    Hi guys. My time has gotten extremely limited the past year and I haven't been able to update the Wiki much/if at all. If anyone wants to take it over please PM me.

    Thanks.

    Hi peeps! Question.....
    Having a conversation with another member over on mastershoes's Cover Collections thread regarding Super Famicom covers - I'm making custom covers at the moment but both him and myself (and I'm sure many others) would prefer to use the retail boxes as covers themselves, untouched... Trouble is the dimensions are off and they look daft. Here's an example of a SFC box:

    Notice how tall and thin the box is: using a regular flow would make the image too squashed...
    So my main question is, can the 'box' be altered to accommodate this type? And a second, dafter, question.... in the case of SFC boxes here they were made in both the vertical format and horizontal:

    ....Can we have both in the same flow? (I know, I seriously doubt this one, but it's worth asking :lol: )

    I asked this a long time ago, and never got an answer. You would think that since each plugin has its own magic number, and can be assigned to a different coverflow, that when combining multiple sources that it would automatically switch flows depending on which game is being viewed.

    But alas, nobody seems to care anymore for poor little Wiiflow, and our cries have fallen on deaf ears. :(

    I think at this time your best bet is using a separate source button/plugin for the SFC covers with different dimensions, and creating a new coverflow to reflect the size. I don't think we'll ever see the day where wiiflow will be able to combine different coverflows with combined plugins.

    EDIT: Th3-Blu3BoMb3r - I think it's the + and - buttons together?

    Sadly with the Wii being no longer sold and effectively into an 'old console' status there is not much interest in improving it. I need to give up the wiki and associated domains (BTW Wiiflow.com is available now but I'm not buying it) - and nobody has expressed an interest in taking it over.

    *sigh* - Yeah I guessed that'd be the answer.... Some members already did this if I remember anyway, although I'd prefer to have them bunged in with the SNES ones, mainly as I had a US SNES unlocked to play all regions back in the day.. Suppose having a separate source etc would allow me to chuck some of the quality SFC covers of for example Link to the Past whilst being able to keep/actually play the Western version, but I'm still undecided with this (and don't know how to create a new coverflow that'd get the box size right either...)

    Finally got around to installing Nintendont on Wiiflow....

    Loaded up Mario Kart GP 1 and it boots fine but its a Stuttering/jittering mess looks like Framerate issues

    Are all Triforce games like that?

    That should be it according to this ticket: http://code.google.com/p/sdl-mame-wii/issues/detail?id=28

    It's either +/- at the same time or some combination of those.

    I've been out of the loop for quite some time as I've been focusing on newer games coming out.

    Who's currently developing WiiFlow?

    I'm a little confused... Is there a way to permanently show my emunand-wiiware games together with my Wii games in one coverflow? I would like to use only one source-menu icon for them both (I have 5 icons: Gameboy, NES, SNES, Gamecube and Wii)

    so the year is up for the domain? thats alright. I'm currently still listed as owner of the wiki and did start making some changes to it but once again family comes first. don't worry about the domain. and don't worry about the wiki I'll take it back and just work on it whenever i find time. Thanks BostonBC.

    pBullet wiiflow stopped at mod r1076 but Abdallahterro has added many features to it especially for nintendont and calls it his wiiflow mastermod. check out the wiki or abdallahterro's sig for a direct link. wiiflowiki link is in my sig

    TheSly the source menu can be used to select just one source at a time or for multi select sources. multi select is off by default. go into settings and then startup and then find source menu settings there should be an option to turn it on/off. once its on go to the source menu and press B on wiimote when selecting your sources and then click the exit button or simply point off-screen and press B to return to coverflow with your sources showing.

    not
    Thank You, I'll try this.
    I think I did this before but these new settings were not saved. After I restarted my Wii the sources were separated again.
    I want to fix this permanently so I can delete the sourcemenu button for my Wiiware games...

    Very cool, thanks. I just won't renew the other domains or if you want them let me know and I'll transfer them.

    What was the cause for the end of WiiFlow's official development? Was it lack of interest?

    Is there a way to set the default coverflow for each sourcemenu category (eg. wii, nand, n64, SNES)? Also, I recently installed the wiiflow boot.dol with priiloader, however now I can't see my nand in wiiflow. Is there a way to fix this without booting to system menu first?

    lack of interest and Fix94 moved on to nintendont. There's a small chance Fix94 might get back to it but i wouldn't hold your breath.

    Any interested dev. with experience in C / C++ can contact FIX94 or Overjoy if they want to go on with wiiflow development.
