    I tried to inject " The Legend of Zelda Majoras Mask " from a loadiine release into my legit Super Mario 64 EUR Version with WiiUInstallerPacker,
    It creates all files, i also edited the original meta to change Game Name and edited Icon
    everything is great , i also can install it to my sysnand via dimok's cfw

    I can start and play the game, but after a while it freeze and i need to restart WiiU
    any suggestions??
    i tried the whole procedure with Wave Race 64 and it work perfect no freezes so far


    EDIT:
    This time i injected into Donkey Kong 64 and now it works
    i think the problem was that the Original Rom file from Mario 64 is (8.388.608 Bytes) and from Wave Race 64 too
    But from Donkey Kong 64 the Rom size is (33.554.432 Bytes) like The Legend of Zelda Majoras Mask
    maybe im wrong but it works now :grog:

    Correct. You should always use a base game with the same or larger size as the ROM you want to inject. Donkey Kong 64 is considered to have the highest compatibility with injections and I believe is the largest VC N64 game.

    For reference, these are the games considered to have the best compatibility for all VC systems:

    I wouldn't be surprised if the people who made them didn't even bother checking them.
    I mean, just look at the N64 inject compatibility list. 9/10ths of the games on the list don't work.

    Could be that the base games were dumped with ddd, back when that was the only choice. The app.xml and cos.xml from DDD don't seem to play nice as an installed title.
