    WiiFlow Covers

    I have WiiFlow r417 using NAND Emulation. I am having trouble finding cover art for a lot of the games. In addition I need covers for the emulators like FCEUltra and SNES9xGx and Homebrew. I don't find any homebrew packs with covers for games. Also in the titles.txt document on the wiki there is no cover code for most of the games. Is there a way to get covers for these games or does WiiFlow have to change the .dol or something to recognize them? Here is what I need covers for in WiiFlow:
    C-Dogs
    duck hunt
    giddy3
    helium boy
    kids paint
    mad bomber
    masteroids
    missle command
    open tyrian
    pacline
    pie chart
    project gmc
    project panic
    simon
    still alive
    teeter torture
    wii cross
    wii dash
    zeRace

    Wiiflow will download the covers in settings. If it doesn't find the ones your missing, you can search and find the pics. Save to pc, then rename to gameid.png, as in the games id #. Then put in covers folder.

    I don't think GameTDB has homebrew app covers. You can either make some (like I'm doing) or get someone else to make them for you. As for games, go to the WiiFlow settings (while at the games list) and select the "Download" button on the first page. Then click on "Missing" to download all the missing game covers. There is also an option to download titles on the same page. Do that as well. For channel covers (like HBC, Photos, etc.) go to the channels list and repeat the above steps.

    Homebrew

    I understand downloading the covers. That is not the prob. How can I add covers to the homebrew if WiiFlow does not have a game code for them. Is there a way to manually add a game code that wiiflow will recognize and in turn add my custom covers to the homebrew games? Also can you share your custom homebrew covers that you say you are making?

    You'll need to know the ID of the app or channel (click on said app in WiiFlow, then go to settings and the ID will be at the top). Then add an image to SD:/WiiFlow/boxcovers/ID.png (2D covers go in SD:/WiiFlow/covers/ID.png). And I have currently only made one cover. It's for the backup homebrew channel. I'm working on a Riivolution one. I'll probably upload them to GameTDB, eventually, but if you really want it now PM me or say so here. Note that the covers of some channels (like WiiFlow and WiiMC) can just be copied and renamed to be the covers for their corresponding HBC apps.
