    So im trying to download color splash on my wiiu, but whenever i start up loadiine, the game is not there. I named the folder correctly with "Paper Mario Color Splash [CNFE01]", and i have the content, code, and meta folders. Any Ideas? Thanks in advance.

    Savage, ^^^
    Try cheking the content of those 3 directories in case you have another sub directory (double folder then the content) it has happened to me. Are all of your other games working or just color splash having the issue?

    I checked everything and there were no duplicates. I also formatted my sd card with FAT32 and im still getting the same result. Im pretty new to this and the only other game i downloaded was captain toad and that was yesterday, but it worked fine.

    Something is wrong in your directory structure. Post how you have you game setup on the SD

    Like this or use screenshots:

    Sd:/wiiu/games/mario....

    so
    sd:\wiiu\games\Paper Mario Color Splash [CNFE01]\meta
    sd:\wiiu\games\Paper Mario Color Splash [CNFE01]\content
    sd:\wiiu\games\Paper Mario Color Splash [CNFE01]\code

    If you do and you have the right meta files in that folder like the images and xml files it should deff show up.
    Please post a screenshot with your SD setup.

    Your issue will be that the MAC has not formatted it into Fat32, it's probably Exfat.
    Your SD card must be in Fat32 and typically in 64 clusters in size.

    Just get another formatter or try and format again with the mac formatter into FAT not exFat.

    It is already set to FAT32, but I haven't set it to 64 clusters. I don't think it not being set to 64 cluster would make it not show up though.

    Use guiformat to format your SD card to Fat32 and 64 clusters, worked perfectly for me afterwards.

    Also add both games in, and see if toad works and if splash fails to load. If both are in the same location they should be visible.

    Don't think this is too much of an issue in Loadiine, but other Wii/Wii U homebrew don't seem to play too nicely with the .DS_Store and ._ files created by macOS' Finder program.

    I had this issue, and used a Terminal command to wipe them from my SD Card, but it is probably easier to use a GUI program to do it. Search Google for "._ remover."

    I'm having a similar problem with paper mario color splash. The game shows up in loadiine. But it won't play. I get this error:

    Anyone know what the problem is?

    are you using the same region game as your wiiu. most loadiine games play fine out of region but with color splash you need to change some files to get it to work on another region.

    Get Wup installer Y mod and the game in installable format (You can find it on that wii u iso site).
    Copy the installable files to the install folder
    Launch Mocha and then launch Wup installer Y mod and install. Your game should be their.
