    What a shocking concept, documentation for a program being stored in the same location as the program it refers to instead of being dumped in the root of the disk drive.

    To be fair having a file titled "README.txt" right in the root kinda smacks you right in the face, it's right there soon as you unzip the file...it should be hard to miss when it's in the first place you see.

    If I spelled something wrong, I'll just blame it on auto-correct

    That could work.

    That's going to turn out pretty badly if any other programs decide to do the same thing.

    ...which is why the readme in SNES_Master's download isn't just named "readme.txt"

    And for reference, other Wii homebrew already do this - I know that Brawl Minus puts its readme in the root.

    That by no means indicates it's a good idea.
    If people's bad habits are catered to, they have no incentive to change them. Homebrew apps shouldn't be dumping stuff anywhere outside their own directory.

    What an excellent informative read me file that was. I got some games working on my wii u with the sd card using the basic loader.

    I can move the game images in to sub folders so they work with the other loaders with out having to revering right? My understanding is the verification files are the only ones that can't be changed.

    Now that I got this working I am going to try Nintendo maniac 64s method to see if it works for USB to sd transfer. Is there another place where that process is detailed better than in this thread? Feel free to pm a link

    Is there any chance the gamepad could be added as a supported controller in the future? That would be so awesome. I don't see why Nintendo can't add it as it would make the vWii way better and therefore make the Wii U more appealing. They should also update the Wii to support the Wii U pro controller to make the pro controller more appealing (and heck if your doing that you may as well allow the gamepad to connect to the wii as a classic controller even if it would not have video).

    It can be argued that they aren't, the README file is not used by a homebrew program itself. It's very possible that they expect the user to not just blindly extract the archive to their SD card/USB drive but rather copy the apps folder and/or any extra folders included.

    And even if the user copies over the readme, so what? It's not a crime. The presence or lack of a README file does in no way effect how a Wii homebrew program works.
