    Hello folks!

    Looking forward to the IOSU stuff from Hykem I'm thinking a lot about what could be possible (as mentioned in my other thread) and that with a bit of luck the Wii U mode could become the central fun station to play anything from NES over N64 and Wii up to Wii U out of one loader without the need of accessing the vWii mode.
    The magic word is injection and since I don't have a Wii U yet (still keeping my bucks for it) I wonder if with injection of Wii games it would be possible to just use the Wii U Mii characters everywhere.

    If not there are two big disadvantages:
    1. All Mii characters have to be created twice (in Wii U and in vWii mode).
    2. The limit for Mii characters in Wii/vWii mode is 100 which is quiet low where the Wii U can store 3000 which is great!
    The only question is if injected Wii games would be able to handle to handle Wii U Mii characters as they have more features.

    Since I don't have a Wii U yet as I mentioned above I wonder how it is in Super Mario Galaxy which is already available as a VC game for the Wii U because as far as I remember a Mii is used for the three ingame savegames.

    Can anyone who got this as a VC game on Wii U tell me if there can be chosen any Mii from the Wii U?

    Edit: I watched some Youtube videos. It seems like they replaced the Mii heads on the savegame planets with heads from Mario, Peach and so on. That sucks.
    Anyone got further information?

    Wii VC games are played in vWii mode.

    I feared that. Then at least we need some Wii U homebrew which is (on every boot) syncing all vWii Miis with Wii U if that's possible.
    Of course just this direction. Syncing Wii U Miis with vWii won't work.

    You can transfer vWii Miis to Wii U. or do you also want to do it both ways?
