    Okay, I looked in the sticky posts and couldn't find anything.

    I have some wiiu games. Unzipped them and all of them have code, content, and meta folders.

    Only problem is I don't know what to do with the folders now. Convert them into something else? Tried putting them in the install folder as is and that did nothing.

    I just want to install them on a usb drive.

    Thanks.

    Is there a reason why wup is preferred over loadiine?

    I'm reading, and hopefully correctly, that loadiine can only be run off the sd card, and not installed.

    Wup would be fine, but I don't know where to find them t9 download. I can only find loadiine games to download.

    Thanks

    There are numerous downsides to loadiine including it not being 100% compatible with all games or the fact some games take an absolute age to load for instance Super Mario 3d World takes about 5 mins to just load to the title screen/watchdogs takes about 10 mins to title screen an unmodified version of Starfox Zero takes 90 mins or so to load ect plus no online and a number of other issues as well.

    Okay, so the conversion from Loadiine to WUP requires Mocha FW? Won't work on Haxchi?

    You really should consider re-downloading your games in WUP format. The old Loadiine format was okay before the brazilian method, but now it's totally deprecated. Marko76 above mentioned several of the problems with Loadiine. Besides, trying to convert them to WUP is a headache and not guaranteed to work, depending on how they were ripped in the first place, (personal experience). Your best bet is to get the proper files from NUS. Wii U USB Helper was the recommended program before, to do so, but I think it's dead now. So it's back to good old reliable FunKiiU to download what you need.
