    Well nintendont allowing people to play gamecube backups with the gamepad, still gets updates. Genesis plus gx got update for gamepad support, wiisxr and mupen 64 both updated with better performance and compatibility. Honestly i was just thinking about others. I noticed a guide here that explains how to use wii homebrew with the gamepad, apparently they are adding that feature, not to mention a performance boost that makes use of wii u hardware to work better. Just some ideas, could always have a poll. It seems obvious people still care about vwii homebrew, why else would people still develop homebrew on it or improve the homebrew that exist? :)

    Hey guys. I've been having an issue I can't find info about anywhere. No matter what I do, when I download from the app store 1.5, nothing ever actually installs. It shows it downloading then it refreshes and nothing has changed. When I check the SD card there is just an empty folder for the apps I attempted to download. Has anyone ever heard of this? Would be super helpful. Thanks!

    Nah It's 64GB with 50GB free. I formatted it in guiformat as FAT32. I tried with 64K and 32K clusters but both had the same issue. When I get home later I'm gonna try and format with a different tool and see if maybe it will resolve any possible corruption issues.

    Not dead :P You could say the next version is in a bit of development hell and the rise of the shinier switch homebrew app store hasn't helped it much.

    You're crashing with the porkchop error message? Does holding L/R while it starts fix anything (wipes cache)? And then the next thing to check would be if you renaming sd:/wiiu/apps prevents the crash. If it does, then it may be an installed app that's causing an issue.

    Are there emulators that work with the Gamecube controller adapter? Aside from Nintendont, of course. I'm able to virtually map GC controllers and emulate a Wii U pro controller via haxchi, but aside from Wii U games, it doesn't translate (not the right term, I know) to any other emulators (ie, genesis plus, snesx, or even vwii). Is there a trick to get it working? Or am I trying to do something that is currently not achievable?

    Thanks, in advance.

    I believe hid to vPad allows you to use the Gamecube adapter, as well as other controllers like DS3 and DS4, in any Wii U application. It does need to be rerun anytime you boot the console.

    Yes! That's exactly what I use to map GC controllers - HID to vPad. It works great for Wii U games (and Wii U virtual console games). But, it doesn't translate over to emulators. I'm guessing it's because the emulators are just forwarders to emus in vWii. I don't know.

    I am having this EXACT issue. Crashing with the pork chop message. I have cleared the cache with no effect - still crashes. What else can i do?

    If anybody is wondering (Probably not), my issue was caused by a defective SD card. I had 2 cheap ones which all worked fantastically for soft modding half a dozen other consoles but the Wii U doesn't seem to like them. Bought a legit Sandisk SD card that other people were using and it's worked great ever since!
