Default theme cover: A cool feature here is that default cover will even show when only 2D cover is present to cover the blank areas as shown in the following previews
Tip: The first one is the default, to use another frame for the banners edit \WiiFlow\Themes\carbonic abz.ini file, search for "user5" and replace Tv1.png with tv2.png or tv3.png or tv4.png

*uNeek2o v95b4 + Neek Extras (QF/DM/custom titles/etc..) +Cert.sys_Extractor utility for ModMii Emunands by Fix94 (with my custom icon)
For Emunand Setup you can follow this tutorial: http://gbatemp.net/topic/333219-wiiflow-mod-and-emunand/
*Latest Forwarder Channel: WiiFlow Clouds Forwarder Channel v14b, Neek2o nswitch Channels for real and Emunands & WiiFlow Loader hidden channel v2 + WiiFlow Clouds Channel v15 for vWii
*20 Categories for easy filtering for all modes:
*Custom Titles File
*First things first: For proper function of Wii games and Homebrew apps: Make sure your Wii is properly modded and use ModMii to make your IOS/cIOS up to date. IOS 58, D2x cIOS v10 or 10alt are recommended. Original Hermes or Rodries cIOS mod are optional.
For Gamecube Games: DiosMios/DiosMios Lite latest wad should be installed into the Mios slot along with clean BC6. Devolution loader in \Wiiflow folder should be there for Devo to work.
Everything mentioned above is NOT in the pack (use ModMii or Google to get them).
Install the wads from wad\IOS_DM(L) folder:
BC-NUS-v6.wad on both real and Emunands
RVL-mios-v10.wad on Emunands
Real Nand IOS/cIOS:
Tip: d2x-v10-beta52 has higher compatibility for nand emulation and online stuff and less random crashes during gameplay that's why it's in slot 249
while d2x-v10-beta53 has 2 usb ports support and fully plug&play usb devices, meaning that you can connect them when the game asks for them
New: For WiiU/vWii use the D2x cIOS Installer Mod v2.2 by Fix94, run it from Homebrew Channel to build v52 or v53 cIOS
Or use the official installer: http://http://code.google.com/p/d2x-cios/downloads/list
More info about cIOS-v10/alt/vWii here: http://code.google.com/p/d2x-cios/wiki/How_to_choose_d2x_distribution
One of the following on real nand:
DIOSMIOS_2.6.wad (GC games on USB) (New)
DIOSMIOSLite_2.6.wad (GC games on SD) (New)
DMLr59mod[MIOS-v10].wad (GC games on SD old way)
Neek app files: In case di menu fails to launch GC/QF correctly i.e. wii shuts down replace 000000008.app file (i.e. Neek BC executable) with the one here - You can use just one at a time.
extract the rar file in Neek_app folder to your nands\plxxx\ (where plxxx is your Emunand folder name) and replace the existing file when prompted
DM2.6.rar is for Dios Mios where games are on USB device
DML2.6.rar is for Dios Mios Lite where games are on SD
QF0.1.rar is for Quad-Force where games are on SD (used for Triiforce Mario Kart GP 1 & 2 games only)
To use Devolution extract Devo_169.rar as is into root folder. loader.bin is in WiiFlow folder
GC tools are included in GC_PC_Tools.rar
Use them to covert the GC games to the proper format and the savegame files to NMM format:
DiscEX-v0.9-cred >>> Convert GC games into DiscEx format
DMToolbox-v0.3-cred >>> Convert GC games into any required format (new for 2 disc games support)
gci2nmm-v0.1b-tueidj >>> convert GC saves into NMM compatible format
GCReEx-v0.3-tueidj >>> Convert GC games into extracted GCReEx format
YCbYCr2BMPv2 >>> covert GC screenshots into Bitmaps (BMP)
cmdpack-1.03-win32-i386.zip Contains many useful Dos tools for Disc type conversion, compression, etc... (Help file included)
*Extract/copy all files to SD or USB root (sneek folder on USB only)
*Backup your “\WiiFlow\Settings\categories_v4.ini” and “\WiiFlow\Source_Menu\source_menu.ini” files in case you have made your favorites/categories and a custom plugin setup before or if you don’t want to use the ones provided here
**Install wads with a wad manager: WiiFlow Forwarder and WiiFlow loader channel v2 to all nands, neek2o to real nand, back to nand to Emunands.
For WiiU/vWii Install WiiFlow Channel - Clouds v15-vWii.wad using a wad manager
New: As an alternative method you can get the Wiiflow channels installed using "WiiFlow Channel Installer v1.1" HBC application by Fix94 on both Wii and WiiU/vWii.
P.S. This will install the default forwarder v14b by Fix94 and not the clouds forwarder channel mentioned above.
To install the clouds forwarder use a wad manager
Tip: When using the Channel installer v1.1 you can hit "uninstall channels" first then press the "install channels" button. This way will make sure that the channels will be installed smoothly without errors or conflicts.
*Carbonik Abz will be available in settings > theme selection
*Use ModMii to create an EmuNand on PC and cert.sys_extractor on Wii using Homebrew channel to get your “cert.sys” then copy it from SD root to EmuNand\Sys folder
*Edit individual plugin ini files to change the default Rom/game path if needed or just rename your rom folders as shown here: <illegal files>
*Extract and replace Source_menu.ini from the zip file in case you want to switch from Advanced to Basic
*Wiisx Folder can be on SD, USB(Fat) or USB(NTFS) partitions all roms should go into wiisx\isos folder
Tip 1: unecm.exe should be used on disc images with .ecm extention to uncompress them else they won't work you'll find it inside wiisx\isos folder also inside the cmdpack-1.03-win32-i386.zip file, just drag your ecm onto unecm.exe to get your uncompressed image
Also remember to change Bios from HLE to SD or USB for better compatibility
Tip 2: If Wiiflow hangs/or is stuck loading boot animation endlessly when going to Emumode (All Plugins selected), then you have too much games!!!
So move some ini files to "unused" folder inside \WiiFlow\Plugins folder.
Since many games are displayed twice or even more times you can move the ini files for emus that run same games/systems like vbanext&gambatte and keep the one you use i.e. vbagx for example.
It might take some trial and error but when you're below the memory limit all should work fine.
The cover display limit is theoretically around 65535 covers, but WF is currently unable to handle that much due to memory overload
Tip 3: Black screens when launching an Emu game are mainly due to wrong dol name or gamepath in the plugin ini file or mismatch of magic numbers between the source_menu and plugin.ini. But also you have to keep in mind that some emulators work better from SD, others from USB first active Fat partition so make sure you look into this when you face problems.
Also don't forget to delete your old \WiiFlow\Cache\lists folder and \Wiiflow\Settings\gameconfigXX filesand even sometimes \apps\wiiflow\wiiflow.ini file.
Tip 4: when facing problems going back to WiiFlow or to Emunand or when the HDD is not initialized on startup, make sure you have the latest v14b forwarder and v2 hidden loader wads installed, if you use your own custom forwarder make sure it has the default ID4 as the official forwarder.
keep in mind many language file inis are still not up to date
*Wiiflow devs (old and new) especially Fix94 the magnificent , Overjoy the Neek King and Fledge68 the hero for enabling Custom TV frames and custom missing covers use
*Crediar for Sneek, DM(L) and PC Tools
*Overjoy for Neek2o
*Tueidj for Devolution and PC tools
*Benjay the legend for his original Carbonic theme
*Mastershoes the awesome, for his hard work (magic numbers, plugin inis and ogg files) and his huge library of games and covers
*Boston BC for the original category file
*Maxternal for custom titles file converter utility
*Drexyl for the his autoboot plugin mods
