    When de-compressed, it's a fairly sizeable file at 128MB. I put it in the trimmer, and was getting a tad nervous because it never takes quite so long for a ROM to trim. Some time goes by, and voila'! Fifty-nine megs of fat trimmed off of that sucker. What could they possibly have put on that thing? [​IMG]

    So the game is actually 69MB... which is too big to fit in a 64MB cartridge, so they had to put it in the next highest cartridge, 128MB. 59MB of it is actually empty space.

    I've a feeling that ASH (Archaic Sealed Heat), which is supposed to be the first 256meg cart will be about the same way.

    Watch it trim to around 150.

    Thank God for trimming. I can trim FF3 from 128MB to about 90MB as well.

    Hey, Ray...

    Yeah, it surely will be interesting to see just how much of that cart they make use of. Either way, I've got a feeling that that particular game is gonna clog a lotta sites. It's been an incredible wait for it...

    Anyhoo, I'm gonna give DW a try later this evening, but I can't say I have high hopes for the game.

    I feel sorry for those who don't trim the ROM but just put it onto their card.

    I found it posted over in the TeamCyclops forum. Seems to work well.
