    Talking Wiiflow 1.1 Help

    Working great from my USB and looks the nuts.

    However, I installed the Starnight Channel forwarder with wad manager that came with th wiiflo download. The channel appears and animates ect, but when i click on start the loading screen comes up then wii restarts.

    How can i sort this as having to go through homebrew is a drag.

    IOS249 rev13, 3.2E,

    You need to put the Wiiflow folder in a FAT partition on the HDD. If you fully formatted your HDD to WBFS then you will need to install one of the channels instead.

    Yeah, ive got a partitioned drive WBFS as Primary and Fat32 Secondary with the Wiiflow directory on the Fat32.

    Although i did un-rar it straight to the root of the FAT32 and not in G://Wiiflow/ folder so this could be the problem?

    well that didnt work. Put all the files like this:

    G:\\Wiiflow\

    on the fat32 partition. removed the channel and re-installed and it still does the same thing resets after load screen.

    Is there a fix for this?

    1.3 Installation of WiiFlow on Harddisk
    -------------------------------------------
    It is necessary to split your Harddisk into at least two partitions to install
    WiiFlow on it. One is the WBFS-partition which contains all Wii-Games
    and the other is a FAT16- or FAT32-partition and contains the WiiFlow-data.
    (If you already have a single WBFS-partition on your harddisk, you need to
    reformat it into two parts. You will lose all installed games then).
    If you got this, you can just copy the content of the archive to your external
    harddisk. You should get the following path:
    USB:\wiiflow\language.ini
    WiiFlow will save all settings and files into the directory USB:\wiiflow\.
    Exception: If you put a SD-Card with the entry "data_on_usb=no" in wiiflow.ini
    into your Wii, WiiFlow will use the SD-Folder instead of your harddisk.
    It looks like the folder you unzip to on the HDD should be G:\wiiflow\language.ini, and the stuff that gets saved by wiiflow will be in G:\Wiiflow\

    I all way wondered why them readme files are included.

    Your right about the folder name, but the readme is confusing. Is the partition on your HDD FAT16 or FAT32? On my SD card the folder name is wiiflow with the language.ini inside of it.

    If you have had a beta version of Wiiflow, please delete the cache folder.
    If you have a FAT partition on your HDD, wiiflow will always use it instead of your SD card.
    You may also want to try a different forwarder.
    Also, can you set both partitions as primary and/or active.

    Trying to set up my wiiflow loader here myself without any joy, what caught my eye in this post was regards quote : you need to put the wiiflow folder in a fat partition on the HDD ""

    downloaded and installed the wiiloader on the sd card which I use in the wii, please tell me that you dont actually need to have a folder within the actual hard drive you intend to use with the wiiloader ?? ie if I downloaded and installed it on the sd card tahts fine I can still acces teh connected external hard drive ??

    if this is the case can anyone advise exactly what folder / files I will require on the card itself ?? and does the wiilow folder have to be in a fat or fat32 formatt on the hard drive ??

    as I say have the actual loader on the wii , tried everything but will just not recognise my gard drive ??

    I am new to this. Please guide me. What are the main advantages of Wiiflow. Can it be used on SD card that has fat32 already. Will it modify anything further on Wii? I have neogamma7 and usbloader already.

    Any link where I can download it from.
    Thanks in advance.
