    I'm pretty sure hell would freeze before this could actually work... But is there some way to compress Tatsunoko vs. Capcom (Japanese) to be able to fit onto a 1 GB USB hard drive (Well... MP3 player with the headphone jack broken) so I can use it with Waninkoko's USB Loader?

    How big is the actual game? If it has a good number of movies in it I bet you could do something like Brawl DVD5 version. Although I don't know exactly how they edited it to work right.

    I don't think that's possible, as the WBFS size is 2.8G according to the Game Compatibility Wiki. If you were transfering it you could always break it into smaller archive pieces, but you wouldn't be able to run it through USB Loader that way.

    (You have an MP3 player that'll work on USB Loader? o.o)

    Well I don't know about how many movies it has. I haven't watched the entire game you know XD..
    And if there was some way to remove blank data taking up space, and deleting all movies, and then compressing that it might work, but I have no idea if that's possible

    You need WBFS formatted USB devices.
    Get into Animal Crossing:CF? It's only 400 or so MB.

    I love saying the name of this topic, it rolls off the tongue.

    Well what are some other games that get compressed under 1 GB?

    Almost anything that can be recognized by windows as a regular external partition can be formatted by WBFS Manager. It may not work with the Wii itself, but WBFS Manager doesn't use any special drivers, it just hooks into the existing windows ones.

    It's hardly worth the effect though, for 1GB, and I doubt any USB loader would recognize it.
