    OurLoader 1.0
    OurLoader : The first region free disk loader for Wii U

    OurLoader is an easy tool for loading out-of-region games (disk only) : It allows you run Japanese games on American Wii U , European games on Japanese Wii U , etc...

    FAQ

    How i can download OurLoader ?

    The latest release is here or on the Homebrew App Store

    How i can use OurLoader ?

    1. Insert the disc from different region into the Wii U.

    2. (recommended step)

    Mount disk by trying to load the disk from the HOME Menu (you will have an error).

    3. Then, start the app and press A to continue. The game should start as if it weren't region-locked.

    Who have created OurLoader ?

    OurLoader is developed by myself

    OurLoader is based on Wii U hello world , DDD and easy_lib (thanks @rw-r-r-0644)

    OurLoader use patch from @QuarkTheAwesome , @wj444 and @rw-r-r-0644

    Where i can found OurLoader source code ?

    GitHub available here

    Where can I found more information ?

    There is a WiiUbrew wiki page here


    Is there a french version of OurLoader ?

    Yes , just here.

    I like so much this homebrew , do you accept donations :3 ?

    No , but tell your friends about OurLoader and like this post and i will be happy !

    Is there BETA versions for OurLoader ?

    Not actually

    If you have tested a game , and it don't work write this form.

    Where i can find the old thread ?

    Just here (Don't post anything please).

    Can we use OurLoader to load other region games that are installed in NAND/USB HDD ?

    No

    Does all games works ?

    Most games work but some games are known to doesn't work like Super Mario 3D World (due to game files) . Same as Loadiine .

    Does OurLoader will be updated soon ?

    No , OurLoader devloppement stopped .
    I accept changes from other developers (Pull Requests)


    Is there a better method ?

    Yes , it's called regionhax . It allows out-of-region titles on Hard Drive and USB but it's much harder and can brick your Wii U .

    Is there an easier method ?

    No.

    I have an other question.

    Post your question below this post :)

    Do I have to do step 2?

    How does this work? Disable checks? That shouldn't be possible...

    Yes you need to do step two that is why it's on the list. If you don't do step two it does not work

    Just a heads up when I tried Project Zero (only game so far) I didn't do step 2 and it loaded up perfectly fine. I'll even make a video of it later. I went straight to homebrew and loaded OurLoader, but this might be the case for only this game.

    Step 2 increase chances of loading
    It's optional but recommended

    No, because once I signed the NDA I could no longer work on any sort of reverse engineering projects on the U...

    @Coc4tm Can we use OurLoader to load other region games that are installed in NAND/USB HDD ?

    Theoretically, yes.

    But the OP says some games won't work because you need to rename some files/folders. (SM3DW for example)

    No its disc only but would be great if in the future it could do that. But you also have the problem to get around of the reports of people saying that if you install an out of region game to usb/nand it bricks the wiiu.

    Cool @AboodXD that's good to know I was just going by what the Brazilian guys were saying so then we 100% could do with a modified version of OurLoader to load the USB games please @Coc4tm

    I installed Splatoon EUR in my USA WiiU successfully, but it seems OurLoader, for now, can't start digital titles. I tried with DDD without sucess to (since OurLoader is based on DDD).

    Maybe @Coc4tm or any dev can try to change the code for digital titles region free

    There's no way to get the free downloadable songs from Taiko, right? It connects to the eshop but I get an error.
