Oh and a quick question, ok i have two HDD, a unpowered 320gig one that i use for my GC games, and a 1tb HDD that i use for my Wii games, no would it be possible for me to have both gc and wii games on the 1tb HDD, and if so i sssume i would need to make a partition, and if so would it matter what one i had first, i was thinking gc on the first partition and wii games on the second, do you know if that would work, any infoi would be appreciated bud.
That's easy

FAT32 the drive

Gamecube games go in /games/
Wii games go in /wbfs/

My /games/ folder for GC games (use Dios Mios Toolbox to transfer them)

My /wbfs/ folder for Wii games

Obviously Wii games need to be in wbfs format (use Wii Backup Manager)

Exactly and if you use either program to transfer the games over they will auto split up any games larger than 4GB (FAT32 limitation) and will play fine.

Great, still cannot get the gameseek adapter towork, and i cannot get the gamecube games to appear in the usb loader so i can launch them from there, but all are on the one hdd, the wii-u pro controller works a treat, and i just launch nintendont from within the usb loader brew menu and away i go.

The gameseek adapter works a treat also on the dolphin emulator.

This may sound simple but are you enabling USB Loader GX to display GameCube games?

ie: Click the icon that sorta looks like an NES to the right of ABC and ticking the "GC Games" box.. I've never had an issue with it displaying them

Yeah i tried that, they appear with no issues on another usb loader, but that one does not seem to support nintendont, but no big deal, i can launch nintendont from within usb loader and the games all appear and run great, so just a niggle, and this is the best i have i have got it all running, so i dont want to go bugger it all up. lol

Wii-u is awesome, throw homebrew into the mix and the machine becomes a god, why the hell Ninty have not had a big digital gamecube release on the wii-u, with the surprise launch of a official gamecube wireless controller, then sit back and watch their profits soar is beyound me, th wii-u loves gamecube games, are they mad or what. lol

Picked up NFS MW-U

I'm shocked how well this game looks on the Wii-U.. I was expecting major downgrades from the PC version but..

NOPE

While the Wii U may not be the strongest, but the edram helps a lot with the visuals.

Obviously..

It's weird. Of all ports.. An EA one is one of the best ports I've seen. Just shows when a developer puts their mind to it the Wii-U can deliver graphically on a Next-Gen(ish) level.

I really hate that the Wii-U sucks so much.. I mean just look at all these crappy games I've been "forced" to buy and enjoy and not instantly trade in.

Mario Party 10 sucks.. Worse one easily..


Got my Amiibo bundle in the mail today.. This game is bad.. Nothing imaginative about it.. No "story mode".. The normal Mario Party mode is about as cut and dry as you get

Select it
Pick character
Pick Board
Level starts

No grand entrance.. No attempt to add a story line or any kind of atmosphere.. Just pick a board and go

Bowser mode is boring and unimaginative also. Nearly the same concept as above except you spend most of your time watching 4 CPU players play and random mini games to keep them from advancing to you.

This might be the most boring Mario Party I've ever played...

Also.. The having to randomly switch between the Gamepad and Wiimote annoying as hell

Yup and the gpu being nearly twice as fast as the one on 360 that is already stronger then on ps3. And having 2gb ram + edram vs 512 ram on ps3 and 360.

And supposedly the processor is bit faster then 360 one. Still they are atm developing a new console need to see what it will be in 2017.

A really good game, probably the best use of the gamepad i've seen.

Quite expensive for the length though.

Just a small reminder that today the second Mario kart pack opens, and also we get our hands on those 200c races.

Add me if you would like a easy win.
