    I have a few versions of new Super mario bros.
    and so far there are two versions I cannot add for the life of me to my HDD for usb loader to play:
    NSMB 3 The Third Level (shows up as NSMB 2 the next level)
    and
    DU Super Mario 2.1 madness returns (also shows up as NSMB 2 the next level)

    and of course I already have the NSMb 2, so how do I add these?
    and is it still possible to get the covers if i change anything?

    am simi-new to this soft-modded wii.

    any help/input you can give would be great! thanks.

    Use wii scrubber to change boot id
    1:- Open image in wii scrubber
    2:- Just under the unscrub button Right click WII DISC and click on change boot id.
    Try that should be done just try not to use another id you already have loaded
    You can use the covers just rename them with same id

    Engine room, learning
    USBloaderGX have an internal function to do it too.
    Go to settings > GUI > Display : Both
    Go to main screen and select the "List layout"
    find your game and highlight it to get its cover and data on the left
    click on the gameID and enter a new one.

    I don't know what happens with save files. it could share the saves with all your games.

    I'm currently working on adding duplicate detection for GameCube games, it should work with Wii games too (but all games will keep the same ID for the save files).
    But for the moment, just use a different ID in the loader, or using an ISO editor like WiiScrubber.
