    N64 forwarder is taking me back to wiiu home menu, just got wii screen and then restarts the console. Any suggestions?

    the forwarder is looking at a specific path on the SD card. you placed the N64 emulator in the correct location ?

    the wii homebrew goes into SD:/apps/ folder, not into the SD:/wiiu/apps/
    even if launched from the WiiU menu, they are still Wii apps.
    verify your full path (folder, subfolder and filename)

    also remember that only SD card is available, you can't put the homebrew or ROMs on USB. you could if you launched the emulator from vWii mode but you would lose the WiiU CPU speed advantage for WiiSXR and N64 emulators.

    Indeed,I was just installing the wrong forwarder. Now it's working like a charm! It is a shame Not64 has not support for this CPU improvement as well....

    I'm guessing you can't force classic controls on Skyward Sword?

    Can someone maybe contact EKE-EKE on github and ask if he may consider doing a WII U Gamepad patch for the neo geo pocket color emulator?
    https://github.com/ekeeke/neopop-gx

    Just curious since I noticed there was activity on the genesis plus GX page and managed to add the gamepad patch.

    Because when you launch the overclock homebrew app, Wii VC installed on USB won't boot up. For example launching the overclock app then running the ps1 emulator forwarder that's installed on USB, results in a black screen.



    Both N64 methods offer their own compatibilities. I mostly use N64 VC, and the N64 emulator is just extra to have around. Not really needed but its there. Also I didn't make the PS1 emulator or the overclocking app. I just put together how to do everything.

    Hello MattKimura,
    I've been trying to play gamecube games on the gamepad with no sucess.
    I installed Homebrew Channel v1.1.4 on vWii using YAWMM.
    Then I made a fowarder to it using TeconMoon's WiiVCInjector.
    I choose "vWii Nand Title Launcher" and used the title Id OHBC.
    The fowarder is working fine, as it loads the Homebrew Channel with gamepad support.
    However, when I load Nintendont or another app I get a black screen.
    If I load the homebrew channel v1.1.4 through wii menu I am able to load Nintendont just fine.
    Do you have any ideas why is this happening?
    Can you help me?
    Thanks in advance

    So are there any more emulators currently possible? :ninja:

    This happened to me, I think some of the homebrew may be corrupted and need to be reuploaded to the SD card, you could just redownload the homebrew and replace the boot.dol file and see if it fixes the problem, if not just for to be sure, maybe backup your sd card and format it again (Fat32) and then try again.

    Finally got it working!
    I found a fowarder on another site that is working just fine. Now I can launch Nintendont using the gamepad.
    It's weird that with my fowarder apps simply don't load, but problem solved now anyway.

    How do you make VC injects for the N64 emulator?

    Thank you I got the first method working. Quick question. Is there a way to run the first method without using an SD Card?

    Loving the Gamecube injects, but I'm having issues making it work with The Simpsons: Hit and Run. Has anyone else run into this? Is there any fixes?

    Earth, bro-dude.
    Damn, I've been so wrapped up, my dream of last year came true! Well, thanks, but looks like YT got to your vid before I could learn. Someone else broke those links, though. Good job, MK!

    Probably not possible. Especially not the "PS1 game injections" part.

    in theory doesn't a game cube injection just mount a Gamecube iso to vwii? then if you mount a ps1 title instead then have wiiSRX run it... wiiSRX should just now where to load the game from... like Nintendont would. @FIX94 maybe?
