    So after ripping my games into WiiFlow, I noticed that titles were all wibbly wobbly. Primary examples are Baten Kaitos and Resident Evil. They Show up as

    Baten Kaitos Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean
    Baten Kaitos Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean Disc 2
    Resident Evil
    Resident Evil Disc 2

    What I want them to show up as are:

    Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean (D1)
    Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean (D2)
    Resident Evil 1 (D1)
    Resident Evil 1 (D2)

    Now, I plugged the hard drive into my computer and found the where all the games were located and changed each and everyone one of their titles to the appropriate name using Wiims ISO Tools. I ended up doing all 60 gamecube games I own. Along with the 45 Wii games I own. Making their titles perfect.

    I then deleted the WiiTDB/GameTDB files. & as it turns out, that made all my gamecube games use their custom 'titles' within the ISO image, but not Wii games. They're using their default titles (before I changed their titles using Wiims), which are horrible. I'm guessing there is another title field in the header of Wii games that Wiims isn't paying attention to that I need to change to get the titles to show up correctly? I also tried making a custom_titles.ini file in the settings folder but I may have formatted it wrong seeing as the wiki page on that file is no longer working, though I hope that I can just get WiiFlow to look at their header titles instead, that way I can continue to rip games to WiFlow without manually editing both the text file and the ISO title header on the drive.

    Another quick thing, in the Gamecube section, it finds the second disc of whatever game has one automatically and adds "Disc 2" at the end of the name. That's really not needed seeing as I put either (D1) or (D2) in the title of the disc itself. I realize that's just a feature of how WiiFlow works so without changing the code, I can't get rid of that which really isn't a huge deal. I'm just curious if anyone knows how it's figuring out which disc is which. They both have the same ID6 so I can't figure out how Wiiflow is checking that data.

    Thanks :)

    Okay, that was a rather interesting issue with changing the internal name within the ISO itself. WiiFlow automatically adds the "disk 2" to the end because most people don't think of that and the name is otherwise always the same. (The internal name in the ISO is the same OR if they're using the GameTDB name, that goes by the ID6 so ends up with the same thing, too) It can tell the difference by actually reading the right after the ID6 on the disk. (The ID6 is the first 6 bytes on the disk. The 7th byte tells it which disk it is.)

    The format for the custom_titles.ini is the following :
    Code:
    
    [TITLES]
    GameID=new name
    Game02=another new name
    
    Just remember to leave the first line of the file blank and there's no space before or after the =
    If you want a workaround you could always change the names like this :
    disk 1 > game name disk 1
    disk 2 > game name
    so that way, when WiiFlow automatically adds the "disk 2" it end up like this
    disk 1 > game name disk 1
    disk 2 > game name disk 2

    (Just an idea)

    Using custom_titles.ini to change the name of gamecube games makes the case color appear white instead of black... Better use WIT/Wiims ISO Tools in this case...

    Sorry, I didn't realize giving you the simple version would cause that problem. Here's the rest of the details.
    You can change the color with the custom_titles.ini, too. There are only red, white, and black as options. White will be used if you don't specify one of the other two.
    Code:
    
    [TITLES]
    GameID=RED game
    Game02=BLACK game
    Other1=WHITE game
    
    [COVERS]
    GameID=#FF0000FF
    Game02=#000000FF
    
    Note : those 0 are number zero's and not letter O's
    Just in case, here's the WiiFloWiki page about that file.

    I'm aware of this... In fact, there are more colors we can use:


    // For RED use #FF0000FF
    // For BLACK use #000000FF
    // For YELLOW use #FCFF00
    // For GreenOne use #01A300
    // For GreenTwo use #00E360

    However, for gamecube games, when you set the title of a game then the case color becomes white and you can't change it to black. Other colors works but not black.

    In Wiiflow the default case color for gamecube games is black. But when you change de title of the game, the case color becomes white. I tried using both ID6 and ID3.
    That's why I used the Wit Tool for renaming the title within the ISO of the game. Just in case someone wants to use it, these are the commands:

    Wit List -T0
    List the titles in the header of the ISO's.

    Wit Rename -s game.iso id6=,"New Title"
    Rename the title of a specific ISO.

    Hmm, that's a good point. I'll have to make a bug report to have that fixed. What version / revision of WiiFlow are you using?
