cant import mario Kart for wii u


Recommended Posts

I'm having a strange issue.  no matter what i do launchbox will not import mario kart 8.  i had this issue in the past.  I was able to get past this issue with a suggestion given to me here to import it a custom console like  "test 1" and then after the game imports, edited it to the correct data but thats  not working neither.  Any ideas?

let mey try to launch launchbox as normal and not as admin

Well, that is one issue. We do not recommend running Launchbox or BigBox as admin. It is not needed and can mess with emulators/other software ran through Launchbox that may require elevation.

ok, so changed it so launchbox does not run as admin.  i was able to use drag and drop, but still same problem, after the normal process, at the end i get " 0 games imported"

There is a chance than it got imported at sometime and may be hidden. Do you have any of the options to hide games missing media checked?

I think I may have found something, so my folder structure for this game was bad, it was like this  Mario kart 8->Mario Kart 8 USA-> contents of the game,  i moved everything to just one folder and now it imported.  weird.  I guess launchbox didn't like the file structure ?  going to verify this now on my sons computer and report back
