    Hi guys!

    I couldn't find the answer to this question...

    I pretty much have everything modded and set up the way I want!
    I boot directly into USBLoader gx v3.0 upon power on and go back to it if I choose "Wii Menu" after hitting home button!

    I would like to completely replace USBLoader gx as my Wii menu - but I need to know if it is possible to:

    **manually arrange channels in USBLoader gx
    (outside of the defaults set in the options at the top of the screen)

    thanx!

    Short answer : No, it's not currently possible, and will not be added.
    I once explained the problem which such features will create.
    I'll copy/paste it here:

    Thanx Cyan. I had not seen nor heard of that answer before. I really appreciate you just answering instead of getting upset. The full explanation was rather interesting. I can see how adding the functionality I want would be possible, but I also see that it would require quite a bit of work from the developer.

    However. I have always been of the opinion that dev's should be compensated for their work -- And I would be more than happy to purchase a "Pro Version" of USBLoader gx.
    As with most people, I probably will not donate to a dev unless:
    1. he/she demands it and threatens to discontinue the app/project/tool
    2. I use the product on a daily basis

    But if a watered down version was FREE and I absolutely fall in love with it, I would be more than happy to PURCHASE a "Pro Version".

    And with all that being said --- I love my Wii now and thank you for your reply Cyan

    I would love to have separate categories in USB Loader GX for Wii, Game cube, VC, and WiiWare.

    I suppose this isn't possible...

    Is there a way to have separate tabs for Virtual Console, and Emulators?

    Change it anyway even though it looks right. Also, make sure your themes are in the folder properly. The ".them" file goes in the /theme/ folder and the assets go in whatever folder is listed in the theme file as its folder name under "Image-Folder:".

    Would I only be able to launch emulators via the Homebrew channel while in USB Loader GX?

    Also, how do I prevent the real NAND channels from showing up in the WiiWare section?

    Click the 4th button and turn of the NAND option.

    OK cool, thanks! Too bad there isn't a separate tab for real NAND titles.

    Uh, you could read the posts at least on this page. I linked a mod that does that. :/
