    I have a full RomSet for Gameboy and Advance games, and I am using vbagx on the WiiU. For some games I get an error message "7Z decompression failed: File uses too high of compression settings (dictionary is too large)."

    Is there any easy way around this.

    Thanks in advance.

    Sorry, I am using the virtual Wii. Not going to use RetroArch for the time being.

    No easy way, the Wii doesn't have enough memory to decompress that (vWii has the same limitation). You will need to use an uncompressed file or recompress it with a smaller dictionary size or any other settings that require more memory to decompress - you can check the requirements with the windows version of the 7-zip utility :)

    Ok, so I could just uncompress everything? Storage isn't a problem as I have a 2TB drive. Is there an easy way to uncompress everything at once.

    Thanks for your reply :)

    I'm not used to the specifics of vbagx, but in theory, you can :)

    For uncompressing everything into the same folder, 7-zip can help you in there too.
    If you're in macOS or *nix, you should try the p7zip or xz utility (command line)
