    I have WIIScrubber 1.4, how can I tell if a game has an update or not? I know it is located under (_sys) but for 1 particular game I see 2 (_update.inf) one of them has (_update.inf.TWN) is that the update one? thanks

    EVERY game has an Update. It's the Update-Partition which contains it (doh!). You can even see the .wads there, if you look in the right place.

    partition 0 = update partition
    partition 1 = Game
    easy as that

    are you referring to the (RVL-WiiSystemenu-v386.wad)? I want to delete the update partition then burn it without the update partition, thanks

    just use a brickblocker on the game ISO before you burn

    or use a system menu hack to remove update detection. like in preloader or startpatch. or use a backup loader it will ignore it anyway. updates will be necessary if it finds an outdate IOS, so if the game disc has the same files as on your wii it will not prompt for updating.

    actually it's for my brother in law's Wii, he's not that hardcore about Wii hacking, just certain games he likes, then asks me to burn him a DVD of that game, so I just want to take out the update partition and burn the new game ISO for him but how do I tell what is the update partition in WIIScrubber 1.4? thanks

    just make the ISO file and run it through Wiizle Diizle Shiizle or WIU1.1 and it'll tell you if there's an update and if it's for your region and you can remove the update partition and burn

    I do it to every burn

    well that's another problem too since his Wii is USA version, some games are PAL or JAP versions?

    you can patch the region of the game with the same programs and pre/priiloader or startpatch hacks for region free wii games
