Heya, so I tryed this USB loader today and works all fine to make backups of my games but the "press 1 to download cover art" doesn't rly seem to work.. I get:
Network establishing..
Connection established.
Downloading cover art

Then i see the option menu again but the "press 1 to download cover art" option is gone but it wont show any coverart..
When i press + after this it gives me an error that it couldn't save hmm=/

SD card:
SD:/apps/usbloader/boot.dol
SD:/images/
SD:/wimages/

I tryed pasting the config examples into the config.txt aswell but that didn't help either.. =/

Help plx =)!

I had this same problem, but that was because I forgot to create the two folders 'images' and 'wimages' at the root of the card.

But it seems you have done that,

Not sure if it case-sensitive, but make sure the folders are spelled right and in all lower case on your card.

hmm ye they are case-sensitive.. i even did dl some covers for my pal games and put them in those folders but they refuse to show =/

The save error i described earlier mentioned a file "settings.cfg".

am i missing a config file probably?

C:\Users\Christian\Desktop\Ultimate V7.4\apps\usbloader
boot.dol
config.txt
config example.txt
config_readme.txt
titles.txt
titles example.txt

(I know most of there txt's are useless to have on the card

no, the settings.cfg is generated, if u do some settings ...
should work

which size are the covers ?
its important, that they have the size of 160x225 (in USB ISO LOADER GUI they are 160x224)

Edit: some downloaded coverart doen't work for me too....but if I download manualy on the pc, resize and convert it to *.PNG everythings fine.

Ive got the same problem with ONLY Excitebots cover. The cover is shown on the PC when I browse trough my SD card, but in Ultimate USB loader it doesn't show up, even I re-re-redownload it.

are you playing on 4:3 or 16:9? and yes you need cios36_rev10 use usbloader Ultimate V7.4
here's my config
wimages_path=SD:/wimages/
wbackground = wbg.png
covers = 1
download = 0
layout = ultimate_w
simple = 0
home = exit
wconsole_coords=116,40,404,150
wcovers_coords=255,210
console_color=6,15
entry_lines = 3
max_characters = 37
savesettings = 1
video = patch
language = english
widescreen = 1

with background by neorame http://rapidshare.com/files/225658667/wbg.png.html
i have all my images resized to 130x225 and make a folder called wimages and put on root of SD card, also put wbg.png in the same folder. for usbloader in your apps folder, all you need is boot.dol and config.txt hope this helps. any questions just pm me. i'm on widescreen ntsc tv. oh yeah one more thing for you to download covers change in config download = 1. why not just download all your covers from http://www.theotherzone.com/wii/index.php where you can just resize your covers there.
