YES please this!! WiiU needs a file explorer :)

I tried many ways to make it work with the tools we have right now, but nothing works, i need to learn how to code SERIOUSLY! I cant live my life waiting for the hackers do things im probably the only one who wants them xD

I think the app needs to be updated to include the FIX94 library for Gamepad so we can inject it and use Classic Controller emulation... and to my head that its just like couple lines of code.. only if i knew how to :'(

We're probably not the only one who want this but we are the vocal minority :P
I couldn't even get the Wiixplorer source to compile (without any changes) :P I'm really not cut out for coding ;)

Yes definitely, the Gamepad patch would be great. I already made a Channel for it. But with out the Gamepad patch I'm reaching for the Wiimote every time I want to change something on the SD card :/ the problem is i's not just a matter of changing a few things here and there to get it to work Fix94 did alot of work to get WiiU Gamepad to work on the GX Emulators, so it would take quite alot of effort to get it working on Wiixplorer. But worth it imo in the longrun :)

I want it too and i'm sure that a lot of people want it too but devs are busy with a lot of other things like retroarch, linux and plugin system...

OMG I'm sooooo glad I found this thread, and that it's only 7 1/2 months old. Hopefully you guys still want this, along with many others, because I'm trying to look into it now.

I'm a pretty experienced C/C++ coder so that's not the issue for me, rather it's just getting used to the SDKs and APIs available for the Wii U. Trying to learn just by reading others' code is extremely difficult (at least for me) when you don't even know what WHBLogConsoleInit is, let alone how to use it.

So where on Earth can I find some decent documentation that clearly explains the entire wut API? Not just the names of the libraries and the functions within those, but something more verbose? Using CMake to create a doxygen config file from the CMakeLists.txt that can be found on the wut GitHub repo, then running the config file though doxygen to create the docs myself took this doxygen & CMake n00b around 3 hours, only to discover that a lot of functions still have no description defined!

I've found @QuarkTheAwesome's ProgrammingOnTheU guide on GitHub (BTW Quark you ARE awesome! :D) but it's not quite complete yet. So any help to find any further resources like that would be greatly appreciated :)

I knew there had to be some other ppl out there like me who hate having to constantly switch the SD card between console and PC, so I'm glad I found you guys! Peace out B-)

Hey there, sorry to dig up an old thread, but I'm not sure this has been properly addressed. WiiUShell is all fine and dandy, it needs some work and it's rough along the edges, but this program simpily rocks. And there hasn't been a good realese with proper Pro Controller support. I've done some digging and found some to try, one made by @daxtsu and one by dimok789. But for some reason those two, when your exiting back to Homebrew, it takes you back to 1.1.2 (old) instead of 1.1.4 (new, with pro controller support). The versions without Pro Controller support exit to 1.1.4 (do you see where I'm going with this?). And also added Ustealth support would be nice as well. I don't have the know-how to do any of this stuff, but I'm sure there's some talented folks here that can.

Bumping again. I just realized that the version of WiiXplorer that does have WiiU Pro Controller support returns to it prvious loader if you hit "Exit" (which is Open Homebrew Channel wth Pro Controller support for me) as opposed to hitting "home" menu and exit to the original Homebrew Channel (with no Pro Controller support). I also discovered that the Wii U only see's one hard drive at a time, so two hard drives can't be seen at one time. So I loaded the version of WiiXplorer with Ustelth supported, and after I unplugged my Wii U hard drive, it read it like dream. But only with the Wiimote, no Pro Controller. Which I hope you all see my problem now.

So again I ask. Is there anyone out there that can take the WiiXplorer that supports the Pro Controller and add Ustealth support, or in vice versa. It would help for me to use the Pro controller and not have me dig out a different controller. Help to steamline things. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Whats the program that you use? I know of WiiUShell but that programs rather slow.

For transferring I mainly just FTP everything it's faster and no navigation required on Wii U if that helps but it all depends what you need it for

Yeah FTP works if I'm transferring files from my phone to my Wii U, but WiiXplorer has that too. Plus thers a version that has Ustealth support, and another with Pro Controller. I just would like to have one version with both.

Edit just to add. I just messed arund a bit using tehe Wii U FTP apps. It apears that I can't seem to copy files from the SD card to an NTFS hard drive, like a new Wii image or something. Something that WiiXplorer does with ease.
