    There's already a default font.ttf embeded inside the boot.dol, so even the beta already have it.
    But it's a little font.ttf. It doesn't have all languages (no Chinese, Japanese, Hellas(Greek), etc.), if you need to display these language's font then you probably already disabled the system font to use a more complete font.ttf
    Maybe I'll add the full font to the loader's googlecode page, you can find a complete one here if you want:

    USBLoaderGX channel view FTW! Great loader, easy to use, lots of options and stuff. It just needs neek2o support to make it perfect! I dont really like Wiiflows interface. I prefer the simpler Wii-like presentation!

    USBLoaderGX r1218 (release soon!) will add this support to the list :
    - Runs via IOS 58 and AHBPROT : Yes
    - Gamecube DM / DML / Devolution / Nintendont : All

    Thanks to IOS58 and AHB access, you can launch GameCube games and real NAND channels without cIOS (useful on vWii if you don't want to install cIOS).
    You will have to add Nintendont to the title. only zelda is working in alpha0.1, but in USBLoaderGX you can already select the other games and settings so it's ready for future releases.
    You can add Nintendont to Wiiflow too.

    Edit:
    r1218 is available :

    I couldn't vote as I use 3 of the 4 lol

    Although visually and for ease of use I do like Wiiflow the best, I use the other 2 for different reasons. The main one being that one or two of my games don't show up in Wiiflow but do show up in the other loaders (really odd issue that I finally gave up on and just said "fuck it I will multiple loaders!")

    If I did vote I would vote for Wiiflow :)

    (BTW one of the games is Excite Truck one of my all time favorite Wii games, I have the disk but playing from hard drive is so much better.)

    Edit: Also some of my games that show up in Wiiflow do not show up in the other loaders... So weird!

    for Wiiflow deleting the \Wiiflow\Cache folder should fix your issue,
    you might have games on different devices and partitions

    I know WiiFlow still doesn't really have a screensaver but it DOES at least now darken the screen after inactivity (kinda like the in-game burn-in reduction option) so maybe that could be added, too ;)

    not the correct thread, but:
    I'm trying to fix the banner URL redirection in USBGX.
    as dropbox used a "temporary redirection", I thought it would be best to keep the initial URL and add support to 302 error and use the given url.
    But it still says 404 not found.

    Did you delete all ID6 banners?
    only ID3 are left on your dropbox account?

    From day one only ID3 banners are available. GX used to rename to ID6 accordingly. there's only a handful of id6 banners for triforce and mario mods games
    this url is working for me, last time I checked: http://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/101209384/GameID3

    Thanks, I forgot you had only ID3 :P

    I didn't manage to get the URL redirection working in USBGX so I'll probably just update the URL in the settings.

    I tried other loaders but all looks awful, yes I also tried with other skins XD

    the chart is or really outdated about usbloader gx or i remember it different. ever since dios mios support, there is fan art possible, custom banners for all games, homebrew, so there is ah, some sort of emulator plugin option. if needed, full emulator options could be done (doesn't take that long just extension recognition and starting through the right installed emulator). ios automaticely + manual selection, i don't know about nand selection if you mean sneek, it can handle it. boot animations fully work. ww and vc compatiblity are your systems fault, if it works on system channel it'll work in usb loader for what i've tested so far.
