    U should still have the option there. Can u launch wiiware with the neek2o option Th3-Blu3BoMb3r? By the way drakorex why are you using neek2o as the return to channel option?

    Let me make sure I understand what you want to do:
    Code:
    Turn on Wii -->Priiloader set to boot WiiFlow w/WF-Priiloader-Forwader-Loader-DWFA.dol -->
    launch Wiiware with neek2o--> Exit WiiWare ---> Return to real NAND
    Is that a correct booting procedure for you? Or do you want something else.

    Yes yours is set to WiiFlow, so it reloads to WiiFlow after it launches a game. I need to understand why you guys want to return to neek2o. If it's somewhat relevant to what you guys are trying to do there is an option in wiiflow.ini
    Code:
    neek_return_default=no
    which will keep you in NEEK if set to yes.

    yes i can launch WW/VC with the neek2o option this is what im trying to do so far i have my (return to channel: wiiflow) that is what i want it as, and all my WW/VC games have the auto neek2o option turned to "ON", after i load a WW/VC game it returns to the "emunand wiiflow" but from here when i want to get back to real nand i have no easy way to to return to real nand

    Yes, back in the olden days, pre-neek overlay priiloader hacks, Real nand Priiloader booted wiiflow, wiiware launched with neek would try to exit to neek system menu, but instead would with it's priiloader, autoboot switching back to real nand, to then boot back into wiiflow. It was glourious, and the circle of life was complete. :)

    And also I should add, Neek Wiiflow had its own separate ini. If that were the case today, then I could have just Neek wiiflow set to return to neek, instead of the ini being shared by both and causing problems.

    Ok it seems I have the function of neek_return_default backwards. Here is the changelog in regards to that function
    Code:
    -added new option, "neek_return_default" (no by default), if you
    set it to no then wiiflow will use the "path" directory in [NAND]
    section to return to neek, if you set it to yes then wiiflow will
    not set any path to return to neek
    Try setting it to yes and let me know how it goes. It doesn't seem like tonight I'll be able to try anything out. My girl is bugging me that it's our date night and to stay away from the Wii lol.

    Returning to real NAND WiiFlow isn't really possible, I think.
    You can return to neek mode Wiiflow through the forwarder channel
    OR
    to real NAND system menu through the nSwitch(neek2o or "back to nand") channel

    If you wanted to go to real NAND wiiFlow instead of real NAND system menu you could always tell real NAND priiloader to autoboot wiiflow
    BUT
    priiloader would have to also autoboot WiiFlow every time you turn it on as well for that so not sure if that's what you want.

    Here's a simple solution, let's ask the devs if it's possible or not lol.

    FIX94 or fledge68 is something like this possible?
    Code:
    Turn on Wii -->Priiloader set to boot WiiFlow w/WF-Priiloader-Forwader-Loader-DWFA.dol -->
    launch Wiiware with neek2o--> Exit WiiWare ---> Return to real NAND
    If so what would be the proper configuration to get it to work right? I would try a few things myself but tonight it's a no go, and it seems that Drakorex has been wracking his head over this for a while now lol. Tomorrow I work all day too so depending how I feel I'll give this a run tomorrow night.

    The latter is what I want, and have done. I shun the system menu, wiiflow is my new home. I tried setting neek to autoboot neek, but that creates a problem launching wiiware.

    Read my post with the changelog Th3-Blu3BoMb3r, I had the function of the feature backwards, set it to yes because then it won't set a neek path by default.

    Okay guys, I just updated my source menu editor so now subfolder support DOES work (thanks MassiveRican for pointing that out) and I also fixed the bug where using files ending in uppercase PNG instead of lowercase png would crash WiiFlow. (It will avoid adding this error to source_menu.ini but if you already have a buggy source_menu.ini file you'll at least need to click on the offending buttons to fix them.)

    Well, there's a whole lot of things that Java just kinda does for you that I would have to write myself on a Wii so it's not exactly just a copy and paste job but it's not a bad idea and would be cool. I'll ... probably get around to it someday.

    Just a note about neek2o and real nand thingy:
    1.When you exit a neek2o WW and you are in neek-wiiflow you can use "Exit to real Nand" option (it's in the same spot as "Exit to neek2o"
    2.If you can't see those buttons in the "exit menu page" then you probably didn't update your theme so go ahead and delete the default.ini or update the theme you are using.
    using old themes can cause many buttons to overlap.

    I personally see one advantage when exiting to neek-wiiflow post neek2o which is you can launch more wiiware without delay. Though Wii games on ntfs and GC/QF will shutdown the wii in this case, and most emulators won't work too:)

    In the past it was possible to set it up and avoid that inbetween step. I currently have it set up as I need it, except the way it is now, I can't actually get into neek mode when I want without fiddling with settings. The only reason I can even see neek mode being of use to me is for launching Driver SF. I wish that
    A. neek would go back to/could be modded to have its own priiloader again
    B. wiiflow could have a separate ini for neek mode again, or
    C. Wii games could be booted with neek2o as wiiware is.

    Around somewhere
    FYI, Overjoy disabled priiloader in the later neek2o versions because it interfered, and thats why he also added the hacks to neek2o itself.
    You can still use the autostart homebrew function, as long as you have a channel for it installed...
