    I'm trying to download a few Wii U games but my internet bandwidth limit has been exceeded and shit so I have to be careful with file sizes. So I was wondering if there was a way to check the file size of a game before downloading it? Right now I'm using the Brazilian game method.
    (trying to check the amazing spiderman game right now)

    You could Google for "game name size"

    Of course I did that, but sadly it turned up weird results.

    Most games are the right size. Just check the .app and .hX files. If any are 0 bytes then it is a bad dump.

    That will still give the op an idea of whether or not the download is complete which I'm assuming is why he is this question.

    I don't need to check the files to see if my download is complete, all the programs which download the encrypted files usually either show it is complete or the program closes.
    And also no, I didn't ask the question cause of that, in fact, the reason why I asked such a question is also in the OP...
