well, i have a lot of problems with USB loader GX and USB key, it still continue to "un-hide" the usb key or other issues like that..for example it shows waiting for HDD and the countdown, when it reaches zero it starts normally but only shows the nand channels and the Wii games are nowhere to be found even when you select show Wii games, in the menu, it just says USB device not initialized!
I don't know if it is an issue related to my usb key...i could try to buy another one...
another guy has same issue, i'm reading in Discord channel: some users suggest to replace the usbloadr_gx folder (in the app folder) with a new one he provided in the Discord channel...
At the left you can see my current usb_loader_gx folder, at the right the one posted by the guy in Discord:

He suggested to replace my current usb_loader with the one he posted. The cIOS installation should be correct, i follwed this updated guide: https://wiiu.hacks.guide/#/vwii-modding

I could try to change the usbloadergx folder and see if his version works correctly..

I didn't set any custom path on usb loadr gx...i suppose it will be in the Features settings...? What is the patch i have to set?

thanks!

No, it's not in features. Go right a couple times. If you didn't set the custom path, how do you expect it to install to the emunand?

ah ok.
Well, i have replaced my previous USB LOADER GX folder with the new one proveded by the guy on Discord. Now i have to check if now the issues will be fixed...
in the meanwhile, here below the Custom path present in my previous USB Loader GX version: sd/nands/01

and here the path of my current USB Loader GX version: usb1/nands/vwii

Which is the better one? And is it necessary to do anything else before to install the wad file using the EMU NAND wad manager --> FILE?
thank you very much

the usb one is better probably. that's where my emunand is anyway. you shouldn't have to do anything more, just install file/wad or folder if you have multiple wad files. see if it works.

thanksw. As you know (see also my other post https://gbatemp.net/threads/madworl...-screen-on-usb-loader-gx.592092/#post-9540912) I still have a lot of issues with USB key...so i will try to buy another one: if i would not solve all the issues, i will evaluate to run games from SD with WiiFlow...it's a nightmare...i have done a lot of attempts without any success...i always have problems even if i change the USB loader file...
I can try to install the wad in the usb just to see if it works. If so, i can change the paths (NAND emu path and NAND Emu channel path) in order to install it in the SD?
thanks!

your issue may be the usb key. the wii u doesn't like flash drives most of the time, so you usually need to use either a powered hdd or an hdd with a y cable. I don't use wii flow, just usb loader gx. the only games I have on the sd card are cube games. I think that and emunand are the only ones compatible with usb loader gx. I don't think it can load wii games from sd afaik.

something is very wrong with your emunand. it should make that path automatically, but it error'd at some point it would seem. I'm not sure what happened.

btw, here's my vwii emunand, and it works perfectly:

ah... but it should be necessary to performs some action in order to create the emunand folders? I haven't done anything to create folders...the vwii sub-folders should be automatically created during the vWii hack installation? I followed this guide, i know that it is really good: https://wiiu.hacks.guide/#/vwii-modding

the vwii subfolders should be created when you create an emunand within usb loader gx. I have no idea why it's causing an error unless it's the usb key or usb device you're using.

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------

btw, I'm using 3.0 rev. 1271, because 1272 is slower at booting my hard drive. a lot of the time, I don't update things if everything is working, or possibly a bug was introduced with a newer version. if it does what I need it to do, there's no reason to. that's why I'm still using 5.xxx version of nintendont. everything works with both that and usb loader gx.

ah :(
well the 1272 that a guy provided me on Discord works better than the 1272 i downloaded from another site. I don't have the 1271 now.
Just to know if i have correctly understood: i create an emunand when i push "EMUNAND WAD MANAGER" ?
thank you

understood. Do you think that it could be possibile that you send me your automatically created folder in a zip file? Could it work?

Last question, please: is it possible to load games with Wiiflow from a USB key? i tried to configure this in the PARTITION option but i can only select SD. It is not possible to choose USB or BOTH, for example.

thank you very much
