    So when I launch a game through WiiFlow, it opens Nintendont's main menu, like I just launched the homebrew app; How do I set it to launch the game that I picked directly?

    To clarify, when I pick a Gamecube game through WiiFlow, instead of it launching, I'm taken to the Nintendont screen:

    I replaced my boot.dol in apps/nintendont, but when I select a Gamecube title through WiiFlow, it still boots into the default Nintendont menu (i.e. doesn't start the game). Do I place the boot.dol somewhere else?

    get the bins folder that goes with that boot dol you have. and put it and its contents in apps/wiiflow

    go here - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/101209384/MasterPiece/Wiiflow_Pack.html

    choose the top link ' Download Link MasterMod Pack v4.2.3' to download wiiflow mastermod pack.
    backup your wiiflow.ini.
    then open the 7z file you downloaded and open the apps folder.
    inside you will find a wiiflow folder. it contains everything you will need. extract it and put it in your apps folder replacing the one you already have.
    and you're done.

    side note: anyone reading this, in case you didn't know there is a wiiflowiki - https://sites.google.com/site/wiiflowiki4/. it tells you NOT to use the last builds of wiiflow for Nintendont. they are not compatible!
    use wiiflow mastermod by Abdallahterro or Wiiflow lite.

    yeah, you have 2 options:
    either use wiiflow mastermod and nintendont mastermod found in the pack (everything should work fine, however they are not up to date (yet!))
    or download wiiflow/nintendont mastermods using the standalone links in my sig and extract them replacing the ones in the pack (dols and bins are included in those standalones too) so that you get a working/up to date setup
    As fledge said, original wiiflow was not updated since a long time to support nintendont autoboot, so if you want to use it you will need a really old version of nintendont for the autoboot to work

    Anyone else have an alternate download link please for wiiflow_1076_mod_wiiuwide.7z, the server is down on the website and fledge68's sig link is also down, I think it's the same link maybe.

    Kind of a necro bump, but when I launch my game, the loading screen shows, and when loading finishes, the wii just turns itself off.... Any idea how to fix it?

    method to force GC games to autoboot directly in nintendont when opened via wiiflow? currently when i launch a GC game it brings up the default nintendont screen where i have hit a for usb or sd and then the list of GC games pulls up. I dont see any options in the wiiflow gui for autoboot ?

    I'm using WiiFlow Master mod (4.2.3-r1054)
    nintendont v3.324
    on wii u--virutal wii
    usb external hard drive fat 32, 32kb cluster

    yes, i got it to work, i had an outdated version of nintendont. Now im trying to get the mame emulator to work from within wiiflow. what is the correct syntax in the .ini file to tell it to read the roms in the mame folder in my fat32 usb hard drive?

    which ini?
    wiiflow has an ini in your app folder
    mame has a plugin ini in wiiflow/plugins folder
    sd/usb is something you can select in wiiflow if you select settings for the selected plugin so no need to worry about device here, you only need to make sure you have the right rom path in mame ini

    Ok, then common the right Parth, but when I select USB, it says no games found. Where should I be placing the name roms in the USB drive? In the root?
