    So I used Superdump to rip my game.

    I dumped them into parts and now they're in files such as 0.bin, 1.bin and 2.bin.

    I have done this several times before for this section but I am feeling bored right now:

    On windows.

    The command line copy is what you want
    This being said you will need to modify the input, the modifier you want is "b"
    The copy program/command is remarkably dumb so you are going to have to tell it to do everything including
    what files you want to merge and in what order, you do this by stringing the names of the files together with a + symbol
    what the file you want to make is called. This comes after the string of files to be merged

    The command will ultimately look something like
    copy /b 0.bin+1.bin+2.bin+3.bin newwiiiso.iso

    If you need a way to get a nice long list of files then dir /b >>a.txt will make a file called a.txt that contains the names of all the files in the directory you run it in.
