    I have all my Wii and GC covers good. That isn't the problem. I put a GBA game into a folder, edited the INI to see that folder as the ROMs folder for vbagxgba, and the rom showed up. I changed the INI to see the folder I put my cover into as the cover folder for vbagxgba. It didn't show up. The game is "Pokemon - FireRed Version (USA, Europe) (Rev 1).gba", so I naturally named the cover "Pokemon - FireRed Version (USA, Europe) (Rev 1).gba.png". Why isn't it working? I know I did the folder structure right because the ROM showed up after I edited the INI.

    Romdir and coverfolder are not managed the same way.
    Romdir is a complete path, coverfolder is relative to wiiflow/boxcovers
    So, for example if you have your covers in wiiflow/boxcovers/vgba, your .INI line should be
    coverfolder=vgba

    Also, remember to always reload cache each time you add or change covers

    Thank you. I couldn't figure this out no matter how hard I tried.

    I have the same problem, I can see and play all the roms but covers never appear.

    Here's an example with NES (but could have been with MD, GB or anything else).


    fceugx.ini

    [PLUGIN]
    displayname=FCEUltraGX
    magic=46434555
    coverfolder=NES
    dolfile=fceugx-mod12.dol
    romdir=ROMS/NES
    filetypes=.nes|.zip
    consolecoverid=nintendo
    covercolor=ff0000
    bannersound=nes.ogg
    arguments={device}:/{path}|{name}|{loader}


    Covers path (coverfolder) | Roms path (romdir)

    I keep seeing empty boxes on Wiiflow. What am I doing wrong?

    Thank you,

    Thanks for your help, actually my first try had been with the sequence that you suggested, but since it didn't work I renamed both without .nes (as per screenshot). The issue, however, persists. :/

    Filename.extension.png is required. Did you reload cache after you renamed your covers?
    Do you see any .wfc file in wiiflow/cache/NES?
    If you do, delete them and reload cache again.

    Have you tried downloading via the app? Then observe the naming structure and replace any customs to your liking.

    I'm not sure if this will work with wiiflow, but I've done this with several other apps

    You can only download Wii, GC and VC/Wiiware covers with Wiiflow. Their covers are named after the game ID's.
    For the emulators it's a different naming convention.

    Copy the NES folder in the COVERS folder, not boxcovers, that is how i have it and works perfect, also your image names have to be with the rom format, example, zelda.nes.png, like you were told.

    the 'covers' folder is for 2D covers (Front covers only).
    If you want 3D covers the 'boxcovers' folder is where they need to be
