    Guys, with all the new and exciting things around the Wii u i want to know:

    The Wii u games are 25 gig each. How can i narrow it down to its 'actual size' ?

    Most of the disk is just dummy data, so lets say New Super Luigi U is 25 Gig, then, extracted, its more like 1.6GB if I remember.

    So you want to learn how to extract the WUD files, there are guides in the forum here.

    Yes (if you want to waste 25gb per game) or you can extract the files for loadiine.

    I use Uwizard.

    Google "WUX to WUD" - First post. Keep in mind, games cannot be extracted in WUX format. So you need to extract first from WUD, but that tool is nice if you want to keep the original WUD/WUX around for later if something goes wrong with the files.

    Yeah uwizard is a good tool, but not all the games work. Disc u is another tool that works. Also most games on the wii u aren't that big. Like Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze download is like 11gb, but when I extracted it was only like 5gb or so.
