    Punctuation makes Homer blah, blah, blah...

    WBFS Manager stores images on your pc's hard drive, separate from your sd/usb device. Full front-back covers go in ROOT:\wiiflow\boxcovers, 2d covers go in ROOT:\wiiflow\covers. There is no '3d covers' folder, only 'boxcovers' and 'covers'. Not all games have full cover images uploaded online. Some may only be available as front cover images.

    Whenever you have any strange problems with wiiflow like this, you can generally try deleting wiiflow.ini from ROOT:\wiiflow\. When you relaunch the app a new one will be created, hopefully fixing any errors present. Your settings will also be deleted, but you can re-enter them. Also be absolutely sure the gameid is correct, not mistaking an O for a 0 or the like.

    By the way, and I'm not digging on you here - I'm just letting you know, if you make another post lacking in punctuation, I would be very inclined to ignore it.

    the way to get your new covers to show up is to find out whe the game ID is and delete that game ID frome the cache folder. Once you start wiiflow it will load your new cover.

    Hi, I have been using Wiiflow without any problems for ages now. However, last night I did a clone for my friend using WBFS Manager and tested his new Harddisk to find out that Wiiflow loads without any games in the library (no covers shown). I checked my Harddisk (the source used on WBFS Manager) to find the same. However, when I checked form a PC via WBFS Manager, both Hard disks still have the games on them. Also, this is not the first time I did a clone via WBFS Manager. But it is the first time I left WBFS Manager running over night doing the cloning process as the source has over 50 games. What could I have done wrong this time other than leaving it running over night? Having read this thread, I think I should try deleting the wiiflow.ini file for a chance.

    that should do it. then once you start wiiflow it should show all the games. I have cloned many many hdds and i copy everything but the wiiflow.ini file due to the same problem. good luck

    You would have to do a Google search ...I have the SpongeBob Boating Bash game on my Hard Drive using Wiiflow and that game cover doesnt have a Boxart Cover just a Plain Flat cover since nobody has made a boxart 3D image for that game...so there wont be any back to the cover at all untill sombody makes one...
