    Hi!

    I wonder if I can install downloaded backup Wii games from Wii U USB Helper (for example, Super Mario Galaxy 1 & 2 which you can find there when you filter for Wii games) on my external hard drive with WUP Installer GX2?

    Or do I have to use vWii and USB GXLoader instead to play backup Wii games?

    I am asking here so I don't brick my Wii U. Thx for help!

    If you get them from the Wii U USB Helper they can be installed with WUP Installer, yes. But regular ISOs or .wbfs will not work.

    Oh, so they count as Wii VCs for Wii U? I didn't find them in a list of available Wii U VC games in eShop so I was wondering. Thx for ur reply! =)

    Yeah, I've done it myself. They're not technically "VC" since they're not being emulated, but it works the same way as a VC to the user, I suppose.
