    Cover Collections - part 2
    I'm uploading here all the missing covers sets for Wiiflow. It will take some time to restore everything, please be patient.
    You can contribute with any missing, fixed or alernate artworks. Post it here (use spoiler tags if you post single images) and I will eventually update the packs.

    Please remember that you'll have to rename the png files following this format:
    Title.ext.png
    Title= Name of the file used to launch the game.
    ext=Extension of the file used to launch the game.
    If it's a NES game, the '.ext' part will be '.nes', if the game is in zip format it will be '.zip'. It can even be a dummy file, like for hode (Heart of Darkness.game).
    png= Image format of the cover. Don't change it.

    Example 1 - Cover for a Sega Megadrive, unzipped game:
    Alisia Dragoon.md.png
    Example 2 - Cover for a Game & Watch, zipped game:
    Lifeboat.zip.png

    Utilities:
    Create Cache (Wii Homebrew)
    WFC Convertor (PC Command Line Tool)

    Thanks @Tetsuo Shima for this. I still have the NES Shrunken Spine backed up on HDD. I would like to share if interested, but do not have a Mediafire or Mega account of the sorts. At 950 mb, I imagine it is much too large to upload here. If there is a different possible route i could upload it directly to you, that would be ideal.

    @biggzsizzle please be more specific. What issue are you having, exactly? Which covers are affected?
    Can you post a screenshot?

    I just wanna see the covers correspond to the correct rom:cry::cry::cry:

    That way I can weed out or rename files that aren't showing a cover at all

    @biggzsizzle I see you're using my theme, but I notice from your screenshots that you are missing backgrounds, and your settings menu is from a very old Rhapsodii Shima version. What version are you using? Did you follow the install instructions?

    When the covers are all showing like this, it means that the magic numbers used in plugin .ini's and source menu .ini's are not matching with the ones found in platform.ini.
    If the magic numbers for the plugins aren't found in platform.ini, wiiflow will not know which coverflow to display, thus using a standard one.
    Never, ever edit platform.ini. It will mess up the database, too, among other things. There's really no reason to edit it.
    If you use my theme, the source menu ini files are coming with all the right magic numbers already in.
    If you changed them, just reinstall the theme.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Also, in the plugin .ini files, check if the coverfolder is correct.
    From screenshots like this:
    [​IMG]
    it's clearly visible that you're not using the shrunken spine!
    Download the correct sets for Nintendo covers.

    Part of the problem,... "SNES Vert Shrunken Spine (753).rar" smh

    I'll check the rest too and report back, Thank u!!

    So for every plugin.ini I have
    Code:
    coverFolder={plugin-name}/covers
    Where "coverFolder=fceugx/covers" translates to "usb1:/wiiflow/boxcovers/fceugx/covers" .. Correct?

    Ok then, so to reference the correct magic number I can take from the ini's you provided in source_menu folder, Correct?

    Added cover for Grim Fandango (residual VM). This will match proportions of a pc game box.
    Added some alt covers: Doom, Hexen 2 and Grim Fandango (localized versions).

    Hey

    My SNES covers dont display correctly. Some are vertical and some are horizontal using 5.4.1

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Anyone have vertical spine for SNES?

    Thanks

    @gonefishing1975 I've uploaded only the horizontal covers. I was thinking it's the most used.
    Were you using the vertical SNES covers?
    I could upload it in the future
