    I haven't tested this method yet, can somebody please do?

    Ever got confused with the game being inside of the game?
    Well, now you can run it seperately!

    Requirements:
    An SD Card (min: 8GB)
    New Super Luigi U disc


    Method:
    What you need to do is get Disc2App from the HBAS
    When you have gotten that, make sure you have your NSLU disc inserted!
    Dump the files with Disc2App and now switch to your computer.
    Insert the SD and find the dumped game, then copy it to your desktop.
    Find the .tik file, find a way to make it work on WUP Installer and replace the .tik file on the SD with the new one.
    If the game is not in an "install" folder, make it so it is!
    Get back on your Wii U, insert the SD, launch the Homebrew Launcher and install NSLU!

    You now have NSLU as a completely seperate game!

    Edit:
    People are still replying? I would've expected this would've gone lost with all other useless threads.

    The only reason I did this was because the combination disc is as confusing as getting the DLC on a digital copy or CD copy + if you were to get the combination off the eShop, it would take too much space. This could also be a thread showing newbies how to convert a disc to app files.

    I don't mind all the hate, I see that on every forum I go to. I'm used to it.

    Any way, if you want to have a faster way of doing this, try Abood's way

    I have New Super Luigi U on disc and New Super Mario Bros. U digital LMAO.
    Downloaded New Super Mario Bros. U for free during the promotion of Mario Kart 8, which I got when it came out.

    Cause that disc doesn't just have the 2 games. It has lots of videos exclusively to that version, and well videos take space

    The combination disc apparently has "bonus videos" showing various tips and tricks.

    EDIT: Too slow, didn't refresh the page before posting. :V

    Whilst that may be the case, I can't see there being 12GB of extra video files on NSLU... That's a LOT of movies in HD hahaha

    Well that is exactly what has taken up all the extra space the video's are quite long and there is over a hundred of them if I remember rightly

    The combo version only exists as a physical disc, and it's equally fast and cheap to make a 2 GB bluray as it is a 11 GB one :)

    Oh true, it's the Luigi-only version that's only a disc
