got this wii u haxchi ---CBHC by following the guide on this forum ,thanks to this forum and the writer ,
did try to get the HBL channel on the game pad by following the tutorial ,
1)do i have to keep the SD card with the files in the front slot of the wii u for HBL to load .
2)is there any method i can keep the card out of the box
3) did try pressing the home button when CBHC was booting to take me to menu ,,,and then launch HBL ,,or others menu sontents . i am not keen on doing this as i dont want to run/delete any thing unnecessarily and brick the wii u

thanks

I don't know for sure, but I think you still need the files on the sd card. loadiine's channel, for example, requires loadiine be on the sd card in the right place. I think the channel is just a forwarder.
you don't need the card in the system unless you're using something other than sysmenu to boot up by default and don't plan to use any homebrew.
you need to press the home button when it says "autobooting." you won't harm the system unless you move the cbhc game, delete it, or format the system while on cbhc. uninstall cbhc first before you do any of those.

if i take the card out ,will it still boot into CBHC or the normal 5.5.2 fm
when the card is out if i press the home button it says 3 on the top left hand corner of the gamepad and the screen is black ,,i wont brick it this way ,,,
so is it safe to keep the card out of the slot so not to do any accidental changes

thanks

3 is normal is there's no sd card or the sd card is dying/corrupted. it won't hurt the system any. if you boot into sysmenu, it shouldn't require an sd card.

    I don't mind the price, but there is a very real chance I won't ever touch it once it gets here.

    $100 for a console is not a lot. $100 for a plastic brick to put on a shelf is a lot.

    I got a Pi5 Veho, loaded like 400GBs of games tested a few and now it sits lol
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Next to the Pi4
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Although the Pi5 features 2TBs of Nvme goodness
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I had hoped Killer Instinct Gold on the N64 would improve..... It did not, so not a speed issue, emulation issue
  • Veho @ Veho:
    On the Pi?

  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I was kinda sad about that, got it all set up and fired it up. Side by side Pi4 vs Pi5 and there is literally zero difference
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Although I will say Dreamcast seems to work better
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Maybe there's some single/multi core bullshit that one emulator knows how to use and the other doesn't.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Things where speed was the issue and not the emulator
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Veho probably but based on what I read even on a PC that one game is tough to emulate
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Probably microcode
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    The N64 was ahead of it's time with that BS lol
  • Veho @ Veho:
    FPGA N64 emu when?
  • Veho @ Veho:
    It's amazing how annoying those old consoles are to emulate. Like, you can emulate Gamecube and Wii on a calculator, but like the SNES still has trouble.

    I think that one company made one?
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Yeah the issue from what I understand is they used old hardware that was more finicky about timings and speeds, newer stuff was more about shaders and APIs lol
  • Veho @ Veho:
    And half the stuff relied on weird interference inside the chip and not actual intended functionality.
