    I downloaded the ones that are in this forum, in the HBC/CIOS installer it did say v10 beta52vwii, v10 Beta53vwii alt. I tried both and same error.

    Thanks for the mod, fledge!

    I use a Wii U that has two HDDs hooked up. Port0 is my WiiU HDD, and Port1 is my vWii HDD. This mod picks up on the vWii fine and everything loads correctly, but sometimes out of nowhere WiiFlow tries to access Port0. Seems to be with GCN games mostly. I tried reversing the ports, but then there was problems with the Wii U side.

    Got any suggestions?

    so wiiflow boots fine but sometime afterwards it may switch to Port0? can you give me an example of when it does it? like when booting a game or switching a source? and when it does it does it give an error msg or just crash? how do you know it's trying port0 and not port1? have to ask in order to know where to look in the code for the problem.

    PS. it should be noted that Nintendont doesn't work well with 2 USB HDD connected. this might be your problem.

    Port0: vWii HDD (partition 1: FAT32, partition 2: NTFS)
    Port1: WiiU HDD (formatted for Wii U use

    Both drives use a Y cable that is drawing power from an external USB hub behind the console.

    Port2: Wii U GCN Adapter (only connection, not the rumble wire, rumble wire is plugged into external USB hub behind console)
    Port3: empty

    This works fine with WiiFlow Lite. It picks up Port0 (USB1, part 1) for the GCN games and Port0 again (USB2, part 2) for the Wii games.

    For Nintendont, from what I am understanding of how it works, it is doing this:

    #Mount#
    Port3 = empty
    (skip)
    Port2 = not an HDD
    (skip)
    Port1 (Wii U HDD detected, attempt to use, error out)

    And it will never get to Port0.

    However I seem to have found a solution to this problem by starting Nintendont's application first via the HBC, and then exit. It picks up on the drive correctly if started this way. So it seems that it is only improperly loaded when called to from an external loader. It's not a massive problem as I don't have any real GCN games that I want to play currently, and most that I do play will be on my actual GCN.

    If you take any requests for WiiFlow Lite, might I ask for a "Return to" destination to the Wii U Menu (if using Wii U)? There is already a channel on vWii that lets you boot into it, but it seem to hang when used.

    so to clarify - after you start Nintendont via the HBC and then exit - 1. do you then start wiiflow lite and it works at launching a game via Nintedont? or 2. or are you saying that using nintendont via the HBC works but wiiflow lite always fails at port 1 wii u hdd?
    have you tried switching the drive's ports - vwii hdd on port 1 and wiiu hdd on port 0 - then start wiiflow/wiiflow lite and goto startup settings menu and change the port and reboot wiiflow/wiiflow lite?

    as for "return to" i assume you mean a "exit to" option. an exit to option should be possible but it would just launch that channel you mentioned.

    @GreyWolf
    so i was comparing wiiflow lite code and usbloader gx code and i found that wiiflow/wiiflow lite defines AHBPROT memory location as 0xCD800064 and usbloader gx defines it as 0x0D800064 which is the same as the one mentioned in hackmii post that talks about ben bushing discovering it.

    so is wiiflow wrong or is it just moved to a mem location almost identical to usbloader gx?

    edit: i think i figured it out. wiiflow is using a virtual address and usbloader gx uses the physical address. is this correct?

    I think it's supposed to be 0x0D800064. That's what the HBC. It looks like libruntimeiospatch is incorrect.

    Well, maybe not. Nintendont also uses 0xCD800064.

    EDIT: After looking around for a while it would appear that 0x0D800000 is the base address for the Starlet registers. I'm not sure if the 0xCD800000 base is an error or a duplicate of the other. I'll have to fiddle with GX and see what happens using only the former.

    Check the mem map on wiibrew
    http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Memory_Map

    The start and end address start with CD but the actuall address starts with OD. Thats why i think fix94 uses the virtual address and usbloadergx uses the physical address. They both work.

    Sounds like there's no reason to investigate then. :)

    Hello and sorry for my schoolboy English
    My question concerns wiiflow on vwii

    In the settings are there ways to set or use the WiiU Menu to leave wiiflow
    This would be handy
    We can already boot on wiiflow with HBL2HBC since the WiiU
    Would be top not to be forced to go through the MS to return on the WiiU

    Thank you​

    No but thats a good idea and shouldn't be hard to add to the exit to choices. There may be a patch or update soon.

    Or how to change the forwarder image of HBL2HBC

    Thanks fledge68

    Hi Fledge. Wii enthusiasts sure are lucky to have your continual involvement updating wiiflow. Lite is an awesome experience. Thanks for all you've done with it.
    I have some fun covers I enjoy looking at but I also enjoy using the random select a game option. The thing is, when a random game is selected it immediately starts booting it up with no chance to admire the cover or flip it over to read stuff on the back. Since you changed the button activation settings in selecting random game (i.e. no longer press "z" over the question mark, but now hold "b" and press "-") and since the hold "b" and press "dpad up/down" still cycles through alphabet... Do you think you'd ever have any interest in implementing a select random game which just selects the close up cover view?
