    Okay my wiiflow loader is starting to look well smart now that I have a decent amount off games / covers on it !!! couple off requests if anyone could help me out ??

    Recently d/loaded the cover for the game F1 2009 from the wiiflow cover search, unfortunatly as anyone else who has d/loaded this particular cover via wiiflow will know the cover is very stretched - just does not look right !!

    anyone able to upload a new cover to the releavant wiiflow cover site ?? not sure if you actually can add another cover to a site which has the cover already / possibly able to edit ??

    also have installed " sports party " and " summer sports " unfortunatly when searching for covers for both games both are comming up with the sports party cover, so need to remove and d/load the proper " summer sports " cover if anyone fancies editing this particular cover on the relevant wiiflow cover site ??

    as I say " summer sports " is giving the cover from " sports party " !!

    cheers guys-

    LOL I know what you mean. But im a bit of a fussy sod when it comes to perfection. lol. ie only F1 (now thats a good game and not likley to be deleted) cover seems to be a stretched one

    Will have to just hope someone uploads full covers to the sites it checks.

    I know what your saying about the F1 cover mate. I was gutted about that.

    As for the duplicate cover, its probably the case that whoever uploaded it numbered it wrong possibly.

    To add covers, the png must be named with the 6-digit game id for the game it goes with then added to sd:\wiiflow\covers.
    ok, but what about channels missing covers. wiiflow doesnt even have a cocer for the wiiflow channel. tried naming the png to DWFA (which i founf in titles.ini file and edited the titlesdump.ini and added DWFA=Wiiflow ( i assum thats what i needed to do, this file seemed to have the game id of every game i hae on my harddrive) and the image never showed up. i used an existing image as a template in photo shop and resaved it DWFA as file name to make sure the png kept proper rez and everything

    What you quoted was information from over a year ago, as is this thread. It's okay to not dig these old dead beasts up from the grave. Applications have advanced a serious ways since then.

    You need to take your image and title it XXXX.png -- where XXXX is the 4-digit titleid for the corresponding channel it represents. Place this within the appropriate folder on your SD card or usb hdd. The name of that folder eludes me, but it's housed within your covers folder and should be easy to sort out. When the channels section is launched through Wiiflow it should automatically display once the channel is detected. No editing of .ini files should be necessary.

    If you haven't already, update to the latest r304 of Wiiflow.

    And to lay this old dog to rest, thread closed. Any further questions concerning Wiiflow go in the guide. Tutorials section.
