i am attempting to run WBFS files from USB on USBloaderGX, ive been using the program for the past year and never faced this issue until now.
As you likely know, homebrew requires your drives be configured to Fat32, and Fat32 can only hold files under 4GB, regardless of the empty space. how do i work around this problem? i have two 16GB USB flash drives, and i need to run Star wars the force unleashed, but its 4.07GB, thats .07GB too large, i wanted to run Brawl, but its several GB too big. Can i convert them to another file type to reduce space? can i try burning them to a disk and running that? ive tried looking around and every thread is either 5 years old or just says "nope, gotta convert to ExFat", but when i try that, homebrew crashes if i try to load the drive! and i dont wish to try NTFS even if it does work, because these are my only drives and i have no money to replace them, and i heard NTFS cuts down on the life expectancy.
Thank you in advance.

If you need a second Opinion for Confirmation - please always use the WiiBackup Manager for the Game Transfers,it splits the File(s) automatically for you.
Also it gives them the correct Folder and ID.

    No it's revenue and demand south park could argue has a bigger audience than family guy about the same

  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Family guy is worth 300mill south parks worth 1Bill according to the interwebs
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    @K3Nv2, probably cuz family guy is more disliked compared to south park
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    It just does the same formula south park can press buttons without going overboard
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    And bc most of the family guy budget is spent on the voice actors rather than on the animation
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Southpark could spend 30k on a animated dick and people would laugh at it
