    name the games and someone could confirm but if you scrub the game or convert it to a wbfs file then you should be able to fit both on there in most cases

    I forgot
    If they're in WBFS format they're at the smallest they'll be without removing data.

    fst extracted games are smaller, but you can only play them with a neek setup.

    You could try using Wii Backup Manager to remove the update partitions (they're left by default), but you probably won't be able to fit both of those games on an 8GB USB drive.

    Yes, you can, and everyone here is an idiot. TLS should be especially easy. Just remove late-game cutscenes and make a separate ISO for when you get towards the end of the game that removes the early-game cutscenes and has the late-game ones.

    MW3 would be a little harder. I'm guessing there's not much video data for you to remove. You can probably cut out some single-player stuff if you're only playing multiplayer, or vice-versa.

    Anyway, nobody is going to help you with the specifics because they don't care. This is a use case specific only to you, and we're not going to do it for you. Extract every file from both games to your PC with WIT or QTWitGUI. WIT by itself requires some basic command-line knowledge that is likely to throw you off. Then look through the games, erase what you can, and use WIT etc. to get the files back into an ISO.

    Try to use WiiBackupManager to convert the WBFS file into a cISO file.
