    There are some nice animated forwarder channel's I have sept they will work with my flash drive but not my 2 tb USB drive. I would like to update them with up to date forwarders that will work but I don't know how to do that.

    yes FAT32, I think I can use CustomizeMii 3.11 to update the forwarder.dol but were I would find the good forwarder I do not know. The ones used the for forwarder channels in cfg and Wii64 work fine. Thank you for your reply but your request for me to use "proper grammar" that will not be honored.

    u make the forwarder dol's from scratch using customize mii, so u don't need a good forwarder dol or elf as to use as a base


    also, the channels on my X-Flak's top wii channels page should work fine for u (and most other threads with channels, like pepxl's and others)

    yes it works fine from the homebrew channel and yes I am sure its formatted in FAT32 and I am sure configreable usb loader, USB loader GX and wii64's forwarder channels work


    to be specific
    working channels:
    "Nintendo 64 NEU (Wii64 Beta 1 Channel Forwarder Wiisoff) - W64A.wad"
    "USBLoaderCFG_NForwarder-UCXF-Channel.wad"
    "USB Loader GX-UNEO_Forwarder.wad"

    what is differint about these forwarders than outhers that do not work?

    For exsample your "fceugx-(emulators)-FCEU-AudioFix.wad" dose not work

    that's odd, i use those forwarder regularly, and so do a lot of people, and u r the first one to report problems

    its weird that it works on your one drive but not the other

    maybe that hard drive needs a specific type of forwarder... I think the one I use in most of my channels is Comex's (IIRC)

    look at the bottom of my TOP Channels thread, there I have links to just about EVERY other thread/website I could find with channels u can download.

    Check out pepxl's channels, they're awesome, but then again, so are most of the channels in the links I provided there.

    it would seem pepxl's channels do work, its note worthy that wad manager 1.7 also cannot read my drive as I just found out

    yea, i know my forwarders work fine... so its probably some weird drive compatibility issue

    anyways, as long as u got the channels u want from pepxl, then its all good

    cheers
