What is the Wii U Plugin System?
The Wii U Plugin allows you to load multiple plugins on your Wii U which enhance your experience. For example you can mod your games, use USB controller, swap your gamepad and TV screen and much more.
How to build
A detailed instruction can be found in the Wiki:
To load the plugins, you need the WiiUPluginLoader, you can find it here.
Last but not least you need to build the plugins that should be loaded. Plugins depend on the "WUPS library" installed in build step one, other dependencies are optional.
This is a (maybe incomplete) list of currently available plugins:
- HID to VPAD:
Port of HID to VPAD. No configuration is possible yet, all controllers map automatically to the game pad, pro controller mapping not support. Network client is working.
- Screenshot plugin:
Simple plugin that take a screenshot by presing L+R+ZL+ZR on the gamepad. Button combo can be changed.
- Streaming plugin:
Gamepad streaming tool. Requires the StreamingPluginClient
- SD Cafiine:
Port of the orignal SDCafiine (https://github.com/Maschell/SDCafiine). No NTFS support yet.
Swaps the TV and gamepad screen via a buttons combo.The button combo can be changed.
Port of the DiiBugger.
- WUPSPluginPlayground (Various other demo plugins):
This repository is supposed to hold serveral small testing plugins for the Wii U Plugin System. Most of the plugin are either really small (Padcon, NNU_Patcher) or are just for testing / gathering information.
Configuration of the plugins
Plugins can register to the configuration menu. This configuration menu can be opened while running any application (e.g. while gameplay).
Just press L, DPAD down and minus on the gamepad.
This does only work when the game is allowed to open the home menu.
Settings made using the configuration menu will be saved to the SD Card and reloaded the next time the plugin will be used.
For logging (for example of the loader) you need to start the UdpDebugReader on a computer in the same network. This has been created by @dimok789 and can be found in the tools folder.
Future and contribution

Some files are based on brainslug by Chadderz:
Much stuff also wouldn't be possible without dimok789. He made many great tools and homebrew this stuff in based on (Makefiles, Mocha, homebrew channel, udp logger, dynamic_libs etc.)
Also thanks to everyone who made actual exploits.
