    Yep!
    Also, in the 7th page of config, I never see FAT1, only WBFS1 or NTFS1 and some times corrupt characters (USB Key with FAT, NTFS and WBFS partitions) I notice I must clic 2 times on arrow (left or right when select partition) to switch between WBFS1 and NTFS1, but only 1 time to switch between NTFS1 and WBFS1

    Hi all,

    first of all thanks to the devs.... I made some tests on R36 and I just would like to share my experience...

    I have cIOS249 rev17 and cIOS222 v4... i have all the config files (themes and cache folder, language.ini, titles.ini, wiiflow.ini) in SD:/apps/wiiflow/ as required starting from R31
    I have the covers in the root of the SD, and the corresponding needed paths are set in the wiiflow.ini file

    In my first attempts I had no way to use the loader... always error "WBFS_open failed"....
    Then I cancelled the wiiflow.ini file and the music changed....

    The loader is somewhat buggy, but the FAT32 support works....

    I tested my three HD (all of them with a single partition, the first WBFS formatted, the second FAT32 formatted, the third one is NTFS)

    - No problems at all with the WBFS HD, games loaded, covers shown, config screens in italian language as requested

    - The games are loaded in the FAT32 HD, but no covers are shown and everything is in english and not italian (it seems that the wiiflow.ini settings and the languages.ini file are not loaded and hence the loader does not speak italian and does not know where to find the covers)

    - No way to use the NTFS HD... I just received "WBFS_open failed" error, configuring the default partition either in NTFS1, FAT1, or WBFS1...

    I hope these infos might be useful to the devs to remove the bugs...

    Thanks to the devs for the very good job done...

    By the way, I took care about the italian translation of WiiFlow when Hibernatus was the dev.... of course I am ready to update the translation, just let me know ....

    Well I recieve WBFS_OPEN failed -1 error at startup. IOS222 v4 already installed and I changed partition: WBFS1 in the wiiflow.ini to partition: NTFS1. Any ideas?

    However, reading from a FAT and WBFS partition works flawlessly.

    Just tried r36 for the first time, both wbfs and fat partitions worked with no issues at present. Havent tried much only launching games I already had on my Wii HD, partition 1 wbfs and partition 2 FAT. I will try my NTFS drive later..gotta play games at present.

    Thank you r-win.

    I am also getting the WBFS_OPEN failed -1 error at startup. I have IOS222 v4 installed and I put partition=FAT1 in wiiflow.ini. The FAT partition is the only partition on my hard drive.

    You don't have to test NTFS at present, since I've already fixed a stupid (small) bug in my working copy. It will be fixed in the next test revision.

    Hmm look if you have the right paths set in the wiiflow.ini (they are most likely set to usb:/wiiflow/boxcovers and so on) or if data_on_usb is set to yes

    Then use another loader...

    If all the Bugs are fixed, I'll switch from CFG-Loader back to WiiFlow. It has all features you need (except FanArt [​IMG]), it doesn't need new big features like sorting/disc loading/etc. . I just want it to be bug free and up-to-date with the Cheat-Engine/cIOS, and then it's the best loader in my opinion. The GUI is still the best one you can get (with ALL Homebrew-Apps).

    First thanks to the team for the NTFS/FAT support !

    I confirm that my NTFS1 partition isn't detected (error -1).

    Hope this will be improved soon coz eagerly want to be back on WiiFlow Style [​IMG]

    we already have an unflawwed way of loading wii games... why are we trying for more? making my fave loader buggy. if you want to keep files on the same hard drive you keep your games just do what i do!!! i made a 15 gb fat32 partition and made it active and primary then i made the rest 985gb a wbfs drive also active...

    i can load homebrew and keep wiiflow covers and such on hard drive as well as a HUGE wbfs partition... its win win.

    PLUS if any of you out there are like me and use a ppc mac(no windows emulation whatsoever(well there is but it does not work))) , there is no real way to covert my iso's for fat32 playback.

    are the covers downloading ok again?
    why add something and break another.
    not going to update my revision untill i see that everything it had is back again.

    also making all these extra buttons is really messing up the poor themers.
    why cant we have it auto detect fat32, wbfs, or ntfs. or a menu that pops up while loading the program..

    will wiiflow work when using separate usb drives? i have a 16GB flash drive formatted with FAT which i use to store apps and .wads and such(which is currently connected to the back of my wii) and a portable 500GB(partitioned to have 340GB wbfs & 120GB ntfs[for windows usage]) usb hdd WBFS formatted which isn't connected as of now. so what i'm asking here is that since wiiflow needs a wbfs drive and a FAT drive, will it work if i use the usb flash drive first upon loading the app and then switching it out for the wbfs formatted hdd? also, i use a 1GB sd card specially stored with many wiiware games that is almost all filled up, but with 14-15 MB remaining.

    At the first start of WiiFlow, it checks if there's a FAT32-Partition on your Drive. If there isn't, it places itself (and all Covers/Themes/etc.) in the SD. So you'll need a FAT32 AND WBFS (if you want to load from WBFS. You could also load from FAT32/NTFS) active at the same time. Switching won't work. And 14-15 MB should be enough for WiiFlow itself, but you won't have any space for covers/themes/etc., so it's kinda useless...

    Though, the NTFS-Lib is getting better, maybe sometimes WiiFlow can write Games/Images/etc. on an NTFS-Partition...but not right now.

    Its not good though, it slows down the coverflow too much IMO ^^
