    so this might have been asked but i didn't want to go through ~2000 pages of responses. I'm trying to play xenoblade with setup, but my iso is about ~7gb, which doesn't fit on my usb when it's formatted right (fat32 and whatnot). so, everyone said i had to use a program to convert it to wbfs and put it onto my usb like that, which i've done (it's 2 separate files, one .wbfs and one .wbf1, but when i try to load nintendont, it sees no ISOs or files. what am I doing wrong? does this not actually work with nintendont? and if not, how can i put the iso itself onto the usb?

    Isn't that a Wii game you're trying to load through Nintenont which is for GameCube games. That's why it will not work. Use USBLoader-GX, WiiFlow or CFG Usbloader that works with Wii games and it should work.

    Following the install steps, yet the channel won't show up in the homebrew channel. Using a normal Wii to do this. Help?

    to make something show up on wii homebrew channel you only need the correct path and naming

    basicaly
    SD:apps/nintendont/boot.dol

    you might want to renae loader.dol to boot.dol

    Strangely, CAPCOM VS. SNK 2 EO freezes when I force Progressive in Japanese version, but plays normally when I force Progressive in American version. Please correct it n the next update.

    looks like that was a special progressive mode and I only ever patched the US version:
    https://github.com/FIX94/Nintendont/blob/master/kernel/Patch.c#L3603-L3610
    I'll check out the japanese version and see if a similar hardcoded patch has to be applied.

    and fixed up, was easy enough, offset changed a bit from the US version but patch remained the same.

    Hey all,
    Using usbloader gx or nintendont from vWill on Wii U works 100%. However, if I try to run a vc inject from Wii U USB helper or the standalone VC inject app (I forget the name) nintendont errors with can't load iOS and dumps to Wii U menu. Any thoughts? Naturally, since I can still run everything vWill side, it's no biggie, but I can't stand issues I can't fix! Lol!
    Thanks in advance!

    Hello everyone ... I´m using March 11 2018 version of Nintendont ...
    I can only play on the gamepad screen, how can I play on the TV ?
    If I choose "TV mode" in the WiiU forwarder, Nintendont shows in both screens ... but then the game only appears in the gamepad screen
    what am I doing wrong?
    I´ll try with an older version to see if it works
    (sorry if I translated something wrong)

    Thank you for this wonderful utility, I can finally play pokemon coliseum and all my other games without having to worry about fitting all my saves on the one and only memory card I have, and I can even still use the link cable to hunt for shiny jarachi. What you've achieved here is truly amazing.

    Can someone help me please ive been trying to get ANY controller to work for the last two hours.

    I am trying to run it on a Wiiu - I have got games to boot, but none of my controllers work, i have wii motes, wii u pro, and mayflash adapter.

    In the menu, I can control the menu with ALL my controllers, but as soon as i boot into a game, none of them work. All the wireless controllers have 4 solid blue lights.

    I have already tried deleting all the files created by nintendont on my usb where the games are, i have also tried deleting nintendont and re-downloading the files directly from github.
    Any and all help is muchly appreciated!!!

    What is the new path to add games?
    games/ANYTHING_YOU_WANT_HERE.iso for single disc and multiple discs, games/ANYTHING_YOU_WANT_HERE/game.iso - disc2.iso ?
    Is that correct?


    EDIT:
    I read everything up to page #1940 and that's before the new update was released and there was not information on the new paths.
    Can someone give an hint! :)

    either you got bad wup files or you dont have the correct name that the injects are searching like
    SD:apps\nintendont\boot.dol

    seems its your tv that isnt compatible with the video resolution of the game you are playing which game are you trying to play? and any forced videomodes?

    are you using a wiiu vc inject or using vwii itself? what version of nintendont are you using? say the actual number.

    are you wiimotes fake/third party?

    there is no new path is the same path since version 1

    SD:games\whatever\game.iso

    if you got 2 disc games you put both isos inside the same folder and rename the first disc game.iso and second disc disc2.iso.

    You are wrong, look at the Github.
    https://github.com/FIX94/Nintendont

    That's why I asked for the new path, I'm not making things up!

    "
    Copy your GameCube games to the /games/ directory. Subdirectories are optional for 1-disc games in ISO/GCM and CISO format.
    • For 2-disc games, you should create a subdirectory /games/MYGAME/ (where MYGAME can be anything), then name disc 1 as "game.iso" and disc 2 as "disc2.iso".
      "

    You still didn't answer my question, I know how to copy my game with the 'old' method which you think is messy but is actually alot more reliable when you are dealing with tons of .ISO .

    I'm asking for the method described in my OP, the easiest way which is dropping the iso files in the 'games' folder.
    Do I need to name them with their official names, or anything would work ?

    tbh i never used that method and not even fix94 added that it was another contributer to github i would assum anyname on the iso would work inside games folder but he says 2 disc games still need a folder tough.
