I'll polish this later and include a lot of games, after work.

DOS GAMES

OpenTyrian Wii

Can be used from SD or USB device. Extract to the root of your device.

1.8 r45:
* Classic Controller now working again.
* USB support working again.
* Wii U Pro Controller support.

Descent-Wii


Changelog:
Can be used from SD or USB device. Extract to the root of your device.

1.13:
You can run it from SD or USB.

Partially compatible with the Wii U Pro Controller. If you want to use it, you need to turn off the Wiimote when you're at the title screen and then sync the WUPC. You also need to disable the analog sticks in the game Settings, or else the ship goes crazy.

Hello.:)

Enjoy! ..... since you're the resident Wiiflow expert. B-)

Unfortunately,most Users only talk/use USBLoader GX and/or Configurable USBLoader..
Myself also comes very late to WiiFlow (Lite) because of this "Cliche".
I think,WiiFlow deserves the same Status,Respect and "Usage" like them because the Progress in Developing with the last Versions was impressive and awesome.

Plus - there are only very few "Issues" with "certain" USB Devices.:D

Thank you.:)

Hey @niuus
I've tested Tyrian and Descent from USB
Tyrian is working (including the Classic Controller, but not by default, I had to map the keys). However, it works great!

Edit: Descent is working good from HBC, but it's giving me a black screen when booting from Wiiflow. I've used DESCENT.HOG and DESCENT.PIG from the GOG version (v1.4a), including the mp3 tracks.
The game files are in usb:/apps/descent, the mp3 files are in usb:/apps/descent/music and they are renamed following the readme file.

Hi Tetsuo. Much more details would be good for everyone: the last official 1.10 release worked with Wiiflow? (both on SD and USB). Is that black screen only happening with USB? Did you try only one device or did you use another one just in case? Is Descent 1.5 the same?

The black screen happens with SD and USB. I still have to try with the official 1.10 release.
I'll also try to update Descent to 1.5

I tried version 1.10 on Wiiflow and the result was the same, black screen, both via USB and SD. https://gbatemp.net/threads/the-gre...l-for-adventurers.563575/page-10#post-9118174
Then probably the code for wiiflow compatibility was never there. I wouldn't be surprised, i don't think Wiiflow has that many years around, or at least it wasn't originally made to load anything other than Wii games? I remember the best game loader at that time was CFG USB Loader, updated and packed with features! Haven't used Wii loaders since 2013, i think.

Tyrian is excellent. Quite possibly my favorite game from the DOS era. Although Warcraft is excellent too.
It is really good, yes. Not a game that i played back then, but i gave it a try with this Wii port, great schmup.

Descent can be used with Gamecube controllers?
Nope, Wiimote+Nunchuk or Wii Classic Controller (and partially WUPC).

This, or maybe it needs a particular arguments line in the plugin .ini (the file that tells Wiiflow how to launch a particular app)
For example, the great majority of times it's:
arguments={device}:/{path}/|{name}

but some apps require slightly different arguments, like DosboxWii:
arguments=-conf|{device}:/{path}/{name}
or very different ones, like for Quake:
arguments={device}:/roms/quake/q1|-game|{device}:/{path}|-listen|4

Maybe descent needs a particular way to be launched and not the "standard" {device}:/{path}/|{name}.

edit: v1.10 not working too as plugin

Can wiiflow launch like a normal homebrew app?
