    Does anyone know how to enable the text labels that show when you flicker through the games.. it doesnt seem to be appearing on mine and when i install a new game with no cover it becomes a guessing game as to what game is selected (apart from the music)

    anyone know how to enable this??

    Depending on the theme you have selected depends on if the titles show up or not. some themes dont have titles to show in the theme ini file.

    Ive had this quesiton for a long time....I think the OP is using the Carbonik theme as am I. Ive looked around the INI for hours...could not find a way to enable the titles to display. Would love it if someone could point me in the right direction....

    If you're on FAT/NTFS you can either download WiiTDB which will automatically create titles.ini or you can create your own titles.ini in root:/wiiflow/settings.

    To download WiiTBD, you go to the Wiiflow menu and then the downloaded covers and titles menu.

    You can also do both. First download WiiTDB and then you can create a "custom_titles.ini" for custom title names. Place that in root:/wiiflow/settings also

    Here's a link on the WiiFloWiki for the custom_titles.ini...

    Hope this helps.

    I've already answered that question many times about my Carbonik theme.
    I use an empty font for the title , i.e the font doesn't contain any character.

    If you want to get the titles in Carbonik , open the .ini and look for this part (near the end) :

    [_COVERFLOW]
    font=emptyfont.ttf
    font_color=#61a5c2FF
    font_line_height=32
    font_size=32
    loading_cover_box=loading.png
    loading_cover_flat=flatloading.png
    missing_cover_box=nopic.png
    missing_cover_flat=flatnopic.png
    number_of_modes=3
    sound_cancel=
    sound_flip=flip.wav
    sound_hover=
    sound_select=click.wav

    replace "font=emptyfont.ttf" with "font=NEUROPOL.ttf"

    You may then need to adjust the title position and size in the settings (adjust coverflow).

    Wow thank you so much. I never ask questions that I can't find the answer to. I have searched for hours on how to do this to no avail. Now, with your help and 10 mins. of tweaking, it works great. Again, thank you.
