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

Hi. Thanks for all your hard work.
When trying to download the C64 covers my kaspersky is telling me that the site is not safe, is it a false alert? (The other links were fine tho.)

Hi guys,

The following covers seem to be missing in this post, so please find attached some covers for "Quake II", and its two mission packs ("Ground Zero" and "The Reckoning"). Hope anyone will be interested.

Have a nice day,
Okko
