I used a USB loader to rip all of my disks to a harddrive, then used Wi Back Manager to extract them into .wbfs files on my PC.

Problem is, they all ended up with filenames like ROH123.wbfs or whatever. Any attempts to Google for a renaming tool only brought me tools that would rename the internal game name within the ISO itself.

I don't want to do that, I just want to rename the actual filenames on what the games actually are, not change their internal game title.

Are there any tools that do this?

Actually WiiBackupManager does this already. :)
Open up settings, select the Titles tab and enable "Use GameTDB titles.txt", "Use GameTDB titles for file and folder names", "Auto rename drive transfers", "Auto rename WBFS file transfers"... Leave the rest unenabled. Don't forget to update your titles.txt and click on the "Download titles.txt" button before transferring your files.
After that you can load all your games, select them all, click on "Transfer" and select "WBFS File...". This will just copy all your games as WBFS files with the correct names.

Thanks. Is the updating of the titles a built-in feature or so I have to manually get that file?

Also, is there any way I can rename the files that I already transferred to my PC without redoing the transfer from the WBFS drive again?

As far as I know there is no Auto-updating the titles.txt. I always do it manually.
For the renaming, click in WiiBackupManager on "Drive 1" tab, select "Custom folder.." for your source of WBFS files. It will load in all your games. After that click on "Tools" at the very right side where you selected "Custom folder..", not the "Tools" menu above. A pulldown menu will show up. Select "Game titles" and "Rename All". This will rename all your WBFS files to the approperiate names. ;)

    USB is fine, but shouldn't it be replaced with bulky, hard to use cables and all sorts of proprietary male-female connector port shapes?

    40Gbps is just going to result in even more more lazy developers writing sub-optimal, lazy code.

    How? That transfer speed is insane

    That's like saying fast transfers is going to be the downfall of gaming

  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Then when devs that actually do take their time makes people cry over them taking their time and having to wait even longer

  • Shape @ Shape:
    Very astute observations, but you failed to take into account people like me who prefer devs to take their time despite longer waits and really, really dislike the suboptimal approaches many studios are taking with game development in this day and age. Catering to the customers with impatient impulses for instant-gratification is a super-profitable business strategy in the short term, sure, but it is an untenable business strategy in the longer term simply because you cannot guarantee you can produce a quality game in that timespan repeatedly. Therefore, you will have to abuse your workforce or partake in other inethical practices in order to compete in the marketplace and remain profitable.

    Not really a fail the general public just doesn't know how to wait I don't see what faster transfer speeds have to do with that

  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    That's why GTA games are so great because they have that 5-10 year wait and most new sports games are updated roasters they can't really do much improvement with them because not much their is to improve but on the other hand you get a new cod game every year and it makes millions per year so why stop the cash flow if people are dumb enough to buy every new game peryear
