    The covers are fine. I'm saying that it's likely your theme that's causing it.

    If you backup your theme and resize a dozen of the larger images to 1x1 and then everything starts to work again then it'll confirm that it's a memory issue.

    @biggzsizzle to see how much memory you are using, you can edit wiiflow_lite.ini and in the [DEBUG] section enable it with:
    show_mem=yes

    Maybe you could rename your WiiFlow folders and then start over with a fresh copy of WiiFlow? That way you'll be back at the stock settings. Alternatively if you send me a copy of your theme then I'd test things and try to debug the issue if I experience the same problem.

    Just finished my Project with 452 PAL GC and 1209 PAL Wii on a 4TB MyPassport WD Drive! Clearly WiiFlow Lite can handle the amount of games other then stated on github issues. No big problems so far for me :)

    @ All
    What do I have to change so that Wii game saves also end up on the HDD like GC saves?

    @blackb0x So, here's my No-Source version and the original Carbonix:

    @biggzsizzle I can now confirm that it's caused by an out of memory error. Simply put, your themes consuming so much memory that there's not enough available to download wiitdb.zip.

    If I disable "Use HQ covers", view some games and then attempt to download the database it'll work.

    I'll see if I can optimise your theme so that it works with HQ covers.

    is it possible to only have certain plugins or system icons available. I have so many different systems and I don't need them all...

    From the main source_menu page, hit the Home button on the wiimote, the first option allows you to show which systems you want to see

    I see hide source buttons but it only gives me the option for wii menu, arcade, retro consoles, handhelds, and retro computers. I was hoping for more specifically the consoles within these folders.

    @biggzsizzle Everything is looking and working great. Thank you for your work done here. I have a few background requests if you have any spare time. I'd love to see Colecovision & ScummVM get a background. C64 and Intellivision would be cool also. Very nice you have already included OpenBOR. Your theme is a welcome addition to WFL. Thanks again.

    @fledge68 Is it possible that wii games also store the savegames on HDD like the GC saves from nintendont?

    Long answer: You can use emunand but no, it is not like the way nintendont does. You will have to have a bit in depth knowledge to locate the saves and not all Wii games are compatible

    So, I decided to to narrow down a playable SD-friendly setup, using only wiiflow and the wii games and gc games, roms etc.that I play the most, right? Used wbm to transfer the games, deleted my wiiflow_lite.ini just because I dont mind reconfiguring. Game populate, cache's all reloaded with no issue.
    But not 1 wii game will load. The show the wiiflow wait_imgs, then reloads back into WiiFlow. Keep in mind nothing has changed except there's no usb anymore, everything configured for SD.

    That might be your problem. :) I know you probably know all this, but just in case, first try to "Reload Cache." If that doesn't solve it, run through the basic variations… cIOS 249 / cIOS 250 / cIOS 251, each with Force Reload cIOS "ON" and then "OFF." I suggest this, only because I've had the same issue in the past when switching from USB to SD, and I found that a different cIOS setting did the trick. And I've never had good luck with cIOS 249 with an SD.
