    I use two of them, WiiFlow Lite and USB Loader GX. Some games work better (are more stable) on one or another, so I try them both. I haven't tried Configurable USB Loader.

    There's nothing wrong with using only one of them, but I like to have more options available.

    Which one do you prefer though ? If you could only have one, which one would you choose ?

    Also, Which one is better at listing GC games ? which one has better compatibility with nintendont ?

    Aren't the USB Loaders all just frontends? Aren't the cIOS' what decide the compatability?

    Hello.:)

    All 3 of them.

    - to support the Developers.
    - to get Games working,if they would not work with one of the Loaders (One Loader is ALWAYS working.:D).

    The "easiest" is the Configurable USBLoader (MOD),in 99 Percent of the Cases - nothing to do/change a Setting.
    No really Knowledge about "Things" is needed - just "Plug and Play.

    USBLoader GX needs Knowledge about how Things are working.Very good Way for learning and understanding.
    With @blackb0x ´s Time and Help it is actual further developed.
    The main Developer @Cyan decided to do other Things (but has always an Eye on it...I know,he is watching us..:D)

    WiiFlow Lite (MOD) from @fledge68 is an awesome All in One Loader not only for GameCube/Wii Games.
    Very easy to use,needs also "Understanding" how Things work.
    It has an awesome Support for Cover/Art/Themes/Emulators and is still further developed.

    So you maybe understand,why maybe using all 3 Loaders.

    Thank you.:)

    Whats the difference between Wiiflow and Wiiflow lite ?

    Wiiflow has problems with Nintndont ... does Wiiflow lite have the same problem ?

    Do USB Loader GX and Configurable USB loader play nice with Nintendont ?

    Thank you.:)

    WiiFlow is outdated (v4.2.1 from December 2013)
    and is no longer maintained/further developed.Please do no longer use it.:)

    All 3 Loaders play nice with Nintendont.:)

    Maybe I should've mentioned that I load NGC games directly from Nintendont which is loaded using the Homebrew Channel. I don't use them to load anything diferent but Wii games. Also, I don't use forwarders/channels on Wii Menu (except for the Homebrew Channel ofc), I like to keep it simple but totally functional, so if an issue arises I know what to check and I won't be guessing.
