Certain Nintendo Wii U games require update to continue playing the game

Now if you are using CEMU to play the game, here’s how you can update the game easily so you can continue playing the game.

What you need:

1) CEMU, preferably the latest version and you have set it up. In case you need help on setting up CEMU to run on your machine, you may want to check this link: Setup CEMU on Intel-GPU PC.

2) The main game. Ensure you have unzipped it if it’s unzipped.

3) The update/patch. Ensure you have unzipped it if it’s unzipped.

Here’s how to update game on CEMU

These method works best for decrypted games (Game with .rpx). If you have encrypted games (game with .wux or .wud), you need to first decrypt it.

1) Run CEMU.

2) Load the game. Click on File > Load and choose the game (normally with .rpx extension).

3) Let the game run until it prompts you to update the game to continue playing.

4) Exit CEMU, by clicking on File > Exit.

5) Run CEMU again. This time click on File > “Install game title, update or DLC”.

6) On the browse window, navigate to the folder where you have extracted/unzipped the game patch/update. Find the meta.xml file (normally inside meta folder).

7) CEMU will begin patching/updating the game.

Once the patching/updating is finished, you can play the game.

    Hi there,

    I have BOTW running, though it’s showing ver16 in the CEMU menu. I’m aware it’s at ver200+. My file is also showing red. Game starts fine, go the pick up the slate in the shrine and it cuts the game and CEMU off.

    If anyone can help me with the files for the most recent update and the DLC’s, that would be amazing! =)
