    I'm sure many of you have already seen and used this tool from the Wii U USB Loading thread.

    This app is a title downloader and ticket patcher, just open a dumped tik file with it and it will give you a folder ready for USB installation with WUD installer

    The latest update includes a browser for the tickets on that website but there's one gotcha...

    In order to activate the browser you need to know the address of that website... I did this to keep the mods both here and on the Wii U Hacks sub-reddit happy. (It's not even in the source code)

    Also included are a couple bug fixes and the ability for the program to remember the last path you saved a game to.

    Screenshots

    Notes about installing games
    • Games containing special characters like ®, ™, and é must be renamed since wup installer currently will not install games that contain them in the folder name
    • The games in red will only work on a signature-patched home menu (iosuhax or redNAND both work)

    Download: https://github.com/DanTheMan827/uTikDownloadHelper/releases

    Source Code: https://github.com/DanTheMan827/uTikDownloadHelper

    Other Languages:

    if anyone can speak additional languages and wouldn't mind translating the app I could also add localization for those languages...

    Just open an issue on GitHub (preferred) or PM me with the language name and a list of these strings translated along with their English counterpart (so I know which to associate them with)

    The strings that need to be translated

    Disclaimer
    I am not liable for whatever you choose to do with this program. It's only made to make reacquiring owned games easier. In the end it's your personal choice to use this software.

    Did you talk to the mods before posting? I feel like they may not have agreed to allow you to post this. It still is inherently a program that downloads tickets from "that website".

    I didn't, but I don't enable the features unless you know the address of the site.

    This program can also be used to download title data and patch tickets obtained legitimately by using the IOSU hack that was recently released.

    Also, it's not that much different than Shameless

    If the mods have a problem with it I'll gladly let them delete this thread.

    What do you think @Cyan?

    You could make it like freeShop where you have to input the address to get stuff from. So it's not present in the source code at all.

    How could it possibly read from that site when the tik files are linked to mega and in rar form for download.

    Non-moderator opinon:
    It's one thing to post a program that allows a person to download files from a site that they enter, but when you specify that only a single answer is correct, your tool associates itself with the site. That's what you want to avoid.

    We understand that there's currently only one site that's going to work properly with your code, but your code shouldn't know that.

    Why force the code to a specific site when it's feasible that someone could set up their own site with their own tickets if they wanted to? Just allow entry of the site to pull the tickets from, and give an example of the format you're looking for, e.g. www.mysitename.org

    I just re-issued the code / downloads, now there's no trace of the website address in there at all, just a one-way MD5 hash.

    also part of the code I re-issued is the ability to modify the settings.ini file saved at %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\uTikDownloadHelper\ if you REALLY want to use another site (no other ones compatible at this time)

    awesome work DanTheMan827 I was just messing around with a similar idea you saved me heaps of work :D

    I downloaded "that" entire site and modified your src to work from the local directory just incase "that" site gets nuked, might be something you want to do for your own personal one :D

    thanks again

    This is great, but it's too great. It needs to be taken off the Temp.
    Seriously. The program even implies how to find the url. GBAtemp does not link to OR hint to warez.

    Have you seen the 3DS section?

    Specifically apps like CIAngel, FreeShop, TikDevil, Shameless, and others I can't remember off the top of my head...

    Those don't even require any kind of user verification of the site and the apps are just a QR code away...

    Correct, you could also dump the tickets on your own using IOSU and physical discs if you were so inclined

    It could be a problem with that specific title.

    Try one that you know is on the eShop

    Thanks for your reply, it's make that for all.
    When i can i try with another Pc.

    Edit: it's ok on my second Pc, the problem on my first is with NUSgrabber (launch and close directly)
    I have notice, when the folder selected for the downloaded files isn't empty there is a pop-up windows for asking if you want use this folder or not. If i say yes or not the download don't start.
