    I am currently trying to get Nintendont to run on my Wii U using Home-brew. It does load up but when I try to load a game it is unable to find the games folder which has the games in it. I have multiple different things but they did not work.

    Starting from the beginning, do you have the ISOs all named game.iso (and disc2.iso where applicable) and all in individual folders? And the games folder is in the root of the SD card?

    Yes, all of the ISO files have been renamed to game except disc two of Twin Snakes. I have placed them in there own folders as well. I had the games folder on the root of the sd card as well but Nintendont is unable to detect it and I am unsure why.

    Yes, it is also been converted to FAT 32.

    I would try running them on dolphin but I don't think my computer will survive if I attempt it due to it being a MacBook and not a desktop computer. I'm pretty sure the ISOs do work though because they are the same ones I used on my wii when I had Nintendont on it and not on the Wii U.

    Are the games on the SD card or a USB drive? How are you loading Nintendont? Basically what I'm asking is, when your Wii U turns on, do you just go to the homebrew loader and load Nintendont, or do you load up your vWii first, launch the homebrew channel, and then load Nintendont?

    When I load up the Wii U I go into Haxchi and then load up Mocha CFW and then I load up Nintendont.

    I did for a little bit but was a little confused with what vWii was. I am still kind of confused because for me some of the instructions are a little bit confusing to understand. Mainly installing vWii

    Might not be related to your problem at all, but just to let you know, Haxchi by itself is a CFW. You don't need to load Mocha CFW on top of it. It's like you're saying "I go into CFW, and then load up CFW".

    When I load up Haxchi it brings me to the home-brew launcher channel. It doesn't give me the option to just go to the Wii U menu by using just Haxchi

    Are you using CBHC?

    You can always exit the Homebrew loader.

    You never answered where your games are stored, on USB or sd. Are you using any wiiu features such as using the gamepad as a controller?

    Do you have your vWii hacked? Can you just go to your vWii, load up Homebrew channel and load nintendont? Again, it's a Wii app.

    First, I check if my SD card is functional. HW2Test is a good start, use it on a formatted SD card and if it checks with no errors, then is good. Second, Use Guiformat to format the card to FAT32 (If it's over 32GB) Then, follow the directory listing of how it should go.

    SD:/ Games> NAME OF GAME> game.iso
    the 2disc.iso goes in the same folder for multidisk games.

    Before putting game on sd card, find a way to verify the dump, either through Checksum Hash, SHA-1, MD5, CRC32, etc. Dolphin emulator does a good job checking for valid dumps. Then put it in the wii u, load the Vwii, go to homebrew channel, and see if it works.

    If all fails, then maybe try re-downloading the latest version of nintendont again.

    Sorry about that. I've been storing my games on an SD card, along with all of the other stuff for home-brew. I have all of my home-brew related stuff on the Wii U menu. I'm assuming when you mean vWii you mean the Wii menu on the Wii U, I am currently trying to get that set up but I am a little bit confused with the instructions of how to do it, mainly on how to actually install it using WUPHax. Also yes I am using the gamepad as a controller

    Wuphax instructions are very clear. Follow them exactly as they are https://github.com/FIX94/wuphax . Keep in mind that nintendont is a Wii Homebrew app.

    Oh, now I see what I was doing wrong. I was opening the mii channel on the Wii U menu and not the wii menu.

    You installed Haxchi with the default settings... which just launch the homebrew channel when you tap the icon. If you take a look at the Haxchi installer you downloaded, check the config.txt file. It should say this originally:

    a=fw.img
    b=sysmenu
    default=wiiu/apps/homebrew_launcher/homebrew_launcher.elf

    Modify to:

    a=fw.img
    default=sysmenu
    b=wiiu/apps/homebrew_launcher/homebrew_launcher.elf

    Save, and then re-install Haxchi with this modified file. When you'll want to boot in CFW, just tap the Haxchi icon after booting the Wii U. No need to press any button. If you want to load the homebrew channel, of course, you'll have to hold the B button immediately after tapping the Haxchi icon (which should be a homebrew channel icon, if I'm not mistaken).
