    I mean you can simply install the game with the WUP-Installer on the NAND or USB Device?
    So what is it for?

    It WAS for when we couldn't install games to homemenu.

    Now it is useless but some fanboys still try to find stupid reasons to defend it.

    Well, I guess there was a lot of work, and precious time the author spent on it, so yeah.
    But thank you ! @xtheman166 for clearing things up.

    Loadiine was a hard, and well supported project. But, of course is now rendered useless. Unless the user cannot install games for whatever reason. Otherwise, installing games is far easier and far better in terms of performance.

    There ARE still games which either no one has bothered to share their tickets for, or no one has bothered to get the tickets. For those few games, Loadiine is still useful.

    Really? If there are, I can try to find copies of them and dump tickets. Is there like a list of games like that?

    You can repack them into installable format and install they with sig patches...

    I dunno if there's a list. The only one in my small collection is Race the Sun.
    Alright, I was not aware of that. I've been keeping my feet out of the Nintendo pool around here because of the drama, so I miss stuff.

    I use it because I don't want to use redNAND and the only things I have are VC injects, many of which haven't been made for installation yet. It's also a lot simpler.

    Loadiine is slower, you dont need rednand, and you can install VC injects and use them easier.

    Can I install VC games without having CF or bought a DS Game online?

    You can use covers like the vintage Wii USB loaders and play from SD card.

    No, you need a CFW... which is not a big deal, just like you (practically) need the HBL for wupinstaller...

    @Ryccardo Im really new to the Wii U hacking scene, I've read the thread but I dont know how to do it, is this the method where I need a 64GB SD or a DS game?
    Or can you tell me how it works?

    No.
    The large SD is for Rednand, which you don't really need
    The original DS game is for CBHC, which is the most convenient CFW to use (it autostarts with the console) but you can try first and for free with the sigpatch one you asked for
