    Look at this bootleg 3 in 1 Collection:

    This is the type of screen you would get upon boot:

    My question is, how would you put 3 500- 700mb games onto 1 disc?? Is there a certain tool??

    I highly doubt each game is anywhere near 500-700mb AFTER dummy data and padding is removed.

    DBZ is 52mb dl (zipped)

    It's probably just a custom basic binary selector, choose which bin, and launch.

    Download/RIP any 3-in-1 you can find and examine the structure. Swap other games in/out and I bet you can hex edit the selector to change the names.

    Someone has uploaded a Dragonball 3 in 1. I'll burn it to a CD/Virtual Drive to see the contents of the iso.

    Most archive managers (like 7-Zip) can open ISO files directly. You don't have to burn it first.

    I remember the 3-in-one games, I had one that combined Crash, Crash 2, and Crash 3 onto one disc so i could play it on my PSP as the ISO was smaller than just Crash itself due to dummy data being absent.

    I remember those disc's from back off the day.
    I think they rip most off the CDDA music (just normal audio tracks), replace movies with dummy files to save space.
    Little the same thing as those Twilight warez cd's ;)

    Well, the Crash multi disc managed to not do that. I am not a fan of rips like some are but it is nice to have multi-game discs where all the content is there.
