    Soo, recently (as a lot of you probably are aware) the OoT-romhack 'The Missing Link' has been released. I have patched an N64-version and it works on an emulator on my phone and PC, so I tried injecting it into OoT(USA) WiiU. It seems to work, but for some reason the A-, B- and C-buttons do not display at all throughout the game (which means that for example I am unable to see the ocarina-melodies.) Anyone who has had more success with this rom hack?

    Did you use this website with the WAD file and the tml_wii_vc.bps file to patch the WAD directly as suggested in the official instructions or did you try manually injecting it?

    What I did was I took the .n64 ver of OoT and patch TML into that using the website, and then inject the n64 rom into WiiU-VC OoT to try and retain gamepad controls. It is functional up to a certain degree but if we cannot see the c-button icons it's kinda hard to learn the new/different ocarina melodies :P I might give the wad way a go later but I'd prefer to use the gamepad controls instead of a wiimote+chuck, feels more ..natural :rofl:

    Edit: patched and installed a wad, only to find out it requires a classic controller which I do not have around atm... :sad:

    Edit2: I have also tried to replace OoT on the (eur) gc zelda collection disk and inject that into a wiiu installable, but that will only black-screen when I try to start OoT from there. The other games on the disc do work though. I suspect that the patched rom being half the size (16MB) as opposed to the unpatched (32MB) might be the issue in this specific case.

    Edit3: g*ddamn I keep editing :P I tried the patched n64 rom with Not64 (wii-homebrew n64 emu) and got pretty good 60FPS results untill I tried talking with a character. When I tried talking to someone I got a stack dump hard-crash, and had to power cycle the entire Unit :rofl2: Maybe I'll have more success with Wii64, but that is a story for another time my children :P

    Patching the VC wad directly is probably the way to go. I think a vWii forwarder would allow it to still use the gamepad.
    Edit: If you make a forwarder to launch the game using the vWii NAND Title Launcher from https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-wiivc-injector-script-gc-wii-homebrew-support.483577/
    Then gamepad should work.
    You can also inject USB Loader GX or WiiFlow and use it as a menu to select and launch any vWii channel, I think. But you can't launch games from a USB drive when using WiiVC injects like this. If there are any Wii or GC (with Nintendont) games you also want with gamepad support you have to inject them as WiiVC directly, or put them on SD where WiiFlow can still see them (but USB Loader GX doesn't support Wii games on SD)

    It's so weird you say that you tried to inject it into the GameCube Zelda collection only to get a black screen, because I tried the exact same thing last week as well to the same result. I gave it 2 attempts at that, one where the new file size replaced the old file size and another where it builds dummy data to fill up to the same exact file size of OoT on disc. Both attempts yielded the same failed result unfortunately.

    I tried the wad+injector method, and both cc-emulation options result in the game booting to a screen saying "you will need the classic controller" at which point the entire system locks up... Now does the injector mention that some titles would require some kind of patch to be applied to the wad, but the link that should open a page with instructions just sends me to the Google frontpage :rofl2:.

    Anyone got some tips/tricks or possibly another method to getting this rom hack to go on U? :ph34r:
