    Just rename them manually on the USB itself using your File Explorer

    How rename them? Is like the folder nedd to have the same name as the wbfs?

    EDIT: I solved by taking all the bad named folders (with the wbfs inside), puting them all to the desktop and then puting again in the HDD using Wii backup manager.

    One more question, there is a way that let read usb loader gx all the wads games installed in the SD card?

    Pretty sure you don't have to have the Wii games in separate folders. I have all of mine, probably 1,300+ all just under the single wbfs folder with game name and id code like this: usb/wbfs/Ghost Squad [RGSE8P].wbfs

    Now GameCube games work better in separate folders with the actual game name relabeled game.iso in each of their respective folders like this: usb/games/Resident Evil [GBIE08]/game.iso

    Hello. I'm having a problem with GoldenEye 007 on the Wii loaded from an external hard drive. I have 2 GameCube controllers and 2 Wiimotes + Classic Controllers I want to use for the 4 player splitscreen. The GC controllers work fine as long as they're in sockets 3 & 4 and the first Wiimote syncs. However, the 2nd wiimote will sync and say that it's player 2 but then immediately turn off. This doesn't happen in any other games, any way to stop this?

    EDIT: sorry I'm still newish here, I think this is the wrong place for asking these questions. I'll make my own thread

    The sync button was one of the first things I tried, it didn't work. I'll try redumping the game.

    Try load game trough other cios. I dont know if you have d2x (you problably should). Change load ios in game settings to 258 or 257. Try the other loaders too (cfg, wiiflow, postloader).

    Also try other region version of the game (pal/ntsc)

    Don't worry it works now for some reason. I still can't have the gamecube controllers in slot 1 and 2 but that's alright

    Seems Nintendont and usb loader gx doesn't work correct with autoboot. I selected autoboot at usb loader settings but Nintendont loaded up without autoboot. Had to select it manually again in the Nintendont loader then it worked. I tried it with kirby airride and it worked nicely. But got another Problem now... If i try to run another gc game, autoboot works but it always starts kirby airride. Seems usb loader gx dont communicate correctly with the Nintendont loader to run the right game

    Ive been investigating how to make the USB GC adapter work on vWII mode for WII games. It seems especially important for accessories that made use of the GC ports on original WIIs such as dance pads etc.

    Scouring the internet I found a few ongoing projects regarding this but they seem to have stalled for a while.

    What are the chances of something like: https://github.com/Chadderz121/wup-028-bslug or https://github.com/wilm0x42/wii-gc-adapter-inject eventually being integrated into usbloader gx. It would be amazing to have full native GC port support in vWII mode.

    I realize its a really difficult thing and it requires patches to be created for each individual supported game... but it looks like there was alot of working being done for this at some point.

    EDIT: after scouring the internet it seems this is a highly requested feature. https://bitbuilt.net/forums/index.php?threads/gc2wiimote-beta.2945/page-6#post-40532

    People may not want to use fat32 if they can to avoid splitting the images
    You should message blackb0x about adding that feature, although I'm sure he's kind of busy getting custom private servers (URL patching with a custom link/IP) working. Personally I'd love to see gc2wiimode integrated in usbloadergx

    Fat32 is the best format for Wii, as it can store Wii and GameCube games, is generally snappy, and Wii Backup Manager can split your files so I don't know why you wouldn't want to split your files?

    First and foremost, my gratitude to everyone involved in the development and contribution of this project as it is a fantastic tool we all can enjoy at no cost. Thank you!

    I simply want to share my experience as a newbie for those who may encounter the same dilemma I faced not long ago with the forwarder channel:
    • Once installed, if the forwarder channel recognizes the SD card but no USB drive, make sure to use a partitioning tool (I used Macrorit Partition Expert Free) and set the USB drive as primary, otherwise the Wii Channel will not detect the drive at all.
    I can also recommend checking Priiloader as well as it has useful tools, and if your main use of the Wii is to load backups from a drive, you can designate the forwarder channel to boot directly from start, saving you time entering the USB drive.

    This has been a fantastic experience troubleshooting my own mistakes and issues which led me to learn a lot about the tools and how the software works (On the surface at least).

    Thank you for reading, have a wonderfully blessed day everyone. Cheerios~♥
