    WiiFlow Installation And Settings


    Starnight theme for Wiiflow USB Loader by Jiiwah[/center]

    WiiFlow is an open source usb loader which features a full 3d box, front-and-back "coverflow" interface. When Hibernatus, Wiiflow's designer, completed version 1.1 he left the project and released the source code. Over the last year it has been resumed by Narolez, who has since retired, and picked up by r-win and Miigotu (who currently lead this project).

    Magnificent. I just installed and adjusted my WiiFlow reading from allover the web. And when I finished, I found that brilliant FAQ. Beyond any words. Thanks a billion. Can't add a letter. Thanks again

    Dude, this is absolutely beautiful-looking. No offense to the makers of USB Loader GX, but I'm going for asthetics, now that my Wii is running quite smoothly. Thanks!

    Yes you can. You can have as many loaders as you'd like on the console at the same time.

    You want to have it at usb:\wiiflow\music. Remember that Wiiflow will only recognize .ogg music files as well, so if you have an mp3 you'll want to convert it.

    Progressive video setting?

    Do I need to set Progressive in each games settings, or is is sufficient to just set it in the global settings? I'm a bit confused. If I do just set it in the global settings, what should each game be set to? Default? I'm still a bit new to all this, but loving every moment!

    Games not seen, no settings buttons - FIX

    All of a sudden I couldnt see any games or settings buttons or titles...although channel loaded (via forwader from USB) and background music played....arrgh!!

    Well it seems that clicking the star button to make a favorite causes a corrupt wiiflow.ini

    Have tried with no parental control, setting fav on in settings but using any combination hitting that star button meant no covers, no titles no buttons, nothing. Also tried on 3 different themes (after fixing) with same result each time

    You have NOT - repeat NOT lost or corrupted your games so don't go formatting your drive!

    Fix - Simply hook up the USB/SD to your PC, go into wherever your wiiflow folder (not the one inside apps folder) containing .ini files is and delete wiiflow.ini

    The next time you start wiiflow channel this will be recreated as if it was a fresh install.

    Re-installing forwader channel via wad manager did not fix this..just get rid of the wiiflow.ini

    Hope that helps someone else.

    EDIT - Wife did it again! - Here's some carbonic theme DO NOT CLICK buttons and also game hangs cover for any that you have not fixed as yet.

    - EPIC FAILURE:CAN'T SEE TEXT (looked ok in fireworks)

    - EPIC FAILURE:CAN'T SEE TEXT (looked ok in fireworks)

    - EPIC FAILURE:CAN'T SEE TEXT (looked ok in fireworks)

    - EPIC FAILURE:CAN'T SEE TEXT (looked ok in fireworks)

    Downloading source code - see if can be removed from menu...
