    Update on this, I've found this can also happen if you have any .elf in /wiiu/apps/ that isn't inside a folder. See here: https://github.com/vgmoose/hbas/issues/14

    I think it hangs and interrupts the download as it tries to treat the .elf as a directory, which then in turn leaves the initial loading thread in memory preventing you from exiting. If this is it, I should have a fix in the next update, until then you can make sure all elfs are inside folders (even if they have no icon/meta)

    _macosx folder and .dsstore file are shitty file made by MacOS system.
    You don't need them.
    No one need them.

    It just shows which kind of computer use the author :)

    I am not the one who deserves any reward. i have to a degree stood on the shoulders of giants , i have played my part.. and will continue to do so , but i certainly dont do it for cash... It costs me the hosting of wiiubru which isnt much... Thanks for the thought though much appreciated. Maybe message the creator of hbas... :)

    Well, we all stand on everyone else's shoulders 'round here. I would say @pwsincd has the first shot at any appstore-related donations considering he pays for the hosting and actively maintains the repository. THAT BEING SAID if you wanna help me out, instead of donating considering buying something from the band (T-T)b (they have a pretty cool T-shirt right now).

    Bringing it up since you alluded to it... Of course though, I neither expect nor demand anything :P

    Zsnes is closed source and hasn't been updated in nearly a decade, Snes9x would be a much better choice as it's way more accurate and easier to port, but hopefully someone can port Snes9x or Snes9x Next over to the Wii U someday. :P

    I thought Snes9x was easier to port because it used only C/C++, while zsnes had x86 asm. but maybe I'm wrong, I read that long time ago.

    Yeah, Zsnes is in development hell, even the devs tell people to avoid using it because of how grossly inaccurate and they recommend Higan or Snes9x 1.53 (both use cycle-accurate APU emulation), and you're right,
    Zsnes was coded with ASM and Snes9x is coded with C/C+, making it the most widely ported Snes emulator. The problem is the Wii U is a nightmare to port for, esp. the GX2 ASM for rendering graphics. Hopefully someday we can see Snes9x on there.

    I've been meaning to do a blog or something to prove just how bad Zsnes is.

    I never used Snes9x, I always preferred zsnes. I don't know why, I liked the interface better and it was the first I used in its early development so I kept using it.
    the first emulator I tried was from 1995, without sound. I then followed development and found it interesting, that's how I started being interested in hacking scene and homebrew.
