    I noticed that USB Loader Cfg doesn't have (IMO) a decent channel, so i decided to make one.
    I used a custom Channel ID not to have any conflict with official channels.

    This file forwards to SD\apps\usbloader_cfg
    Advantages:
    1. It looks great and has animations too
    2. You can use this channel to play your games and use the return to channel option by adding this line in SD\apps\usbloader_cfg\config.txt
    return_to_channel = WLB9
    3. You can still have a folder called SD\apps\usbloader with no return to channel option by adding this line in SD\apps\usbloader\config.txt
    return_to_channel = 0
    4. Now create game channels using CRAP or GSC using USBLoader_CFG no intro mode and you will return to SM after you quit those games


    ID : WLB9

    You got the directory for config.txt wrong, and this line is pointless:
    Edit: I suggest you stop trying to give tips (since most of them are wrong) and just try to learn.

    Edit 2: You didn't even get the directory for Cfg USB Loader correct, so your forwarder probably doesn't work for anybody who has the default setup.

    FYI having the config file in apps\usbloader or usbloader_cfg sub directories will override the global options in sd\usb-loader\config.txt
    I think you misunderstood the benefits mentioned above.
    This is something I've been using for very long time and is working 100%

    Play games made with crap and return to SM using (apps\usbloader\boot.dol)
    Play games using the forwarder channel using (apps\usbloader_cfg\boot.dol) and return to USBL_CFG

    There is no point in having two config files, and the default location is SD:\usb-loader\config.txt (or USB). You are just screwing with the default location for everything.

    Using "return_to_channel = 0" will just throw an error and it will do what it does by default, which is return to the System Menu. Just leave the line out.

    Your forwarder doesn't have any advantages, and your "tips" aren't tips at all.

    Pretty redundent really, plenty of forwarders out there, you could of at least removed the "Nintendo" and "Wii".

    Just seems like your creating threads for the sake of it (with pretty useless things) to try and make some sort of name for your self tbh....

    Trying to hard to fit in as it were.......

    Well this solves an issue with Crap/GSC where when you have only one config.txt you'll return to USBL-CFG when you exit the Crap/GSC game (and you don't want that)
    I found this work around useful and I know many poeple using Crap/GSC will like it too.

    regarding "return_to_channel = 0" it's not making any errors and yes you can delete this line if you want.

    @pepxl you can notice that the channel no reference to me whatsoever because I'm not interested in making a name.
    It's just a channel I spent a lot of time making. If you don't like it don't use it.

    Why wouldn't you want it to? And if you didn't, just use "auto".

    Error was the wrong word, but I mean it will return the same thing as if you didn't set it.

    i think your getting mixed up,crap just makes a channel for the game you want to load, the channel still uses the usb loader that you choose to start the game with. an from playing around with crap for awhile trying to get it to load neek/ newer wiiflow. you really only need to change or add a certian line to the code to make it return to the loader your using.( can't remember it's been awhile. but use showmii wads to deconstruct the wad, find the line, the remake it as a wad.)

    @shortz1994 I know what crap/gsc do and the comments they use don't always work. This is why I wrote this.
    & as I mentioned in post 1 / point 4 the option for loader used here is usb loader cfg (no intro)

    I think you misunderstood, you making mass amounts of threads in a short amount of time with apparent useful creations which aren't to the many users here, which are also mixed and match from other projects/threads. You making these thread to grab attention is what i meant by "trying to make a name"(probably the wrong choice of words), not the channel which is also a mash from other available images and game banner that you through together that can be made if a few minutes.

    So what exactly took you the most time to make, the thread or the channel...

    Well, guys... If you don't like something, avoid the thread and don't post in it. If a thread doesn't get any post, it quickly gets forgotten (that should be the golden rule - good content gets posts, bad doesn't). If you keep replying to it, it'll bump again at the top.

    There is nothing dangerous in the content released by the OP (just "tips" that might not work), so it doesn't warrant a lock/trash.
