    Hi all, I set up home brew on my wii u and downloaded the snes emulators 2010 and 2005 I have wii u version 5.5.1 and when I start the emulator the loading bar loads and stops right at the end and my wii u freezes and I have to turn the wii u off and on, is there a reason for this or another snes emulator I can play on the wii u? Any help on this will be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

    I just downloaded the retro arch app that was only available on the home brew app page, I think it is 1.3.6 or something like that I will have to check when I'm home in an hour as I can't remeber, have you seen this issue before, I was trying this last night? Thanks for replying

    Create a RetroArch folder in SDCard:// and redownload snesx2005 and snesx2010.
    Put them in SDCard://wiiu/apps/ [Seperately, they're both a different kind of homebrew]
    If you have +1000 ROMs on your SDCard, a CFW is recommended.

    yes I have installed both app separately so on the sd card it is wiiu/apps/snes2010 and also snes2005, when loaded on homebred both appear as to separate apps?
    Also what is a cfw? For the roms I was just going to make a folder in wii u called snes games, would that be right?

    Nope, it must be SDCard://RetroArch/roms
    CFW is required to run non-legit games and etc. May i ask you what guide did you follow?

    Are you saying to make to retroarch folders in side wiiu/apps/retroarch1 & retroarch2 and extract the snes downloads 2010 to one folder and 2005 to another folder?

    I only need one of the snes apps, the resin why I have both is because one does not work so I tried the other but they both don't work.

    No mate.
    You should make retroarch folder in root of SDCard
    And every homebrew should be in wiiu/apps, roms should be in sdcard://retroarch/roms.

    Nah. You need to paste the config ex. a=wiiu/apps/homebrew_launcher/homebrew_launcher.elf
    Be sure to use legit DS VC game bought from eShop

    Hi Felek

    thanks for your help, so I have bought a game new super Mario bros from the shop and installed it, I installed haxchi, I created a folder in the root of the sd card called haxchi and in there I created a txt file and pasted the config from the guide.
    now i when to homebrew loaded haxchi again and re-installed in over new Mario bros again
    now when i select new Mario bros and hold either a or b or hold nothing it goes straight to homebrew menu and when i select haxchi and hold a or b or nothing it just goes into the haxchi install screen and aks me to select new Mario bros again, is that what it is supposed to do?
    sorry about this it would appear im just not getting this.

    thanks for your help

    Is there a reason why you don't use the regular Snes9x 1.54 core? It's more accurate, more stable and just better overall. The 2005 and 2010 versions are primarily for weaker hardware.

    they are the only 2 snes emulators i could find on the homebrew app store, i have gone through the guide as far as installing haxchi but do i need to go any more as all i want to do is load a snes emulator, i don't need wii u game installers and saving wii u games to sd cards i just want the snes emulator to work.

    thanks for your help felek it is very much appreciated

    You must reinstall Haxchi everytime you change config.txt.
    Use Haxchi Installer and let it overwrite it again.
