    Taiko - at least the first game you can only use headphone output if you use the gamepad display. With this you can use it and play on the TV too.

    Gambia, The
    Okay, I found a fix, it's working now.

    I don't like the idea of having a app which combines everything (I mean hardcoded). This way, we end in multiple different app per game.. But currently we have no other choice.
    Maybe I've time to integrate my audio swapping into this repo here, but at need to update their stuff, it's kinda outdated.

    If anyone is interested in my code: https://github.com/Maschell/function-patcher-example/tree/swipswapme
    It really only does swapping of audio and video, no other cool features.

    Godly, thanks guys!
    @Maschell - would yours run from HBC or does it need another method?

    Do you think this, HIDtoVPAD and NNU-Patcher could be added to some kind of CFW as patches?

    I talked with Yahya and they had a discussion with Maschell today. The current plan is that Yahya will integrate his code into ours and will release soon.

    You will only be banned if you use any scripts with TCPGecko that have the potential to ban. TCPGecko does not ban by itself.

    Thank you for the report. We mainly tested Splatoon's enhanced swapping in multiplayer, and not as much in the Plaza or Hero Mode. An update might come to fix this in the future.

    It should be possible to use beacons by swapping to the GamePad screen and touching the beacon like normal.

    Yep, it should say 5.5.1. Thanks for the notice! (None of us own Lego City afaik, but it should work fine.)

    Would it be possible to map the "swap" function to a button or combination of your choosing?

    The only other one I can think of is

    The Cave

    On a side note this does not work too well with Game And Wario due to the L and minus button being used in the game to exit out of the mini games so you can't use this app to switch screens in game.

    Thanks so much for this! Halfway through #FE and I can finally play on the gamepad while the TV is in use.

    Yes i just tried the cave but same as you no audio I then tried Tokyo Mirage and that worked perfectly with sound. Strange how it does not work for some games.

    (Edit) ZombiU also works but you can't switch screens in game so no way of using the inventory .

    Yahya is planning on merging Maschell's code in with drcswap, so he'll probably look into that when he gets around to it. Some games handle sound differently than others.

    Just worked out how to switch screens in ZombiU you have to press the home button first then press tv then press home button again and the screen will swap. Only game so far that I have found that you need to do that in. Also tried it with Super Toy cars if you put the TV screen onto the pad the screen is mega zoomed in and only about 1 quarter of what should be on the screen is shown.

    Edit Thomas was Alone also has the zoomed in screen issue. Which really isn't an issue as it already has off screen play anyway lol

    Help please,
    whenever I try to install with either method from the app, my wii u shows the home menu loading screen for a second, then everything goes black. Possible fixes? I'm desperate to play some splatoon as I am out of a TV. Thanks

    If the swap button could just be the TV button while the app is activated no one would ever complain ;)
