Hi @mastershoes
how are you?

Thank you so much for the time you put into the covers. I appreciate it very much. And yet I have one request. Would it take much effort for you to add the cover of Operation Stealth to the ScummVM collection? That's the only one I'm missing at the moment.

Update 09-14-21:

Added Update Pack #2 for the Arcade set. It has 117 new covers, and 9 new alts. Getting pretty desperate for art on some of these more obscure games, so there's a lot of covers that are fanart from launchbox, but it's better than nothing. Note that all of these covers are for games that are currently tested working.

Have fun! :)

Hi there. I make my own covers for arcade games but they are not covers as such, they are images of arcade cabinets and I also have trouble finding good images of some rare arcades. These images of the arcade machines are very impressive and give a more real look to the wiiflow in your arcade section. greetings and great work friend

Hi @mastershoes,

since I'm missing some covers in your collection I started to download them from screenscapper.fr by myself. The box covers are huge in file size compared to yours. May I ask how do you reduce the file size from 2M down to 200k?

Hi @Tetsuo Shima

may I ask you for the template for ZX Spectrum tape covers. I would like to use it with the covers available from "World Of Spectrum" to complete my collection with covers.

how do you hide multiple discs from appearing on screen with covers? i only want the first disc to appear when i'm browsing the games. i'm using wiiflow lite.
It is easy. it can be done in any version of wiiflow including lite. go to wiiflow / settintgs on the pc and open the categories_lite.ini file with wordpad
delete the content in the [general] line and replace it with

[GENERAL]
cat1 = Action
cat10 = Sports
cat11 = Strategy
cat12 = Traditional
cat13 = Theme
cat14 = ESRB: Early Childhood
cat15 = ESRB: Everyone
cat16 = ESRB: Everyone 10+
cat17 = ESRB: Teen
cat18 = ESRB: Mature
cat19 = ESRB: Adults Only
cat2 = Adventure
cat20 = Hidden
cat21 = 2 Players
cat22 = 4 Players
cat23 = Cooperative
cat3 = Fighting
cat4 = General
cat5 = Health
cat6 = Music
cat7 = Racing
cat8 = Role Playing
cat9 = Simulation
hidden_categories = 4
numcategories = 24
required_categories =
selected_categories =


now save the file with the same name (I recommend backing up the unmodified file in case you have to revert to the original settings)

now on your wii open wiiflow between where the games you want to hide are and click on the categories icon for systems (a kind of square basket) located at the bottom right of the screen. go to the page that says hidden in a box and click on its box until it is crossed out with a red x. this allows that the roms and isos that we do not want are not seen

Now pre-select the game you want to hide and in the menu on the right choose the categories icon for games (the icon is the same as the one you saw previously in systems categories)
now go to the hidden option and tick it green
go back and see that the game has disappeared

If you have confused the game to hide, go to the system categories icon and remove the red cross and now you will see the game that I have eliminated. now go to the preselection of that game and click on the game category icon and uncheck the hidden box

You can do more things but not to mess up but I only answer your question exactly.

a greeting

    very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes so i think i made the right choice

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    there was also a sony with worse local dimming and the glow was really apparent

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is non linear anyway. 100 nits is about 50% of the peak output of a 10,000 nit display.

  • Julie_Pilgrim @ Julie_Pilgrim:
    "very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes" not in the games i play
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    that's not important

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    i can't tell the difference
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    but i can certainly tell the difference with black crush if i'm watching a scifi movie and i can't see wtf is going on
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's have a 3D look

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
