    so from what ive heard, to use the brazilian method to install wii u games on hdd, it needs to be on .wud format, right?
    i'd like to know, .wud files are equivalent of .3ds files or .cia ?
    also, i'd like to know if there is a way to convert loadiine ready games to .wud.
    thanks

    Actually, the games need to be in "eshop" format, is easily found with downloaders like NUSgrabber.
    You only need a WUD for the ticket file, that will allows the "eshop" game to be installed.

    so, does that mean that, so far, only games you physically own can be installed through brazilian method?

    No, that means that games that exist in WUD format or that someone dumped the tickets AND exist on eshop can be installed.

    Unfortunately, some games like Mass Effect 3 are impossible to find for the NTSC region.

    The WUD version? Damn, guess I'll never be able to find a WUD dump of it :unsure: I tried that one site, no dice.

    Yes, but that doesn't make it easier though, so far, all I've seen are EUR dumps, which doesn't do NTSC users much good. There's also that one ticket site, and I see that there is
    one for ME3, but the size is 3 KB and not 1 KB so, IDK >.>

    Edit: Turns out it was the update for the game. Gonna try something.

    Edit 2: "TMD wrong, no title" or something, yeah, I'm gonna have to find a way.

    Disc tickets aren't console specific, so there's no chance of being banned. Nintendo will just think you're playing a physical copy of the game.

    what i mean is, are they disc specific?
    So if two person play the same ticket at the same time, they could get banned?

    WUDs have more use then just tickets. The latest version of DiscU can convert WUDs into the eShop-installable format.
