    That's weird, you shouldn't have to reformat. Does the RetroArch folder with the cores have the Info folder and all info files? If not, they are needed. Delete every single config file.

    Hahaha I'm a moron, got it fixed.
    I probably had a custom input config and when I deleted the cfg file there was a mismatch happening. On the wiiu folder on the SD card there was a WIIU Gamepad.cfg file, which had just
    input_driver = "wiiu"
    input_device = "WIIU Gamepad"​
    Just took that one out and presto. It's working now.

    I really appreciate the help though!

    Since I'm here I might as well ask, what are the best core for each system? And is there a benefit to having snes roms as .smc instead of a zip file?

    For Snes, go with Snes9x mainline and not 2005 or 2010, they are old and only for weaker devices, but are included with the nightly builds. Snes9x runs on the Wii U full speed perfectly.
    NES = Nestopia Undead
    GBA = mGBA
    CPS1/CPS2 - Final Burn Alpha
    As for the others, I don't use them much.

    Humm. Didn't know that. Is it safe to install .prx retroarch cores on WIIU using Wup Installer?

    How do I uninstall? Just delete the channel?

    rpx cant be installed alone ... you need to make it like an actual channel contaning files meta,content and code files with the apropiet data so yeah an rpx alone cant do you any good.

    No, I'm not really happy with it, and it's basically a built-in forwarder, but the rpx isn't on your SD card, and isn't a "real" channel, because the Retroarch build system doesn't create rpx files that can be used as stand alone yet.

    Even if you created all the files needed to make a channel, when you exited the app, it would crash. The only way to install as a channel is by using the one I have provided. And yes, it can be deleted just like other things you install.

    Hi! I'm just a noob into the wiiu homebrew and emulator things and I wanted to play some CPS2 games in my console, I run the final burn alpha 1.5 in order to play them and when I play them it sound like there's a whistle playing on the background... did anyone knows a fix for that ?

    Just turn off the WiiU holding the power button for 5 secs and launch again retroarch... that must fix the problem

    Delete your config files and start again. If you ever mess up anything in menu that's all need to do. Config files are in the retroarch folder in your sd card.

    Yes wiiu pro controller option is there. You can use that plus many more controllers to navigate menus. Can only set 1 at a time. You can have player 2 set as gamepad in case you mess up again.
