So I recently installed Homebrew on my Wii, and my friend recommended me to use Nintendont to play Gamecube games through iso downloads.

I did what the instructions told me (Make a "games" folder on the root of the SD, name the iso "game.iso") and it still won't show up on the menu, just the option for the disc slot? Does anyone know what I can do to fix this issue?

Game on SD Card

The game path expected by Nintendont is :
SD:/games/whatever you want/game.iso
SD:/games/whatever you want/disc2.iso

The non-bold part need to be written exactly like you see it above (the filename is not the game's title, but the 4 letters "g+a+m+e")
If a game has two discs, the second ISO needs to be placed in the same folder than the first disc's ISO, and named to "disc2.iso".
Only the bold part "whatever you want" need to change.

For better compatibility with other loaders, you can put Game's Title and GameID in that part, like this :
SD or USB:/games/Zelda Wind Waker [GZLP01]/game.iso
SD or USB:/games/Tales of Symphonia [GQSEAF]/game.iso
SD or USB:/games/Tales of Symphonia [GQSEAF]/disc2.iso

For users who still don't understand that "game" doesn't refer to the game's title but to the single word "game":
/games/Zelda Wind Waker [GZLP01]/Zelda.iso <--- WRONG :hateit:
/games/Zelda Wind Waker [GZLP01]/game.iso <--- Correct
/games/Tales of Symphonia [GQSEAF]/disc2.iso <--- Correct

If you don't know the GameID, you don't need to use it.
/games/zelda/game.iso is working too.

I had the same problem, just rename the iso with the name "game" only without ".iso"
Hope this can help you.
