    Wiiflow Covers

    Hey there. I'm sorry. I probably sound stupid here, but I absolutely don't understand whatsoever how to add game covers to the game boxes on Wiiflow. There's websites for the WiiTDB program, etc, but I just understand what they're on about. I've managed to get Wiiflow working perfectly, so I can't be that bad, so hit me with all you've got!

    Thanks in advance.

    maybe check this out Wiiflow Installation/setup
    there is a section about installing covers.
    wiitdb is mainly the source for your covers. doesn't matter if you install them manually like drop them to \wiiflow\covers on your sd card or you can download them automatically if your wii is hooked up to the internet. check settings -> download covers & titles, download all titles, then all covers
    good luck

    Hey there. Thanks for showing some interest! I've been looking around, and I'm a little confused as to how this works. I now know how to add the covers
    to the Wiiflow boxes, but they're not the correct shape and size. I actually don't understand what WiiTDB does. I don't have an online-enabled Wii, so I downloaded
    the offline package. Nothing anywhere on the internet actually tells me how to use it haha! The Wiiflow setup guide doesn't seem to help me either.

    I can actually add the covers now, but I don't know where or how to obtain them in the first place. Also, I have to clue how to actually name Wii games on Wiiflow.
    They all show up nameless. If you could help me with that, it'd be great. Cheers!

    what do you mean by correct shape and size? which one you tried to download? either you got full covers, streched, panorama like or you got 2d/3d covers, box shape
    you can download a full pack of covers for your region/in your language here WiiTDB - Downloads -> Covers
    get the 3d covers
    then you would drop them to SD:\wiiflow\covers
    above that you can get a recent title list as .txt open it and copy the content to the titles.ini file (be sure you don't overwrite [TITLES] in the 2nd line of the file) in the sd:\apps\wiiflow folder.
    but this shouldn't be that neccesary.
    how do you store your games ? usb hdd with fat32/ntsf or wbfs format?
    which version of wiiflow are you using ? (mabye get this one)

    edit: also in the wiitdb download section there are programms which can handle your gamecollection and download missing covers to your pc.

    i don't know man
    Wii 3D Covers PAL (EN)
    Wii 3D Covers PAL (FR, DE, NL, RU)
    will get you the covers, the 2d/3d covers, right no fullbox covers.
    in your case would be easier to do that with one of those programs.
    get wiigamemanager for example. hook up your usbdrive to the pc. load whats on the drive into the gamemanager, mark all, click download covers.
    (short intro into the program in the fat32 loading guide, link below) also make sure your folder structure is arranged the right way. if the gameID isn't included in the filename of the .wbfs file from your games (in your wbfs folder on the drive) it won't work at all, sounds like that when even the gameIDs won't show up in wiiflow.

    Thanks a lot for all the help. But it's just impossible. The Wii game manager link won't actually let me download it. It just freezes up. There's nowhere
    on the web that provides full box covers. It's just completely impossible! I thought this would be the easy bit, but it turns out softmodding the Wii
    and installing Wiiflow was. Thanks anyway, but I'll just have to leave the game covers blank XD
