    I have followed this tutorial to a "T" using the TechMoon VC injector


    When I go to try to play the game I either get frozen on the nintendont loading the mem card or I get a black screen all together.

    This happens right after the Wii splash screen appears.

    My setup uses the western digital 2tb hard drive connected to the back of the WiiU via y-cable.
    Everything else works like wii u games and wii VC games injected with this same tool. For some reason gamecube games are not working

    Is there any way to make this work properly?

    I tried to watch that video to see if he's giving you good info but I turned it off in seconds just can't understand that dude. I will just ask did you install Nintendont on your sd card?

    Put your sd card in your computer and make sure there's an apps folder and nintendont insider that folder, and inside that should be meta.xml and boot.dol. If not it's not installed correctly.

    Thanks Jay so there is a nintendont folder inside apps that has those files.

    Is there another way to load these games?

    Supposedly this vc injector is supposed to have nintendont installed alongside the games. but obviously it isnt working.

    Another thing I tried was to load haxchi first then try the games but still same black screen issue.

    Are you using a legit external hard drive with y cable or are you installing to internal? If not already try to install to internal.

    Before launching the gamecube game installed on your HDD, try launching the vWii mode first (ie. the Wii menu). Return to Wii U menu, proceed to load the method of hacking (CBHC if theres already present, haxchi, web browser exploit, etc) and then launch the GC game. There are some SD cards that are not compatible and refuse to load Nintendont, try experimenting with different SD cards at hand. I use a 512 mb kingston SD (very old) and thats the only SD card that works for me for this method, even I tried lots of SD cards (brands, micro SD adapters and different capacities). Hope it works for you.

    Nevermind you have a y-cable. I'm not sure why either but try what zerofalcon said.

    (facepalm) guys you do know it's because your gamecube controller adapter is plugged in right? If anything usb other then the usb drive is plugged in. The game will just black screen. If you are using gamecube controllers. Unplug the adapter as you start up, wait til you see maybe a progressive scan screen or anything at all, then reply them in.

    You could have just explained this without the snarkiness. I've never owned a gamecube controller adapter so it's kind of difficult for me to tell someone that's the problem. If the op has one in you're probably right but they didn't even say they had one.

    No, the Wii U gamecube adapter (official or third party) connected or disconnected has nothing relevant to the black screen when using injected GC games. No one knows exactly what triggers this issue but there are workarounds like the one I mentioned in my earlier post.
