    1) Cfg supports theme downloading
    2) Cfg does every kind of coverflow that Wiiflow does AFAIK. It also allows you to grab and rotate the full box however you want, including zoom.
    3) Cfg has guides: http://gwht.wikidot....gurable-options
    4) Cfg takes between 3 and 5 seconds to boot.
    5) Cfg can hide titles.
    6) I don't think that Wiiflow supports Wanin cIOS anymore, but I'm not positive.

    Thanks I'll update that too next time
    Loading time was taken on my Wii with 300 games (it's different for different users but at least it gives a relative idea)

    You should remove the whole boot time thing then. If it's all based on how many games you own (or in your case, pirate), then there is no standard.

    Nice feature, abz.
    What's the page view in the first line?
    Also, GX returns homebrew to channel for me but I don't know if it is because of the modified ppcboot.elf that I use. I'll check and let you know.

    Cfg also supports Logo+Verbose. You also still haven't added some of the stuff from my last post.

    Also, shouldn't Cfg have the "Configuration" cell in green, since it is more customizable than any other loader (perhaps unnecessarily so, lol)?

    The fact that you that have to do most of the configuration on a PC, makes it not green, as far as I'm concerned. That used to bug me when I was using CFG. It would be fine if the themes had to be configured offline but more basic stuff should be right there on the interface.

    ABZ: USB Loader GX does support hiding games. It's a relatively new feature.
    Also, it allows you to show games from different sources in the same list, e.g., disc games with GC and WiiWare games, etc. You mix and match however you want. It's a really cool feature and I don't think the others do that.

    You didn't change the Design cell. It's got the same options as Wiiflow.

    Also, postLoader doesn't support loading Wii games. All it does is forward arguments to whatever USB loader you have.

    @themanuel: Actually all basic options have been added in Cfg now, but I do see your point.

    CFG can show both Wii and GC games at the same time too
    will add that to the table next time too :)

    [hr]Posts merged

    Wiiflow has Adjust coverflow option that's why it got the green ;)

    True, but can you choose not to show one or the other? I don't remember.


    I see, I haven't used it in months, so I'm out of the loop on the recent additions by fix94 and others. I should probably stick to commenting on GX, which is what I use.

    Yes, you can. Just go to filters and choose if you want to filter out Wii/GC games.
