    Emulators and Snaps

    Hey Guys
    I finally got my wii soft modded, and have been playing with various emulators etc... I was wondering if there is such thing as a all in one download that has the snap shots of games to match the game names? I am finding that to have snap shots I have to manually save each screen? seems like tones of work...

    Do they make an all in one emulator? I tried tetrarch wii but it seems to just crash....

    Depends on what snap shots you're referring to. If you're talking about snap shots of the games box art or title screen, possibly. If you're talking about save states, that's less likely.

    If I spelled something wrong, I'll just blame it on auto-correct

    Hey
    I have seen people running software like wiiflow with emulators, and they show all the boxes for each game. I bought a wii to make the ultimate emulator machine, however I am finding that I have to manually set up everything. I was wondering if there was a program that was all in one with snaps or boxes etc.. to save all that work? IS there a naming tool or something?

    thanks

    Box art cannot be displayed in emulators, only the USB Loader apps which can only show Wii and GameCube games.

    Hey
    I just found this.http://gbatemp.net/threads/cover-col...upport.324714/... seems to be a project for artwork for wiiflow... however even if you have all the artwork, wouldn't you have to name each image to the same as the rom? do they make matching sets? The stuff people are doing with wii flow is impressive, but I don't have hours to spend customizing it.

    I believe so yes. You should be able to download the cover art through your loader and that would take care of it for you.

    I am not so sure the emulator covers are there, only wii games I thought. The emulator roms could have so many different names, I do not think there is a standard naming scheme. Unless they use a certain rom set?

    You can have covers for your roms on wiiflow, pretty easy to set up, once you have your covers use FuzzyRenameEXT wiiflow friendly to change the cover names to match your rom names, once that's done place your new named covers into wiiflow in the boxcovers folder, each emulator needs a individual folder for its set of covers........your SD or USB path should look like this
    SD/wiiflow/boxcovers /name of emulator
    Please note box covers is for full wrap around covers and the covers folder is just for front covers only!!
    With the link you posted your on the right tracks. No offence intended to anyone on here but as much as wiihacks is a fantastic and very helpful forum, it would appear wiiflow is a project that has been developed by members of that particular forum.
