How to fix the COVER problems! (TO THE DEVELOPER!)

Dec 11, 2010 at 1:06 PM

Hello everyone and specially the Developer!

I am a Wii Backup manager user  for ever. The only thing that WBM lacks is the covers download. I found this in your software but it DOES NOT WORK! I've done some research in your forum for the solution but the solution presented here is not eficient.

Changing the from http://www.theotherzone.com to http://wiitdb.com does NOT resolve the issue completly because the Region Free (RF) covers are NOT downloaded due that http://wiitdb.com uses a diferent URL to download RF covers (http://wiitdb.com/wiitdb/artwork/cover/EN/xxxxxx.png).

Noticing that WBFSManager.exe.config does NOT have a line like...

</setting>
            <setting name="CoverLinkRF" serializeAs="String">
                <value>http://wiitdb.com/wiitdb/artwork/cover/EN/</value>
</setting>

and you software code does not recognize it even if you try to add it to WBFSManager.exe.config thus not recognizing the RF covers.

With all this in mind and knowing that CFG USB Loader usues the http://wiitdb.com database (because is the best! maybe!) why also not switch to use the http://wiitdb.com database in your own software and eliminate the cover issua once and for all by changing your code to regognize the above line in the WBFSManager.exe.config file?

Just make you code read the label "CoverLinkRF" and the code below in WBFSManager.exe.config would work fine for ALL kinds of covers!

 

            <setting name="CoverLinkNTSC" serializeAs="String">
                <value>http://wiitdb.com/wiitdb/artwork/cover/US/</value>
            </setting>
            <setting name="CoverLinkRF" serializeAs="String">
                <value>http://wiitdb.com/wiitdb/artwork/cover/EN/</value>
            </setting>
            <setting name="CoverLinkNTSCJ" serializeAs="String">
                <value>http://wiitdb.com/wiitdb/artwork/cover/JA/</value>
            </setting>
            <setting name="CoverLinkPAL" serializeAs="String">
                <value>http://wiitdb.com/wiitdb/artwork/cover/EN/</value>
            </setting>
            <setting name="CoverLinkKOR" serializeAs="String">
                <value>http://wiitdb.com/wiitdb/artwork/cover/JA/</value>
            </setting>

 

By fixing this I and I guess everyone else would be glad to use your great software and be able to get all covers without problems!

I hope this was of any help and we can see your software working 100%

Cheers,

André
