    Yes there is an option to change how your games are listed/sorted, within UsbLoader_CFG. Simply press '-' on your wiimote, as if you were gonna uninstall a game. You'll see a new menu appear, the options there are self-explanatory.

    Good Luck .. :>

    The only option they give me is to remove it.

    Hmm...I can think of two reasons why that may happen:

    1. it is changed in a later version. The current latest version of CFG is v56 (or v57 beta2, to be exact). You may want to update your CFG version. [​IMG]
    2. you have remapped the function of the "-" key. It should be mapped to "main_menu" (check this page for all the info). The "-"-key is just the default button for that.

    Thanks! Turns out I just needed to update. It slightly annoys me that they don't count "the". Aka, "The Conduit" comes before "Madworld". But its cool.

    By default, Cfg uses title sort. This means that all articles ('A', 'An' and 'The') are ignored during the sort. If you want a purely alphabetical sort, add:

    Code:
    sort_ignore = 0
    to config.txt. You can also change the list of words that are ignored by using a comma separated set of words instead of the 0. For example, the default of that option is: sort_ignore = A, An, The

    You can also specifically sort your games in order using the pref_game option. The pref_game option allows you to list some games that will always appear at the top of the list. It's format is a comma separated list of 4-character IDs for the games in the order you want them to appear. This doesn't seem to be what you want, though.

    Finally, the 'sort' option allows you to use entirely different sort patterns, like number of players, last time played, most often played, release date, etc.
