    Hi guys,

    i hacked the Wii U with the Brain Age Exploit and now i have haxchi and the WUP installer option. Unfortunatley I didn't find a single ressource of WUP ready games on the web after using google and duckduckgo :(

    I only managed to start Splatoon with lodiine before hacking the Wii U but Captain Toad and Super Mario 3D land didn't work with Lodiine. The Screens remained black even though I clearly had the lodiine verisions of them.

    Then I learned there are at least 3 versions of game files out there and as an old noob I am really overwhelmed...

    So I'm writing a list of what I have at home, maybe someone can help me, please:

    .) iMac with no windows on it for formating disks in fat32 :(((
    .) hacked Wii U 32GB
    .) 8GB SD Card, fat 32 by default
    .) empty USB Harddrive with about 1TB
    .) Super Mario 3D World (ARDP01)
    .) Super Mario 3D World USA WiiU Powerwup (this turnes into a 25gb file after unzipping it)
    .) Captain Toad treasure Tracker (AKBP01) (what do these codes even mean)
    .) Legend of Zelda The Wind Waker HD USA WiiU Fake (this one turns into a 24gb .wud file, too big for my SD)


    Thanks in advance guys.

    It’s better to install games instead using loadiine because of compatibility.

    Search for Wii u USB helper, this tool is what you’re really looking for

    but with lodiine you start up games right from the sd card, right? I thought Wup Intaller GX2 is for installing.

    But what kind of game files do i need to install them?

    Loadiine games can just be played from SD card

    If you want to install games you need to download the game contents using wii u USB helper, you put the files into the install folder of your SD and just install it using wup installer. The game will be displayed on your homescreen.

    yeah but very few people have an older version most people auto updated it since it does that by default

    Hi guys, it's me again. I jus bought a bigger SD Card (16gb) and a 64GB USB3 Stick (fat32 formated by default)

    I was successfully able to install app files via Wup Installer GX2 from my old 8GB SD Card to the internal memory. Now I would like to install more games on the new USB Stick.
    It can write 55MB/s and read 168MB/s (if this information is important)

    Can I just plug the USB Stick inside the Wii U and format it for Wii U by Nintendos formating option or do I need to apply different tricks?

    Cheers

    Hello,

    @DaOldGamer :

    Use an external hard drive for your Wii U, you will have everything to gain (capacity, price compared to the numbers of giga .....) because the USB keys are only causing problems wii u and work poorly or little

    Anyway, the Wii U will format you your external hard drive in the format of the Wii U. Use a hard drive for your Wii U and a hard drive for your Mac.
