    I apologize if this is in the wrong section but can anyone comment on why....

    "Metroid Other M PROPER USA WII-WiiTARD" fits on DVD5...

    when the pre-released "underdumped" version is around 8 gb... Does anyone have knowledge of differences between the two releases? Has anyone played all the way through with the underdumped version?

    Thanks in advance...

    People often make DVD5 versions of dual-layer games.

    They're fully playable but have the movies (generally the most space consuming portion of a game) replaced with much smaller ones, and if I understand correctly, the same one.

    In fact there's a short tutorial on making a DVD5 Other M ISO right on these forums.

    yes thank you for your quick reply... I am aware of all the things you mentioned... already read that thread too...

    Let me rephrase the question... How can a DVD5 RIPPED version of a game be called PROPER?!

    is the underdumped version a leaked beta? is the retail game a dual layer disc or a single layer?

    I'm just assuming "PROPER", in this case, means it's a re-release of a previously nuked dump.

    It may have been leaked, but not a beta. The retail game uses a dual layer disc.

    can you not read that the "proper" is a bad dump, therefor its also nuked, wait for a REAL PROPER i guess......right now youre better off with the ind release as all its missing is the update files

    thanks DaMummy!

    If all that is missing from the game is UPDATE partition, then I don't care about that anyway. Thanks again.
