- Loading games from .wbfs files on a FAT partition
Changes since 46b:
* Support for direct launching of games from fat
(Useful for game channel launching, using loadstructor or similar tool)
To specify direct loading from fat, the parameter has to be in form: #GAMEID-X
Where X is 0-3 for wbfs and 4-9 for fat partitions (4 means first fat partition)
* Automatically switch to ios222 in case ios249 is used for starting games from fat
* Only allow IOS 222 and 223 in game options if fat partition is selected
* Improved drawing speed in some coverflow gui modes
Changes since 45:
cfg v46b (beta)
* Added option: partition = [WBFS1], ..., WBFS4, FAT1, ..., FAT9, ask
* Saving global settings will also save current selected partition
* Increased fat cache size in IOS module
* Load FAT module in IOS early in case config has:
ios=222-mload (or ios=223-mload) and partition=FAT*
So that IOS does not need to be reloaded another time before
starting the game from a FAT partition
* Added indication in global options if [FAT] module is loaded in IOS
cfg v46a2 (alpha2)
* Faster loading of game list from a fat partition - should be instant now.
The only thing that has a slight delay is showing the hdd free space
in console mode game list (if it is enabled)
* Create game info file after installing on a FAT partition named:
usb:/wbfs/GAMEID_TITLE.txt This makes it easier to tell the titles
of installed games when using a filesystem explorer
* Rephrased the warning message when no WBFS partition found
* Allow to select partition if no wbfs partition is found and disable_format is on.
* Minor cleanups in partition selection
cfg v46a (alpha)

be located and named like this: usb:/wbfs/GAMEID.wbfs

Profiles can be added, deleted and reordered with this option. But if you want to rename, you must also change the profile name in the file settings.cfg, otherwise it will be considered a new name and former name will be "forgotten" the next time you save the settings . Profiles can be changed in the menu of general options. Change the parameters of a favorite game is feasible from the menu of game options, as usual.
option: profile = name to be specified for the default profile, which serves to safeguard the global configuration settings, back up the profile that uses it.
- Fixed minor switching between favorites in the console.
- Updated file / apps / ... / meta.xml when an update is downloaded. So the correct version is displayed in the HBC.

uhhm...which app let you make a .wbfs file?
I have nearly all WBFS tools available but the only formats are .ciso and .wbi.
I dont really looked at the wbfs driiver but it would be totally useless to convert the game for a wbfs partition and then copy them over to a fat partition.
Beside that no tool let you chooce a fat partition to add games to it.
