    Better way or program to organize games from USB HD

    so i have all my games on a WD Hard drive. I have many games, but would like to put them into folders i.e, fighting, action, sports etc.....does USB Loader or any other program allow for this possibility?

    thanks, mark

    Also, make sure to download the full release. Extract to the Apps folder; on the partition you made on the HD. (i usually do 31gb to keep the fat32 FS) Then its exatcly like setting up the SD card for homebrew installation. oh yeah make sure you have wad installer. to install it as a channel it comes with three or four different "themes" feel free to choose the one that suits you best. if any more question follow the Guide here by Ithian

    Yep that's correct. GX and Wiiflow right now can only display by favorites or through parental controls. I think the feature to sort by controls, # of players, genre, etc. was suggested to the Wiiflow devs and is being worked on for a future revision, but progress is kind of slow right now.

    Try out Configurable USB Loader dankduke, if I remember right it has the sorting features you're looking for.

    If you're on 4.1 stick with it. I updated before I found out about wiihacks and modding. 4.2 is just meant for killing homebrew. If someone's already on it and you want to point them in the direction of the guides there are 2 in the same forum as the dogeggs 3.1-4.1 guide.
