    Unhappy

    First off, I'm a huge newb to the Wii homebrew scene (as one could easily tell from my measly post count) but I've spent my fair share of time with the soft modding of other consoles and computer tech in general so hopefully I can talk on a decent level with you folks.

    Okay, so Wiiflow recognizes my drive, games, and plays them perfectly fine. The only issue I am having is getting game covers to show up. Since Wiiflow is so [bloody] gorgeous, this is a big issue to me.

    I've tried downloading directly through Wiiflow, but it will only go through the process and continue to tell me that files can't be found and will leave me with 0 out of # covers downloaded. I've got my fair share of old games (Super Mario Galaxy) so it's not a case of the files not being uploaded online yet. I am curious if nothing downloads because of my wireless internet security (WPA2)? Or is it possibly because I have a SDHC card? I have been able to do online updates for other homebrew programs, so I know it's not an issue of my Wii simply not being connected to the wi-fi.

    Well, that's not the end of the world. I can always just download the covers manually. But somehow this doesn't seem to be working either... I don't know, maybe I'm putting them in the wrong folder or something, because I had also been reading up on USB Loader GX (what I was trying to use initially before discovering Wiiflow). Who knows, but I feel like I'm doing it mostly right. I've noticed many posts calling to remove wiiflow.ini but... I've never seen that anywhere within my SDHC card. The USB drive I use in conjunction with Wiiflow is NOT partitioned (only WBFS) so it should not be a case of the ini file being saved to it, correct? Where is it then? Can it just not save to my SDHC card (the write switch is "unlocked").

    This really shouldn't be any issue but I seem to have the skill of making things go wrong at every turn. Am I just overlooking something supremely obvious?

    Not sure what kind of tech info you might need to assist me... I'm running Wiiflow 1.1 (IOS249). Initially used cIOS installer cIOS38r17. Homebrew Channel version is 1.0.6. The Wii console is currently at version 4.0U.

    For both of the previous posters I would suggest using the file download and instructions in the original post. I try to avoid having anyone on any older version of Wiiflow than r25 due to its various incompatibilities and bugs.

    @motc - Assuming you're on original 1.1 then updating to r25 might fix it. Your wiiflow.ini file is in the SD:\wiiflow\ folder. You can try deleting it and see if it works, but if it doesn't or the folder doesn't exist, try what I suggested above. Also edited your post for language.

    @Ithian
    I originally grabbed my copy of Wiiflow from WiiFlow USB Loader - Downloads. I take it this was not the r25 one? Hmm, how then do I go about updating it? I simply launch it through the Homebrew Channel currently.

    There are some ini files in the wiiflow folder, but no "wiiflow.ini". Strange, but not altogether unheard of. Also, sorry for my language gaffe!

    You can check by loading Wiiflow and clicking the ? balloon on the game selection screen. It should tell you which version you're running at the top of the screen. Wiiflow always generates a wiiflow.ini when the app launches for the first time, and if one doesn't exist a new one will be made. If it isn't in root:\wiiflow it might be in root:\apps\wiiflow which means you're running a version later than r25. These are all considered betas by the designers. Most of them work but have various issues, amongst them I believe is an issue with displaying covers.

    To change versions you need to replace the boot.dol in root:\apps\wiiflow_folder\.

    Thumbs up

    Thanks! I went and grabbed a more stable version and now when I try putting the box art in manually OR downloading it directly through the program it works. I now see the wiiflow.ini and and find the program a ton more beautiful than it already was.

    Thanks again for helping a newbie out! Now I'm going to mess around with themes.
