i set up hb, loader GX (usb2/wbfs) & triiforce (usb1/fat32) for my games (2 partitions on WD 200G usb drive) over a year ago - all worked well. i have updated the wii to hb 1.1 & d2x cIOS v8 Final (usb2 is now ntfs & working fine), which appears to have broken triiforce which i guess won't work with the new 249 version. so now i'm trying wiiflow & wonder if :: i have to reprocess nand & games or can i just follow the guide beginning at setting up wiiflow :: i can put the old version of 249 somewhere so it can be used for wiiware :: i need to move all the nand files from root to /nand or to usb2 or other steps?
i'm able to play wbfs backups fine, but the wiiware games that played fine with triiforce just give me black screen & require hard reboot (my power strip makes this easy). i even added another game with showmewads, and its there, but same black screen. the ios updater says it put 56 in 249 (cIOS249-d2x-v8-final.wad) like other posts mention. in case it helps, here is my ini file in the spoiler below (on my sd card - would like it to work there since little kids aren't reliable to remove it and replace it for games saves). also would like the games to sort alphabetically, but when i set sort=1, no sort occurs, and next time i look HOMEBREW & NAND say sort=0. at one point it showed my wii channels with small icons like triiforce game covers, but i dont know how or why since it was only once. would be nice to have the same display for wiiware covers instead of it trying to turn 192x112 png into a standard wii cover. smallbox=yes appeared in the ini but has no effect now on what i see.
thanks for any help
the wiiflow ini is on the sd card, path of sd:/apps/wiiflow - there is no sd:/wiiflow - with the problems listed above - i have one on usb1 as well, but that one doesn't get changed at all.
Try it without the sd card in at all
i copied ini from sd to usb1/apps/wiiflow; usb1/wiiflow folder is there. if i boot wii without sd card, when i load wiiflow i get stack dump & reset. if i leave card at boot, go to wiiware game, remove card, hit play, it sits on WiiFlow ...o screen, unresponsive.
update1 - now if i try to play a wbfs backup it gives me a "remove disc and read manual" screen.. guess i'll reinstall wiiflow now.. loaderGX & CFGloader work fine
update2 - got wiiware working now with sd card in..
is there a line i can put in ini to take wiiflow directly to usb1 & nand emulation? family is already used to GX & wiiflow will only be used for wiiware
thanks again for help
I have been trying to figure out how to doWiiflow nand emulation now for the past 6 months. I have yet to have any luck, I have followed the guides over and over again. I have tried having wiiflow on the SD card and then on the HD, I have tried having the SD/nand and USB/nand and when i go into wiiflow it only finds the real nand. Could someone please lend me a hand? I am not sure what info you need to help.... I currently have wiiflow on the USB and my nand on the SD, I go into the options in wiiflow and select full emulated nand and select the source as SD and when it goes back it is black and is telling me to select a game partion.
ok, if u followed this guide, extract the contents of the nand foder to the root of the sd card, then go to wiiflow and press A on the icon in the bottom right of the screen (looks like channels)
Yes and I have done that. It brings me up the NAND on the system. and then I press B to bring up the settings and select my SD as where the partition would be. Then i hit apply and it goes back to the screen with two options and nothing. Just still my real NAND.
