    good

    The dev probably got tired of maintaining such a big program.

    "Managing" just set and forget, perhaps just mad about lack of donations

    I heard he said he shut it down do to "personal reasons". He bricked every installation though, sooooo more likely he probably got a CaD from Nintendo. Unless he was REALLY salty about donations, but either ways its virtually dead.

    So, can you just not get the program from official sources anymore or does the program just straight-up not work? It’s too bad, I was expecting him to make a good chunk of donations from the crypto miner in the program - that was actually a really smart idea.

    Just got a Wii U for 133$ yesterday. Hack and installed Haxchi and CBHC, and I was able to download a bunch of games with Wii U USB helper, you guys just need to google to make USB Helper work again :)

    Older versions still work fine, but it's a hassle.

    I'm actually mad at the dev for forcing us not use the program, that's how I see it.

    The dev should just release the source code so forks can be made.

    How do you download updates and dlc anymore for cemu, since the title key site is done and the tool rely on it?
