config (and icon) so that one starts Homebrew, the other Mocha?

    Regards,

    Kirky

    Why mocha? HaxChi can do everything you need.

    Yes, you can have more than one haxchi. Just make sure you don't use the same game as before. You can even use WUP installer to install a 2nd DS to sigpatched sysNAND and then install Haxchi.

    Haxchi right now starts my Homebrewloader (how it is supposed to be)
    and I can start various programs like mocha or simplesigpatch via holding a button while starting Haxchi.
    It is not exclusively about mocha. Instead of holding buttons while starting Haxchi, I just want another Haxchi with a different config.
    One starts Homebrew Loader, one starts mocha, another starts simplesigpatch and so on.

    Just curious if this is possible...

    Sounds possible, but also sounds expensive as each install requires another purchase from eshop and you can't play the game. Hey, it's your money, have at it.

    unless you get a haxchi compatible game from nus. You can load it up on a sigpatched sysnand or any CFW.

    Hmmm.... I think it does not work, or I am making some mistake:

    Bootet WII-U (No Coldboot Haxchi)
    bought "Kirby: Mouseattack" and "Yoshi: Touch and Go" (both PAL) from eshop
    Started Haxchi which in turn started Homebewloader
    Started Haxchi Installer 2.5u1

    and...

    the list contained only "Kirkby Mass attack" the one already used for Haxchi

    the other two games are not listed...

    Regards,

    I thought about this a few times.
    To run anyone of the WUP installed DS game Haxchis we would need to run the eShop Haxchi once after every coldboot to enable sigpatches otherwise they won't work, right?

    But could we do the following on a fresh Wii U?
    1. Buy Yoshi Touch & Go in the eShop
    2. Install Haxchi into Yoshi Touch & Go and use this for sigpatches
    3. Download any other DS game from the list via NUS and install via WUP installer
    4. Install Haxchi into 2nd game putting U-Paint as default in Haxchi config
    5. Change titleID, icon and bootscreen via ftpiiu to make it look like U-Paint
    6. Install the same DS game again via WUP installer (because we changed the titleID of the already installed one before)
    7. Install Haxchi into 3rd game putting Flappy Bird U as default in Haxchi config
    8. and so on ...
    This way we could build unlimited forwarders to any homebrew just as we like. We only would need to run the first Haxchi game (Yoshi Touch & Go in this case) once after every coldboot, right?

    Right. Or just install CBHC and you won't ever have to run the first HaxChi. Just hide the icon so you don't accidentally delete it.

    Maybe I do this one day. Dimok's FAT32 USB support could be a reason. But thanks so far, now I can make all forwarders I want by myself. :)
