I've Been Having Issues With SNEEK On vWii, I Did Everything Correctly, But The Extracted Games On My USB Are Not Showing Up In The DI Menu! The Games Are In The "games" Folder, And They Are Extracted In DiscEX Format! But They Are Not Showing Up! SNEEK Requires At Least 1 DiscEX Game But It Boot Up Fine, And There Are No Games!

I Would Like Some Help Please!

Never did anything regarding vWii but maybe imparting basic troubleshooting knowledge might help..

First of all verify the health of the drive, does everything else on it work? Copying, extracting, opening anything on it work? Does everything else Homebrew related on the drive work just fine? If so check if you put the "games" folder in the correct directory. Does it need to be in a specific folder? Root of the SD Card? Perhaps it's case sensitive or possibly you even made a typo? Another thing to consider is did you use uStealth or Xpl0itU's USB Hider? If so try disabling it then trying again. In order to properly help more information would be mucchhhh appreciated

You said sneek where the s refers to sd card. Uneek on the other hand is for usb. Neek is just the general term. Both use the sneek folder though.

I Am Using UNEEK+DI, My Games Are On "usb:\games\GAMEID" I Used Wii Backup Manager To Extract Them.
are you using ustealth? if so, I don't know if uneek can see through it or not. I've never actually tried a disc game through neek, but I have it setup for certain problematic games, and I've launched the home menu with neek installed. you don't need a game for the menu despite what it says. I think I was able to get it to list my emunand games in the past iirc. there were nearly 400 of them, so it took a while to load the home menu. I dropped that down to 2 games that require it. anyway, I didn't actually launch one of those games either, so I assume it can see through ustealth, or maybe usb loader gx (how I launch neek) is running in the background w/ ustealth support?

@XFlak or @Cyan may be able to help. I don't think Xflak has a wiiu though, but he knows about neek. Cyan might know as well, since he's pretty familiar with neek, though I don't know how much he's forgotten since he contributed to usb loader gx.

btw, you can add neek to a game in the game's settings in usb loader gx, so just make two separate emunands, one for neek, the other for everything else. add the game you want to neek, then put neek as the default emunand for that game. global should be set as the nand for everything else. I don't think this will work with disc ex games though. I don't know if usb loader gx can read them. if you use wiiware or vc games, and you want to add them to neek, install them to both emunands. the global settings can only read one at a time, so you want the game to appear by adding it to the emunand for everything else, then again with neek so that it will load with neek enabled in the game's settings.

I am not using Neek2o, Because I heard Neek2o On vWii Is VERY BUGGY, No channels show up on the vWii Menu.
I am using Normal UNEEK+DI

Did you already try on Wii ? does it work on wii but not vWii ? do you know how it should look when games are "displayed" ?
because they don't really appear in the system menu, the extracted games needs to be "mounted" into the "disc channel", one by one, from a hidden menu of neek.

it's just to be sure you know you have to press 1 (or 2, I always mix them), and choose the game from the list.


Like you said, neek is not running if there is no extracted game disc found, and seeing it's booting it means it's properly detecting them.
You need to choose the game to mount in the disc channel using the Disc Interface (DI) emulator.
Once you chose a disc, it will appear in the disc channel, and you'll launch it like if you just inserted a read disc in your console.


If you knew you have a hidden menu with a list of games, and it's in that menu you don't see any games, then I don't know how to help :(
try on Wii, see if it works, maybe it's an issue on vwii only ?
Maybe WiibackupManager is not extracting in the proper format ? or in the proper folder tree, or missing files (most probably!!), compared to DiscEx.

I suggest you use DiscEx once on a game and see what's generated, copied, the folder structure, etc.
I think there are files you need to copy and/or rename from the launch partition into the titleID folder.

I used ModMii to install UNEEK+DI on my Real Wii, and everything works fine, and all my games show up. I'm going to try DiscEX and see if it works on vWii, then I'll report back.

So, Sneek works but not Uneek on vWii?
I even wonder if there was a tutorial to build Uneek for vWii. I think there is only Sneek.

I don't know how to fix your boot issue, maybe you'll have to rebuild the emuNAND if it's corrupted.
you can look in sneek folder too, if there's a config file, you can try to delete it, it'll be recreated (but I'm not sure if it's neek or a neek2o file)
