    Hi this is a mild annoyance that i've been having for over a year now, everytime i try to use YAWMM to install wad files it crashes on my wii u (exception dsi occurred), instead i have to use an old wad manager by waninkoko made years ago, the problem with using it is that it does not work with the new wiimote+ that came out a couple years ago so i have to use a very old wii mote i still have from like 2007.

    JoostinOnline any ideas? I read a post in another forum of someone who was having the same issue and you tried to help him but he never responded.

    Same thing happened to me! I just downloaded WiiMOD Lite http://wiiuhax.com/wii-mod-lite-v1-2/, it has support for all wiimotes, including the new ones. It works fine for wad installing from what I've seen so far.

    I encountered this when I added a couple dozen VC wads to the folder. Removing them prevented the crash. Not sure if it is a specific wad, the number of wads or what.

    Use this YAWMM. Specifically designed for Wii U.

    The app works fine, but with certain wads it crashes when navigating to the containing folder. If i remove problematic wads, while leaving other wads in the folder, there are no problems. Are you suggesting that this is because my sd card is formatted as fat32? Have you observed this issue and did changing the format resolve the issue for you?

    it's been a while, but i encountered this issue on my Wii U in vWii mode. This is how i fixed it. I use mac to transfer files to SD card. I just removed the wad files starting with dot, like ".loader.wad", i also renamed the wad file to avoid any special characters or spaces and was able to install WAD with YAWMM successfully!

    Yeah, those files are created by Finder when you use it to to copy files to the FAT32 file system, because FAT32 doesn;t support extra data for files, which Finder uses to correctly organise your files. This doesn't happen in Apple native file systems, because it supports having that data in an actual system itself.

    This small issue also causes problems in HBL, I plan on forking the project and fixing that up at some point.

    I really just need to add this to the vWii Guide so we can link to its section when people ask this question from now on.
