    hi folks,

    first i wanna say hello to u all. this site helped me setting up my wii in the correct way. everything is working good except 1 thing.

    The download of the Community Banners for Gamecube games is not working anymore. If u press 1 at the USB loader gx mainscreen u can choose what covers should be downloaded. everything is downloading except the community banners. its strange because in the past i had no problems downloading them.

    everytime i try downloading community banners it say┬┤s " files are not found on Server"

    what i recognised is, that the 3d, 2d cover boxes etc. are downloaded from gametdb. The community banners are downloaded from copy.com. Is it possible that the community banners are gone from copy.com ?

    it would be very nice if someone could proof this cuz i cant get any info about gamecube custom banners/community banners on the internet.

    thx in advance (sorry for my bad english :) )

    Copy.com doesn't seem to support HTTP requests anymore. None of the content hosted there for WiiFlow Mod seems to download anymore either.

    If someone had a private server, it could be hosted there instead of using a hosting service which often change their policy.
    The banner's URL already changed 3 times in a year...
    2 dropbox and 1 copy

    I'm wondering how much bandwidth per month it would require to host them.

    ABZ said the banners would be hosted on GameTDB. https://gbatemp.net/threads/custom-...nu-backup-loaders.325003/page-55#post-5463319

    good to know :)
    Let me know the direct URLs to download them when it's available and I'll update the sources.
