I had it ever since i softmoded and used the guide by gen3sf on USB loading never wanted to change as i never had problems with it it loaded my games perfect.....GX the best and easiest usb loader out there

Today i chose to format the whole drive to fat32 and use CFG Loader(wii games) uLoader(vc/wiiware)......
(just makes it easier one partition for everything)

The best choice i made so much easier to maintain no more wbfs manager crashing etc taking long time to copy game.. HAPPY

Wii Game Manager 1.5 so much better...

USB:\wbfs\2010 Fifa World Cup [SFWP69]\SFWP69.wbfs etc

my HDD

\apps\cfg>boot.dol
\wbfs(wii games)
\usb-loader(cfg files)
\nand(uloader vc/wiiware)

    I haven't switched to a full FAT32 HDD, but I have purchased a small 320GB HDD and have WBFS and FAT32 partitions just to experiment with a dual partition HDD. I think that the combo that you are using is good, I also plan to setup uLoader to run ww/vc games, unless something else comes along before I get around to doing it.

    I still have my original GX also. I use WiiFlow mostly and have a fat32 partition. I like the idea of how you have yours set up, but just recently partitioned mine and backing up replacing the games is so time consuming. I am going to give the wiiware/vc another shot, using uloader this time. I Failed last time with triforce =(

    I moved from ntfs/wbfs HDD to ntfs/fat32 HDD a few days ago I can safely say that this is the way forward.
    No more "do you want to format drive ..." messages when i plug in my hard drive.
    I can edit, back up so much easier
    I dont use wii game manager I may have to look at that one I use wii backup manager and wiiflow

    i was going to use ntfs but you cant rip the disc through wii.....
    I can safely say that this is the way forward.
    game manger is just a nicer GUI

    the ntfs is just for my movies, music & photos to reside
    the fat32 is where the games are.

    game manger has a nicer gui..cool, backup manager is a little plain and boring.

    yes...The guide is currently in development by Gen3SF give it a week or so

    All you have to do is make a folder on your fat32 partition call it wbfs...then use wii game manager google it and use it to convert your iso into .wbfs files.....

    and thats it drag your sd to the fat 32 partition...make sure you use forwarders that look for the .dol on usb not just sd

    Say ehm... I have been using Triiforce since it's released to play my N64 games, but now I wanted to try uLoader. However, uLoader keeps asking me to format my partition to WBFS, which I don't want. So, my question to you, Cile, how can I get VC running via uLoader? :p

    hi cile I'm setting up my new hdd now and firstly my hdd root looks a little different to yours. i copied my sd card to the newly formatted fat32 ext hdd and also created a wbfs directory. my hdd looks like this.
    /apps/cIOS38_rev14-Installer/boot.dol
    ///changelog.txt
    ///icon.png
    ///meta.xml
    ///readme.txt

    /apps/Dop-IOS MOD/boot.dol
    ///icon.png
    ///meta.xml

    /apps/Hermes_cios_installer/boot.dol
    ///icon.png
    ///meta.xml

    /apps/NeoGamma/boot.dol

    ///meta.xml

    /apps/priiloader/boot.dol

    /apps/usbloader_gx/boot.dol
    ///icon.png
    ///meta.xml
    ///rev.txt

    /apps/WAD-Manager_v1.4/boot.dol
    ///icon.png
    ///meta.xml
    ///readme.txt

    /config/gametitles.txt
    //GXGameFavorites.cfg
    //GXGlobal.cfg

    /images/2D/
    //disc/
    //""bunch of game cover images.png""

    /wad/neogamma R8 b7.wad
    //USB Loader GX-UNEO_Forwarder.wad
    //USBLoaderGX-r850.wad

    /wbfs/<.wbfs games i will add>

    installer.log


    the above directories are exactly whats currently on my sd card, except the wbfs directory. and what I currently use to play games on my wii, both via dvd and ext hdd. But regarding the forwarders I'm not too sure how to make them look for the .dol on the usb.

    Also as I was just going through the tutorial ""Full hacking guide for 4.2 system menus!!!! by messie"" to see if there was help help there, regarding the forwarders.I went through the guide and I'm not 100% sure if I completed steps D4 & D5 but I definitely know I didn't complete D6 & D7 as it was optional and I didn't want to push my luck. would it hurt if I did steps D4 & D5 again, just in case I didn't do it before.

    thnx

    @SP1N3R the guide is done it will be up ...soon it will inlcude the forwarders everythign you need to load of fat32 drive.....this is for d4

    for d5) yes i do recommend installing hermes cios look here for that http://www.wiihacks.com/other-faq-gu...222-223-a.html


    and i strongly recommend you install priiloader its brick protection...it will stop retail disks from asking for update and if somebody accidentally clicks update it will give error.(instead of loosing your softmod)

    Hi cile

    Thanks for the advise, I have now installed hermes cios v4 & v5, ios 202, 222, 223. Also just installed priiloader too.

    by the way, can I now remove ""IOS70-64-v6687 [Patched][FreeTheBug].wad"" file and hack.ini files off my sd card?

    Thanks

    hi cile
    Im trying to follow your guide http://www.wiihacks.com/other-faq-gu...tml#post399504 and from what I can see, is that Ive done most or all these steps, but on my sd card, what I would like to know is that, for me, do I only have to copy the sd card to my newly formatted fat32 usb ext hdd, and follow your guide from the ""OPTIONS SECTION"" (Usb Loader Forwarder Channels) all the way down to and including (Install cIOSXrev19)

    or do I need to follow the whole guide.


    THANKS
