Nus Downloader Alternative For Mac


NUS Downloader Alternative for Mac




NUS Downloader, or NUSD, is a PC utility that allows users to download, pack, decrypt, and manipulate many system titles from Nintendo's Update Servers (NUS) into WADs ready to install on Wii or DS(i) consoles. However, NUSD is only compatible with Windows operating systems, which leaves Mac users without an easy way to access the NUS resources. Fortunately, there are some alternatives for Mac users that can perform similar functions as NUSD.


FunKiiU and FunKii-UI




FunKiiU is a Python tool that can download Wii U content from NUS and decrypt it using the title key. It can also create custom tickets and patch the content to make it region free. FunKii-UI is a graphical user interface (GUI) for FunKiiU that makes it easier to use. Both tools are cross-platform and can run on Mac, Linux, and Windows. However, they require Python 2.7 and some additional modules to be installed.




Nus Downloader Alternative For Mac



To use FunKiiU or FunKii-UI on Mac, you need to download the source code from GitHub and install the required dependencies using pip or easy_install. You also need to obtain the title keys for the games or updates you want to download from a website like [wiiu.titlekeys.gq]. Then you can run the FunKiiU.py or FunKii-UI.py script and follow the instructions on the screen or in the readme file.


NUS WAD Packer




NUS WAD Packer is another Python tool that can download Wii system titles from NUS and pack them into WADs. It can also create custom IOSes and emulate updates for offline installation. It is based on wii.py, a library that provides access to various Wii-related functions. NUS WAD Packer is also cross-platform and can run on Mac, Linux, and Windows. However, it requires Python 3 and some additional modules to be installed.


To use NUS WAD Packer on Mac, you need to download the source code from GitHub and install the required dependencies using pip or easy_install. You also need to enter the title ID and optionally the version number of the title you want to download in the config.ini file. Then you can run the nus_wad_packer.py script and choose one of the options: pack WAD, emulate update, or install to NAND dump.


WiiQt




WiiQt is a C++ library that provides access to various Wii-related functions, such as NAND manipulation, IOS installation, title decryption, and more. It also includes some example programs that demonstrate its usage, such as nusdownloader.cpp, which can download Wii system titles from NUS and do various things with the files it gets. It can pack WADs, install directly to an extracted NAND dump, or save them as decrypted files. WiiQt is cross-platform and can run on Mac, Linux, and Windows. However, it requires Qt 4.8 or higher and some additional libraries to be installed.


To use WiiQt on Mac, you need to download the source code from Google Code and compile it using qmake and make. You also need to edit the nusdownloader.cpp file and enter the title ID and optionally the version number of the title you want to download in the main function. Then you can run the nusdownloader executable and choose one of the options: pack WADs (P), install to NAND dump (I), or save decrypted files (D).


Conclusion




As you can see, there are some alternatives for Mac users who want to download system titles from NUS for their Wii or DS(i) consoles. However, none of them are as simple and user-friendly as NUSD for Windows users. Therefore, Mac users may need to do some extra work to install the required software and configure the settings before they can use these tools. Alternatively, they can use a virtual machine or a dual boot system to run NUSD on Windows. Here is the continuation of the HTML article on the topic: "NUS Downloader Alternative for Mac" Comparison of the Alternatives




In this section, we will compare the four alternatives for Mac users who want to download system titles from NUS: FunKiiU and FunKii-UI, NUS WAD Packer, WiiQt, and NUSD on Windows. We will evaluate them based on the following criteria: ease of installation, ease of use, functionality, and compatibility.

As you can see from the table, none of the alternatives can match NUSD on Windows in terms of ease of installation, ease of use, functionality, and compatibility. However, among the alternatives, FunKiiU and FunKii-UI are the best options for Wii U users, as they can download and decrypt Wii U content from NUS and create custom tickets and region-free patches. NUS WAD Packer is a decent option for Wii users who want to download and pack Wii system titles into WADs or emulate updates for offline installation. WiiQt is a poor option for Wii users who want to download system titles from NUS, as it has limited functionality and requires more user input.


Tips and Tricks for Using the Alternatives




In this section, we will provide some tips and tricks for using the alternatives for Mac users who want to download system titles from NUS. These tips and tricks are based on our own experience and research, and they may not work for everyone. However, they may help you to avoid some common problems or errors that may occur when using these tools.


Tips and Tricks for Using FunKiiU and FunKii-UI





  • If you encounter an error like "ImportError: No module named requests" or "ImportError: No module named Crypto", you need to install the requests and pycrypto modules using pip or easy_install. For example, you can type "pip install requests" or "easy_install requests" in the terminal to install the requests module.



  • If you encounter an error like "ValueError: No JSON object could be decoded" or "KeyError: 'title_size'", you need to check if the title key you entered is correct and valid. You can get the title keys from a website like [wiiu.titlekeys.gq] or use a tool like [uTikDownloadHelper] to get them automatically.



  • If you encounter an error like "IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied", you need to change the permissions of the folder where you are running FunKiiU or FunKii-UI. You can do this by typing "chmod 777 foldername" in the terminal, where foldername is the name of the folder.



  • If you want to download DLC or updates for a game, you need to enter the title ID of the base game followed by a dash and a number. For example, if you want to download the update for Super Mario 3D World, which has a title ID of 0005000010145C00, you need to enter 0005000010145C00-1 as the title ID. The number after the dash indicates the type of content: 0 for base game, 1 for update, 2 for DLC.



  • If you want to create custom tickets or region-free patches for your downloaded content, you need to use the -ticket or -patch options when running FunKiiU. For example, if you want to create a custom ticket and a region-free patch for Super Mario 3D World, which has a title ID of 0005000010145C00, you need to type "python FunKiiU.py -title 0005000010145C00 -key xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx -ticket -patch" in the terminal, where xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx is the title key.




Tips and Tricks for Using NUS WAD Packer





  • If you encounter an error like "ImportError: No module named requests" or "ImportError: No module named Crypto", you need to install the requests and pycrypto modules using pip or easy_install. For example, you can type "pip install requests" or "easy_install requests" in the terminal to install the requests module.



  • If you encounter an error like "ValueError: invalid literal for int() with base 16: ''", you need to check if the title ID you entered is correct and valid. You can get the title IDs from a website like [wiibrew.org] or use a tool like [ShowMiiWads] to get them from your existing WADs.



  • If you encounter an error like "IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied", you need to change the permissions of the folder where you are running NUS WAD Packer. You can do this by typing "chmod 777 foldername" in the terminal, where foldername is the name of the folder.



  • If you want to download a specific version of a title, you need to enter the version number after the title ID in the config.ini file. For example, if you want to download version 544 of IOS58, which has a title ID of 000000010000003A, you need to enter 000000010000003A v544 as the title ID.



  • If you want to create custom IOSes or emulate updates for offline installation, you need to choose the option 2 or 3 when running NUS WAD Packer. For example, if you want to create a custom IOS based on IOS58, which has a title ID of 000000010000003A, you need to type "python nus_wad_packer.py" in the terminal and choose option 2. Then you need to enter 000000010000003A as the base IOS and follow the instructions on the screen.




Tips and Tricks for Using WiiQt





  • If you encounter an error like "dyld: Library not loaded: /usr/local/lib/libQtGui.4.dylib", you need to install Qt 4.8 or higher and some additional libraries using Homebrew or MacPorts. For example, you can type "brew install qt" or "port install qt4-mac" in the terminal to install Qt using Homebrew or MacPorts.



If you encounter an error like "error: 'AES_set_decrypt_key' was not declared in this scope", you need to install OpenSSL and link it with WiiQt using qmake. For example, you can type
