    Is there an app for the Wii that lets you dump Wii games directly to a WBFS partition - that isn't a USB loader? Like, an app that's only for managing games on the WBFS drive, but not to load them (Something like a WBFS Manager, but for the Wii instead of computers)

    I know it's a stupid question, why don't I just use the install option of any USB loader? The thing is, I use NeoGamma to load from USB and as far as I know it doesn't have the option to install/delete games. Also I don't want to use another USB loader, NeoGamma is like an all-in-one solution for DVD and USB games, so I like it more [​IMG]

    So, is there an app like that?

    GX can run DVD's and USB aswel as uLoader and CFG should soon have it, so your best bet is to have at least 1 USB Loader apart from Neogamma its not like it fills your SD card unless you have a crappy 512MB lol

    just get any other usb loader and ignore all the buttons and settings besides "install". easy enough.

    That would be very nice to have. It would be good to be able to install a game to the hard drive from an iso file on a SD card rather than needing to use discs as well. Something like this would probably allow that option eventually I'd imagine.

    You do know that you can use USB Loader GX to run backup discs also, right?

    How would you get a copy of the .ISO?

    How would you remove the update partition?

    How would you get the .ISO on the SD?

    The programs should do that for you ("Install Game" option already does and so does WBFS Manager 3.0 if you want)

    SD card reader

    Im not a No0b and you didnt understand what was being asked(thread wise)

    the whole point in those questions was really, what the point in wantingf a app to manage WBFS on the wii.

    How would you get a copy of the .ISO?

    A USB Loader or WBFS Manager would rip the disk directly to the WBFS partiton!

    How would you remove the update partition?

    As before a USB Loader or WBFS Manager would strip the update partition form the disk making it safer if needed to burn to DVD!

    How would you get the .ISO on the SD?

    A FAT32 file system CANNOT hold a single file over the size of 4GB!, It would take longer to tranfer the .ISO to the SD(in pieces)and then install(not possible) it to the WBFS than it would to rip the disk directly to WBFS partition with a USB Loader(Wii) or WBFS Manager(PC).

    all that said thw whole need for an app what can install an .ISO with out the need for a PC is completely pointless and ppl should stop asking for one or saying it would be great to have one when in reality a USB Loader can do what is all ready asked for and it would be point less in an indervidual app to manager games on thw wii size.

    Well the things about no files bigger than 4GB on SD seals the deal right there. I didn't know that.

    If you knew the answers to the question then why waste peoples time and ask them in the first place. Anyway, good day to you sir.

    i asked the questions because no one in the thread had any logic in what they want by asking for this kind of app, i though the questions would of triggered some sort of spark but no
