WUP Installer, SD Card FAT32, how do I get games with .APP files larger than 4GB to install?

    Using Wup Installer Mod Y, been using a FAT32 SD card to transfer files to the system to install, having an issue where something I'm trying to install has an .app file that exceeds the filesize limitation of FAT32. I see other people have these titles installed, what method is there that I'm not aware of?

    Which game is it? Try unpacking and repacking and see if the output is any different.

    Interesting. i've installed plenty of backups and all appear to have <4gb file sizes which I assume is not a coincidence.

    I always assumed the WiiU file system had the 4GB limitation too as that seems to be the cut off point for single files in large games.

    Bayonetta 2 and Fatal Frame are the titles that have an oversized App file.... I've been just downloading straight with uTikHelper, have yet to unpack any files....

    You have a bad download. Neither of those titles has any app files over 4GB. Redownload with something that verifies the file size, e.g. JNUSTool and WiiU USB Helper.
