    @reggie1978 Try reinstalling your d2x cios (rev 8 or 10 work the best). try making a emunand with modmii and then copy one savegame using wiiflow to your emunand and see if it works. You will have to select the game first and then go in it's settings to copy it's savegame to your emunand. If it works then try a few more. I stopped using emusaves because they never worked right for me. They worked but upon first access I usually had to watch the wii's drive light flash 18 - 20 times and a lot of times my emunand would get corrupted. whenever i did a checkdisk on my PC it would find errors with files related to my emunand. I just use real nand savegames now, it's much faster. And if I need more room I use savegame manager gx to backup some saves to my HDD and delete them from the realnand.

    @Maxternal Great job on the new plugins! guess you got tired of waiting for me to add the partition option to the source menu buttons.

    @AbdallahTerro Thanks for registering wiiflowiki. I wish I could keep up with it.

    Do you mind publishing your coverflow parameters? I'd like to try it here. Thanks in advance.

    I really prefer USB Loader GX over Wii Flow, i don't really like much the Mac design.

    So with vWii compatibility on WiiFlow for WiiU what exactly works and doesn't work? I know GameCube games don't work. Do all the plugins work or just some? what about emu nand and use neek option? Wanting to know this stuff for updating wiiflowiki. Thanks in advance.

    Emulators work,
    Neek still not public so no neek stuff yet, but maybe this will change soon

    Actually, you could still RUN devolution with WiiFlow on a Wii U before with just the loader.bin file from devo source package placed in your /wiiflow folder. (Either way, controlling and verifying are still a problem but they're working on that.) The plugin just lets it look in a different folder, mix it with other emulator games, and have it return back to wiiflow in a GameCube coverflow.
    Actually, I've had the idea for a while. Didn't realize that added benefit until I was already done with them. ;)
    obviously neek isn't an option yet as Abz said ... but I don't know if anyone's tried dumping their vWii NAND and use the normal D2X method to run it yet. It could be something to test out.

    launching WW/VC with vWii-d2x works fine too, just neek and GC don't work yet

    @fledge68 Dude, I'd totally man-kiss you if it wasn't out of line! Turns out I went from d2x v6 straight to v9 and bypassed 8 completely. I installed v8 and that solved the problem. I only have one game that won't load via emusave now, and that's no big whoop. I'll just leave that one on real nand. Thanks a ton bud, you saved my bacon.

    I wonder why some people post these kind of messages in a thread of a loader they don't like..
    Is it frustration, envy...or what?

    Just had to post a thanks to devs.
    Since updating Wiiflow (r840), D2X (v10b53alt) I'm having so much more success running all sorts of NAND/neek2o related stuff such as game saves (no more hanging), wiiware/vc (especially the troublesome titles such as Bonsai Barber, etc.)
    Great work to all involved - awesome effort indeed. :)

    Just a quick question, is there any chance of a ftp server being put into wiiflow? I know this would be no use for getting disc games across etc. But zapping over changes to config files, covers, emu games etc this would be great for. I know wiixplorer has a ftp server and of course there is ftpii, but a one stop shop would be kinda nice.

    I probably shouldn't feed the troll but my Mom always said if you don't have anything good to say don't say anything. :)

    I never associated WiiFlow with a Mac-like interface but kind of see it with the dock at the bottom that auto-hides but frankly a scrolling display of images isn't unique to or designed by Apple.

    You do know that WiiFlow supports themes right? And you can make it look pretty much like anything you want.

    Good morning Fix - the new show game count is nice in r848.

    It does seem to have broken the B+ change sort order though. If I press B and + to cycle through the sort orders nothing changes on screen but if I exit and re-run WiiFlow the correct sort order is displayed again.

    I've just been playing around with the Snes9xGX plugin, and when it comes to exiting the highlight colours are the wrong way around. The normal highlight colour is yellow, but when exiting, if OK is highlighted with yellow, it cancels and goes back to the Snes9xGx menu. I've pointed it out here, since it does say, 'Back to WiiFlow'.

    Also, I've been trying scummvm out, and sadly loom doesn't work with voice audio. It does work though with scummvm 1.5 for the wii.

    I think I may have realized a problem with the devo and dm(l) plugins,though I'm just speculating. The plugin game settings are different than gamecube settings. We won't be able to use nmm, widescreen patch, and we'll have to redo our categories. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    So basically i'm a ''troll'' for expressing my opinion over an homebrew app? mmkay.

    And ''but frankly a scrolling display of images isn't unique to or designed by Apple.'' i didn't said that Wiiflow was developed by Apple.

    USB Loader has got the same thing, but i'm more familiar with USB Loader rather than WiiFlow.
