    This is great news!! THANK YOU

    Couple of questions though, is this R27 any different from vip patched version like the update path fixed? Also its unclear what exactly the folder structure rearranging means, does this mean it will no longer use USB fat32 first, it just says sd:/?

    Also does this have the freeagent wake drive fix from wiinero a bit ago?

    I suppose it only means instead of having sd:/wiiflow AND sd:/apps/wiiflow now everything is under sd:/apps/wiiflow [​IMG] (same for usb:/)

    The update feature is actually not added and about the path it just means it should be usb:/apps/wiiflow/themes btw. usb:/apps/wiiflow/themes now

    I don't know if you'll read this, but you forgot to change the revision number in menu_about.cpp. By the way, nice change you made!

    You can choose what cIOS should be used in the global settings and game settings so there should be no need for special 222 or 249 versions (i think [​IMG] ).

    I tried the peppa pig fix for r25 and it worked fine but seems to crash a few of the other ones - im wondering if anyone can take a look at this for r27 and see if it can be sorted out so that it will work but wont have an adverse affect on other games ?

    There are a few games i have found to give trouble in wiiflow but i really dont mind given that it looks so well.

    I read something about zip files and wii flow ... mind if i ask how this might work ?

    WiiFlow does have global settings but i just checked R27 and it loads 249 and nowhere in the global settings can you change what IOS to use as global, This would be a great addition though [​IMG]

    Even worst, R27 makes the settings menu a bit mess.

    Does this release add the implementation that fixes a lot of Seagate HD's? WiiflowR27t1_249 fixed it, just curious if this one uses that same method.

    EDIT: I just tried the newest revision, and it didn't fix the problem (lol) this problem has been mentioned time and time again, and the fix has proven to be easy to implement, but for some reason it wasn't implemented.

    The new development seems a little chaotic.

    This isnt less chaotic than USB Loader GX (since r883 (or 893 im not sure) A lot of thing broke and they need to restart all in r897 or something similar, bref, it was very buggy hi hi hi.

    This kind of bug is normal in developpement of homebrew, this is why we are tester for these version [​IMG] and this is why they need a lot of revision.

    Why the data directories was changed in R27?

    In my opinion, it brings no benefits, but only confusion!

    I hope there will be no second GX. My hair stood on end.
