    As you may already know, there's an app called NUSPacker, which will allow you to take your Loadiine decrypted games into WUPInstallable USB files. While it's awesome, it's not exactly user-friendly, so here's a tutorial for some who may not understand:

    1. Download the app, make sure you have Java installed:
    https://bitbucket.org/timogus/nuspacker/downloads/NUSPacker.jar

    2.Make a bat file in the same folder as the app, name it Encrypt.bat (or anything really)

    3.Edit the bat file (Right-click>Edit)and type:

    "java -jar NUSPacker.jar -in "The/Path/to/your/decryptedgame" -out "Where/you/want/the/encryptedfiles" -encryptKeyWith Wii U Common Key"

    The first and last quotes do not count. One more thing, if you don't want to copy your path, just go to the decrypted game's folder, Shift>Right-click in blank space>Copy as path, then put it in. Same with the Decrypted Directory.

    Here's an example .bat file, just change "C:/wiiu/games/Xenoblade Chronicles X [AX5E01]" and "C:/Users/esteb/Downloads/Games/Wii U/out" with your own directory (Oh, and add the common key, I don't think I can do that:P, just look up "Wii U Common Key Pastebin"):

    Reminder: You need Signature Patches (Be it Mocha, Haxchi,CHBC or Signature Patcher) to be able to WUPInstall anything you do with this (Also, "WUPInstall" is now a patented verb)

    Feel free to complain or ask for help!

    The app or the tutorial? The app takes loadiine converted games (code, content and meta) and turns them into NUS Files (Installable with WUPInstaller). The tutorial just tells you how to use it

    Being that you're encrypting something, -in is decrypted, -out is encrypted.

    This tutorial could use a bit more information (or a WIP designation). As it stands, it's like releasing a tutorial for a FPS that says: "Run, shoot, don't die."

    Yes. Since you cannot legitimately sign anything, you need signature patches for anything you create.

    How about the Custom VC games? This method works?

    Yes indeed! Updates don't need keys though

    Yes, as long as they have all 3 folders (code, content, meta)

    I've tried to pack a SNES hack rom, but It had a "c" and a "u" folders, both empty and it didn't work, so I deleted those folders and it worked now, it's that ok?

    I think the C and U folders are for saves.

    They are indeed for saves, they should NOT be in there

    I solved the below, i was using a wrong folder :) installed the game on the wii u menu now it s far quicker!

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hi EstPC13,

    Thanks for this guide, I followed it to the letter as I'd like to use it for super mario 3D world (very slow on SD hence wanting to wupinstall it) but it seems like the nuspacker java app doesn't run on my pc.

    I'm pretty sure it's a java version problem or something (I have jnustool java app and it works perfectly), so I'd like to know if you can help me figuring out what the problem is please? It seems like I'm running Java 8 update 121 on win 8.1 enterprise. Do i need to install something else?

    Thanks.

    Probably an error with your USB Drive. Are you running on Mocha or CBHC? It's worked for me on there.
