Translators:

The sample CDBs have been uploaded. The new file for the GUI Menu Wizard is menuwiz.cdb. There's also a ton of changes in configurator.cdb.

Not everything in the Menu Wizard is translatable at the moment, but more will be added soon. Specifically, the file info and text on the grouped buttons is currently untranslatable. However, now that I think about it, you might be able to add tooltips to some of those items. I'll list the names below as the names will change for future versions of the Configurator.

I'll also just say that I haven't tested any of this, so please let me know if there are any problems, missing items and so on.

#file section:
if_favorites |
if_sort |
if_filter |
if_view |
if_style |
if_quit |
if_settings |
if_main |
if_radio |
if_checkbox |
if_button |
if_page |
if_window |
# gui_button section

TO_gui_button_quit |
TO_gui_button_style |

# gui_text_color section

I don't know if you are working on a new version of Configurator or not (I'm sure you are), but I have a small feature request. I hack a couple of Wiis for some people and so as to save bandwidth on the wiitdb/gametdb site, what I'll do is just take my covers folder and copy it between the various USB HDDs that go with each Wii. Well you combine this fact with the fact that sometimes, old games get taking off different drives and new ones get added on, etc. Well I tend to end up with covers I don't need. So would it be possible to add an option that will delete all covers for any games that are not on the games list?

# Note: This file was generated by Cfg Loader Configurator v69
# Global Settings:

[profile=default]

# Hidden Games: 0

# Game Options: 1
game:R5VX41 = language:console; video:game; video_patch:0; vidtv:0; country_patch:0; fix_002:0; ios:222-mload; block_ios_reload:auto; alt_dol:0; ocarina:0; hooktype:nohooks; write_playlog:0; clear_patches:0;
#END

Is there a key to explain what all the abbreviations mean or a version with a live preview? The balloon texts are not really self-explanatory. Even just a text list of all the commands and their functions would be helpful. For example, I don't understand the difference between "background", "background_gui" and "w_background_base". By hovering over each option, I get balloon tips which say "selects a background", "select a stretchable background" and "select a cropped background" so it's gonna take a lot of trial and error to by swapping out my SD card, editing some changes and then re-booting the Wii to see which changes have taken effect.
