Only 1 bug that affecting me at least since the start of this project and I would like to explain if possible!

If a game is already added and I use to add some more game with 1 or more already in the list of installed game the tools show me RED cross to show me that the game have been rejected because this one have been already installed, so far all is fine and I press clear button to remove newadded or rejected done list. If I leave the the tools open and go back to windows to delete the ISO that I added including the rejected games in the last batch I cannot delete rejected game the tools seem to keep those files open or something like that and windows donnot allow me to delete them until I close the tool WBFS manager. As soon as the tools is closed I can delete any rejected ISO.

Thanks in advance to fix this issue.
Really small bug.

Hey!  We need to fix them all to reach perfection ;)

Sorry for my bad english....

Only bug i've noticed is during batch extraction. If any iso name has : in the title, it fails to extract (gives a file that is 0 bytes big)

Thanks Troy and good thing you mentioned the : part. I know exactly what the issue is now. : is an illegal character for filenames. (doh) J

I've made a few bug fixes to version 2.5, so redownload it if your having any of these issues:
  • All games regions were incorrectly being detected as NTSC on the right-hand list
  • Games with “:” in the name were failing during batch extract operations.
  • Fixed an issue with dragging and dropping folders not detecting RAR files inside the folder and only detecting ISO files.

Fixed the issue with incorrect estimated sizes for some games.

Note: If any other WBFS tools out there are having this issue, please let the author know that theres a bug in libwbfs here:
in wbfs_estimate_disc:
return tot * ((p->wbfs_sec_sz / p->hd_sec_sz) * 512);
it should be
return tot * (((p->wbfs_sec_sz*1.0) / p->hd_sec_sz) * 512);
and you should be returning a float, so fix the method's signature.

Thanks for the great tool!

I have tried it with about 30 iso and rar files and noticed these problems:

- even I have selected "download covers" in options and also added my personal cover
  image folder (which contains all these mentioned covers) some covers are not shown,
  e.g. RMFP68, RCBP52, RTRP18 and RGJP7U.

- at the bottom of the window there is a status "Blocks used: xxxx". At least for
  me the number there goes smaller when I add something to WBFS. It seems
  to show free blocks --> should be "Blocks free: xxxx".

- Scandinavian language variant discs (having letter 'X' in the fourth position in ID)
  are recognized as "RF" (I guess that means Region Free). They are not region
  free but PAL (as Scandinavian is part of the Europe).
     + de Blob R6BP78 is a central european language variant (recognized as "PAL")
     + de Blob R6BX78 is a scandinavian language variant (recognized as "RF")

I have the release 2.5.  I have tried 2 external USB drives.  I can't format anyone to the format WBFS.  With the WII, I format WBFS, i dumpted a game, i used it, but with WBFS manager 2.5, I cant see anything.

Can you help me ?

I reported yesterday a problem related to cover showing.
Well, I did have my own covers in a wrong format, so forget that report.

But, I have noticed that sometimes covers are shown somehow
scaled up or down even all images are 160x225 resolution. This happens
regardeless I have my own folder specified or not (and then downloaded
covers are used).

Another thing - the precision of time in progress window it one thousandth
of the second. That's pretty accurate! I think accuracy of one second is enough
(and it would look better) for humans like us.

500 game limit?

I am using ver 2.5 and have 500 games on the drive - there
is space for more games, however, when I try to add more
it says they xfer fine but the count does not go to 501 and
the game really doesn't install.

*note* I just updated to v3.01 and still has the same bug.
It indicates the game xfers fine but it doesn't.

I tried from dos and got the following:

no space left on device (table full): No error

Does this mean there is a 500 game limit to wbfs regardless of disc size?
