    I have an old Haxchi install from about 2016 and was trying to get back in to install a GC game for my mother. But I seem to be getting every conceivable error. Started as -3, then 4, then 5, now 1. It will only go back to the sysmenu.

    ms currently cooperates somewhat with the haxx0rs by letting people get dev mode cheap. That's why there's no mod chip yet.

    sony used to allow linux on the ps3.

    nintendo has hate on for emulators they aren't selling themselves, so that's why they hate homebrew. cuz it can be used to pirate their games.

    Then they should protect their games and systems better :)

    Most creators of the nes era are dead, or long lost from the map

    yeah, not much they can do about emulators, as they can just handle the raw digital rom data, which there's no real way for them to protect.

    so i am thinking of downloading some non legit dlc and e games on my wiiu. i have read over a bit of this thread but there is alot to go over so i will just ask the few questions have.

    1. do i still need to download a vc game like brain age to download e titles?
    2 if i use haxchi instead of cb do i need to run that program every time i want to play an e title?

    trying to decide if it is worth it for me. i am not the best at this and do not want to brick my console

    @STUBBY buy the game. A non legit ds vc game will definitely brick the console.

    1. No you don't need a vc game to download eShop titles. Only a console...or whatever you mean with this question ;)
    2. When coldboothax is not installed, yes. You need to run haxchi after every restart of the console.

    Then buy one of these ds vc games. And your chances to brick the console are very very small when you follow carefully the steps.

    I've been asking myself this question since I bought a Wii U at a flea market and hacked it with CBHC via a bought VC DS Game, what if I install a USB Helper version of said game without touching, deleting, moving the DON'T TOUCH ME title, will that be a problem or will that let me play that game?

    I'm thinking it might be a problem since the cold boot is using the ID of that title, installing the game via WUP might be a problem but do let me know.

    I think you can play the game if you copy/not move to internal memory.

    So, meaning installing it to the USB Drive instead of the Wii U internal memory?

    no, uninstall cbhc, delete the game, redownload the game from the eshop, copy the game from external to internal, reinstall cbhc without external hdd plugged in. I think usb takes precedence. copying is what I did as well.

    I did the CBHC without any USB drives, entirely from the SD card, installed a few games and ran out of internal memory, then resorted on getting a USB drive.

    1. Could I at this point just straight copy the DON'T TOUCH ME title to the USB drive.
    2. Still need to uninstall CBHC, delete the game, redownload the game from the eshop, copy it to the USB drive, disconnect the USB drive, reinstall CBHC.
    3.Or can I just install the game with WUP as my setup is *(probably the second long option is the right one?)

    no, I believe copying the game now will be copying the hacked version of the game. you need a fresh copy. you're trying to play the game, right?

    Yes, so as I thought the DON'T TOUCH ME is already modified for CBHC.

    So I'd need to do this or is it literally impossible to play said game while CBHC is using that title?

    yes, it's been modified. you need to uninstall it before you do anything to the game or your system will brick.

    Thank you, one last thing and correct me if I'm wrong, to my understanding the only way to play said title is to uninstall CBHC, delete it and redownload from the eshop, if I wish to use CBHC again I'll have to either not play that title or get another compatible title I don't wish to play.

    afaik, you can still play the game if you've copied it. only the one on internal memory will be used for cbhc. in my case, the name and icon didn't change on the home menu, because it's reading the usb version of the game while at boot up, it's reading cbhc from internal memory. I don't know for sure that the game will work, but it's likely it will as long as it's been copied.
