    Hi, I am using WBFS Manager on a Mac but none of my games have cover art. My Wii isnt connected to the internet.

    Any idea how I add cover art?

    Thanks

    What do you want? You want that your WBFS-Manager shows your the Covers? Well, maybe it isn't capable of that?

    If you want that your Loader on the Wii shows the Covers, you can download them from wiitdb.com, and place them in the directory the Loader wants them.

    How do I find out where to put the cover art?

    Would it be on the SD card the loader is on or would it be on the HDD where the games are on?

    Thanks for the help, just downloading the file now. [​IMG]

    One question, do I need to name the image to exactly the title of the game to get the loader to recognise it?

    The covers in the various formats (2D, 3D, Disc, Full) are already good for being copied in the SD

    The .png file must have as a name the corresponding GameId ...

    For example, Animal Crossing (PAL version) has RUUP01 as GameId hence its covers must be named RUUP01.png

    Brilliant. It worked perfect and had every cover art except one which I will get for myself.

    Thankyou very much! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Just download the cfg version 50 from here

    Unzip the file and you'll get the official distribution of CFG...

    inside the folder there is another one named "inSDRoot", inside that folder there is another folder named "usb-loader".

    Open "usb-loader" and copy everything but config.txt in the "usb-loader" folder placed on the root of your SD

    You'll get the themes in this way.... they are in the folder "themes"....

    Didnt work for me for some reason...

    My config is set at same as yours I think and the files were properly copied to the route of the SD card.

    # USBLoader config
    # lines starting with # are comments
    # see README-CFG.txt for help on options

    # theme
    theme = BlueMatrix

    # gui
    gui = start
    gui_transition = fade
    gui_style = flow
    gui_rows = 2

    # device
    device = usb

    # covers
    covers_path_2d = sd:/images/2d
    covers_path_3d = sd:/images/3d
    covers_path_disc = sd:/images/disc
    covers_path_full = sd:/images/full

    What a strange, which version of Configurable do you have? please check that you have the latest stable version installed, that is the 50c...

    You can download it from here...

    Get the file cfg50c.dol, rename it as boot.dol and place it into the cfg folder inside the apps folder on the root of the SD (I do not know how you named the cfg folder in your SD)
