Hi everybody,

With arguably the biggest release of the year coming out for our beloved Wii U, I had a few questions regarding the EU/US release of Xenoblade and our ability to play it through Loadiine......

1. I'm on 5.3.2, will I need to spoof it to 5.5 to play online? Is that even possible?
2. There are apparently download packs on the eshop which will speed up loading. Any thoughts on how these can be installed for Loadiine users?

I've tried to avoid all spoilers for this game, as I don't want to ruin the experience! So I apologize if these questions are pointless. Does anyone know what the online is like for this game? For example, is it co-op? In other words, is the online a major component and we're gonna be missing out by staying on 5.3.2?

Thanks in advance for any replies. And a massive thanks to the Loadiine developers, you guys rock!

I don't see how these two question relate to Loadiine at all, Loadiine gives you the possibility to load a game from SD card, and you need to have the dumped files of that game in your sd card with its rpx file to be able to load it, and so far online is not supported with Loadiine.

packs won't be recongnized for now, and you don't need them, everything will be on your sd card.

unrelated but I was surprised to see special edition XenoX yesterday at FNAC (one of biggest retailer in france (was supprised they were breaking street dates there)), since it's supposed to be on shelves on dec 4th. (not sure since when it was there)

They usually just put empty boxes until release.

that was the special edition (carboard), there was two of them and they seemed quite full. (I mean you could just go and buy them, take it to the counter etc, not pre-order boxes)

Not being able to play online is a minor problem since it's the smallest 'feature' of the game.

You can use NPC versions of your friends characters to back up your party in online missions and also compete in battles against world bosses with up to 32 random guys for loot and achievements.

It's fun, but it won't kill you if you won't be able to partake.

The DLC used to "speed the loading time" is the exact game files.
This is not an update, but a "speed" pack.

As the WiiU doesn't officially allow installation of disc to USB HDD, they are releasing download packs to install the game on HDD for users who are bying the disc, and speed the load time instead of loading from the disc.
Users who are buying the eShop version don't need additional download because that's already installed on HDD.
If you are using loadiine, you are already NOT using the disc, so there's no speed to improve. you are already loading the files from SD card. You don't need to replace the original files with the (identical) DLC files.

well i imagine if lodiine was capable of using properly installed dlc/updates there could be a speed boost gained from loading somes files from SD and some via USB HD....split the load same reason for th speed boost helping people playing from disk, but eshop users wouldn't see a boost as it would be loading the "speed boost" files and the game from the same media


but yeah its not possible atm anyway

yes, if DLC could be used with loadiine, these packs would help speed wise.
I think DLC needs IOS hack, it's the one reading the meta.xml and provides access rights to folders.

Thank you all for your replies.

Can I confirm then please, that if I spoof to 5.5 and buy the disc, I will be able to access the online parts no problem?
Will I be able to access the eshop to download these 'speed' packs?

if you access the eshop now via (nnu-patcher) you can pre-emtively download the speed packs, and if you use the genuine game disk the speed packs would work fine, and unless nintendo pulls out any tricks online *should* work fine too

You can play Xeno Online if you have "Real" Version. Every Original Game can play Online with Spoof. Played Skylanders etc.

Sorry for my noob question,
But would that give us access to HDD using Xeno game with Loadiine ? not for loading the rpx but the game files? that way we can practically use HDD to store the files for other games instead of having to buy large SD cards. Do you think something like this could be possible? like load rpx from SD card with mii maker and then load game files with Xeno from HDD? or is this impossible or way too complicated and doesn't worth the effort?
