    Hi,
    I have been using CFG_USBLoader for ages now, and regularly check for updates in it. Of late I have been checking out, downloading and Installing some of the themes for it, and on one of these it has 'Press - for Screenshots'.

    I am aware that pressing '-' on the wiimote brings up either the menu, or the 'remove game' feature, but never an option to view a games' screenshots. I am wondering if there is a third-party mod of the loader that supports viewing screenshots ? (I cant find one anywhere) or is the theme simply 'misleading' ? Thanks for any advice on this matter ..

    NOTE: I do think this would be a great feature though, and do believe WiiTDB includes screenshots, so it shouldn't be too difficult, but I may be totally wrong (I'm not a programmer at all so am simply guessing on its difficulty to incorporate).

    "Set home=screenshot and the first time you push any of the buttons assigned to button_exit, a screenshot will be saved in sd:/usb_loader/ as screenshot1.png or the next available number up to 99 if the file already exists. If you push the exit button after a screenshot has been taken in the game list mode, then the next attempt at taking a screenshot will exit the application."

    If you want the - button to do screenshots, add "button_-=screenshot" to config.txt (for all themes) or theme.txt (for specific themes). The given theme probably does just that. It'll only work in the game list, but using the "home" option instead, like helaciouscrumb suggests, will allow you to use it in menus too.

    Note that this is to take screenshots of Cfg, not to load specific game art as you are assuming.
