    Yes. Just push the plus button from the game list or gui to install a game.

    That assumes you haven't gone and set "disable_install=1" or "simple=1" in config.txt. If you have, then you will need to enter the unlock password first (hold 1 for 10 seconds then enter the password, for which the default is "BUDAH12").

    Can that handle .wbfs files and convert from iso? If not it's not really an alternative for wbfs_file.

    I noticed the new feature of fat32 game partition support ... does that mean we might see NTFS game partition support soon??? [​IMG]

    The NTFS library isn't good enough yet
    So that might take a while

    Not likely, at least not from me. While it is certainly possible, I don't have much time and don't plan on working on that.

    Actually in the following days i don't plan any new major features, only minor bugfixes.
    Known problems to me at the moment:
    - wbfs on a raw device without a partition table is not recognized by v46 (reported by nomowo)
    - wbfs on a partition with type extended is not recognized by v46 (reported by tolomeo post#4787)
    (This is really an invalid setup to have, but old versions allowed you to format an extended partition. The correct thing to do would be to format the logical partition inside the extended partition)
    - wbfs_file option -1 for 1:1 copy mode is broken (reported by Skizzo)
    (but at the moment there are no real uses for this mode, so it's a low priority for me)

    Yes that is one of the reasons too.

    Even libfat turned out to be more problematic than i expected, so i had to make some fixes to it. The fixes are now included in the released version of libfat 1.0.6 which I strongly recommend all other loaders developers to use to avoid further file and filesystem corruptions. I suspect I might have also fixed with it the reason for so many corrupted cover images that were crashing all the loaders. The problem would show for writes that are fat cluster size aligned.

    Do you think that the WBFS_File will get a Minor Change, that "remake" the wbfs iso files is recommended? (Changing Splitsize / Sectorsize / Big Bugfix?)
    (Converting my entire Wii-Collection takes hours...)

    No, i don't foresee any change regarding the .wbfs file format or creation.
    Only changes i might do is fix the -1 1:1 copy option, but that will have no impact on the normal (scrubbed) .wbfs file creation. And maybe and additional command or parameter that will let you specify the target directory or filename.

    Just upgraded from v37 to v46. Great progress, oggzee and team! I noticed a splash screen that wasn't there before. Is there a way to disable it? Thanks!

    You can leave your files on WBFS if you like. FAT32 loading is just an option, not a requirement.

    For upgrading, you can either do it online or manually. Both methods are described on my tutorial page in the updating section.

    Gambia, The
    Firtst of all, thanks for this great piece of Software!!!

    And now a Feature Request:

    Also you told to do only smal changes/fixes to the software, I've got a littlle wish [​IMG]

    It would be fine to have more than one Favorite Selection (perhaps one for every family member).
    - every group with a different overlay icon (favorite1-5.png)
    - in the Game Options it should be possible to ad a game to none, one or more fav groups
    - with the "2" Button it is possible to toggle through the groups 1-x and all
    - perhaps it is possible to set the group count, maybe 1-10 in the ini file and give every group a name, visible in the gui

    Maybe not a little wish, but a semi little...
    With great hdds and many games it would be fine to set the favorites for every family menmber seperately.


    StompSC

    If this is already discussed in this thread, I must concede that I didn't read the whole 325 pages, only the first one and the last 15.... Sorry for that.
