    USB Loader GX Settings

    I have seen many posts on how do I setup USB Loader GX.

    Here are all the settings described, quoted from their site.

    [SPOILER="6 Settings *****"]
    This is where you customize the behavior of the program.
    [/SPOILER]


    ###################################

    [SPOILER="6a Gui Settings"]

    These are the settings that affect the behavior and feel of the GUI. Your settings are saved when exiting back to the main screen, change custom paths, change views in the main screen, and a few other times.

    App language ***** --- If you have a language file to translate this program, you can select it here. You can change the path by clicking it at the top of the screen. The button in the lower right will restore the default (English).
    NOTE: Newest revs will automatically load your language if it is found.

    Display --- In the list view, you can chose to display the selected game's region and ID here.

    Clock --- Choose how you want the clock displayed.

    Tooltips --- Enable tooltip help you with the various buttons and options.

    Flip-X --- This changes the behavior of left and right on the game prompt and Grid/Carrousel. If it feels un-natural, change this setting.

    Prompts/Buttons --- Select whether or not to apply the widescreen fix to prompt windows and certain buttons in the GUI.

    Keyboard --- Choose between different layouts for the on-screen keyboard used in the GUI.

    Discimage Download --- Select what discimages have to be downloaded
    Only Original: Always get original discart
    Only Customs: Always get custom discart
    Original/Customs: Get original discart. Get custom discart if original is not available
    Customs/Original: Get custom discart. Get original discart if cutom is not available

    Wiilight --- Change the behavior of the disc slot light.

    Rumble --- Turn rumble on/off.

    Auto init. network --- Turn this ON to automatically initialize the network at boot. If a new update is available, you will be asked if you want to download it.
    IMPORTANT: Turning on this function may cause malfunctioning of the loader and games!

    Titles from XML --- Choose if you want to ignore the titles stored on the xml file (in wiitdb.zip) or titles.txt and use the ones stored on the WBFS.

    Screensaver --- Set how long it will take to activate the screensaver in case of inactivity. The screensaver switches off the Wiimote.
    [/SPOILER]


    ###################################

    [SPOILER="6b Game Load"]

    Change settings that have to do with the way games are booted. These will be use as default if you don't set any specific settings for that game.

    Video mode --- Select the video mode to use for games. Most games work with disc default. If this doesn't work, try console default. Then if you still need to, try forcing your region.

    vidTV patch --- Patches the signal after the game has rendered it in the mode selected in video mode. If none of the video modes work, try this.

    Game language --- The language that is passed to the game when it is booted. If the language is supported by the game, it will be used in game.

    Patch country strings --- Use this for Japanese imports.

    Ocarina-- Turn on/off the ocarina cheat engine. You need gct files in the cheatcode path mentioned earlier.

    Boot/standard ***** --- Select the cIOS that is used to boot the program into.

    Quickboot --- Choose if you want to skip the game prompt when starting games.

    Error 002 fix --- With certain IOS, some games show an error that says "blablabla, 002, blablabla. Don't be a pirate." Turn this on to fix it.
    Anti: Some cIOS have 002fix build-in. Unfortunately, this makes some games unplayable (the reason for this is that there are 2 types of 002 fix, and some games won't play with the one found in some cIOS). Activate the Anti002fx to play these games. Known games that need Anti002fix (they use 002fix on with some cIOS): Burger Island, Diabolik The Original Sin, Ghostbusters, Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings, MySims Racing, Nutrition Matters, Solitaire And Mahjong, Takt of Magic
    [/SPOILER]



    ###################################

    [SPOILER="6c Parental Control"]

    Settings for parents to control what content their kids see. Everything in this document with ***** beside it is hidden/unusable when the application is locked.

    Console --- Click here to lock/unlock advanced features. Requires password to unlock.

    Password ***** --- Click here to set a password. When locked it's shown as ********

    Control level ***** --- Set the level of parental control here. Games will be excluded from the game list based on this and the settings you have for them in the game-specific settings. Also shown as ******** when the loader is locked.
    [/SPOILER]


    ###################################

    [SPOILER="6d Sound"]

    Settings related to audio are here.

    Background music --- You can chose custom BG music to be heard in the application here. Click the path at the top to change it. Format is OGG. Keep in mind that bigger songs will result in decreased memory available for other functions. It is possible to completely crash the loader with big files. Try to keep it <3MB to be safe. If you want to rock out to your music, use a media player. This is a game loader.

    Music volume --- Pick the volume for the BG music within this application, not in the games that are booted.

    SFX volume --- Pick the volume for the sound effects within this application, not in the games that are booted.
    [/SPOILER]

    ###################################

    [SPOILER="6e Custom paths "]

    Below paths the program uses are customizable. Click a path to browse for its new destination.

    3D Cover Path --- For 3D boxart. When properly defined, 3D cover art will display in List and Carousel views by default.


    2D Cover Path --- For 2D boxart. When properly defined, 2D cover art will display in Grid view by default.

    Discimage path --- For Discart.

    Theme path --- For themes.

    XMLpath ---For wiitdb.zip

    Update path --- Used for updating the dol. If you are using our forwarder, it loads dols from this path.

    Cheatcodes path --- For gct & ocarina use.

    Txtcheatcodes path --- For txt files holding the codes for the code manager

    Dol path --- Contains replacement dols (Alternate dols) for certain broken games.

    Homebrew apps path --- Where you place your homebrew apps for the Homebrew Loader.
    [/SPOILER]


    ###################################

    [SPOILER="6f Update "]

    Click to get updates online. Just because there is a newer revision than what you are using does not mean that it will be on the update server. Also, you get the choice to update dol or update all. The last option will update the dol, HBC icon.png and meta.xml

    It is also possible to update the full channel (This will also download wiitdb.zip). The channel needs a small change in the code before it can be updated. If you have a channel and you see the update all button, you can not update the channel. You have to get another one.
    [/SPOILER]


    ###################################

    [SPOILER="6g Default settings "]

    Click here to restore default settings. You can also delete GXGlobal.cfg to do this if you get an error at boot.
    [/SPOILER]


    ###################################

    [SPOILER="6h Credits "]

    Look at the people that made this application possible. You get to rock out to some cool music, too. In the upper right corner you can see your rev# and the cIOS that your are currently running.
    [/SPOILER]



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    [SPOILER="7 Game Settings *****"]

    Settings are available on a per-game basis from the prompt window. These settings have the same effect as the global settings, but are only used for the selected game.
    NOTE: If quickboot is enabled, you cannot change the settings. So make sure you configure them before enabling quickboot.
    [/SPOILER]


    ###################################

    [SPOILER="7a Game load"]
    After making changes, you must click the save button for them to take effect!

    Alternate dol --- This is for advanced users only. There are certain games that do not run because they reload IOS and this causes the USB to be dropped.
    Select a dol: Use the next option to browse for an alt dol on the WBFS partition
    Dol from SD/USB: Extract the proper dol from the ISO (using wiiscrubber) and name it with the 6 character game ID and put in the dolpath.

    Selected dol --- If you put Alternate dol on 'Select a dol', this function can be used to do so. (Even if the box is empty, you can click it)

    Save --- Writes the settings that are on the screen right now to the GXGameSettings file, behind the current game ID.

    Link to USB Loader FAQ FAQ (USB Loader GX)

    Link to USB Loader Downloads Downloads (USB Loader GX)


    There are three ways to install and use USB Loader GX,

    From the HBC , extract to apps directory on SD card
    usb loader GX.rar

    As a Channel, copy to wad directory on SD card, install wad with wad manager, or method of your choice
    USB_Loader_GX-ULNR-r719.wad

    As a Forwarder, copy to wad directory on SD card install wad with wad manager, or method of your choice
    USB Loader GX r778 - ULNR.wad

    Differences with between each set-up.

    1. From HBC, select HBC then select app.
    Plus - no Wii memory used
    Minus - requires SD card

    2. As a Channel, load directly from System menu.
    Plus - You can use without an SD card or a second partition at you USB HDD
    It starts around a second faster
    update also works for channels
    Minus - It takes about 1.8 MB more space at the Wii Memory that the forwarder does.
    If you use it without an SD (or a second partition at you USB HDD) you can't save your settings, you don't
    have covers and disk images and you can't use cheats (ocarina)
    You don't have the cool loading screen

    3. As a Forwarder , load directly from System menu.
    Plus It takes 1.8 MB less than the channel of your precious Wii Memory
    Update works on Forwarder
    If you want to manually update its faster and easier than the
    channel as you only have to replace boot.dol (or elf)at your SD/USB
    You don't have to update the forwarder.
    It has the cool loading screen
    Minus You need an SD card with the dol file to be able to use the program
    (or a second, fat32, partition at the usb device)(NTFS new feature)
    It's a second slower to start the program compared to the channel
