    Hi all,

    I have put a few more games on my HDD using WBFS manager and, as always, plugged it back into my Wii and attempted to download the game cover images via USB Loader GX BUT none of them are downloading and I keep getting a message saying they couldn't be found which is odd because the cover art shows up fine in WBFS.

    Now I thought it might just be they where not up on the servers yet but after adding more games none of them can be found now either which I though was a bit odd.

    Is this something that happens or am I doing something wrong (or something is not quite right with my USB loader)?

    Do I need to do something to get them to pick them up or put them on manually (how do I do that and where do I download the images from to do it manually)?

    The games I have put on are:

    Ashes 2009
    Conduit
    Metroid Prime 3
    Tiger Woods 10
    Indiana Jones
    Super Paper Mario

    Thanks!

    Wiitdb.com is down, no way to download images now with official build. There is a modified build available in the USB Loader GX to download covers from elsewhere, but I can't run any games with that build.

    Oh right, how long has it been down for because I have been trying to get these covers for a week or so now and was able to download a new release via the update section last Friday (which is why I thought it was odd that I could download a new version but no cover images).

    You couldn't be a dear and tell me which usbloader thread by any chance? I'm happy to have a read through if its a known problem but not sure what thread it would be in?

    You could use CoverFloader which is a "just-as-nice" CoverFlow application which still lets you backup games 002 fix etc. The difference is it actually downloads covers.

    I thought it was a sticky on the first page which is why I couldn't see it!

    Thank you and God bless my child [​IMG]

    Really? Well, I suppose if you needed covers that badly you'd manually add them or move on to a different loader. We'll miss you...
    Please spare the GX team from your passive-aggressive complaining...
