    yeah, especially if that plugin limit can be increased to 100 and also the use of "|" in argument :)

    Is there any way to install postLoader 4 on an emulated NAND without using priiloader?
    Priiloader seems to cause issues on my Wii.

    You should check /ploader/plugins.conf if the path for roms are the right one and the plugin is activated.

    Yes, this can be added. Just wait september

    You can install postloader without priiloader. But if you want to start postloader automatically you need neek2obooter.app. Check postloader's readmii.txt

    @ stfour
    I've checked.

    Do you mean this ?
    045=1|0|FB Alpha|retroarch-wii/fb_alpha.dol|/fba_alpha/roms|zip|fba.png|{device}:{path}/;{name}
    033=1|1|WiiMednafen PCE|wiimednafen-mod3.dol|/wiimednafen/roms/PCE|pce,zip|Turbo_Grafx.png|{device}:{path}/;{name};{loader}
    and yes the rom paths are right

    P.S
    the plugins are in wiiflow\plugins
    is postloader compatible with all plugins found here http://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/101209384/MasterPiece/wiiflow_pack.html

    Thanks again, great app

    I'm not stfour but hope you don't mind if I answer.
    Postloader atm has a plugin limit so not all the plugin will show (only 32 or so)
    so in your case you can either move those those lines up in the plugin ini giving them lower numbers (keep in mind you need to keep the numbers consecutive so might need to rename the other lines)
    or just wait for September until stfour increases the plugin numbers limit.

    And yes I made this Postloader pack to be used with the Wiiflow Masterpiece Pack (the only prerequisite)
    have in mind that scummvm is not compatible yet with PL also plugins with "|" in the argument line such as "Dosbox" won't autoboot either

    Have a nice day

    Where can I find an example of the correct plugin setting format for the latest version of Postloader?

    EDIT : oh, wait ... the 4.4.6 complete install package has a plugin.conf in it ... is that still the correct format?
    it says
    <unique_id>=<enabled?1:0>|<recurse?1:0>|<description>|<plugin_name.dol>|<romfolder>|<ext1>,<ext2>,...,<extN>|<defaulticon.png>|<arguments>

    For Maxternal !
    this is my plugins.con( remove the .TXT), I made this following AbdallahTerro Tips.
    Compare it with the original if it can help you !
    I made this because I need only these plugins, and everything works.
    Thanx again Abd...

    hope this can help You

    In case anyone wanted a tool to convert the WiiFlow plugin configuration to the PostLoader format, it's included in the Plugin editor tab of this app.
    http://www.mediafire.com/download/5yb97ybeea6v9qr/SourceMenuEditor.zip (updated link ... see below)
    It's still a work in progress but you should still be able to save the converted plugin.conf file. You'll just have to copy all the images from your WiiFlow source_menu folder to the PostLoader plugins folder manually for it to work completely.
