Good to know, all this will be helpful for my re-write of the guide. It's just about done, I'm just awaiting input from the other mods before I edit it here. I know there's ways I can make the guide simpler, I'll add you into the special thanks section cause you've provided some very helpful info
Edit: You were right, my stupid computer decided to turn on the "hide known file extensions" option lol, now I can do it through Windows.

Guide update added! Still working on the CFG and WiiFlow sections, will post again when they're done
Edit: there are still some minor edits to make to the guide but it will definitely work as it is now, I have deleted my USB Loader GX and Basic Loader and followed this guide myself, all went flawlessly
More to come
Edit 2: Well, that's about it. I think any other edits I make will probably be just attachment updates, typo fixes, clarifications...stuff like that. I'm pretty happy with the guide as it is now, but obviously I want the readers to be happy with it so any feedback I get goes towards making it better.

Hmm... I just tried this tutorial, using the usb loader gx. I'm a little confused, not surprising, as this is my first attempt at wiihacking. I followed the guide, but I notice there is nothing in the guide about actually installing devolution, so I googled it and found a download link on GBAtemp to install. Did that, but now GX says Error: to run gamecube games with devolution you need the loader.bin file in your devolution path.
I do have the right path set, but there is no loader.bin file in the devolution folder. What is loader.bin, and where can I get it?
Devolution doesn't get installed, it simply sits on the SD card like any other Homebrew app. Just download my supplied attachment for which ever USB loader you want to use and everything you need is included. All you have to do after that is follow the instructions to set the correct rom path and make sure your ISOs are stored accordingly so they can be displayed.
About there being nothing in the guide about installing Devolution though, I did say the following in the "About Devolution" section
"Possibly the best part about Devolution is that it is an app (boot.dol) run from your SD card. No installation required and no risk to your system."

Wow... I went through all the trouble of manually ripping the 2 games I wanted to play, (F-Zero GX and Metroid Prime) because of the (imo) pointless anti-piracy measures, and then I find out that 1 doesnt load some textures properly, and the other doesnt even work at all....
Call me harsh if you want, but I'm totally unimpressed with Devolution so far.
As with any emulator/ISO loader, it's bound to have some compatibility issues (even Dios Mios won't play every game perfectly if at all). Sorry those games are giving you issues, perhaps they will be fixed in a future update.
But out of curiosity what type of USB drive are you using? Last I tried Metroid Prime I had 0 issues.
