@leseratte does do_new_wiimmfi_nonMKWii() need to be applied to wiiware games or just wii games only?
There are indeed WiiWare games that need the new patch, so if possible this should be applied to WiiWare, too. Though, I don't think I ever tested that particular implementation with a WiiWare game.

It appears in wiiflow game booter its only applied to wii games in apploader.c. not found in channel loader for channels.

Not sure if I'm in the right spot. First off thanks to all for there hard work. Question on how to get blank cover art going. I have the blank covers named as the corresponding magic numbers. Also they are in boxcovers as instructed. Do they need to go into another folder? I have them at the root of boxcovers. Also do they have to be the game file name as in .zip.png like the covers have to? I'm at the end of a marathon and I just need to fix the last couple things. Thanks again!!

as runningsnakes pointed out. they go in dev:/wiiflow/boxcovers/blank_covers/
and you must have platform.ini because we use that to convert the magic number to the platform name. so the filename should be nes.png, megadrive.png, or gba.png to name a few.

Im using Abz Wiiflow Masterpiece pack and im having a problem with the music name display sticking in the middle of the screen. Is there a way to turn the name display off? It covers all the coverart when looking at the games.

look in wiiflow.ini under [GENERAL] for 'display_music_info' and set it to 'no'. that will prevent any song title from displaying. but it should disappear after 3 seconds so i don't know why it stopped doing that for you.

but why on earth are you still using such an old version of wiiflow? why not wiiflow lite?

Because i like the look and simplicity of it. Its been working just fine. Ive been using this since i first modded it back in 2016. i placed all the cover art in it and if i switched to wiiflow lite i would have to start over.
Newer is not always better. Thats just my opinion.
Thank You for the information. That fixed the problem.

Is there a way to have both USB port working at the same time? because I would like using a controller for one port and an ethernet LAN Adapter for the other one

@JasonH

You are correct, newer isn't always better. In this case however it is 100%!

Imagine watching a half hour fireworks display on a black & white television in the kitchen while a brand new color television is available in the living room. Unless you are colorblind......

and really all he has to do is backup his apps/wiiflow folder and dev:/wiiflow folder then if anything goes wrong or he doesn't like wiiflow lite he can just restore those folders.

plus he doesn't have to use rhapsodii shima theme if he doesn't like it.

but to be fare its his choice.

@fledge68

I have come across a problem in latest Rhapsodii Shima.ini release. This does not occur when using WFL default theme. It is very possible it is on my end by editing Shima theme but it did not exist until this latest release and reverting to older .ini file fixes the issue.

While on EmuNAND all VC and WiiWare show and play properly. However if I go to...

Settings>
NAND Emulation Settings> Set
Install Wad> Go

Path=
sd:/
usb:/

these settings are offset to the right without the ability to choose a path to install a .wad.
