    I have no fucking idea.
    Right, if there was a thread I were to ask that in, I apologize for this thread, but can someone explain the need for specific xml files for games?

    Im new to the Wii U scene, but not to console scenes in general so Ill be able to pick up on it quickly. Is there a list of games that need specific XML files or something? Thanks!

    simple : all games needs them.

    Loadiine is designed to use them, and you should.
    The games without the xml are not the default behavior, it's a fall back and it's using a default value (which are often not compatible with games).

    If you don't have a XML pair, use the one from Smash Bros.
    but first, look on the wiki page, there are links to some xml packs for few games.

    you can also use Nusgrabber and cdecrypt to get the xml from games whith updates available on nintendo servers.
    it's even recommended to do it, so your game is up to date, and with all needed files.
