    Hi Guys here are some questions about WiiFlow:
    1. Can I play custom Mario Kart tracks using WiiFlow?
    2. How can I load WBFS games from a FAT32 HDD w/o formatting the HDD to WBFS?
    3. Regarding question #2; In What folder will I put the WBFS Games at?
    4. Can WiiFlow load ISO Games from the HDD? If yes, In What folder?
    5. About the covers, Do I need to download all the Covers,3D Covers, and Discs to show all the info about the game?
    6. If I dump a game to my HDD, Will it be in .iso or .wbfs? Where will the game be saved?
    7. How much time(Estimation) does a game need to be dumped to a HDD?
    8. Can I load cheatcodes from WiiFlow?
    9. What WiiFlow version do you recommend: 1.1 or 2.2?
    10. Does WiiFlow require any IOS,CMIOS,CIOS etc?
    11. If I load a Theme, Will it be automatically installed in the WiiFlow channel?
    12. I converted a WiiFlow forwarder to a full system wad using Costumize Mii by injecting the new dol file of WiiFlow. Is it already converted to a full system wad?

    Hi.
    1.Yep.
    2.Sure.
    3.Check out WiiBackupManager.
    4.Yeah, same folder structure like WiiBackupManager uses.
    5.YOU don't need to download something, Wiiflow will download everything you need for you.
    6.It will be saved as .wbfs by default and will be saved on the same place, you can select the partition where you want to save it. It will be saved in the same folder structure like WiiBackupManager.
    7.That's very fast sometimes, I would say like 10 minutes for a normal game.
    8.Of course.
    9.Check out the wiiflow topic and use the latest 3.0alpha versions, they are very good.
    10.Every usb loader needs a cIOS, if you check out the wiiflow topic you'll see where you get everything.
    11.Themes are currently not very stable, better don't use them.
    12.Don't do this, it will give you no advantages.

    Id imagine Wiiflow uses similar folderstructure as the other loaders, so something like:
    usb://wbfs/gametitle[gameid]/gameid.iso
    usb://wbfs/gameid/gameid.iso
    usb://wbfs/gametitle_[gameid]/gametitle_[gameid].iso
    usb://wbfs/gameid.iso
    usb://wbfs/gametitle_[gameid].iso.
    I cant guarantee every structure I listed works though.

    But theres little to no reason to use .iso files on the Wii. Its just a waste of space. Also, you cant fit .iso files on a fat32 partition (4GB filesize limit, .iso is ~4.5GB each)
    Just use Wii Backup Manager to transfer your games. It will automaticly put the game in the correct folder structure, name it correctly, and coverting it to .wbfs saving a ton of space, as well as splitting the file if its bigger than 4GB.

    If you want it moved, report it... No point writing a post just to say that. Its about as useful as this post.
