    Hi guys, I'm just wondering if anyone know, can scummvm be set up to use a usb harddrive to store the games on, rather than the SD card?

    Yes usb hard drives work fine with scummvm (which is great as games like Curse of Monkey Island and Full Throttle weigh in around 500mb).

    any clues as to how to set it up? I am curently using a hsb drive with the first partition used by the backup loader in that funky format, and the second partition is fat32. the only thing i can see in the scummvm menu is the ds card.

    (yes im a complete wii homebrew n00b, I only installed homebrew channel yesterday).

    I think, first partition needs to be FAT32, use your second partition for WBFS (usb backup loader format).

    Both MUST be primary partitions [​IMG]

    At least, thats how I have it set up, and most apps recognise the HDD (HBC, wadmanager etc).
    Haven't tested scummVM with it though.

    p.s. congrats on opening up to wii homebrew [​IMG]

    Apart from usb loaders all homebrew would require fat32 for it to be read off you usb hd (scuummvm, snes, vba, fce, wiiengine, freespace 2 etc etc).

    Just re-partition you drive.

    Yes I think so...

    Well you still have 2 options.

    If both partitions are of a similar size, then you could just use WBFS manager (one that supports HDD to HDD copy/clone) to

    1. Format your other (2nd) partition to WBFS
    2. Copy over the games from 1st WBFS partition to 2nd WBFS partition
    3. Format first partition to FAT32.

    OR, if that's not feasible, if you have enough space on another HDD, use WBFS manager to backup all your games from the WBFS hard-drive, format it how you like and then readd them.

    If you used the USB loader to backup games on the wii side, you will notice that it is much faster transferring the iso dumps from your PC.

    I think, it could be faster than redoing it all from scratch....

    MrTea: I don't know if there is any applications that can resize wbfs partitions.......

    [EDIT]

    Found a 20Gig Quantum Fireball, between my stuff [​IMG]

    Formatted on FAT32 and placed all homebrew stuff that is hdd capable on it, should be enough for now [​IMG]

    partitioning is good though... because then you don't need to swap devices... and u can keep your other HDD.

    It will be worth it over laziness in the long run lol!
