  2. i got the legend of zelda twilight princess but every time i try to load up the game it loads for a second then crashes (i also unpacked it)

  3. does anyone have any alternatives when it comes to mac becuase i homebrewed my wii u and im starting to feel like it is a huge waste of time.

  4. Pretty sure the part you sped up when selecting where to install your games is the exact same thing as choosing the "download" directory. In other words, you've done an unneeded step (by choosing a download location twice) and created a bit of confusion for first-timers.

  5. Need help. i got paper mario Color Splash and everything worked fine exept that i get the invalid Disc error 150 3032

  6. When I try to open USB helper it says there is an error and I've tried uninstalling and installing it manually it but still won't work.

  7. you can also right click the downloaded game and select prepare for emulation and then later add the game to your steam library if you're anything like me to create a central hub for games
