    Dr Clipper, i dunno if this has been asked/covered yet, its a looong thread lol.

    I am wondering if its a possibility to be able to see games from 2 partitions (WBFS, NTFS) all listed at once?
    My WBFS got full right around the time the NTFS/FAT loader version was introduced, so instead of formatting and starting over, i just opted using my NTFS partition for games as well.

    i know its easy enough to switch between partitions within the settings, but itd be cool be able to view all my games from both at one time=)


    also, is there an option in cfg cofigurator to zoom the back cover more than the standard setting?

    No, you can only view the contents of one partition at a time. It would also be quite tricky to make it do so, given the way the data is accessed by Cfg right now.

    And no, you can't zoom the covers in the Configurator. Maybe I'll build something in so that you can double click to open in your favourite image app or something.

    Thanks for the quick answer. It would be a real nice feature to have. [​IMG]

    Anyone manager to get green day rock band (NTSC) working on a JPN region Wii with CFG loader? I tried 2 JPN consoles both just hang after the health screen whereas it works fine on a US set..

    Also tried enabling all options (country flag, video patch etc)...

    I´ve an idea for a plugin in the cfg-loader....
    Erveryone has asked how to run the game XYZ and wich configurations its needed.
    Whats about a server based database, where the IDs of every game are saved, with the best configurations in each region?
    I think it coul be possible, that every user can fill out some questions on the first startup of the cfg-loader. Questions about the region of the Wii and the base IOSs.
    After that in the configuration menu for every game, the user can upload his own configurations or download them if there are saved on a server.
    I think it could be possible and very helpfull, to stop asking, how to get a game running on its own Wii...

    A better way is to have CFG automatically compile a file that contains which base IOS a person used for a particular cIOS. For example the text file would have

    Code:
    cIOS222 = v5, 38
    cIOS249 = v19, 57
    cIOS223 = v4, 38+37[code]
    
    (Or you could serialize the data). Use regex to separate the text then fetch data from the database and do some stuff with said data.
    That's just the cIOS's. There's also the Alt DOL, and that patch thing for Prince of Persia and perhaps newer games.
    
    It'll be a lot of unneeded work.

    Little King's Story worked in 480p without any modification for me, but I'm using an american NTSC version. Yours might be different. This feature of CFG is the best for me, and the main reason I switched over from GX. A few 480i only games resist (off the top of my head, namely Totally Spies, Toshinden (jap), and a couple more I don't recall right now) but the vast majority of 480i games convert right up to 480p with CFG, like all the Harvest Moon games, Kororinpa Marble Mania, Super Swing Golf 1, and many others.

    Keep up the great work, Dr. Clipper (and oggzee)! [​IMG]

    I still run into an error with the cheat codes, with super smash brothers and rune factory when you download the cheats, and says something like, "error too many codes".

    Ozgee, I have a request. OK, I don't have a USB external hard drive. However, Configurable USB Loader has many functions that disk loaders (I use neogamma, which I believe has the highest compatibility) do not, as well as fewer glitches and higher compatibility. Many times, certain games require different versions of CIOS 249 or require that another CIOS be used. (FE: MH3 requiring either Hermes Cios or Waninkoko's CIOSx rev 19 with IOS 37 as the base while HOTD Overkill needs Cios Rev 17 be used) Neither Neogamma nor any other disk loader can select the IOS number to be loaded. When using configurable USB Loader, one needs to have a usb to get past the startup of mounting usb device. So here are my 3 questions.
    -When loading from disk, are the same features maintained
    -Is there a trick I can use to pass the startup without a usb
    -If not, could you include support for disk or SD loading without a USB in your next update
    Please answer, this is killing me. Thanks in advance.

    I don't see the point, unless you need every little bit of your external HDD for games, you can always just format it to fat32 and put both games and apps on it. Or, you could make a wbfs partition for games and a fat partition for apps.

    And then it locks up, and the Wiilight starts blinking. [​IMG]

    FAT32 mount, shouldn't that be 'usb' instead of 'sd', since it should read my usb-stick? [​IMG]

    You don't need a usb hdd, it can run entirely from SD, try this in config.txt:
    device=sdhc
    partition=fat1

    Cfg is not a very good cheat manager and we have no desire to change that when there are already much better apps out there for the job. For memory reasons, a limit has to be put on the number of codes that can be loaded from a .txt cheat file. Some games go past that limit and you will need to use a different code manager in order to create the .gct cheat file. If the cheat file is present, Cfg will load it and properly apply it. Thus, just use a dedicated cheat manager to create the .gct files for those games you can't use with Cfg. An added benefit is that you will also be able to apply the editable codes (marked with E and disabled in Cfg).

    Damn, used a disk instead of a stick, works like a charm! [​IMG]

    So why the hell did my stick work with a wbfs-partition and not with a fat32-partition!?
    Oh well, it's working great now!

    Great software guys!! [​IMG]

    Hi all, How are you?

    "- install game on NTFS is disabled at the moment because of libntfs write instabilities (install on FAT works fine)"

    Does usb loader contain libntfs? Or is this library belongs to "ios 222" or "cios 249"?

    I ask that because I have an external HD, which is formated in NTFS, and cannot install any (backup) games!, however, I can load (backup) games.

    Thanks.
    Paul

    Yes, the loader contains libntfs and yes installation is disabled.

    I don't know what your question is exactly, it seems that you answered it yourself already. Yes, the Loader "contains" Libntfs (though you can't say it like that, it doesn't contain the whole lib, just some code), otherwise it wouldn't be able to read from an NTFS-Partition, and display the game. The cIOS doesn't do much, as far as I know (Doesn't the DIP needs to know where to start to read the image, or something like that? And isn't that handled by the FRAG-List? I dunno...). And you can't rip games from the Drive to the NTFS-Partition because Libntfs is to buggy with writing (corrupts the whole partition/game), and that's why it is disabled. And it probably will stay like that until the devs of Libntfs fixed this. So the problem is the Lib, not the loader or the cIOS.

    This should cover it. Oh, and please use the Search, I've answered this several times already.
