Hey all I had 3 questions for yas....
Whats the most popular USB Loader everyone uses? From what I can gather wiiflow seems to be the most popular(I could be wrong) I have been using usb loader gx and am pleased with it but(i guess since its not the most popular its not the best supported). Can anybody tell me why it seems to be more popular as I have found it to be slower. I have also found better compatibility with gx e.g. ios reload games csi series will work with gx with block ios feature enabled (default use global settings works as well) but when i use wiiflow and set ios block it just kicks me right out. I have followed the update guides and have all proper ios, cios, wads, etc files so this shouldn't be an issue I am running version 4.3u any advice would be appreciated. I currently have totally updated usb loader gx and wiiflow channels on my soft modded wii. I also cant seem to direct wiiflow to a certain path for the cover files and basically had to duplicate on the sd all the cover art so wiiflow would work(I understand gx can configure different paths to search for files but wiiflow apparently doesnt(unless I cant find it)
Ocarina cheats with usb loader gx you can edit each games settings with a cheat option. When in that option for the first time a message will pop up "error no file found" then it prompts you to download the cheat txt file. Once finished you are able to select various cheats. Is there a website which lists conflicts with certain codes e.g. need for speed undercover selecting unlimited nitros turned "on" in fact disables them. I dont know if its because of other cheat codes turned on as well.. the first time I played I had the money or ranking cheat turned on(or all cars accessable cheat turned on) and it basically lowered my money to the point that I couldnt even purchase the first car which in turn made the game unplayable Other cheats freeze the game or just don't even work. I am a little confused since gx loads them from a reputable site. Is there any way to manually input cheat codes into gx. I cant seem to find the way since it automatically wants to go online to search. Also for instance while searching for sonic unleashed cheat codes it returns cheat code file not found, not sure what it is searching for but there are two versions rsve8p and rsvp8p i think i have the pal version so its not finding it through the automated search. BUT looking on the gecko website there are codes for sonic unleashed. so I figured I would manually input them but for some reason I cant find the way to manually input them from gx(if I can remember you used to be able to).... since I had the different version I basically just added the .cfg file generated from the gecko website and placed it on my sd card into the proper codes folder and then enabled ocarina to on well at first I named it wrong so when loading it said no cheat code file found and it loaded properly... I then renamed the cfg file the right way(again generating it from the gecko website and deleting old saving new) then the game froze upon startup.....
Another thing is certain codes seem to go into certain "debug" modes such as in sonic to change the value of the rings... do I need to change the actual cheat code(hex value of course) to get them to work or is it something in the actual game itself I need to do.....
Any help is much appreciated especially on conflicts with certain ocarina codes! Thank You!

1. Its all preferential. GX does seem to have better compatibility. Wiiflow creates its own type of cover art files from the downloads, which is why it cant use the same ones as CFG, GX, etc.
2. WiiHacks does not support cheating. Not going to get any help here with that.
thanks for the answer but I am a bit confused because what I did was went into the gx cover art files and just copied and pasted the .png files into the wiiflow and instead of them having to search for them online(which would be horrendously slow since I am using a cell phone hotspot as my connection) i put them into the wiiflow folder and they started to pop up(albiet very slow as well but at least popped up without having to go online).. so since there would be no help with #2 and three can those IOS reload games be compatible with the other usb loaders without doing too much configuring(gx is very minimal)
#2) thats odd that there is no support for ocarina although I do respect a websites rules. For me its not about trying to one up someone online etc etc but for my little kids to help them play a game would be wondrous....

I have never had any luck with getting the cover paths to work either. To keep the clutter off my sd I just have wiiflow download them (It creates .wfc files in the cache folder, which are the cover files)
