  • fix for music sample rates >48k
  • officially added the clear CD case spine skin image. In your plugin ini file use casecolor=111111.
  • fixed the page button of the source menu setup menu which sometimes said one too many pages.

  • added 480p pixel patch as option for nand wiiware/vc games. seems to only work if apploader is set to ON. loading via main dol is broke for the time being.

  • updated German, Spanish, Korean, and Polish languages thanks to Brawl345, RAVMN, DDinghoya, and KcrPL.
  • added Github CI. Continuos Integration workflows. (Leseratte)

Github CI - How it works and what it does:
Basically you make a fork of wiiflow lite. Clone it to your PC. make changes to the code. then commit your changes to your online fork. immediately after the commit CI will run a script which will download the proper devkitpro ppc and liboc to github servers, then it compiles and packages your fork of wiiflow in a zip file which you can download. just go to the actions link at the top of your github fork. click on the workflow and look under artifacts to find the zip. if your code changes fail to compile there will not be a zip to download.

  • removed - now when you have only the front cover image wiiflow will use that platform's custom blank cover image for the spine and back of the cover. committed in 5.4.7 it caused a second of black screen when selecting a source or tier.
  • fixed a crash in 5.4.7 when linking a source button to plugins.

  • added source menu setup via controller Home button while viewing source menu. Setup includes hide buttons, link buttons to plugins, and set roms path of plugins.

  • added wiiflow/covers/homebrew_small folder so when using homebrew smallbox mode you can use your own custom covers instead of the apps icon.png

  • added option to upsample/resample music audio to 48khz. code taken from wiixplorer thanks to dimok.

  • added 'Always show main icons' option page 14 of main settings. this prevents the main screen icons from hiding.

IMPORTANT! with this release you must replace your bins and imgs folders or wiiflow may crash. move or rename those folders to back them up in case you need to go back to previous version.


  • fixed crash when pressing 1/x or 2/y buttons (change coverflow layout) when no covers are loaded.
  • fixed hiding the wait loading animation when using source menu on start.
  • fixed exiting source menu on start via B button so covers show properly.
  • fixed launching GC games via devolution. (if you still use it)
  • fixed deleting wii games so that all the wbfs files are deleted.
  • fixed using homebrew icon.png's with transparency as covers for smallbox by restoring some old code I didn't understand.
  • fixed a potential issue if using the source select icon on main screen with no source menu.
  • added 'no games found in {roms folder path}' if wiiflow doesn't find any roms for a plugin. This will let you know where wiiflow and the plugin are looking for the roms.
  • spanish and korean languages updated. thanks DDinghoya and CrewMdk!

Blackb0x commits:

  • fixed missing cacheing covers for real nand channels if you add covers manually and do reload cache.
  • set riitag url to use https
  • prevent crash caused by debug logging when using gamercards
  • support paletted png images
  • optimized wiiflow images and converted all jpg to png because using png images seems to consume less memory
  • covers and banners download faster now
  • added check for incomplete downloads before saving. Downloads should only fail like this if your WiFi signal is poor, your internet connection is awful or the server is experiencing issues.
  • fixed video mode patching for PAL games.
  • tried fixing cacheing covers after downloading them. works better but still might not create cached covers. It's a low free mem2 error if using rhapsodii shima theme and having a lot of games. if covers do not appear after downloading then i suggest rebooting wiiflow and doing reload cache first thing or switch to wiiflow's default theme and then download the covers and then switch back to rhapsodii shima theme.

Lots of changes. Too many to list. Check the included text file for changes since last release (v5.2.0). Yes I skipped v5.3.0. Enjoy, just in time for Christmas!
