  1. There were no checks that the codes I used corresponded to the email addresses used when pre-ordering. So they appear to be easily transferable if you’re not feeling it.
  2. Well despite all the strangeness both my orders have been completed thank goodness. I wonder if I will get the 5% from topcashback against the full £2449... *Edit its £449 isn't it.
  3. At best its a hack to get around the limitations of purchasing via their website without them having to change anything. But it screams scam and will surely generate a lot of confusion, distrust and trigger many inquiries to their customer service.
  4. I did. And it has confused me also. Reads like a scam if you ask me (boost the pre-order price by £2000 and give me a voucher to that value). But they got my pre-order numbers correct..... If this is legit its really badly thought out. Their website is down so can't go direct to check.
  5. The name of the ISO folder on mine is captialised so maybe thats it. It should be: pspemu/ISO not pspemu/iso
  6. Installing to internal should work fine I think. Never transferred from internal to external myself. But no reason it shouldn’t work. As for card size - it depends on what you’re using it for. If it’s just for transport between pc and console. 32Gb should be fine. If you’re running emulators though you need to run them from the Sd card and that includes the roms. So Retroarch images like the one discussed above can require a lot of space. That said you can always cut them down. The 100Gb image can be cut down to about 60 just by removing all the pc engine cd games.
  7. Re-running haxchi every time is a bit of a pain. It’s not like the PSP where once it’s run it’s only negated by a hard restart. Every time you turn the machine on you will need to run it. it doesn’t take very long. But it’s most annoying when I just forget to do it and try and run something non-standard. I’m definitely going to do the permanent hack, just need to get round to it. The wii u supports external USB storage so you don’t need to do anything special there. Just plug it in so the wii u recognises it. It format’s it itself. I have got an externally powered caddy for
  8. Just to update on this. I’ve now tried it with a U3 class card. Takes 40 seconds now wi which is far more usable. I’m guessing the card I used originally may actually be a fake as it’s the same class and make as the one used by Filth.
  9. Sandisk Ultra U1 128Gb here. Takes 1 Minute and 27 seconds to launch from the Forwarder I have installed on the Wii U homescreen. Almost double!
  10. @jonnyalpha Here is the structure of my SD card. I've underlined the files which I copied onto it from the RETROARCH image. Note that the retroarch folder in the root is different to the one in wiiu/apps.
  11. Retroarch takes far longer to start than 30 seconds for me. More like 2 minutes. Lord knows what it’s doing. I’ve got a U1 class sd card for reference.
  12. I presume you formatted your SD card as FAT32? (Windows does not make this easy - particularly as I had to subsequently mount the SD card explicitly in Windows Disk Manager to even see it in Explorer.)
  13. Been playing with the retro arch build today. Lots of work clearly gone into it. And when it works it’s great. But my god loading anything is extremely slow. Even booting the front end - to the point where I thought it had crashed. Been trying arcade games mostly and several have crashed requiring a hard reset. Will persevere though and the bezels are a nice touch. Kirbys pinball land on Gameboy was worth the 80gig download on its own.
