    So I have downloaded a few games, the zipped folder is suppose to contain the WUD......but how do I unzip to get the WUD? Do I use uWizard, etc..?

    WinZip....WinRAR - you don't have an unzip utility?

    Of course, when trying to unzip it gives an error something like that "the file type is unsupported"....thats why I was asking if some other program is needed to unzip

    download the latest winzip. If your running an older version it won't extract.

    After that you need to extract the wud you need discU to be able to play it

    Problem solved....I originally tried jzip and winrar, with no luck.
    Winzip extracted them fine.
    Didn`t realize I needed to perhaps have the latest versions of unzip software.

    NOW I just have to figure out what format I need to use? "install" OR "meta, content, code" OR ".key, .wud"

    Meta,content,code is for slow loading loadiine. Cause the game has a wud it means it can be installed to your system either to the internal nand or external USB hdd for for perfect loading and compatibility

    If you want to install the game via wupinstaller, you will need to convert the wud into installable .app files using wud2app (https://github.com/FIX94/wud2app/releases) then put all the converted files into SD:\install\Gamefolder\

    It was actually 3 different downloaded games......
    So the .wud .key method is for loading off external/internal?
    What type is it and/or when is it used when the game comes already with the main folder "install"?
    And meta,content,code is used for Loadiine.....used to run off SD?

    If you downloaded the game off the web and it's in an install folder it's gonna be all ready for installing with wupinstaller. These should contain files like .app and .h3 files etc. There basically just downloaded archives from either nus with using a program like usbhelper
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-wii-u-usb-helper-a-small-eshop-for-windows.446565/
    or there an already extracted .wud image someone's uploaded.
