Hacking How do I add manually-downloaded box art to USB Loader GX?

Solution
You can set any Path you like on SD Card or USB Device in the Settings/Global Settings - (Page 2) Custom Paths

For Example:

3D Covers -> SD or USB1:/covers/3D
2D Covers -> SD or USB1:/covers/2D
Full Covers -> SD or USB1:/covers/Full
Disc Art -> SD or USB1:/covers/Disc

You have to put each art in their own folders.
If I'm not mistaken, there are some folders called: Front2D, DISC, 3D etc.
Once you've got your pictures, you have to rename them with the game's code, and put each file on each folder.

gamefaqs has good box art for some obscure games. I used it for the nes/snes/genesis minis. it's an alternative. it doesn't have 3d or disc art though. I would give @JuanMena and @alexander1970 a like, but that option doesn't seem to exist for the "ask!" section.

Just two more questions

1. Is there a naming scheme to follow that will help USB Loader GX to incorporate the Gamecube/Wii cover, in short, a file name for each image?
2. Do I need to specify another folder within those four folders, like do I have to create a folder within those one or all of each of the four folder?

Sorry for the stupid questions, but I'm itching to not ask them. Thanks!

I have US rom for trauma center: new blood with game id: RK2EEB, but I want to use the cover art for the PAL version with game id: RK2P01. What game code will I name the picture, USA or PAL?

As long as both files has the same name you can choose whichever you want.

AS LONG AS BOTH HAS THE SAAAAAAME NAAAAAAME.

So yes!

Good Evening.😊

Please download/save the PAL Covers and then rename the PAL Covers to the RK2EEB ID to RK2EEB.png
And then copy it to the appropriate Folders 2D / 3D / Full
Note,when you search for Covers again (from within the USBLoader),it maybe will be overwritten again.😉
