    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).


    [a] Special Announcements
    [SPOILER="Click Mii"]Wiiflow G2C
    Here's a little program you can use to convert the WiiTDB genres to categories for Wiiflow:

    1. Select the "titlesdump.ini" file (this is selected automatically if the drive is connected and it's in the wiiflow\settings folder)
    2. Click the Update button (the mappings.ini file is loaded and applied)
    3. Fix the genre-to-category mappings (as required)
    4. Click the Output button to save the "categories.ini" file.

    New version for current Wiiflow. It no longer requires the "titlesdump.ini" file, instead it parses the wbfs folder. Only works with FAT32/NTFS drives.

    Wiiflow G2C

    WBFS vs. FAT32

    As development on Wiiflow has progressed support for WBFS drives has waned. If you've found yourself having difficulties running Wiiflow with a WBFS formatted drive (black screens where you had none before, long delays loading into Wiiflow, skips and delays while sorting through your games in the app itself) know that you aren't alone.

    For me these "glitches" were consistent and very, very annoying.

    I've recently reformatted my hd to FAT32 and have seen all loading problems with the latest version of Wiiflow vanish. In fact, it now works as well for me as R25 and seems to load nearly as fast.

    My personal recommendation if you're experiencing these types of odd behavior, and you have a WBFS formatted drive, is to reformat to FAT32 and give it a shot.

    Wiiflow Fanart Creator

    Our good member richardsito has posted information on a couple great little apps which lets you customize your own fanart and video trailers for Wiiflow! These features are limited to current releases of Wiiflow, so if you're still running good ole r25 you'll need to skip out on them or update. But for everyone else, check out:

    Wiiflow THP Video Converter


    I wasn't aware of this website until I saw it in a linkback post to this guide. Check it out: It's a whole site on the latest version of Wiiflow complete with instructions, pictures, and other cool info. And guess what? It's maintained by the guys currently spearheading the Wiiflow project.


    Anyone who is updating from an earlier revision:
    Due to a lot of changes, also in the configuration files, you might experience problems when you upgrade your current version to this new version. In case you experience unexpected behavior, or a code dump, please try to start from fresh.
    Requirements and Downloads
    [SPOILER="To run Wiiflow you will need:"]
    1. Homebrew Channel
    2. At least one of the following: cIOS 222/223/224/249/250 (222 version of Wiiflow recommended)
    3. SD Card with at least 100MB free (or a FAT32 partition on your USB HDD)
    4. FAT32/WBFS/NTFS formatted USB HDD (FAT32 recommended)

    [/SPOILER][SPOILER=Latest Downloads]These can always be found on the Google Source downloads page: Downloads - wiiflow - Project Hosting on Google Code[/SPOILER][SPOILER="Wiiflow 2.1a2 Downloads - Thanks to Krank for the links"]Extract the apps folder directly to the root of your device then follow section A or B below to finish the installation.
    Follow Section C if you want to store the application's data on your Wii console (older version).

    You can also find some forwarders for Wiiflow on Krank and Cile's FAT32 guide.[/SPOILER]
    For a comprehensive list of features/updates see the Changelog at the bottom of this post.
    [SPOILER="Archived Downloads - Includes 5 forwarders and R25-compatible themes"]For this archive section I've brought together forwarder channels from the original package, as well as all 25 original themes (plus 7 more not included in the original download) into one .rar file.

    V1.1 R25 Full Download (66.19MB) (mirror)
    Included Files(Abbreviated):
    -Carbonik Channel Forwarder
    -Spayrosam Channel Forwarder
    -Starnight Channel Forwarder
    -Static Channel Forwarder
    -Narolez Nforwarder
    -32 themes


    **If you experience any issues, check the Troubleshooting Section below and the Readme Files before asking for help**
    [SPOILER="A. Homebrew Channel"]Run Wiiflow_222/223/224/259/250 depending on the IOS you want games to load from by default.

    Remember to install Hermes cIOS (rev 4/5) if you want to run Wiiflow_222-224.

    Default IOS can also be changed anytime in Settings (see section [6]). All application memory is stored on the SD Card or USB HDD using this method.[/SPOILER][SPOILER="B. Forwarder Channel"]Download the R25 Full pack in the archived section above to get the forwarders.

    Choose and install a forwarder through Wad Manager using IOS249 (or any trucha-signed IOS). The
    forwarder channel will look for and load Wiiflow from an SD Card or a FAT partition on your USB HDD. This
    will consume a small amount of memory on the Wii console and install a channel to the system menu.

    Once you have installed the necessary wad file, your folder structure must match the list below.

    Forwarder looks for these exact paths (in this order):
    * SD:\apps\wiiflow\boot.dol
    * SD:\wiiflow\boot.dol
    * USB:\apps\wiiflow\boot.dol
    * USB:\wiiflow\boot.dol

    If the forwarder is constantly rebooting to the system menu, you probably performed this step incorrectly.[/SPOILER][SPOILER="C. System Channel"]Download WiiflowR25 Channel
    (If you download this file, click here and tell Baboo77 thanks by clicking the Thanks button!)

    Select a WAD and extract to ROOT:\wad\, then install with Wad Manager.

    System Channels look similar to Forwarder Channels but contain the application's data within a single WAD file.
    Installing one of these means you won't need to place the application's boot.dol file on your SD card or USB HDD.[/CODE][/SPOILER]

    - Video Mode: Same as Global Video Mode, but used only for an individual game.
    - Language: Same as Global Game Language, but used only for an individual game.
    - Ocarina: Same as Global Ocarina, but used only for an individual game.

    - Error 002 Fix: Same as Global Error 002 Fix, but used only for an individual game.
    - ViPatch: Patches the signal after the game has been rendered from the selection made in Video Mode. If the other video modes don't work, try this.
    - IOS: Choose which IOS to load game from. Default depends on which boot.dol you used to load Wiiflow.

    Page 3
    - Download Cover: Downloads an individual game cover, replacing any already on file.
    - Block IOS Reload: Enables games that don't usually work due to IOS Reloads. Works ONLY if you boot your loader in 222 and the game in 222/223.

    • "Normal" means it will only patch video modes that have the same resolution as the one you've selected.
    • "More" means it will patch every video mode as long as its mode (interlaced or progressive) is the same.
    • "All" means it replaces any mode it finds.


    Manually Downloading and Installing Game Covers
    [SPOILER="Click to Open"]Game covers can be downloaded online from any site that supplies them. General sizes are 1024x680
    or 512x340. The higher the res. the better the image. They need to be in .PNG format and named with
    the appropriate 6-digit id code to match the game they go to. For example, New Super Mario Bros. Wii
    PAL edition game code is SMNP01. Thus the cover needs to be named - SMNP01.png

    Full Covers
    • USB:\wiiflow\boxcovers
    • SD:\wiiflow\boxcovers

    2d Covers
    • USB:\wiiflow\covers
    • SD:\wiiflow\covers

    Exception: If you connect a harddisk with a FAT- and a WBFS-Partition, WiiFlow
    will save its files to the FAT-Partition. To avoid this, you should open the
    file SD:\wiiflow\wiiflow.ini and add the entry "data_on_usb=no" in the category
    [GENERAL]. WiiFlow will ignore FAT-Partitions then. If wiiflow.ini isn't there,
    copy the one that has been created on the HDD.

    Autobooting from Priiloader
    [SPOILER="Click to Open"]With NForwarderWiiflow.dol in the root directory of your SD Card, power on your console while holding the
    reset button to load into Priiloader. Select Load/Install File. Afterwards, navigate to Settings and make the
    following changes: "autoboot=Installed File" , "return to=autoboot"

    After rebooting, this will automatically load Wiiflow when you power on the console and reboot to Wiiflow when you exit a
    game. To get your system menu back after exiting a game, change "return to=system menu".[/SPOILER]

    Adding Custom Music to Wiiflow
    [SPOILER="Click to Open"]If you want to have some music in WiiFlow, you can save one or more .ogg/.mp3 audio files inside of SD:\wiiflow\music or USB:\wiiflow\music.
    WiiFlow will randomly play one of these files each time you start it. If the file is played to the end of it, it will
    start over again. If you want WiiFlow to play another file, you need to do a restart by holding the B-button and pressing Home. [/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER="Click to Open"]Q. Something strange is happening / Worked before but doesn't now / Black Screen When Loading Wiiflow / Anything Else...
    A. Under certain circumstances the config file can get corrupted. Delete wiiflow.ini from ROOT:\wiiflow\ then reboot and reload the program. This
    will generate a new config file and hopefully clear up any issues.

    Try The Above First Before Asking For Help!!

    Q. I'm getting a black screen when I load a certain game(s), how do fix it?
    A. You probably have an out-of-date IOS revision. Go here.

    Q. The game loads the wrist-strap white screen, but freezes afterwards. What's wrong?
    A. It might be a bad dump. Try downloading a different release.

    Q. I'm trying to add music files to Wiiflow, but every time I load it either doesn't play or I get a code dump.
    A. Larger music files consume more memory from the application. Try using music files < 3MB in size. And again, make sure they're in .OGG format.

    Q. I can't download covers online!
    A. Wiiflow defaults to for its cover-downloading. Check that the site isn't experiencing slowdowns. You can always add them manually.

    Q. The forwarders aren't working, but I know I set the path right just like it says at the top of the page.
    A. You might have an outdated IOS35. Use NUS Downloader to download the latest IOS35, then install with Wad Manager.

    Q. I tried deleting a game in WBFS Manager and now none of my games work.
    A. Add your games back to the drive and try deleting your game from Wiiflow next time. Also check out ncWBFSTool which is, imho, a superior manager.

    ***Check the Readme files included with the download for other info not in this guide!***

    [**] Changelog
    | Wiiflow Changelog |

    New releases can be found at: Wiiflow Google Source

    To install any of these over your current revision, replace the boot.dol file in \apps\wiiflow\.

    Stupid typos screwing up my release zzzz.

    I got sick of it, the setting of paths seemed unfriendly on a fresh install, and
    the settings seemed illogical.
    It will now boot up no matter what and always create a wiiflow.ini if there isnt
    one. No problems booting from all SD, there is nothing to edit. It also boots
    faster this way.

    *wiiflow will now detect your boot.dol and look in the same folder for
    wiiflow.ini, if it is not found there it will not look anywhere else, it will be
    created there. its that simple.

    *language.ini and titles.ini will be read also from the same folder as wiiflow.
    It will not look anywhere else.

    *Data directories will be created on the same drive your boot.dol is located in
    drive:/wiiflow, to have boot.dol on one drive (say SD) and data folders on
    another (USB) set data_on_usb=yes.

    THE ONLY TIME you need to modify something is if you want data and dol on
    seperate drives.

    To make your setup work with this just put your ini's in apps/wiiflow and your
    data dirs in drive:/wiiflow
    and set the paths in wiiflow.ini. I know this seems stupid to change this but we
    need static paths and it was creating a massacre on the updater.

    * Updated language.ini, but I've forgotten which languages are changed. Jiiwah should be able to answer that

    * Fixed laggy buggy thingy
    * Added script to change about screen automagically
    * Updated Portuguese language (thanks to Pakatus)

    * Initial Hermes cios 222/223/224 rev5 support (depends on the compiled binary!)
    * Added support for MP3 music ( issue 85 )
    * Added ini parameters for ocarina with the different hooktypes (sorry, no interface yet!)
    - hooktype=0 (No Hook), 1 (VBI), 2 (KPAD read), 3 (Joypad Hook), 4 (GXDraw Hook), 5 (GXFlush Hook),
    6 (OSSleepThread Hook), 7 (AXNextFrame Hook)
    - debugger=on|off
    Note: these parameters MUST be defined in the correct [GAMEID] section. An interface is to be added.
    * Added saving playcount to the ini now. We don't use it yet, but we might be
    * Added function for sorting by playcount. Again, we don't use it yet, but we might be

    * Added changed to italian language by Cambo
    * Fixed annoying (small) bug in configuration window 7, where you had to click multiple times to change the partition

    Again, this is a BETA release. Some of my testers reported success with rev5. On
    my Wii, it just keeps freezing. Anyway, rev4 is still working fine.

    * Added support for new ocarina (Brawl+)
    * Fixed small issue with invalid amount of partitions
    * Added support for WIP patches
    * Added support for BCA codes

    * Location of cheat files, wip patches, bca codes and text codes is configurable in wiiflow.ini

    Note: this version will look for your cheat codes (gct files and txt files) in
    another location. You will need to manually move these to the correct locations.
    These locations should be in the directory that also contains the subdirectories
    for boxcovers, cache, themes, etc. and are called codes (for gct, bca and wip
    files) and txtcodes (for txt files).

    Thumbs up

    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

    don't hate me for this silly question: can i have USB loader GX and wiflow on the same Wii?

    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)

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