I learned that CPU requirements for Yuzu emulator got very reasonable recently with the addition of a multicore option so i decided to give it a go. I was amazed to see that my old i3 could emulate Mario Oddysey at fullspeed most of the time.

I already played through the game on an actual Switch so I'm probably not going to play it again on Yuzu any time soon, but it could be a good option for some people if they have a better setup for higher resolutions and the option to turn off dynamic res.

Been a while since I last posted. Been dabbling in a bit more WiiU homebrew. Had a wfds file and realised that I needed to convert it to install via WUP. My mate showed me a program for it Tecon WiiVC injector, but I feel like an idiot. I downloaded it from github, got a folder with lots of gooseberry fool, but no .exe file there. The program is supposed to run on Windows and let you convert your wfds stuff to a format for WUP, but I can’t even figure out how to run it on windows.

Anyone know what I’m doing wrong here?

I suppose another way of wording that is, how do you get WBFS files into a format that can be installed using WUP installer? Preferably using a program that will run on Mac OS, but can do windows if needs be.

You're on the right track with TeconMoon's WiiVC Injector, but it sounds like you might have downloaded the source code, rather than the .exe version. Try the Mega or GDrive links on the GBATemp thread. That should convert wbfs files into a folder structure you can drop onto your Wii U SD card, then install that via WUP.

I can't think of any OSX alternatives unfortunately, it's been a long time since I used a Mac for modding.

I'm not up to date on Wii U hacking, but GBAtemp has this...

https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-wii ... rt.483577/

Seems to have links to the program your talking about. Might be a better version than the one you found on github.

EDIT: What Chocolate-Milk said.

Check out some of our stuff!

I've been trying to inject some GC Isos using TeconMoon and WUP installer using some GC Isos from 'the drive' but the injects for FZero and Eternal Darkness cause the Wii U to shut down just after their loading screens.
I don't know why it's doing that. The F Zero one is definitely the US version so I wonder if it's that?
Could we get some PAL versions added to the collection :shifty:

Have you tried Nintendont with those?

I think I have Nintendont on the SD card through Teconmoon. If that's what you mean?

I use Nintendont on mine and don't inject GC games, just pop the ISO's on my SD card and they play through that. I also use ColdBootHaxchi if that makes a difference.

I kept having the same problem with some of mine, but I was never able to figure out what the problem was. I'd suggest just fiddling around with some of the options in TeconMoon, like memory card emulation or maybe the video patches. If you're using any usb controllers or adapters, try unplugging them before booting the game. I regularly had problems booting with my mayflash adapter plugged in, but they'd start fine with it unplugged. Also maybe check you've got the latest Nintendont release?

To be honest I just gave up in the end, and now I load my GC games through a USB Loader GX forwarder channel.

Wii U USB Helper is really good for actual Wii U games. You run it on the PC and it downloads Wii U game from the Nintendo servers or whatever and copies them straight across to your external hard drive to run on the console. Don't think it does much for the Virtual Console titles, though :(

I might be barking up the wrong tree, but are you loading some CFW before running them? For Nintendont stuff I need to load MochaCFW first. For stuff launched from the HBC though I don’t.

Thanks folks. I think you’re right about the source code. The links on GBAtemp for TeconMoon we’re playing up, but I’ll try them again today. I’ll need to take a look at USB Helper as it sounds good.

Nope, has access to all VC games that can be played on via Wii U.

I have a bunch of Wii/GBA/N64 installed (Which includes all Zelda games)

Oh I know, I just meant that any Wii games that aren't available on the Wii U eshop would have to be injected manually.

I used USB helper to create the injects and that worked for F-Zero but Eternal Darkness still causes the Wii U to shutdown so I've no idea what the problem is!

How do you play the VC games from USB helper? When I tried one it said the account that purchased it was missing

Do you use Homebrew Launcher? Before Coldboot I’d have to start the Homebrew Launcher via the browser then select the Mocha option from what I remember.

Anyone know how to fix the dark filter on the WiiU VC? Any hacks out there for it? I’ve had a look and can’t see anything.

Also, I’ve yet to do any wii stuff that isn’t officially on the wiiU Gc. I read that to do wii and wiiU you need 2 separate hard drives. Is that still the case if you do wii games as wiiU vc injects?
