    Use Configurable USB Loader instead. Way cleaner and better. [​IMG]

    Just plug your hard drive into your computer use wbfs manager 3.0 to see it and rename the games

    Since you're using USB Gx, just press on the game then on top of the disc, press the name and rename... Simple as that...

    Code:
    # change the inode titles of all discs of all wbfs drives
    wwt settitle -A +=%T --wbfs --test
    
    # change the inode and ISO titlesall of discs of all wbfs drives
    wwt settitle -A +=%T --wbfs --test
    
    # change titles of ISO files in the given directory
    wit settitle source_dir +=%T --test
    
    # remove --test to leave testmode
    # WINDOWS: It is easer to say -E$ and use $T instead of %T
    The names are from WiiTDB.

    There's no need to switch your USB Loader, because it is teh best >D Anyway, click any game then when the "disc channel" pops up (this is where there's a disc spinning) you click on top of the game's title then you can change it from there. Yeah, it's pretty stupid how Wii Sports is named Sports Pack Revolution -.-

    Alternatively, you can open up WBFS manager then load up your hdd, then right-click a game and press rename.

    Hope I helped ^^

    thanks i'll try that disc rename method. i run fat32 hd so wbfs manager probably doesnt apply unfortunately. someone should make a little prog that takes titles.txt and renames games correctly!

    you can edit the names very easily using WBFS Manager on your computer.

    i dont have a wbfs partition so i cant use wbfs manager.

    i tried the renaming on the disc in game, but after i type in the name i have no way of "entering" so i click ok and it reverts to normal.

    You can try Wii Game manager or Wii Backup manager
    Both are WBFS managers with FAT/NTFS support

    Correct. Just enable WiiTDB tiles options and it will display all the correct names.

    It even displays them in the correct formatting without issues.

    Correction: WiiTDB just updates the database that you see when you press the "B" button to see the game info. The game info is basically what you would see if you were to turn over a regular retail game.
