    So i use both coverfloader as well as USB loader GX and neither of them are able to d/l images any longer. after a little bit of investigation it looks like the repository on the site has been removed. Any word on if this is being looked into or not, or a way to change what site these loaders use for images?

    Looks like the site that they were originaly on was "www.theotherzone.com"

    but now its "www.wiiboxart.com"

    If you take some time to read other topics in this Backup Loader forum, you will found enough info about this situation, there is even a topic wiiboxart where you can find your answer.

    If dont have to pay to manually download them, but if you want your loader to download them for you then only CoverFloader has the ability to do that if your donate $1 Euro then in Rc7 update 2 you will see a new file called Boxart.pass edit that with notepad or word pad and put your name and pass in, wiiboxart was suppose to handle 1000gig download and that was getting killed by all the loaders, but in fact the site had been limited to 300gig without djtaz knowledge, he is asking for donatitions if you want to mass/bulk download, but its still free for manual downloads
    Hope that clears a few things up

    Really, 1 Euro isn't going to break your bank. It sure beats looking for all the boxart on your own. Save time on looking, more time playing.

    you're right. i was downloading manually when suddenly the notice "This Account Has Been Suspended" appeared. i thought my ip was blocked because i haven't shelled out a stupid euro.

    well, i would donate when i get rev13 working with my loaders.

    if it's down for good, that's too bad. the compilation was starting to be comprehensive.

    surprised me too when they required paid membership to download using loaders, when most of the content was freely contributed by users.

    Rev 567 will code dump. They're going to fix the issue. If you use 567 and experience this (hint: you will) don't bother reporting it.
