    Hi guys,

    This might be really obvious but I cant seem to find an answer.

    Basically I used this tool: https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-wiivc-injector-script-gc-wii-homebrew-support.483577/ - to convert some NGC ISOs into Virtual Console games which I could install to my external USB HD via WUP Installer GX2.

    The Gamecube games run PERFECTLY, I'm so happy with how easy the process was, that tool made everything so simple. I have a question though. I opened one of the NGC games and played it for a bit, created a save file etc.. Where can I find the location of this save file on my Wii U so I can delete it? Usually when I locate a Wii U save file I go into settings, select the USB HD and I can delete it from there. However there is no save file for the NGC games, only the software.

    I noticed when I first launched the game it created virtual memory card slots (or something?), I assume I have to find this area to delete them?

    It's not inside your WiiU look into your sdcard in "saves" on the root folder(its "GameID.raw")

    Oh thank you for that! Found it :)

    I have another question... Is there any reason why Nintendont is placed on: SD:/apps/nintendont instead of SD:/wiiu/apps/nintendont - It doesn't show in my Homebrew channel menu, unless its not meant too?

    No problem. The channel you created is just to copy the game to the wiiu internal storage or usb and then it just forwards to vwii and launches nintendont from there. Then it boots the game from there. Basically its just an forwarder from WiiU side

    Oh I see! That's completely cleared things up then!

    I'm a little OCD with file structure and stuff on my SD card. I hate having files on there and stuff I don't need anymore, basically I hate clutter. So it annoys me a little when I see files/folders and cant justify what they do haha. So thanks for helping me with that :)

    Also another example there is a "Codes" folder on the root of my SD card with a file inside called GMSE01.gct - After a quick Google I know its used for cheat codes and stuff. Can I delete this? Or will it be auto generated? I don't really have any plans to ever use cheat codes and stuff.

    Delete it and launch your game. Then you see if it generates again. If you are not using cheat codes sure you can delete it. Maybe you have to change the settings in nintendont to deactivate the cheats option that could stop the generating of this file too, I think.
