    Hi i dont know if im posting in the right place, cause im new here. I was wondering how to make a wii game very small. My friend gave me a copy of his Hew Super Mario Bros. Wii and the file load on my flash drive at only 0.35 GB on WBFS Manager 3.0. Doing the math that comes out to between 300-600 Mib. Is there any way to get a game such as Resident Evil 4 to that size? Thanks [​IMG]

    No
    that because some wii games dont have lots of data, like wii play (100MB) and Nintendo
    inserts garbage data to make the size of a dvd

    Then how would i make them as small as i possibly can and remove as much possible garbage data as possible?

    If the game is in wbfs file format it is already smaller.

    as an iso file, removing the data is called "scrubbing", just look for any prog which is able to do it.

    adittionally many scrubbing progs can remove the game's partition with the update files, so it can become even a bit smaller

    ...however scrubbing the ISO itself won't make the ISO file shrink, the ISO will just be smaller when you compress it as a zip or rar or something similar.

    what about trimming the iso? I'm just trying to figure out how a 4.37 GB game like new super mario bros wii was able to get that small.

    already was answered, certain games only have small amounts of data, but in most cases games use majority of the 4.7 gb.

    No game is 4.37GB, that's the size of the disk.
