    Hi,
    Recently I saw in Wii U USB Helper that the option to get Gamecube games was added.
    But, I heard you still need the game's ISO file in order to make it work.

    Can somebody explain me how it works? Do I really need to provide the ISO file?
    Where do I place the ISO file in order for the app to use it for the game?
    Are the pre-made assets consistent, or there's a scenario where for example if I choose one game it will make the banner VC-style and if I choose another game it will make it with Nintendont logo?
    Will it reverse L&R with ZL&ZR, like the option given in the WiiVC script?

    Thanks from ahead :D

    It doesn't really let you download gamecube games, it pretty much convert your gamecube Iso that you have already "ripped" and turns it into a wii u installable format.

    pfftt i don't know how it works other than you drag and drop the Iso where the program tells you. i think it will be better to ask at the Wii U USB Helper thread.

    OK, still thanks.
    If I won't get any answer on those questions, I will try asking in the Wii U USB Helper thread

    I think it still uses the saves from the SD card.

    Nintendont emulates the all memory card , not just a save of a single game :'(
    I don't want to start again paper Mario for gamecube , 'cause it's not so short

    "With Gamepad Support", you mean using the Gamepad as a controller and as the screen?

    I's a .raw file , It means that Nintendont is emulating the whole gamecube Memory card , because the Wii u doesn't have the GameCube savecard slot to use the original Memory card

    I've experienced with Nintendont and iirc it makes a raw file for every single game.

    About gc saves: just create a 'saves' folder on root of your wiiu' sd and put raw file of your game inside it (note that raw file must be named as game's id that you wanna use the save - let's say, for example, you wanna use Super Mario Strikers' save, since it's game id is G4QE, the raw's file name must be 'G4QE.raw'). Use Dolphin emulator to manage your Memory Card .raw files.

    For GC/Wii injection, use this: https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-wiivc-injector-script-gc-wii-homebrew-support.483577/ or just download an already converted game from sites that allow iso downloads (which you must find on your own).

    No need to convert it, since converted gc games with script from url i showed here don't work that way: just make sure that .raw file just have the save of the game which you'll use for. For that, use built-in Dolphin emulator's Memory Card managment system to remove all saves that are inside it and just keep the save you need for converted gc game.
