    I was wondering if there was a way of changing a dual layered game so that it can be burned and played on a single layered back-up disc? Thanks in advance for any help.

    yes, can be done

    1) remove unneeded partitions (update, ...)

    2) find files you can live without (cinematics, music, audio track, ...)
    and replace them with the smallest file of its type that you can find
    eg Other M was made single layer by making every cinematic the same one

    What program do I use that allows me to do that?

    Aside from that, is it possible to make it a multi-disc even though the game isn't innately a multi-disc game

    One: Use wiiscrubber or find a scrubbed version of the game
    Two: lol

    actually that is possible too

    in every disc you make, keep some of the files you replace in there original state

    working out when to change disc will be tricky though
    best I can think of is trial and error
    like if the wrong cinematic shows up reset, change disc and reload an old save

    note: if you are doing this not for the fun of it, but for another reason the result might not be worth it

    Even though the wii's laser can have a harder time reading a burnt game
    It is worth it to some.

    With the files that are to be replaced, do I replace them with compressed or converted files that reduce their size? I'm doing this for the sake of playing a certain dual layered game straight through without alterations that would drastically change the main features of the game (XB Chronicles PAL)

    could be possible too
    but I doubt the saved space would suffice
    and I'm reasonably sure that someone capable of figuring out how to compress them better
    while still staying compatible with the decompresser would not ask these questions

    If you like to tinker go ahead, but even if you pull it off I think we reached a point where simply importing it would be both cheaper and faster.

    Winrar can help you browse files inside an .iso.

    I don't use winrar but
    you know that wii ".iso"s do not contain the iso filesystem (aka iso9660 or cdfs)
    people just insist on calling then that for some idiotic reason

    What do you use?

    Also, I know nothing about the iso filesystem, but the game is the iso and as such that is where one would remove un-needed content.

    Don't see the importance of it but I use midnight commander or ark for most file compression tasks,
    mount and growisofs for real isos,
    and wiimm's wit for wii images

    yes he would need to remove the files from the iso
    but the so called wii "iso"s are not isos at all
    winrar might be able to open them too, but I really doubt it
    but as I don't use it I can't check
    did you try it?

    Actually, thanks for that, I've been wondering why they wouldn't work in UltraISO, and apparently it doesn't work in Winrar either, I'll try the tools you said later.

    I know I wasn't the one who made this thread, but thanks, your posts helped.

    Would this, by chance, have anything to do with Xenoblade Chronicles?
