    The only USB loader I use is wiiflow, but a lot of people prefer USB loader GX, why is that?

    And is there any other USB loader that has more compatibility with new games than wiiflow?

    Somewhere in the middle
    Configurable USB loader is the one I've used the most and it's never failed me, though I have both that and USB Loader GX. It's also, afaik, the most compatible. Not sure if it's gotten any updates after v70 though. I didn't use GX back in the day because it wasn't as updated and not all of my games would work, plus I still have a couple problems with alternate .dols. I have it because it looks nice and I often let family or friends use it.

    I've never used Wiiflow, so I can't really speak my opinion on it.

    They are all good but I stick with GX because of the gui. In my opinion, it has the best list view and that's how I like to see my games. I recommend trying them all and see what works best for you.

    I agree with Rat, Much better interface AND, as far as I've experienced, there are no compatibility issues [Except for the 3ish games that require ios9 or whatever (Splinter Cell, SSX, and something else), which won't work on any of them].

    Yes, you just have to WAD install the forwarding channel.

    I use Configurable USB Loader. It appears to have the least number of problems. Switching to Configurable USB Loader has, in the past, resolved issues people were having.

    everyone will say something different cos it all depends on personal taste. for instance i like wiiflow cos it looks good, loads fast and plays anything.

    You are wrong these games been working for a long time now.
    Just install the latest d2x cios and update your loader.

    Sorry, I didn't know, because I don't really keep up with the fixes for previously non-working games. Good to know though. Now I can play Splinter Cell without killing my disc drive.

    Fubuki-kun: GX is updated somewhat regularly (much less than before, because less compatibility issues exist now).
