Thread: Question on USB Loader GX

  1. #1

    Question on USB Loader GX

    Just like to check with you guys, which version of USB Loader GX accepts storing game/disc covers & cheat codes in a FAT32 partition of the harddisk used for storing the games itself?

    Any form of assistance is appreciated. Thanks.

    Doesn`t the latest GX Loader actually run the games off the FAT32 format, not just covers, like CFG Loader?

    I was initially using the r5XX version so when I set the path to start with USB:,
    the wii actually hanged. Just updated to r815, & everything seems ok now.
    I can now use the same harddisk to store my images & cheat codes,
    so don't have to use the sd card for that purpose.

    Yes, so no need for WBFS anymore

    1 single drive, all 1 single FAT32 format, can be seen by Windows, Macs, *nix machines & Wiis, can play games, movies, TV Shows, MP3, WiiWare and now the loaders are catching up with the format

    Don't forget, the TV & Movies you can play on your Wii can just as well be moved to your lappy or PC to carry on watching later on

    WiiFlow will be next as it has gone open source so I expect FAT32 support very soon.

    That is pretty neat.. but my question is would it still compress/scrub the size of the iso when changing it over to a FAt32 drive now. Also would it see 1Terabyte as Fat32 now or do you still have to partition it to 2 500's.


    Thanks

    It does compress and scrub to the same as on WBFS. But you have to use a different program to install your games because WBFS Manager doesnt deal with FAT32. I use Wii Backup manager 0.3.3 for a FAT32 drive:

    Yes, ofc it does, and you can actually see the games in a normal folder on any machine, and copying them is so much easier from drive to drive, it's like just drag & drop like you do anything else in windows.

    The problem with WBFS is that it is just so unmanageable & cumbersome it is now becoming pointless to go down that route.

    And have a read of this thread, that Game Manager is much more intuitive

    Wii Game Manager - GBAtemp.net

    Now would WBFS Manager let you transfer the contents of your whole drive to a FAt 32 formatted hard drive, becasue I really don't want to extract one iso at a time (have over 65 of them)? to my newly formatted FAT32 Drive.

    Thanks
