    Other games work but whenever Color Splash loads up, as soon as a little bit of the white comes down I get an error has occurred. I would appreciate some help.

    We need more information like what region is your wiiu what region is the game ect if the game is from a different region to the wiiu you need to change a file in the game to get it to work. See this thread for more info or check the 10 billion other threads all with this problem https://gbatemp.net/threads/fix-color-splash-eu-fix.442986/

    Are you sure you have the usa mario paper?
    If you have the eur, then do that:
    In the cos.xml file, add "-region EUR":
    <argstr type="string" length="4096">main.rpx -region EUR</argstr>

    If there is a folder named "US_French", then, you have the usa version. The Eur one have italian, german, etc.

    You aren't looking deep enough. Look around, it isn't that deep.

    EU version works fine here on us wii u . Loadiine doesn't care about regions even if some games are known to have compatibility issues.

    Get a clean dump it works for me

    Make sure u have content meta code and US files inside content/mess if u have us version

    Yes they do, but sometimes they need little compatibility fixes. This one needs that change in cos.xml. Another game may need a different small change.

    1 there is zero reasons not to update your wiiu to 5.5.1 as that works with the forthcoming Iosu hack.

    2. Paper Mario color splash won't work on such a low firmware.

    3. Why the fu%k do you not have the latest version of loadiine_gx2
