3+hrs and still cant get boxart working on wiiflow

3 posts in this topic

Hi all, I'm currently working on a Wii arcade machine project ATM and I am almost complete with the Wii's side of things except that I'm stuck with getting the coverart to load.

I am using wiiflow 4.2.3 mastermod pack, everything is running as needed, but can't get box covers working at all "except Wii and GC".. I have read through pages of forums have watched videos on YouTube and still can't prevail on this issue I have made sure the png's have .Zip at the end made sure the .Ini files are pointing in the right direction.. And still Wiiflow will not find the box art. I have put them in the boxcover folder I have put them in the root, so many different places i have lost count

current .ini file

[PLUGIN]
displayname=FBA CPS1
magic=43505331
coverfolder=WiiFlow/boxcovers/cps1 ?? etc neogeo... mame...cps2  " i have tried lowercase wiiflow"
dolfile=wiiflow/fba_cores_cps1.dol
romdir=fba_alpha/roms/CPS1
filetypes=.zip
consolecoverid=
covercolor=ffffff
bannersound=CPS1.ogg
arguments={device}:/{path}/|{name}

 

Any help will be amazing

@ballbreaker88 - the .ini's default location is wiiflow/boxcovers.  So if your covers are in wiiflow/boxcovers/cps1 - you would only have to enter cps1 as the cover folder.  That's how I have mine setup, and here is my .ini file.

[PLUGIN]
arguments={device}:/{path}/|{name}
bannersound=fba_cps1.ogg
consolecoverid=
covercolor=ffffff
coverfolder=CPS1
displayname=FBA CPS1
dolfile=retroarch-wii/fba_cores_cps1_libretro_wii.dol
filetypes=.zip
magic=43505331
romdir=retroarchroms/CPS1/
